If you think you're the only Canadian that can't stand it, I don't think you live in Canada. Or are you just trying to express to us how unique you are?
"A poll about the new Mad Max film - i didn't even know a new release existed"
Are you sure you're not living in a bunker in Pakistan?
"... i can guess that the story is about a lonely girl that had a long career in IT as a twitter/facebook account manager, driving a Tesla around the Apple headquarters, assembling an army of H-1B warriors, so she can fight for social justice against the evil Republican gang that try to extend the copyright period of a manuscript kept inside the sacred temple of holy Richard Dawkins"
Ah, okay, you are.
Sure, let's solve this problem by
I don't think you understand games a service.
It helps if you know what you're talking about. Starcraft you can mod all you want in single player, in fact, they effectively encourage Starcraft mods.
They still have 7M subscribers. I'd hardly count that as dead.
Cats only eat a relatively small % of the birds they kill. I'm a cat owner, but the numbers don't lie.
I don't know why I'm continuing this, but if you're going to just reflexively gainsay, you might at least say why the experiments I linked to don't prove what scientists say they do. Bell's work was a long time ago, and while it's still not 1000% nailed down it's very solid. The experiments are all on that side - the only thing on the "alternative" side is vague "I don't think the universe would work that way" crap that has to be very convoluted to match up with experimental reality.
No, they weren't in that state the entire time - the results of real experiments don't correspond with that, or with "hidden variables".
It's complicated, but the Wikipedia article on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B... seems like a good place to start.
Yeah - this is certainly my impression from looking at Google. I've seen a lot of quality programmers who started out there and then left as they got older (and were greatly helped in cashing in by having cool sounding Google experience on their resume).
For me, I went to their offices for a bit (they gave us a tour during Google Code Jam), and while the general idea sounds fun I quickly soured on the prospect of actually working there. I don't care about free cereal or the game console in the break room or whatever. At this point in my career I want an office (rather than a cubicle space 3 feet down from the next guy and backing onto a high-traffic hallway), and I want to go home sometimes.
This shows with 4.2 million records loaded into MapBox to create contour map that stop and frisk was not spread evenly across NYC and shows clear patterns of bias: https://www.mapbox.com/blog/co...
Crazy, eh? It's almost like the information security director wasn't doing a good job. I'm guessing you could find a number of non-optimal things in the setup, given that the person in charge of security was probably not terribly interested in catching himself.
This type of tech - maybe not just in one wave, but things of this nature - should replace standardized testing. To hell with filling in little dots, let the kids actually *create* things and then they are more likely to succeed. Tons of nasty leech organizations grab the kind of money needed for these sorts of initiatives. Swat them away and get creative - and yes 3D printers are manufactured in the US.
Suck it up. None.
Go home, you're drunk. It's not important that it's written in Java. It just is.
"Hi everyone, we wrote this library in a language, but we won't tell you what language we wrote it in, because it's not important."
That's a weapons-grade stupid way to think about it. Man, I couldn't give a shit about Java. Don't use it, don't program in it. Exactly what point do you think you're making here?
