is this not the same thing as using "guilds" in permaculture?
clowns please pipe down.
this seems a simple error to actually fix, so why is everybody fapping off about this thing, and not fixing it?
or did i miss the patch?
i'm actually hoping for a reply here, sorry if i missed the meeting, otherwise will be applying my own patch, very quickly.
i rely on bash and it's isms, it's a good thing, and ought to be more of a standard.
has anyone an opinion how canada is showing in this matter? last time i looked we came dead last, behind the benighted states even, and as far as i know we are currently not co-operating at all. i've been watching for mention of canada in the "international" media (slashdot foremost of these) and so far have seen nothing, except we may have managed to kill off rob ford, at last. is anyone able to correct this impression?
put down the remote, back away from the TV, kessler, you sound just like the dumb bulb you no doubt are.
god bless america.
nobody else will.
this would appear to mean that apple users, up to now, have not been "interesting" to the U/NSA...
generally it has been my impression that most of the original bbc documentary work has been quite reasonable...
to the contrary, although it's subtle, the same documentaries as reworked by discovery (tm), history (tm), etc, on this side of the "pond" are somehow not quite as satisfying..
anyone else have a similar impression?
i admit i've not wasted much time on the american feeds, am really only commenting based on the bits i've had to watch on other people's screens.
if it's that easy to bypass throttling, then have at it, i say - the more the better.
there has to come a point when derision and cronies will be forced to admit they have been raping yet another dead horse.
when dealing with bullies it pays to be light on your feet, i find.
quote[ A stingray is a controversial electronic surveillance device for remotely capturing data from mobile telephones. It is designed to mimic a cell tower so all the mobile phones in the area communicate with it and provide information, including location data. This can be done even when the phone is not being used to make a call. Critics have called the use of the devices by government agencies warrantless cell phone tracking, as they have frequently been used without informing the court system or obtaining a warrant. The Electronic Frontier Foundation has called the devices “an unconstitutional, all-you-can-eat data buffet.” A stingray can be carried by hand or mounted on a vehicle, such as an unmanned aerial vehicle. The devices are also referred to as “cell site simulators” and “IMSI catchers.” ]

you seem to have missed my point - C is excellent for abstraction if you have taken the time - as i have - to build your own library of such.
these are skilled hands - read the article - the man is a C professional already, looking for alternatives.
what happens if everbody follows your advice?
who will maintain the C code that *inevitably* lies beneath all "higher" level languages?
i realise i'm soapboxing here, but as one on whom the burden of that maintenance has fallen, and surrounded as i am by script kids who take garbage collection for granted, eat memory like it was candy, and stuff buffers as if they were infinite, i am more than a little afraid of what the future will bring.
there is no such thing as a free lunch, and this includes the highler level coding languages - robert a heinlein (not necessarily the heinlein)
sorry, is the air i breathe, forgot the microsofties might not know about it.
agree - sites like this make ikea crap more desireable, not less.
i spent most of my working career in C, and as advised by my early mentors, over the decades, i have build, and have continued to hone my own little collection of useful functions.
i have learned interpreted languages, bash scripts, also postscript and forth along the way, various others...
in the end what remains best is C code, and my own little legacy collection of solutions to the problems i have encountered.
to answer your heads as best as i can:
archaic - C is not - underneath every "other" language you will almost always find C source and a C compiler.
text based - think AJAX if you want instant and easy access to gooey bling stuff. these days almost everything that can do GUI can also do an RPC text based interface of some form or another, and if you don't want the fuss off rolling your own interface, there are plenty of stock C libs out there will do this for you.
not a hotshot - you know C, you are not only hot, you are a rare breed, and an essential part of the future - as i said above, C lies beneath just about everything out there, and large parts of the Original Framework is now inscrutable to the script kids, despite their whole world would collapse, if there were no-one left to maintain it.
update your coding skills - in short please stick with C as much as you can, and think about building bridges - in my opinion your time would be best spent studying the C and text interfaces exported by other languages, and working out for yourself how best to leverage their abilities from within C - as opposed to jumping ships.
help out - get yourself a git account, share your work, if you can.
in all of these except the last i speak from 30 years experience, and in regard to the last - i'm working on it - most of my stuff is still bound in commercial licence, however i continue to hope this will change, eventually, and i continue to prepare for that day.
under a different protocol?
they are a burden on us all, and in my opinion should be lined up against a waill and pissed upon, until cured or dead.
