"There are only two kinds of languages: the ones people complain about and the ones nobody uses"
The universities that I went to had campus police, not just rent-a-cops. Real cops with real badges & real guns.
If you're just looking at resumes it's easy to say "oh, yes, let's give this woman a chance" when you know you'd never actually give her the job. Follow it up with some bullshit excuse about 'culture fit' or personality that can't really be quantified or held against you.
C++ is still very much a living, actively developed language. There's a lot of people using it for modern projects. It's well supported under pretty much all modern operating systems & you have excellent tools available under Linux.
There's not a lot of reason to pick up Objective C unless you plan on targeting Apple. It's pretty much a dead language everywhere else, outside of a few niche projects.
The NRA has over twice the budget of the ACLU and has Second Amendment issues covered.
Complaining about their lack of activity on gun rights is just a cheap way to discredit the organization because you have other issues with them.
This is exactly the sort of crap everyone was predicting when IBM sold their PC line to Lenovo.
The only thing that surprises me is that it took so long.
"Fitbit only usable device, Nike Fuelband total shit".

Reddit is great for finding people with the same interests and viewpoints as you. It's a shitty place to find critical discussion or unorthodox ideas. Between the insular nature of specialized subreddits & the conformity-promoting nature of the voting system, you're going to find incredibly one-sided information. It might be good information, but there's seldom room for other viewpoints.
Just as an example, there's communities of opiate addicts, anorexics & self-mutilators that support & promote those lifestyles.
I'm saying this as a long-time active Reddit user.
It's easy for Microsoft - nobody's actually buying their phones.
this language is also based on the C language
No, it's based on BASIC. That's why they call it VisualBasic. It's a completely different family of programming languages.
He loses credibility there & then just keeps piling on bullshit afterwards.
Logic is an Apple product as well.
People stuck on "cheap hosting solutions" don't pay good money to developers to develop software for them. Cheap hosting solutions don't even come close to scaling to anything beyond a blog for a local business.
Unless you've decided to work on a bottom of the barrel open source CMS/Forum system (a market that's pretty much saturated already), the argument that "PHP is the only thing we can run" is just not relevant. Maybe it carried some weight ten years ago but it's a non-issue these days.
It's FLAC so 128GB is really only enough space to hold The Wall & Frampton Comes Alive.
The beauty is that you can still buy and play all the old stuff. There are both official reprints of the old 1st & 2nd edition games as well as free/low cost clones of everything pre-3rd edition (the Original game as well as the early "Basic" box set games). A great many of the adventure modules are available in both PDFs and hardbound reissues of the more iconic ones.
As for the price of the books, $20 in 1980, adjusted for inflation is $57. It's still hard to swallow when you can buy a printed copy of Basic Fantasy for under $5.
Paul Graham gets it perfectly. He's no longer a "hacker", he's a venture capitalist that lives to churn through startups & make money by exploiting workers.
He doesn't care about keeping wages up, he wants cheap labor to drive his costs down.
