That's the best you kids can come up with these days? "Fuck Beta?" and the like? How about some constructive criticisms? I wonder how each of you would react if your own customers/clients/bosses criticized your work with some think along the lines of "Fuck that!" Or, "You're fired!" as opposed to something constructive that benefist both of you?

It has been MY experience that women coders do a much better job at documentation, readable syntax in their coding styles and much better factoring and re-factoring of software. In my opinion based on 30+ years of experience programming and dealing with programmers, is that only 25% of male programmers are competent and less than half of those are what I would call 'above average'. I've maybe met 10-12 awesome programmers in all that time. Must my $0.02 worth.
*F=Farads. I guess I should have written C=It/V.
Actually, you might be surprised at how large it would be. F=It/V. 10mS write time for a sector, 2S for a file. Voltage tolerances being about +/-5%. 3.3V operationg voltage. 5V source voltage. Say 80mA for operating current.
1.7V drop over 10mS should require about 470uF. To write a file (a 2-second file) would be something like: 80mA*2S/1.7V or about 94,000 uF.
I'm not trying to be a killjoy here, but trying to store data during bad-voltage and power-down situations is a nontrivial problem.
Silicon: sand and computer chips.
I have never heard truer words spoken in my half-century long life.
Zoid.com. I wish that I'd thought of that. LMAO!
The real reason to have many 'live' languages is simply that of diversity. In English you can make jokes with the two different meanings of the word letter. You can't do that in Spanish. They have their own word play. Different languages force different views and expressions of the world. having one or two or just a few verbal languages make as much sense as having one or two or just a few programming languages.
Just my $0.02 worth.
I love using Forth to debug new hardware as well as develop embedded control systems. As you are retired and looking for a new, (fun?) native language, I'd sure give it a try.
Actually the ionosphere forms both a waveguide and a capacitor with the Earth itself. Changes in potential, even in waveguide scenarios, will still radiate out into space.
BTW, I'm not a recruiter. I design embedded control systems (now) for 50W-100KW SR motor controllers. I reread my post and it seemed salesman-ish. that's not me. I'm a real systems engineer.
