Escape Goat 2, Goat Simulator each push the boundaries of virtual goat life.

While Escape Goat 2 is certainly the better "game", Goat Simulator is probably more "fun" and will result in more water-cooler style stories.

Ran into this at work and was stumped for a while.  KVM virtualization is great, but the networking part of it is a bit goofy, if you're used to other desktop virtualization platforms like virtual box, vmplayer, etc.

Apparently imagemagick and hyper-threading don't mix. A simple convert was 20 x slower on a much faster machine, than restricting it to a single core.

Interesting! Older software or something?

Whoever came up with the terminology for posix signal handling.... must have had a strange sense of humor.

Maybe this way I'll. Keep better tabs on this.
 
Quick crash course in #Qt  C++ API:
• signals and slots: think M:N callback mechanism (and don't write the parameter names in the connect call, just the type)
• if you need signals or slots, you derive from QObject; otherwise, you don't have to
• Qt classes that don't derive from QObject (like QString, QList, QNetworkProxy) should be used like you'd use int -- new QString("Hello") =~= new int(42) (implicitly shared, atomic copy-on-write)
• QString contains human text, not arbitrary binary data (that's QByteArray); to get data into it, you must know the encoding of what you're giving
• QString and QByteArray automatically null-terminate
• signals are named after verbs in the past and usually indicate a state change
• slots are named after verbs in the imperative and indicate an action to be taken
• properties are named after nouns or adjectives; the setter has "set" prefixed, the getter has no prefix (except for booleans, which sometimes get "is" prefixed)
• events are not signals, usually denoting an external factor (e.g. key or mouse press)
• anything visible derives from QWidget or QWindow and must only be used from the GUI thread
• widgets are positioned using layouts inside the parent widget
• Model-View classes are complex; read more in a book
• QObject (thus QWidget) deletes all its children on destruction
• QThread manages a thread, it's not the thread
• all I/O functions (besides QFile) are non-blocking and operate in the event loop, except those whose name starts with "waitFor"
• QSocketNotifier works with any file descriptor on Unix, but only real sockets on Windows; if you need to wait for something on Windows, use QWinEventNotifier (Qt 5) or a thread
• moc expands Q_OBJECT; if you add or remove a Q_OBJECT, you may need to tell your buildsystem about it
• uic parses .ui and creates a .h, but it's entirely optional: you can write the UI by hand

Also signals and slots don't use the event mechanism unless across threads or running in a non default mode, otherwise they are essentially one or more immediate function calls

Sorry, something went wrong.

A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.
If you see them, show them this information:

I"m surprised bars & high-end restaurants haven't exploited this for fancy alcoholic drinks.

This is a very misleading name for the store. It is not fast food as you would think, its premade, frozen packaged food that meets some Indian guru's diet guidlines. If that sounds good to you, go right ahead and enjoy! I was actually looking for a place that would serve vegitable dishes that were ready to eat or would be served. This is not that place.

Yes, I'm rating a Catholic Church. I would rate it as Catholic as it celebrates an authentic Catholic Mass with a real live Catholic Priest. Like every other Catholic Mass, the bread and wine, by means of transubstantiation, become the Body and Blood of Christ. There isn't a rating high enough! There aren't enough stars in the heavens to rate it! So keep in mind that this 5 star ratting is actually shorthand for infinity+1. This place is heavenly!
