I can just imagine the Scalia response to this: "No amount of legal fuckery-duckery entitles the MPAA to forcibly deputize ISPs, at their own expense, into a copyright law enforcement agency with powers well beyond what the actual police exercise under the Constitution."
X is pretty much deprecated at this point. No one wants to maintain drivers for that shit.
His Majesty, the King, hath ordained that all School-boys should be versed in the arcane Art of Algorism; and should hence be capable of figuring Sums, Differences, and Products of multiple Digits, without aid of a Person who specialises in this Art. Prithee, sirrah, how would such an Ordinance be satisfactorily implemented?
"I'm sorry, Mr. Vader. Your financial history just doesn't support us extending you a line of credit."
"I find your lack of faith... disturbing."
Giant windmills constantly turning just makes scenery more awesome.
Back before TPM came out, my college (I know, I'm old) had a special showing of the original trilogy.
What I couldn't get over was how hokey it all was. What had seemed to me as a kid to be the very pinnacle of epicness (next to Robotech) came across as cheesy, with lame dialogue and a simplistic plot. Yes, even Empire: all its vaunted "darkness" was quite clearly a way of setting up a cliffhanger to make damned sure you were at the theater when Jedi came out.
But it was the best kind of hokey: it was labor-of-love hokey, it wasn't trying to be anything else. It was entertainment in the fullest sense of the word, and it's clear that the people who made these movies, cared passionately about entertaining the audience. So I discovered a new kind of fun and appreciation in watching Star Wars.
RFID tags and subdermal magnets are mere parlor tricks, not worth the risk and pain of opening up my skin. Now, once those perfect-vision-forever implantable lenses get approved, I'll be all about that.
I'm already using the phrase "Joint Strike Fighter" to describe anything that's a massive overwrought boondoggle. Fir example: "Atom, the Joint Strike Fighter of text editors."
There, your coding-font problems are solved. You're welcome.

Compared to DirectX, OpenGL is a terribad API to work with.
If you are using an engine such as Unreal or Unity with multiple back ends, then OpenGL becomes somewhat feasible. Otherwise developers are better off choosing DirectX and going Windows only, targeting 95% of the gaming PC market.
... so you're all set. Although, no braces on your arms, though, so you're going to have to rely on the old human strength to keep a grip on the device and, by extension, me. So do make sure to keep a grip on me.
Also a note: no braces on your spine, either, so don't land on that. Or your head, no braces there. That could--that could split like a melon from this height. [nervous laugh] So do definitely focus on landing with your legs.
I thought "Correct Horse Battery Staple" was already blown up by advanced rainbow table and hashing techniques, and that's why we have to TWO-FACTOR ALL THE THINGS.
... they want to get rid of the fookin' pr0ns?
Attempting to turn yourself into an internet meme won't cozy you up to us, not when your administration's policy is that all private communications online should be subject to government snooping.
