Libraries I use claim to support 508 / Aria (tho it's optimized for firefox and firefox aria add-ons) , but I've never actually tested it with JAWS. Maybe one day i'll get around to it.
This used to be mitigated by requiring Workfare instead of welfare (thanks obama, literally, for getting rid of workfare
Basic Income is completely idiotic. Why should I subsidize the non workers/non producers, of which they will greatly increase under such a system, simply because they exist. I paid attention in shitty schools, I made mostly wise decisions, I made something for myself, I have a strong work ethic. They can do the same or enjoy the poverty I raised myself out from.
>> The curriculum framework directs the focus of instruction away from programming as a skill
so... it's completely worthless?
>> enabling problem solving, human expression, and creation of knowledge
sounds like new age feelz garbage to me.
I've had to register every mac address for every device in the house onto my ASUS Dark Knight's parental controls to block during the evening during the school year so my daughter can get some sleep. Then I had to disable cell data on her phone bc she automatically started using that instead since the wifi booted her at bed time. Forced her onto skype/Facebook Messenger/Vita after she used up months of banked minutes talking to her cousin all day while using cams to play dolls together 300 miles apart.
Real. Welcome to the 21st century. I still find it a miracle my waifu ever let me have a 19" rack in the house... but now it holds the file server, code repository and minecraft server.
This, in spades. Daughter uses her PC for school (public virtual school, far superior to brick-and-mortar public schooling, i'm amazed at what they teach), both her and waifu use youtube and netflix heavily during the day. I use netflix at night. Direct TV downloads on-demand over the intertubes, my skype/google hangout DnD sessions I host, Battlefield, metal gear online, dynasty, counterstrike, waifu's MMOs,twitch streaming, crunchyroll anime, steam, faceyspace and twatter, Daughter voice chatting over Vita while playing minecraft with cousins, IPads and IPhones, multiple laptops and desktops, Live-in mother-in-law faceyspace stalking everyone on her Air and laptop. We're practically a cancer node.
Soon as this hit my area, I signed up for the $30 extortion fee, bc 300 gigs is a joke and my household crosses that in a week easy. Now, I make it a point to use as much bandwidth as I can, downloading every goddamn cat video on the internet, twice, daily, while playing games online and streaming netflix on multiple devices most of the day, just because.
I'm getting every damn pennies worth out of it.
minus the joy that is Ruby
Not sure if this is sarcastic or not...
I absolutely loathe Ruby and can't wait for it to end up in the dustbin of stupid half-assed fads.
Wait.. what? I'm not allowed to use AA mounted in back of my truck to hunt ducks? Since when was that a thing?!
What if I paint it in pink camo like my daughter's AR?
This is obviously a work for hire. I am paying for food to eat, it is mine. The food is not licensed to me for the period of my consumption. All rights to the food on my plate belong to myself and my digestive tract.
I'll have to disagree with you on that. Java in a browser has indeed sucked, and probably always will. Java outside of a browser has been great and getting better since 1.4, especially on the server end. I've made swing applications indistinguishable from a native windows application, webservices and backend processes that have very large uptimes. Granted there are some bolt on stuff that totally sucks like JSF, but what idiot does browser side code mixed with backend code in a crappy framework like asf/jsf.
Aside from Java (which has it's own issues), Oracle's products are imo, craptastic. Horrid UIs, constantly crashing, slow, design decisions that make no sense, not modernizing, barely follow modern standards if at all, insanely overpriced (the least of the problems).
1) If i could guarantee 150 miles per day at 70mph minimum (speed limit is 70), that would cover my commute. Driving with a bunch of batteries, waiting to get rear ended however, not looking forward to, but a minor concern.
2) No RV stations, and no place to charge at my destination. If I'm low on juice at my destination, I'm screwed and can't get home. I can buy gas within 5 minutes of any point along my route. Thieves are also common in my city, so having a plug outside the home is an invitation to be robbed, if just for the plug's metal alone, plus if I can afford a tesla, what other expensive goodies are in my house.
3) If tesla isn't charging, who is paying for the electricity? Electricity ain't cheap here, esp during the summer. What motivation is there for third parties to install chargers at existing stations if it brings in zero revenue. What is the charging time? It already takes 90 minutes to get to work, I can't wait another 30 on the road to charge up if some damn prankster kid unplugged me over night.
Nah, Teslas don't work for me. I commute 60 miles to work, none of it down town driving, and there are no recharging stations near anywhere i'd be traveling, nor would it be profitable to have one along the route. Most convenient form of energy transference, Dino Juice.
