@kt_ PHP doesn't have an Option Base instruction because it starts at 0 like true programming languages should, and it's trying to fix some of the rest of its WTF. Something that VB only really managed when it became a different syntax on top of .NET rather than its original self.
@the_quiet_one I don't delete most emails. I just read/mark read. I only delete spam emails.
Ah, I see. Interestingly, part of my insane habit is due to the fact that I can visually see which emails I've read and, therefore, which are "more" important. But, that doesn't mean I don't use the star to mark emails. That's for "really important."
I know it defies logic and when I think about it, it's a ridiculous system, but for whatever reason it doesn't bother me enough to change. That's all I'll say about it, though. I think I've triggered you enough.
I dis-label emails that have been dealt with, effectively "deleting" them. Other than that, unread is un-dealt-with, Star is "Dealt with for now, follow up or keep in mind for later". Of course, read status applies to starred items too.
I know of multiple games this could be describing already, but Murdered: Soul Suspect (which Blakey named) isn't one of them. Although, in fairness I never finished that game and both of the other games I've played with this plot didn't reveal it until the end.
I meant it in more of a "who stole the cookies from the cookie jar" thing except it would have more severe crimes like murder and tax evasion.
I played a game recently where the person investigating 5 murders committed all 5 murders... although, to be fair, he didn't realize he was doing it (yay curses?).
Looks like the message text is actually a query that was being passed to a database but isn't anymore or is escaped when perhaps it wasn't before? Didn't look that carefully but it's pretty funny.
My guess was that they've added a layer which strips out single quotes, for safety of course, perhaps in conjunction with parameterisation (because why protect against sqli in just one way when you can do it two ways at the same time?). So instead of 'text here' || chr(13) || chr(10) || 'more text' it's all getting chucked into a big string.
@e4tmyl33t Yet another thing making the notifications area useless. This morning I had a "notification" from a video game saying "did you get your free log in bonus today?"
Yeah, I have a high proportion of my games set to "block all notifications from this app" for precisely this reason. Games are there for my enjoyment, not to pester me; I'll decide when to play them tyvm.
No matter what you see in the movies, 90% of scientific research is done in offices, by guys sitting at desks pounding away at computers and reading very, very thick reports written by people who never took a Humanities class.
A low growl eminates from the wolf's throat, as if saying to @Tsaukpaetra to know their place, before returning to the side of Sunless. "He may be jealous that I was fighting without him. He likes to fight just as much as I do, and we work quite well together. Hopefully we can all work so well together. Again, apologies for his behaviour." She places a hand on Herald's head, relieved that he's by her side and amused at his actions. Herald looks at Biggen, and you could swear he looks a bit smug.
The collapse was due to banks ignoring the red flags credit bureaus had for the people they were issuing loans for
The banks thought they'd found a magical way to avoid the risk by packaging mechanisms for the credit so that statistical mechanisms applied meaning that random failures to pay on a part of the loan wouldn't cause too much trouble. The problem was that the mechanisms ignored the possibility of correlated risk (e.g., due to an economic downturn) meaning that the actual compound risk was higher than was stated by the credit bureaux.
It was a hack. It was a hack of the statistics that didn't hold once there was a confidence hiccup, and that in turn brought down the whole calamity.
Excel runs scripts after users clicks "Allow". News at 11!
Excel also performs HTTP requests without any confirmation:
No, it does not. Excel 2010 does not support IMPORTXML and the article only talks about Google Sheets. If Excel does support some method for doing HTTP requests, my guess is that it would either prompt to run scripts when you open the file, or prompt about a cross-site request (local file loading from the web) before it makes the request.
From the article:
Well recall that while we cannot run macros in Google Sheets, we can absolutely run formulas. And formulas don’t have to be limited to simple arithmetic. In fact, are there any Google Sheets commands available in formulas that can send data elsewhere? Why yes, there seem to be quite a few. But lets take a look at IMPORTXML in particular.
