  • Yes, and you do it at the point you need to work on that feature. The business pay for it when they want the change.

    You do not pay for the refactor with your time, if the company won’t pay to fix their code. Just make it clear the risks and how bad it could be if you carry on with duct tape fixes.

    You have to be strong and firm and not agree to hacks. You need to work with your team to ensure you’re on the same page rather than getting undermined by cowboy dev claiming he can do the feature in 2 days when it needs 2 weeks to do the necessary work.

  • Many studies have looked into this, culture etc. For example how people conducted themselves in say Nazi Germany or during the Rwandan genocide.

    Simply trying to understand how so many folk can commit such atrocities.

    Knife crime is viewed differently in areas with high amounts of it. It’s more shocking in an area it doesn’t exist. In an area where folk growing up knowing or seeing people being stabbed, it’s seen very differently.

    I don’t think juries should necessarily take it into consideration, but understanding situations, it’s quite relevant. If you’ve stepped into both poor and rich areas, you’ll understand the differences.

    Depends on what you are referring to. If Linux Mobile, Android apps can be run on Waydroid and there is a compatibility layer like Wine available. However, for Linux Mobile, you’ll open up Gnome and KDE apps. In Plasma, you have kirigami which enables convergent apps (that work on desktop, mobile and tablet). As it matures, more apps will be developed that supports it.

    The world and ecosystem now doesn’t define the ecosystems of the future.

    Well it’s open source android, if the code is bad, it’s jettisoned. While I cannot stand Google, not every line of code they write is trash.

    The sandbox is good and you do not need to install Play if you do not want to. I use f droid where possible.

    I want Linux Mobile but it is not ready yet. In the mean time, this is the best we have.

  • If Russia use them and NATO respond with nukes or anything that will cause major problems, they’ll send their nukes to the West (Europe, US), and the West will send them back. These will be done under orders if they do not hear anything, and very little action will be quick enough to prevent it.

    Mutually assured destruction. The question would be who would survive? NZ? South America? Africa? Asia?

    I’m fucked personally as I’m in the UK.

    I would rather we didn’t masturbate over nuclear weapons because what happened to Japan would be nothing compared to the loss of life on a global scale. It is a good option for nobody.

  • I played this. A great game. That era and Bullfrog in particular were incredible. Dungeon Keeper is one of the best games I played. Theme Hospital and Theme Park were great. It was the golden age of strategy games. Age of Empires 2, Heroes of Might and Magic 3. Red Alert games. Railroad Tycoon. I have no idea why this type of game became unpopular.

    I strongly recommend Dungeon Keeper 1 (ideally gold with Deeper Dungeons add on) and Theme Hospital. Can get them on Gog.
