You mean: Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity. - Hanlon's Razor
I used to explain computers in terms of an office workspace. Your desktop (memory) is the display of what you are currently working on, if you want to write a letter, you get your typewriter (application) out of your drawer (storage). Your desktop can only hold so many things at one time, so sometimes you need to put something away before you can access then next thing. Some application need more room than others - say a drawing application might need more space. At the end of the day when you switch off the computer, the desktop is wiped clear, but what ever is in your drawer is available to be used again. If you want to be able to use something again you need to make sure you save a copy to the drawer.
I've yet to find someone who can't be made to understand basic principles on how a computer operates conceptually by that metaphor.
It's an absolute and indisputable fact that Google Glass does not have a recording light. It's not a matter of opinion.
And yet everyone I've run into with Google Glass I could tell if they were recording or not, bright light or not you can plainly see when they're recording. It's not a matter of opinion it's an absolute nad indisputable fact that you can in fact tell when someone with Google Glass is recording with just a casual glance. A secondary way of telling if someone with Google Glass is constantly recording is they'll never be wearing their glass. The batteries die quick in those things.
not at all. you would plug your router that is compatible with this system into your cable modem and into a seperate port for the building network or whatever and the software defined network would route all of your vlan traffic back to your own router for it to travel out your cable modem, any traffic going to your router but for a different vlan would hit the building network and go to whoevers home router it was for.
Personally, when on one of my "Leggings are not pants" rants, I wouldn't think it would be that much of a stretch to say that some people are walking around partially nude. Recently I've been seeing french knickers as shorts as a trend on younger women (late teens, early 20s, mostly east-asian). They're not pants either.
I know I wore a fair bit of lycra when I was their age, so I can't complain too much. It was the '80s though, so I have a bit of an excuse. Looks askance at Olivia Newton-John and Madonna.
IANAL but you could argue that we are all partially nude (I'm naked under my clothes) and the fact that I am wearing a skirt means I have an expectation that my privates will remain private.
Skirts make an assumption that nobody will have a line-of-sight view from directly beneath you -- an assumption that was never entirely valid, but is a whole lot less valid now that technology has given people access to discreet digital cameras that they can easily position at floor level.
In some respects it's like circumventing DRM - an effort was made to conceal (wearing a skirt), but someone deliberately positioned themselves in a abnormal position closer to the floor in order to create a line-of-sight that would not generally be available through normal activity.
and studies on the subject often glaze over the possible contributors to disease spread in the vaccinated population (going to work while infectious instead of staying home)
I don't understand - are you saying they ignore the risk of infection vectors or do you think that most people stay home immediately they become infectious - which is generally before they are symptomatic, somehow they just 'know'.
You seem to have missed the 'un' in the 'doubleplusungood'.
It was classic Newspeak
In addition, words with negative meanings are removed as redundant, so "bad" becomes "ungood". Words with comparative and superlative meanings are also simplified, so "better" becomes "plusgood", and "best" becomes "doubleplus good". Intensifiers can be added, so "great" became "plusgood", and "excellent" and "splendid" become "doubleplus good". This ambiguity between comparative/superlative forms and intensified forms is one of the few examples of ambiguity in Newspeak.
I live in Australia, you insensitive clod!
I can barely stream a 2 minute YouTube video without it stopping 5 times to buffer, let alone a 30 minute TV episode, god forbid an entire movie.
Usenet plus Sickbeard means we get stuff overnight or during our domestic off-peak hours (i.e. when we're at work), and watch it on stored media.
I weep for the neutering of the NBN.
Trying to read this broke my brain. If you have something of value to communicate, it's considered polite to do so in a manner that HELPS your audience, not one that makes them work harder to guess what you are trying to say.
TL:DR version - learn English.
Everytime I want to use the datedif function in Excel 2010 I have to google it because it's not listed as an available function in the Excel UI. It works perfectly fine if you follow the correct argument components, I just don't use it often enough to remember them. I"m sure there are plenty of other orphan functions in there too.
I'm posting from a work machine which is still running XP.
We have started upgrading to Win7, but we are finding that a number of our proprietary systems won't run under Win7 and have to be run under Citrix for the users that have been upgraded. This kinda defeats the purpose of upgrading as they have less functionality than they had before the upgrade.

Surely in that circumstance it should be considered a form of assault and jail time would be more appropriate.
