Gunmen Kill 12, Wound 7 At French Magazine HQ

gangien Re:Let's ban all guns! (1350 comments)

actually DOES result in significantly less gun violence.

That is true.

But it doens't result in less violent crime. So you're just as likely to be murdered.

Also didn't impact suicide rates at all.

So they changed the tools and circumstances around crimes, not the actual crimes. So they lost freedom and gained no security.

Red Hat Engineer Improves Math Performance of Glibc

gangien Re:C versus Assembly Language (226 comments)

really nothing rare about it? maybe in your line of work. But since we're just talking general programming here, it's quite rare.

Red Hat Engineer Improves Math Performance of Glibc

gangien Re:C versus Assembly Language (226 comments)

It may, but it's pretty rare that it's worth it and it also increases the cost of maintaining. Though a function in glibc, might be an exception.

gangien Re:Local attractions are great too! (21 comments)

FYI if anyone is curious, it's about an hour and a half drive from Bellingham, WA to redmond (assuming decent traffic and driving slow enough to not get pulled over). About the same to get into vancouver BC.. but that's crossing the border so..

Ask Slashdot: IT Career Path After 35?

gangien Re:Yes (376 comments)

I've worked with more than a few developers over 50. I don't really see age discrimination as much of a thing. Maybe your salary will plateau but, people seem to still be willing to hire older devs. Maybe not facebook or google, but that's their problem.

Silicon Valley Doesn't Have an Attitude Problem, OK?

gangien Re: Silicon Valley is overrated (262 comments)

- In most all states, you can carry a 'deadly weapon', sometimes openly, sometimes concealed. Get over it. The crime rate of CCW holders is the same as the police.
- No matter what school you send your kids too, there will be some dumbshit taught to them. learn to be a decent parent.
- they are anti abortion, not family planning. get over yourself.

Facebook Seeks Devs To Make Linux Network Stack As Good As FreeBSD's

gangien Re:This does pose the question: (195 comments)

I interviewed there, and there and had a dude with under a year of experience out of college interview me. and of course, give a horrible interview. I'm pretty sure that's the reason I didn't get the offer (of course who knows, maybe other reasons). they have this idea that an engineer is an engineer, which I think is good. to an extent, but in the end it's a bullshit philosophy.

You've Got Male: Amazon's Growth Impacting Seattle Dating Scene

gangien Re:Which one? (315 comments)

As a single male living around seattle. Seattle obviously.

- San Fran/cali drivers are are assholes
- In seattle, you can live in downtown and walk everywhere, or still have a decent commute in the suburbs. outside of downtown, Seattle has plenty of parking. In Downtown Seattle, it's sitll better than San Fran.
- Housing prices. Seattle's not cheap, but it's that high compared to other larger metropolitan areas.
- San Fran gets better points on weather.

Basically, Seattle > San Fran.
QED.
