The utilities are used to a certain amount of revenue. If we start cutting into that revenue stream, they'll up the rates to keep the revenue constant.
Who's the loser?
Think of the global implications to surrealism!
It's the money, stupid.
Most of the posters either denigrated the study or made the assertion that we catch up later in life.
This defensive response validates the study and shows the insecurity of the male mindset.
Female minds integrate facts faster and better than the male mind and females multitask better than males.
I believe that the female mind is more adapted to the psychology of game-making than the male mind. The programming technology for game development allows this difference to manifest.
Programming is the means to an end. Remove the technological hurdle and the innate abilities show themselves.
Males are better at learning programming; it's a cognitive task that we are good at. Females want to "get to it" without having to learn the language.
Girl-invented games would be more relational than sequential, have more intricate plots and provide more variety of response to a (perceived) threat.

PFC at 25?
He may have had other problems with the Army. At 25, he should at least be some kind of sergeant.
Further information: the (invited, as I remember) attendees were given the code for review a few days before the walk-through.
At one shop we had code walk-throughs. They specifically not termed "code-walkons,"
Several programmers --- no managers --- would schedule a conference to review and comment on code.
These walk-throughs were a good idea --- the coder wasn't attacked by one person; others were (probably) more tactful than yours truly.
I learned a lot of respect for my co-workers, not to mention new ways of doing things.
I searched for PostgreSQL and didn't find it.
I respectfully suggest that you replace your planned database engine with PostgreSQL.
1. it doesn't use litigaton as part of its profit picture;
2. is is about as fast as the selected database when specified with similar options;
3. it doesn't lose data as much as the selected database by a wide margin.
4. it is tied to the academic community.
Just a few thoughts.
