Oddly enough quite a bit of the design PowerShell was inspired by Perl.
Yes, this is the case, and it's very obvious if you look at popular NPM modules - there are lots of ports or variants of Ruby libraries. Plus there's CoffeeScript, which I'm told has a Ruby-esque feel, but can be trivially used interchangeably with JS.
Go to Settings and Phone Update is about halfway down - you can check for any missing updates to the OS there. I think you need to be on Wi-Fi or plugged into the PC to work though.
Also below that in Settings the About page should be able to tell you what versions you have for the OS, firmware etc. I'm currently on OS v8.10.12393.890
I have the same phone, and it sounds like it hasn't been updated to WP 8.1, which I think solves these issues. Or at least I don't have them on my phone.
It's a good summary of all the nonsense some people seem to believe. Once you take away the retractions, it's just more ranting about feminism and Anita Sarkeesian.
What the hell is wrong with the word "shutting"?
That's research from 130 years ago, and solely about rote memorisation. I'm talking about things such as this, and more general research into neuronal development.
Nope, it's actually heavily influenced by Perl of all things, one of the guys who created it has also written a book on PS which has various sidebars about the design of the language.
No, I think it's more that these people have always been here, but the last couple of years has seen a) the flourishing of the disgusting "Men's Rights" movement, b) more talk about sexism in the tech industry, which has lead to c) more articles about the subject here, and thus more arguments about it. In almost 15 years here I don't think the demographic has changed very much at all - there's a wider age range and it's more international, but fundamentally it's the same sort of audience. The site just has more articles on topics where this sort of thing comes up.
The rampant sexism seen in a lot of these articles is pretty depressing though.
Well put, I do seem to have noticed a sort of creeping Calvinism in the way that victims of all kinds of types are labelled today.
Thankfully, the new let keyword for declaring lexically scoped variables will sound the death of the IIFE construct, although in practice you learn to avoid it.
I don't run Linux, and I've never had to deal with X, so this isn't an emotive issue for me. But your post was clearly not a serious of facts, more of a backlash against perceived slights from Wayland developers and/or "fanboys", the latter being a useful way to smear people who disagree.
Your post might make more sense if the existence of Wayland meant that X no longer existed, but as that's clearly not true it's hard to take claims of "throwing out a perfectly good system in favour of an ideological rewrite" seriously. And ideology? There have been plenty of technical arguments since the beginning, here's one set that was posted on
As far as I'm aware X currently does act like VNC in most cases, except without any compression at all and a synchronous API - so nobody uses it directly because of the performance issues, instead using ssh as a tunnel. Even having it act like per-window VNC with H.264 compression would be an advantage. But anyway, that's all part of the compositor, which now has RDP as part of the core, and I've yet to see any explanation of why or how X forwarding is different or better than rootless RDP.
The assumption that forwarding is a critical feature is based on the idea that your personal requirements are the only important ones. If a piece of software doesn't do what you want, don't use it. As it turns out, they are supporting it (as I'd read from pretty much day one), it's just taken time to get to that point... as you'd expect from alpha software.
Thanks, that has explained that the "frecency error blah blah" messages I'm seeing in my console aren't just someone's epic fail at committing a spelling mistake
You might be interested in this podcast if I'm reading your post right... they talk quite a bit about using js-git to mount GitHub repositories as file systems, so that you can mount a repository, copy files into it and then run a commit and have the stuff you've copied automagically pushed to GitHub.
It's certainly interesting stuff even if possibly overkill
