I'm not bothered by dissenting opinions. I'm bothered by reflexively produced bullshit showing neither reading nor thinking ability.
Then it's good neither the AC nor phantomfive were making that argument, now were they?
If you read customer requirements as well as you show you read a two-line slashdot post, I shudder to think of what code quality your customers get.
It's funny how you libertards suddenly forget about freedom and the big bad government when it's someone doing something you disapprove of.
The key is to keep this simple truth in mind: it's a job. You do it to survive.
Don't let your sense of self-worth and your identity get tied up in your view of your career. Your job does not define who you are, you do it because someone is paying you to do it for them.
There is satisfaction in doing the work well; and it is nice if the work fits with your personal tastes, but if you refuse to let it define you, you will be the happier for it.
And as a definite plus, it will strengthen your negotiation position. If it is just a job, it's easier to walk away if the compensation does not suit you.
Funny that, your point 2 is in direct contradiction to point 1a. You are effectively stating that your needs as the vendor are more important than the needs of the customer organisation.
Apparently you're a good example of "there's money to be made prolonging the problem".
Welcome to the new Versailles.
Of course, the good news is that we know how that ended.
Neither am I a zealot. In fact, the way you double down and try to invent a new definition of 'closed source' out of whole cloth does make you the zealous one.
No, England is closer to the rest of the Anglophone world. There is a reason SNP supporters are making noises about a second independence referendum for Scotland should Brexit become a real possibility.
To be fair, Nicola Sturgeon is keeping mum on the subject, but I don't think (from across the North Sea) she's against the notion.
Strange definition of 'closed source'. I remember Amiga manuals detailing those chips to the register level.
This is a level of tin-foil hattery I am not going to touch with even a ten-foot pole.
He's allowed to say anything he wants. That does not mean other people can't just point out that self-declaration is not proof of anything.
I suggest you do some self-examination on why you so vehemently protest the bloody obvious.
First of all, Aaron Clarey himself says he's not an MRA
Yes, and East Germany was a democracy.
Of course, the first article talks about the first time the Mauna Loa location hit 400ppm, while the article, as specifically pointed out in the Slashdot summary is about the global average hitting 400ppm.
Why don't you go fuck off and shut up until you've learned to read?
Iran's actions with regards Yemen are purely regional politics, nothing to do with any threats they may pose towards the West. Funny as it may seem, people and nations sometimes have multiple motivations to act.
In case of Yemen, it is a matter of Saudi-Arabia, Iran's most prominent opponent in the region, flexing its muscles against mostly Shia militias in Yemen. Iran seeing itself as the voice of the Shia minority in the ME, it is no surprise it should intervene.
You mean that part of the world that exclusively programs in C-derivatives?
