Stopped programming, began researching applications of industrial materials. Going into startup phase of new business after successful exit from software company.
Finding raising capital is relatively simple compared to selling software.
Security has infinite bypasses. As soon as a new layer is added another method appears to circumvent. Life, uh, finds a way.
Ahh kindred spirits!! There simply is something about the feeling of a perfectly machined system. Typing was a real bitch when I first learned in grade 9. By the time I was at Uni, my typing outpaced everyone I knew. It was then I discovered coding.
Nobody better touch my corsair k95 mechanical keyboard.
The G-keys up the side are so good for binding keys for any games or productivity and it's mechanical so that's awesome too.
I'm on the fence about interfaces that watch your hand movements. They seem like they would be prone to repeat stress injuries far worse than mouse & keys. Still waiting to see what people come up with. Perhaps a kind of malleable putty that lets you bind your own commands in it to whatever shapes or keys you come up with?
> Linux is more efficient as a server
Doing what, exactly? This is like saying that Volkswagen is more efficient as a vehicle.
> Windows server is most commonly used at the low end of the market
Bwha ha ha ha!! ha ha! Your $35 router and DHCP server runs Linux, which dominates this end of the market. See above.
I always friend people who impress the shit out of me. Chances are if you are a friend of one of those people, you can find other people who will also impress the shit out of you.
I don't believe that all speech is equal. In particular, any form of paid speech is, by definition, subject to forces that extend well beyond the focus, intent, and nature of the speech itself.
Personally, I don't believe that freedom of speech protections should apply to any form of advertisement or paid political announcements. Any entity endorsed or sponsored by any other entity should not, IMHO, be under freedom of speech protections regards any speech involving the sponsor or original source of funding.
I work for Hapco. Therefore, any speech I make regards Hapco should be subject to reduced protections, IMHO.
As a developer myself, I watched the clusterfu#! of Microsoft launching, then dropping, platform after platform... And every time they did that, I thanked myself for not investing in the previous platform!
Want to guess how much that made me want to invest in their next platform?
I already have audio technica m50x's and beyerdynamic dt770s. I'm not buying a phone that they won't work with, and I'm not switching to your fucking bluetooth beats you greedy fucks.
Hello friend of a friend!
It's easy to suspect and hypothesize. It's quite another thing to prove it.
At my company, we use Enterprise Edition OS (CentOS or RHEL) specifically because of the long, long term support. Think: a decade.
For our product, we used RHEL 4 for its entire duration, and then jumped to EL 6, where we are now. We will probably not use EL 7 but go to EL 8 if it's available at or before the EL 6 EOL.
Personally, I'm a fan of having a default password be something intrinsic and unique to that specific device, such as
a wifi router with the default password being both fairly strong and printed on the bottom.
