I just got the brilliant notion of using Hololens to do all the dungeon and minifig stuff that has previously been just on the board...
That would be pretty freaking cool... unnecessary, but WHO CARES IT'S COOL!
You want some harsh criticism? And some direct, blunt communication?
People don't scare quote "hetero", because it's the antonym of "homo-". So why the hell are you scare quoting "cis-" when it's the antonym of "trans-"? This is basic Latin, and if you didn't take Latin, then it's basic Chem, and if you didn't take basic Chem, then GET OFF MY INTERNET.
Unless you're going to argue that transgendered/transsexual people don't exist, then stop scare quoting "cis-" like it's some sort of boogie word. It's the natural choice for referring to individuals who are not "trans-". And if "trans" is a word, then "cis" is a word. Just like "hetero" and "homo".
Don't like it? TOUGH! That's how language works.
Comment rejected: insufficiently polite.
Avoid INTERCAL job postings at all costs.
So, you mean the fact that I wrote a c-intercal parser that used obscure opcodes to actually perform the interweave and or and xor isn't a good thing to put on my resume?
Also, my favorite obscure language is LIRL, and that has NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH ME BEING THE AUTHOR... rather, it's an interesting concept of, "what if Perl raped LISP and LISP was forced by the republican state government to carry that baby to term?"
The answer is: implied parentheses. To be clear, the language is absolutely context sensitive...
I ended up booting into DOS directly for most of these reasons.
Oddly, I barely even use 95... went straight from 3.x to 98. Where I still booted into DOS to do my gaming.
Ah... back in the day... I had to tetris my drivers to make sure I had enough conventional and XMS memory for the game I wanted to play... BOTH WAYS!
My day job is a web comic. All of my story notes live largely in Evernote. I mostly try to avoid doing lengthy sagas that need to really worry about continuity.
I believe Marvel and DC employ archivists; part of their job is to be a resource on continuity. Part of the job of a comic's editor is also to catch continuity glitches.
Are you aware, that companies that produce lead-free solder in Europe, must have their product labeled with "may contain lead" in California?
Because California's lead restrictions are something like 9X (1 part per billion) where as Europe's standard is at 6X (1 part per million)... even though both of them can be described best and most easily with homeopathic dilution values...
So what? I had a gigabit home network back in 2001...
Paper doesn't scale to the level required. Trust me, I've attended presentations from ex-Googlers on the topic.
Especially, when the paper weighs so much that it started deforming a building...
Usually the problem is something like, "it isn't giving me the newest driver" or simply the poor quality of the drivers in the first place. (For awhile there, if I clicked on the start button, it would cause my screen to reset!) And a lot of "your driver stopped responding so we turned it off, then back on again."
In some ways, I like that the drivers are being pushed to me automatically, but at the same time, if I'm doing multiple reinstalls in a single day, I've already downloaded the drivers... I don't need them to be downloaded YET AGAIN, every install...
