Yes, but you also require the user to have Python installed. I know that I don't have Python on my computer.
A Windows batch file requires you to have Windows installed. I know that I do have Windows though...
Very. Much. This.
I hear stories along the same lines as these about schools in Australia and I say to myself "That isn't bullying, that's out and out assault!".
Beatings and bashings aren't the occasional nipple cripple. One you can potentially tolerate, the other requires police intervention.
20. The law recognises no positive obligation on any person to protect the copyright of another. The law only recognises a prohibition on the doing of copyright acts without the licence of the copyright owner or exclusive licensee, or the authorisation of those acts. In the circumstances outlined above and discussed in greater detail in my judgment, it is impossible to conclude that iiNet has authorised copyright infringement.
Just because you're able to copy my file doesn't make me responsible.
As has been discussed before, that's one definition (capital F fundamentalism).
No, it's not. Can you show me any dictionary that defines fundamentalism as "Let's strip off all of the ritual, tradition, cruft, and bloat that's crept into Christianity over the past 2000 years, and get back to what was preached and practiced back in the First Century"? I didn't think so. That's your own interpretation, and is significantly off the mark, as fundamentalism (being a recent re-interpretration of Christianity) adds its own cruft and bloat.
Unions have helped bring the human component to our work lives
Biggest laugh I've had all day. Unions have no interest in the outperformer. To the extent that they seem to help members, they protect the mediocre, the inferior, and those that could make an effective cause celebre. Unions want their members to appear interchangable, otherwise collective bargaining is an obvious fraud.
Anyone know of any large outsourcing company that deliver what they promised, to a decent quality?
Capita are another company that comes to mind. They have ripped off most public services in the UK with their poor products. Capita did a good job at ripping Birmingham City Council off with their new web site.
This is a great idea. If you know you have to leave for work at a certain hour, you can use an online calendar program that has the option to send you an alarm by sms. It sounds a really interesting project that many of us would like to read about. If you aren't good at putting together web pages, then get a free blog account such as Blogger or Livejournal. Make each aspect of the project into an article you post online.
Make sure your code does nothing gracefully.
