And as the knowledge economy shifts to the point where non-local geeks are just as good as local, the value of that house will go back down to something sensible. You are in a bubble. It's not out of the question that it will continue for the rest of your life, but I'd suggest a wee bit of diversification, just to be sure.
It's recovered for us, for the moment, but it's still pretty brittle. I wouldn't get too attached to the "recovery" if I were you.
You need more than a million to retire comfortably. If you start banging 20% into your 401k every year, you'll reach a million fairly quickly on a developer's salary. So I would restate that as you need to earn a million more than your run rate, because retirement isn't entirely optional. Of course, you may get hit by a truck and never get there, but that seems like a lousy outcome to plan for.
It doesn't matter who revokes the keys. Right now only Firefox and Chrome ever check for revoked certs, and Chrome at least has this disabled by default. If you are running iOS or Android, your browser doesn't check the CRL before trusting the cert. So it's great if web sites revoke certs, but it doesn't actually change anything on the end user side, for the most part. I'm not saying anything about Windows platforms because I don't have access to any; it's possible that they do support CRLs. You can check whether your browser supports CRLs by going to this test URL. If you don't get a warning from your browser, your browser isn't checking CRLs.
A properly locked-down Chromebook doesn't let you do stuff like that. You have to enable developer mode. Presumably the point of using chromebooks is that they're easier to maintain, and that won't be the case if they aren't locked down.
How does that contradict what the previous poster said? Segregation is a bad idea. Your anecdote supports that conclusion.
I am not thrilled that this is considered a good idea. In principle I suppose you _can_ learn to program on a Chromebook, but only in a very limited way. If this is the wave of the future in education, some thought needs to go into how to design a programming curriculum that can work with these devices.
No offense, but us bleeding hearts also blither on quite a bit about income inequality. I think we blither on about that a lot more than we do about gun control, actually.
No, the bombing came after they'd annexed Tibet, as part of the Destruction of Four Olds campaign. Religion as a whole was explicitly targeted for elimination. The rhetoric was explicit in targeting religion as the reason for destroying the monasteries, killing monks and nuns and sending other monks and nuns to concentration camps. Soldiers forced monks and nuns to lie with each other at gunpoint so as to break their vows. Twist and spin all you like: this was very much done in the name of atheism.
Unlikely. Easier to use video cameras to do the overlay. Less worry about matching light levels. It would certainly be cool if we could get a version of this that was more like a pair of Oakley shades than a giant set of opaque goggles, but I'm skeptical that such a thing will be useful.
I actually ordered a DK2 after the facebook announcement on the theory that it will be less likely to be broken by facebook than later models. It remains to be seen of course, but July is a pretty early timeframe for Facebook to have completely destroyed the company.
Excuse me, but suppression of religion in favor of atheism is _exactly_ why it was done. Otherwise they wouldn't have bombed the monasteries—they would have just taken over the country.
What the hell does this have to do with high performance 3D graphics cards? And which would you rather eat: oil, or food?
I do agree, but a communist personality cult isn't communism. It's a personality cult that uses communism as an excuse for its existence. North Korea is nominally, but not actually, communist.
Yes, they were done in the name of atheism. Marx said religion was the opiate of the masses. A lot of religious people have been killed or tortured in service of that claim. Hard to see how that's not atheism.
