Had I still been living in my mom's basement I never would have believed that their are IE fan-boys but now I work with some. Boy are these some real assholes--also known as idiots and luddites.
Excel is anything but boring. I can't count how many people I've heard exclaim that they LOVE Excel.
They apply quantitative algorithms developed against enormous amounts of data that most people do not have access to. This is not a "market" activity.
Years ago I had a clear political opinion. I was a civil-rights activist. I appreciated freedom and anything limiting freedom was a problem to me. Freedom of speech was one of the most important rights for me. I thought that democracy has to be able to survive radical or insulting opinions. In a democracy any opinion should have a right even if it’s against democracy. I had been a member of the lawsuit against data preservation in Germany. I supported the German Pirate Party during the last election campaign because of a new censorship law. That I became a KDE developer is clearly linked to the fact that it is a free software community.
But over the last years my opinion changed. Nowadays I think that not every opinion needs to be tolerated. I find it completely acceptable to censor certain comments and encourage others to censor, too. What was able to change my opinion in such a radical way? After all I still consider civil rights as extremely important. The answer is simple: Fanboys and trolls.

I'm truly uncomfortable with how taxes are used to manipulate and manage society and how people are so wuick to employ them for this purpose without acknowledging it.
I like that. Maybe shares will then be a representation of the value instead of penny fragments. Their investment value is minuscule until you can purchase a certain amount anyway. Imagine, real investment instead of speculation. I think you are on to something.
You're obviously a smart guy--as evidenced by your low id number--but I always cringe when sweeping generalizations are made about what will happen given changes to tax code and when people say "Way too much of our economy is tied into the stock market."
Economies adapt, as they are really just aspects of human desires and the activity people engage to fill those desires based on their tradeoffs or costs. Economies do not rely on any particular market.
This is not a slashvertisement. I had one decent contact in the first month but I have now realized this was just luck. I tried CraigsList and had a lot better leads but now Dice has picked back up and I'm getting run to death. Dice is kind-of THE site for IT jobs though. I would love another suggestion for a tech job site if anyone knows of one. Monster is blah compared to Dice, and frankly I don't have the energy to maintain another stream of connections.
It was more like lazy law making. It was easier to wave off the cost onto the person running into the cave than to structure the law as such that it funded any type of loss or archaeological expedition.
As a side note, I ran a job posting on CraigsList to get resumes and cover letters from other people looking for similar jobs and all I have gotten is almost a complete failure of applicants to submit cover letters--and the ones who did had a string of developer jobs where they lasted only a year or less. Is this the norm?"
According to former IRS agents there was never a good time to work there.
I hate you.
For crying out loud, women are not blow up dolls to be paraded around like show animals.
The women begin paraded around like animals feel otherwise. We have a few faults of nature working here, male animal reproductive drive and economics. Men can't help it (so they are in fact being exploited as well) and the women find the price offered by the (probably female) marketing director equitable (economics).
Stupid terrorists....all they had to do was invest in MacDonalds and Little Debbie.
The same can be said of the Lusitania and Pearl Harbor
