Being able to run cygwin in Linux should be a release test for Wine. It would sure make scripting some of the unit tests easy. Great idea.
Since the article in question is about a link to articles that have been removed or censored does that mean that article will have to be removed along with Slashdot's reference too?
Being that it takes two barrels of gasoline to make one barrel of ethanol, growing the corn and turning it into ethanol, than please let it DIE. I beg you all, please separate bio-diesel and ethanol into two separate discussions.
I think this movie will have the record number of people who bought tickets, but did not actually go to see the movie.
Many people (numbers vary) stop paying because the car does not run and it is too expensive or not worth repairing. The problem is that many poor are taken advantage by paying $6,000 for a car that is not worth $2,000. The poor that need a car to get to their job do not often have the cash or knowledge to take the car to an independent mechanic to have it checked out before purchase. I have seen "low cost" dealerships try to sell cars with cracked blocks and bad transmissions. This device is a waste of money. What dealers need is device to find the car when it needs to be repossessed which has its own safety issues.
The trick with whistle blowing is to make sure you have left the job BEFORE you blow the whistle. Snowden made sure he was out of the country. Others found employment elsewhere before blowing the whistle. With digital finger prints left in logs a whistle blower cannot assume that attempts to be anonymous will be successful.
"Let's light a shuck out of here."
Lighting a corn shuck (husk) meant you had less than ten minutes of light before it burned out so you has to ride like hell or you were left in the dark.
Hold by beer. Y'all watch this.
Ruby is a great Perl replacement. It generates really nice looking content and is very readable. Do more with it than Perl with spending hours trying to understand some else's "snoopy swearing" code in Perl. Please be sure to look into Rails and Rake as well.
Check out the UI on Bodhi Linux to see how an Enlightenment desktop should be used.
Being order by an Iranian judge to appear is akin to being nominated for a humanitarian award. I cannot image now proud I would be if asked to appear. Has anyone worked out some kind of award system for being asked to appear in foreign country or tried in absence for human rights work?
Red Hat essentially provides all of their software offering for free. They make the money off the service contracts. Supporting a couple of additional third party applications is just one more thing they can charge for. I like free money.
Testing work is seen as a horrid job in my opinion. I see more tester jobs posted than any thing else in my field due to turnover and a reluctance to fill the positions from within the company. What makes the matter worse is that since most engineers will only apply for the positions when they have no other option so it attracts B grade talent. Given this I would not higher someone with a Software Testing degree since I would see them a low grade talent no matter their performance.
To reduce the test team size and tighten the schedule I instead push for test driven development. The tester team should only have to pass off one the tests that the engineers already developed and crack the whip.
In the past I studied how to tell if a person is lying. I was quite distressed to find out how often the average person tells lies, white and otherwise. With effort I forgot everything I learned. I would rather be blessed with ignorance than a lie detector.
Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
