Still can't find the moderate button. The source has it, so maybe it's a hidden element.
Thanx for the comment.
Thanx, looks ugly and buggy. No RSS? Signed up.
Wow, that does look bad! It's like their moving from document presentation to a controlled media platform. That will either fail or spawn a real "Internet 2.0". Heh, let's go fork the Internet.
I fixed the issue on my side: I deleted all slashdot cookies that had the "beta" in the name. I couldn't even reply with the beta. Moderation will now be coming to a JE near you.
I was sneaking around slashdot before, and now the front-page and journals all sow up in the beta. Removing "beta." from the URL is of no help. It reminds me of Windows 8, which made me switch away from Windows and to the Mac. Perhaps, we are now entering the Third Age of slashdot.
I thought The Usual suspects, along with any other movie where you can change the last 15 minutes and arrive at a completely different story, is stupid.
Nice writing style though.
A friend asked me how to change top-post/bottom-post in Thunderbird. He intentionally uses a strict white-listing ISP, so searching is difficult (and that is pretty much how he wants it). That ISP offers excellent service and support to those who want exactly that type of service. Nonetheless, the time comes when you have to ask someone else to find something out for you. A
At least i looked.
Apple wants you to use the app store for app management. If you use it, it's a simple click to update everything. Outside of that, it's an individual thing.
Apps are really mini file systems that should include all it's files. Hence, to delete, just delete the file. In reality however, some apps leave a footprint. AppCleaner does a decent (though not perfect) job. Or, just do it manually.
Ultimately, the macbook can be used as a cookie sheet.
Reply or moderate, reply or moderate. I replied.
Once, at the office, i requested a database driver for a server, and proceeded to find an alternative method until the official solution came.
Some months later (end of year?), i get a call from support asking if the issue was resolved. I explained to him that we were using a workaround. He asked if he could close the ticket.
I come at this from a completely different viewpoint, having only recently dipped my toes into Linux - for me, a package manager is a relatively new concept. The nearest I've come to it previously has been with Apple's App Store, both for iOS and now OSX - plenty of choice, sometimes too much choice.
As far as manually installing apps goes, it usually boils down to double-clicking on the DMG file to mount it, then either running the installation package or dragging the app file to your Applications folder.
In theory, uninstalling apps is as simple as dragging the app file to the Trash. I say 'in theory' because apps do leave behind some detritus formed by using them - thankfully not to the same degree as Windows, but it is there. For suites of apps like Microsoft Office or Adobe Creative Cloud, there tends to be a lot more extra stuff deposited onto your system besides the apps themselves.
Sadly, updates do tend to be on a per-app basis, with the exception of those acquired through the App Store, which handles the update process.
