We all know how the 'bad' researchers game the system by hyperciting to up their impact numbers, maybe they know they can't pull that shit w/ open-access & have moved on to the private sector? IDK, just pure speculation from someone outside the field...
So we just ignore all scientific progress from like 1900 to the NIH mandate!? There's shit 3x older than I am that I have to have my friends steal for me just to read. Also, how many highschoolers actually understand calculus? Should we take away calculus? WILL IT HURT THEIR BRAINS TOO MUCH OH NOOO. I might not be with some expensive managed IT firm or anything, but I got where I am today by studying college-level course material when everyone in the grammar 'school' "system" thought I was outright retarded.
College is WAY WAY WAY too late to start handing kids academic journal access. Copyrighted science? COPYRIGHTED SCIENCE!? This isn't real science. Just wait 20 years for the 'real' scientists to take over & you can keep your cute little lab coat you spent $80K/8 years on just so you can skip internal medicine altogether & work for a pharmaceutical company to poop out a new chemical analog that gets you high by curing backpain or whatever but then the class-action lawsuit comes from the stump babys or the new boobies or whatever. Fuck you, currently-still-existing-"science"-community. Fuck. You.
I had to pick up a single DL DVD to burn an OS X install disk for my stepfather. The cheapest they had was $15. Just for shits & giggles, I asked if they had any arduinos. The Uno was like $35 bucks. THIRTY FIVE FUCKING BUCKS. Fuck you Radio Shack I hope you die an even more painful death than what you're experiencing right now.
I don't suppose you have any pointers for breaking into an entry-level managed IT position from a short lifetime as a freelancer (ages 10-23?). Anyways, guess what your book taught me: alias joke="fortune -o | tee $(tty) | sed -e 's/\n/\.\.\./g' | espeak -v en-us+f2 -s 150"
I mean, I'm half the age of any Merlin in existence but I grew up with a fascination with the history of electronic entertainment, mainly with a focus on videogames. It was like a dedicated-purpose oversized calculator with like 5 or so built-in games, like most of the time, except it was portablized by its terrible display. The concept itself was further improved upon later by a similar, yet interchangeable, system, then by Nintendo's Game & Watch series, &.....well you should know the rest by now. It exists as one of those critical points in history, fucking fascinating at the time though looking back today only has a tiny fraction of the appeal even by its successors like a year or two later.
We should probably figure out how to breed them in captivity before we go slitting a million throats every 2 years...
Mine grows with some bald spots & I want to obtain neckbeard status.
Once you do it all totes makes sense 4 reals yall.
In a lot of cases, a shiny new CS Degree actually hurts your chances of employment. Just learn the shit yourself, inside & out, design philosophy & all, contribute to a few FOSS projects &/or throw together some elaborate demo.
Unless they also found a way to modularize the APU, then genericized it ALL with open standards, it won't sell. Think about it: what good is the portable form-factor if it REQUIRES a dedicated dock? A dock here, a dock there, look at that you've ALREADY spent more than the laptop you were gonna get. They didn't even bother to have a laptop enclosure at launch of the kickstarter, because they used that time to pick library music for their ad. It's easier than it sounds when LCD's now have genericized interfaces & an arduino could take up all prototype sensors such as laptop close sensor, battery voltage control, etc.
Here's how it works. Call the BBB & all those guys, even tell Dell beforehand if you want to, just don't say anything stupid. Once all that happens, you can clearly say you've explored all avenues EXCEPT for a court appearance. THeir lawyers will either settle with you or bring you in but all you gotta do is point out a few technical concepts for the courtrom, maybe include a few Simple Wikipedia printouts, & you'll win hands down. It would help to have someone in IT act as a professional witness. If the laptop was under $500, take them to small claim court.
I just figured out how to turn on the Administrator account on Windows 7 & knock everyone else down to Standard! O:
They all scratch & fight from being scared of what they don't understand just before they accept death as the only option.
