Submission + - Google Search Categorising Every Site as Harmful!

nachmore writes: "Looks like even Google aren't immune to very large bugs in their core offerings — Google Search is marking all sites returned by any random search as "Harmful" — even their own pages! Clicking through to a result displays the scary warning page, while attempting to view further details results in a "temporary server error". Could further errors like this drive consumers away to alternative search engines?"

Submission + - Microsoft getting Google to promote live.com

nachmore writes: "Microsoft Australia is trying a new angle to introduce (and convert) more users to it's Live search — searching for "footy tips" in Google brings up a Sponsored Link to Microsoft's live.com! Not only that, but when you follow the link, MS Live displays a message wondering why you even thought to use your original search engine! Screenshots and a little more info here."

Submission + - Windows Turns 21

nachmore writes: "Microsoft Windows turned 21 two days ago and what better way to mark the occasion than with 21 Questions about Windows, Microsoft and Bill Gates. From the article:
7. Windows crashes an estimated 25m times a day.
Happy Birthday Microsoft, here's to the next 191,825,000,000 crashes!"

Submission + - Atlantis Launched Successfully

nachmore writes: "
NASA is reporting that Atlantis is "in good shape" after it's successful launch today. ABC News reports that the launch was a "majestic" one, which is appropriate considering that this really was it's last chance at launch. You will all recall that the ship suffered several delays on it's launch towards a construction mission at the ISS.
Good luck boys (and girl)!

Programming

Submission + - What is the Ulitmate Linux Dev Environment?

nachmore writes: "I've been programming on linux for a while now, always content to use vi for my editing and any debugger tools out there (gdb for C, C++ etc.). As part of my SoC project I was working on Thunderbird which was my first huge project on linux and I found that although shell-based tools can do the job, they lack in easy project managment, ease of debugging etc. I've only ever programmed with a GUI on Windows — and I have to admit that I find Dev Studio to be one of the few programs that Microsoft seems to have gotten (nearly) right. I've played around with eclipse but find it's C/C++ support still lacking.

So what GUIs would you recommend for linux? I would like something with debugging (step through etc.) support, CVS access and of course, support for large projects (e.g. Mozilla) and especially good support for C/C++. Is there anything really good out there, or is vi the way to go?"

Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
