Exactly. Lets not go back to that. Last thing we want is a webkit monoculture.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
If the main complaint people have about the new version of Windows is that the icons don't look very nice it must mean this is a pretty good version.
After all, it's not like you can't just change the icons to whatever you want them to be. I'm sure by the time it ships there will be more than a dozen "Classic Icon" themes available for download. I may spend 45 seconds finding one I like and then never think of it again.
It will soon be running the same win 10 that my laptop and phone use. I had better be able to make my own games for it.
I've always wanted Apple to invent automobiles.
Interesting -- why are you "rebuilding" the team? The events leading to that may (or may not -- what do I know?) have something to do with the quality of your candidates.
As an aside, I worked on a C++ compiler (20 years ago at IBM), but it was the code generator & optimizer. There are plenty of moving parts in a C++ compiler that are pretty far away from C++ features like templates and stl (exceptions and lambdas on the other hand do poke their way pretty deep). You have to go and learn them -- working on a compiler back-end written largely in C (or the C like subset of C++) will not teach them to you. But I can still to this day read a hex dump and disassemble x86 instructions in my head. (not as quickly or fluently for less commonly used encodings as I used to, I'll admit)
But I'm close to the 50 year old mark -- I'm pretty grateful to have an interesting and rewarding job -- I'm quite happy that I'm not looking for work these days.
(Although Apple pings me a couple of times a year
I probably just don't know enough to appreciate how bad my sound quality is.
Why not? Uncertainty drives change, and uncertainty at this point was created _by Verizon._ Granted, something had to change, because what the big ISPs have been doing is abusive at best.
Besides, it was Verizon that started this mess by trying to change the rules for its own benefit. Complaining now is just sour grapes. Enjoy your new Title II status.
I suspect he meant "an implementation using existing encryption software that you selected yourself."
Not really. MS views Windows as an open platform and invites 3rd parties to create the apps that run on top of it. This has always been it's strength but as a result mspaint etc. have always been limited.
I used paint.net for years to play around with game art and it's great. But when I bought a wacom it came with PhotoShop elements which does a lot more. It's not that expensive on its own and you don't need to buy into a subscription. There are plenty of more expensive hobbies. If you're doing these things for a living though I think it's always best to get the best tools. If I made my living in digital art I would probably have an adobe subscription.
There you go again, pointing out truths that environmentalists don't want to hear
Don't worry, after they finally admit that CO2 doesn't drive global average temperatures or climactic swings, they'll find some *other* component of energy generation (say, magnetic fields, or plain old waste heat), and they'll demonize the hell out of that because it's causing a spotted tit-fox, or marsh trout to die off.
Warming, cooling, staying the same - none of it matters when it comes to "the consensus"
But...but...you can never run out of *other* people's money!
This smells like a desperate attempt by the MSM to try and spin away the shellacking the greenie Ds got last year.
