Comment: The problem is not what to learn (Score 1) 385

by hcs_$reboot (#47862267) Attached to: Unpopular Programming Languages That Are Still Lucrative
Languages are not equally accessible. The most popular languages , like PHP, allow many people - almost everybody - to program, whatever their background is, and whatever the outcome (performance, maintenance, ...) of the application may be. Among this many people is diluted a rather low percentage made of some good developers who could easily adapt and program in something else, like R or Haskell (they don't do it because they don't need to).

In other words, hire R developers to make better PHP programs.

My question: if MSI, Gigabyte, Asus (and by extension Asrock) are out, who's left and are they any good? Note that I want to build a (probably dual-boot, but don't know for sure) gaming and "other" high-end machine with one of the above chips so we're talking Z97 or X99; however, these stories seem to point to the problems being M$-isms in the BIOS/UEFI structures rather than actual hardware incompatibility, combined with a real lousy attitude (despite the Steam distro being real soon now)."

+ - Celebrity nude pictures leaked due to apparent iCloud hack-> 1

swinferno (1212408) writes "Hundreds of nude, semi-nude, and revealing pictures of female celebrities were leaked overnight after being stolen from their private collections. Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst, and pop star Ariana Grande were among the celebrities apparently shown in the pictures, which were posted on infamous web forum 4chan.

It's unclear how the images were obtained, but anonymous 4chan users said that they were taken from celebrities' iCloud accounts. The accounts are designed to allow iPhone, iPad, and Mac users to synchronize images, settings, calendar information, and other data between devices, but the service has been criticized for being unreliable and confusing. Earlier this year, Jennifer Lawrence herself complained about the service in an interview with MTV.

Several media contacted Apple for more information but they have not commented on this yet.

it's the cook that prepares the food. It's not the camera, it's the photographer that shoots the picture. It's not the racing car, it's the driver that wins the race. It's not the programming language, it's the programmer that creates the application.

Yes but a good cook will do better with a good knife, a good photog will be better with a good camera, and a good programmer will perform better with a well designed language.

+ - Chile earthquake triggered icequakes in Antarctica->

sciencehabit (1205606) writes "In 2010, a powerful magnitude-8.8 earthquake struck off the coast of central Chile, rocking much of the country and producing tremor as far away as Argentina and Peru. But a new study suggests its effects were felt even farther away—in Antarctica. In the wake of the Maule temblor, the scientists found, several seismic stations on the frozen continent registered “icequakes,” probably due to fracturing of the ice as the planet’s crust shook."
