Of course! Naturally, one *merely* needs a sufficiently clever compiler...
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).
For all eternity.
That happened a couple of times in my IT class in 6th form. In the first year, two students handed in identical work and expected our teacher not to notice. Then in the next unit (databases), a student merely downloaded an example database off the web and tried to submit that as their work. Because, of course, nobody can see a hidden folder with the original copy in!
Then, the next year, two students (one of which was involved in the first plagerism incident) handed in identical copies of a program... which was the first result on google. You'd think that people in voluntary education would actually do the work, rather than copy and paste from the internet...
Except, to get those tens, or hundreds, of millions of people to pool their money, you'd have to peel them away from watching their latest reality TV show. And then you'd have to get them to care, and if someone even breathes the words "child pornography" or "terrorism" anywhere near this single cause, it's trashed in the court of public opinion and you'll never see any money at all.
Yes, I know, silly me for feeding the troll...
finally pick one -- namely
.deb -- package format and stick to it; so developers aren't put-off by the idea of spending days creating packages for different platforms.
Why not just stick to using tarballs, and let the distro developers package it into whatever package format they want. Also, why should DEB be the template for every distro's packaging format? Let me guess... Ubuntu user? That would also explain it being slow and things blowing up on upgrades...
get GNOME on to QT
What did you mean by this? Re-develop Gnome using QT?
stop! Go and do some work on getting drivers working instead,
Only if you stop commenting on
It looks like they've completely scrubbed all references out of the site now. ZFS never existed, as far as Apple's site is concerned. And Oceania was always at war with Eurasia. In other news, the chocolate ration was increased today...
I could go on like this forever... =p
But something will. Something without the laughable amount of baggage.
Personally, I'm hoping for MIPS to kill x86, but I won't hold my breath. (Although it would be nice... =] )
On a related note, is there anywhere other than Lemote who sell MIPS processors that could be used in a desktop?
You seem to be a little confused here.
Notepad beats vim
emacs, gedit and kate beat notepad. (I actually quite like vim too, but only for quick edits.)
visual basic beats perl
You used VB and still say that? o.O
No, it's not. =)
Flame away! =D
Gosh... I'd better stop printing and scanning from my OfficeJet and the family Canon until I can make them print only ASCII. Can't have you being wrong, can we?
I know I'm feeding the troll, but still... Both multifunction printers in our house work just fine with a fresh linux install (Ubuntu 8.10/9.04 to be exact), whereas with Windows (at least with the Canon printer...), I had to download the 100+MB driver+yet another photosuite bundled with it+the silly misc. apps that are thrown in.
Okay, If I'm perfectly honest, at first the Canon printer was completely unsupported by CUPS. 6 or so months later (when I installed Linux on the family PC because XP ate itself up from the inside and refused to reinstall) it was supported just fine. Works for me. =)
Can a person really own the trademark for the name of a game, using a four letter word broadly applied across several industries without the owner actually having published a title in the industry?
Apparently so... =P
He shouldn't be able to, as I thought there were ways of stopping people from doing this. Of course, I may be completely wrong, as IANAL and think I have an allergy to legalese...
I think I ruptured something laughing at that. Wonderful impersonation of a clueless Microsoftie. =)
