Currently, the lowest price I can find on plain old Amtrak service from Baltimore to New York is $77 if I leave next week. (Less than half the distance between LA and SF.) Cut that train trip time in half, and I'd pay the extra cost over a Bolt bus.
Comparing the professional musician market to the professional programming market seems dubious at best because the demand for those two services is radically different. Being a professional musician has always been about somehow standing out from the other millions of kids who want to be a star too. On the other hand, we're pretty much tripping over work to do in the programming world. If you can write code, and you don't absolutely suck, you will have work of some sort. It won't be rock star work, but it'll be an honest job that pays a comfortable living wage.
I used to do some web development for a company that primarily resold other peoples' software, and offered training on it. I got in some pretty epic arguments with this one sales guy that always said the website didn't "look like a startup website." I could see myself just sending him one of these and asking if that was what he was looking for.
As a 'newsworthy' person, surely Goebbels' diary can be excerpted for the purpose of writing a biography, right? I could see the estate's point if Random House was simply republishing Goebbels' diary.
That all sounds great except for the me getting injured part. I'd rather Richie Rich was deterred in the first place.
Fortunately, the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) made it into space before it could be killed by another republican adminstration.
NoScript is currently showing twenty-eight (28) scripts running in my browser (I temporarily permitted all to see what the actual number was). Still kind of a lot, but where did you get 90?
Fine: Here's the file
Also, SoundCloud is pretty well-known. I'm sorry it's not up to your standards.
I think what the OP is getting at is that if enough people don't trust Lenovo, and Lenovo goes under as a result, it would be a great lesson to the other manufacturers that putting this sort of crapware on their machines doesn't pay in the long run. It's not an unreasonable point of view, but I think you're right, because I think the Superfish debacle won't be enough to drive Lenovo out of business. All we have left is the carrot of being a potential future customer since the stick of beating down Lenovo won't be effective.
How much does it cost to put a person in minimum security prison for a year? If we jailed enough people to be a deterrent, the cost to society would be enormous. Certalnly higher than the cost of piracy.
The population of Wilmington is 70,851, and New Castle has 538,479 people total, including Wilmington. Harrison County has 65,631 people including Marshall. Wilmington has more people than the entire Harrison County. Yeah, Marshall is a very small city in a rural area. Maybe it's not Oklahoma rural, but compared to the east coast in general, it's pretty damn rural.
Which is how we'll know who to put up against the wall and shoot.
... or NFL coaches for that matter, are who we look to for good judgment in computing.
You know, a good bus driver kind of _is_ a hero. They take on a huge responsibility for crappy pay. Unfortunately, many of them are rather bad at it, but it's pretty understandable that anybody with any sense would choose another line of work.
