I've used Visual C#/GTK# (using SharpDevelop's IDE or MonoDevelop) for the past eight years as an introductory CS language at my high school. I feel the forms allow students to create a quick GUI program while still having the well-defined variables and object-oriented principles that will make them successful in AP Java or C++ whathaveyew. Our HS sequence for programming goes Visual C# to Java to C++ (for data structures)
If it was really important to solve the problem, TPTB would adequately fun the institutions it has issues with, rather than just calling them before a hearing and pillorying them in the public eye.
If Congress really wanted to increase computational ability, they would apportion more money to NOAA earmarked for that purpose.
It's easier to get mad and shake your fist than write a check.
I was looking for that and can't believe I missed it. Thanks for pointing it out to me.

His analysis doesn't seem to take into account Martin originally wrote books 4 and 5 as one book, Seems to me those numbers should be averaged. Then again, IANAS.
My mother turned sixty. A couple of years ago, after being called upon to fix a virus issue on XP for the nth time, I installed Ubuntu on her system. I used XPGnome scripts to make it look like windows XP, installed chrome and put an IE icon on the desktop linking to it, installed OpenOffice, set the default to save to
You may want to refrain from having a 73" TV delivered to your car then.
Would it be much better being dropped off in front of your house, waiting for you to get home? Because that always works out well.
I wonder if the existence of miles of fiber just waiting in San Antonio is part of the reason they're considering it.
This. When the ground temps hover around 40F, the snow melts quite easily. Then the air temps get in the 20's and water refreezes on the road. The ice is much more dangerous than the snow. That's why we close schools, businesses, etc.
And it's not the dusting that we get annually. We can handle that. It's when we get 2-3 inches of precipitation that forms ice on our roads that makes it dangerous. We don't drive with bags of kitty litter in our trunks, or just whip out our chains when it gets dangerous. So we shut down. If its orchestrated well, it's a fun holiday we can all laugh about afterwards (See "The Snow" from San Antonio, 1985. If it's not orchestrated well, well...
We can all complain how people in other regions can't handle unconventional weather - Hurricanes in New York (don't build where it floods), 100F+ temps in the Midwest (install air conditioners), Snow in the deep south (buy more snowplows, chains, salt, sand, etc.) Yes, there are solutions that make the situations tenable. No, the capital investment for an event that happens every xx years isn't worth the financial losses from shutting down the city for the time it takes to deal with the situation.
Didn't Tom Scott already talk about this one?
I didn't say it was easy. Good privacy is hard. Creating your own robust software is hard. So the options are to become a neo-luddite, or some open-source fascist. Or accept what is out there, for all the benefits and penalties that are out there. It _is_ a matter of trust.
What I did say was if one doesn't like their options, they need to do something about it. Contribute to an open source project. Call out the worst offenders publicly. Support those that do it right.
I'm sorry you saw this as a personal attack on you and your browser.
