They could not prove Nixon faking moon landings. So they nailed him for cover up of office break in.
Then the fiasco of Win8, skipped 9, Win10. Finally everyone will be brought to Win10 kicking and screaming. And they all will file bug reports with a vengeance. MS developers will bellyache having to fix bugs in win10, while all the really cool assignment goes Win12 teams. But eventually Win10 will get to be actually much better than Win7. Just in time to declare it dead and annoint Win12 as the new king of the hill.
And the cycle will repeat.
Its turtles all the way down. And bugs all the way up.
The only good thing is, good or bad, you know what GUI is available in ALL windows machines and you can develop applications. Linux suffers in that respect. Qt? or Tkl or gnome or what? . Quite sad, given X11 actually was way ahead of windows in providing a base set of ui features guaranteed on all unix systems.
But for people doing serious work with Linux command-line apps, not having Ctrl-C is a little like driving a car when only the front brakes work.
Shows how little the person who wrote the article knows about clipboards in linux.
Most xterm and clones use mostly emacs like syntax. control-insert for copy and shift-insert for paste. X11 systems use middle mouse click to paste sections highlighted with the mouse. Cygwin - mintty supports control-insert and shift-insert.
In the console window spawned by cmd if you edit and enable quick-edit mode, "ENTER" is copy and right mouse click is paste.
I work in a mixture of all three windows on my desktop simultaneously. I use window bg color to remind me what kind of console I'm working on to do the right copy-paste. But in none of these systems control-c is used for copy.
Only in MS-windows-GUI control-c is used for copy. Looks like the author's knowledge about control-c is based on hearsay.
Vandals destroy very valuable property
The law of firm of Dewy Chetham and Howe reported yesterday that vandals destroyed very valuable property. Spokesperson of the firm Insanei Rony said,
It is possible for him to have landed safely and secreted the money bags. After that it is very difficult to believe he could have survived long, somehow hitchhiked out of that area, to some bus station or train yard or truck stop traveled without being seen out of that area. With that level of media attention to that part of the country all strangers would have been noticed and reported. I think he died near where the cash was found. The wild animals tore through his body and clothing, most the cash and bones ended up in the river and washed out to the ocean.
Advice to future copy-cats. Practice skydiving and become familiar. Try to take your own familiar parachute. Ask for basic camping survival gear. Dry food rations and some water. After landing safely, secure the cash and note the gps coordinates. Find a water course and follow it down stream. Till you come to a river with decent flowing water. Collect drift wood, form a raft and float down stream. Raft only at nights. From the watershed where you jump, figure out which river you will end up in, pick the city to rejoin civilization, practice it couple of times, do dry runs.
With the proliferation of security cameras, high resolution picture of your face will have been recorded by TSA. So grow mustache, beard, dye them, wear glasses. Doctor your eye-glass frames to be asymmetric, slightly. You need to make the eigen values of the face detection algo matrix go askew. After the fact switch to contacts, go clean shaven and revert to natural hair color. Colored contact lenses before the crime^H^H^H^H^H adventure, a must.
Realize if you can pull this off, you are smart enough to make more money legally.
It is all just down payment or insurance for them.
When they leave this company, which they plan to do as soon as they cash in the stock options, they need to park themselves someplace, preferably getting paid to sit idle. They go to McKinzie and part of what the sent in earlier, they will collect for a few months, till they find another cow to milk.
And 99% of McKinsey jobs can be automated with a good bullshit generator
Disk crisis, please clean up!
