I pay $8/month for hosting with Arvixe.com (the Linux hosting is cheaper/month) and comes with a free domain name. If you're going to pay for hosting beyond a free "parked" page, it might be better to shop for hosting instead of shopping for a registrar.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
So, a long time ago (1996 or 1997), I had made a statement to a friend that "If it's on the Internet, I can find it." This was back when Lycos and Webcrawler and AltaVista were the best search engines. He challenged me to find out how much a bullet fired from an M-16 dropped at 500 yards (back then, it took me 45 minutes to find). He was ex-Marine, so this was information that he already knew.
So, I used that same concept to test your theory. My exact query was:
-- how far will a bullet drop at 500 yards
The Google results were very heavily weighted to a 308. The Bing results included multiple caliber rounds. I think the Bing results are more comprehensive for this query and it is sufficiently non-simple.
I'm sure there are plenty of queries where Google is better, but there are also queries where Bing is better. Which is why I use every tool available to me.
Yahoo is usually better for pop-culture type of searches.
A company tries to get their product to be more popular. Sounds like a good strategy. If it works, bully for them. If it doesn't, they'll try something else. Either people will use it or they won't. Bing isn't a terrible search engine......in fact, there are some features that Google buried related to Image search that Bing still keeps up front. Anyone who just uses Google is actually missing out. I use more than one tool to accomplish my task (Google, Bing, and Yahoo plus a few obscure search engines for specialized searches). Each one offers up results that the other doesn't.
Because there's no month 13 (in the Julian calendar) and no day 37 (again, Julian) and I would suspect a lot of hackers don't use the mm/dd/yy notation but the yy/mm/dd notation.
That was my thought. Celestial Positioning System with a clock broadcasting.
At Mobile World Congress this year, Kyocera was showing off a demo unit running Windows Phone....their first Microsoft device in years. What's the over/under on that unit failing to make it to market........or conversely what's the over/under on Kyocera pushing MORE Windows Phone units in order to save money on the patent settlement?
At the time of my post, "talking/same room" is winning by a large margin. It should give a message to employers about this whole "global workforce" thing. People are more productive when they can work with people face to face instead of via time-delayed e-mails.
I turn on extensions and set my default view to Details sorted by extension.
Also, ban spaces in directory and file names (as well as dots so the Anna.gif.exe is invalid). Spaces in names is a pain when you're typing at the command line......who wants to have to type quotes around their file names?
News, Manuals, etc. I read online.....no need for books when I'm looking for shorter informative articles. Books, however, I'll read fiction.
When I was learning recursion (eons ago, it seems), I was informed that both head and tail recursion could be "unrolled" to a loop of some sort (for, while, do....while, do...until, etc.) And recursion imparts a lot of overhead (push to stack, context switch, process, pop from stack), so you should unroll recursive functions as often as possible.
So, in this example, I don't think most people would think to use recursion at all --- head, tail, or mid recursion.
I would be more inclined to believe that if it were "developers", the screen would be too wide, not too narrow. Developers usually have multiple super hi-res, large monitors and would be more likely to not view it at "normal" resolutions during their unit testing.
It's less of an issue of recreating all of the "basic" controls and more a factor of every single designer wants to style buttons differently. You either buy into the native aesthetics or you don't complain when you don't have a native experience.
It may be the second or third most spoken IRL, but in terms of off-shoring, most of the jobs go to places that speak English (India), Chinese (China), Russian (Russia), and Portuguese (Brazil). So, knowing Spanish or French isn't as useful *in his profession*.
Nope.....that's how you know it's true.
