Dell just has to suggest a workaround "Recommend you plug in an external $5 speaker"
That's hardly a reasonable workaround for a laptop computer.
the rural homeowners.
Huh? I've lived rurally most of my life. None of the people I live near, or myself, are under any illusion of police being here within the half hour, and I can't imagine how we ever would be. Fortunately our rural fire brigade (bless those good men and women) have first aid & CPR training which makes a difference, but actual policing is done by things that go 'woof' and things that go 'bang'.

Heat hopefully won't be an issue. Let's hope heat output scales at least somewhat with component size that is 98% smaller.
And why would it do that? A given voltage drop multiplied by the current through it equates to a certain wattage of heat dissipation, regardless of the size of the package.
You have no business sending me CMYK images. I decide on the CMYK formula to use based on my press specs (which I sent you but you never read) and your ICC profile + RGB image.
I might need to print your image on two different presses with two different dotgains (o hai there username), which would necessitate two different CMYK files from you in this case.
C++, by its use of namespaces, avoids things like std::vector, std::string etc. being 'reserved words', but that doesn't change the fact that they're there to learn. Yes, Perl has a large number or reserved words compared to C et. al. but I've never felt that these are what makes Perl hard to learn.
When I began learning C++ I initially felt it was easy to learn - only because I didn't realise how much of it I had yet to face. In reality it's actually a long road to becoming a good C++ programmer - equally true of Perl. I think my biggest disadvantage was learning C and becoming quite proficient in it long before I learned C++. I never did find a C++ book that starts out with "Okay, so you already know C, here are all the C things you need to forget about"
I don't mean to criticise C++ at all (you won't have any trouble finding people who've gone to great lengths to do so) but I maintain that learning it well is not "easy" by any means.
