Ask Slashdot: Geek-Centric Magazines Still Published On Paper?

QwkHyenA Many thanks for the suggestions folks! (125 comments)

I sincerely appreciate the suggestions folks and you've given me a number ideas I honestly hadn't even thought of!

And, Yes, I'll even buy a tablet in the future and probably restart my subscription to Linux Journal (I had that wrong in the OP.) But as a couple of you have pointed out, electronic devices are not compatible with all situations and sometimes I just need to take a break from an LCD screen.

Starbucks Gets Mobile Payment System

QwkHyenA Re:So where is the APP for the tip box? (149 comments)

And I totally agree; you probably don't need too. I however usually get a latte w/ soy milk which takes a bit longer and so I tip.

Starbucks Gets Mobile Payment System

QwkHyenA Re:So where is the APP for the tip box? (149 comments)

I couldn't agree more. I haven't tried the app yet but as a regular bux customer I only use cash so I can give them a tip. I always feel bad using a CC because there isn't any way to tip them when using plastic.

It sure would be nice if they had some cool tipping options on the app. (Such as, "Round up to the nearest dollar", "25 cents", "50 cents", "75 cents" and a dollar.)

Head First C#

> but you really should try to modern-up your skillset if you code for a living

Modern? Simula67 introduced an implementation of OO with objects, classes and inheritance in... guess what year?

OO should only be one paradigm in the programmer's toolkit; applying it to all problems is unwise. Procedural, OO, AO, DO, functional, logic; they're all equally valid across an unbounded problem space.

Exactly good sir. You don't need to use C++ to implement OO in C. I can easily do OO in regular C thru the use of structs & unions. Not all functions need to utilize get/set member functions and whatnot.

Ask Slashdot: Top ten Geek magazines that still sh

QwkHyenA (207573) writes "I've recently cancelled my Linux Magazine subscription because they went paperless. I know, I'm a heartless geek and should be "shunned" but I enjoy the unplugged sensation of reading paper periodicals. What sort of magazines are out there that still are delivered via USPS that will scratch my Engineering, Coder, System Administrator and 3D Printer itch??"
