Well, of course he uses an MP4 to control traffic lights! What else would one use them for? xD

The number of entities boasting epic skills and leet courses but which can't make a simple website work is astonishing.

I've seen this type of problem with Lynda, Coursera, edX, Duolingo and now, Hack Reactor.

One of this year's best software buys for me was Tordex Wheel. Having used it for months now, I don't think I could use Windows without it any more.

Tordex Wheel makes sure that your scroll wheel scrolls the window that's under the mouse cursor, without taking the focus off the actual focused window, if another app is currently in focus. Linux has this functionality by default, and it's one of its few saving graces.

Give it a go, there's a trial too.

I do love that functionality on my computer. It's one of those features you don't realise how much you use until you're on a computer without it.

Considering it's a tool that's supposed to eliminate the "works on my machine" sentence from our vocabularies, the number of times I find myself saying "It worked for me yesterday, and I didn't change anything" is astonishing with Vagrant..

That's not a bad idea at all, cheers, I'm looking at all alternatives right now, I'd rather not do any permanent modifications, yeah.

Silly Google, where do you think my Nexus is, if not in the same country as the other two devices?

I don't get it! what's with the country restriction?! What is it that Google is afraid that we at the middle east might use as a weapon of mass destruction!?
Oh! btw, I already got the apk and installed it.

Ahh, open source community, you never fail to disappoint.

There's this popular repo, and it's had a problem for weeks now. Two major issues I have with this situation:

1) The author has been aware of it for a while, and did nothing yet, despite the popularity of the project.
2) The same issue has been opened SEVEN times. People don't even TRY to read the existing issue titles - they're identical!

See, this is why we can't have nice things.

I don't ask to deify maintainers but only to give back.

Taking some time to comment on the issue to educate others devs ("this is a duplicate of #..., please check opened tickets before creating new ones - btw, this is fixed in PR #...") would be a nice an appreciated way to give back IMO.

OSS is all about the community and if you use a piece of SW, you are part of it.

Excellent Zante Lamb, fantastic meat, very juicy and tasty. Quite a fancy tavern, considering amount of food per euro, but a foodie's heaven. Also, the elusive Alfa beer is on offer here.

Been here with the missus for a couple relaxing wellness days and we were reborn. A fantastic view from the fourth floor overlooking the sea, amazingly comfortable beds and extraordinary food during both dinner and breakfast are just some of the perks - then there's the saunas, the roof which overlooks the town and coast, the pandering by the pool, the custom breakfast orders if you don't like anything of the 100 foods on offer. Will definitely visit again.

Fantastic ethnic food. Highly recommend the "meza for 2". You'll get stuffed with awesomeness.

A very good pizzeria with a semi-decent view. The staff is great, albeit a bit too enthusiastic, and the overall feel is very good. Definitely give them a chance next time you're around.

Very good, the square lasagna pizza "moho" was an interesting experience. You'd think it would not be enough, but by the time you're done you're fed to death. Ok prices and nice, cosy ambient, give it a try.
