Being a millionaire is nothing.
Lets assume the average age of a developer is young 30's. by the time they retire, a million won't buy much at all.
Given inflation if someone currently aged 30 starts a mortgage on an average house now, they will probably be a millionaire in property assets alone by the time they retire.
>> 56 percent expect to become millionaires in their lifetime.
yeah and 99% of software engineers also seriously believe their initial time estimate to have that feature implemented by was actually realistic.
...or you could just use libreoffice for free.
Since Snowden's revelation about the NSA's clandestine $10 million contract with RSA,
I hope that as well as checking that the code implements some known encryption algorithm properly, that they also confirm that the algorithm itself is mathematically unadulterated (by the NSA or whoever).
wow I'm amazed that so many people are sooo desperate to pay a staggering $1500 just for a beta version of a head mounted camera that freaks other people out and makes you look like a twat. I think I'll save $1500 and just duct tape my phone to my forehead.ï
Yeah autobahns are cool but am I right in thinking that German car insurance has clauses that it becomes invalid over about 90mph?
When I worked in Bavaria some years ago I was told yes you can drive at 100+mph but if you have an accident it could financially ruin your life as at that speed its out of your pocket.
...the oldest profession.
They're called hookers and "escorts".
It used to be 35hrs a long time ago, however 40+ hours has been the norm in France since maybe the 90's, however compared to the US, all countries in the EU especially France get a lot more holidays days and vacation time as standard.
Nobody is stopping you doing your hobby.
What they are stopping is companies that abuse employees by having an employment contract and pay rate for a nominal 40 hour week, but then they punish those that stick to the contract by not working more hours for free.
What they are also correcting is the mass brainwashing of the middle classes that working for free and 60+ hour weeks is somehow something to be admired/looked up to.
Oh that's what most slashdotters think? Cool then I fit right in
That probably applies to just about every bank.
>> If your business goes bankrupt, then it becomes extremely difficult to launder your supposedly stolen assets.
Well see that's the thing about a bitcoin wallet with a few million in... Its VERY easy to hide then when the shit has died down, later recover it and untraceably sell the bitcoins.
The only thing the cops would have to go on would be after the suspect starts selling them, by watching any bank account they have access to and how it suddenly got a bunch of dollars credited to it. I'm sure there are plenty of ways around that if the suspect was even slightly clever about it. (offshore companies/anonymous bank accounts etc). Even just doing a few bucks every now and then rather than an high visibility giant transfer might be enough.
>> Slashdotters would rather just drive around in Model Ts
Not so sure about that. A lot of start-ups and younger tech companies now seem to be encouraging a culture of self-righteous car-hating hippie-liberals that want to ride pedal bikes everywhere.
Excellent idea making a headset with a Display that is HD-res or better per eye, however very bad idea including the computer in the headset too. I wish they would have just made it a display device that had good tracking.
