You mean the money they just created out of thin air isn't really real?
Stop the presses.
Analog computing is more of a '60s thing...
I think you mean it's more of a 16th century thing.
That sounds like something out of Fallout New Vegas. Like Mr House would have a "memcomputer" keeping his accounts.
The nerds at UCSD are gonna have to work on the name to sound a little less 1950s. Or maybe that's what they're going for?
I don't know who, but I do know when. IE 8 introduced...
Oh great. IE8. That's some special lineage on which to base the identity of their new browser.
They wanted a name starting with "E", to keep a stylized blue "e" as an icon. Given that Windows 10 windows are essentially frameless, the browser viewing area is edge-to-edge, hence "Edge".
Then I think "Microsoft E" would have been a better name, invoking the drug that you'd have to be high on to want to use that browser.
So fuck him, and fuck his browser. And fuck his company.
Oh, I'm with you. I learned long ago with Microsoft that you use what parts work, jettison the rest. It's actually taught me a good lesson about technology: Never fall in love with a company. Also, when it comes to technology, "ABS": Always Be Suspicious.
Who comes up with these idiotic names? Why not "Microsoft Nail" or "Microsoft Lance" or "Microsoft Thing That Penetrates"?
"Microsoft Edge" is a very '90s name to my ears, but maybe it's just the fact that I've been sitting on the porch drinking, eating barbecue and watching fireworks for the past several hours. But Microsoft was never really good at names, although I did once have a three-legged dog named "Clippy" (that's actually true).
How do you mean no extensions ?
He didn't say "no extensions". He said,
adblocker extensions, password managers, extensions that prevent video from autoplaying and etc. will not be available
I can imagine Microsoft not allowing certain extensions if they will affect their "strategic partners".
Having to buy a new computer and restore from backups is not in the same league.
Doesn't have to be in order to fit the definition. And milder forms of censorship and suppression are often preludes to greater forms especially in places where there's already a history of such tyranny.
Just fifteen minutes ago I realized that my script to refactor the primary file server (newly converted to ZFS) into more sensible datasets had an irritating detail wrong (a path element was being duplicated in some paths).
I said to myself "oh, I'll just roll that whole thing back to the snapshot I made 30 minutes ago".
Then I go "zfs list -t snapshot" and discover that my snapshot was holding onto 0 GB because I forgot the -r switch to make the snapshot recursive.
Oh, well. By some impossible-to-separate mixture of good management and good fortune, it turns out I had a set of (different) snapshots from the last two days covering all datasets in questions. I lost very little work (only scripts were executed against these datasets and I still have all the scripts).
My real screw up?
Back in my second co-op workterm job, I managed not to notice that a system I was backing up changed the order of the listed drives between two very similar screen requests that I made almost immediately one after the other. Unfortunately, on the second pass I selected the active system drive as the recipient of the system backup, picking from the position in the menu where the desired destination drive had appeared moments before.
I had become accustomed to my home system being deterministic in the order it listed things. My bad.
This is back at the very beginnings of the 4.77 MHz era, so my PC was actually not yet what we now know as a "PC" (its father had an S-100, and its mother had a itty-bitty CRT).
Thirty years later I still can't type dd of=/dev/ada3 without making three trips to the metaphorical bathroom.
Whenever I type a disk-level dd command, I leave the sudo off, until after the third proof-read and several console consultations in which at least two different programs give me the same view of the drive name.
In dollar costs I couldn't say. In psychic cost, it's indelibly etched onto my permanent record.
I had a co-worker once (EEng) who claimed that as a junior intern during the late 1990s back when laser gear for fiber optics was all the rage, he routinely fried extremely delicate $2000 DUTs while the old hands just shrugged their shoulders. Dotcom dollars. Who really gave a fuck? It was considered barely worse than ruining a nice chair.
Plus, the seizure lawsuit didn't really hurt the popularity (or profitability) of Pokemon. I wonder if the lawsuit didn't in fact make the game more popular among a certain sector of gamers.
I bet I'm not the only one who thinks, upon seeing the seizure warning at the beginning of video games, "Oh, this gonna be good".
Sadly, in more and more parts of it, it's becoming illegal to collect it. And mind you, I'm not talking about diverting seasonal drainage, I'm talking about collecting rainfall from your roof, let alone from a structure purpose-built for collecting water like you commonly see in areas with high rainfall and low government interference.
That's a far cry from a hydraulic empire since first, there would be no central control over water and it's trivial in the cases you mention to circumvent any such authority.
