If you have a small business that needs a site, but your not savy to do it yourself, you ask a developer to build you a wordpress site. You know that even if said developer is gone in a few years, enough people know wordpress that it can be maintained..
Kind of a shame. I use itunes mac daily and I feel they've really did a great job with the UI. It has a little learning curve. I have a lot of songs and making/ adding to my current playlist is pretty easy and powerful.
1) Available on most platforms (editing a file on the server.. emacs)
2) Its programable. You can store and replay key commands. I use this frequently to reformat data..
3) Steep Learning curve, but its fast once learned. Its hard to learn and takes a while. The basics are pretty straight forward, but not entirely intuitive.
4) Its extensible. Though I find it hard to manage add ons.
I use Org mode, but sometime have trouble remembering all the key commands.
5)Dired. Look up files and open.
For large projects I end up using the JetBrains IDEs. I think the "knowledge" of the project provides good insight. I think there are add ons to Emacs that will do the same thing. I haven't tried them. If I have to just open a file and edit, I'm happier in Emacs. I wish the IDE's would let you "bring your own editor"
I inherited a bug that only showed up the last 5 minutes of an hour. Except I didn't know that. The first time I worked on it, I reproduced the error but before I got the debugger started the time went by and the new hour caused the bug to go away...(why does this bug not show when the debugger is on?)
Eventually by hand tracing I figured it out.. Some weird time function was rounding the minutes to the nearest 10 minutes. When the time crept past 55 minutes rounded up to 60 and passed to a time function that didn't like...
Only bug that was harder was a serial cable with flipped wires. Which kinda worked, but gave out garbage. We figured that out with a scope.
Each variety tastes the same (a golden delicious apple tastes like other golden delicious apples).
The grafting does that among other things "Maintain consistency". A hardy root system that you mention is one.
I started looking into it because my dad has a giant apple tree thats much bigger than the ones I've seen in an orchard, but the apples taste surprisingly bitter.
I guess another reason they like grafting is the trees stay smaller and its easier to pick the fruit.
Another option would be to use the language called "R". I'm fairly new to it but its pretty much a programming language for math. Lots of libraries. Great programmatic graphing capability (ggplot2). Easy to dump file data into it.
In my lab a lot of biologists run there data with it. I think something like 80% of the graphs they publish are created in it. Better then excel in my opinion.
Student Loans are not like loans for tangible things (homes and cars). When you default on your student loan they don't take your diploma back. You keep your degree, the increased earning potential. You keep your experiences and education.
Student loans are a complex web of federal guarantees, but if basic capitalism works, by defaulting you are going to make it more expensive for the next students, who have to pay more to cover the defaulters. Some students won't be able to afford it with the added interest rates.
Seems his education helped him be successful. So why should he pay for it?

Not defaulting also seems to have the effect of driving costs up for the next students.
