Just recently had to edit the Host file. (Local DNS file). Could not save it because of UAC, and didn't get a UAC prompt either, had to give up and disable UAC first.
No need to do that. Right click on the editor program of choice and choose Run As Administrator. You can now edit (and save!) your hosts file.
If this is something you do often you can create a shortcut (click Advanced on the Shortcut tab to set run as admin).

I'm not sure how you get from "a lot of things that resemble SVG" to "trivial for MS to support". Just because the output has similar features doesn't mean the back-end is anything alike.
Except that you can take SVG data, change the formatting slightly (e.g. with a Perl script), feed it into XamlPad and get your vector output displayed. I'd say that was fairly trivial.
I once believed in creationism, but slowly, over time, I changed.
It's time we stopped referring to them as creationist and start calling them what they really are: evolution deniers.
Congratulations on your enlightenment by the way. It takes an open mind to weigh the evidence and change your point of view. You are to be commended.
... the developer is finished
Next time they might want to consider putting two developers on the project.
Those of us who are trained on the latest technology are having a hard time finding jobs. I suspect that the few job openings out there are swamped with resumes. It's hard to get noticed in a sea of thousands.
So, while it might be great to increase the education level of the general populace, I hope they don't expect to automatically get a job with their new skills.
No. That would be something totally different and unrelated (other than both being XML based).
