Regardless of how specialized the profession is, notes, acronyms, and diagrams should make sense to someone with the same training.

I don't like documenting the specifics of the GRE tunnel or the TCP MSS settings that I set up on our network the other day, but it is documented so that other network engineers would understand what was done, even if the helpdesk personnel don't.

+ - New Bill Gives US Workers First Dibs on H-1B Jobs

Submitted by

linumax writes "One of the longest-running defenses of the hotly debated H-1B temporary worker visa program is that there are simply not enough U.S. workers to fill out many corporations' programming, engineering and back-office positions, leaving them no choice but to hire workers from overseas. eWeek reports that a new Senate bill takes this argument to task, demanding that employers make a "good faith" effort to hire a U.S. worker before bringing in a H-1B worker. It would require that employers prove not only that they tried and failed to hire a U.S. worker, but that hiring a foreigner would pose no cost advantage."

The rest of us want to know if we're earning what we deserve, or at least that we're making what others who do similar jobs make. That's why sites that provide pay-scale information and salary calculators are becoming all the more popular. The New York Times has a roundup on them this weekend, and that account is the paper's "most e-mailed" item.

The link has screen grabs showing Zune Pass songs being loaded onto a Creative Zen. We're monitoring to see what happens over time — i.e. if the songs remain available as long as the Zune Pass is maintained.
