Throw in a single space, spelling mistake, or capital letter and try it.
With your own domain and software like KeePassX, it's surprisingly easy. You never even have to type passwords or usernames. Once you get it set up it's actually even easier than using the same password everywhere, and vastly more safe.
I would think the unwarranted SWAT raid on that journalist's house recently would be quite chilling. A classic example of unreasonable search and seizure for a variety of reasons.
Canada *is* another country
Why do people submit to a warrantless (and unwarranted) search? Surely some people must stand up for their rights? I would think even the potential lawsuits would make the trouble worthwhile.
Interesting that this post is being repeatedly modded down. I see Microsoft is still paying people.
Have you tried Linux lately? It's far more usable than Windows inmany people's opinion, and there are options that can make it look similar to Windows or OSX if you wish.
I seem to remember reading about them changing their hiring practices recently.
Making money now doesn't mean making money in the future. Look at RIM for how fast things can change.
After coming of a 2+ year project quite burnt, I think even more than the silly hours, it's the environment and management that causes burn-out. I was quite happy to work at 'over 100%' fro long stretches, but was affected when poor management, politics, and bad corporate culture came into play. The other developers seemed to be affected similarly. There is still a limit to haw hard and long you can work of course, but the conditions make a huge difference.
... and doubling the price while telling you how you can and can't use it. It would probably also have a proprietary charging mechanism.
I think throwing people into the mix changes things. People act differenmtly when there are people around, even to the point that apparently a paper silhouette of a person will reduce thefts.
Yeah, I had them leave two new Nexus phones sticking out of the box by the front door. They actually do it all the time, and even left a $1500 laptop sitting there. They, UPS, and others do it all the time. The good part is that I don't know anyone who's ever had something go missing. Yay Canada. I was reading something from someone from eastern Europe who came here about the things he found the most different about this country. Where he was from this was apparently unheard of , as anything left at your door would go missing. I'm guess that in some areas here it would be the same though.
I think having something dropped off by drone would call a lot of attentiopn to it sa well, as for a devemt amount of time it would be quite the novelty.
The problem is that people keep writing things in these languages and they end up being extremely difficult to maintain because of deficiencies in the language. Yes, you can write bad code in any language, but a few of them encourage it. I grew up on BASIC, and it's one of those languages. You can write some of the best spaghetti in BASIC. Visual Basic was another.
