Comment Conventional warfare is dead (Score 2, Insightful) 193

I want my money back. This pig isn't going to fly, and even if it does, this type of warfare is dead. Future wars will be fought with pilotless (and maybe even autonomous) vehicles. Cyber warfare will also be much more devastating than whatever damage this overpriced toy can produce. We should dock the pay of every congress critter who voted for it until it's paid back in full.

Comment Won't help (Score 1) 293

Shaming these morons isn't going to help. They won't stop until they either kill themselves or somebody else. I've given up counting the number of people I see dicking with their phones while they drive - even cops.

Autonomous cars can't get here soon enough. Human beings just aren't smart enough to be driving.

Great point, and it's exactly what I'm seeing now. I've currently transitioned to more of a devops role with 3 large projects on my plate, but I'm still dragged into discussions around large sections of the code. It's been very hard to push some of our teams to take full responsibility for their areas of the code.

I've become the "goto" guy for a lot of stuff simply by being curious. I've had a significant hand in every single piece of our application and know it better than anybody else on the team. I volunteer for things that scare the shit out of most of our developers. All it takes is, "Huh. This is broken. I wonder how it works?" to become Mr. Indispensable.
