Tech People Making $100k a Year On the Rise, Again

jimmyfrank Re:Sounds about right (193 comments)

I've been in a bit longer, 20 years and my rates range between 85-125/hr depending on the gig. I'm still coding though but that's by choice :)

The New 'One Microsoft' Is Finally Poised For the Future

jimmyfrank Re:Good for devs. (270 comments)

I've never been afraid to adopt a MS tech. Silverlight still works fine and it's easy to convert a SL app to XAML/Windows. WCF works fine still and it's not that difficult to port that stuff over to WebAPI or ServiceStack. Maybe you're rather not have innovation.

jimmyfrank Re:Poised for the past (270 comments)

The C# compiler was open sourced, among other projects. That's a change so I guess you're wrong :(

So you don't want a kb short cut or to close a window with a mouse? I'm confused.

jimmyfrank Re:huh (294 comments)

You mean for modern apps right? The 'x' never went anywhere for regular Win apps. The 'x' is on modern apps now too. Thanks Microsoft.

Windows 8.1 Update Released, With Improvements For Non-Touch Hardware

jimmyfrank Re:The new start screen is great (294 comments)

"I have only seen Win8 once, and was unable to help the owner of the laptop it was on in do anything at all." So you're not a tech person then, can't use google? My Dad is computer illiterate and upgrade to W8 from W7 without any help. How do people survive on Max OSX without a start menu? I think people like to complain about nothing.

Windows 8.1 Update Released, With Improvements For Non-Touch Hardware

jimmyfrank Re:The new start screen is great (294 comments)

Maybe, like I said, I never used it. Mac OSX doesn't have it and I of course don't use it there. My kids seems to do fine on both Win 8 and Mac OSX so I'm not sure what the problem is.

Windows 8.1 Update Released, With Improvements For Non-Touch Hardware

jimmyfrank Re:The new start screen is great (294 comments)

I do development on Android, iOS, and WP/RT. I do the same on Mac OSX, either use the launcher at the bottom or apple key + space bar and start typing. I'm a shill for both operating systems.

Windows 8.1 Update Released, With Improvements For Non-Touch Hardware

jimmyfrank huh (294 comments)

So you didn't slide your mouse around to close windows in Win7? Ever use Alt-F4? Win8 has better keyboard shortcuts than the previous OS's but you'd have to spend 2 mins learning something I guess.

Windows 8.1 Update Released, With Improvements For Non-Touch Hardware

jimmyfrank The new start screen is great (294 comments)

But I never used it or the start menu. I always though the start menu was for people that liked to be inefficient. I pin stuff I use a lot to the task bar and for other stuff, Win key, type a few chars. And now I pin those to the start screen but its still faster to Win key, type a few chars. Win 8 is fine, better than Win 7, and miles better than XP. It's the "in thing" to complain about MS so it doesn't matter if the OS is good or not.

Microsoft YouTube App Strips Ads; Adds Download

jimmyfrank Re:Data Scraping (381 comments)

It would be to bad if WP went away, I like mine a lot and it's a blast to develop for. If WP goes away I'm going back to a flip phone.
