Two out of five, not always the same two.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Makes me wonder; would it be possible to set up a root account that requires two different passwords (the number of humans required to be present in the room) out of a set of five allowed passwords (the number of humans that were allowed to enter the room).
Wait until a few more moderations come in.
You're judging an entire community by the actions of a few individuals.
Right now GP is at "+5 Informative".
In my own experience, there seems to be a general "lifecycle" to comment moderations.
The more controversial their subject matter, the more pronounced this seems to be.
1. Random votes. (i.e. -1's and +1's mixed, "average" jumps all over the place).
2. Going up to +5.
3. Back to +4 (only if really controversial and may take a few days).
Few serious comment seem to end up negative, regardless of whether people agree or disagree.
Ignoring GOTO (just remove it from the language), what fundamentally bad habits does BASIC teach?
What kind of IDE/environment are you using?
I think the biggest hurdle is not the language choice, but how to get things to run.
My first language was Logo. Couldn't do much with it, but it was fully interactive, which meant that you got immediate feedback as soon as you pressed Enter.
I've recently had to make a simple graphics language for my day job, including an interactive editor which ran the program (= redraw the image) on every change; feedback while you're typing. The language is quite strict and unforgiving, but if a similar language could be made friendlier, it could be a great kids' language.
Subtle things like...
- Not being so darn stubborn when a salesperson sells a 12 month project to be delivered in 3 months.
- Taking up leave days, even though running behind on schedule.
- No longer working late or taking work home.
- Generally being cheerful and somehow more "care free".
Laws apply to all, rules just apply to those who want to.
If you're good enough and they really want to have you, you'll be able to negotiate.
Disallowing foreign competition is what is distorting the playing field.
You mean like disallowing customers to import goods sold on foreign markets at lower prices? You know; import protection.
If companies are against protectionism, they shouldn't get benefits of protectionism either.
This is billionaire douchebags saying they could become even bigger billionaire douchebags is only they could bring in more foreign billionaire douchebags to replace American billionaire douchebags.
commercial libraries often come with legal indemnification clauses, which bring extra business value.
I know of NO software, whether it be libraries or applications, open source or closed source, that don't have a legal disclaimer in their license.
You're equating porn with advertising? Surely you are joking. One is filth-ridden trash, demeaning to women and men alike, imagined by sociopaths and enjoyable only to the sickest of perverts, the other is just people having fun in bed.
There is a difference between group projects, where each individual takes on a different part, which are then combined, and pairing, where two people work on exactly the same thing, at the same time, sitting next to each other.
It's not the amount of money, it's the sheer number of people he tried to extort.
That he asked so little money and still managed to fail most of the time is no excuse.
...and he blackmailed the people on the pictures.
It's still not rape, but it's quite a bit more evil than "just" posting private nude pictures without permission, which is pretty bad to begin with.
I wonder; was there ever such a thing as "Pair architecture" or "Pair mathematics"?
