Yeah, I don't understand how this is going to prevent anything. Or do people ONLY accept autocomplete results? When 'prescription drugs online' doesn't give you the option you want, then keep typing 'without a prescription' then hit return. OBVIOUSLY enough people already did that for it to be a top autocomplete suggestion.

Comment Re:SVN sucks on windows (Score 1) 378

Which on Windows happens a lot because every damn SVN client has enough bugs you need to use multiple tools to get work done.

My company has used SVN for the last 5 years, and I've used it personally a tad longer, on windows. Never had a DB corruption, nor heard of anyone having one. While I don't NEED to use multiple tools, I do sometimes, mainly for ease of use. Sometimes the GUI is better, sometimes just using the CLI is better.

Honestly, I wouldn't get too comfortable with a given IDE -- some of them (I'm looking at you, Visual Studio) abstract away and hide a lot of the code and it can make for some really confusing times for you. Just open up the raw .c or .cpp files with whatever is comfortable...

I don't know what you think an IDE does, but any good IDE pretty much ONLY allows you to work on the "raw" .c or .cpp files. IDEs will usually have dialog editors that allow you to visually edit the resource files. But this is about the only "abstracting" away an IDE will do for you. Of course the advantage of using an IDE, the IDE will allow you to jump around and access definitions and declarations much easier.

Comment Illegal Search and Seisure (Score 1) 419

ok, so they collected data from corporations, by "court order" without a reasonable suspicion. (And no, "something might possibly happen" isn't a reason). Then when a foreign suspect pops up (notice how they use the word "terrorist" but here a person is innocent until proven guilty, so they are at best a suspect) They then search ALL the data they illegally collected. This also sounds like an unreasonable search. Then and only then did they then "follow proper procedures" and laws. And that somehow makes it ok?
It is still unconstitutional. We have the right to be secure in our persons and our belongings. This meant we were secure.
All thanks to the boogey man.

I really wish that you would show up the next time someone inn the US dies from what would have been preventable through analysis of the call records. That way you could say "sucks to be you" the the family. It's the part right after that that I'd enjoy..

So, what you are saying is, all of the people who HAVE given their lives for the freedom of our country, wasted their life? They shouldn't have bothered. They should have saved themselves, stayed alive. Because it is more important to be alive, than to be free?

If you have to pay interns like regular employees, what's the point of hiring interns?

He didn't say you had to pay the interns. You only have to pay them if you make them do essentially grunt work. You hire interns to train them. They may still do some lower end jobs, for free, as long as they are learning.
