We don't have to "Talk soft and carry a big stick" anymore, we can offer our troops to the UN for UN decisions. But like all the veto powers on the UN Security Council, we have an irrational fear of giving up our sovereignty to a deliberately-crippled global "government".
You don't do what someone tells you to just because they have a gun, or a nuke, pointed at your head. That's letting the terrorists win.
I think there are enough examples in history to prove that appeasement does not work. Russia Ascendant is not the doomsday scenario we may have believed it was during the Cold War, but no country, not even a UN Security Council veto power, gets to unilaterally occupy another member of the UN.
So, live your entire life as though you're going to get fired tomorrow. Sounds like real fun.
Have you been to the internet? Do you think anything is off limits?
This and only this kind of thinking will get us out of our current, sustained political quagmire.
- How to design a solution on my own time before I code a solution on company time.
Though I inevitably unconsciously think about work code during non-work time, I will never consciously spend time thinking about or working on work code during non-work time.
They are paying for my brain, they can pay me to sit and think for a while. The actual typing of code is not what programming is.
I'm assuming this is a joke, because a lot of people cannot afford to just up and move because they don't like what a utility company is doing.
Neither one trips many environmental triggers, except the steady stream of self-indulgent bullshit that both produce.
I honestly don't think I can break 80wpm. My bottleneck in programming is not how fast I can type, or how efficient my vim-fu, but how fast I can think, and how fast I can mentally develop the solution (reading documentation, drawing conclusions, and finally writing as little code as I possibly can).
You'd need to get rid of copyright too, which the GPL uses to enforce its provisions.
Every software becomes legacy software the minute it is released. Once you enter a real-world scenario, you need to change and write workarounds for real-world problems.
A new version is a chance to build a better base that handles the real-world problems more smoothly, but it is also an opportunity to forget the lessons those workarounds were written for.
No, and that is a ludicrous analogy.
It's more, I should not go into someone else's home, leave my stuff there, and when a legally-dubious thing happens to be in my stuff in their house, I should not expect them to simply let it go (considering that a lot of legally-dubious things have clauses about "conspiracy" and "required to report").
I work with one, but technically they aren't in academia anymore. Perhaps he didn't give off enough of that vibe.
