So what's this kid's punishment for doing a gun related school project?
It's stable and ready for every day use, as long as you don't need page breaks. I have a 3 page odt containing page breaks and WebODF just throws all of the text and images at the bottom of the first page.
How is this ready for every day use without supporting something as basic as page breaks? Page breaks go back to Word 1.beforeiwasborn
I understand why this works and I understand the need to sanitize user input, but this is dumb. Even if there are workarounds. It's obvious what the intent of "tar cf archive.tar *" is suppose to be, it shouldn't be treating file names as additional arguments. Anyone actively using this "feature" for anything legitimate is dumb too.
This seems very similar to the whole "we need some other language than C" argument. Sure, you *can* make secure code with zero overflow vulnerabilities, but damn near all software has them. You can only blame the user/coder for so long for doing something "wrong", but when 90%+ people are doing it "wrong" then you probably need to change how the thing works.
Universities feel the need to teach you much more than is required for your field (to be well rounded). I suppose I was saying many more classes depended on calc than stat, so calc in highschool would have helped more.
Several discrete math classes came in college and I do find parts of those useful, but I'm not sure they have a place at the high school level. Perhaps a class where you had to build/design turing machines would be interesting enough to be useful.
I'm a CS grad and I took AP Stat and AP CS in high school, and I'm currently working as a programmer. In relation to programming, stat is very nearly worthless. There are certainly things I learned in stat that I use every so often, but nothing in relation to a programming task. In my high school, I had to choose between AP stat and calc and calc would have helped a lot more in college. Granted, for my line of programming, calc doesn't help either, but it would have helped more in obtaining the degree.
Just more propaganda and doubt to bring into the mix
This is creating a market for even tinier violins. I can't seem to find one small enough.
I bought my house and went crazy upside down on it. I'm in the better part of nation for climate predictions. Looks like my property value is set to skyrocket once everyone else runs out of water/food.
Wouldn't it cost Hulu/Netflix more bandwidth to allow this (and therefore more money in infrastructure)? Many users are going to download movies and never watch them, causing them lost bandwidth and possibly lost ad revenue. With a streaming model if you decide you don't like the movie, you just stop streaming. If you had downloaded the movie, the bandwidth required to give you that part of the movie you didn't watch is "wasted".
Excepting noise, is there a reason you can't implement 802.11 and a new protocol at the same time? Similar to the 2.4 and 5Ghz dual band devices?
The same reason the little yellow street view guy wasn't in the new version either (he is now). They are releasing a rolling beta and using you to test their products.
Well, I have a solution to your "email has already been registered" issue. Gmail will treat email@example.com as the same address as firstname.lastname@example.org, both will go into the email@example.com account. Give the site an email address with a plus sign postfix like that and it should detect it as a new unique address. Some sites don't allow the plus symbol in email addresses (even though it's a valid character), so mileage may vary.
