Re: Re: So how come
Good luck when 2015 comes and Apple Lawyers will come and ask you the license for the codec of that video of your cat snoozing on your sofa you uploaded to the internet for anyone to watch.
...only if that LGPL code is part of an independent DLL, not "embedded" or otherwise statically linked to the main executable.
Good Bill on behalf of the "developers, developers, developers" alt-text.
Even better than that!
Italy has a Privacy Authority too.
I am lost here.
A spokesman for BP said: "We're extremely keen to see the benefits of deflation and we're looking at contracts throughout the supply chain - not just in IT. For instance the price of steel has falling sharply - we'd like to see the benefit of that."
Ok, probably I'm dumb but I don't understand what the hell this idiot is blathering about. Really, what the hell is he saying?
Steel is always steel and will always be the same steel of yesterday. The same steel you buy tomorrow will be made out of the same metals of the steel you bought yesterday and it will be produced with the same techniques. The price rises and goes down only in regard to the introduction of new tools to extract the iron and to create faster and safer foundries to produce it. Oh yes, and the fact that more steel is being bought and sold on the market.
Human know-how, instead, expecially by outside contractors who are expert in your technical domain, is something that grows, and it grows with time and hardships. When you risk contractors leaving your company, expecially if you have IT projects going into production or when you need people to do on-site support for your operations, you have all the hidden costs all popping up suddenly,made of delays, mistakes and important pieces of your workflow suddenly forgotten because you told GTFO to the only person who knew them.
But please, disregard my comment.
A difficult battle.
In this battle you may choose to stay on the pro-microsoft or anti-microsoft side, but in the end you are still telling people that "Vista and M" must die. :D
Italy is coming soon too.
Seen the googlecar twice in Turin. Anyway, get ready to check the Italian news service, as it will be hilarious to see Google being sued from both the "Garante della Privacy" and the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities.
The first because of some clause inside the Italian Data Protection Code, and the second because of copyright violation (yes, if you publish an unlicensed picture of a monument or other similar landmarks you are violating copyright in Italy).
My Lord of Warwick!
The real question now is: is there a good Tudor Jobs Agency online?
I agree. It is statistically proven that the "Solobacterium" prevents you from being infected by the "Significantogherbacterium", which has far worse effects because it puts a strain on your wallet, prevents you from going to the pub with your friends or, worse, might also push you into breeding! How horrible!!!
The Blood of Christ.
I wonder if they will substitute wine with coke during the last supper recreation.
Funny Enough (2)
Franco Frattini last year proposed to censor websites that included terms like "killing" and "bombs".
The Long Goodbye
I wonder if M$ fixed Vista's Long Goodbye.
Google doing WHAT?
In talk with the same person who unleashed the Spice Girls plague on us? And
I thought they promised to DO NO EVIL...
