I do find that OSX needs alot of little apps like several have suggested to plug the gaps, Windows has alot of that built straight in.
That’s suprising. I must admit it’s been a while since I’ve seriously used a Windows machine, but I’ve always felt this to be the other way around. Basic stuff like taking screenshots to files, compressing directories, burning CD’s, mounting disk images, etc. And then there’s stuff that’s default in most unixes, such as tar, SSH and Python..
Perhaps I need to try out the newer Windows’ versions sometime, to get a more up-to-date experience.
I dont realy understand this system, i mean, if i do a withdrawal to my paypal account now, i’ll be able to do another one tomorrow because we will be on december or i will only be able to do an other one on the 30 of december ?
You will be able to request a withdrawal whenever you like, but they are processed on the last day of the month, and paid out on the 15th of the following month.
If you issue another withdrawal tomorrow, that’ll be processed on the 31st of December, and you’ll receive that payout on the 15th of January.
As explained on the withdrawal page, you can issue two different types of withdrawals; a specific amount, or whatever is available on the 30th of the current month. It could make sense to issue a request for a withdrawal of ‘all earnings’ tomorrow, even though you might not have earned anything in between; it would be processed on the 31st, withdrawing whatever earnings you have accumulated at that point.
if(sales === 0 && purchases === 0 && firstComment === ‘flagged’) autoDisableEntireThread();
+1 to this idea, but this is what they are doing right now.
if(threadUser === 'doru' || firstCommentUser === 'doru') autoDisableEntireThread();
I can assure you this is exactly what we do
On a more serious note; we are aware of the vast increase in spam, and this is definitely not a situation that we feel comfortable or OK with. As moderators, we’ve recently been equipped with some shiny new tools that should help combat this, and I have faith in the fact that the developers are doing their best to remedy the situation. This is not an acceptable status quo.
That said, I think I would personally support a more ‘exclusive’ forum. I don’t oppose making it publicly readable, but a more strict requirement before posting (perhaps not only a purchase or item authorship, but also people who have been a member for N days and completed basic profile information). With the rate we’re growing, the current set-up seems a bit disproportionate and does not scale as well.
The only solution I can think is to increase the number of forum moderators.
This might be starting to become more necessary.
In reply to version control; if you’re working in a team on the same codebase, this is an absolute must. If you’re unfamiliar with it, spend some time learning git (or any of the others) and just start using it for your personal projects. Not only will it help you in these kind of situations, but you’re bound to run into it sometime in the future when you’re working with others – if you’ve used it before, that’s a definite headstart.
For anyone comparing GUI tools; do consider command-line git. It provides you a clean interface, and you’ll be completely in control. It’s well documented and there are plenty of online tutorials out there
