Two hours for a one-way commute? That doesn't sound like a very good life balance. I think if that was our teams that we'd end up doing a mixed online/f2f meeting as if some of the team were remote.
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).
Yep, you can improve acoustics a little with soft furnishings and plants for instance. Bonus is a better environment.
Polycom isn't necessary. I work with two remote scrum teams who both try standing around a shared desktop in their rooms for their stand-ups via Lync. One of them has great audio, the other doesn't. Both are in large echoey rooms. The only difference in systems is their mic and room decoration.
The team in the room we can't hear clearly have resolved the issue by doing all meetings from their desks using headsets. They also now have long drawn out stand-ups. Hmmm, proves the point about standing up.
Never tried SmallTalk?
Most BD players do have storage. BD-Live depends upon it for instance.
Any BD-J apps will need to be signed with a private key that matches the public key in the cert pressed to the disc, won't they?
This is neurotic navel gazing. Take responsibility for your own actions, which includes getting drunk in the first place because you know before the first drink that this will lead to suspension of judgement. If you choose to use a tool like a robot to get you a drink, that's your decision, even if it kills you. What next - a controlling nanny state that raises the drinking age to 21 or it makes it illegal to jaywalk?
I switched to Chrome a few years ago because I was fed-up with Firefox's monolithic single process architecture. With a single process I have no way to tell which tab is draining my battery, which is a bigger issue than the constant memory leaking. The devs at Mozilla and Netscape before it have never really understood the benefits of multi-processing.
My laptop failed a few days ago so I'm on an old machine I haven't used for three years, but seeing as Firefox is the default I thought I'd update it and give it a shot. Mistake. One tab having trouble loading a web page blocks the whole UI leaving me wondering whether the app has hung up and needs to be killed via Task Manager. What a load of utter shit. Internet Explorer is better these days.
When did they promise that Electrolysis would be done this Feb? How many years have they been promising it full-stop? Now it seems it'll be later this year. No commitment, and apparently incapable of either running a decent engineering operation that can deliver anything sensible in a predictable and reasonable time frame.
Back to Chrome.
I'm surprised you expect to hear about it here. Most people here seem to care about the codecs and whether they're free. DASH doesn't really care about codecs and really just defines how you create and use adaptive streams and is based on existing codecs/formats. It only standardised relatively recently and it's going to be big (but hopefully transparent), for example: http://www.dash-player.com/blo.... Expect to see it as a vendor neutral alternative to things like MS SmoothStreaming and even Apple's HLS, although the later requires you to have a player with your own decoders if you're sending more than a certain size to iOS devices.
That said, most implementors are doing AVC or HEVC with AAC in a fragmented MP4 container. VOD content is probably one file per stream and live is multiple files fragments) per stream.
How well does that work on OS X? Oh, no TortoiseSVN?!
Seriously, only a programmer could possibly think SVN is the the right tool in a general office environment.
Why go back to an old version of Office for that experience? Just install one of the main OSS competitors... it's like Word for Windows 2.0, but worse.
You qualify for all those jobs? You're willing to move anywhere in the country? Etc.
Hmmmm, having the power to cause a run on the USD sounds like a very powerful position to be in.
Maybe they'll start selling off their haul of USD$ that they acquired bailing out the profligate US government.
How's that Electrolysis project coming along? Will they ever be done?
I switched to a modern browser years ago simply because multi-process is better. With Firefox there is no way to know which tab is draining your battery or consuming all you memory. Actually memory stopped being an issue for me when I switched to Chrome, so perhaps Firefox was just leaking it everywhere, but being able to identify pages using a lot of CPU and selectively killing them is the must-have feature that all the other major browsers have had for years. The improved performance, stability and security is a bonus.
Mozilla devs and the Netscape ones before them never could get their heads past the whole monolithic process concept.
The moderators seem to want to silence you. Tut tut for encouraging dissent.
