If they ignore the courts, who's gonna stop them? Especially when both sides share the same disdain for the Constitution. Renewing those Patriot Act provisions isn't about legalizing it. It's more about public relations.
After you wade past the trolls, Disqus is already the best fact checker for any story out there. Obviously, you have to follow up with a search to confirm what you read in the comments, but that's where I usually find the most important (unreported) portion of most stories.
Same is true of slashdot. Which is why most of us don't even RTFA.
If they keep up the linux support, I'll definitely check out their new games. Skylines could have used a bit more content, but it was worth it for the price.
I always VPNed to Canda for torrenting until I got a notice for torrenting a show about pirates (ironically enough). Wasn't sure if it was the VPN provider cracking down or a Canada thing. Haven't had any issues after switching to another country.
I do wish the movie/TV industry would sell me the content in an acceptable format though. I haven't pirated music in many years. Not since I could get a decent quality, non-DRM MP3 for a reasonable price. Money is not the issue for me, so much as the video format.
If the langugage is Java (or even Python to a lesser degree), then I haven't come across anything that even comes close to IntelliJ. It's code completion and introspection are so good, that I find I don't need to test as often. And I rarely find any issues when I do.
I also use Eclipse and Netbeans, and everything seems to take an extra step or two and that really adds up, over time. Netbeans is good for C++ though, so I muddle through with it.
Yeah, my company now has its picnic on a Sunday. Why on earth would I give up what little free time off I have to attend?
Overengineered designs come from people who don't have the experience of having to maintain an older product. The kids out of college are smart and fun to work with, but between the overengineering and their difficulty in perceiving fads from the frameworks that will endure, I find I'd rather not work with them until they have a few more years under their belt.
My senior managers recently discovered the agile process and have proceeded to school the development teams on it. They were so excited about how it will improve our company that I didn't have the heart to tell them that all the development groups have already been using it for years now.
Republicans like to talk up the Constitution, which I'm a big fan of, but they really only care about a single amendment. And the only point of having that is to defend against the loss of the others. But what's the point of it? If they won't even vote to defend the others, they sure won't fight for them.
I couldn't find any hate or bigotry in Straif's post, but plenty in yours. Why can't both sides be free to live their own lives?
Civil rights was, first and foremost, about repealing laws that mandated discrimination. Businesses couldn't "self-police" back then because it wasn't even legal. Most businesses only care about the color green.
Right. That's why the Bill of Rights put restrictions on the government, rather than the people. Only government can force you to do anything. If there's a market and it's legal, someone will service it.
Well I have a right to eat pork. If you were to run a deli, refusing to stock it for religious reasons, would I have the right to sue you for discrimination? It's the same issue with the cake thing.
Historically speaking, free countries prosper more. And freedom means accepting beliefs that are different than your own.
Since everybody is required to do business to survive, you're effectively saying that nobody has rights. Where in the Constitution does it say that we lose them when engaging in business? I can accept that for corporations, who are making a bargain in exchange for limited liability, but not for partnerships and proprietorships.
