It is somewhat more difficult to blacklist users of opensource programs.
Only if you get a refund from that 1 star review. I've had to use software that really deserved a 1 star review, but there was no other options in my price range.
Where are they spending all the money? They really just need a pile of servers and couple dozen coders to develop the system and perhaps couple admins to keep it running.
There wouldn't be any problem, there could be 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199 or even 2.9.100000.1000000000.
It depends. If the game is advertised to have features X,Y and Z and you get the impression that they should manifest around 40 hours of playtime and you don't see them, it isn't unreasonable to give test 10 hours more to be sure that the features are missing and then demand refund. Usually you can see the missing features faster and can demand refund after couple hours of playtime.
A smart developer would mention that features X,Y and Z are missing from this release even though they were promised/alluded to during several interviews. Even smarter developer would also mention that they are going to add the missing features and give some kind of timetable. Smartest developer wouldn't either promise features that cannot be finished before launch or delay the launch until the game is actually ready for launch.
I didn't get RFID enabled creditcard, instead I got app from the bank that enables the RFID payment with my phone after I enter my pin and click 'pay with RFID'. Another thing I do is to use only Visa Electron and keep minimal amount of funds on my account the card is linked to. Same with payments online, I have another Visa Electron with account that usually has balance of 0-5 euro and move funds there as needed. Also on sites that require to store my CC number, I usually switch that to one of the test CC numbers that are meant for testing online payment processing. They check as valid, accept any kind of payment and are not actually charged anywhere.
No no no, tabs should always insert a tab character, that way every single person reading the source can set the indent to something they prefer. For me that happens to be 2 spaces or 4, depending on language.
I have a chinese smart watch that runs on CR3032 battery for couple months which is quite ok. Only feature it is missing is a heart rate monitor.
How much do sites need to pay for the connection, servers and bandwidth? Nowadays you can get 100Mbps uncapped VPS from OVH for 5eur/month and dedicated quadcore server for 9eur/month. Add couple of those running Varnish or something as reverse proxy for your site (and perhaps put free Cloudflare on top of that too) and then get one of their beefier servers as backend, costs 25eur/month. And if you cannot afford to pay that much for a site per month and/or not get enough donations etc, then perhaps you shouldn't be running a website at all.
I assume you are paying for Slashdot and not using this service for free?
Also sometimes a personal insult is in order, especially when said person is acting like a dolt.
It is gentler than a tree. My own experience was with a motorcycle but the ditch had snow in it, thus it was much softer to hit than most ditches in the world.
Planting trees near roads sounds dangerous. Better to have wide ditch where your car will (relatively) gently stop in case you lose control of the car or have to avoid some obstacle on the road.
They really be more open on how much donations they are getting and how much the hosting actually costs. I really cannot support such projects that have vague donation'o'meter and I really can't judge if my money is spent running the infrastucture or to buy beers for the developers (which is just fine as long as I am told that part of my money is used this way).
