Hmm, go a bit easy on the frustrated comments of people who might be looking at a change of major!

I'm right in line of all this. High School science was different. It's hard to say, but it was "fundamental" enough. If you grow up prowling around the pop-sci section of a bookstore, it's not delusional to think "well gee, maybe I'll study science". So I made it through Freshman year in college still kinda enthused.

Then over summer break I got hold of discard-copies of old versions of the textbooks and collapsed. The combination of Calculus and Organic Chem (and then beyond!) sunk me. Plus I suk at anything spatial involving curves. But the un-sung third point is that I didn't want to spend nine months in a lab recording tedious results and then produce one crispy little paper, and then do it all over again.

So I went back as a business major. I'm clever, but most of y'all here are brighter than this ol' humanities bird. But also it felt "Closer to the ground". Pay a bill in AP. Close a Monthly period. Post Stuff to a contract. "Stuff" gets "done" and it sticks.

It's pretty easy to slap a mobo into a case and maybe some cards and call it building a PC.

In the day I can recall BYTE magazine running a series of articles that published the schematics to a computer you could actually assemble from parts at home. You needed to actually place all the resisters, ICs, and gubbins on the board, and solder it all together and hopefully get a working machine from that.

The only ones who backed out of the conference (as far as I can tell) were going to talk about hacking Sharepoint. While I'm sure that's useful in some situations, it sounds like an extremely boring talk.

And kinda entry-level. I'm just generalizing here, but based on my own interactions with SharePoint, I strongly suspect that nobody ever sat around, racking their brains about how to hack a SharePoint site.

That would be silly, but a rather fun fact is that the despite Java being promoted as simpler than C++ for so many years, the latest Java language spec (excluding libraries) is shorter than the latest C++ spec (excluding libraries).

Did you mean to say the Java spec is longer than the C++ spec? Because I would think Java having a shorter spec would be a point in favor of its relative simplicity.

It is based on the fact that all human fields of knowledge use without exception logic as the tool to solve problems and math is the formalization of logic.

That is just not true. For a starters, it is a meta-physical question whether the mathematical laws really model anything, and already we are outside of "logic" and into the larger field of esoteric experience. Science itself is an esoteric experience, because you know things through an experience of knowing. Spend some time studying epistemology, and you'll figure out that logic isn't as straight-forward as it seems, and certainly doesn't encompass all fields of human knowledge.

Now I believe that there is a non-self-referential epistemology that grounds the stuff of through in physical laws, but as of today, we've barely come up with an acceptable definition of addiction that isn't self-referential, and have no clue what thoughts really are -- the so called "hard problem".

Moreover there are many scientific problems that take generations to be solved.

Sure, but without exception they end reduced to math problems. Math encompasses all fields of knowledge, because math is the formalization of logic itself. Those scientific or engineering problems that took generations to solve, took generation either because the math they needed didn't exist yet, or because testing hypothesis and generating knowledge was a slow or unfeasible process.

They are thus either reduced to math problems that took generations to be solved, or measurement problems that made them impossible to be solved until the right tools existed for the task.

Ah, the good old days! The most insane overclock I ever saw back in 486 days was a friend of mine who dragged his 386 around to play a bit of Doom. We were all running 486DX33 / 486DX66 machines which powered through Doom and figured the 386 would be a pretty poor contender - right until he fired it up and loaded the game. It was screaming along as well as the 486s were, and that's when he told me he had overclocked it to something like 99mz. He reckons it took ages to find a chip he could do that to, but there were tons of them at his work no longer in use so he swapped them in and out till he found a really good one :D

Where I work, currently, is, in fact, like being stranded on a (noisy) island (with poor reception).

The only truly measurable difference being that it's an underground repair facility and not an island. I don't have one with a physical keyboard because of contamination by chemicals, etc. The Lumia was in an Otterbox, which I'd remove on days off - I really liked the feel of the 920.

Since the lenses are tiny (to deliver light to really tiny sensors) it's not going to be horribly expensive for those Zeiss lenses to be decent in the tiny bit of glass that matters. Of course there won't be much light coming in.
Unless something has changed drastically lately a very small 41MP sensor is going to be a bit noisy anyway so could be a weaker link than the optics.
To me this just looks like a hack to get digital zoom for OK snapshots in good light instead of going for detail, and since the sensor doesn't seem to be stupidly expensive I can see their point, which is not to replace even an early DSLR but to provide better "casual snaps".
