Why not Zoidberg?
No really, I used to use King of the Hill characters, but when it came to a server at a new host, I couldn't answer the above question, and now I have a server named zoidberg.
It is incompatible with all other websites and all other browsers - it only works with the combination of Chrome+Google's own websites.
This is flat out wrong. Just this morning I used Chrome to connect to a test server that was running a node.js implementation of SPDY. I verified the connection using chrome://net-internals. It worked well.
There is nothing in chrome that prevents this from working on other domains/websites.
There is nothing stopping anyone from implementing their own server.
End of FUD.
OS X is mostly Openstep which is mostly Nextstep which is mostly BSD 4.3 and Mach 2.5.
I don't know what you consider 'Unix' but I would say the best description of OS X is that is closer to BSD than anything else.
Just for fun sometime turn off graphical boot on an OS X machine, and watch the Regents of the University of California message scroll by
I have to assume that you are trolling, or that you haven't really used Drupal.
I've never seen anyone claim that the node system is an ORM, because it isn't. It's just a table(s) in a database, and a module that provides code to manipulate that data, but is not object oriented, nor is it mapped in anyway that resembles an ORM. The mapping to properties->columns is not even, and there is no ability to relate other nodes or objects based on the presence of another table, all of those operations are left as an exercise for the developer needing to implement it. This is why the other statement about 8 tables just to express the relationship between two objects makes no sense.
I'm quite partial to original series that you find on USA: Burn Notice, White Collar, Psych, Covert Affairs, etc. It not the best writing and production, but I'd rather watch any of those over pointless sitcoms any day (I also prefer the longer format). Several of these shows have been using CGI or cheesy digital effects in places that really surprised me. In Covert Affairs all the external aerial shots of the CIA headquarters are rather cheesy 3D, and don't add much to the show and ultimately take me out of the story and annoy me each time they are shown.
Also in one of the seasons of White Collar for 4 or 5 episodes every time Peter meets his wife, they are obviously in a studio with a green screen and the New York background is being inserted digitally. I later found out this was because the actress playing his wife was pregnant and couldn't travel to New York where they shoot on location most of the time. I still don't understand why they had to be outdoor settings in every scene though, and the overall effect was so bad that I wanted to puke and ended up fast-forwarding through those scenes rather than be distracted by how bad the effects are.
I suspect that overall the technology has gotten alot cheaper and more than ever the 'fix it in post' attitude is taking over when studios and networks are trying to tighten up on costs, and increase profit margins. This is in turn leading to cheaper and cheaper digital effects that end up really distracting from the end product rather than making it better.
