Stay right where you are: max out your pension fund contributions, enjoy the perks your current employer provides, and take some contract work on the side to satisfy your need for challenge. Figure out how much money you need to retire comfortably and work toward accumulating that money as fast as you can. Then retire. You'll be much happier. Trust me, not having to respond to an alarm clock 5 or more days a week is very nice.
Doesn't matter to me whether my ISP is feeding me data at 50 mbs or 100 gbs. 50mbs works just fine and handles my every need. Unless I am trying to watch 4 movies at once or somesuch as that. I suppose the average mormon family, with 2 adults and 6 or more kids, might need faster speeds, but I just don't believe the average household needs 100 gbs.

Edward Abbey - Desert Solitaire Ken Follett - The Pillars of the Earth Ayn Rand - Atlas Shrugged (I know, the (il)liberals here have no concept of what the woman is trying to get across, which does not surprise me, but it truly describes the situation into which we are ever more rapidly descending).
How advanced is that!!
VMS forever. Far more secure, far easier to use, far more features, and has an excellent built-in file system.
As we know, there is no privacy anymore. Hence, prosecutors are going to be facing more and more of this sort of thing. You cannot hide. Ask that DA in Texas. Once prosecutors become aware of this, they might become smart enough to NOT mount silly prosecutions like this - but I doubt it. If you as a prosecutor think your own bureaucracy can protect you, think again. I'm predicting an increase in violence against prosecutors and law enforcement in general.
They're cheap. I've managed to live without a "smart" phone for a very long time. Yes, they have some nice features, but nothing I cannot live without. And yes, your employer is perfectly justified in banning personal electronics on company property or a company functions. He does, after all, pay your salary.
1. Do not carry any kind of ID on you. None. And remember, personal cell phones, esp. smart phones, are a form of ID. If you absolutely MUST have a phone with you, make sure it's not registered to you. 2. Do not talk to the cops. Not one word. 3. And, instead of "occupying wall street", you might try "occupying a job". Lastly, a question: did you vote for Obama? Remember, it's his minions who are spying on you.
Version control was a solved problem 20+ years ago
... if you used VMS, that is ... Unfortunately VMS was never cool, for some reason I can't fathom.
Crappy code can keep you very profitably employed for a very long time. After all, the object of the game is to make as much money as possible in as short a time as possible, so that you can retire early. This strategy worked very nicely for me. You just have to learn to stop hating your job and employer.
Leave systems wide open to outside, then act surprised when said systems are attacked and scream to congress for new legislation to try to "fix" the problem. Hell, the solution is simple: close critical systems to outside access. However, this might mean that it would be necessary to spend extra money because access is now more difficult. And we surely wouldn't want any corporate or governmental entity to have to spend extra money, now would we?
1. How does one become an "expert in practical ethics"? 2. Who determines which personality and physical traits are desirable and which are not, and what is the policy for dispute resolution? Hitler would just love this guy.
there's no security either!! But we've all known this for a very long time, now haven't we??? And you're going to entrust your persoal data to "the cloud"???
Use VMS. A properly administered and monitored VMS system is the most hackproof I've ever seen (admittedly I've no experience of IBM mainframes).
