I'll be honest, if you were the hiring manager at my company, you would be the first one out the door. Although experience is awesome, new people always come in ready to work, and they always present fresh ideas. When I hire, I don't really consider their length of employment as much as I do their skills. And, to be totally honest, I'd prefer to hire someone with 1 or 2 years of experience in my industry as compared to someone that had 25 years. The person with 1 or 2 years is usually more flexible and ready to learn, whereas the person with 25 years will always expect things to operate like their last job. I would be curious as to why someone with 25 years hasn't taken the initiative to learn something new. I realize that sometimes people only have one skill, or they just get comfortable with doing the same thing everyday. I've always had better luck with people who had 1-3 years in various jobs, even non-related jobs, because they have learned a lot of different skills and a lot of different ways of getting things done, and hopefully they'll bring some better ways of doing things to my company. If you are not considering people simply based on their length of employment, you're probably hurting your company more than helping it, and may explain why you have a crapload positions to fill.
because Half Life 2 only allows me to play as a white guy. I should be allowed to play as Gina Freeman, Giovanni Fabianno, Guadalupe Fernandez, or Guela Feigenbaum.

Nobody said it was better. It " doesn’t compete directly with the Raspberry Pi – the Pi is more an educational tool and already has a robust ecosystem – it is a way for DIYers to mess around in x86 architected systems as well as save a bit of cash". Pi = 700 MHz ARM Minnowboard = 1.9 GHz x86-64 It's a really small x86 system for someone who needs a really small x86-64 system
Basically another HP Touchpad
Is Windows RT going to 'upgrade' itself to Windows Phone? Or are people who bought RT devices just stuck with the OS they have? Just curious since they are limited on apps. I would guess that people who bought one of these devices did it because it was cheap and simple. They probably won't have the know-how to run Windows 8 apps, or to install Linux. It sounds like it might turn into something like the Mac PPC to Intel conversion where people are stuck with a decent machine that can only run old apps.
...just change your number. I know you said you're looking for alternatives, but, if you have your phone unplugged already, then you're not able to receive calls. Unless you need to call out and have your number recognized, it might just be easier to change it. I'm not sure what sort of device will be able to blacklist random numbers without missing some calls that you actually want to receive.
Some psychopaths crave attention. Take serial killers, for example. Some leave tips for the police, hoping to get caught. They like the high-profile attention they receive during their killing streak and the even higher attention after they're caught. Maybe he's just an attention whore.
Sounds like someone needs to make a few calls and see if they have Battletoads in stock
Folklore.com is an obviously biased site. Based on that article, MacOS and Windows are entirely different. Windows has no finder, no auto-eject floppies, a 2 button mouse, a taskbar. MS didn't employ ex-Apple people to build Windows, but Apple employed ex-Xerox people to build their OS. I'm not trying to start a pissing contest here, I'm just saying pick a more neutral site to draw your conclusions from.
Require them to type in a passphrase to dismiss the error. Similar to the "red 5" / "blue square" - each error has a specific word or phrase that must be typed in. They should remember if they just got the "Mickey Mouse" error, or the "OMG that's not good!" .

This might be useful for mail carriers, meter maids, farm vehicles, etc. Might also be useful for someone exploring a remote area where a gas pump might not be readily available
Lubuntu is very easy to figure out if you're a Windows user, same layout, etc. Plus you get all the benefits of Ubuntu. Super-fast boot as well, even on old hardware. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu
You could use a digital pen like Logitech io or LiveScribe that allows you to write on paper, then plug the pen into the netbook/notebook and save a digital copy.
