Good luck on getting your homeowners to pay - what is your deductible. What is your limit on you car ins. It better be big it is nothing to run up a 100,000.00 bill at a hospital. In florida at HCA hospitals if you get taken to a "Trauma" center for being in an accident it is 30,000.00 the moment you come thru the door and that doesn't even cover any care.

Why is it a bad thing. My kids would have no insurance if they couldn't have been on my insurance for the last 5 yrs. You say you had pre-existing conditions but if you maintained your insurance then you couldn't be turned down going from one company to another, oh and Drs don't care about pre-existing conditions only the insurers do!

The comments at the end of the CISCO article flush out the fact that they noticed a line of malicious javascript at the end of a large number of .js files but they have no idea how it got there.

In fact the list of JS files given include many that are not even running on Linux servers.

The author is irresponsible at best, and incompetent at worst...

You are absolutely correct. I am appalled that /. even posted this with the title they used.

I have found it is a very good exercise to let the programmers tell me how long it is going to take to get the job done. We do it in a group setting with all the peers involved. The programmers don't want to look bad among their peers so they usually set realistic dates and work hard to meet them. Each week we review progress in a group setting. This seems to work very well.

I feel the same way. I am not a guru in any one thing but can do a lot in a lot of different things. it has kept me gainfully employed since 1970. I started out in college programming an IBM 1130 in fortran and assembler, moved to Burroughs L/TC accounting computers in assembler, then NCR, Cobol, Data General a myriad of languages, communications protocols hdlc, X25, sdlc, sna, 2780/3780, postgresql, php, html, C, C++, etc,etc.
