US Court Tells Microsoft To Stop Selling Word

Burgundy Advocate Yup, that's an infringement y'all... (403 comments)

Anyone else stop reading after they saw "a judge in a Texas court"? I'm not a Microsoft fan, but this is getting ridiculous.

Is a $72.5m Opening Weekend Enough For Star Trek?

Burgundy Advocate Uh... yes. (820 comments)

Yes. Considering the last movie didn't even break even and we're only a few days in, this is fan-fucking-tastic for a trek movie.

All us dorks can rejoice ;)

Do Nice Engineers Finish Last In Tough Times?

Burgundy Advocate I used to feel like this (613 comments)

But think I started valuing *myself*.

Look, there's quite a difference between being assertive and being an ass. Being passive and being nice is also not the same.

Communication skills are very important in the modern company. I don't care who you are---the days of the lone wolf are long gone, if they ever truly happened in the first place.

Be willing to stand up for yourself. Treat others with respect, and take pride in your work. Make sure others know who you are and your value.

It's not backstabbing. It's healthy human interaction. And it'll lead to you having more respect higher up and among your peers.

The nice vs. mean question is a false dichotomy, and being strong doesn't have to imply you're an ass.
