Developers May Be Getting 50% of Their Documentation From Stack Overflow

Kjuib Re:Astroturfing Detected (418 comments)

It is one our test for hiring a new developer. "If you google for help and there are 2 links, stackoverflow and somethingexchange which one do you click on?" If they don't say stack overflow, then they haven't done enough real world work for us.

Can Valve's 'Bossless' Company Model Work Elsewhere?

Kjuib Re:No (522 comments)

We got a step closer, all our dev management is only part-time. They are also on a team doing development for the other half of their day. Wont work with all people, but it helps to keep management involved in day to day task, in the know.

I don't think this will work in areas where the employees aren't also the target market (they build games, w00t). But it doesn't mean something closer to this would make work more fun.

TI vs. Calculator Hobbyists, Again

Kjuib Re:How long since you were in school? (417 comments)

The only way to get people not to cheat on test is give them nothing to cheat with. Which means either you take their intelligent essence to an alternate reality... or you can just give them a calculator instead of letting them use their own.

More Venting....

Kjuib Kjuib writes  |  more than 9 years ago

I think slashdot is broke... I have been sitting with nuetral Karma for about 3 months... have a semi-good post here and there... then I get a good post... FP on a poll... and I get a +4 funny mod... yah me! right? ... no... my karma gets dropped to Bad for some reason. I think CowBoyNeal has it in for me. Death can only follow...

Venting

Kjuib Kjuib writes  |  more than 10 years ago

It is time to vent a little about the karma and comment system... I enjoy slashdot, and I enjoy the comments of all the great users. I like to add comments myself and add to conversations. After getting positive mods and working up to a positive karma rating, I posted something I though was a legitamate opionion for myself, but someone decided it was a troll and modded me down for it. this shot my karma rating form positive down to terrible... after all the positive ones. This is pathetic, that severlly limits my commenting options. I think the negative mods weigh a little too much in the karma ratings.
I tried emailing them and asking to be fixed, so I could enjoy the commenting part of slashdot, but to no avail. Vent... vent... vent...
Steam all gone now...

People

Kjuib Kjuib writes  |  more than 10 years ago

People are like spam. You can try to filter them out, but they just keep coming. They get in the way of the important information you are trying to get to. They also are very ditrubing to read - sick, twisted, and in need of help. They also try to leech information out of you, usually this is in the form of money. And if none of the rest apply, they just point the direction to something else more damaging.

Remember: Stupidity is Contagious, the only cure is Death.
