Steve Jobs' First Boss: 'Very Few Companies Would Hire Steve, Even Today'

Quiet_Desperation Re:In all fairness with this economy. (420 comments)

The *orange* shag carpet. Right next to the purple velvet drapes and inscrutable chrome and avacado objects of indeterminate purpose.

See the book "Interior Desecrations" by James Lileks for the whole, horrific story.

Steve Jobs' First Boss: 'Very Few Companies Would Hire Steve, Even Today'

Quiet_Desperation Re:In all fairness with this economy. (420 comments)

From the articles about the Bizarro universe that seems to exist inside HR departments in the tech world, my not being very good at the whole people networking thing, and too many tales of rampant ageism, there has to be a better way to do this. Why is there not a better system for connecting employees to jobs other than happening to know someone somewhere?

I'm just keeping my head down and trying to retire as early as possible.

They have evolved 4D.

You just can't see them.

They can see you, though.

They watch.

A lot.

Quiet_Desperation Re:Anyone else? (388 comments)

I feel that way all the time these days. I read the news, and I don't feel like I'm even the same species as anyone else anymore.

EU To Vote On Proposal That Could Ban All Online Pornography

Quiet_Desperation Re:Impossible to enforce (853 comments)

We much eliminate the patriarchal something rape culture of the something something semprini something check your privilege something ponies. Or something like that. It's hard to follow sometimes.

I think it boils down to staunchly fighting ageism, racism and sexism by hating old, white males.

Ah, Slashdot, where molehills become mountains.

Literally in this case. Yosemite? El Capitan or Half Dome?

SimCity 5: How Not To Design a Single Player Game

Quiet_Desperation Re:EA at it again (569 comments)

How about developing emotional maturity beyond the need to do violence over trivial bullshit, and the intellectual ability to grasp it's just a game and there's a billion other things to go do? The real pussies are the ones who get all worked up into a lather in the first place.

SimCity 5: How Not To Design a Single Player Game

Quiet_Desperation Re:EA at it again (569 comments)

Well for one thing it denies them a highly-anticipated game. Or ruins it perhaps.

But it's ultimately just a game. I loved SimCity. When I heard the next one was online, I shrugged and moved on.

Would you feel impacted if they ruined the upcoming Hobbit films?

No.

Would you feel impacted if they made the Super Bowl pay-per-view?

No.

Would you feel impacted if Slashdot decided to cover celebrity gossip instead of nerd news?

No.

You can choose not to participate in any of the above. Doesn't mean it won't ruin your day.

Then maybe people need wider tastes/interests, along with a sense of perspective and more emotional maturity, if these singular things can ruin their whole day.

Well, that raises the question of the "who controls the robots" question, doesn't it?.

Derek Khanna Answers Your Questions

Quiet_Desperation Re:You blew it. (167 comments)

It's really pathetic. People like the AC cannot see individuals. They simply can't. To them, Khanna was fired but "THE PARTY" and not one politician like actually happened. I think they are neurologically incapable of it, like how some people can't recognize faces.

The geekverse has become a complete intellectual wasteland riddled with batshit ideology and absolutely no critical thinking at all.

Quiet_Desperation Re:Wait, What? (167 comments)

Stick to weeding out trolls.

eldavojohn goes off the rails in his first sentence. Khanna was not fired by "the Republican Party." He was fired by *one* guy at the request of a handful of others. That's what you want to give A+ to? Don't ever go into teaching, please.

Overall the Republicans are still more conservative, so a conservative like Khanna will have the best luck working within the GOP, perhaps with, you know, one of the *thousands* of others who didn't fire him.

Mass Effect is digital porn? What what WHAT?!

Quiet_Desperation Quiet_Desperation writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Quiet_Desperation (858215) writes "Brave townhall.com commentator and paragon of justice Kevin McCullough comes out swinging against that evil renegade of the video gaming underword, Mass Effect. Having actually played and completed the game, I know the sex scene in Mass Effect is about 20 to 30 seconds long and is PG-13 or maybe an R. Mr. McCullough, Seeker Of Truth that he is, somehow expands that scene into a nonstop humpfest of alien degradation that would make Caligula weep and the Marquis de Sade hide under his mother's skirts.

But seriously, it's obvious that McCullogh have never even seen the box for the game much less played it. He's just another ideological pinhead servicing a certain demographic of nitwits. Hey conservatives: you wonder why your power may be waning? You want to know what you are becoming the laughing stock of the multiverse? It's articles like this that so distort and defraud reality that, even given the ideological considerations, you have to questions the man's sanity. Or he's just seeking page hits, which isn't any better, really.

Anywho, I'm heading back to finish Blue Dragon. I hear near the end Lady Zola ties up Marumaro, takes a dump on his face and then violates him for hours with a spiked strap-on (imbued with a Flarus spell, of course). The faster you tap the "A" button, the more the little bastard gets his due! Woot!"
