A much milder Christian version was some Puritans who banned Christmas
Minor clarification, but Puritans didn't ban Christmas, they banned the non-religious parties and traditions rooted in Saturnalia that had become associated with Christmas. Puritan Christmas involved spending most of the day in Church. They certainly tried to ban fun at Christmas (and at most other times), but not the Christian festival.
If a movie violates canon, it should use a different name. If the movie isn't good enough to be made without using a name it doesn't deserve, then it isn't good enough to watch.
Tell that to The Godfather and Wizard of Oz, two movies that are both in just about every top 10 of all time list.
"Canon" only comes into play in sci-fi, video games and comic books, which is one reason those wonderful art forms have such trouble getting taken seriously as art.
Oh, and of course, "canon" also comes into play in religion, which also says a whole lot.
You mean the money they just created out of thin air isn't really real?
Stop the presses.
Analog computing is more of a '60s thing...
I think you mean it's more of a 16th century thing.
That sounds like something out of Fallout New Vegas. Like Mr House would have a "memcomputer" keeping his accounts.
The nerds at UCSD are gonna have to work on the name to sound a little less 1950s. Or maybe that's what they're going for?
I don't know who, but I do know when. IE 8 introduced...
Oh great. IE8. That's some special lineage on which to base the identity of their new browser.
They wanted a name starting with "E", to keep a stylized blue "e" as an icon. Given that Windows 10 windows are essentially frameless, the browser viewing area is edge-to-edge, hence "Edge".
Then I think "Microsoft E" would have been a better name, invoking the drug that you'd have to be high on to want to use that browser.
So fuck him, and fuck his browser. And fuck his company.
Oh, I'm with you. I learned long ago with Microsoft that you use what parts work, jettison the rest. It's actually taught me a good lesson about technology: Never fall in love with a company. Also, when it comes to technology, "ABS": Always Be Suspicious.
Why on earth wouldn't you just consider it your own money that you gave the government in the past? You have to be pretty obtuse to turn down your own money in order to make a point about the evils of market incentives.
Who comes up with these idiotic names? Why not "Microsoft Nail" or "Microsoft Lance" or "Microsoft Thing That Penetrates"?
"Microsoft Edge" is a very '90s name to my ears, but maybe it's just the fact that I've been sitting on the porch drinking, eating barbecue and watching fireworks for the past several hours. But Microsoft was never really good at names, although I did once have a three-legged dog named "Clippy" (that's actually true).
How do you mean no extensions ?
He didn't say "no extensions". He said,
adblocker extensions, password managers, extensions that prevent video from autoplaying and etc. will not be available
I can imagine Microsoft not allowing certain extensions if they will affect their "strategic partners".
Yeah, that'll work.
Frank is a deeper fellow than all but a few really grasp.
His books were largely philosophical treatises and it's so often disappointing to talk with people who can't see past the superficial stories that he uses to explore an element of philosophy. I'm surprised that anyone can get through the entirety of Dune without that dawning on them, but it becomes much more clear when you start reading his other works (especially those not set in sci fi settings).
Plus, the seizure lawsuit didn't really hurt the popularity (or profitability) of Pokemon. I wonder if the lawsuit didn't in fact make the game more popular among a certain sector of gamers.
