I was with you right up to the point where you demonstrated that you are okay with making rape jokes.
Why remove the vertical scrollbars when a mouse is not connected?
Because 99% of the time, that's also when the big external screen isn't connected. I quite like this feature.
It will be interesting to see reviews from all those people who spend most of their day running Pro Tools, Ableton, Final Cut Pro, etc. Anything which reduces screen real estate for those people will be an undeniable net loss.
You will note that the censored phrase is "metric sh*#load". That's because the US still uses imperial f*$ktons.
Because most software patents don't go above the threshold of 'obvious.'
I do concede that a key word is "most", though a slightly stronger phrase like "the vast majority of" would also be appropriate. There are a very small number of software patents which I would (grudgingly) agree are probably legitimate, like RSA. Software patents like that are remarkable precisely because they are extremely rare.
As a bonus, next time your AWS drops out, you could just blame it on boat people.
"he-man woman hater's club"
I dunno about weev specifically, but that's not a bad alternative name for the MRA movement.
This isn't a gender specific issue though.
It's only a gender-specific issue because people like weev act in gender-specific ways. If people like him went after both genders equally, or all ethnicities equally, or all sexual orientations equally, then the conversation would be different (even if the most appropriate solution is completely identical).
To be fair, she was also mocked for being a woman, just not by the liberal press.
There are many things I can think of which really should be done to Weev. None of them are fatal.
I don't think that anyone doubts that there are real instances. Claiming that it's all of the most extreme proponents on all issues is quite a big claim, and I think it does need some proof.
Hell, I can't think of many more extreme nutcases than the Westboro Baptist Church, and they're apparently genuine.
Who really cares the difference.
Have you ever considered working for US law enforcement? You'd fit right in, with the "let's get him on something, anything" attitude.
We all should care about the difference. Weev is a first-class arsehole who is guilty of many things, both criminal and civil. He also has certain civil rights simply by virtue of being a human being. You have these rights too. Taking them away from him means taking them away from you too.
If it helps, think of "innocent" as a property of the act, not the person. He was innocent of hacking. He was guilty of stalking, harassment, and libel.
It was the 70s. We didn't know as much about syntax as we do now.
These days I'm baffled there are people who still don't use an IDE for real projects.
IDEs work if your language and toolchain are well-integrated with the IDE. If they aren't, you spend a significant proportion of your time fighting the IDE. Also, if you're the sort of software engineer who spends some of their time doing sysadmin-related stuff, moving between two types of text editor incurs a significant context switch.
Of course, what I really want is vim and/or Emacs embedded in the IDE. There are some projects for doing this with varying levels of success.
