I never use Control-A in its normal form. In fact, it really upsets me that it's not always "go to beginning of line."
Slashdot has taken down plenty of websites written in a wide variety of languages.
All you have to do is change the Bing, or Yahoo, or whatever logo on the search bar to Google. If you'd rather switch browsers than do that, then you're an idiot.
You can't legally give a computer with Windows installed away to a charity. I know, stupid.
A lot of charities that are set up to accept computers are just going to install whatever OS they're being given (Microsoft basically gives away Windows licenses).
It's worth noting that the University of Pennsylvania is making the societal implication of games this year's "academic theme." The summer reading book for freshmen is Jane McGonigal's "Reality is Broken." This is something that they, as a university, are paying a lot of attention to, not just a buzzword to them.
12000 square miles is about the area of Maryland.
Who gave these guys who have only been around for a few short years $112 million? Who valued a startup at $1 billion?
Don't these people know that they're going to lose their money? The popularity of any of these services is incredibly ephemeral.One thing goes wrong and no one ever forgets.
Subversion is so annoying to use that it boggles my mind. You have to be incredibly deliberate in your workflow or you're screwed.
Intermediate stages before pushing to a server are a boon for the clumsy and hasty like me. I often instinctively run the last command when I want to test a program, and sometimes it's not `python x.py`, but `svn ci -m "blah blah blah"`. In Git, as with many other DVCSs, local commits (and the ability to change commits after the fact) ameliorate this issue. Also, the ability to be able to work and snapshot your progress as you go even while offline is incredibly useful.
There's also a lot more about svn that can be annoying. For instance, the output of `svn log` is not paged by default, so all you get is a massive info dump with absolutely nothing usable because your terminal can only hold so much output history. This is especially frustrating over ssh.
Basically, while svn is definitely my favorite client-server VCS, it still has a lot of problems and is far less safe and simple than Git or another DVCS.
Most web applications and libraries are "small code repositories", so Git works admirably for those.
Out of curiosity, what handles such a huge codebase so well?
The numbers don't mean that Facebook is necessarily hated in absolute terms, but that _relatively_ speaking Facebook is the _most_ hated.
I don't see how this is any different than any other live CD though.
I don't think it really is any different. It's just now an approved solution for DOD personnel.
By not mounting the hard disk, fewer traces are left.
Idk what I was on when I said that. They destroyed evidence in the murder investigation for a young girl.
I don't really consider this to be "ethically wrong". They hacked their site. These people killed a girl (and perhaps a whistleblower as well).
I'm incline to say it's some kind of assembly because of the ALL CAPS and line comments starting with a
Seriously, it's like an unsecured AP with more consumer confidence. It takes 15 mins. at most on decent hardware to crack WEP.
The sad thing is that most ISPs don't make WPA readily available to their customers.
