I'm not a programmer. Lately I started reading through http://learnyouahaskell.com/. I haven't gotten very far yet. My only purpose was to get a handle on the syntax in my xmonad configuration file. I had no idea it could be used to make money.
That's exactly why we must destroy what's left of the unions. As usual they're the last thing standing in the way of a fascist state.
Hey didja ever think what if we were actually living in a holodeck and didn't know it?
Woww! You're totally blowin' my mind, man.
Mostly the propaganda comes from the private sector rather than our government. For example, health insurance companies have Americans (or at least the stupid ones) convinced that a national health care system, or single-payer will result in substandard care and long waiting lines. My friends in Canada think we're chumps.
The FreeBSD Handbook and forums are awesome. I use FreeBSD on my laptop, but also have Arch Linux running in a VM. Arch Linux is also incredibly well documented. On the Linux side of things, the fragmentation means that what you learn for one distro may not apply well to another. To the OP I'd advise, just focus on the documentation that applies to the distro that you're running. If it's not good or it's out of date, then choose a different distro.
Baghdad Bob, is that you?
I notice the patent application is with US authorities instead of the Europe. Perhaps EU patent authorities saw right through the argument for originality like
My usual environment is XFCE with Xmonad in place of XFWM. For more on how to do that http://www.haskell.org/haskell....
I tried using other tiling WM's, Awesome, i3, but none work as well for me as Xmonad though Spectrwm was really close.
"The shortcomings of US public education is a joint effort of teachers, unions, government administrators, and politicians."
So what about the parents? Teachers aren't being given much to work with since people with 3 digit IQ's decided they don't want to reproduce anymore. They're getting blamed for failing to teach chimpanzees to do trigonometry.
But them's fereign skools. Here in amurika we gots BS.
I learned to weld, do electrical work, air conditioning and refrigeration repair, boiler operations, etc. through an apprenticeship. It's a good deal. You get paid to learn. There's a catch though. You've got to join a union. No knowledgeable journeyman is going to train you if you're someplace where seniority doesn't count.
These days I've moved on to being a licensed professional engineer. Working my way through college on union wages, I graduated without owing any student loans.
Imagine that your a high school or junior high school biology teacher. Several times a day you are in a classroom in a rural southern state with an audience of 20 to 30 students. You know that more than half of the students in your class have been told by their parents and their pastors, that when the subject of evolution comes up, they should just tune out. Many of you keep saying that there's no controversy and nothing to gain by teaching the controversy. Well, for this class room full of skeptical students there's a lot of controversy. I guarantee you won't break through to them by ignoring it.
The purpose of the bill and the reporting being done on it from GOPNews is to frame policy debate within the myth that what the EPA is doing isn't ALREADY TRANSPARENT. At least it's sufficiently transparent to those who understand the science. It will always be opaque to those who are ill-informed about science. I've been researching proposed regulations in drinking water. An enormous volume of scientific documentation regarding the studies and methods that are being used were freely available at http://epa.gov./ Schedules for periods of public comment and dissenting opinion documentation are posted there also. So how much more do they have to do to be transparent in the eyes of clueless people.
The post says "we're a community", but otherwise uses the words "we", "you", and "the audience" in a way that indicates the author doesn't really believe it. When he says Classic Slashdot will be available until "we're" confident
Yeah, I've been on Slashdot for awhile too. But I won't be back anymore when the classic site becomes unavailable. Since the community is the actual product here, let's just fork it and we'll all go somewhere else. Maybe we can't call it Slashdot, but who cares? Let's just start a new site for all the old Slashdot members with the classic look.
