Genuine question: people still use SCCS?
WaffleMonster, I believe you hit the nail on the head - the key is differentiate between bandwidth management and discrimination or preferential treatment. The problem will be how to clearly draw the line between them.
This doesn't seem like much of a problem to me. If your pipes are at a capacity that you need to prioritize certain traffic, you do it based on the service—video, VoIP, P2P, et cetera—regardless of source, and that's bandwidth management. If your pipes are at any capacity and you throttle a specific source of traffic, that's discrimination. Do you see any problems with that as a bright line?
Is it just me or do the people who want you to work in open offices sound like the nobility in Downton Abbey?"
It's just you, since I don't watch Downton Abbey. Make a reference to Doctor Who and I might get it, though.
That is probably because everywhere I've worked, one of the first things I make sure works is a way for the source management, bug tracking, and release management systems to reference each other.
You might be interested in Fossil then.
Pithy and funny.
But, as I said to those making the joke when it went around last year, apparently untrue. It seems from (admittedly, purely casual) searching that cancer outcomes are actually somewhat better in the US than in Europe, at least for some kinds of cancer. The National Center for Policy Analysis, a "non-partisan think tank," has a page from 2007 on this with cites to appropriate studies; and a 2011 British Department of Health policy document entitled "Improving Outcomes: A Strategy for Cancer" admits (p. 7) that England's cancer outcomes are below the European average.
Only a very small number of transactions would have been failed anyway for insufficient funds, etc., and these are reconciled when that part of the system is restored to service... meaning there's very little loss to the provider for this.
Right. And if EBT payments did likewise, it'd be a headline in some newspaper that Sen. Local voted for allowing welfare recipients to receive benefits to which they weren't otherwise entitled.
Not a commentary or criticism; simply a statement of fact.
Bennett Haselton makes me miss Jon Katz.
I woudn't mind compiling from the source if there was an easy way to uninstall an application afterwards.
I believe what you're looking for is GNU stow.
It's "one-one-five-ium" from the Latin word for "one" and Greek for "five."
Commenting to undo an unmeant moderation.
to choose between John Jackson (with his 2-cent tax that "goes too far") and Jack Johnson (with his 2-cent tax that "doesn't go far enough").
I think you mean that Johnson's 2-cent tax "doesn't go too far enough." Don't let their identical DNA fool you.
Civilization is expensive. If it's not worth paying for a trial, it's not worth imprisoning someone. The cost of a jury trial should be incentive for the state to imprison as few people as possible.
Stipulated, at least for the sake of argument.
How then should civilization discourage behavior such as this student's, in your opinion?
