Comment Re:If you want to write a book, just do it (Score 1) 276

With all possible respect to all the CS experts of the world, that's not what they teach. Finding a good organization of your application that makes structures easy to break down, processes easy to follow and changes easy to implement doesn't involve deep, abstract mathematical formulations with optimal answers. It's about creating functional units (objects, layers, modules, services) with clear responsibilities that abstract away internal details,

I'm not sure about your university, but my professors tried to teach that in addition to the math stuff.

Comment Re:Amateur Sys-admin deserves the time (Score 1) 115

As making a living out of being all things 'admin' (sys/network/engineering, ect.), he totally deserves this. This guy is total amateur-hour and quite simply deserves what he got.

It's a non-violent crime. He wasn't even trying to hurt anyone, that was an accident. Prison doesn't seem excessive to you? He should be forced to pay damages and be done with it.

Comment Re:Init alternatives (Score 1) 286

I think if it were just an init system, most people would be ok with it (or gripe a little and then move on, like with other alternative init systems that have existed in the past).

The major issue people are concerned about is that things will be built on top of systemd (and they have been built on top of systemd), and then you have a huge unrelated dependency on this init system which makes it hard to swap out in the future if you want to use containers.

Comment Re:They only show gorgeous women (Score 1) 237

In Meiji era Japan, it was seen as attractive for women to paint their teeth black. Do you find that hot?

Yeah, actually, although it is might be an acquired taste. The whole color-scheme of the face probably needs to change.

I agree with your point though, what is thought of as attractive can change dramatically even within a few years.

Comment Re:Milton Frieldman? (Score 1) 451

So.......we just had an article on Slashdot that showed there are more jobs in America now, at the end of the Obama administration, than there ever have been in the entire history of the US. More people working.

When do you expect that AI job reduction to actually start showing up in the numbers? That is, when do you think the number of jobs available will start decreasing instead of increasing?
