I got these along with a cheap set of Samsung earbuds. Put the mold in your ear, and while it's soft put the earbuds in. After it hardens, drill a hole to the ear canal. I used a dremel with a 1/8 inch bit. Naturally, don't drill while it's in your ear. (sorry, but I know somebody's going to troll on that)
I love them. They are unobtrusive, comfortable, don't fall out, and are inexpensive. Best of all, they sound great.
I rewrote the software in Delphi (this was back in the 90's) and it was orders of magnitude faster.
Everything's bigger in Texas. Even our lies. After all, we got Bush, Jr. living here.
Really, this thread isn't about politics, and it didn't need to devolve there. There are plenty of other places to whine about politics.
Airlines have been handling luggage for a very long time, you would think they would have this figured out by now.
Anecdote: I flew Delta quite a bit some years ago and lived about 2 hours/90 miles away from the airport. They would routinely misplace my luggage (never lost it, thankfully) and they had to have somebody drive my bag to my house when they found it. This happened a dozen times. It must have cost them about the price of my ticket for each delivery.
I can only assume that it was because of the luggage missing connecting flights, but most of the time I had at least an hour layover. It just seems like they could make this work
We're already past the level where I can benefit from higher resolution on phones. I'm over 40 and already have reading glasses, but I'd need to get special phone-only glasses to see any more detail or smaller type.
Indeed, I use 1.5 glasses for reading, and 2.0 glasses for my phone.
Really, it depends. Is the stuff in Oracle using the database as a simple RDBMS? Then likely Postgres would be a good alternative. But there are many great features in Oracle that command the high price. The PL/SQL engine and all that comes with it is extremely powerful. Advanced Queueing is outstanding. The analytic functions are second-to-none. The tools that come with Oracle are great.
That said, I think most projects that need a database could do just fine with Postgres. I'm in the process of converting our corporate system from Oracle to PG now. I've worked with both systems extensively. For really large projects that need special features and absolutely bulletproof DR infrastructure, Oracle is the only way to go.
I choke when I say that, because I simply hate Oracle, the corporation. The database is stellar though...
