Re: Compiler Speed Nowadays

I find it interesting how much Visual Studio users depend on online debugging; perhaps because actually outputting and grepping through a log is so painful in that environment. It's a circle (I won't say whether it's vicious or virtuous); VS users tend to use the debugger a lot, which makes them mo...

Re: Compiler Speed Nowadays

To be honest I have the feeling that development tools under Linux are so cumbersome compared to Visual Studio that I don't want to step away from it. When I really like a piece of software I'm always willing to pay for it, I don't want everything for free. I have that feeling with visual studio: "...

Re: Blunder option

Embla and Micah both have a blunder-option. Unfortunately it is default on and cannot be switched off.

Re: *** General user warnings ***

Well, the guy I consulted (you could say GDPR is "his day-job") must be wrong then. Seems so, or you misunderstood him. But hey, why do you ask random people instead of just looking up the legal text? You want to read GDPR Art. 83.4, 83.5, and 83.6: https://gdpr-info.eu/art-83-gdpr/ No that would b...

Re: *** General user warnings ***

Those fines are limited to a percentage of your income. Wrong. Up to 20 million EUR or 4% of your annual revenue - whichever is higher . Read the GDPR, it's right on their website! Obviously, that is only the upper limit and not the likely actual fine. That's why I wrote "theoretically". But a few ...

Re: *** General user warnings ***

Ah ok, thanks for the detailed motivation, that clears it all up! I'm not motivated to inform you about GDPR basics, especially not after such a snarky posting. I happen to know someone who knows someone who... and that guy knows about GDPR. There are no upload-filter requirements yet. Its actually...

I have a feeling that you have no clue what you're talking about regarding GDPR etc.
I have a feeling that you are totally wrong. Of course the GDPR doesn't apply just to commercial projects.

HOSTIX ... I can speak with Andreas (Admin) from Hostix. www.hostix.de I'm against hosting the forum in the EU because then "someone" would need to take responsibility for GDPR (DSGVO) compliance, and be ready to pay hefty fines. That's theoretically up to 20 million EUR. I don't think that anyone,...

The problem is not my bad English.
I find this a bit confusing. You keep saying that your english is so bad and pretending not to understand anything of what is written here, yet if I look at your website http://www.amateurschach.de/main/_about-me.htm your english ain't bad at all?
