"We have no way to efficiently compute the sounds of water splashing, paper crumpling, hands clapping, wind in trees or a wine glass dropped onto the floor."
I've never thought about the concepts behind creating sound based on the physics of a simulated object." Link to Original Source top

Per TFA: "Georgia's president said Friday that his country is under attack by Russian tanks and warplanes, and he accused Russia of targeting civilians as tensions over the breakaway Georgian region of South Ossetia appeared to boil over into full-blown conflict."

The jobs are in Bellevue, WA, which is literally separted from Redmond (Redwest Campus) by a street right in front of Microsoft (NE 148th) and also in Portland, OR." top
c0d3r writes "I'm curious to know what other peoples thoughts are on the differences between working for big companies, small shops or being self employed as a consultant as a software engineer. Personally, I am sick of working with major companies due to the corporate politics BS. I think I enjoyed working with pre-ipo's the best, and they offered the best hope of making a bunch of money on the options. Currently I'm pretty happy at a small shop as one of 2 developers where we do very little and go home early every day." top
