Dragon Age: Inquisition Reviewed and Benchmarked

yanyan Re:Support the developers! (91 comments)

The decision to integrate nasty DRM most likely always comes from upper management, so the programmer rank and file have little to no say about the issue.

That's why i pay for the programmers' salaries by buying legit copies of games, and playing with cracked, patched, and 110% working bootlegs.

I even keep my purchased copies unopened, so later down the road they'd be worth something to collectors.

Google Testing Gmail Redesign

yanyan Re:How about "no thanks" .... (218 comments)

It's nice to see google focusing on the Real Important Stuff, instead of things like proper message quoting in replies -- fixing top-posting, which only idiots use.

Chrome Bugs Lets Sites Listen To Your Private Conversations

yanyan Re:No turning back the clock. (109 comments)

I believe the voice recognition feature was added as a user interface for the browser, not the web pages themselves. Why or how the audio could get captured by another listener is the question.

Fedora Project Turns 10

yanyan Re:Fedora community effort (83 comments)

I started out with Gnome when i first discovered Linux in 1997. In my first job in 2000, my time was split between KDE, which i used at work, and Gnome, which i used at home. Soon after i switched to Fluxbox and never looked at anything else.

It's a shame what's happened to the Linux desktop. All that potential slowly going to waste, what with the "let's clone the windoze UI" and big egos and community squabbles and no sense of direction.

Best Browser for Using Complex Web Applications?

yanyan yanyan writes  |  more than 4 years ago

yanyan (302849) writes "I'm fairly new to the field of web application development. Currently i'm working on a big online ticketing system for passage and freight for a local shipping company. It's a one-man show and the system is written in Ruby and uses Rails. Aside from the requisite functionality of creating bookings the system must also print reports and tickets, and this is where i've discovered (the hard way) that most, if not all, browsers fall short. I've had to switch from Firefox 3.6.3 to Opera 10.53 because of a major printing bug in Firefox, but the latest stable Opera is also giving me its own share of problems. To complicate things, an earlier version of Opera (10.10) doesn't appear to have 10.53's printing problems, but i'm wary. What browsers and specific versions do you end up deploying for use with big, complex web apps that include printing? Also consider CSS accuracy and consistency."
