Prolly because that symbol was taken by the likes of boost and Qt and ...
"While you can write clean, easily maintained code, it's also trivially easy to write code that will make your eyes bleed just looking at it."
I literally can't think of a language that this isn't equally true for.
Stated another way, you can write FORTRAN in any language.
Just basing my assessment on public utterances (which, in his case, consists of various grunts and guttural expressions that someone, with the right inebriants on board, could reasonably misinterpret as speech).
But at a hearing in front of the Senate's science and commerce committee on Wednesday, it became clear that the question was included simply to appease a single senator: Ted Cruz (R-TX).
Ted Cruz, probably the dumbest fuck in the Senate....
Congresscritters: I'm shocked, shocked to find that our names were used fraudulently in this net neutrality business. What are you going to do about it?
Eejit Pie: Er...well, nothing.
Congresscritters: Oh, well...just don't let it happen again!
Eejit Pie: Sure....
Congresscritters: OK. Well, that's settled, then. I need a Scotch!
Take notes. Take LOTS of notes.
They took Notes...and fucked it up good. Multiple times. Remember the old saying (paraphrasing): "Windows ain't done until Notes doesn't work" (It's been a long time, and I'm tired....)
Microsoft corporate VP Julia Liuson, responsible for programming languages and tools
Oh, so she's the one responsible for Micros~1's continuing inability to produce a standards-compliant compiler.
NOOOOooooo! They couldn't do that! How else would they be able to de-install all the meticulously crafted defenses against their non-stop data slurp? After all, we wouldn't want your machine to work the way you want it to, now would we?
Actually, it was Patrick Moynahan that was the chief
11 tests. Back in the days of Section 1706 (brought...or should I say foisted upon us...by Ronald McDonald Reagan as a political favor to a well-connected body shop in Massachusetts providing contract workers to Lotus...remember them?), there were 20 common-law tests that were used to determine one's employee/contractor status. That the number shrunk to 11 over the years did in no way clarify the situation. The tests were intentionally vague, and often contradictory. At the end of the day, the question came down to control: Who controlled the work environment, the "worker" or the "boss". If the worker controlled it, the worker was a contractor, otherwise the worker was an employee.
Looking at the ABC test, it's simpler...but not particularly iron-clad. Mainly, lawyer types can always make an argument that the "boss" always sets the rate of payment (even if negotiated between the "boss" and the "worker"; if the "boss" won't pay the "worker's" rate, and the worker must settle for the "boss's" rate, the "boss" is in control...QED), and therefore everyone is an employee. Not sure that's a reasonable outcome either, so some fine tuning is still needed.
Nothing Carl Ichanfuckupanythingigetmyhandson can do for/with/to VMWare can be any good for anyone (but himself...and even that isn't guaranteed....)
And no doubt, despite the events occurring in 2014/2015, many posters on here will blame Trump rather than the double term former president.
Anybody with 2 neurons to rub together would realize that the only entity to "blame" would be Uber.
If, as Mitt Romney famously said, "Corporations are people, my friends....", then it is about time that this "person" be indicted, tried, and jailed for serial RICO statute violations.
Simples: We here in the Colonies don't have a Constitutional right to get sloshed.
[...] and if you think Trump shut it down you're an idiot.
Actually, it's pretty clear that he's an idiot, regardless of what he thinks.
Seems Dianne Feinstein is slipping.
Had they made their new ideas for GUIs options that one could try , rather than defaults that one had to work to get shot of if one didn't like them, then users would have been much happier.
Your post assumes that Micros~1 gives a flying fuck if its users are happier.
OK fine. In Win7 you have the option to turn it off. In fact, you can revert the presentation all the way back to that of WinXP if you so desire.
In Win8++, faggeddaboudit!
Happy to have given you your 100th upvote in this thread.
(I'd put up a beer icon, but for some yet-unfathomable reason, the icons still aren't; showing up here since the latest forum tweak. Oh, well...here's to you.)
Microsoft wanted to give users a consistent platform "experience" on its different Windows-branded devices.
Fuck you and your damned "experience". The only "experience" I want is a fully functional, intuitive, robust application that does its job day in and day out without looking like, or acting like, some ADHD-addled Millennial's acid-tinged nightmare.
[...] when it comes to thinking about how to design an app, Redmond wants developers to pay attention to light, depth, motion, material, and scale.
I see. No thought about function, robustness, fitness for purpose, or any of that non-whizzy, mundane stuff for Micros~1, then.
With Fluent Design, Microsoft has a new goal. It wants to discard the multiple, disparate user interfaces of the past for a single, focused, and attractive user interface that will woo users used to cleaner and focused interfaces from macOS and mobile platforms.
"Single", "focused" and "attractive"..weren't these the same words Micros~1 used to describe the Ribbon?
Hmmm...Not showing up here on my desktop, and haven't since upvoting/downvoting stopped explicitly reloading the forum page. I'm running on Chrome (not by choice...), and have uBlock Origin and Scriptsafe running. No changes to either's settings since I last saw the icons, but I have disabled both, and still no pictures. Are they being served by a new, different server since the change that I now have to whitelist?
Hey there, Drew...since we're discussing what changed...what happened to the icons that once could choose to present alongside a post? Without them, it's really hard to raise a pint to a poster, or indicate that one blew one's caffeinated cola-flavored soft drink all over one's keyboard, or imply that something is hidden in my coat's pocket, or graphically indicate an epic fail, or...well, you get the idea.
