That's insane! My bank sms me a code which I then enter to perform an external transfer. I hope everything gets sorted out in time.
I got the sh*ts with my bank and their faarrrkkkking SMS shite, so I called them up and told them I've cancelled my mobile due to their SMS shite. They have sent me a shiny new token they have rebadged. I told them I bet it's an RSA Token but they didn't know what I was on about.
Just pulled it out to look at and read the letter, I've got a week left to enable it. Will drop through tomorrow for a bitch in the branch cause I bet the kuntz are gonna want me to use it just to login from now on, even thought the annoying SMS thing was only for certain actions.
In the city for an 08:00 interview for an actual job this time. You available for a coffee late morning? I owe you one.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I've decided, for no particular reason (other than to have fun and expand my horizons), to learn Flash/ActionScript/Adobe Creative Suite. Recently got CS4 installed on my work computer and am working on geting them to upgrade it to CS6. I also have a Lynda.com subscription to help with the learning process. Never thought I'd go this far to the dark side. I'm even considering buying a MacBook Pro in the next couple months. Somebody stop me before I'm too far gone (or is it already too late )!
Are any of you learning something completely useless for your job? ← (interpret that sentence in either of the two ways)
Yep - our house is now resplendent with several iDevices including three (yes, we obviously have too much money) iMacs.
I still haven't been able to bring myself to pay Apple $90 a year to be in the developer program, though, so thus far I can only test my stuff on the emulator.
Next time the wife wins at bingo, I'll cough up, though, then I can upload my game to the App store and spam codeproject to get you all to download it upload an interesting and informative article about its development...
I feel there may be better excuses to buy one - but hey! whatever works for you
(We bought our first one for Mrs _Maxxx_ who really wanted to do not much more than email and Facebook - getting a 27" was a good excuse to use it for watching videos too...
Then I found I could run a Windows VM on it for free - stole it off her and bought a 21" - I now use the 27" for both Mac and Windows Dev (still keep a PC for essentials, like PC Games, but use it rarely)
I must admit to being alternatively amazed and scared witless about Objective-C - but I do love to learn stuff - and PooperPig is teaching me heaps!
Somebody stop me before I'm too far gone (or is it already too late )!
If one loses his way and walks over to the dark side, this one should try to find their way with iOS Maps. Certainly it is the path to enlightenment
Or you could stay there and enjoy the wonderful design and one button (as an Apple-fanboy friend of mine gives up as reasons for being an Apple fan).
I find it curious that the ad at the bottom of the page (Turned AdBlock off for work purposes) lead me to Here[^] which is most likely a scam (The base web-page doesn't exist, every link redirects you to an "a.php", and... Well... Yea)
Tested from my home PC and got the identical ad - I wonder if their ad server's been hacked
The ad under the store (And at the top of the page) - Looks to be a Google Ad by the code (One of the tribalfusion ones), which is worrying - By the URL, it's country based, so probably won't appear your side (One of those flashy "I make $500 a day" type ads - I clicked outta boredom :p)
That's partly why I run ABP - but even with it disabled, all I get is a couple of flash headers (I also run FlashBlock) and a Chrome "Pop-up blocked" for "GH BizOpp". Not that I want to look at ads anyway

How's the Lynda.com subscription working out for you?
I considered subscribing, but I'm only interested in maybe 1 or 2 of their classes at the moment.
Do you have access to ALL their videos for as long as you are a subscriber? Can you download any of the videos for keeps?
I've not explored it much yet, but it has a vast library of things I find potentially useful, and the videos are very polished. I think something like 10% of their videos are available for free if you want to see how you like them.
Their player is neat too. Allows you to choose the format (Flash, QuickTime, Windows Media, etc.) and allows you to bookmark parts within the video for later reference.
Yep, you can access all their videos as a subscriber. Though, you must pay a premium to have any files associated with the videos (e.g., source code). I think the normal account is $25/month, and the premium is around $30-$40/month.
I've not tried downloading any videos, though I think you can purchase videos from their DVD library (pretty costly, IIRC).
