"From my experience, one thing you do need when learning to code is an ability to stifle your rage when computers donâ(TM)t do what you want.
I remember helping out my fellow classmates in the terminal room during my freshman C class [two hints to how old I am in that sentence!]. The biggest impediment I found was that they would get so upset and flustered at the computer that they could not calm down and try to figure out their errors! Once they relaxed, they typically quickly could see the problem.
That's going to work just as well as warranties.
"Oh my gosh, I can't void the warranty!"
"Oh my gosh, The FCC doesn't want me doing that!"
I wish them the best.
From Patrick himself...
"As long as it works, we'll include it."
I've always preferred LILO over Grub. It's simplicity has always been great.
It is because the studios asked them for a monetary number well outside Netflix's ability to pay and still stay afloat.
Good content costs good money. Netflix doesn't even own its most successful shows (Media Rights Capital owns "House of Cards" and Lionsgate owns "Orange Is the New Black"). Their first cheap Starz streaming deal was a weird technicality. Everyone knew when it ran out that Netflix could not support its streaming of quality content by charging less than what a cable or satellite provider would for a collection of content of similar quality.
There used to be a web page called "Your Eyes Suck at Blue". You might find it on the Wayback machine.
You can tell the luminance of each individual channel more precisely than you can perceive differences in mixed color. This is due to the difference between rod and cone cells. Your perception of the color gamut is, sorry, imprecise. I'm sure that you really can't discriminate 256 bits of blue in the presence of other, varying, colors.

Given that CPU and memory get less expensive over time, it is no surprise that algorithms work practically today that would not have when various standards groups started meeting. Ultimately, someone like you can state what the trade-offs are in clear English, and indeed whether they work at all, which is more productive than trading naah-naahs.
I believe this was covered in the documentary.
Okay... A couple weeks ago, I decided to take another look at Python-- the first such look I've given the language since around 1997.
So far, I have the basic stuff down. I've got a quick script down that provides functions to add ANSI colors to my output, so I have that going for me.
I have Python 2.x on a VM on my work system, but I'm using Python3 on my home system.
I'm very upset, I'm one of the 5% of humanity who has ever flown on an airplane, and I'm just flustered that I have to pay a too much to be able to reach some of the 200 Terabytes of data and 3 billion users on the Internet from six miles above the ground while moving at 550 MPH.
