Tech Recruiters Defend 'Blacklists,' Lack of Feedback, Screening Techniques

IMightB Re:Scum (253 comments)

Your sound like the rare exception to the rule. I was recently on a job hunt and put my resume up on dice and monster. I immediately started getting phone calls from people who could barely speak english and wanted me to accept senoir level offers in the SF Bay area for $40/hour with no relocation package. After doing a bit of research, I quickly realized that $40/hour in SF Bay is absolute chump change. I have a wife and 2 kids and that basically leaves me a poverty level unless I want a 2 hour commute wach way. I'd get them up to something reasonable like $85.00/hour and they would mysteriously stop callinf me back. I'm assuming it's because they found a better chump..

Ebola Forecast: Scientists Release Updated Projections and Tracking Maps

IMightB Re:This is related (294 comments)

What's the big deal. Facts we know about Ebola

1) If you are non-symptomatic, you cannot spread it.

So she decided to go for a bike ride with her BF after spending a bit of time in an isolation tent, testing negative multiple times, being released and going home.

Also, how many people were infected by the NY doctor? Or by Duncan after it was realized he had Ebola, as opposed to people that got it when he went to the ER for general purposes?

Where are the Flying Cars? (Video; Part One of Two)

IMightB Re: Obviously... (107 comments)

Nonsense. If we all simply stopped believing in secular BS like "Science" and "The Laws of Physics" we'd already have flying cars, unobtainium and sharks with lasers on their foreheads.

Yahoo To Add PGP Encryption For Email

IMightB Re: It's a TRAP! (175 comments)

I dunno I worked for a large scale email company for almost a decade... They basically persused every possible encryption method possible except for pgp. Mainly for business reasons.. For instance if an employee ever left the company, the private key basically went with them so if emails were encrypted. All of it would be effectively lost to the city company.

This lead to developments efforts to hat would basically give lip service to encryption but little real security...

While a lot depends on what implementation details they come up with, yahoo seriously perusing PGP is probably a good thing.
