gangien Re:Local attractions are great too! (18 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.

Bitcoin Exchange CEO Charlie Shrem Arrested On Money Laundering Charge

gangien Re:I was wondering when that would happen (330 comments)

There is quite a difference between something being counter intuitive and being bullshit.

And maybe one day you'll learn having a good bullshit detector will get you through so much of life.

Bitcoin Exchange CEO Charlie Shrem Arrested On Money Laundering Charge

gangien Re:I was wondering when that would happen (330 comments)

Bitcoin can not be stopped.

Is this where I'm supposed to laugh?

Will bitcoin last? I have zero clue. But the amount of absolutes I see used by people describing bitcoin and how it works, makes my bullshit detector go off.

Ask Slashdot: How Can I Improve My Memory For Study?

gangien Re:Sleep study (384 comments)

While I understand your point, the whole "why remember something I can look up in a book" thing.

Being able to remember stuff is incredibly useful. From simply remembering a schedule (which can be complicated) to remembering how you solved another problem.

gangien Re:How do we get Congress to sign up? (365 comments)

despite what so much of /. and the internet seems to think, there's a difference between a theory that we evolved from monkeys and whether organisms evolve. He has quite clearly stated his stance.
