SQL and NoSQL are Two Sides of the Same Coin

AlbertinaJane Re:The real reason people like noSQL... (259 comments)

So, because you've seen SQL queries that grow out of control, SQL is a disaster? :) I've seen ruby code that is beyond any explainable logic (or anti-logic, for that matter) - does that mean ruby sucks? No, it just means that untrained/uneducated people are using it. I've seen C code that makes you want to cry all night for not choosing career as car repairmen. Is C bad because of that, or idiots are using it? NoSQL and ORM stuff were invented for people who can't gasp set theory. Which is sad, to say at least.

Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Benchmarked and Reviewed

AlbertinaJane Re:Upgrading in place from the previous LTS? (164 comments)

I did. It failed so nice :) But it's a bliss to reinstall and then put /home and /etc stuff back to its place.

Review of HTC Desire As Alternative To iPhone

AlbertinaJane HTC Legend, then, maybe? (544 comments)

I have HTC Legend. I was thinking about switching to Desire, but from what the guy is saying, Desire seems to be much worse phone than the Legend. I don't have problem with screen brightness, flash is working flawlesly and my battery runs up to two days (I can squeeze maybe three if I stay of the TowerDefence games). I'll be sticking with the Legend since it seems to me that it is much much better phone than the IPhone.

I'm running HTC Legend with Android 2.1. No mods, nothing. Much better than the IPhone. Ligher, smaller, cozier, everythingier :)

The 25 Most Dangerous Programming Errors

AlbertinaJane Re:Yeah, right. (534 comments)

I'll make sure I never hire you! There are developers on the market who take their jobs seriously. They made a bug. They're to blame. (Not that I'm defending attackers, but I just don't care!) You need to write your code right. The way you're putting it, you can write it good and well and demand decent money. But since no one is paying decent money you're writing poor code. That just makes you a poor developer.

Vista's Troublesome UAC is Developer's Fault?

AlbertinaJane Re:I kinda like the concept (228 comments)

You should try some of the Linux-based operating systems. Yesterday I installed new Ubuntu. Prior doing that I backed up my root partition (I have /home - something like Documents and Settings - on different partition). I merely copied files to my USB disk. Took like 10 minutes for 8 gigs of data. Then I installed Ubuntu 7.04, hated the fonts, convinced that they're different than in 6.06 (or the rendering is different), I restored my backup back to 6.06. Just copied the files. 10 minutes. In unix world, you usualy just copy the files! No stupid registry things. (Ok, let's forget for a second that there is gconf :( ) Using Debian then and now Ubuntu I have much less fuss than I it with Windows. Ok, I am quite familiar with Debian, so Ubuntu is a breeze, but 7.04 is realy realy realy user friendly! It downloads the codeces and stuff automaticaly, all you have to do is say 'yes, buntu, do it for me!'. Neat! :) The only thing I'm missing from Windows world are games. Yes, there is Quake and UT and likes, but I miss Need for Speed and Age of Empires.... They run under Cedega, but they're unplayable (P4@1.7+768MB+Radeon9600 - those work under WindowsXP quite well). Seriousley, try Ubuntu (or any other distro, but I feel that you'll have least fuss with Ubuntu), and see how thigns are done there. Then, maybe, you'll see why UAC concept is not that good, esp. the way Microsoft implemented it.

Money - where (and why) it comes from?

AlbertinaJane AlbertinaJane writes  |  about 7 years ago

AlbertinaJane (978419) writes "Excellent, I'd say, explanation on money — what is money, where it comes from, why is it like that, what happens with it in the future... The main idea behind this 45minute movie is that the amount of money you have does not mean how much value you actually have, but how much value is borrowed from you. Excellent, a must see! Makes you REALY think about our tomorrow. (I wish that someone with more economic/business background behind the idea of the movie)"
