Last November at the end of a 2nd 300 hour month, I came down with the flu with still a month to go to make our deadline (ie, deathmarch). I was drinking so much coffee that I couldn't get enough sleep because I'd be tossing and turning all night stewing about work. The damned flu was giving me a raging headache anyway, so I just quit caffeine cold turkey. I only worked 60 hours that week, and the flu and withdrawal symptoms cleared up by the end of the week. I slept like a baby and finished the deathmarch. My bank account thanks that billable hours contracting gig, my sanity values my new position with work/life balance, and I don't miss the coffee.
You're not really wrong, but your writing style, along with your lack of punctuation and spelling; make you seem like a crazy person too.
Seems like many jobs that are "IT" are not really. I can't find anything that says a single development job was lost.
Of course, the alternative is that they release all of the data they collect, thereby publishing the public movements of everyone in LA to anyone with nefarious purposes.
Not storing the data is of course out of the question.
I'm sitting in Chicago's O'Hare airport right now, and we could use a coyote. I'm watching a mouse run around the empty first class lounge. TSA didn't touch my junk.
My absolutely puny hardware (all 5+ years old, or netbooks) does not experience this problem at all running different releases of Ubuntu. I did notice that Transmission sometimes chewed up too much processor when I had 10+ torrents going, but my bulk drive was NTFS. After I formatted it to ext4, even that went away. I routinely copy multiple GB files intra-drive, inter-drive, and intranetwork while browsing, youtubing, etc.
Maybe you're using an NTFS filesystem that isn't as efficient?
Again, my hardware is majorly obsolete. My only "multicore" setup is on a hyperthreading Atom.
One day, in the not so distant past, I had a PS3 that has Other OS and could play games online.
Then, Sony made me choose. This made me sad, because I liked them both. Today's news made me sadder, because it seems the reason that I had to choose, was moot.
I chose. It still sucked.
What is pimiping?
That is a pretty slick piece of kit. Did it work in linux without too much fuss?
Honestly, this is why I first installed Ubuntu on my old IBM laptop. As the windows installs went down, the linux installs went up. Linux spread through my whole family this way; First me and my wife, then my brothers, then my mother-in-law.
Worked fine in Chromium, with moonlight 2.3. No spoofing required.
The hatred for silverlight seems irrational, as most of us also have the adobe flash plugins installed too.
I wouldn't accept this either. These high frequency trading algorithms serve no market purpose except fleecing the little guy. The fact that the algorithm is making so much money would make me sick too.
The entire lot of them should be unemployed.
Why should NBC strip the captioning data that is already encoded in their OTA broadcasts when streaming it over the internet?
If the data is already available, they should be required to display it. IMO, NBC's refusal to display this data, when they already have exhibited the capability to do so, seems to be a deliberate middle finger to the hard of hearing.
