> You can’t add code to ducks.

You can’t refactor ducks.

Ducks don’t implement protocols.
You mean ducktyping dosen't involve ducks typing?
Only if it's a million ducks, and you want them to write Disney cartoons.
The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare. In this context, "almost surely" is a mathematical term with a precise meaning, and the "monkey" is not an actual monkey, but a metaphor for an abstract device that produces an endless random sequence of letters and symbols. One of the earliest instances of the use of the "monkey metaphor" is that of French mathematician Émile Borel in 1913, but the earliest instance may be even earlier...

Q: What's faster: Running a Windows virtual machine on Linux or running a Linux VM on Windows?

Aaron_HI've searched the internet for this and I don't think I've been able to phrase the question concisely for any search engines, so I'm turning to people! I've got a laptop and I would like to know what is faster: running Windows through a virtual machine on Ubuntu (/ Mint) or running Ubuntu as a V...

@MichaelFrank: opinion based?
@JourneymanGeek Yea, I think so.

I have found a critical security vulnerability that allows arbitrary elevation to administrator from unprivileged accounts.

1. Grant Full Control of the Windows directory (and all its contents and subdirectories) to Everyone.
2. Log on as an unprivileged user and perform these actions...
Q: How to hide cmd window of a Calibre Content Server batch script?

churchillSo I manage to be able to share more than one Server Content at the same time with the same PC. If someone want to know how can I do this, is easy. Make a batch script and put this: @echo off calibre-server.exe -p 8081(OR THE PORT NUMBER YOU WANT TO USE) --with-library "PATH-TO-YOUR-LIBRARY" ...

this starts out as a tutorial.... then turns into a question. o.O
4:34 AM
That's not really a good question to mark it as a dupe of... The solution is a third party app.
@MichaelFrank So?
I'm sure there are native solutions.
@MichaelFrank Then find one and add it as an answer.
The question is still a dupe.

5 ways to avoid saying "people are idiots" when i would rightly be including myself in that :-)
1) because computers are complex instruments
2) People can have a life beyond using a computer, so they can not know everything.
3) Not all software and hardware is perfect , add the human factor and there is much room for error.
4) in 30 years we are all going to be laughing at how much bull crap we had to go through.
5) if it is not rocket science, then how do you think they got to mars? an abucus

Actually, people are idiots. They usually aren't only too stupid to use a computer, they're too stupid to use a car, a powertool and even a fridge and they spend their life watching TV instead of learning something
It says so right on the first page in the Idiot Hand Guide for Smart People®

@Psycogeek people somehow manage to forget how to read

That feeling what you write a review for an Amazon purchase and you realize that you haven't even received some of the other products in the list.. :(
One is shipping from the China, the other from Singapore
And the estimated delivery period spans 1 month O__O
How do you call file that can be interacted independently with without having it loaded in software it was exported from?
10:06 AM
@Boris_yo plaintext?
@OliverSalzburg No... When you use Winzip to extract archive you need Winzip. But when there's self-extracting archive the file does not require Winzip to be extracted.
10:37 AM
Thats what you call it.
