Evaluating the Harmful Effects of Closed Source Software

SledgeHammerSeb If you believe in freedom, leave me alone... (490 comments)

I'm free to use non-free or free software, and I like it. If you are true believer in freedom, then let me be. I'm smart enough to make the choice and responsible enough to accept the consequences.

Ask Slashdot: Would You Take a Pay Cut To Telecommute?

SledgeHammerSeb Re:Yes (615 comments)

I've been doing this for nearly 10 years. Don't kid yourself about office politics. It can easily become worse when you are not there to monitor the day to day wrangling. Ignorance doesn't make the problem go away.

Is Programming a Lucrative Profession?

SledgeHammerSeb Do what you love and take control (844 comments)

Never ever let anyone tell you what you can or should earn. Your salary is your choice. Do what you love, take control, and don't whine. This approach has worked well for me for the past 30 years. I've survived more than a few industry changes over that time.

SledgeHammerSeb Re:This is all FUD (34 comments)
