I was helping pick out a laptop for my dad, and the salesman tried to sell me on some anti-virus software. I told him I was just going to set it up with Microsoft Security Essentials. He made some claim about how they were legally required to block no more than 70% of viruses. I don't know if there is any grain of truth in that, but it was a hilarious claim--mostly in that it doesn't make any sense. What is that supposed to even mean? He couldn't really give me an answer beyond that.
That is an interesting point. I'm just thinking that with the replicating machine, the self-replication is a product of the invention, whereas seed naturally self-replicates. That is not something they developed specially. Doesn't that seem significant?
Sometimes I use private browsing for this, even if I don't need the privacy part of it, just because it separates the session data. So, I can be logged out of my account in the new window/tab or logged into a different account without logging out of my primary one. Still couldn't tell you about the logging via IP.
Yeah. This is really frustrating! I just had one working, and then it mysteriously broke. And I can't imagine that sharing them via G+ would get much more than a bunch of "uhh.. it doesn't work, idiot" responses.
So how would you determine when the program is "bug free" or even "bug free enough"?
I'm not sure a contractor would accept a flat payment to be received at the tail end of an indefinite span of bug fixes. But then again, maybe they would. Somebody tell me.
