Comment: test software but not hardware / road conditions (Score 2) 118

may help test software but not the full hardware and how well it works in all kinds of weather / settings. Also what about road conditions / slight lines? odd traffic light layouts / intersections? Just useing google street view as the input likely will not get the full lay out from each lane / all times of day / all cycles.

the require college degree can be used to get rid of US workers / make so weed you a to X degree that the H1B has an a US worker is unlikely to have. X being one that can be one from an non us UIN and or not even an CS / tech one.

Also IT jobs do not need college degree any ways.

Also add forced OT pay for 60+ hours a week (if the OT is over 50% of the year) and X2 OT at 70-80+ (removes the lock to job (can't say no to ot) and get the work of 2 out of one)

as long as there is a high min wage + OT pay for them.

As some places use them as cheap workers chained to the job.

also if they want to use them as the best then they should be locked to that job with just about no time to find an other (h1bs have to get out as soon as there job is over) if they get fired or layed off.

uniforms have there own rules in alot of places.

In all 50 states the basic part is you have basic wear AKA no logos / basic Dress Code then they don't have to pay. If they force your to have there shit's / etc the costs can't pull you under mini wage. If they force your to have there shit's / etc in some states they must pay for them and in other they must pay all costs.

$230 per website that you use + you still need to your ISP the costs of running the local system that get's you on line. also I see that you have basic TV for $50 more a year for 1 year you can get our triple play plan with faster downloads + 1 year free HBO + hardware rent fees. and for only $70 more for 1 year X1 dvr, extreme 105, HBO and MAX. Come on you want faster internet and more tv right?

There are too many linux distros for desktop to work good also package maintenance needs to be more windows like.

Where as you can install 3rd party apps with out braking stuff / have them be able to point to / bundle with the needed run times with out them needed to be part of the main app store / package manger system.

  As well being able to have things like use ones that are build for package manger systems. Like on windows as you can use app that use install shield, Installer VISE, apple update, Windows Installer, etc side by side without hitting major Dependency hell

the Chicago area was even more a odd ball as in the past the old digital pack (that had some of the old analog channels moved to digital along time ago) became preferred or classic. That was before DTA and analog and digital channels having the same number Then (in the city of systems) killed alot of the analog but did not move the channel numbers but the rest of Chicago land lost some analogs to digital where you had to pay more + about $5 per tv for the box.

you big fault was holding on to a cable box for 1+ year unused that may of dropped off of the system or that you where in area of Chicago land that still had a big analog lineup. I also think that in the past parts of the city of Chicago systems had most of the analog lineup scrambled. But the city of systems where on of the first Comcast systems to go all digital.

Comcast found a way to really rip off most of Chicago land and did some odd stuff. In some areas in the past

TCM is limited basic in some areas and in preferred in others. (not any more)

AS some systems (but not all) in the area have speed in the sports pack. out side of chiagoland land on comcast it is in Analog / digital expanded basic?

some systems had

also is sci-fi in comcast digital preferred / classic. (costs about the same as Direct tv HD DVR) to get hd dvr on comcast add $15-$20/m per box.
out side of chiagoland land on comcast it is in Analog / digital expanded basic. (back in 2007-2009)

the real killer was where they where doing the big analog to digital about half way though it they changed it so you did not get CLTV on the DTA's. But that also meant that you lost most CSN + games unless you got a full SD or better cable box at $6-$8 a TV.
At the same time WOW cable had CSN and CSN + on analog. The DTA where billed as get the same as your old analog lineup. As for why they did not give CSN + SD it's own channle was very odd as the HD one (took over the old MOJO HD for part time needs) that just shows looping help videos. useing cltv for over flow dates back to the old sports channel days.

It get odder later on as when CLTV added an HD feed RCN seemed to put in there CSN + HD slot (they also have both an CLTV SD and an CSN + SD slot).

Comcast did not add the HD feed of CLTV or spilt off CSN + to it's own channel. (other then a few events / games that have been on CN101)

also other systems that did not have CLTV even doing the time CLTV was Comcast only still had ALL CSN feeds. There was even an time where both att-uverse and directv had 3 live HD feeds of CSN CHI (there where 3 live games on at the same time) but Comcast only had 2 in HD.

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
