Gee, that sounds like a great idea. I wonder what could possibly go wrong.
Probably nothing. The battery controller will simply prevent anything stupid from happening.
I see that you don't work in software.
Hamas launched their rockets into Israel, Israel retaliates with full scale massive military campaign --- Gaza Strip almost flattened as a result. While Hamas are terrorists (nobody can deny it) the Israelis are also not that 'non-terrorists' either
How did the US retaliate when Al Qaeda attacked them? How many Afghans were killed in that campaign, and how long did it last?
How did the US retaliate when Iraq attacked them? How many Iraqis were killed in that campaign, and how long did it last? For that matter, exactly _when_ did Iraq attack the US?
I don't know what certificates he settled on, but if you aren't doing a whole lot of international browsing, you can safely disable any foreign CAs (especially foreign government CAs or anything you can't read). In Firefox, you can get the country of origin by viewing the certificate and looking at Issuer, under the Details tab. "C = " will list the country code. Most of the big CAs are in the US, but there are a few big ones that aren't: Comodo, StartCom, Thawte, AddTrust.
In Firefox, you can disable without deleting, by clicking "Edit Trust...". Even if you delete a root CA, it will show back up on restart with all of its trust disabled. You can't delete them permanently from the UI.
Thanks. I did notice that a deleted CA returned on restart, but I didn't notice that it still had all of its trust disabled.
Have you heard of this thing called Google, numbnuts?
It's spelled googol, if you're talking about the number, and I don't see what that has to do with providing information about companies that provide PCB fab services.
First quality two-layer PCBs, gold flashed with solder mask and silk screen both sides, are available within 10-14 days for $5.00 per square inch, and for that price you get three of them.
From where? Links, please!
The largest advantage of Scratch is the immediate results and the mixture of multimedia content that can be done with literally just a single click of a button. It can be extended to further complexity just one or two mouse clicks at a time.
I disagree that multimedia and "click of a button" should be the goal when teaching children. Rather, I think that teaching them the computational process, and how to structure their thoughts, should be the goals.
For this, I completely disagree that Python is a viable replacement or even worse something that should be done instead of Scratch. Don't get me wrong, Python is a fine computer programming language and perhaps as a 2nd language to teach a kid it might be very useful. It is just lousy as an introductory environment for somebody in grade school or junior high school to learn the basic concepts of computer programming.
The other fun thing about Scratch that beats Python hands down is that Scratch is also multi-threaded with parallel processes happening as a major feature of the language. Kids doing stuff in Scratch don't even realize they are doing that kind of stuff until it is pointed out that some program/project they are making has nearly a dozen threads and even more event handlers being used. I don't see Python being nearly so easy to introduce such concepts.
Again, I disagree. Scratch seems to be hiding so much away that one can write a multithreaded application without realizing it? How does that teach structured thought processes? If the goal is to get whiz-bang graphics out the door quickly, the Scratch sounds great. If the goal is to teach a fun, productive hobby that could turn into a profession, then it sounds terrible. I suppose that the choice depends on one's goals.
What kind of IDE/environment are you using?
VIM. No, seriously, my eight year old uses VIM!
My first language was Logo. Couldn't do much with it, but it was fully interactive, which meant that you got immediate feedback as soon as you pressed Enter.
Perhaps that is why VIM is a good choice. In the learning stages one learns to use it, and the immediate feedback is a form of gratification if it does what you intended. And when VIM does something unexpected, we laugh and wonder what we can learn from that.
