For some reason nobody considers "I have no idea, we're still investigating" an appropriate answer.
Actually, almost everyone involved in some official capacity gives that answer. But that is not what the press wants, so they keep asking (Reporter: "Do you suppose speed could have been an issue?") until someone says something else that the reporter considers interesting (Tired cop: "It's possible") and uses that quote, or some mangled version of it. (Press: "Speed may have led to fatal accident").
I've been horribly misquoted by reporters and stopped talking to them about a decade ago.
That said, I maintain a peronal site reporting local weather thst is pure HTML. The server for the single pahe is very basic... cat(1). It works and is very secure.
Gee, isn't that the lesson of Google's initial success? Keep it simple and clean. No need for eye candy and extra bells and whistles. They add bugs and detract from the purpose of the site. As time has gone on, Google has drifted away from this concept, but the KISS principle remains valid and clearly had worked well for Kentucky.
Web sites, especially those with a single purpose, don't need 7 fonts, cool graphics, Flash flash, Java, or even CSS. Not that any of these (excepting Flash flash) are bad, but too many web designers seem to think that they are mandatory. The cost in development times, reliability, and ease of use is only justified by ego of developers and their managers. The purpose of the site is to provide important information and not to make health insurance look sexy!
"Illegal' is not the correct term. Being an undocumented resident of the US is not a criminal act. It really can't be because that would require engaging the full criminal justice process which would be totally impossible to scale. Instead it is a civil issue with no penalties other then being removed from the US. Deportation can be done quickly and with minimal overhead. (This has both good and bad sides as citizens have been deported on occasion.)
So undocumented IS the correct term. I suppose "extra-legal" would also be correct, but that is mostly a legalese term and is less specific than "undocumented".
Again, wtf are you on about? Mint didn't fork GNOME 2. They forked GNOME 3 and created a new DE based on GTK3. The GNOME 2 fork is called Mate and is independent of Linux Mint.
Seriously, no one is going to take you seriously if you can't even get the basics straight.
Lots of pot calling the kettle black. Mint has two DEs, GTK3 (but not really a Gnome3 fork) based Cinnamon, and Gnome2 fork MATE. While Cinnamon is GTK 3 based and certainly uses Gnome 3 code, it has very little similarity to Gnome3, retaining the configurability of Gnome2 rather then shoving someone's idea of how you should work down your throat.
I switched to MATE and have a fully functional desktop again.
The USPS does not promise that "they will deliver through rain, sleet, snow or hail". That "promise" was just a phrase carved into the New York City Post Office and 8th and 33rd. The actual sentence is "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."
According to the National Postal Museum , the USPS, the successor to the Post Office Department, has no official motto and there are remarkably few guarantees offered by the quasi-governmental organization.
This is generally true, but believe that example was a bad one.
There is a class of trademarks called a "famouse trademarks". I'm pretty sure that Nike is in this category and it expands trademarks outside of the usual geographic and trade limits.
People seem unable to read papers any longer. This is especially true of the news media. The study on earthquakes repeatedly pointed out that there was NO evidence that fracking itself led to earthquakes. It said that the practice of pumping the toxic waste from fracking into deep wells for disposal, a common, but not universal practice, could and did lead to quakes.
Back in the mid 1960s Colorado experienced a series of quakes, some strong enough to cause damage. Those earthquakes were tracked to the use of deep well disposal at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal. The well was used for disposal of chemical warfare agents (toxic gases and their components). The strongest was felt quite strongly in Trinidad, CO, some 200 miles south of the well. I grew up there and felt it personally. This led to the discontinuation of this disposal method.
I am simply amazed that half a century after this well documented and researched event that it seems to have been forgotten.
What goes around, comes around. Except for Dell and HP(/Compaq/DEC). They're just dead. (Agilent is the new HP)
No. Agilent is the old HP.
Lingual politics! It's a actually very common.
Almost everyone in the US (and probably other places) assume that the ISO is the International Standards Organization. But it's not.
The ISO (universal Latin alphabet abbreviation) is, in English, "The International Organization for Standardization". ISO was selected (like UTC) because it was not the initialism of the name it represents in any major language. See the Wikipedia article.
Yes, that was SOP when I was in college, but it only helps. It is often possible to swap two cards an not make a visible "jag" in the line. Still, it works pretty well.
I used to see people carrying multiple cardboard boxes of cards and was impressed until I learned that they were fairly simple COBOL programs. That is when I decided to never learn COBOL. Once saw a student crying after dropping a two tray COBOL deck on a windy day.
Obviously steel wool is a non-starter and I'll leave the bleach and ammonia to others at the shallow end f the gene pool.
