Apparently Steam has made it very easy for develop cross-platform, so with great ease developers can target multiple systems. This is great for Steam and the end users who may have multiple gaming platforms.
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).
Windows barfs on Civ V, but Linux runs it well!
This article reads like the hack job that it is.
So as part of my investigative reporting class at New York University, my students and I
Something tells me that these people do not know a lot about science or drug evaluation, but do know a lot about trying to make a big splash with an article that "exposes" wrongdoing.
Here's a small dose of reality: All studies and clinical trials have things wrong with them. Everytime I read a study in JAMA and the NEJM, I can point out half a dozen things that should have been done differently. When evaluating whether a drug or procedure or implant is effective you always have to read these studies with a critical eye, and consider all the evidence (laboratory, clinical, statistical, etc.) when making a decision.
The fact that some "investigative reporting" students found problems with clinical studies is hardly surprising given how many details the federal government regularly documents and records.
Apparently you are under the misguided perception that the FDA does drug development. That is incorrect. The FDA does product evaluation, which is something that private industry only does because they are forced to. And I can tell you that there is no collection of scientists in the world who know more about product evaluation than there are at the FDA.
Relying on the open/wiki opinion of every Tom, Dick, and Harry is much better than using objective scientific blinded clinical trials. Yeah, that will work.
we really haven't progress much aside from getting driver support and Android (though the biggest mobile player, has an OS that runs less efficient than iOS, BB, WP7).
WTF? Well, Android is Linux, and well, it is the biggest mobile player, but... Linux will never amount to anything.
Who modded up this shit?
Yes, we should give that obviously highly valuable wireless spectrum to cell phone companies for free! Because they will pass those savings directly to us, and not horde the profits for themselves!
Is Tizen running X-windows?
That is one thing I like about my N900: I can pretty easily compile old x-windows programs, and I can ssh to a remote machine and pop up a remote program. Or I can just copy my python-gtk scripts to my phone and they just work.
A heat gun requires you to know where to heat. An oven does not.
Yes, there are emacs/vi fights, but in truth these are in fun. There is not a single vi user who would say that they should build a distribution where emacs did not work. There is not a single emacs user who would say it is OK to build a distribution where vi did not work. Everyone in this community would really say, even though you may be stupid for making your choice, our distribution should work under whichever you choose.
This General Resolution was about making certain that the distribution still worked even if someone chose to use a different init system. I am not sure why that is contentious.
Is this not an illegal man-in-the-middle intercept and hack of my data?
I created (via my web browser) the http header and request. My device sent that http header and request to another computer with whom I want to communicate. Someone (ATT, Verizon) intercept my data, read it, hack it, and send it along. How is this not completely illegal.
If you are ever out in Maryland, these launches are worth visiting. Here is a hint: Do not go to Chincoteague Island. It is crowded and it is not all that close. You can get twice as close and less crowded by driving around on some back country roads. Google maps/earth is your friend. From our vantage point we could see the rocket before launch. At launch it was blinding. It lit up the entire landscape and we could feel the thunder thumping our chests. 100% worth it.
The systemd version is significantly shorter than bash script. Yay. However,
(1) I would have to read many pages of documentation to figure out what the systemd version actually does, whereas I can just read the bash script and see what it does. What if I don't know sh? Then, I am not a real sys admin. The shell is used in many places in administering a UNIX system, not just the init system.
(2) Most importantly, I can hack that bash script to do whatever I damn well please. Have I hacked init scripts before? You bet your booty I have.
See the subject line.
I always new that show was real.
