Agree with parent. I have lived in Bellevue, King County for a few years. It's lousy weather except for July - September.
Motorola had made one - and it was dirt cheap - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorola_Fone
It was around 30$ without a contract if I remember correctly.
I'd rather interview a programmer who doesn't have a flashy resume and doesn't try to show off his coding ability because it's often the case that these kind of programmers are the best to have around.
This sort of sounds like the method George Costanza uses to select a student to give an academic scholarship to in an episode of Seinfeld.
GEORGE: Ladies and gentlemen, this (Opens the door, Steven is standing there) is Steven Koren. His G.P.A. is a solid 2.0! Right in that meaty part of the curve - not showing off, not falling behind.
WYCK: George, the quailifications for this scholarship were suppose to be.. largely academic.
GEORGE: I'm sure we're all aware of the flaws and biases of standardized tests..
WYCK: These aren't standardized tests - these are his grades.
For version control, Google uses Perforce, a commercial product, and about the only thing out there that could handle a multi-terabyte codebase which receives thousands of commits per day -- how many code repositories measure their performance in commits per second? However, I understand that Google has had to customize it extensively.
Strangely, Microsoft also uses Perforce. They have the source code & it's heavily modified. It's called source depot in Microsoft. I absolutely love Perforce as compared to any other version control system I have been exposed to - especially CVS. CVS is piece of rubbish.
Typically, you insure against disaster/catastrophies. Having a cough or a cold or a minor injury is not a disaster.
Home Insurance doesn't cover your day to day repair stuff.
That's how medical insurance should be. Medical costs increase because a doctor now has staff to deal with the insurance bureaucracy and billing. And the doctor has to figure out what's covered not covered etc.
What kind of disruption? Carlsen has been World #1 since Jan 2010. He hit the highest ELO rating in the history of chess also in Jan 2010. He is also 100 points ahead of the current #2 - Kramnik. He didn't even competer in the World Championship last year when Anand defended his title against the World #20.
This has been done by a Swedish Company - http://www.behaviosec.com/
They have a continuous monitoring a system and also a product which can be integrated into a Web Page Post Form for a 2nd Factor of Authentication. I have played around with their Web Product - it's very good to be used as a secondary mechanism.
They are also working with DARPA - http://www.behaviosec.com/darpa-and-behaviosec-go-beyond-passwords/
So I am wondering if the Iowa University project is an extension on this?
The original Behaviosec product came out of a research project in a Swedish University and the people running the company include students who did the original project.
I have watched several Monty Python stuff. There are a few skits here and there which are very funny. But a lot of them are boring.
OTOH, I am a big fan of John Cleese's Fawlty Towers. I have watched every episode atleast 20 times and it's always amazingly funny.

It's surprising the number of people who think Sherlock Holmes said "Elementary, my dear Watson". Holmes didn't utter that exact phrase in any one of the books written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Milan prosecutors say Apple failed to declare to Italian tax authorities 206 million euros in 2010 and 853 million euros in 2011, one of the sources said, confirming a report by Italian magazine L'Espresso.
The Italian subsidiary of Apple booked some of its profit through Irish-based subsidiary Apple Sales International (ASI), thus lowering its taxable income in Italy, the source said."

They didn't do everything. They did only the needful.
I don't know what NASA can come up with $ 83 Million
They will give it to CGI Federal to make nasa.gov web site which crashes & then ask people to call a 800 number where a cal center employee would describe what would have been shown if the site hadn't crashed.
That's good for end of day. But a good communicator communicates doesn't wait till the end of the day to communicate. Send out chain emails & jokes to the team every hour on the hour. This even helps with the end of the day email where you summarise what your did through the day.
