That's exactly the sort of "do as I say, not as I do" bull that I hate to see from politicians. They think they know what's best for everyone, but don't abide by the same rules.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
That's how I do my version numbers. Today would be 20150213. Simple and also has the bonus of giving the exact build date.
I think millions and millions of tablets are used every day, but sales have peaked because the tablets people have already bought are still working fine.
I've run a small business with VB for 20 years. Commercial software and database, website CGIs, order system, all written and maintained in-house. I know VB inside and out and it does everything I need for this (relatively simple) operation.
Maybe VB teaches "bad habits" but properly written and commented code is more important than the language.
It needs to be smooth, it needs to be organized. The OS needs to stay out of the way and not over-complicate things. We are there to run applications, not Windows. Windows needs to run and organize files and applications, that's it.
A simple file copy shouldn't take several minutes to start. When I say copy, start copying! We need Windows, not tiles. Windows is the name of the OS after all, and IMO the Windows paradigm still works. They need to preserve backward compatibility except when it would too badly affect performance or security. And I don't think it would or else MS themselves wouldn't be recommending DOSBOX to run 16-bit applications.
Apparently everyone should be allowed to dance around naked smoking weed and singing "Lalalalala I fuck your mother' and you can't say a damn thing about it. Because they're not hurting anyone, just ignore them.
I mean I'm only being partly sarcastic, maybe they should be able to. But what kind of a zoo is the world going to be if everyone can just spout out any sort of nonsense they want at any time under the umbrella of free speech?
There have to be some sort of limits, it's defining the limits that is the tricky part.
Personally I maintain my own directory structure and use an OLD version of ThumbsPlus to view the photos. It is also good for things like batch converting and rotation.
I have an Incoming folder for unsorted-direct-from-camera photos, then when I sort them out I make folders with a naming scheme like this:
YYYYMMDD - Hiking on Blue Ridge Parkway
I also make a folder for miscellaneous pictures for each year named YYYY0000 - Miscellaneous.
I don't even thing the punishment should be greater. Just any punishment at all would be a huge improvement and more fair IMO.
If you had to rent Windows I'd definitely give Steam for Linux a try.
I haven't paid a cent for Google Play services. I have downloaded dozens of apps, but all were free and I've never given Google any credit card information.
The calls I've received say something like (in an Indian accent) "This is Robert from Windows, we are calling because it has been reported your computer has errors and is sending them over the Internet."
I've also given them the "Does your mother know what you do for a living?" line. They try to justify what they're doing and I cut them off and say "You're a scammer and you're stealing people's money and you should be ashamed." That's when they hang up.
Anyway TFA doesn't specifically say this operation is the one with the Indian accent callers, but I sure hope so. Although the "cardholder services" robo-calls got shut down a few years ago only to re-emerge strong as ever in the last year or so. I even resorted to pressing 5 to opt out, which actually seemed to work for while, but now I'm back to 1 or 2 calls a day from them.
Just plan on your gigabit being 100% open to all content. If that doesn't appeal to you then don't build gigabit and stop talking about it because you're wasting everyone's time.
Am I the only one that thinks having an exploding bag in your car is a dumb idea from the beginning? No doubt they have saved some lives, but how many of those people would have been ok with just seatbelts? Also how many people were injured by airbag deployment (in properly working airbags, not these defective metal-spewing airbags!) that would have otherwise been unharmed?
Yeah I would spend $100 to see if I like Windows on a tablet, especially if it is the full version of Windows.
Yeah but the Windows tablets have a full version of Windows 8.1 and can presumably run most every Windows desktop app. Windows 8.1 itself is $106 at Amazon so HP must be getting a hell of a discount from MS.
