Maybé you'ré just incompétént?
So a grand total of about 74 minutes' work was lost.
Times the number of kids working at that time.
(on an unrelated aspect, i'm fine with you removing spacebar heating)
The best accidental "feature" is that yellow ad at the top (currently reads "Check out the new SourceForge HTML5 internet speed test!
Don't get me wrong, I don't like the ad itself, but more the weird bug that emerges out of the combination of firefox + pentadactyl and perhaps noscript.
The bug is that the top of the ad is anchored to the top of the (main) page, while the bottom seems to be anchored to just above the first story. So when I initially open
It's a no-brainer if you think about it. If enough people do have a RDS-enabled stereo with an actual antenna hooked up to it, most of them will get the warning. That means that a good portion of the cars in front of you will slow down/form a passageway/drive onto the shoulder/whatever. I'd say seeing that happen in front of you *might* give a subtle hint that something's up which in turn *might* be sufficient motivation to briefly shift your attention from the smartphone to the rear mirror to notice an oncoming emergency vehicle at which point you can consider the out-of-band RDS warning delivered.
Those people driving with headphones? They don't have an aux-in jack on their car stereo.
Yes, you're a very special snowflake. We get it.
If you're suggesting people meeting up in VR (using their avatars or whatever), then still no. Yes, interesting, but no, not the real thing. There's something to human-human interaction that you simply cannot reproduce with VR that's less advanced as what they have in the Matrix.
Think of a party. (I know, we're on slashdot, so just pretend you have ever been to one). Sure I could (if the technology was there) simply stay at home, meet up with my VR buddies on a VR dancefloor, tune the VR to try and reproduce the effects of whatever drugs seem appropriate and Have A Good Night. Will it be able to produce the same hot, sweaty atmosphere, will it properly recreate the feeling (not to mention the sound) of a row of 18" subwoofers? Will I be able to hit on that cute girl over there?
Talk about myopic(sic).
If done right, you won't even miss the energy of the crowd because you will be as good as there with them....
Sure, if you're fine with a crowd that consists of NPCs.
Will anyone still want to physically go to these events?
Yes. It might be difficult to understand, but some people might go to these events mostly because of other people going to these events.
Yes, all three(TM) BSDs have nvi in base, and call it vi, so you're right that it's technically not historical vi.
However, the very same man page you referred says nvi is "intended as bug-for-bug compatible replacement for the original Fourth Berkeley Software Distribution (4BSD) [...] vi program". So in my opinion it's fair enough to call it vi.
If only it had anything to do with Break...
The work^H^H^H^Hvirtual machine needs to be a windows because we have some programs that don't run under anything else.
Minor correction, ^Z generates SIGTSTP which can very well be caught. This is how job control is implemented.
There are no games on this system.
