Some developers like liberal copyright licenses too.
You're just a bit too much a programmer, and a tad too sharp an entrepreneur.
Become somewhat more a manager and factor in some 'fat' -- both in the invoices you charge your customers, and in the time you allocate your contractors. Remember, crap happens. If it doesn't, and your contractors manage to deliver bug free code ahead of time, give them a 'performance' or 'quality' bonus (i.e. payment for the full time allocated). Do not chase profit maximisation like big shops do. They have adequate manpower buffers to beat you at your own game.
Alternatively, hire someone skilled --- but don't be cheap. Remember, if you chase cost reduction like the small shops, your employee obtains the hunger (he already has the skills) to beat you at your own game.
Or cutback on the custom that you give that corporation
No, they'd be something akin to a wiretap warrant issued by (mostly) just judges following (mostly) just laws.
They do have significant terror issues and want to be able to do these intercepts...
The problem is their track record on human rights. Being ruled by just laws is a human right. It's upto Moxie. But have you considered the implications of moxie revealing this man's name. Think about it Mr.
And btw, your govt. is *able* to intercept communications. Including this. But I think you mean intercept all comms
Actually, let me reverse my own comment... (having read up on Saudi Arabia's human right's record).
The issue is the Saudi's can target terror with these MITM tools -- true. But they also have a track record targeting basic human rights (free press, faith).
Moxie is well within his rights turning down the job. However, its best he did not reveal the name of the Saudi gent (who still seems sincere).
The Saudi bloke seems to have said nothing wrong... and he is sincere. Which is more than you can say about Moxie -- who's protecting "privacy" by revealing one side of a private conversation.
Now that's an idea for an AI bot in a game.
"Stop son! I see you're trying to open a document with embedded demons. Would you like to scan this portal for malware first,..."
Um, we're killing off plant cover, while increasing CO2. So there IS a problem.
HOWEVER, I fail to see how being fixated on a single source of CO2 measurements (Mauna Loa) is helping the issue.
I was on the island which houses the Mauna Loa observatory last month. There has been a recent (since the last 2-3 years) rise in emissions from volcanoes some miles adjacent to the observatory (so much so, there is an issue with 'vog' -- volcanic smog -- on the island).
Now, I've read about techniques the observatory uses to sidestep that issue, but
What is the *global* (not just Mauna-Loa) CO2 average? Is it rising precipitously? How fast? Its hard to get a straight answer for these questions from Google.
True. Lots of European and American companies also agree.
I second this -- there is nothing that can give her the full functionality of hands or feet. But if that can be avoided by a horde of Slashdotters googling for alternatives to this medicine, that'd be better.
As far as possible, Do NOT work for companies that do this.
In fact try to *not* have a mobile at all... (Its possible). Try to keep your work to daytime, non-weekend hours only.
Hannibal... is that you?

> Agreed. The last thing the STEM field needs is an influx of people thinking our careers require no self-sacrifice and aptitude.
Self-sacrifice and even an 'aptitude' towards most things, can be developed by parents in the vast majority of children. E.g., the Polgar and Williams sisters.
What GP really needs is to stop pushing _his_ ideology down the parent's throat.
Sooner... At what cost?
