With the unicode sorcery they used at RegEx match open tags except XHTML self-contained tags they could even use the logo with a->z arrow as the TLD. Who types URLs nowadays anyway?
I had to check the calendar to see if today is Monty Python Appreciation Day* and this group was celebrating with a sketch (EVERYBODY EXPECTS the Heathrow Drone Liberation Commando), but no, it seems they were really planning to do it!
* every day for some of us
Add an easily removable protective film OVER the protection layer with something like "OK, you can remove this, but please don't remove the next one under it".
If this does not work, consider adding more easily removable protective film layers, and so on.
I see your Player and raise you Leslie, Kelly & John Ford Coley's "Come Back to Me":
Do you think of me. Do you feel the cold? Or is somebody keeping you warm. Like I used to do?
I wish that you knew that I want you back here in my arms.
And if this foolishness ends... Do you think you could love me again?
I work in the CS department of a university in a large, coffee-and-samba oriented country that shall remain unnamed.
Some of the grad students used to have a large metal cabinet as a divisor in their shared office. Besides being festooned with stickers and year-old notes nobody had they keys for it -- they just assumed it was a convenient piece of metal used to hid their screens from others' views.
When we changed offices we had to move it, and nobody claimed ownership. Being curious and irresponsible, I decided to apply the adequate amount of force to open the doors. Inside there were a bunch of SCSI cables and terminators, 8mm tape drives for a backup driver, a huge box of SIMMs (total amount of memory: < 2gb), random pieces of SUN gear, lots of ZIP disks and drives and a box of 8-inch floppy disks.
Shame on me, I kept it all. The 8-inch floppy disks are a funny conversation starter (hey, babe, want to see my 8-incher) and also a embarrassing conversation stopper (either "huh...." or "how old are you again?")
The real bad guys are those who design complex forms with the buttons "Submit" and "Cancel" very close to each other. Click "Cancel" by mistake and then you have to enter everything again.
Won't somebody think about the children and the fat-fingered users such as myself?
I guess most of the professors and researchers ("the noble calling") are not really concerned about what the industry actually needs.
There are plenty of blogs, videos, tutorials, relentlessly advertised conferences that seems to happen all the time (cough cough) that will teach "just what the industry needs", with different levels of abstraction/details/dumbing down/uselessness caused by choosing a single language or platform which API already changed in two months. Pick one, or several. And let academia do what academia ought to be doing: expanding the frontiers.
Utter brilliant; I'll definitely be ripping off your comment and will randomly throwing it into polite conversation.
Nice sermon, Reverend, but 'using the cloud' is nothing more than putting your balls in someone else's vice and hoping they know which way to twist the handle.
