Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
If you haven't tried these, do it and be amazed at how many sites load without stylesheets, pictures etc. It's amazing how badly shit is implemented - zero thought about graceful degradation.
- Konq saw a network share that I have to manually mount with dolphin (no big deal really)
- Konq hasn't crashed once since I changed back. Dolphin locked up regularly. (this was the big deal)
I've got my senior citizen mother using Slackware. She doesn't understand much of anything about computers, or viruses, or pretty much anything your average 15 year old would get about computers, but the interface is _still_ easy enough for her requirements (lolcats, email, reading news/recipes)
If she actually needs to change anything, it is past her abilities and she has to call me. She had to do that under windows, though, so no difference to me, + the added bonus that I don't clean a pile of malware off it every time I visit. Getting her on linux has cured a long standing headache.
say it, mean it and give em a lot of shit when they balk at the end result. Next time, they find time for the non coding parts of the SDLC.
Nothing wrong with covering a cam you are not going to use and plenty right about it if your shit gets rooted.
Goin out on a limb here, but I think 23 million is a bit pricey.
What you said.
At least fall through to a no-script page that tells me my browser sucks instead of failing to render. If they can't understand graceful degradation, they should get out of the business.
You can kick the shit out of a cop? way to go.
Can you kick the shit out of 6 cops? Cuz that is what round two is going to be.
Better to hold your temper while they are in control of your immediate destiny, remember names, remember faces and unload on them legally, after the fact if you feel compelled.
You're getting the government you deserve, by and large.
