He is the manager.
You had it easy. I once worked with a whole team of them.
On the other hand, Fortran is also a language of choice for cutting edge research where no legacy code exists and program development is done from scratch.
That also reminded me of reasoning that how brain functions (or what human's mind is) can be explained by quantum theory. No one fully knows (yet) how brain functions and how the mind manifests in the brain so it must be connected to the [equally hard to explain] quantum theory.
Two theories have open conjectures =/=> these theories are related.
Well, it is obvious that you are wrong here. US could not have kept Iraq (as in "annexed" Iraq). It did not have to either considering that it usually installs puppet governments around the world. Even though it fails again and again, it is not for the lack of trying. This tactic would surely fail in Ukraine too.
Russia, on the other hand, can and will keep Crimea.
Coincidence? I think not!
Just giving a hint to the investigators of both cases...
Or you could spend three times that on a Bentley and have a reupholstered Volkswagen Phaeton that delivers all the mileage of a 1980s pickup truck (and is also less reliable).
Over priced as the Model S is, that price is going no where but down, and range is going to go up.
So what does it mean for Tesla's resale value? Did Consumer Reports take car's resale value into account?
Some possible signs to determine if we're living in a simulation created by humans
Is there any sex interaction?
I personally enjoyed solving complicated problems by writing a suitable query to our database. I liked a lot to tune my queries' performance, it felt like creating art.
My joy is about to end as our managers decided to buy a new software package from a vendor who did not see a difference between a relational database and Excel spreadsheets. Their approach to queries? No text mode, drop down menus for everything, logic of them is limited to simple joins and filters. One of that vendor's representatives said that we would not need tables other than to do simple lookups. Granted, their primary audience has never been IT professionals, so I am glad that my contribution to this project will end when the data is migrated to the new "better" system. I pity its future users though.
But... the software cannot be bad if millions are spent on it, right?
Exactly. The reason no-one RTFA is because it's usually shit, and they probably read it two days ago anyway. The comments are the interesting bit. Slashdot isn't a news site, it's a debate site.
No, it is not "debate" nor "argument" site. It is a "contradiction" site.
