You say "caring", I say "having integrity". But hey, you've got the only correct value system, right?
Uh. You don't know how to spell "weird". I don't think we should take you very seriously.
Parking pawls are flimsy, and constant use will wear out transmission components, making it even more dangerous to rely on.
and you'll see that the "park" gear is a dinky soft cast iron pawl.
So? Hook a rope up to that car and try to tow it, and you'll find that "dinky soft cast iron pawl" stands up to the challenge perfectly, and the wheels will skid. There's no point in engineering it any better.
Another example: dock color. This is such a dumb preference but I cannot imagine why they don't make it user customizable. I like dark colored dock backgrounds, they look better on the desktop backgrounds I choose. But Apple simply will not make them customizable.
Actually, you've got two choices, light and dark, which sounds like it might suit you. It's not in the Dock Control Panel, of course. It's in General.
Keeping in mind that it wasn't me that typed M$
I'd wondered if I should've clarified that in my post. In any event, it has been now. I'm really just responding to you because you're not an AC (I'll explain soon). Just looking to have conversation about it, not tell anyone off.
do you give more veracity to pretty people because you think a pretty person is smarter than an ugly person?
Not to the extent I can be aware of my own biases. Again, I chose to respond to you because you're not an AC. It's not because I think logging in lends veracity to your argument, it's just that engaging in conversation with a group of unknown number or reputation has proven to be very unrewarding in my experience. When I do make judgements like this, I like to at least be able to stand by them with reasons
I don't write people off just because they write 'M$'. You have your reasons when you do, and it doesn't really bother me. As another poster said, I have to admit considering the company's abusive behaviour it's to criticise them - and it is. I don't look down on people who think and say MS are shady.
All I'm saying is, coming from someone who used to write M$, and does no longer: as I've matured I've found it a lot easier to make my point heard when I don't decorate it with extra baggage that prompts your listeners to start making judgements about you.
Whether the judgements are sound or not, people will make them. Sometimes people you're genuinely trying to sell yourself too, no randoms on Slashdot. All things being equal, the post without the dollar sign embellishment will be better received, in my opinion.
Sounds like your people could determine if something is truth or a lie just by performing a find on it, for M$, and not even read it. That sounds to me like exceptional intelligence, you agree? The way to get to the absolute truth.
I don't have a "people" that all think like I do. I'll forgive your snark on the basis I think you've misunderstood me a little.
You'll probably come across as juvenile, this may be right or wrong and again, this may be your intention.
Fact is, some people are going to switch off when they see you write "M$", or refer to their company by the stock symbol, as if that's a reasonable thing to do outside the context of actually investing in that stock.
When you're making an entirely valid and objective criticism of their company's behaviour / products (and I know you'll agree that's not difficult to do), you've nothing to gain by putting off a portion of readers by making them think you're a nutjob, even if you are.
Real programmers don't comment their code. It was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.
