I'd advise not to vote for Bernie. He'll turn America into Roib by the end of the first term. :dopefish A likely story, considering the president doesn't even have that much power. What I would expect to see is more vetoing of the one-sided, corporate-lobbied legislation America seems to prefer tod...

Yeah, Bernie Sanders is the first candidate in forever who might actually represent the average Joe.

It also looks like he has a decent shot against Hillary. If anyone here can vote, I'd suggest taking a good, long look at him.

As always, it's up to whoever steps up to the plate. However, Fleexy has indicated some free time, so it might be a good opportunity to pick up a more cross-platform language as well. Additional languages are generally easier to learn, and on top of that python is often seen as one of the better tea...

Python is just an example - though, as languages go, a relatively straightforward one. My concern is more with the first paragraph. A few years ago, we wanted to use and customize a C# project. It was pretty much a nonstarter. The features used did not work in Mono, and the only alternative was to p...

.NET seems like a huge dependency, and though parts of it have been open-sourced, I haven't heard anything about people using it on Linux. Is it really necessary? You don't want to be stuck with needing a Windows Server (like I've experienced for a previous project). As long as it doesn't require un...

I need to get back into physics, I think. 1.) 1 second == 299,792,458 meters 2.) Then the conversation factor in front of time, now where we use the same units for time as we do distance, then the speed of light is "1", just like b = 1 when we use the same units to measure the x-axis and the y-axis....

My primary issue is that one has to get used to an entirely different workflow to start using tiling WMs effectively. I'm not asking them to cater to my exact needs, but simply to take into account what most people are already used to. I don't see why certain sacrifices have to be made to switch to...

Hmm, I'm getting the impression that you want a lot of control with minimal configuration. Those desires don't seem particularly compatible, unless you were fortunate enough to have someone program exactly your style of WM. For me, XMonad came close (at least at first, nearly every time I wanted som...

Thanks for posting this! As a student in math, it always bugged me that people treat Time like it's Depth or Width. I always preferred to separate time and spatial dimensions. Check out Fine Structure . (Reader's note: I skipped the first chapter until there was enough context to understand it, aro...

Ah, I used i3 for a month once. Was good, but the programs I was using simply weren't built for it and as a result the tiling was more of a hindrance than anything useful. I just tend to put space hogs or those programs that lack consistency between sizes on their own workspace. Even for those, how...

Arch has been surprisingly low-maintenance so far. Maybe I got lucky with my entrance time; just a few months ago they were instructing all sorts of manual interventions. The only annoying part was messing with a few dependencies. xmonad-contrib apparently had unspecified dependency haskell-old-time...
