Are Console Developers Neglecting Their Standard-Def Players?

kkrajewski Re:Surprising (200 comments)

What is it, a checkbox? "I promise I tried it on an SD TV. Really." See above post re: Dead Rising for a prime example of SD incompetence.

Teen Diagnoses Her Own Disease In Science Class

kkrajewski Re:Some times you need to be your own advocate (582 comments)

In what ways other than dosage does the canine version differ? I hear it's not unfathomable that one working for or very friendly with a vet might receive a prescription for their "170 pound" dog.

Teen Diagnoses Her Own Disease In Science Class

kkrajewski Re:Health Care (582 comments)

You always have to anyway. When I bring my car or bike to the mechanic I don't say, "Something changed in the brakes," I say "Can you please install this new master cylinder for me?"

Buying a Domain From a Cybersquatter

kkrajewski Users don't understand subdomains (800 comments)

I disagree. People will get the order wrong even if they've visited the site before. They'll type "," not even think about autocomplete not kicking in, and then get redirected to the squatter before they try the other way around. Think about how often you've seen people try "" instead of ""

Technical solution to a social problem? How about just count the number of names on the sheet, or learn to recognize your students? I don't know, crazy ideas...

Finding a Personal Coding Trifecta

kkrajewski Footrest (188 comments)

For whatever reason, sitting in a chair normally causes my legs to ache. I must have RLS or something. Unfortunately my current desk arrangement doesn't allow for me to elevate my legs other than to put them on my desk... which I do almost all of the time.

So, I guess:
Footrest, chair with back support, laptop with mouse.

Standing up is also comfortable for a while at times.

The alternate universe 80s version of me would totally buy that. But then a competitor will start rumors about it slapping closed and lopping off someone's ear.

Worst Working Conditions You Had To Write Code In?

kkrajewski Well... (1127 comments)

We work from home, so about the most hazard we experience would be a cat jumping on the keyboard.

OTOH, in the realm of just annoying, is that a device emulator we use frequently takes about 90 seconds to load and can't just be left running -- you have to restart it for each recompile. It's like the testing cycle is make as many changes as possible, compile, go get a beverage or take a pee, come back, it should be just about ready to run.
