A guy whose evidence is "I've seen stats", without linking to them shouldn't be lecturing about hard evidence.
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).
On PC platforms perhaps. Not on server platforms.
Dominance where exactly? A helluva lot of Windows development is still done in C/C++. Java still has massive penetration in the enterprise. I'll admit that
As long as that's all you're using it for!
I bought lots of stuff off of RadioShack back in ye olden days. Two computers (an MC-10 and a CoCo3), several game ROMs, two printers, a one-sided floppy drive, OS/9 level 2, and dozens of doo-dads for various projects.
So yeah, if RadioShack wants to sell the fact that I bought a TP-10 thermal printer back in 1983, then go to town!
In the long run, the best method is to admit that large portions of California are simply not arable, not without basically robbing every drop of water to be found for about half a million square miles.
Kindly shove that race card up your ass.
Where do you think he pulled it out of?
Or why not use PostgreSQL?
Why shouldn't it be a show stopper. If XML is important, why shouldn't someone use a product that already delivers the goods, as opposed to one where the defense is "Well, just write something, or go look on Sourceforge and see if you get lucky!"
There's this little matter of having to run Windows. Not very bloody useful, particularly on production servers, unless you want to a. buy a Windows Server license ($$$) and SQL Server licenses ($$$).
Whereas I can install a Linux or BSD server, throw PostgreSQL or MySQL on it and the cost is the hardware and my time. If I need to add more infrastructure, again it's my cost and my time.
Translation: It has limits that renders it useless on production servers.
Hertz: "We have no plans to use the cameras!"
Consumers: "Thank goodness! We were worried!"
Hertz: "Well, shit, it looks like we've got a plan!"
Frankly I think the procedure should simply be banned outright, with very long prison sentences for anyone performing a circumcision without a good solid medical reason. It's barbaric, no different than female circumcision which seems to be the cause célèbre of modern women's rights activists. And yes, I know circumcision can confer some health benefits (my understanding is it slightly reduces HIV transmission, as well as protecting against some kinds of infections), so does a woman having double mastectomies to prevent breast cancer, and yet I don't see a general move to lop off all women's breasts.
Keep in mind that there is virtually no evidence for panspermia.
Why would any rational person try bullshit non-therapies?
