Re: 10 Peculiar Things Public Schools Have Banned - http://www.mentalfloss.com/article...
"I must be an old fart. I remember boys getting sent home because they hadn't shaved in three days or whenever the principal thought that somebody needed to shave (and the teachers could wear full beards??). No mustaches or full beards for the boys. I think side burns were supposed to be no lower than the ear lobe, but if so, it was ignored, mostly at least. No shorts. Male hair could not be on the shoulders (although again, it was laxly enforced). Males carrying purses, although they usually weren't ours, to begin with, but it was quite the thing to be doing as a male in marching band. Otherwise I would have been carrying my own. It would have been convenient. But I carried one during the football games! And that's just what little I remember from high school. Oh yeah, no walking to/from school. It was a rural school district, so it makes some sense, but my son decided to walk to high school (when he didn't have to with bus service) and he walked further than I had to walk.

Re: The Best Android Phone, Fall 2013 - http://thewirecutter.com/reviews...
"I think that this goes for all the US carriers, but certainly for AT&T. Put your SIM card into a smart phone when you don't have a data plan, and AT&T will put you on one. It might take a couple of months, but AT&T will detect it, and turn on the data plan. I had two teenagers that lucked into two iPhones from their older siblings. And exactly that happened." - Bryan Price

Re: The Indiana Jones Method - http://scripting.com/2013...
"You're not the only one. I have an editor that has had issues with encoding too. They have fixed the problem for the display, but the print output sucks. Save the file as a plain ASCII file, and there are no problems. But it randomly decides to change that on subsequent saves. So, I wrote a program that creates HTML that prints as I want it to. In some ways, it is actually better, since I have it parsing the program (Powershell)." - Bryan Price

Re: Mozilla’s major user interface overhaul Australis lands in Firefox Nightly - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"Yeah, I've got the profile manager down now. Profiles ARE case sensitive (I created Test Me, and was using -p "Test me". Oops! And both shortcuts use -p even though it's set to ask me every time (I tell it which profile to run, and it goes...). Then again, I was expecting Firefox to just create the profile the first time, not have me create it with the manager. Hence the case issue to begin with! Now, the -no-remote is interesting, and I must have missed that on at least three different occasions looking at three different sources of explanations of command line. I will add that to both shortcuts. Thank you Florian!" - Bryan Price

Re: Mozilla’s major user interface overhaul Australis lands in Firefox Nightly - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"I run a new profile ("Test Me") with the 32-bit Nightly. Unfortunately, Windows won't let me run both at the same time. If I start the 32-bit version with the 64-bit version running, it runs the 64-bit version again. And vice versa. Just restored a backup of my bookmarks from my default profile (dead simple). I've tried different ways of starting it, but Windows is determined to run whatever I have running first (again!). And I've never played with multiple profiles before, either. What fun! I had to rename my default profile to just default, and then I force it with -p for the 64-bit Firefox. It seems to remember and recall the last profile used. Even when I do successfully run the 32-bit Firefox as itself. I'll probably install the 32-bit nightly on my laptop and run the laptop and desktop side by side." - Bryan Price

Re: ARM: Who needs 128-bit chips? - http://www.tgdaily.com/semicon...
"Let's see, we started with 32 bit as a requirement in 1995. XP x64 came out in 2006. Now we haven't hit Windows 8.x having a X64 requirement, but the next version probably will. Let's call that 2017. The way the whole computer business is going, we should see our first 128 bit hardware in 2028 (2017+((2006-1995)/2). Yeah, that's 25 years away. But not inconceivable either. That is, even if we get to a 128 bit architecture. By then, what we consider as architecture may be considered old school, and something else may very well take over. It's also interesting that 2028 is close to the time when we should be able to buy a human equivalent computer for $5K (2000 US)." - Bryan Price

