Being an individual, instead of a cog in the collective, is not selfish.
I find these arguments against individuality perplexing, coming from the same people who argue for tolerance of their own individuality when it comes to culture, appearance, the arts, and other creative pursuits.
I'm not aware of people saying "gee, I really don't want that nine-to-five job, I want to be an uberer/fiverr/lyfter". They* are taking those jobs because they don't have anywhere else to go
Yeah, like he said. It's supplemental income. That doesn't mean they only work it because they have no job. You know that there are more than 40 hours in a week, right? Sometimes people are willing to forgo partying or gaming for a few hours each week in order to make some more cash.
There has been A LOT of added functionality since Windows 3.1 days! Not just changes in the UI, but changes to security, API's, and so on. Windows, and for that matter other operating systems, are far more complex than they have ever been.
Possibly, but at least developers don't have to deal with the segmented memory model and other 16-bit limitations from Windows 3.1. Writing programs to run in the original 16-bit Windows API was one of the most byzantine things I have ever done.
There is no Federal law regarding repair requirements for automobiles or tractors. The only relevant law is one passed in 1990 that required computer monitoring of emissions and, in turn, required that independent shops be able to access the data.
Both major parties have had control at various times, and neither of them was able to get such a law passed. You have been deceived into becoming a loyal low-information Democratic voter.
The ONLY way that they wouldn't be is if the whole network is owned by one company and they were charging some "sheep IP licensing fee" from a low tax country.
Well, having one animal that's both woolly and tasty is certainly innovative. I'm sure that somebody must have patented it.
Java would only complain if you used integer literals that big, but such literals are usually unrealistic. Most often, problems like this happen because of results of calculations.
The fact is, Java would silently overflow computing an integer value of 99999999999999999999 unless you use BigIntegers or the equally awkward new APIs such as Math.addExact().
C# would also overflow unless you compiled with non-default settings.
Any programming language is at its best before it is implemented and used.
