I was hoping that it was this guy.
How long until municipalities have a mandatory yellow box?
First Contact made up for Generations and gave headroom for Insurrection and Nemesis, but all they did was run the series into the ground. They did such a poor job, I think there really was no other choice but to restart the series. "Star Trek" should have started with a lengthy apology.
It wasn't horrible. Which is more than the other three achieved.
Because, clearly, the loyal fan base really wanted a thinly-veiled remake of WoK to make up for the four TNG films.
Considering it's open source, it's not terribly difficult to verify the veracity of the article.
Can it form complex machines? guns and explosives that have chemicals and moving parts -- or is it limited to forming solid metal shapes like knives and stabbing weapons?
The statement is also demonstrably untrue.
You can create a shallow clone of a git repository. There are some limitations, but if you're just interested in the latest and greatest, and are fine with some non-obvious restrictions, you are not obligated to download the entire repository.
I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.
4 out of 3 people struggle with math;-)
9 out of 10 statisticians cannot count to 10.
But you're the one reading into it.
At face value, the statement clearly implies that young, married, males with children are somehow more valuable. His argument talks about going home to rest, not how skilled they are.
Disclosure: I'm a straight, single, over 30 (old) male without children (or the desire to procreate).
don't fill your engineering department with young, single, childless males (aka brogrammers).
Leave the bigotry at home, please. this isn't the 1920s and not all of us subscribe to certain puritan notions of "family".
I would otherwise agree with the idea that "going home" to rest is better than "resting at work" (because as long as you are accessible by work, you are not fully resting and free from it).
I much prefer Godwin's law. After all, Hitler supported the GPL.
I actually like the start screen:
- pressing [START] brings it up, I can start typing, and it filters like the start menu of old
- when filtering, the categories always appear in the same place
- meta options are big and appear in the same place (makes a difference at 2560x1440 with standard DPI)
- It doesn't overlap or clutter the desktop -- I press [START] and see a new screen with bigger options that are easier to navigate
- to me, the general windows desktop theme (flat, pastel, simple) is a huge improvement (reminds me of 3.x a little in that regard)
- It's not intuitive or obvious, I guess, that the [START] search functionality exists at all
- It's not obvious how to do meta actions (open with, for example)
- at first blush, if you make it to the desktop, it's not obvious how you get back to the start screen
- the hidden menus are obnoxious if you're trying to remember where they are hidden
- the "docked" apps or whatever, where the fullscreen app can take a portion of the screen, are worthless
- the hand icon, used to "discard/close" apps, is kind of weird on the desktop (I can discard my desktop? lol).
I dunno. Overall I am indifferent. I actually applaud Microsoft for giving something a go, I just hope that they keep working on it to make it more intuitive and less "post-pc"-ish (which is pretty insulting when I'm running it on a PC). I don't really use the tiles, and I'm on the desktop 99% of the time... so. Yeah. From a ui perspective alone, I don't really find it that abrasive.
Software outliving it's hardware... sigh.
There's something innately human about that which strikes me as... odd.
