Other websites (which probably includes the ones that limit you to 8 characters) limit you to alphanumeric characters and the underscore. If you type in f4th@mst3rs as a password, it'll gag on your input and scream at you for using unsanctioned characters. It's like the security "expert" for the site thought that passwords had the same rules as C variable identifiers.
My money is on the military having spotted some Daleks in the building and not taking any chances. Silly, humans! A fighter jet won't get through their shields!
Bollocks! Nobody has ever seen, or heard of, this... this... Slashdot that you speak of! Therefore, nobody will post dumb comments because logic dictates that the one precede the other.
I stopped using Firefox in favor of Chrome, years ago, when I saw Chrome had bookmark syncing and incognito Windows. Firefox has, since, tried to replicate these behaviors only to be way off the mark. When I want access to my bookmarks it's because I'm
/not/ at my computer. Also, putting the entire browser into private mode, is not what I need, only a single window for when I'm browsing sites I'd rather not keep cache & history of. Now, Firefox continues to chase after Chrome like some weird kid brother.
Then there's this versioning issue. While there's no real standard to versions, there is sort of a convention that when the first number in the version changes it means you have either a complete rewrite of the source code or some fundamental change that makes the new version a very new piece of software compared to the old version. I refuse to believe that Firefox has been rewritten from the ground up 4 or 5 times this year.
At this point, I'll go back to IE before I'll start using Firefox again.
Pretty sure it's the latter. Later on in the article, it reads:
Beyond the half-million downloads, Rovio trotted out some other amazing Angry Birds metrics
We demand people fairly buy all of the apps on the App Store! Any app that is not bought fairly is being discriminated against!
There's no way they'll ever be able to compete commercially with Asgard technology.
Just wait... if you think that's offensive, just wait until some studio announces, ":-) LOL"
There is a similar law in Oregon. I can't quote it but the general idea is, if you can make the turn without crossing an active lane of traffic, you can make it. When turning onto a one-way, you are not crossing a lane. The lane coming your way from the direction you are turning from is not moving because their light is also red. Of course, that doesn't prevent a huge majority from turning into the far lane when turning a corner.
The age range is the same. Here in the good ol' US of A, such policies are common and were in place when I was in middle school 20 years ago. Of course, my first "sex ed" class was when I was in 5th grade (10-11 years old).
It's the school dress policy he violated. Nothing about the Friday Presentation Day includes a bundle of plastic and wires. Perhaps if he had included duct tape, it would have been alright.
Sorry, I'm in a public lab right now and exposing my LaGrange points might land me in jail. I'll try to check them when I get home.
Dual (or multi) boot is only useful to technicians who need to troubleshoot numerous environments. The typical user will never find rebooting more convenient than waiting a minute or two for Windows to boot.
I dunno... I think "flasghip" is properly emblematic of where Ubuntu stands.
Here's how it works: I accuse you, you take the fall, and we split the reward. You just have to sit in jail for whatever period of time. Of course, keep in mind that there will probably be hefty fines that will meet or exceed your portion of the reward.
