Is it because they leave spam links in their profile/signature?

It's been a while since I watched them, but I recall Scott Chacon's git videos as being pretty good.  A google should net you some that you can check out to see if his style works for you.

I have half a thought of buying one just so I can return it because it doesn't work with the coffee 'pods' I have.  Companies shouldn't be  able to get away with this kind of crap, and that seems to be a concrete way to let them know.

Looks like admuncher 4 has been releases as freeware now.

I hope this works out for them and users - whatever it is that's supposed to happen to make this a success.  But I honestly don't have a great deal of optimism.

Even if it might not be acceptable in a legal proceeding today, things like this are important stepping stones to getting to that point.

they come with a brew your own coffee basket that's basically just a reusable pod

The last time I tried to use the official Keurig reusable pod that I have (which wasn't included with the machine, but a separate purchase, if I recall correctly), it wouldn't fit because of some plastic 'tabs' that seemed to exist only to interfere with the reusable pod (which again is an official Keurig-branded pod).  It definitely worked in the first Keurig unit we had, but was inconvenient, so it didn't get much use.  When I tried to use it in a newer Keurig that we since bought, it won't fit in the machine at all anymore.

Anyway, it seems like they don't want you to use even their own reusable pods.

I wonder what it could do to jinx up your coffee?

Make it taste like the sludge in my work's lunchroom?

Andreas Antonopolous is signing copies of his book "Mastering Bitcoin"...

I got a kick out of this disclaimer:

The author wants you to know that his handwriting is that of someone who has typed almost everything (including grocery lists) for the past 20 years. This means your message might be as legible as a prescription note from a doctor (not at all). Near illegibility serves as proof of authenticity!
12  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: NaNoWriMo Scrivener Offer on: October 09, 2014, 12:33:36 AM
Thanks for those links.  It looks very interesting. I don't think it'll replace Surfulater as my keeper of my universe of random bits of information, but I think Scrivener has a good chance at managing the various assortment of artifacts related to work projects.

I think I'll give it a go during the extended trial period they're offering now.
13  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: NaNoWriMo Scrivener Offer on: October 08, 2014, 05:52:58 PM
This might be heresy in this thread since it has nothing to do with writing novels, but when I look at the webpage for Scrivener, it looks like it might be a good general purpose note taking tool.  Maybe even a task manager (index cards on a bulletin board is a pretty good real-world way to manage tasks).

Is anyone using it like this (or tried and failed) that can give some opinions?

15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Samsung pays MS $1 billion in royalties for using Android. wtf. on: October 06, 2014, 03:14:59 PM
I don't know how much comes from Samsung, but MS definitely makes a ton of money licensing intellectual property to Android device makers:

  - http://www.businessinside...nt-royalties-2013-11?op=1
  - http://www.fosspatents.co...ces-its-21st-android.html

Update: a link to some Samsung details, including documents filed in court by MS: http://www.fosspatents.co...osoft-over-1-billion.html

Apparently one of the patents that applies to Android devices is the patent on long file name support in FAT file systems.  I'm sure that there are a number of other ones.

P.S. The intellectual level of this site really went down these last weeks; I very much hope my reading experience here will improve by remaining posters striving to amend their argumentation... and if they don't have got any, by their refraining from posting to begin with. Thank you so very much.

I, for one, shall indeed strive to restrain from posting any communication here that impairs your reading experience.  You are very welcome.

The new Windows, which it's calling Windows 10. The company looks at the new number (yes, it skipped a number) ...

Well, no wonder that Win9 will be free.
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: File too long for Recycle Bin on: September 27, 2014, 03:20:07 PM
If I recall right, Shift-Delete in explorer will delete a file without putting it in the recycle bin which might workaround the problem.

Or you can delete the file from a command line window which doesn't know anything about the recycle bin.

Most of that video overstayed its welcome, but the bit at 0:25-0:32 is priceless.

It's like a real life Bond super villain business plan. And this is just the kind of phrase such a character might utter: “discerning government and corporate buyers”

Nice - thanks for posting and welcome to DC.

Only problem is that I was hoping that "JPEG Stripper" might make my photos more interesting.  But unfortunately, it just strips meta-data.

23  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Sublime Text Giveaway on: September 14, 2014, 07:06:20 PM
Interestingly, the Sublime Text forums are broken for a couple of days now. Intended?

This kind of thing seems to happen every now and again with the Sublime Text forum, but usually it's back in a day or so. The forum seems to be largely an afterthought for Jon (the ST dev). I get the feeling it's an annoyance that he only begrudgingly lets exist.

ST fans make it a useful forum in spite of that.

Low End Talk, their sister site, is a good place to do any research on a provider, eg. FortaTrust

And one thing that's clear from reading Low end Talk for a bit is that the low end VPS market is littered with sketchy vendors.  There are vendors who provide what they say they will; but there are a lot who don't, who are fly-by-nights, or are simply in over their heads.

Low end VPS is a real buyer beware situation.

All I can say is that I'm glad you didn't get stuck for 394.41 like poor Virgil.  Yikes!
