X is a mess of a protocol though. Too many extensions error.
Now slashdot is doing it again.
If you understand programming, you can pick up most of that within a few weeks. If a senior dev gets mad at you during those weeks, look for another job.
If you don't understand programming and know all that stuff, there's no way you will learn the libraries and software that specific company uses within a few weeks and a senior developer will get furious.
C++ is just another language. It's in no way harder than C, interlisp or Python.
Standard libraries are just some libraries. All languages have those.
I regularly work with devices having 32*K*B or RAM. That talks TCP/IP. (And much smaller than that, but they do very limited amount of networking, like CAN.)
And I remember running Linux on devices with a lot less than 32MB...
What's the challenge with 32MB? And how is that extreme in any way?
Very informative. Thanks.
I block ads because of three main reasons:
1. I don't like being tracked by a third party
2. I don't like visually annoying ads (blinking, moving, changing, etc) - I can't read a page if it feels like I'm in Shinjuku or Las Vegas.
3. Ads are often destructive, either they popup (in the page, or in a new window/tab) or they contain trojans or worms
Since I block lots of trackers, already there most ads vanish. Domains that serve any of the catagery 2 or 3 are also blocked - actually all third parties are blocked if they are not needed for the page. (RequestPolicy. It's a bit of work and why the can't people make pages without dozens of third parties anymore?)
Pages that don't have third party ads are not blocked in any way.
Pro tip if you want your ads to be viewed:
1. serve them on the same domain
2. don't animate them (maybe don't even use images)
3. don't make them have any sort of script
I for instance see google ad-words. I just can't click on them because it leads to a blocked tracker domain...
I was trying to figure out what cars they had that can be charged. Turns out it was the other way around, the car will charge your cellphone.
What was wrong with the QI standard?
Chuck Norris deployment program,
...you have so many funny units to pick from over there.
I'd say no, but we might be getting better at noticing?
I'd guess democracy works as long as education levels are high enough and the democracy isn't diluted.
Dictatorship seems to work as well as long as education levels are high enough and corruption is avoided.
It's a good philosophical discussion where the limit is of when dictatorships are more democratic than democracies.
I really, really like Singapore. They are doing pretty much everything right, including having the smartest and most educated leaders in the world, by far.
I am a bit confused by their status as non-democracy though.
I will switch to the next browser that's fast and supports tree-style tabs to the left of the window. (No, not in a separate window.) (And Firefox isn't fast.)
Jolly good.. Now the name + the birthday is the secret needed to unlock any identity fraud? Not even including social security (which wasn't secret either)?
Waiting 248 days on the tarmac before flight... Improbable. I hope.
Oh, so they can make it fine for 497.10 days by changing the type to unsigned!
