You don't write them every time, you type a letter or two, smash enter to pick the autocomplete suggestion (the method you want is almost always the first or second option) and then use tab to jump to the next parameter value to enter.
In this case, increased verbosity means less rote memorisation and more grokking of the general gist of API patterns so you really can focus more on solving the problem at hand rather than bashing out code.
Using my own argument against me... touché AC.
It's the latter and seems to be confined to the United States at the moment. European and Asian forces seem to get the cooperation they need and African forces, those countries who have them, are way too busy with actual crime to bother with making crimes up.
I was in Manila awhile back, and something I found interesting is the huge difference in the attitude of law enforcement and security forces. I always feel very nervous around armed security forces in the US and Mexico, but in Manila it was as if you were the customer, and they were there to serve you. They would say yes sir and no sir, hold doors open for you, and were simply pleasant and helpful. That's the kind of police force we need here at home. One that sees us as their customer, rather than there enemy.
So would that include something like a Terramax UGV (http://oshkoshdefense.com/technology-1/unmanned-ground-vehicle/) coupled with a Boomerang anti sniper system (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boomerang_%28countermeasure%29)?
This would give a military the ability to send an unmanned vehicle into almost any terrain (rural or urban), which could respond instantly to shots fired at it with its own deadly return fire. And, considering the hell that Marines faced in Helmand with IEDs and snipers while slogging through muddy fields, wouldn't this present a far better option (particularly for the Marines and their families)?
Or is Seattle saying McDonald's cashiers are worth the same as coders?
Hello from Seattle AC! I couldn't have said it better myself.
I guess you don't count the fact that the US Federal government is spending billions of dollars to try to repair some of the damage from Snowden's theft and leaks as detrimental. You'll be helping to pay for that since you live in the US. No doubt GCHQ will be paying some bills as well.
There has certainly been other fallout from that, but apparently we can count on you to never go looking for it.
Wait, that argument isn't logical. What is the government spending billions of dollars trying to repair some of the damage if there are no detrimental affects from the leaks (which you confirmed in your rebuttal)? Sounds to me like they are spending billions of dollars covering up the mess they themselves created. Maybe they should just stop doing that. Problem solved.
