top The Students Who Feel They Have the Right To Cheat
Exams generally try to determine how you have memorized some subject, not how you can adapt what you've learned.
By cheating on exams you're basically fooling yourself.
The point of education is to give you some stepping stone to each subject and something for you to go on when you need to research the subject further yourself.

top 'Microsoft Lumia' Will Replace the Nokia Brand
The branding people at Nokia probably guessed what's going to happen with windows phone and made the product name to a subtle joke.
Lumia in Finnish translates as plural of snow in past tense.
If you use it in a sentence: "Menneen talven lumia" (common anecdote) it translates as "Thing of the past"

Ahem.. Baseball is pretty much the national sport next to ice hockey in Finland. Although it's the local version of the game. Pitching is vertical instead of horizontal(US baseball) and the field is shaped like a upside down triangle with a rectangle on top rather than diamond(US)

top New Study Projects World Population of 11B by 2100
The article mentions it vaguely but I predict this growth will be limited more by major outbreak of some disease or diseases.
Possibly some form of influenza or other nasty bug like airborne ebola should wipe medium portion of the population at some point in the future.
Alternatively, or should I say additionally rising pollution levels at highly populated areas will cause health problems at increasing rate.

How is this blow against Uber?
Uber is illegal in Finland as taxis here need a license to operate and they have service obligation.
Uber would allow the drivers to bypass the service obligation by rating the user with note like "user is in wheelchair" and that would give the driver the option to skip the ride which would be discriminating towards the user ordering the service(although not necessarily directly obvious) and thus bypassing the service obligation.

The former Nokia X series is still being produced and continues to be sold under Microsoft
according to Elop.
As the merger is now complete and Microsoft owns and operates the former Nokia mobile operations, Microsoft actually became a Linux vendor.
Microsoft now has a consumer product for sale which is running Linux as its primary OS kernel.
The game is over. Torvalds won.
top Ask Slashdot: When Is a Better Career Opportunity Worth a Pay Cut?
Going after a startup for innovative work might me interesting and rewarding but it might not neccessarily pay your mortgage.
There are many benefits in working with well established platform and performing maintenance coding.
Personally, I would never accept pay cut for "I'm bored with my current job".
You can always find more rewarding job with higher salary if you really want to.
Just remember you don't have to rush out, and don't let the door hit you in the ass when you leave.
World is actually annoyingly small place and you will end up bumping into your old colleagues and it's much better if you are in good terms with them.
I actually did this kind of move just recently.
I left my old job for a position in a much smaller company with old, almost ancient infrastructure.
One of the main reasons for leaving was the salary, the small company does not have capital/revenue of even /10 of the old company but they pay proper salary nevertheless.
I didn't double my salary by switching but taking into account the layoffs which were foreseeable in the old position, I'd might aswell say I did double up.

Problem with bitcoin and other virtual currencies is pretty much same as real currencies as well.
It accumulates to certain individuals who instead of keeping the cash flowing and market running hoard it like Scrooge McDuck.
The imagined lack of availability with increased interest drives the price point up for those who participate at the market and this creates valuation bubble.

why not just let it go and retire
Not everything in life is about money, atleast when you have enough not to worry if you can pay the rent or maybe buy food tomorrow.
Having extra time and nothing to do can be really dulling and boring in numerous ways.
The company is their baby. They built it and they want to see it succeed.
Sometimes it's good to scale back and rethink the direction.

top Stop Fixing All Security Vulnerabilities, Say B-Sides Security Presenters
DNS is something which should be easy to document by providing bunch of examples.
There isn't that many ways to configure it if you consider the variations you can do.
For some reason djbdns does not do this, it gives vague hints and makes you read 50 man pages followed by 100 blog post and 200 websites with obsolete/slightly relevant info on what you're trying to accomplish and if the position of the moon is decent, your tinkering will eventually work.
When you reach the "oh it works" phase, you follow "if it works, don't f**king touch it!" mantra and you're good.
I've tried going through the djbdns code to implement some changes and it's really well written in the sense that you can get grasp of what's going on in there quite fast.
The code is simple in a way which reminds me of some early cisco code I've seen for stuff like switches and routers.
Maybe the "competition" is so bad at doing the same thing because over-engineering?
If the documentation of djbdns would be in par with the code quality, I'd call it superb software. Now it's "I need the features it provides so I deal with the issues and use it"
