Yep. I haven't been asked for a phone number in a long, long time. I go in there looking for their closeout stuff pretty regularly.
I haven't seen a single Radio Shack in the Portland area that doesn't have a cabinet of components. Not one.
So how does that free vs proprietary translate to good programmer vs bad programmer? It's just a different skill set, like a new programming language or a new methodology.
Yeah, like all those quarters, nickels, dimes, and pennies out there. They claim to be "coin", too! They're not crypto currency,either! What a scam!
Just a recommendation for lowering your local water consumption...
Well, for one, you can use it.
Anything I don't like is evil, right?
They should stop everyone who works (for money, fame, bitcoin, flooz, notoriety, et whatever) from editing wikipedia. That's the only way people will stop writing silly, pointless articles like this.
I don't think it's the lack of complexity that makes Visual Basic applications so lousy, in general. I think that it's the ease of use of Visual Basic that facilitates all sorts of people with no training or core programming competency building complex applications. Don't blame the tools, blame the makers. It is possible to write solid application code in Visual Basic. Easier to use, accessible tools make for worse programmers making programs. It's not the simplicity of the tools so much as their ease of use. The same goes for Access.
you can't produce something complex with something simple
I beg to differ. Machine language and assembly code is some of the simplest computer language there is, but it's the basis for all of the higher level programming languages. In an ARM processor there are only 34 commands. From this are derived all sorts of esoteric and mundane high level language operations.
64 bit is better because you use up all your cache memory in half the time. It's better when your cache is full, right?
First we need to legalize the police creating GUI interfaces in Visual Basic in order to track IP addresses.
I've taken interesting jobs that don't pay well in the past (ie not the going rate) and even though I've enjoyed those jobs, I find that eventually I will become resentful. I don't want to, but when you see other people in the same market making substantially more than you it's hard not to. Nowadays, I look at the salary surveys and ask for the median for the position and experience. No more, no less, and I explain to the interviewer this is why I'm asking what I'm asking. So far, this approach has been received positively by interviewers and hasn't seemed to lose any job offers for me.
They use a database of hashes of kiddie porn to identify offending material without forcing anyone to look at the stuff. Seems like it would be ready to use Perl to crawl your filesystem and identify dupes.
I didn't know that. I knew that it was allowed there because of the concept of blood atonement in the Mormon church.
