A gadget worthy of being in a Consumer Electronics Hall of Fame: the Sony Walkman. It all started when a Sony cofounder wanted a portable player to listen to opera on a plane. And the rest is history.
Un-e anarchiste doit-iel respecter le code de la route ? L'article de Vincent Rouffineau intitulé « Anarchisme et code de la route » vous explique pourquoi la conception libertaire de la liberté, contre celle libertarienne, nous invite à suivre les règles routières.
Incredibly cursed error message that I just got on a work PC trying to launch Task Manager:
"Too many files are currently in use by 16-bit programs. Exit one or more 16-bit programs, or increase the value of the FILES command in your Config.sys file."
...now, that message is pretty cursed on its own (Task Manager is not 16-bit and should not be affected by 16-bit open files limitations), but this is 64-bit Windows 10.
Which doesn't even support 16-bit applications.
What's most remarkable is that this happened even with the rise of bundlers, which effectively make 3rd-party JS "look" like 1st-party. In other words, that 1st-party growth is probably node_modules; the 3rd-party growth is ads/trackers/???.
#Followerpower: Kennt wer jemanden in #Neukölln, der oder die sich mit Waschmaschinentechnik auskennt? Hab eine geschenkt bekommen, die aber nicht geht. Bevor ich ne neue kaufe wüsste ich doch zu gern, ob das z.B. nur an falschen Anschlüssen liegt. Würd mich freuen, wenn wer kurz bei mir vorbei schauen könnte.
Proof that neither a sense of humor nor appreciation of the absurd are requirements for being involved in tech.
It's like there's entire generations of programmers who grew up never having watched a single episode of Monty Python or something.
