It that was true, how do you account for other countries with far less then half the number of criminals per citizen as usa?
Why would you expect toString() to work on a InputStream?
There is no general safe way to create a String from an InputStream, because mapping from a byte stream(Which is what a InputStream is) to a string is not 1:1.
That is: The same string can be encoded as different bytes, depending on the encoding such as UTF-8, UTF-16 iso-8859-1).
The funny thing is that Sun did not think about this when they first created Java, so there are a bunch of deprecated methods which create strings from bytes, trying to guess the encoding or reading in from the systems default locale.
Why should the add blocking plugin require side-loading without user interaction?
It don't as far as I know.
No no, that is a misunderstanding. This year is the year of a linux desktop. Not The linux desktop.
Interesting? Where is the bug report so this issue with btrfs can be fixed?
How do the daemons refuse to play well with others? Do you have any examples on this?
As far as I see, nothing prevent me from replacing any specific daemon with my own implementation. With the possible exception of systemd/journald/udev
Can you mention any single project which only does one thing?
Let me look at some examples:
Both an interactive user interface, and a scripting environment. And while the different programs running in bash often do communicate together, they do this using undocumented apis in the form of text output which is the worst way of module communication.
It also confuses matters because the user-readable output from running a command in an interactive bash shell is part of that apps api. Just think about all the problems this causes for api updates, and translation of output to other languages.
Is composed of a server, and lot's of modules, but none of the modules can be used outside of Apache. This looks to me like what systemd does, but nobody ever complained about this.
Don't even get me started. Its a compiler collection of parts which depend on each other.
The linux kernel:
Refuses to maintain a stable api, so unless your module is part of the kernel itself, it will break at every linux release. Not modular at all.
None of the tools/effects which gimp uses are independent modules.
There were never a modern desktop/server linux distribution using what is refered as the "unix way"
"If, for example you want to run the systemd project's time server, you must run systemd and so journald and dbus"
Really? Could I not just write my own daemon instead of systemd and thus avoid this dependency? The systemd api seems to be stable so it should be possible.
As I see it, the systemd project's time server need functions which are currently only implemented by systemd, but is there any reason an other project could not implement the methods needed by the systemd projects' time server?
Primary implicit shared edit by multiple people, and access from any computer without having to install any software.
True, but make -j8 is also faster then make -j4 on a i5 because make is not 100% cpu bound.
But It would be very interesting to compare make -j8 on a i5 and i7 with the same frequency, to see how much ht helps.
What the oop languages did, was to add explicit language support for all the features and idioms which software developers did anyway.
This make development and maintenance much more easy.
Sorry, but I take deleting most media on my test iPhone, over having to install both Windows and iTunes(ARG!) on my computer.
Is it a standard us thing, that a merchant get access to any card data when the customer pays with a credit card in a physical shop?
Here in Denmark, a normal merchant newer has access to your card data even if you pay with a credit card.
The data is sent directly from the credit card terminal(The hardware which read the card and card code) to dibs/nets(The payment gateway for credit cards) which then reserve the money and sends a message back to the terminal about the status of the transaction. This transaction status is then send to the merchants cash register to together with the last 4 digits of the credit card number.
Does the cache control commands require root access on Windows or Linux?
"Read the article, summary makes it sound as if Docker doesn't verify the checksums and it does. What his complaint is, that it verifies the checksum AFTER decompress, de-tar'ing from a HTTPS source, and only does a cursory check on the TAR file."
Are you sure about that? From the description from the docker guy, it sounds like they don't verify it at all.
