Comment Maybe they're Computer Engineers instead? (Score 1) 401

In the 90's, more Universities started Computer Engineering majors, which combined the digital half of a standard EE degree with the less theoretical half of a standard CS degree. (I know -- I was a year or two too early for CE, so I got an EE instead.) I would bet that any EE job that has a significant embedded software component is called something else now.

Comment New York City is not its own state (yet) (Score 4, Informative) 322

Please keep in mind that New York City is not it's own state. And the rest of the state is pretty steamed about the recent gun legislation that the Governor jammed through the state legislature. Some upstate sheriffs have even gone so far as to say they will not enforce that legislation, which is a pretty big step for law enforcement to come out and state in public. Gun rights are a twitchy subject here right now, I find it hard to think of any upstate politician who would support any restriction on 3d printing right now.

Unbeknownst to us, the probes are actually going to hit the secret underground Mayan moon base (where they went after the aliens gave them the technology to leave behind the famine on Earth that would have wiped them out), and they are going to attack on 12/21. You heard it here first!
