Comment Re:Can windows PC runs without Adobe Flash? (Score 1) 66

Has anyone tried running a PC without Adobe Flash?

Can that PC be used to surf the Net?

Any suggestion would be very much appreciated !

Assuming you have a proper web browser: You can get plugins that stop flash from running automatically. That's almost the same thing as "no flash".

I'd like to ban the lone "=" operator so it's "==" for comparison, ":=" for assignment with all the other two char operators like != and += intact. So many languages try to be "smart" instead of just making the difference more explicit.

Here's a nickel, son. Go get yourself a proper compiler.

I see this as a marked strengthening of Apple's platform. If truly not even Apple can unlock or decrypt the phones, then that's a huge benefit to using the platform.

Either that or they're just trying to sell you a new phone.

Maybe if you had bottled water, you'd drink it instead of coke and other nasty things.
Despite popular belief, tap water, even with a Britta, is nothing like bottled water which is actually nice to drink.


Speaking of bullshit:

How does it feel to be sitting at that table, Chas?

And those companies pay about the same amount per megalitre of water as you do per bottle!

Yep. Is there a single reason why soda companies would WANT people to keep on drinking soda? Soda has water+ingredients. Ingredients cost money.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's really the soda companies paying for all the 'Sugar is poison!' stories.
