  • YouTube flagging

    Also, if a bot signs up and starts flagging, it might be easy for YouTube to undo all that user's actions. If the automatic abuse is done by an anonymous user... good luck restoring the damage.

    Not sure if that is actually the reason, but that's the first thing that popped into my head.

    heh... Orcas isn't even in beta yet. We'll be lucky if it's even VS2008.

    One hour and 21 minutes. That was pretty spectacular. Smiley

    Yeah, I was at the car dealer's last week, wondering why I still had to pay for a car.

  • Flying games

    I bought mine (exactly the same one in the pic) many, many years ago on a PC convention. I used it on my Amstrad Mega PC, a combined Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and 25MHz 386 SX. So you can count back how long ago that is. So I don't think they're still available now, except perhaps on eBay.

    I've also seen one once that was specifically for the numpad. It was a stick on a suction cup that was supposed to be stuck on the 5 key, and then four fingers extending from it would push the up, down, left and right keys when you tilted the stick in that direction. More elegant, but less sturdy.

    It's not worth it anyways.  Playing a flight sim with the keyboard is painful, especially when you don't have a dedicated numpad, because you end up needing both the number pad and the keys it shares to control the game.

    Unless you could find a small USB joystick or something...  but as far as I can tell, those don't exist.


    A wired Xbox 360 controller might work, though.

    As for small joysticks, check out this miracle of technology:

    I only have the first Phoenix Wright. Despite hating the manga/anime/whatever art style with a passion, the game itself is pretty awesome, and perfect for long waits in airports.

    So why did you say that "he is not entirely correct" in response to being able to serve it from any server platform? What was not 'entirely correct' about it?


    You can not use ASP.NET to dynamically generate WPF/E content using Apache, such functionality is only available on Windows and IIS.


    That really has nothing to do with being able to serve it from any platform. I guess, though, that coming up with another claim that is entirely unrelated to what you were being asked is your way of admitting that you were wrong.

    I realise how hard that is for you to admit, but I see what you mean. Nice to see you admit that you're wrong sometimes, albeit in a veiled, roundabout way.

    That's what I figured, too. But according to emet, that's not always true. I'm hoping that he'll explain when it is not possible.
