Comment Maybe the question is a bit misleading (Score 2) 627

It seems to me he is asking if it makes you a bad programmer to rely on auto-complete, not just relying on an IDE in general:

Mombrea argues that 'being a good developer isn't about memorizing the language specific calls

As a recent C# convert, I can tell you that for me, it has become quite addicting.

I had a teacher who was a minotaur. We complained to the superintendant but he wouldn't do anything.

He would show up 20 minutes late, shit all over the floor, and complain about the humans who tresspass in his forest.

He wasn't even trying to do his job, but I guess competence or dedication of a teacher can never be questioned.

This is a true story. Its on the internet so you know its true.

"Second of all, all you parents in the room .... pointless stereotyping and rage ...."

I am a parent in this room. My son is nothing like that. I would say that I don't know any of the kids in his school are like you describe. Those stereotype that people like to throw around are just bullshit. They are probably the same things people said about you when you were in school; and its just as invalid now, as it was then.

What IS different know, is a concerted 'attack?' on PUBLIC school teachers. I am not sure why. My sister is a third grade teacher, I assume she does a good job. She is however, dirt poor because of low pay and still ends up buying her own room supplies. I am not sure why anyone would want to be a public school teacher these days. Maybe thats the goal.

Why don't you look in the mirror and ask yourself why you like to think and write about whore school girls in see through leggings with no underwear.

" they had signed with the programmer, an agreement for the developer to be compensated by royalties for the first edition and any derivative works"

The fact that a jury already found his claim valid, and he is only asking for compensation from the first few editions of Madden (not all versions up to current gen), makes me think he probably is due compensation.

But, you now how lawyers are. I am sure the EA lawyers can prove that the sky is green. ...."it depends on what your definition of 'is' is..."

Comment Sounded interesting at first (Score 1) 221

This sounded interesting, until I went to the site. I don't own any apple devices and I don't use facebook or twitter. I see a small link to create an account with an email address...but I get the sneaky suspicion that this site is less about news and more about harvesting user data to sell.
Oh well. I might be wrong.
