Submitting bug report: "Option hides even extensions of file types unknown to the user"
"$User : "Wait, what? So all this time I could've loaded the file into $Software? I took over this job four months ago and no one ever told me! I've been entering everything by hand into the application! So how do I import this .xml thing?"
I assumed she didn't have it checked.
I might have been wrong.
It's checked by default, IIRC. It's one of the first ways I remember to set up those options on a new computer.
Why do it alone when you can do it with a sexy friend?
How do you think my hair got dirty in the first place?
I don't think you're meant to use that as shampoo
but look at how effective it is as a moisturizer!
Hmm, that's a good point. It wouldn't be my first choice, but if it works, it works
If that's your opinion you havent tried it. It's the absolute best thing for a shiny and healthy shine to your fur. Not only that but the application process is a billion times more fun than those other moisturizers.
@heterodox reminds me of listening to a certain ADHD Belarusian speak Russian. At the time I could barely understand normal people, and this dude was speaking a million words per second ( not really) and clipping the endings, jamming his words together. It was exhausting.
Reminds me of a 5hr COBOL class I took in Jr college (back in 1981). It started at 8a on Sat (once a week). I got off work at 7a (yeah, 3rd shift). The prof had such a thick accent it was really hard to understand him. Which was good - it kept me from falling asleep!
Same with e.g. Get Office, where it seems like a lot more users may appreciate the convenience of one-click installation of the Office subscription tied to their Microsoft account when it used to require finding the disc/downloading the installer again, finding the product key... etc.
Which is true, right up until Get Office is a horribly coded piece of crap and still gets installed (and doesn't remove itself) regardless of if Office has actually been Get-ed. And reinstalls itself every update...
If I were naive I would blame it on an Apps inability to detect if other apps were installed. But that would be just stupid, right?
Well, as far as I remember, there may be a long asymptomatic period between the early phase (where it may be hard to diagnose if the circular rash does not appear, because the other symptom are not very specific) and the late phases. Since chronic just means it lasts long, it fits that definition. However since the phase is asymptomatic, it can't be diagnosed in any other way then by finding the bacteria in blood sample.
In the later phase, it can also cause chronic symptoms. However, this is just the symptoms persisting even after the bacteria are killed, because the damage the disease caused can't be easily repaired. This is what the charlatans in question improperly treat as if it was still a disease.
For as long as anyone could remember, there had always been two server rooms: the Cool Room and the Hot Room. The Cool Room was exactly what you’d expect a server room at a mid-sized technology services firm to be: floor-to-ceiling racks along the walls filled with various servers, battery backups,...
I've used Spotify quite a bit, and it's so far been the best of the lot.
Pandora wants me to listen to emopop no matter how much I tell it I don't want to, and Spotify has introduced me to more music than Pandora has.
However, some of the things they have, they only have like one song of. Like Megababe (A band that's easier to buy than pirate. Who would have believed it!?). So far the only reliable place I can get music I like is, therefore, the Windows Store. And yet Groove Music makes you pay to turn the radio on at all, and won't let me choose indie bands I know they have as my interests, because the interests page has no search.
No, it's not a good thing.
I, and by extension the apps I run on my behalf, should be free to do whatever I want on my device.
Once you resolve the user-app trust issues in one of the usual ways, there should not be any limitations left.
No, it's not a good idea. It exposes the user to all kinds of threats, attacks that could make the device unusable. Especially in culture where people just click "Accept" to all permission requests, this is a Bad Idea (tm).
If you want to do anything with your device, then root it and you can go wild. However that's not as a great idea as it sounds. You (as a manufacturer) don't want horror stories spoiling your marketing from people who simply got what they had coming.
@accalia Being the good law-abiding citizen, it only upgraded the packages which could be upgraded without uninstalling other packages, which meant that the system was half-upgraded (but still somehow managed to reboot) and my only way was forward, finishing the upgrade and trudging through whatever conflicts were left for me to solve. Talk about forced upgrades.
well, then, i mean I agree, this kind of shit shouldn't be followed, but if it doesn't count, why the hell is it included in the printout of your "wholly good, wholly truthful and wholly worth following" book
It's not that it doesn't count. It was a covenant formed with the Jews during a period of time when having wars would be necessary. The Law wasn't a set of rules leading to perfect behavior. It was a set of rules that best fit the time and produced the best society for the context and circumstance.
No. Galatians 3 is pretty clear that the Law's purpose is to bring us to Christ. The Law was purposely written to be impossible for us to keep in order to emphasize that faith, and not works, is the Way to avoid condemnation. See also Romans (especially chapters 3 and 4).
the only difference is that christianity was forced to get significantly more sane
Yeah. Jesus came up with a new set of guidelines for producing a better fit religious culture for modern times. People were really upset that Jesus did that, so much so that they hung him.
Yeah, he made the rules easier to follow by stripping away the traditions that had built up around them.
And then pointed out that following the Law meant even keeping absolute control over your own thoughts and emotions, so that looking with lust is the same as adultery and hate = murder. OH, WAIT........
Why is a god not capable of changing the ruleset to fit the times?
It's not that He can't. It's that God wouldn't. Abrogation is not something that can be found within the pages of the Christian Bible. On the contrary, God is described as never changing His requirements for mankind's behavior.
It shows that people were unable to follow the law, or any set of laws, due to imperfection.
It shows how God guided Israel through that period of time.
Yep. They couldn't properly obey the Law then; we can't properly obey the Law now. The Law is our truancy officer to keep bringing us back again and again to make us realize that we need a Savior; we cannot do what we want (no matter how good we or others think we are) and expect good to ultimately come from it.
is the same kind of abomination as any other religion, even islam.
The whole point of your post is to show that Christian is just as bad as Islam, and yet you only proved that Christianity was able to adapt and Islam was not.
Which makes for a really funny paradox. The Christian God is unchanging and steadfast, yet Christianity and whatever culture it encounters have mutually adapted to each other (except for the core part of Christianity, which is concerned with the core of Man).
And the Muslim god is described within the Koran as fickle and unknowable, yet Islam demands that all cultures submit to it.
could do it "properly": split the GUI part of it and the "service" part of it, and then you can put the service part in RunServices and the GUI part in the Startup applications. The application would start when the computer started, and the GUI part that they need to interact with would start when someone logs in.
This is the current plan, but I'm not well versed in inter-process communication, so currently writing up endpoints on the http server portion for all the important metrics that are actually cared about.
@Onyx Konami also fired Koji "IGA" Igarashi when they decided Castlevania wasn't mainstream enough and decided to turn it into a God of War clone instead with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Which did OK for one game but then crashed and burned after the second.
For those of you who don't know who that is, he was heavily involved in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and producer of all Castlevania games after that (except Circle of the Moon) until Konami fired him.
Side note: It actually concerns me that Metroid: Samus Returns is based on the engine from the "midquel" Lords of Shadow game, Mirror of Fate.
and I'm sure Windows can too without any special driver or program installed.
That's why hardware installation instructions always tell you to install the drivers before plugging in the hardware. If you do it the other way around, you would discover windows actually has the drivers as well and then not install the bloatwarehandy helper applications
