Is it a hoax? I'm on tenterhooks.
Not really. If you're the kind of person who builds custom computers, when you call them up just say you replaced the motherboard. If they really push (and I've never had a problem with that) then just say the previous one went bad and had to be RMA'd or replaced. They're happy to remove the old motherboard from the license and apply the license to your new one.
Yep. My machine has had 3 new motherboards, 4 new gfx cards, 10 new RAM modules, 2 new hard drives, a new PSU, 2 new cases (one with additional go-faster stripes upgrade), 3 new montors, 4 new mice, a new keyboard and 5 new surround sound speakers. It's still going strong with the original OS.
How is that adjustable? Do you always have to work standing up?
I have read the text a couple of times. And it clearly states that Muslims are to DEFEND themselves against oppressors without mercy, but to live amongst them in peace if they are not being attacked.
But they can interpret ridicule or criticism as an attack or an oppression, can't they? That's the trouble with interpretation, anyone can put their own spin on it and use it to justify their actions.
I have no issue with pushing for diversity,
In seriousness, why? If the people in your office are mostly white males and they're doing a competent job, while the women and minorities who do choose to go into IT manage to get work at the same rate as white men do, where is the problem? Why is there this arbitrary need for "more diversity"?
But are they as bad as RollerCoaster Tycoon 4?
Except that 4 hostages did actually die.
I'm pretty sure he is now close to Allah while the fundamentalists burn.
I'm pretty sure that he's either just gone or, if alive in some sense, certainly not in any of the senses of the human-invented religions.
Where I used to work, we had 1000 people in the same open-plan room, 4 to a desk. Everyone shouted at each other to communicate and we often had to walk over a mile to a colleague's desk on the other side of the room, uphill both ways. We got showered with cold water every hour to wake us up, and sometimes this caused people to get electrocuted by their computer equipment.
If we start doing major exploration of deep space we're gonna need to use less ambiguous names for the sun and moon, as other planets may have a sun and moon.
It will feel that long.
So, on a standard US keyboard, is this sign a minus or a hyphen?: -
Right, because it's a daily problem I have that I want to put files called Polish and polish in the same directory. And I can't think of any way to differentiate them other than capitals.
What a dumb argument.
By the way, what about when you can't distinguish them by capitals? What if I want a file about my new table in the same directory as my table of figures? What do I do then?
Despite the fact that I think case-sensitivity is a Good Idea
Why? I've never heard a single good argument in favour. With programming, you often want case sensitivity to distinguish between a public Name and a private name, but the same need isn't there with files, and case-sensitivity is just more likely to lead to mistakes. I say POSIX should be changed to prefer case-insensitive filesystems.
I have source trees that I can't check out of an SVN server on windows because either the files get overwritten by different case filenames being aliased onto the same file
Windows' behaviour makes sense. What doesn't make sense is having Readme and readme in the same directory. What possible reason could one have for differentiating 2 files on nothing but case?
