"had one of the experimental Windows XP tablet PCs" Not experimental. They were all pen input devices and worked very well. Just ask Fujitsu and a bunch of others.
High school senior in 1979: 1) Get assignment on Monday 2) Write code on paper. 3) Wait for punch machine to get freed up 4) Type in code 5) Give teacher punch cards on Monday 6) Teacher takes a box full of cards on Friday 7) Teacher picks up cards Sunday night 8) Get paper results and cards at Monday class. 9) Rinse and repeat until it compiles. I wrote TWO great programs that semester
You hire someone and hand over a COPY of the keys. Rule #1 is that you ALWAYS know admin passwords and whatnot. That's not only for your comfort, it's part of due dilligence as your new guy might be hit by a bus on the way home after his first day. Then you step out of the way and do the important job of running the company. If you're not comfortable with this, reexamine your career path. It's time to let it go.
I'm not sure why they would need to do that as a routine task. It's fairly broad and consumes resources. It'd be pretty funny if you mentioned it to their IT Director and he replied with "huh?"
I have never heard of Whole Foods. If people want to eat some organic stuff, why would I care?
In the middle of the ocean, any kind of 'cops' would be days away.
The Association for Computing Machinery wants everyone to code? I wonder what The Association for Fixing Your Car, Association for Small Repairs Around The Home, The Association for Recognizing and Stopping Child Abuse, The Association for Common Courtesy and The Association for Reasonable Adult Relationships would think. All worthy, imo.
...say the Grand Canyon was formed last Tuesday, or something like that. Carved out by the Arc, that sat lower in the water because of all the dinosaurs on board. You betcha.
"What are their odds of success?" We're talking about Accenture, so it's an easy question to answer: Zero. Worst company I ever worked for by far. In six months, people are going to miss CGI.
Work is expected to get done over a weekend so I take it home.
Because that's where it looks like the terrorists would hide. Well, maybe Tanaris too.
It is what it is. Not the best Marvel movie but I didn't mind the admission price. One thing though....why is it the heroes always run into the one, only and correct cave on an entire planet? Thor and Jane avoid a storm and run into the one place with a time/space wormhole. Almost as bad as Kirk getting chased into the only cave on a ice planet that had Spock sitting in it. ( First ST/reboot movie ).
No one blinked an eye when Google paid what it did for Motorola. Now, one judge has brought out the critics and the second guessing. Unless you have a time machine, or can talk to every judge with a 'what-if', you can only do your due diligence. It's time to move on and look to the next problem, not rehash the past.
Google, Bing, Yahoo et.al. should just stop indexing German news sites. Let's see what happens to news revenue when that happens.
