The Express Edition of MS SQL Server is pretty damn good for 99% of the deployments you would consider MySQL for, and its free.
It is not free, its price is included in the Windows Server licence.
- Kids can use it (for instance when you don't want to have to pick up your kids at their soccer training)
- Older persons can use it when they are not able to drive anymore
- When you get home at 3 AM half drunk
The fact that English has become the word's language has nothing to do with its ease of learning.
Care to explain why ?
You would certainly agree that a language that is hard to learn has fewer chances to be used all around the world ? Hence, being easier to learn surely helps (even if there may be other reasons).
It's just a pity that the world's de-facto common language (English) is so hard to learn well...
I disagree; English is relatively easy to learn, therefore it has become the world's de-facto common language.
Besides, any language (except maybe Esperanto ?) is hard to learn well...
Too bad you didn't step up to the plate and become the maintainer, when Google offered to give the source code away to anyone who wanted to run their own "Google Reader" service.
It is not a problem of code, it is a problem of providing the service
I guess you maybe couldn't figure out a revenue model for the damn thing, either?
Feedly seems to have found it...
By the way, 90% of these projects don't ring any bell.
use Sharepoint's (base version is free beer)
The base version Sharepoint is not free, it is included in the Windows Server license you need to buy. And don't forget the SQL Server Licence.
The fact that he is atheist has nothing to do with the story. Why mention it?
This says a lot more about the nationality of the author of the summary than about the new Greek PM...
Alexis Tsipras : radical left, engineer, European, has 2 kids but is unmarried. It would be a big surprise if he would be religious...
Twitter will shrink dramatically or disappear entirely as the video capabilities of higher bandwidth and newer/denser technologies make written dialogue even more irrelevant than it is today.
Written dialogue will never be completely replaced by video, because it can be consumed much more quickly.
I agree with you for the rest, though.
Running Bittorent over Tor is a bad idea. As the linked article says, look at I2P instead.
But it would be fine to run your browser over Tor in order to get the torrent magnet link, and then use the "normal" network with your favorite torrent application to get the actual file ?
This is an absolutely fantastic idea.
Good enough for me.
a couple corrections to your inaccuracies (intentional?): * iphones back up automatically to icloud.
By default only. Mine doesn't.
The value is not in the code but rather in the developers. I challenge you to take a few of your friends take the current version of cyanogen mod and get it working on the next Samsung phone when it gets released.
You are totally right. I could not do it, but the current CyanogenMod could easily fork it after having cashed Google's Money.
This exactly what happened with MySQL in 2008 : Monty Widenius sold it to Sun Microsystems for $1 billion. He then left to start MariaDB, a MySQL fork.
I don't think that Google is stupid or desperate enough to spend $1 billion on a company having only brilliant developers but no IP.
