comment How to deal with students who lose their digital work?
While it is fine to tell the students that it is 'their responsibility', I've never been to a University that taught students how to manage their digital content. It's not rocket science, but it's not immediately obvious and most students don't realize the shortcomings in their system until it's too late. Every company I've worked at, post college, has had an IT department, with IT professionals, develop the backup strategy. It seems reasonable to me, that the university should do the same, or at least, provide guidelines for an acceptable data policy.

comment Does the shape of a wine glass affect the taste of the consumed wine?
aromadictionary.com/articles/wineglass_article.html seems to address the smell aspect pretty well.

comment Irish Green Card & Employment Probation Period
IANAL - but my experience matched this. Got my Irish green card without problem/the 6 month was in the handbook but largely a formality.

comment How to renew a US driver's license when living abroad
@GdD - It might be easier - but I'm not sure it's even legal. NY seems to have clear residency requirements you need to meet for a license ('As used in this section, the term "resident" shall mean domiciliary, that is, one who lives in this state with the intention of making it a fixed and permanent abode'). Obtaining a license when you aren't a resident could potentially cause problems. (dmv.ny.gov/driver-license/drive-new-york-state)

comment How do I renew a USA drivers license if I am as US citizen living abroad with no state address (last address Texas)
@DavidSegonds - Texas requires 'Individuals who do not currently live in Texas but their true, permanent home (domicile) is in Texas'. Unless your domicile is in Texas, you can't just stop in the DMV and obtain a license without misrepresenting your situation.

AFAIK - (legally) you can't. You need to be a resident of a particular state to get a license in that state.

comment University teaches DOS-style C++, how to deal with it
Most Universities teach undergraduates with the goal of allowing them to be successful in obtaining a masters degree. Most masters degree programs teach master students with the goal of allowing them to be successful in obtaining a PhD. Most PhD programs aim to help you become a successful researcher.

I think you are right - just tried it with FireFox v30 and it worked. Very frustrating :)

@JackArbiter - The network tab does not show the .mp3 files being downloaded. The console shows the error pasted above, for each .mp3 file I have. After I load any individual .mp3, and reload the page - the console shows nothing and the .mp3 files still don't appear in the network tab. I can see the images/.js/.css files though.

@EvanKnowles - I've just tried on another machine on another network to avoid any local caching. But the behavior is the same in FF 31
