Another problem with speech is that it's real-time. You can't go and make a cup of tea, come back and read what you've missed. Also you can't converse and have different conversations with mutliple people simultaniously.

since talking is alot easier than typing...
No way! I type 100x faster than I can talk. For some reason talking seems to require more brainpower for me. I hate it, I always stay away from stuff like teamspeak :D

Interesting,... Microsoft on the GameMaker studio boat,...

What's the catch?

I can't help but wonder how flexible this will be and how fast (or slow) it will be.
I mentioned slow because .NET was mentioned in the article,... :p
And after having seen the system requirements for Vista, I'm afraid to find out the requirements for this one.

Your desktop is interesting, btw, app.

Interesting design of the front page btw :)

General Software Discussion / Re: Windows XP Myths
« on: July 19, 2006, 05:05 PM »
Rover makes a good point, there probably comparing windows OS vulns with linux+all apps that run on it vulns, that's just wrong.

And the only reason why there are more reported vulnerabilities for linux applications in the first place, is because they are easyer to spot, since it's all open source. On linux they usually get spotted, reported, and fixed quite fast, which adds to the security.
On windows they aren't usually spotted all that easily unless you want to dig through a bunch of assembly and do random penetration tests. And when they are spotted you're at the mercy of the original developers to wait for a fix, while on linux you can apply a patch to the original source code and recompile.

That comparison is so wrong for so many reasons and i probably only covered not even half of it :p

Living Room / Re: WHy is microsoft software so unreliable?
« on: July 19, 2006, 04:35 PM »
Microsoft's answer would be that it's all because of other non-microsoft software you have installed. :D

The problem is probably that Microsoft is too big, and they have a horrible business policy.
I'm sure they have both very good and very bad programmers, but when you have very large teams, the chance of the few very bad programmers doing something horrible increase significantly.
The other problem is that their business policy is to eliminate all compitition, so naturally, it they put in a few crashes into their software here and there that they can blame on third party software, that's all for the better. :P

Yeah in Linux it's easy to get bitten by the tweaking bug, just because you CAN. I've been using gentoo for the longest time and lots of time was always spent on compiling and configuring etc,... though usually once I have it as I want I can start being productive. On my other machine I installed ubuntu(dapper), which pretty much worked out of the box, I didn't even need to compile any drivers into my kernel. So that saves some time, offcourse now i'm stuck with a gnome desktop. I always used either fluxbox or afterstep. I haven't gotten around to changing it yet, I might actually switch back to afterstep later, but it works for now. I'm not gonna start fiddling around too much again now that I'm finally being somewhat productive ;D

Aren't we a silly bunch. We love *nix but we hate Linux. I don't know if we even know what we love or hate. :D
There's allot of stuff in that list that I'd switch around tho, that's for sure, but that's just me :)

I hate lifehacker with a passion for example, I dunno why, I get this big yuppy-alert vibe from it :P Maybe I just don't like them telling me how unorganised I am ;)

hehe, that one's funny,..

We hate:
when people quote stats like this

#donationcoder on EFnet

/j #donationcoder

an alternative server that usually works:

for more servers, check the EFnet website. ( )


But it seems like that's overrated considering there are still often big rendering differences between browsers.

Yeah,... I'm just thinking of a bright future, where, some day, browsers use the standard, render everything in the same way, and don't accept 'bad' html.

- Back to reality,- however,... I'll have to accept the fact that *HTML is hopelessly broken for now. :P

Does it generate validatable xhtml code?

Cool! Seeing opensource libs and components with such a rich feature set is a bit rare in the bcb/delphi communities. Awesome find!

You don't have to feel alone, after my day of playing with ruby, I couldn't agree more.

Things can start looking very messy with stuff like multiple assignments, and anti-intuitive expressions.

Perl still seems somewhat more intuitive to me, but maybe that's just because I've used it too much. But I still wouldn't wanna trade it in for c++.

I just tried ruby on rails, and my first impression seems that it's all Quick and Easy as long as you don't have to write something real. As soon as you want to start doing more advanced stuff you end up coding about just as much as you would in perl. Plus, after having read a bunch of tutorials and having tried a few simple database apps, I have to agree that the syntax is absolutely horrible. Not for me at all.

Yep, JoyOfTech already made a cartoon about it:

Very interesting. Is there any speed difference between a compiled exe and running the script over the perl exe? Is it really compiled? Or is it just script+interpreter in an exe?

Yeah i'll have to agree with f0dder on this one.
It's really annoying. I keep opening things I don't want to open with either one of the two presented mouse gestures. And the timer just makes things too slow.

Personally, the more buttons the merrier, which is probably why I'm a keyboard freak.
I HATED them apple mice with only one button. It'd drive me totally CRAZY to have a mouse without buttons!

Like App said,... AVG-free has always worked fine for me. it has a very small memory footprint and it's not bloaty, and it hasn't been for a while (knock on wood).

Some scientists have been saying that, eventually the moon will drop on us.
 - or they used to anyways. It seems now they are saying it's moving away from earth. They never make up their mind, do they.

That's not a planet killer if you ask me. The planet seemed very much alive after impact. Only them annoying little things that used to live on it weren't. It's like a planet-pest-control thing.
