I thought it was AmigaOS/AmigaDOS or NextStep.
Which is why I'm so surprised that people hated on Win8 as much as they did. It's not Vista bad....it's just different than what people are used to. And a few tweaks to make the Desktop the default and thinking of the Start Screen as a full-screen Start Menu and it really is better than Windows 7.
Just go to Krispy Kreme and get your free hot one off the conveyor belt.
Actually, changing the tires isn't voluntary --- at least not in my state. You'll fail the state safety inspection if you don't change them when they get to the wear bars.
I've never actually had it successfully UPDATE. I've always had to uninstall whatever version I have and download the full installer myself. I'm at the point where I pretty much don't install it except when I need it....and uninstall it a week or so later when I'm done running it.
Also, Bing has gotten so much better. I use it about as much as I use Google. It's not like it once was. That being said, I've never had Windows Update change my search settings.....probably something else did it.
Why don't you mix languages? Write the pieces that are easier in the "higher" level languages in those (Java or C# since those are what you know) and write the pieces that need C/C++ in one of those languages? C# can call out to unmanaged code fairly easily but makes all of the simple tasks easy......I only do minimal amounts of Java, but I'm sure it can too. Back in the day, I used to write some C and every once in a while break out some ASM for those routines that needed to be closer to the hardware.....why should this be any different?
We have all of these tools available to us and yet we always try to use a single tool as the end-all-be-all. [car-analogy]Sure, you can race the LeMans in a Volkswagon Beetle, but shouldn't you use a car better suited for it?[/car-analogy]
Yeah, if I'm interested in videos from a company, I usually go to the company web site and look for "videos" or "media" or something similar......and if they host those videos on YouTube and embed them or redirect me directly to YouTube, I don't really care.
Do no evil.....but if you do, pay someone off so they aren't as mad about it.....
Easy enough to spam the keychain with any of the "interesting" options.....if it's already there and fails, skip it, otherwise, the malware is prepped for a value getting added in the "YourBank" entry to whatever else.
This is exactly the message I came to say....but for me, it was Computer Literacy. I'm not opposed to teaching some form of programming (hopefully using something akin to LEGO Mindstorm where it's less about typing the code).....but honestly, most of the computer teachers around here aren't exactly great at it ---- if they were, they'd be in some sort of programming job because teacher pay really sucks.
UO or EverQuest should have made it before WoW.......simply put, WoW was just the better implementation of an existing game. The others that made the list were all ground-breaking (I probably would have gone Wolfenstein over Doom, but Doom really did define the genre). I agree WoW should be in the HoF, but there were plenty of more worthy candidates that should have gone in BEFORE WoW.
You have to own your career.....no one else will do it for you. Negotiate a good salary. If you ever get passed over for a raise or a promotion, start looking for a different job. If the choice assignments aren't being given to you, look for a different job. Take ownership of your education....learn new skills before you need them and make yourself invaluable to the company. Take on the hard challenges.
And Windows Phone on the same hardware specs outperforms them all (which is why a $49 Nokia running WP is actually not a terrible experience)...........I'm pretty sure
Or a very large powered barge that is keeping your absolute position the same while you travel a relative position across its surface.......
but he's probably looking for the north pole answer.......which again, requires a rather large floating platform for at least some portion of the journey.
I'd argue the opposite. As a consultant, when we're brought in for a 1.0 type project, we're more successful with an Agile approach because requirements are less solidified in detail but the high-level stories are fairly well known. Each sprint, we can take a story, detail it out and implement it. The customers see progress and enjoy the feedback loop.
Projects that are more focused on enhancements (smaller scale, not a "major upgrade") tend to have issues in an Agile fashion because everything needs to be done "right now" because it's "affecting such and such group" and the prioritized backlog turns into a big mess of conflicting priorities.
That being said, my main complaint about Agile is that the typical implementation of it is too short-sighted. Sure, Agile allows for refactoring phases, but if you are only focused on what's in the current sprint, you might make a sub-optimal decision in Sprint 2 for a feature that isn't even considered until Sprint 6......but the decision you made in Sprint 2 locked you in to a bad approach and refactoring will take almost a full Sprint.....had you known about the Sprint 6 feature, you could have implemented the Sprint 2 feature in a way that the Sprint 6 feature could be implemented in a matter of days.
