Found the zoom. Still didn't find PHP. Curious.
I didn't find PHP anywhere.
Also, is there a way (or browser) to make the diagram larger?
I don't think we won the war of 1812. We might be generous and call it a draw; both sides were happy to quit.
This is how my longest lived project has been. Originally written for SunOS and HP/UX and Cray's UNICOS in the late 80s, it is still a live client/server application managing 100+ million files running on a wide variety of UNIX-like environments. The maintainers (me for the first ten years, others since then) have migrated development and production environments several times during the 25 years the project has been running.
There are lots of OpenVMS systems still running in medical and financial institutions.
Fact is, when my parents were in school, ANY degree was good enough. You really could go get a philosophy degree because the jobs were mostly mid level office jobs and didn't require skill so much as the ability to read and learn a bit....perfect for people who had learned how to learn and could all read. Didn't matter what they studied then.
Now, well, that philosophy degree qualifies you to teach philosophy and fuck all else. The value of the products they offer varies greatly, and they still pretend a philosophy degree even matters. Frankly, I don't see why they should even offer philosophy beyond an associates; its just not worth it to the point it counts as a scam really.
The author says that rather than do that (get an ordinary job), he intentionally chose the (lack of) career path that he's on.
From the article: "to do with my particular usefulness to society"
It appears to me that you have none.
There are lots of good comments posted after the original article.
The article presents some info that just isn't quite right. The device will probably be useful but not nearly as good as they claim. Instead of 8 or more to one times the typical battery lifetime, it will be more like two times. Google "joule thief" and read the articles and comments carefully. This device works the same way; just in a compact package.
Exceptions are EXCEPTIONAL and should be treated as such... only expected to be thrown when something exceptional happens, not as a means of flow control.
Yes, absolutely agree with this!
Huh!? According to Stroustrup in "Design and Evolution of C++", C was certainly intended to be "C with a little extra". It was also designed to be C with a lot extra. He intentionally created the language so that C style code would still run just as fast as before. You could just take advantage of the nice things like function prototypes (remember when C++ first came into being was before ANSI C) and declaring for loop variables inside the loop, etc. You could begin to use the new features as you wanted.
Or, you could go full bore with objects, etc.
Thirty years of development later, we have today's C++.
Vote this up. It was my first thought too. Basically, plain ASCII text with formatting instructions that are human readable.
Not just in Oz. That is the law here in the US as well. The trailing car that failed to stop is liable.
Exxon had the Qyx office systems which competed with Wang word processors before there were PCs. They had the nicest keyboards that I ever used on a typewriter. The feel of the keys was just right for fast, accurate typing. This was around 1979-80.
