A guy whose evidence is "I've seen stats", without linking to them shouldn't be lecturing about hard evidence.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
On PC platforms perhaps. Not on server platforms.
Dominance where exactly? A helluva lot of Windows development is still done in C/C++. Java still has massive penetration in the enterprise. I'll admit that
As long as that's all you're using it for!
I bought lots of stuff off of RadioShack back in ye olden days. Two computers (an MC-10 and a CoCo3), several game ROMs, two printers, a one-sided floppy drive, OS/9 level 2, and dozens of doo-dads for various projects.
So yeah, if RadioShack wants to sell the fact that I bought a TP-10 thermal printer back in 1983, then go to town!
Step one, drive past the house - no sirens or lights, just see if there's anything odd. Step two, knock on a couple of the neighbours' doors - say that you've received a non-specific report of gunfire in the area, ask if they heard anything. Step three, from somewhere inconspicuous see if you can see in through the windows with binoculars. Step four, visit the nearest take-away and have someone in plain clothes take the food to the house pretending that they misread the number, look for signs of distress from the person answering the door. Step five, surround the house with armed officers at all exits and have someone in uniform knock on the front door and ask the person who answers to step outside - if they're refusing and showing signs of distress, then go in.
Or they could just forget all of their police training and pretend that their soldiers in enemy territory.
Racism is ok outside of the workplace? Thought not...
The workplace is special because it's somewhere where your freedom of association is limited. If you're being racist in a public place, I can leave or use my freedom of speech to tell you to shut up. If you're being racist in my house, I can ask you to leave (and call the police if you don't). If you're being racist in work, then my ability to do anything about it is limited by the management. If you are the management, then there's nothing that I can do about it except quit, and (depending on the state of the economy) that may hurt me more than you.
She sees the same absurdity in the "feminist" movement that I do.
The problem for feminists today is that their parents (or grandparents) won all of the easy battles. Now the only ones left are difficult and nuanced. Addressing them is hard - it's much easier to make up an easy target to attack than deal with real issues.
In the long run, the best method is to admit that large portions of California are simply not arable, not without basically robbing every drop of water to be found for about half a million square miles.
