FTR, I was only kidding. My comment isn't meant as an endorsement of communism. If anything, it's a backhanded remark about data communism and the propensity for people to be too sharing with their data.
the propensity for people to be too sharing with their data.
In this topic I always remember what my father said me years ago... I suppose is a quote by someone else, but anyways...
A clown gets steps forward to be seen, the intelligent step back to see the whole picture.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I absolutely hate when they make cute little rotary knobs where you attempt to change a value and it just jumps all over the place because it requires precision control of a mouse, in a circular motion. Yeah, like that will ever happen. And ones with numeric labels are just a tease because they're labels and you can't do direct-entry to bypass the mouse dance.
I don't do that. My* fancy controls can also be keyboard controlled with the arrows or paging buttons.
*I didn't create them, but I modified the code to allow this, because [see above].

About 15 years ago, and the QA idiots are less incompetent than the s guilty of acrobat/reader.
I'd recently started a new job and moved into my own home. I'd been invited to a beta for a new version of a game I'd been playing heavily for years. The developer send the NDA as a PDF form which would've been great since I didn't have a printer; except that it was only possible to 'sign' and save the form if you had the full version of Acrobat, not the free reader.
I ended up screenshotting it to MS paint, filling in all the normal text using the text tool, freehanded my signature (I was really tempted to use the cursive font to see if they said anything), and then saved it off as several .bmp files (for spite) which I emailed off. Surprisingly for an organization that created such an asinine process they were quite happy with the result.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I have often thought there is good money to be made in teaching people how to scan their sig into their system for just such an emergency and also, in just cleaning up pdf forms for companies. But alas. I don't want to deal with such people.
