Actually it is, and for exactly this. I made a decision that I wasn't going to buy an SSD until I could get a good one that was > 200GB at $0.5/gig just like this example. This was the price I was comfortable paying. I ended up getting a Samsung 840 EVO 250GB for exactly $125 (canadian) at staples.
I guess it depends on the company. I work for a small company with just 2 developers. We have A LOT of processes automated. If we didn't we would only be doing 1/4 the amount of work we currently do. Yes you know what sometimes automation breaks but we fix it. Also any automation that is done that only saves 10 minutes per day the person that was originally in charge of that work still is required to know how to do it manually so that if it eventually breaks it won't effect them other than opening a ticket and doing the process manually.
We get p(raises) for our automation and how much we can churn out.
Depends what the edge cases are.
Whats better, 9 minor accidents or only 1 serious accident?
Probably the 9 minor ones.
In my area they really been big on putting in roundabouts in the last 10 years or so at a bunch of intersections. Minor accidents have gone way up but major accidents have gone way way down, so overall it is a win.
omg this. I remember back in late 90s being called up at minimum, once a week by each of them major telcoms asking if I want to switch (or with the one I was on, trying to upsell). I used to ask them, so if you are harassing me before I am even your customer, what are you going to do when I am actually your customer? I knew multiple people who disconnected all of their phone lines and switched to VOIP/Cell phones just to get away from the constant harassment. Seemed to go on for a year or so then abrubtly stopped, must have been some law that passed or they got fined out of their rear end.
idk, I think farmers are more important than teachers, and generally they even paid less
no more like All your data are belong to US.
I am eventually going to keel over and die anyways.
Well OpenSSL provided the source code for others to scrutinize and look at how long that took
yup same here, while my yearly salary isn't great I work 35 hour weeks, 4 weeks vacation, 10 sick days, multiple breaks per day, rarely ever any OT (and while we are salaried and don't get OT pay we instead get time in time and a half off). Hour-for-hour I probably make more than a lot of managers as well. Would I like to make double what I am making? Sure, but I would NOT be willing to put in double the work.
Ah, didn't realize teksavvy is canada wide now. While I originally found their customer service was excellent, I left because it was piss poor. They were growing too big too fast, and had wait times on the phone that were 30min+, and were constantly overselling neighborhoods. I am sure it is better now as they figured out the logistics. I have personally referred 8 people to teksavvy, and now have referred them to Start and they been happy each time with the change.
Start.ca I find amazing, everytime I have called them a human picked up the phone within 2 rings, zero hold times.. I am sure as they get bigger they will end up like teksavvy though with the crazy wait times, but for now it is like how teksavvy used to be when they were small.
Yeah I haven't used a mouse pad in over 10 years.... Just use it directly on the desk.
Where you located? If in Ontario, check out teksavvy or start.ca. Also check out your provider, a lot of them recently have been offering unlimited for an extra $10-30 a month depending if you have stuff bundled with them or not.
And how exactly is this cheaper? This is already regular price for all other manufacturers.. But the article specifically states "Samsung to lower manufacturer costs with more usable die per wafer". I guess if it actually comes with a 10 year warranty that is worth a bit.
So a hitman is fine to kill people since it is their job???
What's funny is I still haven't got emails from Futureshop/Bestbuy yet. Considering the amount they spam I am not sure what they are going to do. If I even get one email from them on or after July 1, I will be reporting them.
