Laser pointers have already caused eye-damage. So, yes, they're "actually" harmful.
There are lots of stupid drivers on the road that do not look to see if there is anything behind them while they reverse their vehicle. At least this way pedestrians have a chance to avoid the idiots.
Again, nobody wants a hobo-looking person on their team. While I think John Maddog Hall cleans up nicely for a meeting, the others, no. I find your suggestion that RMS is a team player particularly vexing.
Let's look for a random other, well-kown programmer: https://www.google.be/search?q=mark+russinovich&safe=off&espv=210&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=MYTYUojzCozB7AaNjIDYDw&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1846&bih=995
I feel your pain, but you have to admit that trying to creating a Poster in Word is bad idea in any case.
When we're saying things like 'passable document' and 'basic computer skills' we're really talking about letters, CV's, low volume bills, documentation, etc. Basically; mostly anything with 90% text and 10% images/graphs/other.
(But let's not talk about all the people that mis-use Word; like people that will insist on sending me a screenshot embedded in a Word file... Can't you just, send me a png, a bmp, I'll even accept jpeg?)
You should install a heat detector instead of a smoke detector in a kitchen: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_detector
To hell with that. If we're remote-controlling horses/donkeys, lets not recreate a human-horse interface. Lets create a machine-horse interface. Maybe something like a headset that gives sound-commands indicating range and direction binaurally. That way the horse can follow along a set of waypoints. Give it a 2-way radio, and we can send updated orders, and can get status updates on progress.
The whole setup will be quieter and longer-range with a longer possible mission time.
The hyper-principle thing to do is comply with the request (for the SSL keys and the blackbox and
Let's say I have a few programs open, and I'm in some kind of workflow (for instance; programming with an IDE, an image editor, a browser and a word document). In this case, switching to the Start Screen takes a lot of mental effort: it is a complete context switch on screen (all my programs disappear from view), and somehow triggers a complete context switch in my mind. Even accessing the start screen once feels very tiring and laborious.
This. Scratch is already localized in Dutch and Danish. Even the Scratch website is localized in Dutch.
10. A public apology by the CEO, and assurance that Metro will never again appear in Windows.
I know nothing of the USA's mobile carrier market, aside from what I read on Slashdot. But $50/month seems like highway robbery.
