I don't get the US centric bias towards military policy. Basically anyone that becomes capable of attacking the US is automatically an aggressor that needs sanction.
North Korea produces a lot of propaganda showing them destroying the US, so it's understandable.
It's not really accurate to call kapu a religion
It was more than just giving up Kapu. They destroyed the temples, the wooden statues, and abandoned the gods. What exactly would you call that?
Another victory of religion and superstition
Hawaiians spontaneously gave up their religion in 1819, before the arrival of western missionaries. It seems a lot of them really didn't like the kapu system.
There are still superstitions in Hawaii but mainly revolving around ghosts.
In Mozilla's (and Google's) case that would definitely be the advertisers, they are the ones paying the bills. These 'upgrades' seem to be for their exclusive benefit.
TBH I don't even know what differences there are between Mozilla/Chrome/Safari compared to a year ago. The UI has moved around a bit, but mostly they seem the same (some people have complained about feature removal, but it hasn't affected me).
Also interesting, but also a lab project.
Well yes, if it weren't, then I'd be typing to you right now from my computer that is two orders of magnitude faster than my current computer. Which would be beautiful.
If a group embraces the terminology of the most popular 'process', it's probably bad. In other words, most teams are bad and use whatever is most popularized as a stand in, and tend to act however they want, but pay lipservice to the popular process to make themselves look like they are following industry best practices.
Yes, and instead of giving them a new process (which will fix nothing), it would be more effective to train them to be better programmers. Focus on the individuals, not the process.
A surge protective device doesn't do anything when power is running at 300V for a few seconds.
Seriously? Is that actually a problem is some parts of the world?
Another megabytes the dust.
