Before 9/11, CIA have admitted their most imporant task was to spy for american companies. I bet today it is the same. Poor Germans.
They only want "this" person for the top positions (board, ceo, etc), and they they give such a huge offer that there is no need to negotiate. Or if there is, they just make a new, bigger one.
Honestly, recruiting talent is not difficult, finding talent is. Sticking to "this person" is stupid, nobody is irreplaceable, at least not after "being hit by a bus".
Even worse than lawyers (effectively) banning film documentaries.
In one interview I said straight (about pair programming), "if someone else touches my keyboard, I go home". Didn't get the job - thank god.
E. Do not want to train people. Rather fire old people and hire new with the special knowledge. Some even expect you to *buy* development environment and demonstrate your knowhow.
I wonder what would have happened had they not had Google Translate. A boy?
Generics killed Java.
Wow, what a punishment for a CEO, being fired with a million dollar golden parachute.
5: Use AllowUsers. Quite often there are only one or two users who need ssh access (from external IP's), so enable only those and limit the rest to local net (or disable altogether).
6: Use non-standard port. Won't help against NSA, but helps against script kiddies (who are not targeting you).
It seems that they have not done even the most basic preventions, like traffic shaping. The ATM's should certainly have higher priority than internet traffic (and dedicated guaranteed throughput channel), but alas, they failed too. Same with shops, other banks, etc.
Several processes in multicore is parallel.
And it needs to be parallel. For example my current desktop is A8-5500, got it for ~$100. Four times more single thread performance - how much would that cost?
Why not? Currently Firefox has problems rendering (loading) two pages simultaneously, although it should be able to handle tens, using several cores.
Same with Evince (which is crap anyway), it cannot do anything in parallel, should be able to use tens of cores.
And so on.
It will turn out to be as wrong as "640k".
What I think they are pushing is Xamarin.
That way they would get far more developers for Windows Phone. The best part for Microsoft is that the applications made in Xamarin works best on Windows Phone. When the sore losers who picked Xamarin have 1M lines of code they no longer can back out, but Microsoft won't care (to fix the "corner cases"), the next hit game is first and best in Windows Phone.
Oh *uck even Gnome One is better looking! BTW, does it have systemd?
Well, at least it did not have blinking background. Or have my brains fused, did it?
My new-year-resolution will be "640-is-good-for-everybody, if it is white on black"
