Look at the % of females graduating at top colleges with computer science degrees, it's small %. At top schools it's only 14%. A 32% target is only possible if they hire unqualified candidates or the % is balanced by non-tech positions (e.g.: HR).

Or, are you sexist and believe that the 14% of women entering college are proportionally superior to 86% of the males?

Until more women become interested in tech careers expecting to see significant changes in hiring isn't going to happen (other than by failing or soon to be failing companies).

I've been using Voobly.com for a few games that used to by hosted on GameSpy. In many cases, they've added some excellent third party patches, such as the AoE I HD fan patch @ http://www.voobly.com/pages/vi... -- features include: HD resolution support, multi-mon, new map sizes, new map types (all free). Their AoE II support is 2nd to none, adding features like spectator mode (supporting over 100 spectators).

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.

Working...
