    techismylife reacted to LogicalDrm in Does that mean there is limited amount of time frame for unactivated Windows?   
    -> Moved to Windows
    There used to be 30-day trial for Windows (90 days for enterprise). Win10 doesn't have that. Not as direct as it used to be. After that trial, you will get some features locked, but it doesn't cripple whole OS as it used to do.
    Using OS after trial has ended is still not quite what you are supposed to do. Its related to piracy to be using OS without valid license. Linus does have some 30-50 copies, so you can't really fault him.

    So far, the desktop versions of Windows 10 don't have a time limit on running unactivated. You can run them unactivated indefinitely, until Microsoft decides not to allow it anymore basically. 
    Server installations can be run with an Evaluation license which typically allows for 180 days until you need to purchase a license. That said though, you can run Windows server unactivated, which I believe is indefinite as well, though I haven't tried it myself as all of mine are activated via AVMA.

    No. You can use Windows 10 without activating for as long as you want, as long as you're willing to deal with the watermark and lack of desktop customization.

    A partition is a single block that starts at sector X and is Y sectors long, thus can't be made of multiple non-contiguous zones.

    techismylife reacted to tarfeef101 in ALWAYS Avoid Global Variables?   
    I'll assume this is a question. 

    A good rule when you encounter these "universal rules" in programming, I think, is this:
    do your absolute best to follow them unless you understand why people say that, and why they could be wrong People often say "don't use switch statements" or (especially this one) "don't use goto". However, both have their legitimate uses, and are the best solution in some cases. If you can say why that is the case, then feel free to use them. If you can't, then probably don't. 
    There are definitely times when writing js code that I have used globals, and definitely times I technically could have, but avoided doing so in favour of a better solution. But, I'm also a CS graduate, and have been working professionally in software development for some time, so I sincerely hope I'd be able to make those determinations 😄

    I will also say this: those rules mostly apply to writing "real" code, when making applications you plan to actually run and do something productive. If you're just playing around trying to learn, don't stress about it. It's much better to keep progressing in your learning experience and commit a couple faux-pas than to run into one, get stumped, and quit.

    techismylife reacted to JacobFW in what is the difference between dom representation and raw html document?   
    So I think there's actually at least two different questions that need to be answered for this to make sense
    1)  How is the webpage you view and interact with generated, both initially and as you use it?
    2)  Is the DOM just a parsed version of the HTML text or is there more to it than that?
    1)  One thing you'll notice on most pages is that if you go into the Inspect Element viewer, and compare that to the HTML when you go to View Source, you'll see that while they may have a little in common, there's still usually vast differences between them (technically they could be the same, but that's fairly uncommon as we're about to see).  When you request to go to a page, your browser will download the initial html (which is what you see under View Source).  In that HTML however are usually script tags, which contains code the browser will execute.  In many sites this code will then finalize the web page that you'll see and interact with, and setup handlers for what happens when you, the user, clicks on certain buttons, or interact with various parts of the pages.  You have to remember that HTML doesn't really "do" anything.  It's more of schematic, that describes how the page should be constructed (think back to old sites from the 90's/early 2000's).  If you click on a button to go to a certain menu or submit an order, it's the script code that runs in the background on your browser, modifying the web page that you see to respond to your requests.
    When you click on Inspect Element, you're viewing all the changes to the web page that have taken place up to that point, starting with the browser downloading the initial source, running the initial scripts, and any other changes the scripts have made up to that point based on how you've interacted with the page.
    2)  The HTML (both what's loaded at the start and what the script code has modified as time has gone on) does govern the overall structure of the DOM, but there is more to it in that.  First and foremost what you have to understand is the DOM is essentially a specialized database, which is designed both to aid the render engine as it creates what you see in the browser, and to allow script to interact with it quickly and easily.  The data in the HTML is parsed and stored in the DOM's internal format, but then the DOM also has the ability to store extra data along with that.  Additionally you can store handlers along with that data, so that if say, the user clicks on this element, it should execute a certain piece of code which the developer can specify, or if say the mouse hovers over a certain box or button, it should show a small tooltip which gives a description of what that's for.
    TBH I feel like this is a case where reading the theory/description of what is happening might just confuse you more.  I would suggest reading some tutorials on Javascript & JQuery, and play around with it yourself.  I think it will make a lot more sense once you see how it works when you use it yourself.

    that is for ASUS to decide. They could chase it. They could decide this is beneficial to sales. It is not your/my/our problem.

    No, those are promo pics, so Asus also gain some benefit from it.
    I think it's considered fair use.

    Most likely these are images that ASUS themselves make available to the press and/or online stores etc. to use when promoting their products. I'm assuming they have some rules posted somewhere that state when and where you're allowed to use these images and what type of attribution is required, if any.

    techismylife reacted to Eigenvektor in Who is responsible for Web T&C, Privacy & Policy? Client or Developer?   
    Whoever owns/operates the website is responsible for its terms, so that would typically be the client. Even if you host the website in the name of your client, it's still the client's responsibility to provide those terms. However, in this case you typically need a contract that regulates what kind of access to the data you have, and it needs to be parts of the privacy policy that e.g. you are acting as a data processor for them. Best to have a lawyer set this up.

    As a developer you're responsible for building the website according to the customer's specifications. You're building "a framework" that can be filled with content. The customer is the one responsible for providing the actual content. Meaning the customer typically provides all images and texts.
    Of course the client could commission a developer to provide a design, in case the developer offers such services, but it's still up to the client to sign off on it. Most customers will have some other agency provide the design and then the developer receives the design they have to follow when building the website.
    The customer is also the one who has to e.g. license those images. It's certainly possible that a developer provides some ready made images the customer can license from/through them, but it's still up to the customer to ensure they have a valid license. Obviously all of this can be changed based on the actual contract between client and developer, but that's how it's typically done.

    Using GDPR as a guide, the client (data controller) is legally responsible for the privacy of the data- the developer/hosting provider (data processor) has obligations to inform the controller of any privacy issues and breaches if they discover them, but it is the responsibility of the controller to ensure that everything is up to scratch, including the privacy policy
