Years ago now, my bank wouldn't refuse a withdrawal that was set to come out in 2 days time, that would cause my balance to go below 0, and cause a $50 NSF from the bank and an insufficient funds charge of $25 from the company that was going to try and take money. Even though in one or two days time after the automatic-withdrawal date my check would be deposited to cover the initial charge. I couldn't afford a $75 charge for nothing. So I cancelled the account and withdrew all the current funds.

Once someone has your account info you are screwed.

If only Microsoft had of gotten its way 15 years ago, we would of had:

{
width:21px;
padding:5px;
margin:5px;
border: 1px solid black;
}
Where the total width is what you say it is: 21px. Instead we have the stupidity that the actual width is 32px. and paddings, margins et al ADD to the defined width instead of being a part of the element. Which makes calculating dimensions in HTML a fucking pain in the ass.

Long thought to be mere trash, researchers had recently noticed that they often contain short, regulatory RNA molecules, suggesting that exosomes may be one way that cells communicate with one another. Now, it appears that RNA in the exosomes shed by tumor cells can get into healthy cells and 'transform' them, putting them on the path to becoming cancerous themselves."

It may very well be the types of software that I've looked at, but almost every time I see that a particular piece of software has a German developer, the English support is non-existent or poor at best. Which is quite surprising to me as ~65% of the population speaks English.. Contrast that to Russian (~6%) or Czech (~27%), which (in my experience) has been much more friendly|open to English support|forums|help files.

Can't be any worse than trying to change Security Permissions|File Ownership through the GUI.

Environment Variables are better off being set via CMD.exe

SETENV.exe
SETENV -m PATH "%PATH%;C:\Somewhere\Else"

Then you don't even need to reboot/logout to have the change take effect.
Or the old-school way, but you'll need to logout/or reboot.

SET PATH=%PATH%;C:\Somewhere\Else

As long as we're going to reinvent the wheel again, we might as well try making it round this time. - Mike Dennison
