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).
I also didn't have a password to reset due to using Facebook Connect, so I believe we don't have (much) to worry about.
However, I decided it wasn't worth the off chance the could use it, so I decided to revoke LivingSocial permissions from my Facebook App Settings.
I've taken my 4S swimming, surfing, and given it to my 9 mo old to chew on without worry. I've also dropped it on occasion, but so far it's been completely fine.
If you have a case like that and you *still* manage to break it, just pay the replacement cost.
That being said... they also store all emails sent to customers. Including the Welcome Email that includes the original password used for master accounts.
So, could be worse on our end, but still major suckage overall.
I think there is something to be said for a single monitor.
I switched to a MacBook Pro a few months back as the first Apple laptop or desktop I have ever used for work. I started out using an external display plus the MBP display as I thought I would be more productive (as that's how I always did it with my Windows systems), however, I started using "Spaces" as an experiment, and now I am completely set on using one monitor.
The issue is that with multiple monitors you have a lot to deal with... lots of distractions. While there *are* times when I would like to have windows side-by-side, I feel like I now have my own "personal attention queue" w/ Spaces. All terminals in one space, all chat/music in one space, IDE in one space, RDPs in one space, VMs, etc. It allows me to concentrate on the most important thing at that given moment by minimizing distractions.
I'm up to 9 spaces at the moment, but I am still only about 3 months in to my MBP, so I can't be sure if this is still the honeymoon phase.
How about we also commission Google to shutdown services wherever we feel science and technology growth threatens our national security?
No more Iranian Google results for "How to build a nuclear bomb"
If I were you, I'd consider looking into the new hosting platforms built on cloud environments.
You should be able to find some online web hosts who charge per-use in a clustered environment so you don't have to bother about setting up your own EC2 servers (or whatever) yourself. Leave it to the experts as it were.
My company uses a cloud hosting provider and it's been great not even thinking about architecture as our website hosting needs have grown.
