Sci-fi Predictions, True and False (Video 2)

houstonbofh Re:These guys seem fairly ill-informed. (27 comments)

Exoskeletons? Forget that we're actually having them let the paralyzed walk, we'll just talk about Boston Dymanics BigDog instead of ReWalk or other technologies. Heck, we covered package-loading exoskeletons here in the last few months.

And people bitch about Slashdot being behind the curve... :)

Ask Slashdot: Finding a Job After Completing Computer Science Ph.D?

houstonbofh Re:overqualified (471 comments)

I read a similar story in the Microsoft CompTIA Security+ guidebook. Tthe guy outsourced his five remote jobs to people in China. He got caught when a security specialist for one company conducted an audit and noticed that the VPN token was logging in from China. Opps... He kissed five paychecks goodbye.

What an idiot. He should have had the subs loging in from a system in his home office. :)

There are problems with systemd but clueless detractors like you are just embarrassing yourselves.

I'm unclear on the udev hatred that has arisen with systemctl.

Once systemd became a hard dependency. I can see why it might be nice, but it is a bit early to tie in so tightly.
