Hi Theo, it's hard to imagine a unix being written in anything other than C. But do you have feelings about how we should be writing code for application layers? Would you like to see less written in C, and more written in Ada, Scheme, Java or other languages that make leaks less likely. Have you played with Ada, do you think its type model is a general improvement over what's available in C?
I had the opportunity to burn bridges that needed burning in an exit interview once.
I took complains, issues, and documentation. They took it seriously, and shook the hell out of the department when I left. My manager was "promoted" to a position where he had no staff. Soon after, he 'left.'
Exit interviews are situational, like everything else in life. Treat accordingly.
>(you can safely assume it will be maximised since nowadays almost no website works if it isn't, sadly).
What kind of strange sites do you browse ? I haven't maximised my browser ever since I upgraded my 800×600 screen. And that was quite some time ago.
I agree. I don't buy Sony ANYTHING, not even music put out on one of their labels.
That said, they have always made good inexpensive headphones, and a solid go-to. The key is to find alternatives.
1) Sennheiser HD 202
2) Koss PortaPro
3) Audio Technica M20 or M30
4) Superlux HD 681 looks very good too
* Castle Wolfenstein: 1981 (on the Apple ][. Atari and Commodore shortly thereafter)
* Beyond Castle Wolfenstein: 1984
* Hovertank 3D: 1991 First FPS
* Wolfenstein 3D: 1992
* Return to Castle Wolfenstein: 2001. A very, VERY different game!
Just what I was thinking. The original game ran faster on my '486. Hell, Doom II ran faster than this on my '486.
There were three major factors that lead to Heathkit's success, which are no longer true.
1) The cost of manufacturing an item was significantly higher than the cost of the parts.
2) Items were sufficiently simple (or at least discrete) that they could be made at home.
3) Electronics were expensive!
Consider that at one point you could order a kit for about 60% of the price of the finished item. This could save you the modern-day equivalent of hundreds of dollars, and you could assemble it in a week or so.
Nowadays, a chunk of electronics is worth about a hundred bucks or so. Turning it into a kit would be _more_ expensive, and would take three minutes to snap together, if it could be done at home at all.
...botched processor launches...
What, you really need more than that?
If the GPL is stifling development (commercial or not), then it's stifling development, simple as that. If the license is an impediment, then it has failed to encourage development.
The post you're attacking was from the OP, DCTech, who provided the links in his original, informative, post. He then complained (with some justification) about an AC who attacked him for supporting a MS product.
Follow the trail.
...is raping its customers.
Is that what Yahoo is going to focus on now?
If the FS supports delimiters in filenames you will necessarily have to quote them. This is dumb.
An accurate statement is "even if the FS supports delimiters in filenames, it doesn't mean you should use them."
They're going to save humanity. Why? If there's no one else out there, then we're going to go on, living our grumpy little lives. If there's someone else out there advanced enough to talk to, then they'll discover it too.
Sometimes I think we should take all of our great art, pack it up into a ruddy great rocket, and nuke ourselves back to the stone age and try again.
Oops. Thanks for the correction. I forget that that coolthreads CPUs were classified as UltraSPARC until the T3 line was released.
Last ship date on the IV+ was April 2009, and now it's hit the software end-of-the-line.
"...take business away from Oracle's Sun servers."
Trust me Oracle, the only company that's having the slightest negative impact on your server sales is...Oracle.
Solaris 11 shipped last week. They added code to prevent it from running on the UltraSparc processors. Thanks assholes.
