Comment Certification? (Score 4, Informative) 123

Have you considered online education towards a certificate in machine learning? For example, The University of Washington, via Coursera, offers a certificate in Machine Learning after about 30 weeks of study and a capstone project. You'll need some background in statistics, and familiarity with Python, and you'll have to put in several hours a week. Total cost is about $500.

Well, they cited the issue of fitting the hands of smaller shooters, so in the modern day none of these firearms are really applicable.

A gen 4 Glock comes with multiple backstraps --- I can pick the one I want and get the hand size I want. My hands are too small for a gen 3 Glock 20 or 21 but can grip a gen 4 21 with ease.

Comment To disable AirDrop (Score 4, Informative) 94

Check to see whether it's disabled already, open a command prompt and run:

defaults read | grep DisableAirDrop

If it returns DisableAirDrop = 1, then you should be fine. If it comes up blank, or if it shows DisableAirDrop = 0, then AirDrop is not disabled by default. In this case, run:

defaults write DisableAirDrop -bool YES

You'll need to log out and log back in for the change to take effect.

No. Really, no.

If you're attracted to someone and they are not attracted to you, and you act like an idiot about it, that's being creepy.

If you're attracted to someone and they are not attracted to you, and you continue to act appropriately around them, that's fine.

In particular, if you want to succeed in the modern work environment, you're going to need to learn how to be professional with people who you find attractive and who don't find you attractive. This really isn't a hard skill to pick up, it just requires a change in attitude around your co-workers.
