Ask Slashdot: How Do I Make a High-Spec PC Waterproof?

Pete Venkman I Don't Get It (202 comments)

This sounds like you are either too lazy or not qualified for this job. My advice is to find someone who installs this kind of thing professionally. You aren't going to impress your boss or anyone else when this fucks up due to you half-assing it based off what someone from /. told you to do.

What To Expect With Windows 9

Pete Venkman Two Words: (545 comments)

Missed opportunity. Windows 8 tried to tell users what they were supposed to want. 9 would be a good chance to give users what they actually want (hint: a usable desktop that 'just works' goes a long way)

Pete Venkman Coming from Methane (303 comments)

Couldn't the CCl4 be resulting from radical chlorination in the upper atmosphere? There is certainly enough UV light available.

35% of American Adults Have Debt 'In Collections'

Pete Venkman Health Insurance (570 comments)

I've had two doctors' offices try to turn my account over to collections. Both times it was because there was a problem with the insurance billing. I have health insurance but it doesn't help me any if there's a problem at the point of data entry. If a billing code is wrong, insurance won't pay. Both times I called the doctors' offices, spoke with the business managers, and told them I wouldn't pay until insurance did. Insurance won't pay to collections, so it magically got fixed. I'm sure I'm not the only person this happens to.

What's Your STEM Degree Worth?

Pete Venkman Re:I have a BS in Chemistry (148 comments)

My chemistry degree got me in as a process engineer in specialty chemicals manufacturing. My starting pay wasn't as high as an engineer's, but it was definitely more than what my friends with biology degrees were making. And after a few years of experience, I've caught up to the engineers in pay range.

Wrong Number: Why Phone Companies Overcharge For Data

Pete Venkman Re:Carriers are businesses (105 comments)

If a business only charges actual cost for a product, they cannot make a profit. I want some companies to earn a profit, especially if I'm a stakeholder. If we're lucky, we have jobs (and paychecks) that are a result of some company making a profit. No, I'm not talking about hookers-and-blow-for-everybody kind of profit, either.
