I, for one, think it's a great idea, if it's really free and not just a honey-trap to suck in newbies and later charge them for options that are actually required, not optional. Pardon us for being a bit cynical, but a lot of crapware comes across this site, hidden behind various guises of legitimacy, so this is a tough house to play in. We've become a tad rude, I suspect, but that's the way the dog wags these days, I'm afraid. If you're for real, stick around, and we'll get nicer. If not, go away. Now.
That screwed with me for a few minutes. The proxy at my job blocks YouTube, but you can opt to visit it if it's work related (which, obviously, this is... that's my story and I'm sticking to it). However, it wasn't loading at all when I went to your URL.
Turns out it was because of the HTTPS. Proxy doesn't seem to like that.
After having spent most of yesterday and today installing Visual Studio 2012, updates for it, Azure Tools for 2012, and Azure Tools for 2010, I was just thinking it would be nice if installers that say "this could take a few minutes" instead presented a normal distribution of how long it takes for actual users. For example:
This install typically takes:
-Under 1 minute for the fastest 5% of installs.
-Around 5 minutes for typical installs.
-Over 20 minutes for the slowest 5% of installs.
I doubt very many installers will actually take the time to gather and present statistics like this, but it'd be nice.
So it'd start out with no real info (and could say so) but would then improve to give a very good sense of both how long it is likely to take, and how well spec'ed your computer is compared to others using the product.
Nice idea! I might steal that, if you have no objections?
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
I know I'm going to take some fire for this question but please bear with me.
I've been looking at trying to build a program that will allow me to edit my contacts on various services from one location.
Everything has gone smoothly until I found out that Apple's iCloud API didn't support Windows.
I am aware that Apple has an iCloud web interface so I considered programmatically logging in and retrieving my data.
i. interfere with or disrupt the Service (including accessing the Service through any automated means, like scripts or web crawlers), or any servers or networks connected to the Service, or any policies, requirements or regulations of networks connected to the Service (including any unauthorized access to, use or monitoring of data or traffic thereon);
Does that mean no automated access at all or just no malicious access? I have no plans of "interfering" or "disrupting" iCloud with this application. So does it apply to me?
