When I worked on a project with DARPA our project leader was always talking about the missle system he helped develop with DARPA. So DARPA is not completely innocent.
Yeah, I wondered the same things. They have to have some competent programmers there. Hell, most of us would do it for the right price.
I swear you could just go back to the old school spy tradecraft (dead drops, one time code pads, etc.) and keep your illegal organization out of the eyes of the law as long as you weren't stupid and kept all confidential communications offline. I'll bet not more than 5% of law enforcement agency personnel even know what they used to do.
It's how I run my terroist organization these days, and the terror business is good.
Yeah, it ain't dead, but verizon doesn't want to support it. Our copper line kept deteriorating in quality and after repeated complaints Verizon hired some guy (seriously, a guy with a ditch-witch and a roll of cable) to lay a new line down the road to my house. He did a shitty job and didn't mark the line, so it got dug up or broken several times by neighbors in under a year.
So we invested about $1200 into a cell booster, antenna and tower. Now we get good cell reception and told Verizon to stuff it.
Still can't get broadband other than via the cell phone. And that's expensive. Even the "unlimited" plans only come with a few Gb of 4G, then it drops to Edge.
Now he's being followed by three moon shadows.
How could anyone work in a place like Disney without being heavily drugged?
Perhaps with a diverse team there is less shared extracurricular interest to chat about, so meetings tend to be more focused on the subject at hand.
Just a theory, not even a really good one.
Hire another local programmer at 110% of the fired employee's salary to fix the cheap H1B programmer's code = 60% loss.
Can confirm. I have a business degree from a major university.
Two years after I got my degree I took a couple coding and networking courses at a community college.
Now I make a good living ($100K+) as a programmer/DBA from my two semesters of community college courses. I haven't done jack with my 4 year degree.
So anyone who wants to be a programmer can get a good boost from community college IF it's a GOOD community college. My profs were all old-time NASA programmers. They knew their stuff.
It also makes really cool fake snow.
Pork, is there anything it can't do?
Your posts insults my belief in free speech. I am warning you that you will be harmed if you continue to say things like this. You have been warned. Do not ever say anything like this again or harm wil come to you.
See how it works?
Because brilliant geniuses like yourself remember how awesome it was back before things like the EPA and the Clean Air and Water acts?
Junior, some of us were alive in the 1960's and 1970's. We remember how well the "invisible hand" of the market didn't do shit to stop rampant pollution. We remember not being able to swim or fish in the rivers, lakes and bays we can now swim and fish in comfortably.
Go swim in some toxic sewage this weekend. Then get used to that feeling if the EPA is defunded.
True fact: The first utterance of "Motherfucker!" came shortly after the invention of the hammer.
But we did have Bow Wow Wow.
Which had that hot welsh/burmese chick
