Having lopped off the heads of MCSA/MCSE by retiring these certifications, Microsoft really ought to be giving something back. But their new certifications are for Azure solutions only and ignore on-prem environments and also ignore people who use MS products in cloud providers other than Azure.
"Applications based on WebKit or Blink, such as Safari and Chrome, support a number of special WebKit extensions to CSS. These extensions are generally prefixed with -webkit-. Most -webkit- prefixed properties also work with an -apple- prefix. A few are prefixed with -epub-.
Note: Avoid using on websites. These properties will only work in WebKit applications."
Bit straw-mannish there. Informality is fine, silliness and snark are fine. But the same thing every time... yawn.
you'd quickly get bored and go elsewhere.
That's exactly what happens because of these banalities. In fact it became a turn off about 4 years ago.
If you're here for original comedy with every article
Not asking for that at all. Just not seeing the exact same gag on every article for years on end.
"Idiot Tax" was amusing at first but it's really really tired now. Ancient recycled old rubbish soon loses its comedy value and makes the writer look lazy.
Other banalities includes: "crysis", "popcorn", "goes up to 11", "rounded corners" and many more. I wonder if the people using these trites imagine that they are being witty and original when they put them into a comment.
As a kid I saved and got myself a used OM10 to replace my Zenit E. I was so proud of my Olympus, even though I could only afford the one lens I took it everywhere, though in those days I had to be economic with my use because of the cost of film and processing. I'm sure I still have the OM10, the best entry-level SLR at the time.
Yes, I like it the way it is. Outages are rare for me (1 in 2 years) and I have a reciprocal deal with my neighbour - if he loses his ADSL or I my cable we can use each other's WiFi. He's been on mine way more times than I his.
I would prefer an excuse to sit in my garden, but last resort 4G hotspot will mean I never get that good fortune.
I was waiting for Macbook pro to ship with a working keyboard before buying, then WSL2 appeared and covered off a particular need on Win10, so I don't need to change yet. I will look again at Macbook pro when the ARM machines ship, and as you say, they've been shaken down in the wild a bit.
Apple is following linux which is already very comfortably available on ARM. It is inevitable that Win10 will follow.
Under the English feudal system, serfs could be bought and sold with the manorial or church land they worked on, villeins could be bought and sold as individuals. Effectively slaves under another name and not free men unless they could buy themselves out.
I am very proud of the branch of my family that were dirt-poor country peasants in Bedfordshire. However, notwithstanding my DNA stock that came through enslavement, plague, famine, war and enclosures , I am considered to be part of an imperial tyrant people. How about that?
I do recall Joey Deacon at school. Impersonations of him were aimed at anyone who become the target of ridicule and the name "Joey" became an insult.
Sad, but kids and all that. Often it is low self esteem that causes some people to feel the need to put someone else down to feel better about themselves. I explain to my kids that this was the motivation for bullying, that they had something very wrong somewhere in their life. Could be some of the explanation for racism.
I did try out pycharm, but binned it quickly because it’s a fat bloated wallowing thing part coded in java.
Eclipse similarly overdone, so there is overhead wasted in messing with the ide.
I am increasingly drawn to lightweight, simplified tools that don’t get in the way.
The PPL training fleet is gradually being replaced by the modern machines, but there was something a bit charming about fiddling with carb heat and mixture. Although I do like the security offered by a BRS parachute and would enjoy going places in something like an SR22, all my hours for the last 4 years have been on a Super Cub purely for its charm and flying for pleasure appeal. If I could afford to fly a DH82 then I would.
I can't help thinking that the case for an electric engine would be a motor glider, could get away with a 10 minute battery.
The Guardian is not a reliable source for good information, it’s the the equivalent gutter rag to the mail for the other end of the political moron spectrum.
It seems that Dopey Bob was entrapped, having been invited by the journalists on the pretence of discussing some matters, but the plan was to create a story about an MP ignoring social distancing.
Bob was a dope for walking into it, but it locally it does seem to have backfired on the people involved. Hopefully the public are getting wise to and sick of the media ordure.
By the way, Seely is not in charge of the app.
For full disclosure I'm not British, just a massive Anglophile being tested severely by the misguided filth being spewed in British public discourse.
The trick is to understand that what you read on public discussion forums, social media etc is not reflecting real life. Social media like twitter etc tends to attract comments from nutters and focuses them together making it appear that they are more prevalent than they really are.
Looking back at the Nokia 3310 HMD reboot, a 3G version followed the 2G only one after about 6 months.
Also the price was £49.99 but O2 were soon doing them for £20, which is where I got my backup phone.
2G phones are no good for Three already. Vodafone have suggested sunsetting their 3G in a couple years.
I think the medium of the web and social media exposes the nutters and the hopelessly thick and gullible for us all to see, but they’ve always existed. I think I preferred it when I didn’t know they existed. Ignorance is bliss.
Oh yes, the ignorant,
We asked Upton when we might expect to see a 16GB variant, but have yet to receive a response.
Didn’t ask in the right place, from the official blog comments:
“ I’m going to wait for the 16 GB varian to come out. I hope that it wouldn’t go above $100, fingers crossed.”

I think you’re unlikely to ever see this.
