Had to kick over a few tables on the way out.
7 had widgets but they got mysteriously discontinued.
Possibly as they break down, they effectively have a larger surface area and the UV raining down gets to be that much more effective.
Slashdot, take your click bait and shove it up your arse.
I'm done here.
"We're gonna need a bigger re-education camp"
I know this is a Unix discussion but it's worth pointing out for those that don't know that DOS (or cmdshell) doesn't do wildcard expansion and if you want that, you have to take special steps (when I played with it, it involved linking with a different library). DOS commandline processing is very weird and (was) hard to find documentation for. I think I've spent many hours on trial-and-error trying to get things to work.
There are a few programs which allow per-file options so it doesn't necessarily make sense to do so (the imagemagick tools for example).
In fact, I think there's quite a lot. I often find myself adding options at the end and it seems to work more often than not. (wget also springs to mind).
Overblown as in "We can always eat Soylent Green in our concrete wasteland" I think.
Which one? There's two memes there cunningly juxtaposed.
But if those hacks should be elsewhere in an abstraction layer, that's a case for refactoring, not a rewrite. Though I typically find the first step in refactoring is to modularize everything (if it's not already). Then each piece can be refactored (or even completely rewritten if needs be) as needed.
Not that there aren't times for rewrites but backtracking to the beginning is a fairly drastic action.
That's actually what I have. Though it does have leather on the sleeves.
Regulation is one thing, low & order another. Regulation didn't prevent Bernie Madoff but he is currently warming a cell.
As to the systems to address grievances. I'm only passing familiar with a few and not going to enumerate the few I do know but the information is out there. Rest assured that absence of state based regulation and laws does not mean "We sit around and let people do what they want to us".
I run with libertarians. There are only a small proportion that don't believe that there is a small role for the state, mostly in enforcing contracts but also other law & order functions.
It could be argued that these people reaped what they sowed but on the other hand, they would also say that they have been denied the system they would have used to address their grievances by government interference.
So if "straw man" was incorrect, I'm happy to accept "misinformed" or "willfully ignorant"
You miss the point.
