I'm used to it now. Especially with people who have good analytical skills. They really pay attention to details and I can get quite lazy with my speech/writing.
I've stopped using nbcnews.com because they went to this big box look. Then my primary source for local news in my home town switched around and now not only is it impossible to find stuff or read much information, almost all articles go to an autoplay video about the story. I have to wait for it to load and then pause it before I can start reading the article.
I'm pretty much down to the bbc site for news.
His main idea was that the OS has no business deleting any data generated by the application, that data is mine and uninstalling should only remove the program itself and let me take care of the rest.
and a problem always comes up if you are with them long enough.
This is good to know. I removed all mine because I kept looking over at them.
I don't know how it works for people but slashboxes are a big part of what has let me use slashdot as my hub. I can look over and see all the latest from ars, boing boing, etc - without having to go there except for the stuff that I find interesting. They are a big part of the reason that I come here multiple times a day rather than just when I want to post a JE. The front page is also mildly interesting but I can keep tabs on that easily from Facebook.
And this is why I do so poorly in quizup. I'm number 5 in Hungary for English grammar but well, that's just not saying a whole lot.
Picked up my new 13" Retina Macbook Pro ( not the same as a plane Macbook Pro - these guys are so good at marketing.) I've been using it for two weeks. I'm learning.
My favorite surprise was when I opened up the terminal app and started trying out commands. Everything was working so I went to see what environment I was in and saw that it was bash. This made me very happy.
I think on the gui end it is o.k. I prefer but I'm getting use to the way OS X wants me to d
It was mildly humorous until I read "reject the report and blame" then I did burst out laughing. You just can't make this stuff up.
This is all about what I used last - https://slashdot.org/~stoolpig...
I hope you are right - I just want to keep my options open. I'd much rather just keep doing my thing here.
Writing journals is not set up in the beta. If I go to my profile - there are links for comments, submissions and journals - so maybe they plan to implement it.
But I'm just not sure of the future of the overall platform. These changes make me wonder if the days for the site are numbered. I'm backing up all my journal entries so I don't lose any and then making sure I have a place to go if things come apart.
I see a bunch of journal entries under your account. If you go to https://slashdot.org/journal.p... but put in your user id instead of mine you should get a list of your entries. I do think there is a limit on how many will show up (or how far it will let you look back) if you don't have a subscription. With a subscription you can go back through them all.
The fact that slashboxes have stopped working and I didn't see links for writing journals in the beta has me thinking that the site will move away from the level of personalization that it had before. So I'm thinking through what I'll do as a replacement. The idea I keep coming back to is I may go ahead and use a subreddit as my new journal. It would be a place I could post - people could follow it and respond if they were interested. It's possible to set one up so that people can read and co
