Now let's talk about the real problem. We can discuss feeding enough power into your building later. At 1/3 of a rack, I suggest you go shopping for wheelbarrows to transport the cash you are going to need to fix your real problem. - Don't feel bad, we all have this problem.

I suspect that little patent tidbit is causing more problems than you can imagine. If the company wanted your patents, they would have bought them from you. Now, they are just trying to figure out if you will be skimming their IP and trying to patent it.
Next time, tailor your resume to the job you are after and leave the irrelevant fluff out. Forcing strangers to make decisions about you is not a good idea. THEY DON'T LIKE DOING THAT. You either meet some of their requirements or you don't. You repeat their requirements back to the and explain how you can fulfill them. Once you start talking about being a "self starter" or "working well under pressure" or your GPA or all the things you do in your life that will distract you from what they want you to do, they start talking about those things too. Because the job interview part is over.

But in the real world, well, we still have people using Windows 95.

If you want to fix their broken spreadsheet problem, maybe they should use SUMIFS (and stop calling you for help). In fairness, you probably didn't charge her anything, which works out to be the right price. Of course if she had called me, I would have told her to spend the 300 bucks on a new computer and not charged her either. Although my solution and insight was worth much more than yours.

Maybe they'll just drop the filemanager next.
Thankfully, I don't use this crap, I have bigger worries. Like sticking with Debian5 until the Systemd fiasco blows over.
I think this exposes a gaping hole in the free software philosophy. - It's free to use until somebody decides to take it away from you, because they're just not smart enough. Really, this is not a big deal, mostly because chrome is not a big deal. Not anymore.

Wow, that was the nicest criticism of someone's comments I've seen in awhile. Still, I have to go with the parent. He's not trying to prove he's smarter than everyone else. Rather, he reasons anyone that comes near FP in their work is expected to at least take it into account. In engineering, like traffic court, ignorance of the law is no excuse.
The crux of the issue is people claiming expertise in their field where none exists. F@#$%ng moron would be more precise.

Researchers have had some success transplanting insulin-producing cells from cadavers into people with diabetes. But it's been difficult to procure enough cells to treat large numbers of patients. So scientists have been trying to figure out how they could get more cells more easily.^H^H^H^H^H^H cheaper.

Because, how much easier does it get than lifting stuff from a dead guy?

Comment: statstician writing a computer program isn't math (Score 0) 127

And it isn't programming. The only thing worse is a programmer that doesn't know math or statistics. There are a few companies that are trying to get a handle on machine learning and pattern recognition and matrix algorithms. Sadly, there is no real market for that stuff yet, so instead we run "quicksorts" on genome and try an predict endings for stupid games.
Occasionally,some genius will try his hand at encryption and give us heartbleed.
Do you know how many servers out there that are still vulnerable? LOTS. Maybe a systemfuckingd dev will fix that one automagicaly, because evidently, there is nobody left in IT that can manage to get 2 startup scripts to run anymore

Actually Windows 8 seems to do a better job than windows 7. After 2 years I haven't touched my windows 8 system in this respect. As an added bonus most of my data is on network drives, so the ease of laying down a base image is the least painful of all.
Linux suffers just as much from cruft buildup and most of my linux installs are on VM snapshots. Defrag a hard disk? Wow haven't even thought about that in years.

Unless you live in North America (but don't work for a Canadian hospital), are still in school, use a really crappy computer, and are willing to wade through months of red tape.
Seriously Adobe, is this some kind of plot to make Microsoft look open source friendly?
