  • Re: Cash machine WTF

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]Mother's basement, eh? I dig that.[/quote]Basement is 13 steps down (but they're slightly taller steps than those that lead to apartments). It's just used for storage, despite the previous managing company reporting an apartment there to the taxation...

    [quote user="dkf"]Mind you, some buildings have crazier numbering schemes. One of the buildings at work (and it's a flat site) has at least 3 different first floors. Yes, wholly different levels; there's one stairwell where you can go in at first, go up one floor to third, and then...

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]Doesn't matter. Any laptop built in 2002 could easily run Aero.[/quote]Not really - Aero requires DirectX 9-capable card with 128MB of memory. While nvidia did have their 5xxx mobile GPUs out in 2003, they were limited to 64MB RAM, and the barely Vista-compatible...

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]There is no possible way that Aero could have *worse* performance on a computer, even a laptop, newer than 2002ish. It's impossible. Can't be done. [/quote]It is possible - if the computer had only 1GB RAM, and graphic card shared memory, running Aero could completely...

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]EV certs are a scam, but the whole CA system is a scam. I always tell people to go for EV certs if they're doing a site where end-users because the extra hundred bucks a year is worth it just for the bullshit marketing effect.[/quote]I remember applying for...

    [quote user="Onyx"]Also, isn't it that NTFS is case sensitive but explorer refuses to admit it? I'm pretty sure it quite happily saved both "a.txt" and "A.txt" as two different files when accessed from Linux, but threw a hissy fit when I tried to rename those files...

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]That said, it's not a *current* GTK screenshot, it's a couple of years old.[/quote]Inkscape is a GTK+ program, but that screenshot is pretty obviously showing it running in X11 on OS X, not Windows (unless maybe you meant X-Windows? Nah.).

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]Oh and another the 56,000 other things it doesn't support in Windows, it's also oblivious to the fact that NTFS is not case-sensitive and thus even something as simple as alphabetizing the list of files is completely broken .[/quote]Err, what? That's not...
