First off, glassdoor isn't a representative set. Secondly, it counts salary only, not bonuses and equity that can be half of your take home. Third, it does averaging but doesn't drop out old days points- days points from 09 are horribly outdated, but included in their averages. Glassdoor is good for reviews, but it's salary numbers are junk.
Lead acid batteries can produce hydrogen gas. Not sure what nicads do, except for "very little".
Exactly. This is the probably the best and least error prone book I know about his life. I've read it more than twice.
I gave up spray deodorant and switched to stick years ago, simply because I didn't want to be inhaling aluminum chlorohydrate and other goodies. That it isn't good for the environment is secondary to that.
I agree that smaller government isn't "the" answer, but smaller is easier to keep an eye on, and much of the "smaller" means that things instead get shifted to the state or local level. Frankly, I like that, because I can easily go downtown, or easy enough to the state capital, but when D.C. is in charge, there is zero chance of being heard. I would rather be a tiny voice here in NC than a non-existent one in DC.
So you are saying only rich people should be able to break the rules? Do you have any fucking idea how patently offensive and elitist your comment is?
The point of the blackouts is to extort money from the fans for an overpriced live experience. If they really wanted to sell out every game, they should study basic economics and drop prices. They'll still make ridiculous amounts of money.
Android does sandbox apps. The default internal directory for each app can only be read/written by itself. Prior to version 4.2, the SD card was public and could be read/written by anyone. 4.2 and later, only parts of the SD cared are publicly readable and only parts are publicly writable.
In both cases before and after 4.2 uninstalling will remove the private directory. It will also remove any private directory on the SD card, so long as the app used the default location. Some apps don't, purposely, so their data will persist if reinstalled.
In the last few years I've gone to games and I've watched on TV. I'd never pay sticker price to go to a game again- TV is a MUCH better experience. No weather, no annoying asshole standing up in front of you, better food, better priced food and drink, instant replays, etc. If you're watching sports (rather than participating) its just better all around on TV. I'm more engaged at home.
Funnily enough, I'd rather go to a concert. That's an experience. Sports in person don't do it for me, even if I like the sport.
No, only iPhones are like that. I don't know a single Android phone that doesn't have a replacable battery. And most phones are not from Apple.
But this is one of the few times when the article is actually more interesting than the comments here. Worth reading, even if that is breaking the unwritten rules around here.
Postgres-XL's main focus is OLAP workloads. Buzzword: Big Data.
They both borrow code from each other. At some time in the future it's entirely possible that the two will merge.
That is right. I was in during the middle 80s when it existed, but was still rare.
No, it was called a Senior Airman. Very few Sr.Amn went to NCO school and took the rank of buck sgt. before just going for staff, so the majority of E4s were Airman tier, not NCO tier. Sr. Amn and Buck paid the same, both being E4, with the only difference being NCO school and tier, plus some advantages (priority) if you wanted to separate rats and quarters and were single. Oh, and the star on your sleeve was silver instead of blue, although that isn't a perk, just an indication you were an NCO.
Note that most of the "exceptional" airmen back then would simply go below the zone (make E5/Staff Sgt. in less than 4 years) rather than seek buck sgt. Bucks were fairly rare for a variety of reasons, including the above.
Yes, I was in the Air Force. So was most of my family.
