I have to say that of all the sounds that have irritated me in a theater, I've never had someone eating popcorn being one of them.
All I need is an updated Clippy telling me what to code next!
It looks like you're trying to write a new OS! The authorities have been alerted, and will be at your location presently!
Android CUPS Printing. Advertises through AVAHI, works on Smart Phones, solves the problem. No Google involvement.
My Android phone with the HP print service installed just finds my HPLJ2300 on the network. No server involvement, beyond the Jetdirect card. ISTR paying $200 for it, and then I went ahead and ponied up another hundred bucks for an additional tray, a postscript DIMM, and a 128MB DIMM.
Back when I lived at the Marshmallow Peanut Circus near downtown Santa Cruz, CA, yes I would have paid that — or rather, my share of it. With six of us in the house and a fairly decent television (and pretty nice stereo), $25 would have been a shoo-in and even $50 would probably have been feasible for some pictures. But there would have been some conditions. Wave a wand and ignore the technical restrictions of doing this in the early 2000s; it would have had to have been as good quality as rental, and it would have had to have been downloaded ahead because you still can't trust streaming now and we didn't actually have the bandwidth to do it back then.
If I'm not trying to see the movie with other people, then I can wait. I don't need to see it when it comes out if I'm going to see it at home anyway.
As others have suggested, I would pay a premium to get to stream the movie early, provided I had a physical disc coming to me when it was released. But I wouldn't pay so much only to watch the movie. For $25 I might even accept a DVD, if it were an anamorphic transfer and came with DTS audio. For $50 I expect a Blu-Ray.
Perhaps my expectations are high. So be it.
PowerShell isn't a scripting language in the traditional sense -- it's a whole ecosystem that can expose the entire machine if you have the rights, and perform extremely complex stuff on the user's behalf.
So, just like the Unix shell, then.
apparently, study of ancient history falls apart if we require the kind of proof that you're looking for for a historical jesus.
That's fine. We should require that kind of proof. Otherwise, it should be acknowledged to be the study of mythology, and the places in which it intersects with observable reality.
I think we should look ahead to the day when anyone trying to game a stock market is taken outside, stripped naked, and their testicles are plugged into a car battery, but that's just me.
No, what he is referring to is that you get into a command shell, you can invoke an unsigned PowerShell script with PowerShell.exe -file. But that's not much different than source in bash.
But it's hard to imagine a social engineering attack that would get a user to download a file and then get them into a CLI session to override execute flags or signing to invoke the script file.
My chief issue with Powershell is the naming conventions. I prefer the mnemonic approach of the *nix world.
This is one of the reasons micro kernels have a much more manageable security model. The problem being microkernels have some performance penalties that, at least in previous generations of CPUs, lead most OS developers to work in monolithic or mixed models. Yes, there are user space device drivers, so there has been a lot of work done to move device drivers a lot further away from Ring 0 and Ring 1, but even this simply makes monolithic kernels even more complex, and complexity is always the enemy of security.
