There is no truth like the whole truth.




Now excuse me while I go make sure the hamsters have not changed the unicorn's eye color.
Every friend I have with a job that involves picking up something heavier than a laptop more than twice a week eventually finds a way to slip something like this into conversation: "Bro,1 you don't work hard. I just worked a 4700-hour week digging a tunnel under Mordor with a screwdriver." ...

A slightly amusing but otherwise useless observation: Just back in the office after holidays. Delphi 2007 asks "Module <file_name> time/date changed. Reload?" - for every open file. Related to the recent daylight saving time change, perhaps?

Two things about SOPA/PIPA and then I'll shut up :)

(1)

The internet seems to ignore legislation until somebody tries to take something away from us... then we carefully defend that one thing and never counter-attack. Then the other side says, "OK, compromise," and gets half of what they want. That's not the way to win... that's the way to see a steady and continuous erosion of rights online.

The solution is to start lobbying for our own laws. It's time to go on the offensive if we want to preserve what we've got. Let's force the RIAA and MPAA to use up all their political clout just protecting what they have. Here are some ideas we should be pushing for:

* Elimination of software patents
* Legal fees paid by the loser in patent cases; non-practicing entities must post bond before they can file fishing expedition lawsuits
* Roll back length of copyright protection to the minimum necessary "to promote the useful arts." Maybe 10 years?
* Create a legal doctrine that merely linking is protected free speech
* And ponies. We want ponies. We don't have to get all this stuff. We merely have to tie them up fighting it, and re-center the "compromise" position.

(2)

The dismal corruption of congress has gotten it to the point where lobbying for legislation is out of control. As Larry Lessig has taught us, the core rottenness originates from the high cost of running political campaigns, which mostly just goes to TV stations.

A solution is for the Internet industry to start giving free advertising to political campaigns on our own new media assets... assets like YouTube that are rapidly displacing television. Imagine if every political candidate had free access (under some kind of "equal time" rule) to enough advertising inventory on the Internet to run a respectable campaign. Sure, candidates can still pay to advertise on television, but the cost of campaigning would be a lot lower if every candidate could run geo-targeted pre-roll ads on YouTube, geo-targeted links at the top of Reddit.com, even targeted campaigns on Facebook. If the Internet can donate enough inventory (and I suspect we can), we can make it possible for a candidate to get elected without raising huge war chests from donors who are going to want something in return, and we may finally get to a point where every member of congress isn't in permanent outstretched-hand mode.

Uh WE don't own youtube. Google does, and Google is okay with the patent situation, having itself a large patent warchest, and being perfectly fine with not having to compete in a newly levelled playing field that would result if the monopolies had their power taken away.  With this much money at stake,  someone who started making enough noise about software patents would end up dead.   Corporations wouldn't directly put hits out on people, but in the end, human history and human nature don't deviate that far from certain well-understood historical patterns, which have been observed in all of history. If someone wants to change society so that those who have power will have less of it, there will be people getting threatened, hurt, and some will get thrown under the bus.   Joel's right to want change, but I think he's being naieve if he thinks it can be accomplished with a few banner ads.

21 million? I think it's a bit low... USA has 311 million people, I think you can squeeze 21 million "modern day slaves", then there's GB, Germany, Spain, Italy, etc.

+Thomas Mueller Just an idea: Perhaps this could be described in your issue tracker. If you store links/references to issues in your commit messages, and, vice versa, links/references to commits in your issue tracker, it should be possible to filter your commit history by individual projects/modules (as defined in the tracker).

Debugging 64 bit Delphi applications with Delphi XE2 on Windows 8 does not work
1
Ondrej Kelle's profile photo
 
I installed Windows 8 x64 as the host main OS, assuming I could remote-debug apps in it from a VirtualBox guest machine (Windows 7 i386). That won't work with XE2, as I know now. I should have started with Windows 7 as the host OS.
Pity, I really liked Windows 8 so far (using Start8, of course).
