Why do I recognize that name? What other stupid shit has she said?
And neither does "blaming the victim".
I make less than half of what I could be making. But I'm also making four times what I need to pay the bills, which means early retirement, hello! And if I ever found myself unable to work in the tech industry, I could still pay the bills working in a grocery store.
So they can serve you ads.
Visually stunning film at 11.
Relying on an IDE makes you a more productive programmer. Programmers who think they're elite because they use some primitive text editor are simply wasting time. If that's your attitude, why are you writing code on a computer at all? Why not go back to punched cards? Or cuneiform on clay tablets?
Agreed. And where other hospitals try to provide all the care they think they can bill your insurance for, the VA is trapped between trying to be fiscally responsible and being seen by the public as taking good care of our veterans. It's a tough position to be in. I've had good and bad experiences with the VA, but mostly good. And I'm a priority 7 patient or whatever level it is that means broke as hell but without any service-connected disability.
I've often thought the same thing. Too bad most lawyers are the analogues of the horrible developers coming out of code mills in Bangalore.
The US and Japan aren't still bombing each other. But Microsoft is still pulling the same stunts. In fact, they never stopped. They just kept doing it until it seemed normal and the government forgot why it was angry.
It's the Microsofting of Google.
...to test the Windows performance of Java programs I write on Linux.
The only reason anyone "needs" more than $60K a year is because of their proximity to even larger concentrations of wealth. To the extent that wages "trickle down", so do prices.
Because the upper middle class is both beneficiary of and political buffer for the uber-elite. If the tax structure made them the new upper class, their wealth and power would actually increase despite their nominal decrease in pay. Their resistance to this is both self-destructive and harmful to the rest of us. If they can't be made to see that, then they should be thrown under the bus.
Some jobs are harder than others, and deserve to be rewarded more than others. But absolutely nobody "earns" more than a small multiple of minimum wage, and this should be enforced with a progressive tax structure based on an algorithm in which the only variable is the minimum wage. At today's minimum wage, astronauts, brain surgeons, and the President of the United States should be making about $60K a year, and it should only go down from there.
...simply by providing the pieces of the J2SE API that are missing from the Android API. And the door is wide open for them to "embrace, extend, and extinguish" Google's Android while lowering the bar for developers and raising the quality of apps. Google has a bizarre obsession with making Android run in an ever-smaller footprint when phone and tablet hardware is obviously trending in the opposite direction. The decisions Google made to allow the OS to aggressively limit its memory use require Android developers to carefully adhere to a complex API that forces you to manage a lot of tedious details yourself. And the platform punishes faulty MVC separation more than any other I've encountered. It's a platform for expert developers, which seems contrary to the concept of Android as popular, open, and accessible.
