Wow, this is old. I thought Slashdot usually ran a day or so behind, but 21 years!?
That was in response to this:
Go watch more faux noose and leave the technical chatter to people actually in the industry, fucknut.
As this isn't a technical conversation, I took it to mean that I don't belong on Slashdot as I am not technical enough to join the conversation.
Also, if you were any good as a "systems engineer" they wouldn't have you working on email, that's a lower rung than even web backends.
So, email, the most vital system to many companies is a low rung system? What do you consider high rung than? Where I work, it is domain, email/storage, etc, but then you must be a programmer who thinks he is hot stuff because he can write code. I design business critical systems, what did you do today?
Of course, I'm the one who has it wrong right?
Read the first line.
But of course my kind doesn't rely on facts and figures, I just make things up. You are funny.
Oh, and for technical cred, I currently am a systems engineer working specifically on email systems design. I have the technical cred, do you?
Nuclear weapons aren't the only kind of WMD. Iraq had chemical and biologic weapons. We knew they were there as they had used them on the Kurds, and the US sold them to Saddam.
WMD did exist, and were found.
As far as Kespersky, they have said there was some evidence of a possible EST in the build of stuxnet. However, this could just as easily be someone in Russia's time getting home from work rather than someone in the US going into work. It also doesn't give any kind of conclusive proof of US involvement in Stuxnet/Flame. Without proof, it is just a theory, therefore shouldn't be put forward as fact.
Except no one does more than speculate this, even Kespersky. There is still only speculation as there is no actual evidence of who did it.
You might want to check the weight of those more efficient vehicles again. Hybrid/Electric cars weight more than a comparable ICE vehicle.
Exactly. Every time the minimum wage is raised, it is worth less and less. When you raise minimum wage, prices rise and that amount will always be worth less and less. The worth of the minimum wage has only gone down since 1968, despite being repeatedly raised because the lowest paid are always going to be the lowest paid, no matter how much you pay them.
I'm not the one calling people idiots while not being able to spell basic words.
So, because this specific tree that you choose is different, somehow the forest as a whole has changed entirely, lets just call it a field instead.
No matter how much you pay the bottom 10%, it will always be the bottom 10%. When someone does a job that can be done better by a machine, what kind of pay do they deserve?
So, rather than trying to actually dispute what is being said, you go off on the source of the information. I see you never learned how to think critically, perhaps that is why you make minimum wage?
So you are saying that because Fox reported this, and Red Alert Politics repeated it, that the pizza joint isn't going out of business as it can't afford to pay the payroll anymore.
Public assistance is based upon supporting a percentage of the population. When wages increase, the needed assistance also goes up. There will always be a bottom 10% of people, no matter how much you pay the bottom 10%.
The low end always will qualify for assistance, it doesn't matter how high the low range is, this will always be true.
Stagnated? It is almost higher than it ever has been adjusted for inflation.
