Perhaps they're hoping to startle Amazon et al. into filing amicus briefs in their favor.
if we can prove that something is true or false, and a religion teaches the opposite, then the religion should be updated. People make mistakes, we're only human, right?
But according to cargo-cult Christians (i.e., fundamentalist "religious-right" types), the Bible is the "literal Word of God" and therefore cannot be wrong (even when it's self-contradictory).
There's a big difference between someone who doubts the big bang because they evidence isn't conclusive and it's just the best hypothesis we have right now and someone who doubts the big bang because an 1700 year old book says a sky man created the earth in 7 days.
Clearly, the survey used the wrong terminology. It should have asked something like "do you disbelieve (or maybe, "reject") these theories?"
What if the UI is REALLY BIG and controls can't all exist at the same time?'
your UI is too complex
So every app with more than one window (or mode) is too complex?
This is Slashdot. There is no schema (even in Beta)!
That's like saying O(n log n) is not greater than O(n). While it may technically be true, the reason we care is that it's also much less than O(n).
I'm not sure what you mean. I was just working with what those upthread had written (an analogy where IT worker productivity was being compared to algorithmic complexity).
In the article (by the economist, which is usually pretty decent) it compares how currently the higher you go in the income scale, the more you work.
To a point, that is. The article talks a lot about college-educated knowledge workers (i.e., the upper-middle class), but it conspicuously fails to mention how many hours C-level executives etc. (i.e., the actual "rich") work.
This strikes me as a case of "this new generation sucks a lot" which we roll through every 20 years or so. The WW2 generation said the same thing about the Boomers...
In that particular case, they were right!
Linear time should be expected (if it takes longer per ticket when there are more, thats bad, but non-polynomial, thats just horrid)
Log(time) is neither polynomial nor horrid (and also achievable by a really good IT person, since frequent similar problems should start getting solved more efficiently or permanently).
If you don't like Comcast, switch to satellite or cut the cord and use the internet.
I did "cut the cord," so now I complain about Comcast's rates on Internet service. There is no alternative (I live in an older neighborhood with shitty copper, just far enough from the Wi-Max towers to fail to get a signal).
But you as an investor will never get rich that way. People want to buy into something like Google, Apple, Amazon, whatever (remember the Netscape IPO?) - that starts out at $30 a share and zooms to $300 a share. The only way that happens is if your company grows! So while never growing is fine, it only appeals to a limited set of investors. Most investors want to buy a stock that will go up in value over time.
And of course, the real issue here is that it's completely and utterly inappropriate for a regulated utility to be that kind of "growth company!"
I would fall asleep behind the wheel during my 5 minute commute
If your commute is 5 minutes by car, then you need to fucking walk (or maybe ride a bike) instead!
this kind of shit has been encroaching on us
