Office 2013: Microsoft Cloud Era Begins In Earnest

araczynski yay (241 comments)

I loved Office up till version 2010, at which point we (the educational agency I work for) switched to Google Apps for everything. The last 2 years have made me appreciate the "always there exactly as I left it everywhere I access it" of the Google solution. The fact that its free for us (educational agency) didn't hurt one bit either. Re buying all those Microsoft licenses every few years got old. I'm sure Office365 or whatever has a lot of neat stuff, but quite frankly its not free, probably full of bugs (since its new), probably still somehow bloated, and therefore still not worth it in comparison. I'd never go back to office in a million years.

What's the Shelf Life of a Programmer?

araczynski ?HUH? (388 comments)

that's the dumbest thing i've ever heard, especially about programmers. unless your skillset is limited to some ancient unused language, i'd take a 50 year old programmer with real world understanding of architecture and code flow over half a dozen college squirt outs any day.

New Chrome Beta Adds Privacy Controls, Translation Option

araczynski Re:adblock? ADBLOCK!! (enchantments!) (181 comments)

haven't bothered with Chrome since it came out, figuring google would fight tooth and nail to prohibit the blocking functionality, with it being their blood and all, guess they bit their tongue on the issue, for now. haven't heard of adthwart before, but will install flashblock. thanks.

Sci-Fi Writer Considers BioShock's Artistic Merit

araczynski bioshock = yawn (108 comments)

i PERSONALLY found the game rather pretentious and boring. as an avid gamer, all i saw was an FPS with plasmids throw on top to make it appear as, well, not an FPS. it would have made for a good movie, but there were too many holes in the story to even make me want to believe in it.
