It's been tested on the micro:bit, circuit playground express, calliope and several Arduinos.
I've experienced this at the Apple Store when taking a Mac in for repairs. They refused to fix it if I didn't give them the password, even though it was under warranty. There's even a dedicated field for typing in your login password on the iPads the Apple Genius gives to you when submitting your Mac for a repair.
I also don't think the JS is that bad here, the site loaded pretty fast for me even when I tested with a slow 3G network. But yeah that UI doesn't give a good reading experience.
For deeper, general purpose pieces, I also just cross-post to Medium from my own blog as that seems to drive some incremental traffic.
I bought Mailbird because it looked amazing and had the feature set I wanted. It has done its job extremely well, and I'm very happy with it. But it doesn't have a Linux client; it's only for Windows.
I have six active email addresses spread across multiple providers - Office365, Exchange, Gmail, GSuite, and Zoho. I need a central place to read it all.
I've seen Hiri mentioned before, but dismissed it because it doesn't support Google/IMAP. Once it adds that support, it has my attention, and potentially my dollars.
If you want zero-copy video playback for optimizing battery life use mpv with --hwdec=vaapi -vo vaapi. Or vdpau or whatever API is supported with that driver.
But beyond that I don't think it's an unreasonable publishing medium. It's convenient for authors and scales to most platforms.
One key mindset you have is to take a breath from the frustration that motivates the question and put a few minutes thought to how you can set your answerer up for success.
To me, the hour trip to go to the store is much more burdensome than 2 minutes on my computer plus 48 hours of doing everything else that I have in my life...I run my brain on a round-robin scheduling algorithm, and there are plenty of other tasks that can keep me busy while I wait for that interrupt to return!
Sometimes 'replacing passwords' is used to mean 'replacing the traditional username and password login' as well.
Have you thought about going into CS research or academia?
CS is not about programming. One of the best CS professors I've had barely knew how to type.
CS is more about math and algorithms and theory than programming.
There is also technical writing or teaching. High schools are desperate for CS teachers.
When it came out I was disappointed that they adopted and interpreter, followed by JIT with 1.2, leaving to commercial third parties the AOT compiler toolchain.
I was then double disappointed with .NET, due to the NGEN/JIT mix, because NGEN was no match for a proper AOT compilation, just for faster startups.
And it took them Singularity, Midori, to finally arrive at CoreRT and .NET Native, and still it only applies to certain deployment scenarios.
Back then it wasn't only Delphi, there was Oberon, Component Pascal, Eiffel.
But they were all commercial and then around the same time FOSS started to pick up steam, Kylix was very badly managed, and due to its UNIX roots everyone was mostly writing GNU tools in C, which wasn't actually that much used in the PC world where we were already quite happily using OWL, VCL and MFC.
At least Pascal style syntax is fashionable again.
What industry are you referring to here - the tech sector, the entertainment industry? This is rather vague. Also which tax are you referring to? Who are the "incumbents"?
Pauses, steps back and says, “I think it can use one little change, may I?”
He then takes a white paint brush and proceeds to erase my entire drawing with it.
“Ah, much better”, he says.
He was a total asshole but had a cult like following. Those of us remaining by the end of the semester loved him. To this day I credit that class with dramatically improving my drawing skills, but it definitely wasn’t for everyone.
