I signed up on a NLP course in the web. Today I received an email from them, and now I wonder how many languages they will be able to teach to process if they are unable to cope with UTF8…
Just to let you know, do not buy any Coby earphone, they suck, and expensive for sucking bad earphones…
I think the 3 and the percent sign are wrong. Probably an horizontal mirror… would fix it 🙂
Submitted this fail to failblog.org, but as it is not the first, and none of my previous fails got published in the main blog, now I am posting them here as well. You can always click the image, and vote for it.
Installed Firefox 4.0 beta 1 in Mac OS X for about… 5 minutes. For now, loved the reduced size of the toolbar (heh.. where are my bookmarks?.. ok, activated it again). Then, by default text areas are now resizable by the user. Good, as some are quite small (just expanded one at the moment), bad as it can break the page layout. And finally, some problems with my favorite chess website when moving pieces.
Was trying to create the typical button to “remove frames” from a site, opening the main iframe content in the full window. While it was easy to make the iframe content to change with a simple HTML link and a target property, it is not easy to make the “remove frames” button to work.
Am I doing something wrong? And, this is a bug or a feature?
Every time I touch a Linux not installed by myself I got to the same feeling. Linux gives too much choices when installing a new operating system and the default options are good just if the only user of the machine is the administrator. If the guy installing the Linux does not have knowledge on what he is doing the result is a mess.
For instance, if you install a fresh Ubuntu you will get no man pages installed.
At the present moment I am in a Fedora 11 installed by a University administrator. If I type ‘cpan’ I get perl complaining about CPAN module not being installed. Then, what is the use of Perl in this situation?
These complains are from a geek, programmer, etc. I know that most desktop users will not have these needs. But I do not think it is a good idea to focus primarily desktop users. Probably the default option should be a sane environment for both worlds.
Last time I used Moblin 2.1 it suggested me to update the operating system. About 200MB of downloads. After about half an hour of downloads and updates (the SSD is quite slow) I turned the machine down. Today I turned the machine on and… the operating system crashed with a message that a component failed, and asking if I wanted to submit a bug report. Said yes. Computer freeze. Tried a reboot. Component failed. Said to dismiss the bug report. Computer freeze.
I just wanted to share this logo, from a Mercedes.
I really enjoyed that little detail of the I and D make a plug.
