WibbleMe

Here's a tip Microsoft... stop changing your apps layout (such as office) it pisses the end user off instead spend money on "Skin" to make them look awesome, clearly something lacking with the shitty metro theme, I was making blocks when I was 3.

Re: Wordpress doesn't use React

Wordpress spits out post as JSON with WP REST (url.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts) and also uses .js for updates/plugins interaction

There are so many .js platforms out there that it wont take them long to migrate to something very similar, like Angulars MIT licence as opposed to Apache License 2.0 for React.js

Police camera inaction? Civil liberties group questions forces' £23m body-cam spend

WibbleMe
Bronze badge

Yes the Civil Liberties of a thug that says I did not spit in the face of a police officer to the Judge, would a body camera prove this, on the same site a camera can raise the standard of policing.

There is a certain kind of person that studies Civil Liberties, the same kid of people that want to give paedophiles protection and radicalists rights to stay in the UK

Im considering doing an e-petition making it a requirement for capatch to be used on all UK chat services to stop fake bots. This concept of AI must be really hurting the industry with people frighted to talk in case its just silicon.

It would be interesting to see a survey that only includes servers that are around for more than 12 months or clumlative hours, something tells me that a lot of these windows distros may only be short term usage

Re: about 12 per cent of servers run non-Windows OSs!?

Perhaps for security reasons people hide the server type tag on a Linux distro as part of PCI compliance so you have no idea what server a website is running on.

Did anyone bother to count the Linux Kernal in Android phones? Something like 432 million smartphones in 2016

When you build an extension onto your house do not wait until its almost built that you want it somewhere else and a different size. Things can be changed in a project but it makes one hell of a complex mess.