Re: Mozilla’s major user interface overhaul Australis lands in Firefox Nightly - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"I'm running the sorta not official X64 build of the nightly. So I installed the 32 bit version and created a new profile for it. Unfortunately, Windows refuses to run both side by side. If I run 64 bit, clicking on the 32 bit link to open it up opens up another 64 bit window. Now, I can run other portable Firefox without this issue, so evidently I need to load it with different parameters, at least as far as Windows is concerned. So, I now have to run one or the other. Or figure the workaround for it. And I'm just looking at how my theme (Noia) reacts and a few other things." - Bryan Price

Re: Mozilla’s major user interface overhaul Australis lands in Firefox Nightly - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"It's rather odd. I did not have an update to install (I checked), and put it into safemode with a restart. Looked like the old Firefox. I restarted back to my old setup, and now, I'm seeing that my whole menu is now on the title bar. Weirdly, what I had put up on the menu bar is now on the navigation bar (which I had turned off). Also, I do not have an addon bar showing, but I have the always show add on bar checked!. :/ Flipping it back and forth doesn't even make a change in what I'm seeing. I can't change things around, and ever resorting to a new profile, I don't see how I can make some of the changes that I've already made. :/ So, it is now showing up. It has a bit to go, I think. Noia and other themes may need a refresh, I dunno. And yes, I should have mentioned that I'm running x64 Nightly on Windows 7 x64. I'm not bitching or whining, I'm running the Nightly, and I know what that entails." - Bryan Price

Re: Mozilla’s major user interface overhaul Australis lands in Firefox Nightly - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"Well, I'm running the latest/greatest nightly. I'm not seeing much of a difference. Now, because I've heavily modified the look of my Nightly, or just because I'm running Noia as my skin, I dunno. It looks just the same as it did yesterday. :/ Actually, I just restarted in safe mode. Looks like it was supposed to hit today/last night, but evidently it ain't soup yet. Out of caution, I'll note that it's remotely possible that fallout from bug 937997 ("Trunk trees closed due to OOMs") could slightly delay the landing... Mozilla-central has been closed for a few days to investigate a memory leak (completely unrelated to Australis!), but top people are working on getting the tree reopened ASAP. That popped in the Nightly email list this weekend. I have no clue as to find if the tree is open or not." - Bryan Price

"I have a friend who has become an expert on terahertz+ semiconductors. He works as a consultant for the Defense Department. Oddly enough, we never talk about it, even when it is out in the public. I don't know if he's just separating work and personal, or he just can't talk about it (I was interviewed for his classification..). He sees his Congressman on a regular basis flying in and out of DC." - Bryan Price

"How much time did the kids put into learning that show? It was under a week for the Ohio State Buckeyes Marching Band. And, as a marching band player (clarinet) from the Midwest with a band director that was a former 1st Trumpet player from said band, yes, he was rather hard on us. He also was only about 7 or 8 years older than I was. o_O He has been retired for awhile now." - Bryan Price

"Taxpayers do not cover unpaid medical bills. The people that actually give hospitals and other clinics money for their services, either directly by copay/deductible/full pay and/or insurance money spent. I will agree that Obamacare is a big win for insurance companies. And as sad as that is, it's better than what we have currently, and it is certainly better than anything that the Republicans have offered to put it in it's place. Absolutely nothing." - Bryan Price

Re: Neuro-enhanced super-soldiers: Far-fetched science fantasy or an inevitable future? - http://www.rawstory.com/rs...
"And you know what they will eventually be called? Robots! Anybody that thinks that the future of war is somehow modifying a human being's fragile body in some way (genetically, mechanically, pharmacologically) is wrong. Even encasing said body in armor with weapons and energy and all the other accoutrements necessary for keeping an intact human alive will be ludicrous. Taking the brain out, and encasing that around armor would be a bit better, but you still have to worry about acceleration/deceleration even on that 10 pounds of flesh. By the time it can biologically be done to put a brain into a robot body, have it survive, and more importantly keep it sane, we'll be uploading our brains into electronics and just be done with it. If and when it does go insane or psychopathic or whatever, the kill switch will wipe the upload, and you can reupload a fresh copy. And hopefully there will be a kill switch. If not, Saberhagen will be quite the prescient one with his Berserker™ series." - Bryan Price
