@kettch:In the end, it usually end with the universal rule: "When you suspect the question is homework, always give hint only and never direct answer".
@babelshift:I heard Lavabit's boss is creating new secure email service which has a major selling point that all encryption keys they hold are one-time use only (the key for decrypting mailbox will be held by user themselves). When the connection ends it will be discarded. So while the key itself could be passed around, when they got it, it should be of no use.
@DCMonkey:I wholeheartedly agree. It's a "user feature" not settings so it shouldn't be buried deep in the UI.
Btw, unless your browser window is a popup with toolbars hidden, you can find the "Compatibity View Settings" menu item after you clicked the "Gear" icon for settings.
On the other hand, we have some projects that have been ordered "cease development and provide support only". And in such case I found pressing "F12" to call out development toolbar a convenient escape. (I know it's not the intended use, but...)
For some unknown reason, for certain Win7 users that have IE9 installed, I found the "x-ua-compatible" meta tag has no use to them. It works fine in IE8, 10 and 11 though... These users do not have administrator right to their workstation so I can't tell them to upgrade the browser, hence have to resort to this awkward "solution".
1) Make someone help you film yourself sitting at your desk busy writting something, type something on keyboard, click the mouse a few times, etc.
2) Create the loop movie of it.
3) Add it to your Facebook / Personal Website with title "Live Cam".
It'd be funny to see if any of your friends start thinking that you works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
@AndyC:Of course. It take me about 2 days to figure out all fields I need to change (that's a fairly complex deployment) and build sample package and test-deploy it to VM for verification. Then again once successfully built it once, I no longer need to tweak all the bit again. I can just save all the wix setting files and reuse it in all further deployments. So it's well worth the time.
Then again it's because of a fairly annoying limitation of Setup Project that made me decided to go this route.
@figuerres:Indeed, especially considering that continuous database connection won't work well in cellular connections, where the user will keep connecting to different access points as they're moving.If any user started a transaction and caused some page locks, then move on to another access point, the database will lock other victims 30 seconds before the lock is released.
IMO, use "dark" command to decompile an existing package, tweak it a bit as needed, then use "candle" and "light" command to compile it. Not that difficult to use at all.
And if you prefer to build new package from scratch, there's lots of resources like tutorials and online manual on it's official website too.
I have different view. A page full of text is difficult to get the point across. Instead he should make a page containing only a img tag with a gif image of comics.
"Hey, my site works even if you're opening it using the first version of Netscape."
I'm not sure if the aim is to get rid of "old fashioned UI", flattening or making background white will work.
You know, many times when I see people do this, it reminds me of the days of Turbo Vision (Borland's text mode GUI library at the age of DOS). While it'll perheps give some perception of "new-ness" to some people, I doubt it'd be the case for people that have been around old enough.
That said, of course we have to see the actual changed layout to comment on it.
