The Technologies Changing What It Means To Be a Programmer

cheekyboy Re:Another Silver Bullet? I don't think so... (291 comments)

The biggest problem is either too vague requirements by business or wrong requirements - thus wasting your time on things that are never used.

Or stupid requirements, product X does Y by magic.

The Technologies Changing What It Means To Be a Programmer

cheekyboy Re:Yes, no, maybe, potato salad (291 comments)

Managers how fire staff, then outsource work to their own shell company at 3x the hourly rates to pocket their own wallet are FRAUDSTERS.

Assembly is nothing more than the core basics of a language, maths on values, moving numbers, function calls, branch on logic. Everything else is just a combination of the basics, but re-useable in more apps/libs/frameworks.

Infact, everything comes down to just an conditional ADD instruction.

What it all comes down to is this, can you or your team finish the project, before a competitor, so you can seal the deal and make the cash.

Emails Show Feds Asking Florida Cops To Deceive Judges About Surveillance Tech

cheekyboy people are the problem. (251 comments)

And who works for the govt, your average joe fat pack in an office.

Who approves of the laws and pushes them? Your employed cops and lawyers.

Too many people with high qualifications and so called smarts are just "Doing their job" like the S.S. in Germany did.

Time to say, FU boss, quit, or dont even go applying for govt jobs, leaving it empty for foreigners (who came from bad regime govts and are use to oppression, who then go on creating more of it)

cheekyboy Re:No different than asking... (201 comments)

especially if the production process between the two is identical, and the only difference is the type of grape or, the scale of production vs small acreage of land for a special wine with limited supply, thus artificial high price, which is made in just the same way as a $10 wine.
