HOA's are an evil blight on society and it can be extremely hard to avoid getting a house with one.
put the "reopen the last closed tab" into the command bar.
Yes, I know there's a keyboard command. But just as certain is that the moment I accidentally close a tab, I won't remember it because I don't need it THAT often.
Not anymore. Yes, it still matters with high end, AAA titles. For everyone else, there's Unity. And Unreal Engine. And
I wouldn't expect many who currently claim to be game programmers to understand it. Let alone come up with something close to it.
Even in games, efficient code isn't the be-all, end-all anymore. Being able to "cheat" with the graphics and making low poly shit look great with creative texturing is where the money is today, it seems.
Yes, because your opinion isn't "pure" enough. It's only acceptable if you fully support us, because only then we can trust you.
Why do I feel more and more like the US politics is turning into something like a cult?
You think? Actually, most people fall into the moderate spectrum. It's just the fringe loonies that are VERY vocal about their position. And with the internet, you get to hear from them a lot more than you used to.
If anything, you have people who move towards the extreme side of their political stance because they feel that they can only choose between that loonie and the one that is even more alien to their point of view. But I highly doubt that the average Christian feels represented by the Westboros, or that the average liberal feels comfortable to rally behind the "kill all white men" battle cry.
And I don't give a fuck whether you have a coat hanger party or whether you sing "every sperm is sacred", where do I stand now?
You see, the only agendas that are "controversial" in the US are the ones that have exactly zero impact on anything but can be blown out of proportion, hyped and emotionalized. From abortion to gun laws to drug use. None of them has ANY reasonable impact on the life of the average person, but judging from the time spent discussing them (sorry: ranting about them, nobody discusses anything in "discussions"), you'd think the US has no other problems.
It would take as long as it is cheaper to run the inefficient query than recoding it.
There are usually a handful of "best" solutions, depending on your demands. There is a best solution when it comes to computing time. Another one for memory footprint. And so on.
So you cannot find a solution that is the best in all situations. But you can determine whether a solution is not the best in any situation.
And for nearly all applications, they don't give a shit. Computers are today faster than they need to be for nearly all applications the average office runs into.
They'd be wary to say that you're renting. Renting entails that certain maintenance work has to be paid for by the owner.
I admit it's been a while since I was in the US (since the TSA idiocy started to spread like cancer, to be exact), but I sure hope you don't consider Bud or Miller "beer".
The part of me that's Bavarian would like a word with you if you do!
The more it governs non-commercial activity the more it will be ignored. We are two generations in raising kids that think copyright is a joke and patents are mere excuses to sue.
What do you mean "two generations away". I'm nearly two generations older than today's kids and I know copyright is an utter joke that is routinely ignored. When I was young, non-technical people were already using Napster.
The problem with copyright isn't with age, its with lobbyists and an industry's refusal to accept change. The content industry thinks that it is still able to lock up content like the good old days before the internet. Those days are dead and gone but copyright laws are yet to change from the times when copyright infringement was an organised crime (because of the investment in investment needed to manufacture large amounts of VCR tapes). That died in the late 90's when anyone could set up a DVD burning farm on a few hundred bucks of commodity hardware, however the laws have not changed at all. This is entirely due to the content industry lobbying to prevent it and as such, we have outdated laws that are being routinely ignored because society has moved passed them
The content industry keeps pushing for harsher and harsher punishment for what is essentially a non-crime. This will never work in the long term and only prolong their demise. Just as online shopping has killed retailers who refused to adjust, the internet will kill the content industry who refuses to adjust.
So "you have better food and a nicer house than most others. Why do you want to own anything? STFU and consume more!"
Did I get it right now?
