WTF? Pascal is not clean? Pascal was DESIGNED to be clean. It is very clean. It has strict type checking and is extremely sensitive to syntax. It doesn't allow any hanky panky to take place with any of its variables. You can't modify any variable without its assignment operator. Variables have to be declared, or else you get a runtime error. How is that not clean? Tell me one thing Pascal (Not Turbo Pascal and other flavors, but the language as it was created) does that is not clean?
Now, don't get me wrong. Pascal was a great language to learn straight programming, but was very limiting for every-day programming. Come Turbo Pascal. I must have written dozens, if not hundreds, of TSR programs that created ISRs, from sitting in the background and capturing keyboard input to recognizing that you changed your password on a NetWare server and sync it up to other servers. I even wrote a visual Connect 4 game that you could play over the network with your buddies, when the only LAN game I was aware of was "ncsnipes". Now those are things Pascal wasn't meant for, but Turbo Pascal extended the language very successfully and created a world where there was no end to what you could develop.
Let me know how calling for help using an FM receiver works for you, will you?
You actually CAN! Every FM radio (that I've dealt with) is also a transmitter. Don't believe me? Try putting two FM radios near each other. Tune one to the middle of the band on static, and then run across the band on the other one. At some point the static on the first one cuts out. Connect a line level output to the right place on the second radio and voila! You have your own radio station. I did this at my dorm in college. Freaked the shit out of everyone on the floor!
Until then, people would be happily using Fedora 24.
I, for one, am not a happy Fedora 24 user. Having used Fedora since Fedora 3 on my desktop, I'm about to switch to CentOS. Too much playing in Fedora has broken many things. Take DNF, for instance. Not sure why we changed away from Yum. I haven't had this many dependency failures in a very very long time. I said this before on SD, but the last good version of Fedora was FC18 or FC19.
Cut that wire and route it back into your recording device.
It occurred to me, what if they use a special speaker which will provide an encrypted signal back to the circuit before the amp, via a third wire, and if the signal to +/- is tampered with (cut, sees difference impedance, etc) then it sends the message to stop playing?
Probably 16 or 17. I've been using Fedora since FC3 and its quality went up until things stopped working during installation. For instance, I used to be able to switch to command prompt during installation, set up my drives in any RAID format I wanted, with ANY parameters I wanted, and have the graphical installation recognize my setup and install away. Even wireless worked off the bat on the notebooks I installed on.
Come the new installation process and it looks like everything is dummied down, which I don't mind, as long as the advanced functions don't get taken away. But it looks like they have.
I actually downloaded 24 this morning and tried the live boot on an Acer notebook. To my surprise, it actually recognized the wireless and I was able to get on, but I couldn't fire up any programs (including terminal). All I'd get was a spinning cursor. Granted this was just on one notebook, and I'm going to install 24 on the notebook as soon as I put an SSD in it, but it seems like the installation quality has gone down significantly. I actually liked being able to select my packages during install.
Incidentally, when did systemd make its way into Fedora?
Real Programmers don't write in PL/I. PL/I is for programmers who can't decide whether to write in COBOL or FORTRAN.
