It's great when you can get away with that, but all too many companies (like where I work) have to deal with our customers as they are, not how we would wish them to be.

It's all the people like you who are the problem. If "use something standards-compliant or have a bad experience" were the universal norm, we wouldn't have these problems.

You say that like you think it's my decision to do this. I assure you, it is not.

Submission + - Brackets 1.4 editor released (

Tumbleweed writes: The Brackets text editor has now reached version 1.4, which concentrates on performance, among many other features. The general speed seems to be a major upgrade in my limited experience with it. A worthy competitor to MS's surprisingly good Code editor.

Submission + - 22 Years Later an Update Arrives! (

An anonymous reader writes: After 22 year, the Apple IIGS finally gets an update to its operating system GS/OS. Apparently, leaked source code allowed the community to give a beloved retro machine a badly needed upgrade. Who needs Windows 10? We got GS/OS 6.0.2. Long live the Apple IIGS!

Comment This is just in time to be bypassed entirely (Score 0) 179 the also-announced plans for wireless charging and docking. (okay sorta)

If you start a mile north of the South Pole, walk a mile south, then you cannot walk west, so it still fails.

Also, the North Pole isn't ice-free all year long. (I've not been keeping up with how much (if it has happened yet) it is ice-free during a year, but it's certainly not the whole year. Yet.)

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
