Hey, in India that's like $20,000. Why don't they just outsource it?
I'm not kidding. When I work at home, I use a laydown desk (basically a cot/lawn chair with some strategically placed pillows), and my monitor is placed on the edge of a small table, and I drink a lot of liquids (mostly water), so I'm constantly forced to get up and reposition. It's not the most efficient way to work, but it seems to have the least impact on my body. My keyboard is in my lap, and I use a bamboo tablet on a stack of books. I wouldn't be able to do this at an office, but if I was asked to work extra hours I would be working those hours at home anyway.
All that being said, hacks like this aren't really solutions. We all need to exercise and minimize our computer use, there's just no real way around that. I think this is all just damage control.
"Or we would be, if it weren't for mobile pushing us back to client-side development.'"
Slashdot submission right before this one:
"Facebook iOS App Ditching HTML5 For ObjectiveC"
So it's neither long nor a death for fat clients after all?
Very good, Louis. Short, but pointless.
Am I that old? Since when could someone be a "sports nerd"? That's like saying you're an "MMA nerd" because you know the best way to kick someone in the face while they're trying to tackle you.
...and this same god Apple who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Jobs, the anointed one. Thus as Jobs spake of the iPhone 5, we shall be blessed by it's reception.
If this is what is keeping him from producing more of that crap, then I'm all for it.
Although he clearly means he just needs cheaper animators in to throw annoying effects on the screen. If he just made the shows the way he made A New Hope, he wouldn't have this problem (or in our case, solution).
Another reason that may not be a good idea is is some potential employers have marketing departments.

Those emails are already compromised by spammers, since I use them to communicate with family members, and they all distribute my address in those idiotic email forwards. They also get their laptops pwned once a month for good measure.
It's not mercury that he turns into, it's a mimetic polyalloy, and I still pee myself whenever I see that. Didn't you know that's what it was??! It's liquid metal, liquid magic!
