Bad designers think their design is far far more important than the information they are supposed to present, so they get fanatic about preventing even a single pixel being displaced, especially at the explicit request of the unsophisticated swine reading the page.
If you didn't do the math, I was doing Fortran on a mainframe at 10 years old. I did grow up with computers.Ben-Yehuda was already grown up when he got into Hebrew and Knuth was grown up when he got into algorithms.
Without Gates, Tiny BASIC would have ruled the day on micros instead. The rest would have unfolded in a similar way except people wouldn't have mental scars from dealing with Plug-n-Pray. IF anything, MS held the industry back.
Following the last link in TFS, and its link, We get a retraction of the story that is highly suspicious to say the least. Looking at "the investigation", we find a report that basically validates within reason all of the other stories by the author, leaving only the two on Carly but trying to spin the story as a complete failure to validate anything. The 'investigation' of those two seems to consist only of talking to a PR person at HP that denies the stories (yeah, big surprise, many buyers like to rationalize away and otherwise deny remorse) and "can't find" the person quoted in the company.
Retracting the article based only on that seems a bit extreme.
So how much could a clock cost?
It is a difference, but shouldn't be an expensive difference at non-ripoff rates.
Oh, they're all for it, just as Tepples said. As long as they don't have to think too hard about it or spend money on it. That's why they do nothing about the scenario you mention.
Not really, the salary offered is the salary offered, that's covered. What they don't like about the more experienced person is that they can't as easily con him/her into doing more for less.
The older landscaper who willingly accepts $20 to mow your lawn will just mow your lawn and expect $20. He won't also walk your dog and bag the poop and bring you your mail "just this once" every week..
I don't want to pay my electric bill. I prefer to climb the pole and discover electricity for myself. I don't want the man keeping me down making me pay my bills!
Surely, I must qualify as digital native in spite of being born in '66. I learned Fortran V ('77 wasn't out yet) on the school system's mainframe over a 300 baud modem. When I finally got a computer and modem of my own, I had to write a simple terminal program with Xmodem so I could download a real terminal program from a BBS.
My wife informs me that she is 1/Commodore 64th digital on her father's side.
Perhaps you believe the myth that the climb to wealth wasn't upon the backs of others./
That would be voting in your own interest. You value your children and their future well-being above your current well being.
Look up! You might see the point going by.
(in unison) We ARE individuals!
(lone man) I''m not!
Look deeper and you'll find the myths. Even in science, it has been commented that often the old guard has to die off for new ideas to be accepted.
Apparently you believe me to be sufficiently psychic to determine which subset of myths you buy in to from an anonymous posting on
I must say, that's an odd one.
It would be fair to say his writing has influenced my thinking.
