## Comment Re:bringing in more H1Bs will solve this problem (Score 1)250

I work for one of the top 5 suppliers for that stuff. And it's C code all the way here for anything that runs on these devices.

I think you underestimate the market for engine control, exhaust aftertreatment and safety systems.

And how many jobs actually require you to get "close to the metal"?

The important ones. Like, developing software for control units in vehicles.

Hierarchy has been the primary source of inefficiency everywhere I've ever worked. But how to design an organization that can coordinate itself without hierarchy, especially given that it's made of humans used to playing games of master and servant rather than cooperating for common goals?

Create a common goal, for starters. The rest will fall into place.

Expected article on huge fire in south america, which ignites more natural gas and coal deposits than it should, hinting at larger deposits than previously expected.

Left disappointed.

## Comment Re:only "discrete" Fourier/Integral transforms (Score 1)158

This has nothing to do with discrete transforms. "Simple" example: \int_{-\inf}^{+\inf} \delta(x) f(x) dx = f(0)

where \delta(x) is the Dirac delta distribution and f(x) a smooth function (e.g.: exp(-itx)/sqrt(2\pi) ).

This uncertainty is also the cause why every laser has a finite spectral width: even a perfect sinoidal electromagnetic wave must have a length in the time regime which is finite - else the wave would hold an infinite amount of energy.
