Wifi hotspots are not really needed anymore. Most everyone has (nearly) unlimited cell data.
All of those are a pleasure to read.
I knew some people would call out the Economist, and I used to subscribe to it some years back - but unfortunately they dumbed it down quite a bit several years ago in a push to increase their subscription base... and it looks like they succeeded.
I remember being blown away by this game... basically a Donkey Kong style game but on the original IBM PC hardware. I read the review in PC Magazine and asked for it for my 14th birthday... I couldn't believe that things like swinging and jumping from swinging ropes while 4 other AI sprites chased me around was even possible on that original PC.
He even showed off a little by full screen scrolling in between levels.
I have a license for office, but I barely use it because I can't find most advanced features.
They destroyed the menu and replaced it with the ribbon. If you don't know the name of the feature you are looking for, then you are SOL (actually you can google a description of the feature you want to find out where it is, but that is ridiculous).
Menu UI is a long standing feature of mouse driven user interfaces, and if you think throwing it away is in any way acceptable, and you are in the business of UI design then you should be fired from your job.
You and I are like brothers in this regard. Most "funny" posts are anything but funny.
But then all of these clowns started moderating obvious attempts at being "funny" as "insightful". For every article, at least one more lame Monty Python quote manages to be a +5 insightful.
How do you deal with that?
Thanks. That was fun. I still miss OpenStep.
...and decide that what old guys want doesn't matter and then just trash all the old features and replace it with feature poor but millenial friendly white space and image filled bubble gum that uses responsive design and infinite scrolling even though I don't want that.
Rather than do what she did, let those of us who prefer, stay behind with the old interface.
I have to move off of my.yahoo and yahoo mail now, don't make me do that with Slashdot please.
For those of old enough to remember, "Big Top" made the OG IBM-PC do things that would have never thought possible.
In a huge amount of these cases, the issue of whether the members should be sued individually comes up again and again.
Seemingly, each judge seems to make their own decision on this. In the cases where the judge rules that they should be split up, the case is dropped. Then rinse and repeat with a new judge and new set of defendants.
After 3-4 years of this, hasn't there been a precedent or something or higher level court getting involved so that all these judges don't have to reconsider the same argument over and over again? Seems wasteful, and it keeps these idiots in business.

From what I have read, the American flags are completely white now due to the intense UV.
Disingenious example. Those phones are $5 a minute.
That can't be compared to a situation where everyone can Skype for free.
I occasionally get nostalgic for those days back in 1994 but I have a big problem reliving them due to the sophistication of the audio in this game. You see, it was designed to play high quality MIDI if you happened to have a $1000 sound card. Of course I nor most of my friends did not have that... I had the standard soundblaster chip on my 486.
So when I play it in DosBox or whichever emulator, the sound is just too good! It is not the same as when I played it before!
Any tips on how to recreate that standard 1994-1995 486 experience aside from finding an old pc and installing win95?

To maximize the effect, you should jump in the air to make it obvious you are frozen while the camera circles you.
