If you switch from using carbs, to using Fats (such as the ketogenic diet), suddenly your blood sugar isn't changing very much
I would just add: I consider it to be the 'silver lining' of getting type 1 (aged 35) that I think a bit more about what I eat and whether I need to eat it. My diet was already quite good, but it's improved since.
Perhaps that's money well spent from their point of view. It doesn't seem like it, but I'm in no position to judge.
when it gets to the stage where you have a dedicated checkbox in KDE which allows you to toggle between a tick or a cross for the Checkbox style, I think it becomes a bit too much.
Maybe, but that's a problem I'm happy to have.
Can't wait until Ubuntu starts altering grep and find to start using libcurl to report search terms to amazon. Maybe even return ads to a new IO stream: stdadvert.
Then keep your eye on Bug #1055766
Not only is the poor design true, it was very intentional. This is why we need the LLVM project. KDevelop and such shouldn't have to write their own compiler front ends to get feature parity with Visual Studio; but right now they do.
I suspect that he's making retrospective excuses for poor design; I doubt it's as intentional as he claims. A GPL'd shared library would give the idealogical results he appears to want. (Which I support, incidentally)
it would be better if they were to collaborate with projects such as Open Street Map and really share data.
... like Microsoft have been, for example. Open Street Map contributors have been given permission to trace features from Bing's areal photographs since 2010. No such goodwill from Google.
WDS did not disclose how many support calls in general technicians fielded for each platform
So without saying that android phones are more or less reliable in general, what they are really saying is:
Android phones less prone to software problems.
misdemeanors typically fall under a 7-year statute of limitation, and so if you downloaded stuff from Napster's heyday, more than 10 years ago, could those mp3s even be used to legally prosecute you?
Probably not now, but if you upload those files (to which you are still not entitled) to a cloud service, then you have just committed a brand new civil offence.
Just because you can't be prosecuted, it doesn't mean you now have a license to redistribute that music.
Haven't used ATI's open source driver on their newer hardware, but I can tell you at the rate they are making progress nVidia is going to be in a world of hurt on the Linux front pretty soon.
There have been promises of decent ATI drivers "just around the corner" for many, many years now.
ATI's new documentation effort is fantastic and my last-but-one card was a 4780 based on a desire to reward OSS-friendliness and the promise of decent drivers. I struggled with driver hell for 2 years, unable to do decent compositing, watch tear-free video or even play UT2004 (yes a 7-year-old game) at a smooth frame rate. It was a truly shoddy experience and I understand that the ATI Linux drivers had improved massively to even get to that point.
At that time I think nVidia were having some 2D performance issues of their own but I'm not aware of ANY point in time where their drivers have been less than 'excellent' in comparison to the ATI ones.
So if I learned anything from that experience, it was to make your purchasing decisions based on NOW, not on "pretty soon" or "maybe". I gave that ATI card to a Windows-using friend and will continue with nVidia until they either get bought out by Microsoft or finally get some competition on Linux. It'd be great but I'm not holding my breath.

Is there a list of SSDs that do this? I want to be sure I never accidentally buy one, or even get misled by marketing material based on such a terrifying 'optimisation'.
I already got burned with a Corsair Flash Voyager USB stick whose controller would slow down to the point of timing out out if you modified the pre-formatted partition table (this bug). Annoying, but at least it's not trashing parts of the disk because it thinks it's seen an NTFS partition.
Have you ever been "helpfully upgraded" by your ISP for using BitTorrent?
I doubt it.
