I just check, Katz is no longer a filter option on my profile, if he comes back I'll be forced to see Welcome to the Hellmouth: A 20 year Retrospective on the front page.
You're 30. Get over it. You're never going to have that cool job with that great start-up that goes public for a gazillion dollars. That ship has sailed. Even if you could find that company, convince them you're great, and get hired - the hours will kill you. Have a house? Say good bye because you'd have to move. Hope you don't have a wife and kids - because they don't last long with a startup work schedule. Are you independently wealthy or have a fully funded retirement- because otherwise you'll be screwed in 30 years. Working for startups that fail to launch means the stock options or ESOP plan is worthless. Do that for a few rounds and you'll be asking Slashdot: I'm 40 with nothing what can I do now?
Don't want to work for a startup? Going to try and work with an existing large corporation? Good luck with that. Those soulless bastards will fuck you over to make the next quarter's EBITDA. Look at all of the other posts where people are asking: " I've been in tech for 15 years. Who the hell do I have to fuck to get out?"
You want advice? Keep your 9 month a year jobs with pension and benefits. Use the summers to run a training/consulting business teaching people in local small business that they can use a VLOOKUP in excel instead of hand typing values into Excel 100 rows at a time. Use the extra money to buy a convertible. Go out and bang a 19 year old aspiring actress. Hell, bang two.
To join the dog pile: I've been here since '97. At one point I had a 5 digit UID but forgot the password. It is unbelievable how bad this is. I though m.slashdot.org on the iPAD was hideous, but this is just foul.
Obviously, they're trying to dump the perl/slashcode backend. Otherwise why are certain features forthcoming? And asking us for what features are they missing? Really, have you looked at the site? There's your spec right there: Old site: User comments listed on a users profile provide a link back to that comment. New site: Just a link back to article. If you want to see your replies, you can scroll down, click load more, until you find your comment.
I guess we now know what happened to all of the idiots that used to make horrid pages on geocities - They became redesign fanboys at Dice.
If developers are forced to update their apps, then owners of old iPad, Pod, and Phones will be forced to upgrade as well. My Ipads have been left at ios5 with no upgrade path available. Eventually, I will no longer be able to buy apps in the app store.
So your time is only worth $10/hr. So much better than minimum wage.
From high school English, there are 31 acceptable uses for a comma. Evil English teacher made us label every comma used in our writing assignments. I no longer have his list but found what appears to be an equivalent list here http://www.grammarly.com/handbook/punctuation/comma/
Your comments would be given more weight , if you were not an AC. Perhaps thou are a shill?
Absolutely. A random test of a cow supposedly not destined for the food supply gets tested positive. And we are to believe everything else is OK? I think a new guy on the job didn't get the memo and tested the wrong cow. Lets see how quickly they expand the testing. All QC policies I've worked under, allowed for decreased sampling until a defect was found, then a full statistically sample had to be pulled and tested.
Cthulhu in 2012. Why settle for the lesser evil?
It is very sound. California needs money. Amazon has it.
Free for Users, charge for companies.
My company just dumped Lotus Notes for Google Apps for domains - 55k users now using Gmail & Docs all for a flat rate per-person per-year which is much cheaper than our annual Lotus costs when you factor in specialized staff, admin, hardware and licensing.
How about the USPS? They have offices in every town and already process your paperwork for Passports.
How else can they verify your Junk Food Insurance Waiver, notify the Obesity Reduction Task Force as to your weekly consumption, and confirm your exercise log at your local America Works Out franchise.
Besides, it won't be papers - they'll put a chip in our heads.
Especially for the brain tumor era books. I Will Fear No Evil and The Number of the Beast come to mind.
