Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
You could always e-mail copies of web sites to yourself and view them in Microsoft Outlook's HTML renderer which has almost non-existant CSS support.
You are already being penalized for credit card purchases. It's an expense that is currently spread over all customers
This is how it should be. We want to encourage getting rid of money.
This would just allow those people who want to pay cash to not pay the credit card cost.
That's fine. I'll be shopping elsewhere, but apparently you have enough cash-carrying customers so you won't miss me anyway.
I understand that people who love carrying around cash don't like to pay credit card fees, just like we credit card users don't like to be additionally penalized for not carrying around assloads of cash.
Carrying around a lot of cash sucks. If a retailer wants to penalize me for that, then I'll go somewhere else.
cowboy devs who think that "practices" interfere with their "creativity," and the "users" (aka THE PEOPLE YOUR JOB EXISTS TO SERVE) are somehow beneath notice.
Lol, such bullshit. I am the most customer-focused individual on my team, and I am constantly getting yelled at for not ping-ponging tickets back at the users for pedantic reasons.
The goal isn't to actually do any work or help people. The goal is to make sure you close the tasks in your queue before the end of the sprint so that the productivity reports are stellar. This makes the boss look good. It's also easier to justify his budget if you're constantly putting out fires rather than actually installing some fire prevention.
HOW MANY TIMES have I been forced to close a ticket even though it isn't done, and then have to work on it later because the shit is still broken. Obviously, this system requires a bit of planning, so you have to way overestimate projects to allow time for fixing shit that was prematurely closed but not actually fixed.
The nail int he coffin for me on the Google side was the Google Drive sync client on OS X, it crashed constantly, failed to sync files all the time and used a crap ton of CPU time draining the battery of my MacBook Air
I used to have a lot of issue with Google Drive on my Mac when it first came out (the sync issues were certainly frustrating), but it's been running very smoothly for quite awhile now. I can't comment on the CPU/power consumption, though.
umm, 5 days left as of this post... http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1061646928/vlc-for-the-new-windows-8-user-experience-metro?ref=search
Genuinely curious, as I am not an expert in these areas, but what is wrong with VirtualBox?
Sure there was a lot more money but I'm a crap manager and I know it.
Except for the self-awareness, you seem perfectly qualified.
> KDE is probably the best option for anyone using mouse and keyboard.
Ford is the best option for anyone needing transportation for use on the road.
Most of the people I know are more interested in whether it plays Netflix over DVDs.
It's difficult to ignore them as you're walking into the funeral home to say a final goodbye to your child who was just shot in the face at the elementary school they attended.
This used to be good advice, because Macs were such a small share of the market that the malware authors didn't bother with them. This isn't quite so true any more.
It is true that Macs are not (relatively) free from threats anymore, but damn, they sure have a lot fewer to deal with. No?
Yes they can currently apparently be turned off but I don't want to be messing like that.
It's not too difficult: sudo apt-get remove unity-lens-shopping
That said, I still agree with you. Once an OS starts to have a ton of stuff you have to turn off upon install/reinstall, I tend to want to use something else.
I've surprised by many of the countries on your list.
Can you give some examples of what you've observed that we non-travelers might find surprising/interesting?
