I think I finally understand why Trump is doing so well (he recently pulled even with Hillary Clinton). It's only after years of shows like American Idol and America's Got Talent that his rise is possible. These shows got Americans used to the idea that they could vote with no actual consequences. In most cases (with very few exceptions), people with minimal talent are voted on and selected as "the winner", then almost immediately return to obscurity. In some cases (remember Sanjaya Malakar) there was an actual campaign to rig the vote so that a thoroughly undeserving candidate would win. …

I went to Disney World for Thanksgiving break, and all those germs got to me, and I now have bronchitis. On top of it, my laptop (the only computer I have here in California) suffered from battery swell, and needs to have its battery replaced, which means that the Apple store is holding onto it for 5 days. I’m now sick and without a computer for the upcoming week.

What was your favourite April Fools' Day prank this year? Here's mine to kick things off. If only it were true... Google Japan got creative with a bubble wrap keyboard for typing and relieving stress at the same time. More [here](https://youtu.be/RkJZDvHMyTA)

Before anyone files a bug report, we are no longer pretty printing (using javascript to add line numbers & color coding) code snippets when on mobile browsers for performance reasons. It's not that it was particularly non-performant on mobile. It's rather just that I'm working hard to improve performance across a variety of devices, and I felt like it wasn't worth the trade-off, given it's an extra second or so of javascript parsing in exchange for making code not all that much more readable when on a mobile device.

Long Title: "Here are some top topics recommended just for you" email recommends a thread deleted two months ago. "what are the feature of window 10" was in my email and that looks to have been removed two months ago. As a moderator I can get to it but is the code behind this in need of a little update to not recommend content that was removed? What about folk that don't have this superpower? I'll forward this email back to you via email with comment. In short: 1. Received email from DW on 11/20/2019. 2. Thought I'd read an …

As of today, DaniWeb offers a completely ad-free experience to sponsors!! What do you think? Is it enough to sway you to donate $5/mo for all the benefits you get?

Why is it that when nine innocent Americans get shot and killed by gangs in Mexico, Tom Cotton says the US should basically invade Mexico and clean thisi mess up. But when 40,000+ (2018) get killed by guns in the US the GOP just shrugs its collective shoulders and say "there's nothing we can do"? Never mind. I already know the answer to that.

Any dog parents out there? My sheltie just turned 6 months. She's suuuuuch a smart breed that I literally need to keep her mind occupied every moment throughout the day or she gets bored and destructive. She gets all her meals in the form of puzzles. Today has been especially difficult because she has been non-stop barking every moment *unless* I'm actively training her, playing with her, entertaining her, or feeding her. The moment I walk back over to the computer and try to get back to work, she's back at it. Anyone else here work from home while dealing …

I'm hoping that people will post unusual or little known facts here. It would be proper to include a link to a source for confirmation. Here's a start. Speedy Gonzales was banned by the Cartoon Network for being an offensive stereotype, only to be returned after mass protest by the Hispanic-American community.

Hi All, My names Hasan, I love to answer and even question about things I know and don’t know. I am basically a tech enthusiast with know-how not only in information technology, programming or cloud computing, but also in some distinct areas of my interest like ancient history, warfare, architecture, art etc. And I also do love to watch, discuss, question & answer about my favorite TV series including Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, WestWorld and the list goes on.

Is everyone familiar with this game? Just reply with the first word that comes to your mind when you think of the last word posted. You can't respond to the post with a comment, just the word that comes to your mind. It can only be a word or a short phrase. Also remember to use the arrow --> in between the previous word/phrase and the new word/phrase you just thought of. Also, [b]You can't go twice in a row.[/b] I'll start it off with: Lucy

Sorry for the intermittent downtime over the past few days. We think we were being DDOS'ed, perhaps unclear. However, we've upgraded to new web servers tonight, to bring HTTP/2 support and *finally* move from PHP 5.x to PHP 7. A few years late, I know. Let me know if anything isn't working as it should!

Hi all, I haven't used the forum for a while so lot of the functionalities are new to me and I have to admit I found some of them really counter intuitive/annoying. For a start, the way to reply to threads, that "Reply to this topic" button at the bottom that then turns into a small window which is incredibly annoying. Yes you can press esc and that turns into a full window but there you lose all the formatting options (code, quote etc): why can't we hav a normal full size window with all the options to reply to …

I think we can all agree (this will likely provoke disagreement) that a voting machine that records a vote electronically without a way to do a manual verification is a bad idea. How then should a proper voting machine work. My suggestion is to have a touch screen on which the voter makes his/her selections (invalid selections would not be allowed). The voter would 1. Make selections on screen 1. Print ballot 1. Compare ballot to screen Once the voter receives the printout he/she would then compare the printed ballot with the selections made on screen. At that point the …

Group, I've dabbled in coding (both front end and back end) since the mid 1990s. However I've never done it full time (except for a short stint writing database query's in 2015 and 2016). Because of the economic downturn in 2008 and the sale of Starwood Hotels to Marriott, I find myself with accepting what amounts to temp jobs to (somewhat) support myself. Thus I've pondered the idea of a coding school or a certificated program through one of the local college to gain useful skills in the field. But here's the rub: I'm almost 60. So here are a …

Just wondering how DW is doing re posts. I pass by from time to time and peruse the webdev forum. Apart from code snippets from Dani, I see very little new stuff. Am I missing something? Is it just that forum that's showing old posts? Even when I turn off the filter, it seems pretty quiet.
