Do you even realize how much your inferiority complex is showing here? I don't know whether to down vote, or reply and point it out. You need a whole new perspective on life, as essentially nothing you've said in your post is commensurate with reality. Your place is cheap because few people want to live there. Your company is a no-name because they're probably not doing anything important. That's the most likely circumstance anyway - you probably have not found a diamond in the rough, and your portrayal of what others find to be the more desirable alternative just moves you further into a deficit.
...hours of experience with HTML, just so they know I mean business?
Geeks are thinkers, by nature. We'll all think off in a nutty direction sometimes, but it's always good to see what's on a few peoples minds.
Slashdot is somewhat international, and we get to moderate posts. It's like reading through the comments portions of an article without all nonsense drowning out the relevant viewpoints.
She doesn't have more progressive views than most in the country. This is yet another issue that proves the country is an plutocracy rather than a democracy. In this instance, a few corporations (who Republicans will have you believe are, "people") are buying up politicians and subverting the will of the masses.
It just happens to be one of the more glaring flaws with our campaign finance and electoral systems. And it still can't be fixed.
That's no where near the same. In your example, I'd have to be 1 in 10 billion people in a hidden room (the cloud), and for anyone to see the sign they'd have to explicitly search me out. Then upon emerging as a possibility for person search, your sign is only one of 10 other signs, several of which will be, "Big Penis," and "Huge Penis," because that's the honest to goodness truth, I tells ya. Then maybe they click on a link where I have a graphical depiction of the member in question.
So it's completely different.
Behavior = Ability * Motivation
The problem is not that certain individuals above a specific threshold can't learn at all, it's that they'll need a little more motivation to perform at the same level as their more able peers.
More than likely they understand casting just fine, they just had to flail around with the available API's to get *something* working, and then were never given enough time before having to move onto the next thing. We've all laughed at our own technical debt .
I would never leave the house.
+1. Politicians at the state level have been paid off by cable companies and ISPs to squash competition from local municipalities. The cities who got in before the legislation are loving their services. It is absolutely insane what money can do in the political process.
Dear Verizon Customers,
We were recently told we needed ~$100,000 worth of equipment. In order to pay for this we're going to need to add an interconnect service fee of $5/month to your bill. Sorry. Try a competitor? Hah, suck it.
PS We have also sued the company who told us this for saying it publicly, and we will most likely charge them more money, too.
To be honest, I don't know much about the tracking feature, but it sounds like something where if one big corporation takes a hit, we'll see more push back from others. Make an example of them. (Please note, I own a lot of Apple products, I'm not anti-Apple by default, just on this issue.)
Some temporary or permanent haircut to their profits is the only way to reach them.
The Russian CPU is guaranteed to have more holes, if any of them are in fact flawed, though. Their citizens are nuts if they don't think so.
I'm calling BS on you firing anyone for this. What programmer these days only knows Python, and thus hasn't uses a language that requires braces?
You're overstating the problem anyway. Blocks are among the easiest concepts to grasp. How do you think some many people were able to pick up Python quickly after using their braced languages? Anyone who can't understand braces will have some other easily noticeable problem instead.
Does the list even change? I'm thinking you basically just add Alan Turing.
That's why there are peer reviews in science, and the need for reproducibility. When there is a 97% consensus, it's well-past the point where we should be arguing with them.
Consider there is an ample amount of agenda-driven motivation to deny that AGW is happening, but very, very few scientists are apt to do so. Your sword swings both ways.
