Re: That's why Facebook bought Instagram
That's actually the goal of the Mastodon project - run your own social media that can talk to all other similar platforms: https://joinmastodon.org/

This has been happening for ages for me with my AOC 23" monitors, but only when they're switched over to their VGA inputs (work's Dell docking station). Sometimes my USB speaker will crackle and be re-detected by the system at the same time.
All methods to alleviate this have failed - I've filed into the body of the chair and wired a curly cord from there to the radiator pipe, and done the same with a mesh of wiring under my floor protector, as well as removing the floor protector entirely - still occurs with no change in frequency.
In rare cases, my router will even shit itself during these instances, requiring a manual restart - I've been convinced this was ESD-related but I just can't stop it happening. I'm using the Ikea Markus chair, for reference.
Call it self-celebrating, but I've always written all the JS I use myself, with the exception of the odd tool such as CKEditor. If I find a snippet I need online, I pull it apart and rewrite it to be sure I understand it and it adheres to my own standards.
I'm also careful to also only use JS when something's not possible with native HTML or server-side code. Surely this is just a part of becoming a good coder?
I can think of one very good business use case - replacement of monitors.
Imagine having an AR headset synced up to a Windows box, and being able to tell it "create a new monitor of this size and place it >here<", and instantly having a new display, without the fuss of cables and additional power.
THIS is the advancement I'm waiting for, and would welcome most heartily.
"In fact, since 2010 there is no difference in the age of our US workforce, but the skills profile of our employees has changed dramatically due to our heavy investments in skills and retraining."
A cynic might say that if the age of the workforce hasn't changed in 8 years, that they're removing the oldest and hiring the youngest every year to maintain this status quo?
Which would also result in the skills profile of the employees changing dramatically...
I agree - I'm in IT support, and part of my work is having to assume remote control of computers. Direct them to logmein123.com, they fail half the time (all users are not created equally) and end up on malicious sites, most of the time found in Google's own search results, and I've even had a user get two separate dodgy infections in the course of me trying to direct them to the correct website.
There is so much more that could be done but I suspect Google enjoys the ad revenue.
Downvotes ahoy here, but does nobody else think Microsoft Security Essentials does a damn good job compared to pretty much every other similar piece of software out there? I know it's built into Windows 8 and perhaps slightly unnecessary for newer PCs, but it's one of the best I've ever come across.
