Putting a MacBook Pro In the Oven To Fix It

ayesnymous Re:Class Action Lawsuit Filed (304 comments)

http://www.macrumors.com/2014/... It's a problem for 10s of 1000s of MacBook Pro users who purchased in 2011

Except the class action lawsuit only applies to a small percentage of users who have the problem - those in CA and FL. Representatives from other states were not found.

North Korea Denies Responsibility for Sony Attack, Warns Against Retaliation

ayesnymous Re:And OJ offers a reward to find the real killer (236 comments)

You have a point, but it was either Stuxnet or a nuclear strike by Israel. Given those two options, I think we're all better off with Stuxnet.

Iran is close enough to Israel that they couldn't be sure the radiation from a nuclear strike wouldn't spread back to Israel.

Want To Work For a Cool Tech Company? Hone Your Social Skills

ayesnymous Re:I'll never be employed (139 comments)

having people skills can actually make you a stand out that will get promoted and allow you to progress in your career.

That's what people here DON'T want. They don't want to be promoted. They want to stay with coding forever.

Ask Slashdot: IT Career Path After 35?

ayesnymous Re:Oh my god, you're actually serious??? (376 comments)

My IT career didn't even *start* until I was 32 or 33, it's 20 years later now... and I'm doing just fine, thanks.

But are you a coder or are you a manager? "IT career" can mean many things, including being in management.

Ask Slashdot: IT Career Path After 35?

ayesnymous Re:Yes (376 comments)

A catastrophic health problem can change your plans overnight, at any age. Throw in that the older you get, the more likely it is to happen ... and employers can do the math too.

Not sure what the point of this response is. A catastrophic health problem can happen to anyone, whether they are a coder, in management, etc.

If a standard 1920x1080 monitor is 24-27" nowadays, then a 26.5" 1920x1920 is going to have a much smaller pixel size. Good luck trying to read any text.

American Express Seeks To Swap Card Numbers For Secure Tokens

ayesnymous Some cards already have this - the virtual CC # (130 comments)

Some cards let you create a virtual CC # tied to your credit card and basically set it up for one-time use by putting a dollar limit and expiration date on it. Too bad some cards like Discover actually discontinued it.

The Great IT Hiring He-Said / She-Said

ayesnymous Re:There's a clue shortage (574 comments)

The biggest clue shortage on the hiring side is requiring x years of experience with a tool or product that has only been out for less time than they're demanding. I've lost count of the numbers of times I've seen such asinine job posting requirements.

They want someone who's willing to be a slave. If a technology has only been out for 2 years, but they ask for 4 years of experience with it, then they want to know you were working with that technology for 80 hours/week for 2 years.

Pianist Asks Washington Post To Remove Review Under "Right To Be Forgotten"

ayesnymous Wayback Machine cannot save that article (257 comments)

"Page cannot be crawled or displayed due to robots.txt" What's the point of Wayback Machine if sites can just block it with a robots.txt?
