Agreed. the collection is a cheap piece. The auditing can become severely expensive.
They looked at all options before selling touchscreens for massive amounts of money. Oh wait...
I've always believed in the 80-20 rule. Selling software to people, you can only get it right for 80% of the people.
Barring the 20% of crazy religious people out there, as one of the 80%, understand that I really don't care enough about your shoes to misplace them even if I did work at the post office. There's not a conspiracy to keep Atheists barefoot (at least none I've heard of in our meetings). I really don't believe there any conspiracy to anger the atheists by delaying their packages (if there were it's would I guess be driven by the First National church of the Holy Postal Workers which isn't really my denomination).
I just don't get it. Maybe this is the 20% of atheists who feel like I'm oppressing you by believing in a higher power. I mean the shoe site does believe atheists should "come out" and find each other (http://www.atheistberlin.com/atheist/?we-dont-believe-in-any-god). Not a bad idea really. Although you should be careful. As a christian believe me when I tell you that when you get a group of like-minded people together and give them a little bit of time it's organize and BAM you've got a religion. I'm not an expert, but I don't think that's what you're going for. Although the little black dot as a symbol hasn't been used since Treasure Island (I don't think anyway).
And of course, the one joke that no one else thought of: "Who says Atheists have no soles??? They're shipped in from Germany!"
I don't think they are equally bad/wrong, but with a margin of error probably a 4% wrongness difference between the two. What baffles me beyond belief is people who will hold on to that 4% of rightness and say "This Party is Awesome!"
If I cooked a meal that had one plate of steaming dogshit, and another plate that was 96% steaming dogshit, and 4% top quality cuisine, would you really go on and on about how good that plate of mostly dogshit was?
FFS kick them all out and start again or something. Seriously, even the original Nintendo had a RESET button!
So good I've been waiting for Windows Nemesis "The OS X Re-write" to come out for years!
To be clear, she makes her connections on the internet. She makes her money on her knees. At least that's what I heard from kutahuja's mom.
Can you succinctly describe the fact of evolution and list the observations that validate it as a fact?
Meh, I think you're wrong. It's not as cool to be american on
I've been doing Java development for 15+ years and most of that in web apps. Production deployments to Linux, mainframes, and Windows. Sadly, most often, the production machines are Windows. A typical argument is that it is best to have the production system similar to development (and QA, and integration testing, and user acceptance testing) system to avoid surprises as the build travels through the process.
Concerning portability of Java across platforms, I can only recall having three issues and they are all related to file systems: paths (developer assumption), permissions, and Windows misreporting file creation time. For Java web apps, your portability issues are the same regardless of language--the browsers.
My favorite quote of all time (unfortunately I can't claim credit).
Saying Java is better cause it'll run on all platforms is like saying anal sex is better because it works on all genders.
Both hillbilly's approve?
As a gun owner, and a hacker, does that mean they'll have two reasons to hate me now?
I couldn't agree with you more. the key here is whether people KNOW about it or not. If a home user called their monitor their cpu it's not a big deal. If the guy selling the computer called the monitor a cpu, you'd never buy anything from him. It's a credibility question.
I'd love to help. I assume you've got a SCSI adapter with onboard DDR in the IMAC all-in-one right?
I know it's bitchy, but it's THERE!!!
No I'm pretty sure you were right to call them gears, since you were describing the ratio of two sprockets connected via chain. Now, if we could just get you to call them stabilizers instead of training wheels!
Thought you might want to know, you're not the only one. I'm a bit older now (30, not 25), and did about the same. I went to two years of college, but didn't complete even an associates. Basically I went long enough to meet someone who could get me a job coding. From there a string of code->network->code->code jobs for eight years. The only real difference is, I built my family first. It might slow the career down a little, but it's well worth it.
If you want to do well as a developer, be the most kick ass coder you ca, and be nice to non-coders. Everything else will sort of work itself out.
He didn't say demon, he said daemon. You know, a small service that runs in the background? Although I'm puzzled as to why the poster might think that having daemons would make someone want to commit suicide. Perhaps a memory leak in one was causing little room for other things in his life? Maybe a UI nagging daemon was constantly at the front of his mind, and he couldn't concentrate on anything else?
I love the analogy of the human brain vs. the computer system. Daemons to demons etc.
On a more serious note though, I'm glad that thus far
