I wouldn't necessarily consider the choice of newer than 4.6 gcc arbitrary. Later versions with better C++11 support are very attractive, because C++11 simplifies and standardizes a lot of things that can make development significantly easier.
I hope, for your sake, that as you are working on your CS degree you are also doing some jobs to gain experience. It will be really hard for you to break in, even at entry level, without some previous experience to show.
Looking more and more like I'll go pure-PC for gaming in the near future.
Is it really any better in the PC only market? Is there a big market for used PC games? Honest question, as I've been out of the loop for a while.
Probably would have held out longer.
I know things I would do differently in my life. I'm not entirely confident in my ability to force some other person to do them, even if it was a clone of me. For reference: http://calvinandhobbes.wikia.com/wiki/Duplicator
While on the surface I agree, most new car models use electronics for both starters and transmissions. Without actual mechanical connections (from the cabin to the transmission for instance), this may or may not work in every case. Definitely worth a try though.
That may be a bit short-sighted.
This post went from protecting rights to advocating for thought crime. A+ would read again.
Yeah, shouldn't have tried to do sqrt(4925) in my head
But at 70"X5", that's only a 65" screen by traditional diagonal measurements.
That point is made in the conclusion of the actual paper. I know it's against the rules, but I read it.
Classic literature may not be your cup of tea, but do you agree with the overall point? At what age should school become just "training for specific job role"?
Don't you feel that things like classic literature enrich your life? Even if it doesn't directly translate to a career? Frankly, I'm glad that I had the ability to experience things that weren't on the job training. You have 12 (or 13) years of mandatory school in the U.S., and probably 34-40 years of working. I'm glad that the first 20 years of my life weren't completely dedicated to my career.
He states very bluntly that his 15 year old son "will not be a scientist". How does he know that?
Best AC post ever. I was going to ask exactly the same question. You have a Bachelor degree, why waste time on an Associates degree now?
