My understanding is that the governments in Beijing and Taipei agree that there is only one China, which includes the territory effectively governed by Beijing and the territory effectively governed by Taipei. The point of disagreement is which of them is the lawful government of the whole thing.

If your job is to process a formally defined struct, you are not going to review the struct in an attempt to change the standard.

The developer who wrote this code also wrote the spec, as part of his PhD research. To me the more worrying aspect of this whole affair is that OpenSSL accepted into the trunk an extension which at the time hadn't even reached "Proposed standard" status (and still doesn't seem to have progressed beyond it).

Should be possible to do it with range requests, surely? But it's a chicken-and-egg problem, because there's no point adding the overhead of testing whether the server supports ranges until PJPEG is more widespread, and the current status quo doesn't seem to motivate many people to use PJPEG.

Interesting. Which airlines do you fly with? I mainly fly Ryanair or EasyJet, and they don't assign seats unless you pay. (I'm not sure, but I half suspect it's a ploy to make people get to the gate early so that they can be at the front of the queue). It's a while since I flew Air Nostrum, so I can't remember how they do it.
