There are TV's and Amps that will do that adjustment for you (check for a button marked "loudness"). No need to unreversably process the input signal when your equipment could do it for you.
The Unix philosophy would help with the file dialogs. They should be a separate executable, at least for simple ones that are in a floating window. Then all the toolkits could share them. More importantly people could write new and better file dialogs. Also the common one could share a daemon that kept track of preview icons, etc.
FLTK was tiny, but more than 50% of the code was for the file chooser dialog.
No you cannot use toStdString and fromStdString as they do not use UTF-8 but attempt to use the "locale". Also even if you set it to UTF-8 the throw exceptions on invalid encodings, making them impossible to use safely (since the exceptions are rare enough that code is not written to handle them).
Interesting. That does sound like a bug (verses a design decision, it is usually clear which is which in Blender even though for most people the end result is no different). I always use the button on a pen to be the middle mouse button, the inability to do this in some software like Maya I find annoying.
Another bug is that it is impossible to do some actions in the timeline when left button is set to select.
Changing the left button to select does not change what the middle mouse button does. I have used Blender in this arrangement and have no problem.
IMHO the few remaining 3D programs that do not use middle mouse button for rotating the viewport are broken. All 2D software, and all non-professional 3D viewing software, use the middle mouse button for panning/tumble. Blender works correctly here and it is the big Maya/etc that have the user-unfriendly setting.
That does not excuse some other Blender problems with their UI, however.
Yes as of last April only:
"In April 2013, Microsoft released an open source JPEG XR library under the BSD licence.
To keep everything organized, I recommend that all posts mentioning going at night be arranged under this one.
I believe everything below the break point will fall to the ground and also in a path that wraps around the earth. Everything above will go up and stop at a new higher equilibrium point, still straight and under tension.
As opposed to other pollution, I would think this has the nice advantage that it is in the drilling companies interest to reduce it (since what they are leaking is the product they want to sell!). It is true that they will not naturally stop leaks where the cost of stopping the leak is greater than the savings in product, but it sure sounds like a mild bit of regulation can fix this (and the company does get any methane they save, thus offsetting some of the cost of the regulation). In any case this sure seems like it is not something inheriently wrong or unsolvable with natural gas.
Google can use the term "bingled!" in their ads maybe
Double-click on SHA numbers seems to work fine for me, I use it all the time.
Bitcoin plunged more than 8 percent today after a Tokyo-based exchange halted withdrawals of the digital currency, citing technical malfunction.
Mt. Gox, claimed in a blog post it needed to “temporarily pause on all withdrawal requests to obtain a clear technical view of the currency processes.” It promised an “update” — not a reopening — on Monday, Feb. 10, Japan time.
This is day after Russia's Prosecutor General concluded Bitcoin and other digital currencies are illegal under current law."

I have not managed to get off the front page to see what is wrong with the comments. There are enough problems there which the parent mentions. Others:
1. On my Nexus 5 (a pretty standard Android) the images are all distorted to a rectangle about 20x taller than it is wide!
2. It is hugely annoying that the text is cut off with "Read More". Please show the entire lead text like Slashdot does now.
3. Yes please: if the photo is a stock photo, make it really tiny! A large photo is good if it is actually new and unique to *that story*. Never ever repeat a large photo.
4. All kinds of annoyances with the text being faint, large line spacing, and not extending all the way across the page.
Surely this is based on some Linux simulation of OS/X, can anybody identify it?
I find it hard to believe NK took KDE and modified it themselves to look like OS/X, rather than basing it on work already done.
I heard MyCleanPC will remove Slashdot beta!
