What's your namespace, baby?
That headline confused the fuck out of me for a while. A pun on the word shooting? Cameras shoot film. Terrorists shoot people. Or drones are shooting people instead of terrorists. Or the drones are the ones responsible for shooting people, and the terrorists did nothing of the sort. Finally I realized that it's saying "Drones are not terrorists. They're filming the olympics."
I wish Google, Facebook, and every other web company would learn this.
I've been okay with the dash and the side bar look of new ubuntu. It's mostly been the same for me. I switch between different desktops all the time, so I'm not particularly attached to any one or the other as long as it doesn't really impede my workflow. What I hate and still can't get used to is the global menu. I accidentally close out of so many applications because I don't realize I'm actually focused in another window. It annoys the piss out of me, and takes away the concept of the window. The window is it's own little self contained world. Menus for that window should be with that window. I still can't get used to clicking for focus on a window, and then dragging my mouse all the way back up to the top of the screen to get a menu for a window. It really only works well for a full maximized applications.
I honestly don't see what the uproar is about. It works the same for me as the old site and it's easier on the eyes and doesn't look like something I designed in 10th grade. What is so broken about the comment system? I keep seeing that in here, but nobody explains why. It "just sucks" is all anyone is saying.
I work at a very small business. My personal laptop is my development environment along with the desktop I have at home. My development environment is pretty much whatever I want it to be, so I don't feel limited like i have at other employers. I'm in charge of all the tech at the job, so I do whatever I want. The boss is an inventor, so he actively encourages me to try new technologies and learn whatever I think would be fun to learn. It's cut down on how much I do at home and has allowed me to actually delve into my other interest areas outside of programming. I still do spurts of it here and there a month at a time, but this job allows me to look into new technologies without feeling like I need to do job training at home too. Sometimes I get excited about work and do a lot of it in my free time, but sometimes I get excited about stuff I do at home and then do it at work too. For this job, I'm fine mixing "church and state," but I've had other ones were 5:00 hits and it's fuck you all; you're not getting a damn cent of value out of me past this point. I've always liked the google 20% policy. You get time to do stuff out of the monotony. It helps generate new ideas while also introducing you to new tech.
Considering most airports have desks and areas to use your laptop and charge it, I don't think you're in any trouble.
The only other places I see them are those coupon printing plugins and lots of older science and math web sites that do some sort of visualization/simulation stuff.
Well you've commented, so now you're worthless to us all.
I dunno about you, but my CS degree got me over 50k a year graduating. Hardly think your average liberal arts major is making even half that.
My computer is hooked up to my TV. Most of the stuff you get over the air isn't 1080 anyway. Netflix has plenty of HD stuff. I do hulu, netflix, and other streaming sites. Costs me $8 a month. For how much content I get, HD cable can go fuck itself in the ass for all I care. Savings far outweighs the benefit of a super sharp picture.
Oops. 120. Still don't think it's that much.
It's 20 pixels. I've had both 16:10 and 16:9 screens. I don't get the big hype over 20 fucking more pixels.
Why does everyone bring up swing? What about AWT and SWT? SWT looks the same as native components on any of the platforms. Eclipse uses it. IBM uses it in some of their stuff. We use SWT in our java projects here at work.
