outside of the scope of windows, half of my time is spent coding RPG on an IBM AS400.
I use two gmail accounts during the day. And I want them both open in separate windows.
I login to the first in IE (on windows 8 ). Then for the 2nd I start up Chrome and login to the 2nd account. IE caches the login for the first account. And Chrome caches it for the 2nd. When I login to the 2nd account in IE I get a popup message in the 1st account saying I have been logged out.
Is the reason because IE can only cache one password at a time? Is it possible to start a 2nd instance of IE with a 2nd password cache store?
The 2nd reason I have to use Chrome in Windows 8 is because videos play more reliably in Chrome than IE. This site http://www.mediaite.com/ is especially problematic in windows 8. In 8.1 it works. But even on 8.1 I find that whenever a video does not play I switch to Chrome and it does play.
And last week I found that I could not config my router from IE on windows 8.1. The tech told me to switch to Chrome and it worked.
Yes. In total, all the help hurts. Think of it this way. Life in the industrialized countries is much better than it was 500 years ago. Can we say the same for those who live in many other places in the world? I do not think so.
I do not see Bill's involvement in foreign societies as completely benign and benevolent. Not that he is trying to do harm but the population of the nations he helps are growing unsustainably. And the political pressure Bill and other tech leaders apply to support open borders immigration policies arguably cause a brain drain in poor countries. I think a good case can be made that if nations were left to develop on their own that they would be better off in the long run.
Keep in mind, the prime directive was written for a reason.
Admittedly I do not know enough about it but I am anti Azure. I think Windows Server should have all the features of Azure built into it. That is a shop should be able to run its own Azure service. So I figure if Microsoft spun Azure off then Windows Server would be free to compete against it.
What about spinning Azure off as a standalone company? What synergy is there between Windows and Azure?
it is not like Bing would cease to exist. Would just have a different corporate ownership.
Think of it from the perspective of the owners of Microsoft, the large shareholders. If Bing is sold to another corporation that these owners also have a large stake in what is the difference to them? They still own both the MSFT OS company and the Bing search company. And the Bing company now has a management team that is entirely focused and accountable to Bing.
Arguably this is also good for users in that their Windows OS now can be more search agnostic. Would be terrific if Bing was not favored in the users choice of search engine. Bing is too ad laden and not focused enough on the actual search to be something I prefer to use.
didn't managed C++ show that a language could mix native and managed code? I thought the only problem with managed C++ was that the programmer had to use the ^ syntax. And there is work involved in copying between managed and unmanaged variables. I was hoping the compiler would do more for me.
here is the code to convert from a managed string to a native std::wstring:
wstring to_wstring( String^ Text )
wstring text ;
if ( Text != nullptr )
wchar_t* pText = (wchar_t*) Marshal::StringToHGlobalUni(Text).ToPointer( ) ;
text = pText ;
Marshal::FreeHGlobal( IntPtr(pText)) ;
return text ;
