To be honest I am a sys admin, my coding experience is very limited. But comparing 4 to 500 million is a bit ridiculous and that's what I was trying to point out.
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).
4 million lines of code isn't too far from 500 million? Math is not your strong suit is it.
The user who posted the numbers rounds out by saying 5 - 15 million lines of code. (It is a guess as his numbers only included part of the project.)
A couple of things.
1) White space is your friend.
2) Don't abbreviate the word people. It makes you look like an 16 year old. Oh, and capitalize the word "I".
3) Take your meds, you are obviously having some kind of breakdown. Calm down.
Id wager you weren't trying to replace it with something much worse then COBOL. Analogy fail.
You break it into pages? Naw not me I want all the comments in one giant list.
Granted, it takes cash to run sites like these, but they were fine before. The question is, do some of you here want to band together, get whatever is available of slashcode and rebuild this community somewhere else? We can try to make it as it once was, a haven of geeky knowledge and frosty piss, delivered free of charge in a clean community moderated format."
Is your google broken? Do the links in the summary not work?
You seriously do not understand. I will break it down for you.
Lets say you have an old phone you are using. You pay 100 dollars monthly for service.
You go get the new free upgrade. You pay exactly the same, 100 dollars a month.
There is no added loan to pay off. The "payment" for the phone is hidden in your monthly payments. You will pay the same monthly payment whether or not you go get the new phone. There is no change for sticking with your old one. In fact you are the sucker if you dont go get the upgrade, you are already paying for it because it is already hidden in the monthly charges.
The free dictionary:
Noun 2. back door - an undocumented way to get access to a computer system or the data it containsback door - an undocumented way to get access to a computer system or the data it contains
access code, access - a code (a series of characters or digits) that must be entered in some way (typed or dialed or spoken) to get the use of something (a telephone line or a computer or a local area network etc.)
the door or entrance at the back of a building.
a feature or defect of a computer system that allows surreptitious unauthorized access to data.
So obviously it does not matter if it was a "published interface" or even if it was on purpose. It still qualifies as a backdoor. Frankly it does not sound like an accident either so I wouldn't even classify it as a bug. I certainly dont think it is unintended, a mistake, or an error. That means it does not fit your definition.
Note: Bold was added by me, and I did search other online dictionaries, most did not have definition that was technical in nature. Most referred to Back-door deals. Ones I checked were Miriam-Websters, Cambridge, and Oxford. If anyone does find a better definition I welcome being corrected.
My Alienware has better specs then the new MBP. On top of that I bought it a year ago, and it cost less.
Yes, and then the space aliens. After Ninjas, its space aliens all the way down.
You're so correct, they shouldn't have hired Oracle to create the website.
It is telling that he has not posted on his own submission. Hey Cold Fjord, go ahead and post, I would love to see what it does to the comments that have been moderated.
The number is so dismal because the Oregon website was worse then the National website. Not because people dont want it as the linked article implies.
Nearly 25,000 individuals and families have so far submitted hard-copy applications, Cox said, with nearly two-thirds of those applicants eligible for Medicaid, a federal-state healthcare plan for the needy.
But none of those applicants has actually been enrolled, with manual processing of the paperwork slowing the process dramatically.
Separately, about 70,000 residents have signed up for Medicaid by responding to letters sent by the state to more than 200,000 people deemed eligible for the program by virtue of their receiving food stamps, Cox said.
Oh wait look who submitted it, cold fjord our resident republi-troll. Hey Cold Fjord... Fuck Off.
