This is me over at SN:
I'm SO sick of this 'Fuck Beta' crap.
So instead of bitching about it to corporate owners who do not care, get off your arses and build something better.
http://altslashdot.org/ seems to be offline at the time of writing - a good effort but when I did look at it yesterday it seems to be 90% ideas, and sod all development. The best sites on the net, didn't spring into life fully formed, they evolved. The important thing is to just get something up and working as fast as possible.
(Why am I not joining the effort? I'm a Windows guy, my linux foo is simply not good enough else I would.)
Anyway, rant over...
Aha thanks. Good reading on that link. I now understand much better what's going on.
Ignoring the '3 line' thing because that's just dumb, my vote for the most run piece of code on the planet right now would be:
DNS. Either the part that queries or the part that answers.
Think about how many times that's being called at this moment, globally.
(And yes, this Ask
Mind sharing which Honeywell it was that you bought?
I've recently swapped out an old rotary one for a DT90E, and I'm really not happy with it - it keeps flicking the boiler on/off too often
That would be this:
I've just scanned the CSV version - they all seem to be US users as well, either that or Snapchat has useless geographical data.
I tried that - then discovered that MS Exchange* will NOT do ActiveSync properly to some devices unless the cert is proper trusted one.
If the world wants https-everywhere, then a) free trusted signed certs must be available for everyone (like StartSSL offers, but with wildcard certs as well), and b) the ability to attach different certs to virtual hosts on the SAME ip must be enabled (IIS on Windows can't do this - can Apache/non-MS-Webservers do it?)
(*And no, I wont swap to a Linux/SendMail/Whatever solution, as I'm a professional MS consultant, so have to eat my own dog food)
You're changing your MAC address? wut? and why?
Because that's a good way to 'force' your ISP to re-allocate you a new IP immediately. Not that I agree with the practice as it's clearly not working in this case.
IIRC, the baddie starship in 'Into Darkness' *IS* a 'Dreadnought' class - so you may be right about that connection.
...code compatible with the most incompatible OS currently available
Also the most widely used on the desktop, which makes your argument invalid.
Unlike Linux, Windows enjoys (typically) a compile once, run anywhere model. Hence the desire from Windows users to obtain pre-compiled binaries - why should I waste time compiling source into the same binary that countless other Windows users have already got?
I want to enjoy using my platform of choice, not waste endless hours watching packages download, and compilers run.
Why is all the good stuff already modded 5, when I have mod points?
This. Pretty much why I don't use my Mod points when I get them any more. I'm a daily
There is a lot of stupidity in that article, e.g. the mention of the fact that the buses' schedules are withheld from the public.
Yeah, so what? We also don't publish the schedules of our corporate shuttles, or our internal IP addressing schemes, or whatnot. Why should we?
And I love the idea that there was never a society with different socioeconomic tiers in it. That cozy egalitarian middle-class wonderland from the 1970s that he describes ignores the fact that there was plenty of poverty and shitty schools elsewhere in the US.
Hey man, Catullus 16 is one of the classics.
