Depending on his/your/one's particular flavor of libertarianism, private property rights might not even exist as a thing. Certainly one's private property rights extend only as far as one is capable of defending them, as in, with a gun.
Awfulness like Cinderella III?
HTML isn't a programming language, it's a text markup (i.e. text formatting) language. SGML is a markup language. OpenGL is an API, not a programming language.
If HTML is a programming language, and creating HTML "pages" is "programming", then aren't you programming as soon as you turn on "reveal codes" in WordPerfect? How about "reveal formatting" in Word? Are you programming now just because you can see the formatting tags as you type text?
Like what hardware, exactly? I've heard this argument, but I personally don't have a single piece of hardware that I'd like to use but can't. This is an honest, curious question.
How about extortionists? Are they moral actors? I don't see how going from extortion on the internet to rape of a woman isn't shifting the goalposts.
I think Q put it best, when he said, about the internet:
"It's not safe out there. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it is NOT for the timid."
Ah, that's not what unions do. They guarantee that no matter how poorly you do your job, you can't be fired, because that's not fair. Pride in your work and building a better future is a whole other thing.
Some random AC claiming to be informed by someone claiming to have access to master keys, it's not exactly a reliable source, is it?
I'm a senior TrueCrypt developer, and I have access to the Master Keys that can unlock any TrueCrypt encrypted data.
Now do you feel better?
strstr() is fine, yes, but what about strncpy()?
"Very efficient" is still much less efficient, because on 16-bit characters, you simply split at char_count * 2 bytes, where with UTF-8, you have to examine every byte up to char_count to see if any of them are part of a surrogate pair.
The way I understand it is that UCS-2 (not UTF-16, because UTF-16 supports surrogate pairs) gives significant performance advantages for operations like substring(). That's why lots of platforms use it internally (.NET, Java, others I'm sure).
Yes, because it's better than leaving said charred remains to rot. Charred remains smell bad, foreign or not.
If that's true, then it's great for him. It means he'll be able to hire more subordinates, thereby climbing the corporate ladder.
The OP doesn't see the procedure as a liability. That's a lie. The OP sees the CAB as a threat to his authority. He sees the servers as "his", and this will remove some of the power he has over them.
The OP needs to understand that the servers belong to the company, and that the company gets to decide how patches are approved and administered. If the job changes into something he's no longer interested in doing, then he needs to move on.
Being an asshole administrator might seem like fun, but usually, in "normal" businesses, it gets you fired.
