For all we know...
...it could be an OS X trash can. Hard to tell at that resolution.
"Today, 20 plus parallel sessions are quite common; the browser is more of an operating system than a data display application," Mozilla Labs said.
Perhaps these people could look up the definition of 'operating sytem' before making trendwhore statements. Also, no mention of Chrome, the pioneers of the browser=OS bullshit?
Marshal8e6 sounds more like the name of a group of VXers rather than an anti-virus firm, e.g. "HAXED BY MARSHAL8E6 LULZ".
So am I the only one that experienced no outage? Or did it not affect POP3?
Could it be the other way around?
Perhaps the lonely body generates less leukocytes than the social body because the lonely one is subjected to less germs..?
- I believe your beloved country's Eurovision entry sucks donkey balls, Mr. Capitalistic Composer. ^_^
- Why thank you, your neighbors' commendable sycophantism was a grand success, if I say so myself, your Retarded Excellence, sir. ^_^
- Yes, true, very true, fuck you very much. ^_^
u cant has spel EMBARASMANT???? LOLOLOL
+1 (title requirement solution kit here)
+1 for global-warmingists. Now we can scare children with giant snakes if they don't finish their CO2 emissions.
What kind of primitive person are you? Should we get rid of GUIs too?
Here's a different idea, although I realize it doesn't concern very much the main target group of developers for Delphi: Compiler Optimizations! I'd rather not have to learn C++ so I can write floating-point stuff like synthesizers and audio effects that actually perform roughly as well as a C++ implementation. Maybe even some SIMD goodness?
Pics or it didn't happen
The moron was so destroyed by all the haxoring that he posted a screenshot of it on his "blawg". :(
The author tries to make such a strong point against OS X on non-Apple hardware. And what's with the pseudo-advertisement ending? Here's my experience of installing 10.4 on a rather old P4 system:
1. Create a partition for OS X (shrink existing partitions with PartitionMagic if necessary)
2. Install OS X from DVD.
3. Install a modified kext for sound.
4. Enjoy OS X.
My full-time OS X-using friends have similar experiences.
Introducing the new DellBook Pro
Seriously, what's with the fugliness? I thought the other brands tried to copy Apple designs, not the other way around.
New rover also features a megaphone
...so it can announce its arrival, "HAI MARTIANZ!! WE HAZ PEWPEW LAZERZ AND NUKEZ SO BRING FORTH THE WATERZ AND LIFEFORMZ NOW!"
So there was water on Mars, WE GET IT!
Now go do something useful with the planet FFS.
I live in a country whose native language is spelled phonetically. One can easily observe this "feature" of the language doesn't prevent bad writing and lousy spelling as a result of poor education.
The Great Filter
Perhaps this very technology and experiment will turn out to be the Great Filter™. (see http://hanson.gmu.edu/greatfilter.html)
Seriously though, how do they expect an elderly person to keep a laser beam steady? Especially at a distance it can be hard enough without being elderly.
Re: Ah, the Web 2.0 "Security"
Actually, there is no security at all. If you know the URL of a photo or a photo album (private or public), you can see it without even logging in. I'm not sure whether it should be called a security hole or a feature-by-design.
I like to think tablet PCs will really shine in the so-called creative industries (not just visual arts) once PC makers stop putting 5 year-old CPUs in them. Beyond office use the keyboard+mouse method can be really limiting. I recommended to one of my friends who works in audio production to buy a cheap graphics tablet and he can't stop talking about how much more efficiently he can get stuff done now. I personally can't wait till we have OS's that support multitouch tablet PCs.
"Centrino 2" doesn't make it less confusing in the overall picture. To average buyers this kind of "platform" has no meaning. Instead we hear of laptops with "Centrino Duo processor"s.
But what ARE the white bits? Also, what happened to the brown continents?
OOOOH I know! The continents are white because they're covered with snow from the ice age that global warming brought about.
"CD burning is much more domestic piracy, and is much more somebody avoiding paying for something."
WTF is he talking about? No one needs to burn CDs anymore.
On making a "living": who says people should become extremely rich from selling copies of an album? It's as if there's a universal law (or should that be "Universal®"?) that says so.
As for the governments intervening, same as above. Why should the government try to preserve this weird industry with levies and such? This isn't something we need for survival--it's not the governments' business, and if this industry can't survive as it is for some reason, THEN SO BE IT. Anyone who thinks music (or the other arts, for that matter) will suddenly perish if the huge corporations behind it collapse, is a blind moron.
Re: The real question
It's not a matter of using Quicktime as media player. The format is an industry standard for video editing (captures, intermediates, etc.). Most of the time there just isn't another viable option (considering price, interoperability and so on).
But yes, QuickTime is Apple's too successful impression of Microsoft.
"Surely, if ISPs limited CC emails to 20 a day and charged 1p per email CC thereafter, most spam would dry up?"
Who uses CC these days except cardigan-knitting office women? Not to mention, a large number of people use Gmail and such for their email, not their ISP's service.
Surely the author wouldn't pass this computer competence test he himself suggests.
It seems like Turkey bans and unbans YouTube almost every other week. It long lost its newsworthiness IMO.
By the way, as usual, the "ban" is just DNS "poisoning". If you set up your own DNS server on your computer then you can access YouTube, Pirate Bay and everything else you want.
I'd like to test but...
I don't think I can stand having Vista on my PC for 4 days.
Network Solutions are a bunch of axxwipes
They have made their site such that you *have* to make a domain search to see their prices. And soon all other registrars will follow suit to protect their respective "customers".
And for that matter why anyone would pay $35 for a domain when they could get one for less than one third of that is beyond me.
