Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "So I'm recently unemployed and looking for a programming job. I have an up coming Skype interview with a company with which I'd love to work.

Any advice on how to present yourself in a Skype interview? If interviewing in person, I'd most definitely be in a suit, but what is good etiquette in this situation?"

+ - ISO C++ Committee Approves C++0x Final Draft ->

Submitted by Randyll
Randyll (1914386) writes "On the 25th, in Madrid, Spain, the ISO C++ committee approved a Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) for the C++ programming language. This means that the proposed changes to the new standard so far known as C++0x are now final. The finalization of the standard itself, i.e. updating the working draft and transmitting the final draft to ITTF, is due to be completed during the summer, after which the standard is going to be published, to be known as C++ 2011. With the previous ISO C++ standard dating back to 2003 and C++0x having been for over eight years in development, the implementation of the standard is already well underway in the GCC and Visual C++ compilers. Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of C++, maintains a handy FAQ of the new standard."

+ - Most Violent Video Games Of All Time

Submitted by adeelarshad82
adeelarshad82 (1482093) writes "Switzerland and Australia already feel that violent video games are an issue and in June U.S Supreme Court will also take matters in its own hands. A revisit to some of the most violent video games made over the last couple of decades shows exactly why this is such a huge concern. Moreover games like Mortal Kombat and Modern Warfare 2 are exactly why studies like violent video games aren't harmful to most kids taken seriously."

Kernel 2.6.31 To Speed Up Linux Desktop 360

Posted by Soulskill
from the zoom-zoom dept.
Dan Jones writes "As the Linux community looks forward to another kernel release, the kernel hackers have been working on improving the memory management so that the X desktop responsiveness is doubled under high memory pressure. The result is an improved desktop experience. Benchmarks on memory-tight desktops show clock time and major faults reduced by 50 per cent, and pswpin numbers (memory reads from disk) are reduced to about one-third. Another improvement coming with 2.6.31 is kernel mode-setting support for ATI Radeon graphics cards, enabling faster user switching and a more seamless startup experience. Peripheral developments that will also improve the Linux desktop experience include support for the new USB 3.0 specification and a new Firewire stack. Even minor Linux releases have heaps of new features these days!"

FairPort Accused of Faking Network Readiness Test 144

Posted by kdawson
from the sufficiently-rigged-demo-is-indistinguishable-from-magic dept.
wytcld writes "When Verizon spun off its Northern New England lines to FairPoint, FairPoint leased Verizon's computer network to manage them. This was costly, so FairPoint readied its own network. To prove its own network was ready for the switchover a demonstration was prepared for an outside auditor, Liberty. Now a whistleblower claims: '...when Liberty was watching what they thought was "flow thru" within a system and from one system to another, they were really only seeing a small program that was created to assimilate what they wanted the systems to do. They were not actually in the systems at the time nor were they in the test systems. They were in a newly created small program that used screen shots from the real system to deceive the audience into believing that they were watching a real demonstration.' How easy is it to find auditors who can be fooled by such a simple trick? Whether or not the test was faked, the network has proved so unready that FairPoint is close to bankruptcy, and may have its licenses to operate revoked in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont."
