I don't 'like' lima beans, that doesn't mean there is anything wrong with them. In this case your lima beans have been switched out with castor beans and you're dying. Pretty big difference.

It's a compiler bug, for Pete's sake, not the end of the world.

Revert to a known working version of the compiler, submit a bug report and move on. Why the temper tantrums? What is with all the drama?

...Do you really want to bug those user's repeatedly with self signed cert validation prompts or just say "okay, $30 / year is worth avoiding the helpdesks"? ...

They are bugged only once, and then they accept the cert locally. Or the college provides an easy way for the BYOD people to acquire the college's cert.

There is no need for an official CA to issue a cert for Server1 at IP address No need whatsoever. And, as proof of that, starting in November, the official CAs will stop issuing those types of certs.

Comcast actually does beat Verizon on residential services, at least when it comes to download speeds. The top FiOS residential plan is 75 down, the top Comcast plan is 100 down.

Last I checked, Verizon's 500mbps download (as part of the 500/500 symmetrical) is larger than the 100mbps download you cite from Comcast.

From the BBC:


A tweet (in Russian) from a key Twitter account used by pro-Russian separatists, in which they claim to have captured a Buk surface-to-air missile system, has now been deleted, BBC Monitoring observes. Ukrainians say the Malaysian plane could have been downed with a Buk, but pro-Russian rebels have now denied they have it.
