Comment Re:Don't worry, rasing the minimum wage will kill (Score 1) 394

I think you are mis-remembering. It was Joe Lieberman of CT who didn't want single-payer. Strange how you disparage all those Democrats who took courageous/suicidal votes against their constituents wishes, and ended up paying for it with their seats. Such that now there is only a single Democratic senator in all of the old South.

Comment Houses Are Money Pits (Score 1) 264

First of all, it's a bad idea to take out a 30 year mortgage. A 30 year mortgage is for someone who is buying too much house for their income. Imagine a 3rd person who buys a house for 3x their income, pays it off in 10-15 years, and then spends the remaining 15-20 years investing his housing money. (As it happens, I took out a 30 year mortgage, but refinanced it to a 10 year mortgage after 5 years). Second, you probably shouldn't expect to get twice the salary moving to SV.

Comment C++ Template Syntax (Score 3) 414

Maybe it's improved with the new versions of C++, but I coded in C++ for many years before transitioning to iOS development, and I never wrote my own templated classes, mainly because I would never be able to understand what any kind of semi-complicated template would do. So, I just used STL and Boost, and only with the templates I was comfortable with.

Comment Death of Thunderbolt? (Score 5, Insightful) 529

The one thing I found concerning about the new MacBook is that it does away with Thunderbolt. So will there ever be a 5K supporting Thunderbolt connector, or will this be handled by USB-C? And will the charger for the new MacBook have ports on it? Like a mini-display port, USB, or even Ethernet?

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
