In Post Freedom Amerika, cell phone butt dials you?
But if you put the numbers in units that people can relate to, it becomes something they can comprehend and make educated decisions.
The origin of the 5th Amendment is not limited to self incrimination, but to extend to the right to be free in thought. It requires that due process be followed.
Courts, when abused, can be used to try people merely on whim. In the old days courts would be abused to go after people of power who were contradictory in opinion to the majority.
In retrospect, the Japanese Internment was a clear violation of the 5th Amendment
If you need example of how it benefits society now, consider that people are able to be express their 1st Amendment without being locked up for it. If you need more than that, you can go find a Constitutional Lawyer and argue with them.
Methinks you are trolling with your absurd parameters, and verbose diatribe. If you are willing to write that much, maybe you should research and read the equivalent amount.
I assume it is just a shell on top of their existing code base, and not a "strip the crap of dead code out".
My point being its a patch, or worse a kludge.
How many security holes and bugs will this create, and how many will it leave behind for Win 9 development team to fix later?
Something my boss has us do when we estimating projects. She has a certainty factor that we set for each task, simple terms, which equate to a percentage in her calculations. The higher our certainty, the less risk that the task is underestimated. The lower the certainty, the larger the margin that the estimate needs to be factored.
Makes a huge difference in ballparking our estimates.
Its not just about making it look like XP, but running Winblowz stupid app type things.
For non-techie people, teaching them how to do this takes more time than he has stated.
Good lord, in this day and age, she is still running XP?
While you are trying to save yourself time by not having to train her, you are making it worse on yourself, because you are going to have to enjoy support hell / frustration mode.
Get her a new PC, and teach her. There isn't that much to teach, especially if you automate most everything and hide IE.
I upgraded my dad from XP to Win 7 last year. Didn't take him long to keep doing what he normally does. Well worth the headaches I've had doing XP support for it
Teaching someone who "just wants it to work" a new OS is going to be more maddening than anything.
Preconfigure the laptop. Enable remote admin / support stuff, so that you can do it from wherever. It is amazing what you can do with remote teaching.
I had to remotely help troubleshoot something for my mom, I just used the webcam to show her what to push on the keyboard, problem solved. Video goes a long way for basic stuff.
Government projects = lowest bidder
Lowest bidder > we don't need no stinkin security
Doesn't everyone use AdBlock?
I don't care that they scan my email. If I wanted privacy, I'd revert back to pen and paper and manually deliver my precious content to someone else. The paper would combust within a few minutes of opening.
I don't doubt we could do more with solar power. I'm not defending Fox, cause some of the comments from them is so asinine that it can't possibly be fact based.
But how much of that land is actually something that can be used for solar collection.
I live in Alaska. The reason we don't have more cities is because well there are these things called mountains. And where there aren't mountains, is a lot of swamp, err wetlands.
And then on top of it, throw in a good portion of the state goes dark during winter.
I have no experience with Germany, so I really don't know if it is apples to apples comparison.
That's a load of crock. You can get any Joe Blows off the street to "vouch" for a guy.
I'll believe it when it is well past prototype and challenged by people and not lab results.
But the reality is it WILL NOT alter the delays in traveling. TSA will still do instrusive checks, will still have Xrays etc. You still have to be treated like cattle for this false sense of security.
Seriously, there are wonderful things like vacuum seals.
Hiding your paid support line won't help. People publish everything. They will find it sooner or later, and then its back to open season.
If you have some sort of interactive voice response system, you can add a message that all support calls cost money. Include information that because the software is available free, paid support is the revenue stream.
The simple reality is a$$holes and cheapskates make more stink and ruckus than your happy to pay customers. They will complain and tell more of their friends than your happy customers will. The only way to stay on top of it, is to make the paid support attractive, thereby making their arguments idiotic, and get your customer's to fill out responses to show how happy they are.
If you want to belittle them, not always a good idea, have someone else not associated with the company, make wonderful insights into the stupidity of the cheapskates.
