Kids will be familiar with whatever he/she has had time to play with. Ability to build legos doesn't come built it, kids who haven't seen one will still have to learn how to build them.
Intels predicament has nothing to do with drivers. Times change and they didn't change fast enough.
It seems this one is being spread by birds, but frankly doesn't it seem like other diseases are killing way more than this instance of ebola?
>can Chinese intel agencies do it to you too?
They already do it. EVERYONE DOES IT. That's the point you seem to be missing. I'm totally OK with my government spying on you/your government. I assume your government is doing the same.
It's an intelligence agency, it spies on people. The only thing to discuss is whether it is allowed to spy on American citizens. Everyone else is fair game AFAIC
The thing I hate most about science is the "guessing game". You either know, or you do not. Stop giving advice based on guesses.
That's unfortunate that we loose scientific abilities because of political reasons. Science in this country already suffers from enough political religious groups and budget cuts. Hopefully SpaceX or the airforce will be able to fill the gap until it stabilizes.
For it to work both parties have to operate in good faith. Stealing parts of other countries is not good faith.
They did negotiate the contract, some parts were removed, but none of the linked articles said anything about the "dramatic" clause being excluded. They were very well aware, like in all other reality show productions, that their words and actions would be twisted for dramatic effect.
I read Adriel Wallick's post. Basically he went on a game show where they agreed or were aware of producers being able to use anything for dramatic effect. Then one douchdb, asks them some inflammatory questions about women games and they lose their shit.
Ok in a normal office environment I would agree, but this is a TV show, you want people to watch it. it needs drama, not a bunch of nerds making video games because that is very boring by itself.
What happened on the set it seems is what happens on all those 'reality show' sets. Pump up the drama make contestants look like idiots. If you can't stand this shit maybe you should never have agreed to it at all.
> Oh if only Microsoft had given them more than like 10 years notice of end-of-support, they might have had time to prepare....
I've been in shops where the key mission critical app was 30 years old. All of the shiny new MBAs would come in and try and replace that thing with newer tech but would ultimately fail. The 30 year old product did the job and the shiny new things couldn't.
ATMs are such a key part of their business that it really makes no sense for them to not be in total control.
Linux allows that.
Although they should have used a more industrial product to begin with. The choice really shouldn't be between Linux and Microsoft. There should be better targeted options and the market should have allowed those to thrive.
If your mission critical app is 30 years, why would you use XP?
You get charged for bandwidth so don't think it's cheap
So what you are telling me is there is a shortage because you aren't willing to market value for good programmers, but you won't take average programmers either. So what exactly is this supposed to solve? You'll just end up with a bunch of average programmers in the end anyway because the good programmers will be attracted away by market forces.
Maybe what you need to do is increase the pay to make it a more attractive place to work.
Where is this shortage or programmers problem coming from? Last I check there are lots and lots of them. If they are looking for good programmers, they wont solve it by offering one course...
could a really smart ant model the entire earth?
I'm always amused by posts like this. You're bitching at MS because they are not #1, yet if there were #1 you would be bitching at them too!
