Yes, should have been more specific - you're right, they won't show the exact option, but will hopefully show all options.

comment Side effects of customising a users currency based upon their IP
You could try rendering out all currencies in the mark-up and then show/hide the relevant ones through JS or CSS (I.e. Set a wrapper class based on region and then wrap each currency in a span so you could say .gb .usd {display: none;} to hide all US$ span elements

comment When webservers send a page, why don't they send all required CSS, JS, and images without being asked?
@DavidMeister Again that's a trade off that should really be made be the client, they are more likely to know what their local constraints are. If what you really want is alternate reality answers then your question should be "How can we modify servers and clients to minimise requests". However, you can already do this now: inline all your CSS and JS, base-64 encode your images and add those to the page, and loose out on the parallelization of requests to load your additional resources...

Are there any other steps to this? Ideally we're looking for substantial answers that provide a bit of detail - possibly mention libraries or API calls?

While not as big as the ones in the accepted answer, these may be more available due to the larger number of sets they appeared in.

comment ASP.Net - Using Basic Authentication without having Windows Users
@JoelB No one is saying you can't use basic auth on other platforms, just that IIS (which this question is tagged with) implements it based on Windows accounts. Other web servers on Windows and other platforms are free to implement it how they like (i.e. Apache and its .htpassword generated file for example).

Hi Emily, which phone are you using?

comment When webservers send a page, why don't they send all required CSS, JS, and images without being asked?
@DavidMeister Because the server doesn't always know what the client wants - a webcrawler for a search engine might not care about the CSS/JS, and there are many other resources linked in a document beyond those - there's no need to send the entire RSS feed down in the package to a web browser (most of the content is probably in the HTML already), while a feed reader might just parse the <head> element looking for the RSS alternate links to find just that - the client could send a list of what it's interested in, but then it needs to know what's available and we're back at the beginning

comment How can I rotate an EV3 motor an exact number of degrees using RobotC?
Also - can you post an example of what you have tried - RobotC should support sending specific angles to servos assuming you've configured them correctly...

comment How can I rotate an EV3 motor an exact number of degrees using RobotC?
Is this a duplicate of your previous question - or have you switched from NXC to RobotC? Are you using the interactive servo motors or the medium/large servo motors?
