Note that I'm a Mac user (yeah LOL Apple, I know right?) but with the right freeware, you're able to map, for example, the Caps Lock key to Escape. I used to work on an awesome Sun keyboard that had the escape key right there, for vi and all that good stuff.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The amount of misinformation in this topic is staggering.
There's enough cool stuff in the App Store that take a lot of the hurt away. I'm using iCab Mobile, an alternative to Safari that has many options, ad blocking one amongst them.
As for the comments that all browsers are just reskinned versions of an older Safari version, as far as I know the new WKWebView component makes it possible for alternative browsers to have equal speed compared to Safari.
Sometimes it -- what? Did someone attempt to hot-swap your CPU again? (-:
Perhaps at that exact moment, the deal expired or sold out? If you were at home, it would be interesting to SSH/VPN back to work and check (from a different IP address) if it really was a trick.
I own a 10-person tech company in Canada and I have never made my employees work overtime. Ever.
That is commendable. But hasn't it ever occurred that you promise a client to deliver a certain date, and you made a mistake in planning? I could imagine that rather than disappointing the client, you try and work overtime to make good on your promises. Obviously you didn't do that, so how do you solve those problems?
Hahaha wish I could mod this one up!
unexpected technical issues
Is this true? I often get the feeling from the gaming industry that Q&A gets ignored and execs simply launch the game for whatever reasons.
Either way you cut it, it's just another tax that gets paid by the end consumer
Exactly. Basically the headline could say "mobile internet tax much higher than estimated: $34 billion dollars".
i wonder how this compares to 4K monitors. It seems this 1920 resolution has a relatively low DPI. I can get a 5K iMac, the whole 1920x1920 thing comes across to me as rather outdated?
Single-player didn't get dropped.
One feature got dropped from this massively successful project. We've seen much bigger problems with Kickstarter projects.
That's completely over the top and you know it.
I do understand the complaints made. Sometimes it feels limiting that a constant connection is required.
However, I'm just happy they are finishing the project. I have many happy memories of playing Elite in my youth. In this day and age, creating a video game is a massive and complicated project, and they seem to have succeeded. I pitched in a hundred pounds, and they're also going to release it on the Mac, which is currently my most-used platform.
Never, ever, testify against yourself. Even in the case of a college, it's foolish.
Why am I here professor? Is it because of the assignment? It's all a big misunderstanding. She invited me over to work on the assignment and perhaps I thought too much of it. But she never clearly said "no", so you naturally understand..
What? No, I didn't copy the answer.
I've seen this at my college as well. CS students graduated without actually having programmed.
Colleges actually encourage this with their way of teaching:
- Massive classes without any real contact with teachers
- Weird focus on working in project groups
Doing everything as a project with small assignments often has one student both leading and finishing the assignment. Other students then get demotivated.
Obviously, this isn't always applicable. But when students hand in their assignment on, say, networking, then the teacher could ask each student for a very minor change in the assignment. And see how he's doing.
