  • Re: Early filing penalty

    [quote user="Snooder"]Easter is, at its base, a holiday intended to celebrate the spring equinox. Every agrarian culture has one, since it coincides with the planting season. Why the full moon? I'm not sure, but probably just to make sure that any nightime revelries have plenty of light. Since getting shitfaced in pitch blackness is ...

    Good job of simultaneously answering my question and entirely missing the point.

  • Re: Early filing penalty

    [quote user="da Doctah"][quote user="Snooder"]The filing deadline for an answer to a complaint in Texas is "the Monday next after expiration of twenty days from the date of service". Admittedly, it becomes real easy to remember after a while. But man, when you first see it, you just go WTF?[/quote] Is that what you ...

  • Re: Someone's just discovered "yield"

    [quote user="Snooder"]I supposed I should be clear. By 'users' I meant Blakey's mythical "average joe office worker" who wants to automate some task, but by golly, he's stymied by the incredible difficulty of having to learn a programming language to do it. Obviously, good language features shouldn't be ...

  • Re: Save me from shit UI (you can't be saved)

    [quote user="Buttembly Coder"]I mostly just find it funny that a lot of the original discoverability / usability concepts; mimicking a desktop, naming things based off how one manipulate a print-media layout pre-computer, etc, are now all anachronisms to new computer users. Even terms like "cut" or "paste" are ...

  • Re: Remember Bitcoin?

    [quote user="Snooder"]You, on the other hand, seem to be saying, without any irony or hyperbole, that all federal "alphabet soup" agencies are bad, worthless and have no redeeming purpose whatsoever.[/quote]This is actually a sign of progress. Now that you've acknowledged the possibility that you're reading additional ...

    I have nothing real to say to someone who claims to lean libertarian but apparently never met a regulation he didn't like.

  • Re: Remember Bitcoin?

    [quote user="Snooder"]I DID answer that question. I said "They didn't". Before the FDA came about, people DIED of botulism because canners were too lazy to check their products. Babies got fed sawdust in their baby formula. Before the SEC, people lost their savings and the entire country was plunged into the Great ...

  • Re: Remember Bitcoin?

    [quote user="Snooder"][quote user="PedanticCurmudgeon"][quote user="flabdablet"]The libertarian program relies heavily on the idea that people, if left to their own devices and freed from the nanny state, would just work things out between themselves. Which kind of ignores the to-me obvious fact that the ...
