Comment Re:Side project... (Score 1) 100

I've never met a software developer, musician, or artist who didn't have a side project of some sort in addition to their "day job".


You're putting software developer in the same category as musician or artist?!?

Which one of these things doesn't belong?

Writing software is considered a creative act.

I was one of the participants in the Department Of Labor study that decided that,

Jobs that are more than 50% creative are exempt from overtime pay requirements. Software engineering, unless you are job-shopping it as a contractor is considered more than 50% creative. Which means that if you are salaried, you don't get overtime pay.

Personally, when I write software, it's being processed in the part of my brain that processes music. Meaning I literally can't write software if there's music playing at the same time.

"Microsoft responds..."

We have no idea what would lead Jeremy Archibald Plevin of 2217 Sand Fort Terrace, Blivet Michigan, whose social security number is 555-666-7777, and who only has $9,472 in his bank account and that $100 savings bond his grandfather gave him when he turned 13, and tends to watch an average of 17.3 cat videos per month, and whose favorite search term is 'midget porn' (seriously, Jeremy?1?) to make such unfounded accusations. However, we'd like to assure you, they are unfounded.

I'm OK if they are forced to use it for >= 5G... if they won't provide 5G willingly, and are holding it hostage to a crippled net neutrality: sorry: I guess you don't get new spectrum.

And yes, I'm aware, that most of the asses in the /. article are European, but some of them are the same companies in both the U.S. and Europe.

Comment Re:How about having a user accessable mem card slo (Score 2) 235

It's not only Apple. My Nexus from Google doesn't have a memory slot either. Why!?

You got sent the one without the slot because you are on the "don't slot list". You probably dropped you phone in the toilet while in a drunken stupor at some point in the past (that's how most people end up on the "don't slot list").
