     I think the last specific positive thing I heard anyone say about anything Yahoo had to offer that wasn't part of the Yahoo Developer Network was back when ICQ was still one of the main instant messaging networks I heard about (I say that more to identify timeframe than anything else). I knew people who really liked Yahoo's one ...

  • Re: Amazingly screwed-up installation experience

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]The FOSS version/ripoff is called Godot. Honestly, it might be good, who knows. [/quote] From their homepage: "It took a long time but its finally ready for everyone." From this I deduce that they believe everyone was waiting for Godot. I approve.

  • Re: Predictive text on Windows phone

     I do sometimes wish my phone had Powershell. That's really pretty much the only Windows-related thing I ever wish it had, but I suppose if I actually tried using a Windows phone I might come up with more.

     [quote user="Rhywden"] Well, then, while we're comparing apples to oranges, my duck won't fly because the elephant next door isn't grey. [/quote]  So give the duck a new primary key.