I already feel dirty for defending Microsoft, but let's not spread misinformation.
Field injection is fine. Field injection into static final fields is
Why? This isn't some corporation whose new fad is hating constructors, this is an environment that's loading plugins and doesn't want your class to have to extend their class. Again, once you're over the deep end of transforming class bytecode during loading, there's not much you can do to worsen the state.
But you could just use constructor injection and have none of these problems
I mean, I guess you could use setter injection, but then it's a little non-obvious why the methods are there if there are no explicit calls.
I use constructor injection when I'm using a language that makes it simple, like Kotlin. I use field injection in Java, because I'm lazy and it doesn't hurt anyone.
Your implementation of the updater mechanism is not my problem.
Case in point, we were looking at a program launcher that updated itself in accordance to a manifest file located on some E3 bucket thing (served over http). By that manifest it could tell what files were therefore out of date and then fetch new replacements for each file as needed to sync up the local installation cache of the launcher.
@ben_lubar Okay, so, this seems to have worked. Now I have another problem: I can't reselect the field.
We're using something that gives us material design things (The inputs are all <input mdInput .../>) for some reason, so we have those fancy inputs where the field label slides into the box when it's inactive as a placeholder. But when I call .focus() on an element, it immediately loses focus again, though the next element gets selected if you press tab.
This won't work at all, and is probably the cause of the original blur problem problem. Can't even get a good result from Google
Cy bristled a bit at the word "deviltry", but fought to keep his face and body language impassive. He knew that being too brusque with trying to counter the Captain's statement wouldn't help his cause any... even if the Lawgiver didn't automatically give credit to what the Captain claimed, he was well liked in town and Cy shouldn't antagonize him needlessly.
"You said the burn mark was the size of your hand, correct? Which is much bigger than the end of the quarterstaff I swung at the horse. So, isn't it possible that someone else had planted a small alchemical pouch on the horse, and that's what left the burn mark?"
because they brake, especially the turning knobs, dirt and humidity hides under the knob and ultimately one of the knobs will fail. In many cases causing a need to replace more then one and when you have replaced them all you are already halfway past a complete new stove.
The vast majority of my weirdly vivid dreams involve
Trying to do something (walking, running) and being unable to, which feels incredibly frustrating. In some instances I'm trying to stop doing something, like in one dream I was flying and unable to get down on the ground or even bouncing on the floor and unable to stop. Or sometimes running away from something.
Realizing that I'm dreaming, then "waking up" into another dream. Or trying to wake up but failing.
The second one happens all the fucking time. Tonight I must have falsely woken up at least 10 times (I think some of them might have been real). I even "woke up" and wrote my 3 previous dreams down on my dream phone to remember them later.
The gen 3 remakes is what reawakened my interest in Pokémon. So, yeah, those are good games! And Mightyena is awesomely cute/cool! And it's a good thing it did, so I got to experience SM and the awesome story it had.
In other news, I am nearing a 100% completion of the original gen 3. As in having a complete pokédex and maximum upgraded trainer cards across all games.
I never played the original games.
My kids all did. I remember last minute online ordering of Pokemon Yellow (or Gold, whatever was the thing) for all 4 of them as Christmas presents.
My brother got pokemon red. We used to share the game boy so I was pretty pissed off that it only had one save slot. I once played past the second gym in a single session, with only my starter pokemon that was ridiculously over leveled by that point because I was getting bored of the start of the game and was challenging myself to weird play styles
You could also try to use a photo cell/diode, if you can mount it beneath the shoes. Essentially, when you put the foot down, all light to it will be blocked; if you lift the foot, there will be some ambient light entering the photo sensor. Add a weak LED next to it if you plan to use this in a really dark environment; I guess you can use IR if you go the LED route, so it won't be visible. You should be able to get these quite easily, and the cost would be not much more than $1.
That might be cheap/easy enough to just try out. After that, I'd probably go for a force sensor, mostly because that seems fairly reliable and easy to set up. Adafruit has some for $7...
