Anybody else remember this game? Sounds alot like it.
Check out http://www.theregister.co.uk/2... (scroll down to oldnewthing). It's a parody of the Old New Thing blog but it's really truth in fiction and illustrates why Windows APIs are so difficult to call and probably why developer tend to take shortcuts.
If you want to keep track of what gets installed where check out Install Monitor (www.mirekusoft.com). It's designed to solve that exact problem.
It will be easier in the US to get the 50 white people needed for the cure (http://www.theonion.com/articles/experts-ebola-vaccine-at-least-50-white-people-awa,36580/)
Does anyone else see the irony in riding 500 buses to NYC from all over the country if they're really concerned about climate change?
I generally avoid driver updates unless I know there is a specific problem I am experiencing that is fixed. Got burned too many times.
General intelligence. That's a loaded term. There is no one thing but several things that indicate intelligence. You definitely can't program general intelligence if you can't define it exactly.

I think the best manager realize the best way to manage is by empowering their workers to get their job done and removing any obstacles in the way.

Computers are essentially big calculators. The CPU instruction sets consists essentially of math operations, branch control, and input/output.

Not only that MS made the same mistake in reverse with Windows CE when they tried to force the desktop interface on the phone.
One of the things I love about programming is the moment you have to remind yourself that your program is simply executing algorithms that you told it. Depending on how clever the algorithms are it can appear as if the computer is thinking for itself. Programming allows you to encode intelligence in non-thinking machines.
you can apply QUERTY techniques.
