I don't know how you'd configure it, but if you set up something to kill anyone who doesn't respond to CTCP VERSION, you'll knacker this bot to the point of requiring a bit of a rewrite.

And everyone knows skript kiddies don't have any actual programming skills.

do you always only read the bad stuff? this is also from the press release: Yeah, because their past reorganisations have been oh so successful! The simple, plain, fact of the matter is they've already sold off most of their worthwhile assets. When you've got practically no R&D, it doesn't matt...

Things must be different where you are. Illegal drugs are by far the cheapest way of getting mashed here. Far, far chaper than alcohol.

That was my point. I choose not to sample mushrooms, because of my responsibility - as a gun owner - to stay in control of my actions. The actions of a subject on a bad trip with a gun most likely will have greater consequences, than those of an unarmed subject. I took responsibility. And it is tha...

I give you credit for structuring an argument that is difficult to dislodge. I will say that I would much rather never have my mind "expanded" in that way. Having lost several friends to drug addiction, I susepect what you say about expanding the mind to be crap, but since I con't prove i...

In one episode, he sampled some 'mushrooms' - the 'softdrug' that is harder and more dangerous than it seems. Ofcourse, a videocrew documented his trip pretty well. I know I'll NEVER touch that shit - I am a gun owner and taking psychotropic hallucinogetic (correct word?) mind/reality altering subs...

Linux: Half baked, unfinished, not a market place

I'll stick to buying quality, finished software that's a pleasure to use. Certainly don't get that for free on Linux, and don't get the option of paying for it either.

It should be noted that x2x and x2vnc are very processor hungry compared to Teleffect.

So get some books on computer science and learn. Not having the training handed to you on a silver platter is no excuse for not going out there and getting it yourself. Who knows, maybe you'll realise the errors of your ways before C manages to completely cripple your programming ability with it's a...

We've been an Ada shop where I work for sometime, but some new projects we've started developing are required C++ - just about everyone of us is ready to hang ourselves :x Ah, Ada - my favourite language for other people to program in ;) Although despite it's BDSM nature, it's an excellent example ...

Am I stupid? (Don't answer that! :)) I just *love* C. Its simplicity. Its power. I can't stand layers of abstraction if they can be avoided. I think you've answered your own question ;P Anyone who thinks C is powerful has obviously never had the luxury of a language with closures, first class funct...

How is it laughable? The primitives are exactly that - primitive. There's 30 years worth of research into better methods of locking and multitasking. All ignored because the Lowest Common Denominator (i.e. POSIX) has no support for them. Programmers are lazy, and for the most part, incompetent - th...
