ThatsDrDangerToYou Clearly.. (154 comments)

Pentagon Reportedly Hushed Up Chemical Weapons Finds In Iraq

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:So confused (376 comments)

And the bush administration, though not bush himself, was pushing the (clearly bogus) nuclear line pretty hard. "Aluminum tubes! Why else would they ever need to buy aluminum tubes?"

Could these tubes be used for the internets traffic?

Fuel Efficiency Numbers Overstate MPG More For Cars With Small Engines

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:metric you insensitive clod! (403 comments)

You're right. In my experience American dicks are bigger, and far more common; you can barely swing super sized soda in the US without hitting a obese dick

*an obese dick.

You're welcome.

Russia Pledges To Go To the Moon

ThatsDrDangerToYou .. but what about the return trip? (197 comments)

Sure, they plan to bring humans to the moon by 2030, but when will they come back? Better read the fine print on those fancy brochures..

Ask Slashdot: Finding a Job After Completing Computer Science Ph.D?

ThatsDrDangerToYou probably doing it wrong (479 comments)

Well, you have to be willing to "shill" for yourself. Use your network--build your network. Come up with a list of companies you would like to work for, focusing on those where your education would be somewhat relevant at least. Use a multi-faceted approach: network, job board search, network, make direct contacts in companies, recruiters, and so on. I found a job a few years ago in the PRINT classified ads. I found my current job via an automated job search agent.

Good luck.

MIT's Cheetah Robot Runs Untethered

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:Asian-only team? (90 comments)

European researchers work at MIT and nobody beats an eye, Asian researchers work at MIT and everybody looses their mind.

One of my favorite (oh sorry, favourite for you spelling challenged Euros :-) .. things about grad school was that our group of friends was from all over the world. I enjoyed being a "minority" white boy.

Extent of Antarctic Sea Ice Reaches Record Levels

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:You know how hot water freezes faster than cold (635 comments)

That has nothing to do with this. But it does demonstrate how fucking clueless your conventional wisdom is.

Everyone who makes a comment about how this "disproves" global warming is a drooling moron.

Thanks for that. I feel better now, but it still doesn't mean that we won't get a flurry (ha ha, snow!) of denier bullshit to follow. Sigh.

Researchers Say Neanderthals Created Cave Art

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:Dumb neanderthals (91 comments)

Which is ironic since from what I've read they not only had bigger brains than most modern humans, but they also contributed a good chunk of DNA to Indo-European peoples...

Yeah, sure, but how many of them published in *peer reviewed* journals? Amateurs.

The Grumpy Programmer has Advice for Young Computer Workers (Video)

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:Incredibly wise advice (120 comments)

So, live your entire life as though you're going to get fired tomorrow. Sounds like real fun.

Well, my advice is to find a decent job doing what you enjoy. Don't just keep a job to run out the clock until you retire. Get good enough to be valuable enough that the company wants to keep you around, and/or find a new business. Or start your own. (Never really done the latter in a serious way, but...)

My current stats: switched jobs too many times, but for at least a couple of those I stayed longer than I should have, only because I had not been there long enough. I'm 50 now, and hope to stay in the game for another 10 years. But guess what? Working at a job with cool toys (try medical devices) and good people. No urge to go into management, for now.

Also, learn to network.

Ask Slashdot: Should You Invest In Documentation, Or UX?

ThatsDrDangerToYou Re:No doc (199 comments)

Exactly. Even as intuitive "interface" as bathroom signs require explanation at least one time, and even as widespread as bathroom signs, they still do not have uniform notation.

I know, right? I have done a lot of work on bathroom signs, but the jerks keep painting over them..
