This news concerns me. It reminds me of the time that we spotted WMDs from satellite and surveillance, and invaded Iraq. Thank God we found those weapons once we got there. Oh, right....
Estimates are necessary, so that you can determine project cost and (sometimes) duration. However, most projects succumb to my amended Parkinson's Law which states "work contracts or expands so as to fill the time available for its completion" .
...but those Windows 10 icons are pretty bad. Someone in the design department doesn't know that "flat" doesn't have to mean "done in MS Paint". The new Adobe CC icons are "flat" but contain very subtle gradients, which is why they look great. The MS icons are thin and hollow in comparison.
I'm little disturbed that the childhood vaccination poll is only 86 (scientists) vs. 68 (public). I would have anticipated a much higher value for the scientists.
Oh you mean, If you resort to personal insults in a comment, you can expect to have your comment treated with scorn it deserves?
He said that if someone insulted HIS mother, they should expect a punch, which implies that the punch would come from him, unless he has a posse of Vatican guard specifically detailed to take care of Pope's mother insulters. As before, not exactly turning the other cheek.
I guess that whole "turn the other cheek" thing is passÃ©.
That's fine for APIs that require registration. But I use the Calendar API. It doesn't require registration, and like many people I was caught out on the hop on November 17th when the v2 API was shut down. Like I said I'm not complaining. The v3 API is superior, but I would like to know if there is simple notification system available.
Not that I'm complaining, but you really do need to pay attention to Google's plans if you have any applications that make use of their APIs. They do love to cast things adrift on a pretty regular basis. Maybe I don't do enough development to pay the proper attention, but does Google have a single source for announcements like this? Perhaps an RSS feed would work, then I could use Google Reader to keep an eye on things. Oh, right.
Why is it that these major news outlets (Forbes, CNET, CNN, etc) all have articles about this new trojan/virus. They quote statistics from Symantec about the number of infect machines, and yet, not one describes how you can detect an infection. They must know. One previous post identifies a Symantec white paper describing the trojan's behavior (Here). Why don't these articles describe the steps required to detect it? It's not like they're under any obligation to encourage readers to buy into Symantec's bloated anti-virus products.
The Old Reader (http://theoldreader.com/) works pretty well for me. Not quite as sophisticated or instantly speedy as Google was, and it can take a few more minutes to be up-to-date, but free and you can import your feeds, which you had already exported from Google Reader, right?
I only looked at the Sudoku code, but writing a brute force puzzle solver in a procedural programming language hardly qualifies it as a suitable programming language for general puzzle solving.
Indestructible. The ultimate keyboard. Bought one as a spare 12 years ago, just in case. Still sitting in its box. The best!
