I use mine as an ashtray. What do you guys do with yours?
My employer pretty-well insisted that I get a certification. They went so far as to pay for the training and the first exam attempt.
To that end, I'm working on GCUX through SANS. So far, so good. It's pretty interesting.
From what I'm reading about how to prepare for the exam itself, it would be to my benefit to prepare a thorough index- something in the area of 30-50 pages long. O_O
Does anyone have any experience with that sort of thing? How does one know what should be in the index and what should not?
...the more they stay the same. I think.
A little over a year ago, I wrote about how I stopped playing WoW and took up ST:TOR. Now, I don't even play that.
Things have been a bit hectic at my house- My wife's computer died (constant, unpredictable reboots and a corrupted hard drive), so she's taken to playing WoW on my system. She raids often, now that she's found a guild that does that sort of thing in the morning. My sleeping period has me getting up late morning. By then, I have an errand or two to do before I start getting ready for work. Rinse, repeat.
I need a vacation.
I forgot it was silly season. Mind you, it is the off-year one, the Winter Olympics to Superbowl Tuesday's buffet of awesomeness, so one really cares, including me.
Still, though, props to Brat for achieving trivia question notoriety. It's almost a shame his votes (should he actually make it to Congress) will be in line with his party waaaaaaaaaaay more often than not.
And congrats to the Democrats as well. Always nice when the other team commits an unforced error.
Thinking about jumping ship from my cheap but reliable 3GS into the android pool. I'm assuming it's all about the hardware, right? Apart from the Samsung offerings, which everybody raves about (yet I'm not a huge fan of the form factor), has anyone got any recommendations?
over 120 reviews i remeber using computers slower than this one but wow it sucks
Link this story with the militarization of Federal Agencies (such as the Post Office, the DHS Hollowpoint ammo buy, and others, and you can see HOW he's doing this.
If you aren't concerned about this... you aren't paying attention. And if you're not paying attention, when the shit hits the fan, you'll deserve what you get.
Congrats to Axl Rose.

And for the record, Brad Ausmus is a far superior manager to Jim Leyland.
but it is lacking. it makes a few points, but they are kinda empty on what people can do about or against surveillance. encryption gets 3 seconds worth of coverage. they don't even mention the fact that closed source software makes detection of spying almost impossible. no mention of how true open source gives the freedom to be free of government and corporate surveillance, as long as you don't release information on your own. i realize google uses open source software, but they neglect the facts that open source isn't by itself enough to prevent abuse because humans are humans and that is the flaw in google's model. ah well, it has a little republican slant, barely mentioning how republicans were involved in it while painting dems as having the most use of surveillance, which is a fluke because google yahoo and facebook have been doing this stuff for years now regardless of which party is in office. it just that 'freemium' games and popularity of social media has skyrocketed in the past 6 years. although i know a lot of people think we have a 0 party system that it's just the rich who gets their wheels greased...
And for my buddy smitty -- it's just another example if liberals and their perpetual pre-pubescence.
"Global Warming, Fact or Myth"
"Myth" -- Correct answer, by the way
And note how the thin-skinned liberal asshole (but I repeat myself) then asks him what he thinks of the Easter Bunny... Callahan points out the asshole nature of the liberal reporter and ends up getting thrown out of the meeting.
My response would have been that there's more credible evidence to support the existence of the Easter Bunny than there is for Anthropogenic Global Warming.
Also can be used for aching symptoms from trying to defend the Imperial Preznit from the following scandals:
Fast and Furious
Or even from overplaying the race card. Buy it by the crate!
i don't think this is news, but second generation color eink readers are now $500 and for sale online. first gen i have seen as cheap as $120 but second gen is so much better. now if only the screen came down in price. http://www.ectaco.com/jetBook_Color/?refid=41196&gclid=CK7KueeI_70CFclDMgodEwYAiA
http://www.engadget.com/2013/09/05/the-once-bright-future-of-color-e-paper/ paints a dark picture... i don't know what the refresh rate is on the triton2 but it must not be good enough for high frame rate video. i have movie watching devices though, color eink just needs to work with digital delivered comic books/manga. and ebooks with 'color' pictures. it doesn't need to be a one device does everything it just needs a group of people willing to pay for eink in color and know what that means too slow for video. eink displays don't shatter, and kids get too much video anyways, so they should be encouraging kids to use a device that has a battery that has as much energy as a AA battery, but needs charging only periodically...
Speech: Mark Levin at the NRA
Wow, talk about a trollbait article.
The author attempts to make a case for managed code because of the "saving graces" of the runtime, but what, pray tell, was the runtime written in?
If a bug similar to Heartbleed was found in
To be 100% clear Heartbleed happened not because a programmer screwed up, but because the language was too primitive to know better.
Wow, that's a money quote for trolling.
This statement is ludicrous. It was because a developer screwed up. When a person gets shot, do we blame the gun or the shooter? Exactly, we blame the shooter. The fault never lies with the tool, it lies with the user of the tool. If you don't know how to use the tool correctly, don't fucking use the tool.
For example: Let's say there's an idiot -- there's enough around here to pick from -- who improperly uses a table saw and slices off a finger. Do we blame the table saw or the sloppy idiot?
Blaming C/C++ for Heartbleed is just as stupid.
Quite frankly, I'm surprised i-programmer posted such a trolling, flamebait rant and called it an article. I'd expect that sort of lame-ass shit from Slashdot...
