Comment As a motorcyclist... (Score 4, Insightful) 363 363

As a motorcyclist, I avoid left turns like the plague.

Not for safety reasons, but because I don't want to sit there for 15 minutes waiting for a car that weighs enough to pull up behind me to trigger the lights to turn green.

We waste so much of our lives waiting at red lights its baffling!

Comment Re:Learn jQuery (Score -1, Troll) 126 126

I don't know how many developers who say they are "experts" in JavaScript and jQuery get this question wrong:

        What does .bind() do?

90% instantly think I mean $.bind(), 9% initially think I meant .bind, but then go back to $.bind(). The other 1% actually know what I'm talking about.

This is why jQuery can be dangerous. Makes developers oblivious to the underlying language.

Let me quote:

For us, it's a way to have more people learn about our tool. As for the project authors, they too benefit by gaining an opportunity to fix some of the bugs."

I added the bold.

YOUR INTRUSIVE WINDOWS UPDATE!

The latest batch of updates magically moved Microsoft Office Upload Center startup configuration from msconfig/regedit entries TO THE DAMN TASK SCHEDULER! WTF?!

</rant>

I praise them for the rare use case where they use this intrusive omni-present program for good. This is four times, that I remember, in the last year that they have done a sweeping removal of malware with Windows Update
