I guess most people are just guessing their productivity. However I could look it up in FishEye, which tells me my number of commits per day and hour. Wednesday wins, as does 15:00h. Monday on the other hand is my least productive day.... But I do not really hate mondays...
Then they should just write how many Joules it was.
Is it really the size of a VW beetle? At Kennedy Space Center they have a mockup, which I think is accurately sized. Including a seat, in which you can sit. I didn't fit, because, I was too tall -- at 1.80m! That thing was tiny. Really tiny!
Do you also blow out candles on adult's birthday cakes and then sternly lecture them about how "That's just for kids"?
He's Vulcan. He blows out the candles because there was a fire hazard.

Look at it from the NSA/FBI's point of view: they already have backdoor access to your phone's data, so the fingerprint scanner isn't about keeping Them out, but about securing biometric data from users voluntarily. If They tried to fingerprint or retina-scan a whole nation Themselves (like our troops do to occupied Afganistan and before in Iraq) there would be resistance; we only got away with it in Afghanistan and Iraq because we were an armed, occupying force. At home, they'll start integrating biometric scanners into cheap, gaudy (GOLD!) baubles so the Sheeple fingerprint themselves instead.
Your government already has my fingerprints. Every time I travel to the US, I have to leave my fingerprint at the border controls in the airport. Several years back, it was just a thumb print. But last time I went, it was all ten fingerprints.
I wonder if humans would evolve further, maybe producing their own beta carotene or Vitamin A? I do not condone the suffering of millions of people, but I wonder if giving our bodies everything in plenty is good in the long run (like generations).
Also, can't this deficiency be solved with existing crops and/or vegetables? The rice looks nice, though...
I am using German Telekom for my mobile ISP. They cap after 300MB. Way, way too low. After that it's 64kbit/s!
My DSL ISP is ok. No caps, but the uplink is tiny. I've got 6 MBit downlink, but only 512kbit uplink. Terrible for uploading photos or other stuff.
I like this campaign. Objective C is continually in the Top 5 of the most widely used languages (http://www.tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html). It is a very nice, simple object oriented C dialect. It is used on OS X and iOS, the latter of which is installed on hundreds of millions of devices (http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/23/apple-over-500-million-ios-devices-sold/). Both operating systems heavily utilize Cocoa as their framework
Having better or even any Cocoa support on Linux would help to get developers to target both world. Linux on the one side, and iOS/OS X on the other side. I think this is well worth for all Linux users to chip in some money (even if it's only $1).
This, this, a thousand times this! "The Late Philip J. Fry" is my favorite Futurama episode. So witty and full of good jokes and quotable lines. ("Just slow it down, I'll shoot Hitler out the window.")
But I must concur, the quality of the episodes varies in the last two seasons. I hope there'll be new, excitong shows around the corner.
I go to work by bus, but I still have to work ~1km to and from the bus. Also you could take a bicycle to work. Many workplaces offer showers for bike commuters (ours does). Also I have a dog and have to walk her 3x a day, rain or shine. Thus I get to about 6km of walking each day. Helps a lot.
Please stop. You're suggesting that the brains from one country are somehow different from that of another country. If we change 'country' out for 'race', it should be painfully obvious what the problem here is.
Maybe the brains actually are different from country to country, depending on cultural and environmental influences. What you shouldn't suggest is that either brain would be better than another. Difference doesn't mean that actually something has to be better, just that it works differently, while maybe achieving the same goal.
Do you have a reference for the phoning home stuff? I am using Plex on the Mac and like it very much. However, if there were serious problems like unwantedly transmitting data, I'd really like to know.
I wish my boss would show the same concern for the quality of our software, and scream at the programmers that break it every day. Unfortunately it doesn't happen, and other programmers end up fixing the broken code (and quietly grumbling) because otherwise they would not be able to do their jobs.
Sometimes harsh words can send a message better than a general "please check your code before you commit".
There is a difference between being concerned for software quality and humiliating someone in front of colleagues. If my boss would punish a workmate (or me) like that, I would be looking for a different job rather quickly if this behaviour wouldn't change rather quickly.
