You still haven't crashed your helicopter, so why would this be any different?
I'm just hoping they'll try to make a database this time...
Oh no, I certainly didn't expect anything else. I just wanted to (humorously) highlight the fact that the original post is making MS sound like a sinking ship with struggling product lines and a bailing CFO, while overall their situation is nowhere near as gloomy.
Ah, yes, Microsoft is in deep shit now, what with the record revenue and what not. No wonder the CFO ran away. 2013 is going to be the year of Linux on the desktop, all hail RMS!
>Just because a Head Chef job is really rough, doesn't mean that the IT job is any less rough.
Well, it could mean just that. I'm not going to comment on the head chef as I have no experience, but extrapolate that to miners or fishermen, say: you have to catch at least a certain amount of fish to get paid, work outside in shitty weather, and there's a non-trivial chance of dying horribly. Does i make sitting on your naked ass at home sound less rough?
I think the point might be that the echo chamber is developing some sort of persecution complex, whereby only the IT employees are hard working, valuable, over-stressed, underpaid, and most threatened by offshoring and immigration.
It's important to keep an overall perspective, otherwise you come off as VW Phaeton owners complaining about slow ashtrays to the rest of the world.
Personally, I'm very happy with such size in that respect, but my girlfriend does complain that 10" is uncomfortably large, however.
And in Austria you need a reflective vest for every passenger. And if this wasn't silly enough, then in Russia and Ukraine, as I suspect in most ex-Soviet countries, also a fire extinguisher. In the Czech Republic a year or so ago they changed the requirements for the first aid kit, thus screwing anyone who didn't buy the new version. Cops love to check all of this too if they're bored or aren't reaching their quotas otherwise, so be prepared to unload everything from the trunk to demonstrate that you do, in fact, have all of this crap.
Shit's getting ridiculous, really, soon I'll be going for Sunday drives with a surgeon riding shotgun, just in case.
But nevertheless quite interesting. The idea of updatable views is certainly a good one, but it seems that the current limitations make this feature more or less useless for now:
- The view must have exactly one entry in its FROM, which must be a table or another updatable view.
- The view definition must not contain WITH, DISTINCT, GROUP BY, HAVING, LIMIT, or OFFSET clauses at the top level.
- The view definition must not contain set operations (UNION, INTERSECT or EXCEPT) at the top level.
- All columns in the viewâ(TM)s select list must be simple references to columns of the underlying relation. They cannot be expressions, literals or functions. System columns cannot be referenced, either.
- No column of the underlying relation can appear more than once in the viewâ(TM)s select list.
- The view must not have the security_barrier property.

You say that like it's a bad thing!
Worse than Buttfuckers?
First: Hold onto them until they're actually worth something. Sometime in the middle of the DDR4 lifecycle, it will become nearly impossible to find new 4GB DDR3 sticks, so people will have to turn to used sticks if they want to upgrade their machines from 8GB (4x2GB or 2x4GB) to 16 GB (4x4GB).
History tells us that they will be valued at at least twice the original market rate. So sell now and get ~$7.5k, or wait 2-3 years and likely get $15-20k. I'd wait.
That's a good point. I just had to RMA a module of extended-warranty DDR2 RAM. Ignoring for a moment the fact that they asked me to send the whole kit instead of just the faulty module, more importantly instead of replacing it, they refunded me the money instead. Which is just slightly less money than what new (and slower!) DDR2 memory costs. Oops.
In the end I managed to find the last few identical kits in some weird online store, but another year or two and I'd be completely fucked.
>Valve is already releasing their game.
Oh yeah? Wake me up once they get around to releasing Episode 3. So far I have surpassed Valve's ep3 revenue by about infinity percent.
Haha, what do you have, a T520? I was excited about the T530 until I saw the keyboard. It's not even the chiclet thing, it's the missing row and consequently fucked up layout!
Aaanyway, I've been getting extremely impressive battery life out of the Sandy based laptops, so the future looks bright
"So fucking what?"
People die from everything all the time, including boring crap like water. And I don't mean by drowning, just by drinking too much of perfectly fine water. But speaking of water, swimming pools are more dangerous for children than guns, and when are those getting banned?
Somebody somewhere is definitely making millions off those, yet they were responsible for 550 children drowning in 1997, if you RTFA. So?
