It wasn't until I came to Australia that I found supermarkets selling middle bacon, with both the meaty bit and the streaky bit all in one convenient package.
The only downside is that you're required to inform your health insurer when you buy it.
Edit: Oh my, I've just discovered the bacon wiki: http://bacon.wikia.com
The talk surrounding Huawei has been going for years, even during the last presidency. To the best of my knowledge, I don't think anyone has actually produced any evidence at all Huawei has actually done anything wrong. However, sanction-breaking is a different beast to infrastructure-level espionage, so maybe they actually have some evidence this time.
This is good news. Microsoft's slow release cadence and insistence that each new browser version will not run on older versions of Windows has causes nothing but pain for us devs. I find it faintly ludicrous that MS was somehow unable to keep pace with Google and Mozilla.
Also, I'm not overly concerned about the reduction in competing browser engines as the companies with a vested interest in the Chromium project should keep it from stagnating into another IE6. I could be wrong though, and they might all become puppet states in the greater Googleocracy.
The Highlander TV show probably cost me my A-Levels thanks to being on at 11pm. It hasn’t aged that well, but I loved it.
And so, SQL Server. Yay. Nothing really exciting for us developers. I wonder if the intern has finished updating Master Data Services. Still need Silverlight? Oh dear.
After 15 years or so and with the utmost respect to Mono, they finally achieved cross platform development with Core.
I have little doubt that the full framework’s failure to go cross platform had a lot to do with Microsoft being... well Microsoft and putting Windows First. And that worked out so well...
I’ve had the same hotmail address for around 17 years and I’ve used it to sign up for *everything*.
I get hardly any spam at all (maybe 10 a week) and right now most of it is because I bought a domain and stuck the address on Whois.
I can’t speak for other peoples’ experience, but I’m very happy with the lack of spamage (although Hotmail is my main weakness in my attempt to be data-slurping-behemoth-free).
