Taking a Look At High-End Programmer Salaries

Anonymous Custard Re:Salary per hour is more important. (133 comments)

The idea is to work extra, save money, and use that to buy even more free time down the road (early retirement, for example).

But most people forget the saving part, and spend it as soon as they earn it, and wonder why they feel poor on $150,000 per year.

Microsoft Patents XML Word Processing Documents

Shouldn't that result in fewer patent approvals? It's not like patents just approve themselves.

In case you do, don't trust FOX News to be "Fair & Balanced"

In case you do, don't trust FOX News to be "Fair & Balanced", or even "News".

I just watched a "fair and balanced report by Fox News' Brian Wilson." on how Kerry and Edwards actually are rich, though they talk about being in tune with the common american. Before the report, it showed a preview for an evening news report on how some people think GW Bush ranks up there with Washington, Roosevelt and Lincoln. Then the Wilson report went on to bash Kerry and Edwards for having money, without a single mention of how GW Bush's ranch costs more than Kerry and Edwards' homes combined! Fair and Balanced my ass.
