My daughter has not learned to read and re-read the chapters in her text. Even if they haven't been specifically assigned as a reading assignment they cover the material in class and she is assigned the problems at the end of the chapter. When she gets stuck and asks me for help the first thing I ask is if she tried to look it up in her chapter. Which is typically followed by a no. If I can find the answer to her question in the chapter, I'll have her read it first. Or at least the section that contains the answer. If she's still stuck then I'll try and explain the material a little better. Of course, how I learned things 25 years ago is completely different from what she is being taught so that really just confuses her even more.
I still can't believe they are teaching that Pluto is not a planet! WTF? And don't even get me started about brontosaurus...
I have an app on Google Play specifically targeted at children 0 to 4 years. One time purchase, no ads and no in-app purchases.
I don't blame Google, I blame the developers taking advantage of the situation. Personally I don't like in-app purchases as I feel it exploits the consumer. Draw you in with a "free" game that you can't really do anything with unless you spend money? WTF?
As the GP said, the password thing is a trade off between security and usability. That said, Google could make the password timeout a configurable option.
No one is targeting that anymore!
OT but I agree it's near impossible to make money from niche open source projects but I'd argue it would still make a good resume item. Anything you've done that you are proud of shows passion, dedication, commitment and says a lot about you as a candidate regardless of how relevant it is to the position.
Actually, the GPL focuses on neither the developer nor the user but only on the software itself. You are free to use the software so long as the software remains free.
My point was that free software has never had any kind of restriction on the "use" of the software. The licenses grant permission for modification/distribution and the terms that apply. The license provides what didn't exist before, forbid and prohibit takes things away.
Currently it's perfectly fine for me to use GCC to build weapon systems or use LAMP to put up a pro-software patents website if I so choose. It's also fine to incorporate GPL code into a new P2P software geared toward distribution of anti- propaganda so long as the sources are available. (Or any number of uses that may be controversial or objectionable in certain groups)
When you start adding arbitrary prohibitions left to the discretion of the individual developers you lose all freedom in a nightmare of restrictions.
e.g. I can use this library in my code as long as I don't eat meat. But now, my code can also only be used by vegetarians. But then to use this other library I have to also hate gays.
I've seen software with restrictions on military applications or use in government organizations. But I don't think they could be considered free.
Words like "forbid" and "prohibit" seem to go against the idea of "free software".
You'll need to fight Strong Bad for that one.
Well played! No mod points today, sorry...
Out of curiosity. Have you actually gotten a popup about an app trying to use the camera like that or was it a "for instance"? If so, what was it? This is a serious question. I'm working on a project looking at rogue behavior like that.
Facebook says it is only so it can facilitate two-factor authentication
No need to question it further. A completely benign reason with no ulterior motive. Just allow it and be happy. Facebook wouldn't do anything against your wishes...
No doubt. The class certainly didn't make me an expert by any means. It was definitely interesting learning about surveillance techniques and methods to detect them. The class had a hands-on portion where they had mock hotel rooms and we had to set up the equipment to try to detect and locate the various bugs through out the room. I only found about half of them of which the burst transmitter was not one. I learned two things, one you really have to know what you are doing, and two, you have to be lucky enough to be watching when it happens.
I had attended a training session several years ago at REI, a company that produces counter surveillance equipment. Aside from strongly pushing their products, the classes were extremely informative and demonstrated techniques to detect just these sorts of things.
I think I'd be ok w/ Nachos and even the soda. Now if someone hits me in the face with a cold chili dog all bets are off.
Because throwing popcorn is obviously an offense deserving of death.
Holy fuck there are a lot of heartless people on here today...
