Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Which rightly represents a good portion of Windows Partners/Users. Microsoft rarely (if ever?) presents logic to their false-promises, because they know that people are prone to blindly nod and continue. Its unfortunate that I have to admit that I do like using Microsoft's products, even if I do have a problem with some of the ways their company operates.

Maybe I should have used a car analogy. This IS slashdot, of course. Cars blah blah blah OBDII blah blah blah get new car blah blah blah left without easy diagnostics.
Good point though.
Should you be shopping on PCs you don't manage? If its work related, then I think they may allow for a browser upgrade to save a 6.8% fee. This is how you finally push businesses to start keeping up with progress. Are they still stuck on XP? Well then download fucking Chrome/Opera/Firefox/Safari!
Public school systems in the USA require students to have certain vaccinations in order to enroll in the student-body. Is this fair? For the benefit of man-kind, vaccinate your children and educate the bastards. Its the same thing. For the benefit of the tech industry, we need to enforce certain things. If that means forcing a browser upgrade/change, then so be it. Continuing with old tech is harmful to more than just the people using it. The website could kindly suggest upgrading to the newest version of IE. If that is not possible given the version of the OS, suggest an alternative until the OS can be upgraded. This keeps the anti-competitive levels low. I would suggest the same things for old versions of other browsers as well.
As for the ADA? That's besides the point.
The repurcussions can be catastrophic. This implies that an attacker with knowledge of the backdoor can not only sniff data whenever the chip is used, but can even alter it's functionality. Because of the backdoor being in hardware, there is no alternative but to stop using them until a new, fixed batch can be fabricated, tested, and deployed. Even if the backdoor cannot be used directly, the delay it imposes is, in itself, of great value."

I have no degree and have completed no college at all, I got into this company (which requires a degree) by a family friend in the field alone. I taught myself VB6 at the age of 13, and eventually taught myself C, C++, C#, Java, Python and Perl, along with related skill sets like SQL.
Now finally my question, how beneficial do you believe it would be to at least take night classes and get a computer science degree while taking on the associated debt? My only real concern is currently my ability to find another job in the same field due to lack of degree, not lack of skill. If I stick this out for another 2 years minimum (and I plan to, as I am happy in this job.) How much better will a degree make my resume look to an employer?