What happened? Are they coming back?
Presented for your approval (or not; I really don't care): The (original) acoustic 360/370 bass amp [Emphasis definitely added!]. Not a tube or valve to be found anywhere near it, but it is the only amp, living or dead, that has approached my ultimate of standing roughly 10 feet in front of it, hitting the low 'E' string, and having it knock one's feet out from underneath one.
Bosworth said he was just trying to be provocative. "I don't agree with the post today and I didn't agree with it even when I wrote it,"
What a steaming pile of
public relationscover-your-ass (CYA) dung.
I thought it was Melanoma....
Thank you for your service....
Larry Ellison is the Martin Shkreli of software.
(Hey, El Reg, what happened to the icons? Not showing up here since the k3wl new website upgrade....)
C++ has a fuckton of developers, you just don't hear much from us since we're busy working and getting the job done rather than making a big noise about how we're so cool for using [insert trendy language of the month here].
I wanted to put up the beer icon for this comment, but for some reason, the icons are missing. No matter; this one's for you (it's just very pale today...)!
Stated another way: You can make it foolproof, but you can't make it damnfoolproof.
"It's his photo and his right to say "that's my nephew""
True, but you should let your uncle know how deeply objectionablel doing that without your permission really is.
A sibling of mine actually did that, and I responded as JohnFen suggested...at a close-to-thermonuclear level. Caused an extreme riff in the family for a few weeks until said sibling deleted the photo and the reference (and apologized). Yes, I know it's too late and the shadow file is there somewhere. But it got my sib's attention, and it's not likely that that particular behavior is going to be repeated.
However, these tactics by Facebook makes me pretty annoyed at them and it seems rather antu-competitive as well.
And yet, you remain....
Fundamentally, it's a near-monopoly on users that makes it impossible not to have a Facebook account and still be able to - for example - be efficiently invited to a friend's party, or see your family's holiday photos, or keep up loose contact with distant friends.
That is the largest pile of horse exhaust I've heard all month (and I live in America, and am constantly bombarded by pronouncements by Der Lügenführer himself)!
You know, we still have phones (you probably have one in your pocket; perhaps you should learn how to use it to make a phone call someday). And there are actually two kinds of mail systems still in wide use across the planet.
Anyone who is going to try to persuade me or anyone else with an IQ above room temperature that Faceplant is any kind of monopoly on media for social contact is so full of shit that his/her eyes are guaranteed to be brown.
Apple has repeatedly stated that monetizing user data is not part of their business model.
As George Leroy Tirebiter once famously said:
And you can trust me, 'cuz I'm always right, and I never lie.
Its a huge potential mess...
Go, Mess, Go!
Go, Mess, Go!!
Go, Mess, Go!!!
It's March Madness time here on this side of the Pond, so....
Among the main responsibilities listed in the ad [...] are to "provide advice and guidance on data protection legislation" and "support the response to any data protection related queries from within the business".
The "responsibility" they don't list is: Define mechanisms to circumvent data protection measures taken by our targets."
In a word....'Tablets'.
Waddya mean, "The title is too long"? Is this a 16-bit website?
Well, actually, I was part of the "duck'n'roll" generation...you know, the one that was told from basically Day 1 that Khrushchev was going to bury us with his shoe, and that wet newspaper and school desks would protect us from fallout of most every kind. All that Commie Pinko stuff happened very much before I was born, yet it rather did have an effect on how I grew up, and how I and millions like me responded to that little dust-up in SE Asia.
Of course you, Mr. Jeffery W. Millennial, have absolutely no idea of what I am talking about, and I know you bloody well don't care either.
So get your pampered, expectant, doomed-to-repeat-history ass off my lawn, dammit!
Usually signified by underline in the menu item text, tho that visual has been set to off by default since a while back.
Underlines in menus are soooo anti-Millennial!
1.3 of unthinking cattle can not be wrong!
Not too sure about that 1/3 of a cow, though....
Hopefully some of those folk are in governments that like to squash anti-competitive behaviour.
In the Drumpf
Masturbation...er...Administration??? Shirley, you jest.
I have to wonder if you are actually employed. No, it is not part of my job to use a browser forced on me by Microsoft.
I'm happy for you, I really am. But that doesn't make you any less of a pompous git for not realizing that the rest of the world may not have the same luxury as you. Fat-asses tend to be like that.
Well, without resorting to a blue streak extending from here to North Dakota: I think it is yet another reason not to use windows 10.
You'd think Micors~1 would have learned by now. But since these decisions are being made by ADHD-addled Millennials who have nothing but contempt for anything historical that happened before they were born, this is predictable. Sad.
You could always just change your name to "John Smith" or some other popular name then no one will know which one you are.
I thought the guy's name was "Winston"....
Maybe it is Android Plus...but it's not Mint.
And anybody who has the gall to attempt to escape SatNad/Ballmer/Gates's slimy clutches is not about to countenance Android, Android Plus, Android++, Android--, or any other flavor thereof.
[...] if Microsoft wants to charge money to switch people out of it, EU anti-trust is going to come down like several tons of bricks.
Are those metric tons?
Who says the US doesn't export? Seems we're the world leader in exporting arms (of all types), and really fucking bad ideas.
