Not that I'm opposed to any of those necessarily, but #3 is unworkable. Who calls for the No Confidence vote?
cannabis is remarkably easy to grow. It's a weed, probably literally.
Perhaps if you all show enough deference, I'll take you with me to the top.
Shouldn't that result in the patches being released for anyone to use?
AHAHAHAHA, sorry. Had to make the joke.
...but this is SyFy, it'll end up being some kind of wrestling show.
Granted, probably with a bad paranormal twist.
How do you suppose they advertise this? "Need subjects for really cool study! $10s and all the ice cubes you can eat! Must have own gun/knife."
You may want to take a seat, this may be a bit of a shock to you; this is a website about technology. Perhaps surprisingly, the desktop many of us have to support counts as "technology". Therefore, the company behind the OS on these desktops gets attention. More so when they make as many boneheaded moves as MS has over the past several years.
For a while there, MS was doing "OK". Windows 7 was decent ( even though they moved shit around on me and broke some functionality that was useful to admins in xp...but I digress ), security was 1000% better than it used to be. They were really picking up steam, especially after vista.
I was worried about BTC crashing, but thankfully they're looking to outlaw it.
I have always felt that "Ask Slashdot" is the haven for the "simplified answers".
I'm not going to try to break down the variety of scenarios where he should or shouldn't make the leap. Rather, my focus is on the "big picture"; if he has a family, it's not about his selfish needs anymore. If he doesn't, he can be as selfish as he wants.
If you have a family to support, stay put. You have a good, stable job. Your "boredom" is immaterial to providing for your family. In short, get over yourself. You are working for more than just yourself now.
If you don't have a family to support: Take it. Now's the time to make your mistakes. The worst thing that happens is that the company goes bust, you have some peanut butter and ramen days as you find another job. If it's just you, then it's no big deal, right?
Don't misunderstand me; I'm not saying that rote memorization is worthless. As you rightly pointed out, repeated exposure leads to memorization. A good programmer has strengths in many different areas.
My overall point being that an IDE won't lead to degraded quality of programmer. You aren't atrophying skills by using an IDE, you are simply making your life easier ( which is critical when we're talking about more than personal projects ).
Look, it's nice when you are well versed enough in a language to not have to lookup method/function names, nor their arguments. But let's face it, it's hardly the mark of an amazing programmer to have a photographic memory.
Programmers solve problems. Being able to understand the problem well enough to develop a solution for it is far more important a skill. Writing well documented code using a uniform style further boosts the quality of the output by helping make it maintainable.
An IDE is, at worst, neutral in this regard, if not beneficial for assisting in the last point.
Not that I don't believe it, necessarily. Merely that it can't be trusted. At all.
At least this one admits to working for MS.
I swear, I have seen more shills flood the internet advocating Windows8 than for any other product in history.
