No way, man. He can only afford a new iPhone every other year! That's bordering the poverty line.
Don't think he was a duck. From the fact that he was about to give us a list of real languages but then failed to do so, I can only assume the last "ducks" was him exclaiming at being overwhelmed by a wave of ducks, that subsequently ate him.
Yes, I am quite sure the real problem is he was a victim of.... fowl play.
That's entry level C++? That list sounds like at least a mid-level C++ programmer... how are they supposed to be entry level but have had the experience to understand a wide range of legacy code?
I forget where but recently I read a really good point - the radiation shielding someone on Mars might want to wear a lot (especially outside) is actually quite useful, because it adds weight that puts stress on your bones to the same degree Earth gravity would, thus reducing the problem of bone loss through everyday movement instead of just exercise periods.
As mentioned though, it seems like any mars settlement could make good use of the canyons there to help with shielding.
Most links on slashdot are underlined to me.
Poke around with a mouse sometime over many of the two lines of text above each post... many things are clickable, and are not underlined until you hover over them.
In IOS the indicator that something could be interacted with was meant to be similar to an underline, in that buttons took on the tint color for the app - so when you saw that color you would know you could press.
I personally prefer outlines either, but it's not Ive's fault if some designers did not follow those guidelines in UI designs with textual buttons.
If you want fair competition, you have to do it under the same rules as everyone else.
Uber is under the same rules - might makes right.
Both taxis and Uber have drivers working for a large organization with lots of money trying to compete. It's just that governments fight competition through fear and intimidation; companies like Uber fight competition through better service.
If you like fear and oppressive rule, by all means cheer the taxis on.
If the resources of the government can be brought to bear
Then they will fuck everything up, and burn hundreds of millions of dollars in the process that could have gone into doing something real.
The problem will go unsolved and everyone living around the problem will be a hundred times worse off than they were before.
Coding jobs can be easily outsourced to wherever the going rate for labor is cheapest.
SOME coding jobs can be, but many cannot - there is aways going to be a market for good coders that pays far above minimum wage, and is also vastly more enjoyable than most other jobs.
At the very least we should not steer people away from a career than can be very enjoyable, even if you are right about pay dropping (which I see no sign of for good coders)...
I'm of the opinion that we shouldn't push girls into programming exactly but we should present appealing options for them to learn (like all girl coding camps), just for the sake of more women making a more informed choice as to what to study in college.
He's just saying that making the choice to be home-maker should be just as valid for women as any other choice they could make. And he's right; it's not even close currently, as many look down on "homemaker" almost as much as they would "prostitute" or "stripper".
Why should choosing to be a home-maker be a choice any less honorable? And YES that also goes for Men, though if you think about it there's less of a societal stigma for men becoming a house maker than a woman!
Pretty sure the "brogrammer" is a creature wholly found in Silicon Valley (MAYBE NYC). As you say in practice I've never found a professional programmer that comes close to this.
If you think about it it only makes sense that fracking in America creates underground pressures which *must* force volcanos to erupt worldwide to alleviate the pressure. Frackers Drilled, Volcanoes Killed!
Look for my paper on this in Science next month. It contains MANY data points which took me ages to fabri---er, collect.
And why on earth would I want to do that? Facebook has nothing of value to offer me that I care about
Well apparently now it does, or you wouldn't be complaining.
ProTip: It's not like you need to give Facebook any real data to sign up, and you can access it in privacy mode to thwart tracking cookies.
Good point all. I was thinking of a slow cooker, I've not used a pressure cooker for a while and knew the lids required sealing, but I could have sworn in the past the pressure cooker my mom used when I was a kid had a clear lid.
I guess it never occurred to you that, no matter how "personal" the nature of the typical Facebook account, those same people have plenty going on that they don't want made public.
Ar you sure? Why are you sure? There is absolutely zero indication that a large majority of people really care.
You need to back up your assertion with something beyond your own supposition - I have illustrated that many, many people post very private stuff all the time. Where is the equally large scale indications of people trying to hide anything?
If your gasoline powered car smells, something is wrong with it.
Not if you just filled it up and some gas spilled... that's not impossible or uncommon/
