CaseCrash Re:Why do people still pay money for basic softwar (522 comments)

Well other than the lack of outline mode. Which , annoyingly apple's Pages dropped recently too.

And which I have *no idea* how to find on the new fangled ribbon interface thing in modern Office either :(

You go to the "View" tab (the last one) and it's button number four.

Just FYI :)

I use outline mode all the time. (And I also like the Ribbon, which makes me a heretic around here.)

Could Google's Test of Hiding Complete URLs In Chrome Become a Standard?

CaseCrash Re:And the question of the day is... (327 comments)

Hah. Like Microsoft deciding that file name dot-extensions were the devil's workshop and must be hidden from view by default.

I saw this a couple places in the comments. I could be wrong, and i haven't used an Apple product since the 90's but weren't Apple computers the first to hide the extension and instead differentiate in the icon only?

Reviving a Commodore 64 Computer Using a Raspberry Pi

CaseCrash Re:old tech (165 comments)

But I'd say that 99.999% of today's programmers have no fucking clue what code optimization really means..

CPU power is cheap, let the compiler optimize what it can, take care of larger bottlenecks, and who cares? The rapid development we have now allows us to progress at an amazing rate because it usually doesn't matter if we waste a few cycles. You can continue to do F1 at the edges, but the mass in the middle is fine with a Civic.

Also check out the CERN line mode browser simulation of the first web site

On chrome it's unreadable, on IE it's crazily formated. Firefox shows it correctly, but come on; talking about how awesome the web is and giving an example that fucks up?
