There are plenty of alternatives for whatever platform you're using. Pick one and learn to love it. After all, the most convenient password is the one you never have to type.
A lot of my work involves processing time series data as well as administering dual-boot workstations.
Daylight savings time can eat flaming death.
It's because the naysayers are the ones more actively working in the field and closest to the experimental and theoretical results and are trying to actually accomplish these kinds of tasks.
More actively than Ray Kurzweil, Director of Engineering at Google in charge of machine intelligence? Very few people in the world are more active in AI-related fields than he is.
They've even invented protocols for sharing information between themselves.
Following the law literally and blindly is not a good idea.
I couldn't disagree more. I don't give a whit about intention - I care about what's actually written. I think most programmers should be familiar with this concept.
The alternative is a completely, utterly unjust world where laws are fluid and impossible to comply with because there's a difference between their wording and their meanings. If the law says "it shall be illegal to do X" and I don't do X, then I should not have broken that law. I can't imagine living in a society that said "well, you didn't technically do X, but we don't like you anyway so it's off to jail".
This is not the same as the little check box under the property settings for compatibility with older OSes.
No, it's a full-blown virtual Windows XP installation with all the flaws that come with it. In which case, what was the point of upgrading in the first place?
Why should his criticism of a business not be valid just because he's not up with some obscure lingo used by some people in that particular business?
What are you talking about? I use two of my no-name tablets on a daily basis. Then again, many appliance stores over here now stock such items so one doesn't have to visit chinese websites to get them. These days about a third of the kids at local schools have one.
Loosely speaking, a Bitcoin is a secret number.
Which brings up an interesting point. Can anyone actually steal a number or merely copy it? The number already existed, in a sense, long before bitcoin so how can anyone really "own" it?
Remember that similar arguments about stealing vs copying have been made in defense of copyright infringement claims by the MPAA, RIAA, etc.
Welcome to the Cloud.
You must work in the medical industry.
No. I'm just capable of reading and understanding the news.
There were times where employees were basically instructed to use fear tactics to sell TAP, where they would play out scenarios for the customer like "You don't want to open this new monitor and find out there's a dead pixel do you? We can't return it if you don't purchase TAP!"
To which I once replied with a horrified "how much of a piece of crap is this thing if it's that likely to die on the drive home?", then walked out with a stammering salesman chasing me. It's not usually a good idea to convince your customers that your products are disposable junk.
