Re: 0949: "File Transfer"

Well, 'File Transfer' has been a solved problem for a long time and only in the Windows world do people have any issue with this.

You'd be surprised to the degree Microsoft is irrelevant when it comes to industry standards.

Re: EVE Online

A brief guide to reputation for the Serious EvE Player: If someone makes a mistake and loses a lot of ISK to you, it is generally seen as free lunch and no hard feelings unless you're alliance/corp mates, good allies or friends. This covers things like buying at the wrong price, setting up contract...

Re: "Python" discussion

By no means am I a programmer. I'm just a biologist who knows how to program a little. I got into it a little bit doing research over the summer and needing perl. This convinced me to take the "hard" intro to programming (C++). I almost laughed in class when we were shown the 7 or so line...

Of course there is an 's' sound in 'su'. It's just that many Japanese people find it very difficult to pronounce the 's' without tacking on a vowel. This is exacerbated by the fact that in the Japanese syllabic writing system(s), you cannot write a stand-alone 's' ("su" is a single charac...

Your question shows a complete lack of understanding of japanese pronunciation. Separating out the 's' from さ、す、そ、せ、し is not possible in the japanese language, and only those who are good at foreign languages seem to manage to pronounce ...

Also, "Aerith" is a ridiculous sounding name. As we see above, the "th" and "s" sounds are interchangeable in the Japanese, so which way you translate it is entirely a matter of taste, so let's stay with the non-retarded-sounding version please. There is neither 'th' n...

Well, you have to "realize that if you can visualize it in k-dimensional space, you can visualize it in (k+1)-dimensional space". Which through joke logic, is automagically true. This completes the induction. Sorry, when they contain obvious errors of logic, they just don't tickle the fun...
