Well worth the read!
 
Profane and profound
Even before the first responders are on the scene, you need to follow these steps.

A new algorithm efficiently solves the graph isomorphism problem, which has puzzled computer scientists for decades.

The strict-base-types package. It is common knowledge that lazy datastructures can lead to space-leaks. This problem is particularly prominent, when using lazy datastructures to store the state of a long-running application in memory. The easiest solution to this problem is to use fully strict ...

Even trying to give the most charitable interpretation of Internet.org, I don't see how to remove the serious conflict of interest with Facebook. Considering that it's rather trivial to allow access to arbitrary websites, the only remaining motive for restricting access can be to attract new users to Facebook. The fact that it is a non-profit is a red herring that distracts us from this goal.
Splinternet not internet. Facebook's new internet.org is just as evil, not a social initiative.

The agreement poses a grave threat to our basic right to access information and express ourselves on the web

+Neil Mitchell I'm using shake as the build system in one of my projects. It is really pleasent to use. However, I could not find out how I can detect whether a build was successful or not, as the 'shake' function does not return any value.

Best pasta in town :-P

Very nice location, but our service was super slow and unprofessional. The food is nothing special and doesn't warrant its high price.

Me and my wife booked the Panorama 3000 room for two weeks for our yearly hike 'n bike holidays, and we spent a fantastic two weeks in this hotel. The room was furnished with great taste, the view was spectacular, the food delicious, and the personnel and owners are very open and friendly. We spent a lot of time riding our mountain bikes on great trails, which we easily found thanks to the advice given by Gerry, the hotel's professional bike guide. He really knows the region in and out, and this on a lot of levels of riding -- the hike and bike combination to the top of Schartlkopf was a great experience. We can definitely recommend this hotel for luxury mountain bike holidays.

Les chambres sont spacieuses et joliment décorées. Les hôtes sont très sympathiques et serviables. Le maison est magnifiquement situé: les deux la salle à manger et la terrasse ont une vue sur la rivière.
