Re: JS and CSS
I love it when people think JS and CSS are somehow a problem and not the environment!

If it has lyrics I've never understood them. But that's probably because I saw them live in what is best described as a concrete bunker with Hotblack Desiatio's PA in the room. They were nearly as loud as The Q-Tips who managed to solve the CO2 problem by making micro-diamonds from the air in the auditorium.
I wonder, if at that level, the quantum world will just collapse into the real world? While physicists have managed to get large groups of atoms to behave 'quantumly' thats as a unit rather than a lot of things being quantumly individually which is where it becomes matter and may ignore our requests for eye popping flashes of octarine.
If this is a certificate serial number then its going to take a long time to actually run out of numbers. I will have to have a sleepless night to consider reading the RFC but if its like other serial number would it not be partitioned and so the only chance of a collision if some organisation used up all its number range and somehow didnt notice?
who phoned me 12 times yesterday to inform me my internet IP needed changing due to it being compromised by several foreign companies.
In the interest of cleaning up the internet I hit 1 to be connected to and advisor and then get silence for a few seconds and then get disconnected. I've been doing this pretty much daily for about six months and can only assume they are paying significant amounts of money to phone me from India to achieve nothing. I find it frustrating cos I really want to talk to someone live for an hour or so to break my record.
The law is not an ass - this is how it was designed to work. In this case you should look to who writes the laws that allow this shit. I would imagine a search of Hansard will reveal it was implemented under a tory government to encourage entrepreneurs in the UK. By entrepreneurs I mean people who contribute to party funds and a lot of their MPs.
While trying to understand some controller software for a video production facility I found an unnamed valve that was initiated once every 123 videos. I was just bored and trying to work out how the place ran and didnt really think about it until a month or two later when fixing some shit on the air lines on the conveyor I came across a cardboard box by the side of the line as it came out the 'other' side of a wall in an fairly well hidden part of the factory with easy access to a fire door opening onto the car park. Sure enough every 123 videos one the valve actuated and flipped a tape off the line into the box for delivery to the back of pub somewhere. As I worked the night shift and never interfaced with 'proper' management I mentioned it to the night shift controller who said he'd deal with it.
And I think that's how I got promoted to another unit!
my card may well have 16 digits on it but that design guru (or utter fucking bastard (the one that designed the plastic tag for opening your packet of bacon that never ever works)) decided you'd really like a credit card with a pattern in shiny on it so no matter where the light is you can only ever read 12 of the digits accurately! 4 on mine are under the hologram so change randomly.
Makes me so angry I could lisp.
I would have thought it a trivial (tedious but trivial) problem to model the cpus to exhaustion and be able to highlight any register or memory leakage that could occur.
They might not like the results they get but a quick look at Electric seems to suggest you could do it with free chip design software so I'd expect a commercial package to be up to it,
Many moons ago ( a bad habit I know) I made a device (from EE&WW?) that allowed 5 bands of noise removal and then an hour or so with a razor and splicing tape and you could take the clicks out of almost anything and not notice. I used it to recover (and I mean recover) the music from some well beaten 78's and was gobsmacked by the difference it made.
I cant find it at the moment but I have seen an Alsa Modular Synth setup to do just that but with a bit of thunking you should be able to take any digital stream and improve it considerably.
It really is amazing how much crap you can filter from something if you have the patience,
When I can be arsed I look to see what's happening in the audiophile world. It seems people can tell the difference between 16bit MP3s and 24 bit MP3s. This is because its a shit way of compressing data that, lets be honest, doesnt need compressing and introduces 'features' that you can learn to spot in the music - a bit like how anyone moving on TV these days has a halo around them.
Interestingly no-one has ever successfully identified (in double blind tests) any difference between CD quality recordings and 'better' as far as I can tell,
Its worth remembering, however that ritual can improve your perception of something. Playing vinyl can actually improve user perceptions of music. It may sound worse but the tea ceremony ritual of getting the record out of its two sleeves, cleaning it and carefully placing the needle on it (or whatever) are almost guaranteed to provide an improved user experience than listening to R1.
Cant remember why* but these little cylinders of 99.999% gold were used in our chip making process and it seemed like a good idea until after a few moves you couldn't tell who was who and marking them was out of the question.
* cant remember why we played chequers!
Its getting the right answers 'for the wrong reasons' but no-one told it they were the 'wrong' reasons so its just doing what it can, So the next trick will be to make sure it doesnt take an easy route - but whatever is going on humans are learning as much as AI.
No its an indentation Nazi which is just as bad. It just shifts the problem somewhere else, it doesnt get rid of it, Because its not really a problem, Its the underlying concepts that people find difficult.
I have been teaching some youngsters and most prefer brackets when things get a bit complicated, it may be my influence I'll grant you, but when a code block stretched to a few tens of lines parentheses matching is a god send. Who needs a collapsible editor when you can find a matching delimiter. And why do collapsible editors only ever collapse from the top?
