An Army Medal For Coding In Perl
You thought outside the BOX! That is General material!
But seriously the military does so many things ass backwards and there are people who will be mad at your because you now have replaced 3 people with one person.
Just think on the civilian sector working for the Federal Gov you have eliminated 4 jobs and have saved tax payers millions in paychecks and retirement benefits.
But you have just put 100+ people out of a job and they are mad at your because the Gov owes them something.
Don't rock the boat because people don't want anything to get better. They want things to remain the same.
Want a living wage working at MC Dookies!? Suuuuure!!!! Bring out those iPad POS systems! Who needs workers manning the front counter! Get in the back Fry guy!
Ask Slashdot: Computer Science Freshman, Too Soon To Job Hunt?
Get yourself a job if you can. This BS about internships is 50/50 at best.
Make some money in the area you wish to work in and if it's not the area get another job that is.
Never be afraid to change jobs and never be afraid to take risks. I have and they have all paid off.
The $100,000 Device That Could Have Solved Missing Plane Mystery
I remember when our Marine Corps KC-130's had such outdated radar, Our Naviguesser who was an enlisted person had to plot everything by paper.
Then they retrofitted several of our KC-130's with new GPS devices. WOW 100 times more accurate and several years latter got rid of the Navigator.
Very little was done to the aircraft to implement it and in fact I believe we reused the existing wiring from our Radar unit and spliced different connectors to plug in the GPS device.
It was 4 times smaller took up less space and it was so freaking reliable they never broke.
Just strap a fucking Go Pro on the damn Airplanes they seem just as indestructible as a Black box and they float!
These are the same airlines who were told in the late 1970's to install reinforced cockpit doors due to increased hijackings.
It's too expensive! They all exclaimed. 4 aircraft destroyed during 9/11 and I don't remember the number of lives.
But they have the audacity to charge extra for baggage fees and whatever else they feel like tacking on.
Now we all pay for the high school push out TSA Grope agents feeling up your wife and taking X-rays pics of your kids.
Fucking airlines When they invent transporter technology I am going to beam a fucking dildo up each CEO's ass! and all the TSA agents.

New Russian Fighter not up to western standards
This is why I will never work for an Indian owned company again. They want everything for nothing.
They want an F-22 at a T-38 price.
They were better off buying F-16's with upgrade avionics packages.
PC Shipments In 2013 See the Worst Yearly Decline In History
My gamming rig that was 5 years old needed a refresh so I bought a complete rig from one of those online places that sells you the Motherboard, CPU and Memory combo. Along with a deeply discounted graphics card.
No difference whatsover in performance in my current games or apps. Software still has not been opmitized to take advantage of faster CPU speeds.
If your PC is 5 years old stay with it.
The next frontier in ripping people off for the next 10 years is Cellphones. The industry has shifted and it's new phones every year for people.
What an awsome platform for planned obsolence and a captive audence of millions CHA CHING!
Percentage of Self-Employed IT Workers Increasing
The ammount of systems an IT worker has to manage these days is like running an Aircraft carrier along with launching and landing planes.
If an IT dept. is ran well they start reducing the ammount of employees required to run the company. If things are crashing every other day then the wrath of Khan comes down.
IT administrators hold the keys to the universe but get the dirty end of a used mop. Upper management cries when you are making over 100k a year but if you were to price out each job you are doing it would cost them well over 500k a year.
I make good money but man when I see sales weasels making over 250k a year I need to get out of the IT game.

LoJack To Release Tracking Devices For Consumers, Insurance, and Auto Makers
Bullshit! Bullshit! More Bullshit.
Stake holders are greedy SOB's just like the rest of us. The moment an insurance company offers them millions if not billions to purchase that treasure trove of data there goes your insurance premiums.
Just like Progressive who has that dongle you plug into your vehicle. If any dope out there has installed that in their car should lose your license.
Most Drivers Would Hand Keys Over To Computer If It Meant Lower Insurance Rates
What a bunch of bullshit. Insurance companies aren't interested in lowering your insurance rates. If that was the case they woudln't be spennding 5 billion in adds all over the place to convince you 15 mins could save you 15%

NYT Publisher Says Not Focusing on Engineering Was A Serious Mistake
Now here was a paper who was forward thinking. Just like Japanese car makers never make excuses they just execute.
Japan knew the Internet was going to make a lot of content obsolete and so they started to release CD's of their news archives.
Shortly after that they started to produce an online version of their newspaper. WOW how novel!
The NewYork Times failed to Execute now they will be Executed.

Ask Slashdot: Getting Exchange and SQL Experience?
You have a CCNA and you are only getting paid 30k? UH I hate to tell you this but you should be in the 60k Range. If you are not MOVE to where the jobs are.
You are exactly right you are getting paid peanuts. Let me impart my IT wisdom upon you. You work 40 hours a week and they pay you for 40 hours a week.
That is called an even. You worked you got paid.
Don't waste your life at a company who doesn't value your talents. Sure money isn't everything but make sure you are getting maximum benefit for your output.
Don't work at companies who don't upgrade their equipment. You will fall behind and your skills will be less marketable.
Don't work for companies who don't value IT. That's most of them
Don't work for companies who have old tired equipment. You don't want the 2:00am phone calls.
Don't work for companies where you are the entire IT dept. You become the angry IT guy who is still doing Desktop support work for dumb users.
You sir need to move now!
