U.S. Government: Sorry, We're Closed

militiaMan Keep it closed forever (1532 comments)

I can only hope that it never reopens. Raping the poor with social programs is just mob rule and not a real government.

How Companies Are Preparing For the IT Workforce Exodus

militiaMan Re:Glut of IT workers? (248 comments)

Half of BSCS change careers in less than 2 years after graduating. That would make the unemployment rate more like 50%.

Electrical Engineer Unemployment Soars; Software Developers' Rate Drops to 2.2%

militiaMan Re:The current bubble is a software bubble (419 comments)

They are pretty much the same thing at the end of the day. Lets say you have a preacher that makes claims to heal people, but is also the best developer in the world. Would you not hire them and ignore the what you obviously would believe to be false claims?

Electrical Engineer Unemployment Soars; Software Developers' Rate Drops to 2.2%

militiaMan Re:The current bubble is a software bubble (419 comments)

I believe in God to. So do me a favor and don't hire me either. He has a degree from a top Uni and you can't put up with him being religious. Just goes to show how bad the economy is.

Real developer don't talk to people. He is not a tech propaganda type. He is a developer. Morons think that a evangelist can code.

Ask Slashdot: What To Do With a Math Degree?

militiaMan Shoot self and respawn (416 comments)

Shoot self and respawn. Not a single STEMS degree has any value. Look at the billionaires. Do they code? No. Can they do complex math? No. Do they even have a degree? 80% don't. Face the truth and give up on a career. Go build a robot army in a unsuspecting country and become a despot. That will put you math skills to work.

Ask Slashdot: Finding an IT Job Without a Computer-Oriented Undergraduate Degree?

militiaMan No Software Development in the U.S. (504 comments)

I have had a BSCS for 12 years and I can tell you right now that not much code is being done in the U.S. for much money. Just look at RentACoder, Elance, xcoder, and other sites. They pay about 2 dollars an hour if your lucky. So it is kind of pointless. Even with 10 years of developing code you won't make much developing software in the U.S. If you want customer support or something then it is possible, but that isn't really tech related.

British CS Majors Doing Badly In the Jobs Market

militiaMan Self Employed Computer Scientist below Poverty 8yr (349 comments)

I could not get a real software development job in the U.S. over the last 10 years. I have a BSCS from a large University and a 3.5 for my major. I scored in the top .001 percent of the math portion of the SATs. I have 140+ IQ. Over the last 10 years I wrote more than 1,200,000 lines of code yet I have had only 2 job offers and both of them did not really want a full time software developer. I worked hard yet I have been below the Federal Poverty Line for 8 of 10 years. So, for some BSCS people jobs are hard to come by. If you must pay for FMLA, Child Tax Credit, House Mortgage Deductions, SS, and other Nazi ponzi schemes for the rich then your even worse off. So don't give me this shit that good CS jobs are common and easily available in the U.S. For years cheap currency markets gobbled up all the jobs, and the Nazi regime pretends otherwise.

Egypt Empire had Austerity. 1.2 Million dead in an empire of a few million. E.U. has Austerity. How many will die? U.S. coming into Austerity?

Indian CEO Says Most US Tech Grads "Unemployable"

militiaMan Re:outsourcing and unemployment (1144 comments)

I can do this and much more, but no one will give me a job.

I have a BSCS and I can't get work for what 7 years now.

Resume: http://allbinary.no-ip.biz/resume.doc

I am close to making a living without a job now, and I may build a robot army and fuck the whole world up in 10 years. Since, I was fucked out of my life by the new Nazi regime.

Computer Science Major Is Cool Again

militiaMan Cool != Homeless and Low Pay (328 comments)

I got a BSCS back in 2000. I have no car, house, or job. Unemployment of Computer Scientist is over 20% since 2002. I had good grades from a real university (University Of North Texas). I have not had but one real CS job as a Systems Software Engineering at Intervoice-Brite. I have had several as in 4 temporary contract or short term positions since. I have several applications with over one million users, but no way to monetize them. Lots of people like to play and use free stuff but they hate paying for it. I can code circles around any new grad I have ever met. Do you really think that you stand a chance against homeless people with 10 years of software development experience and no future. Go get your degree and you will end up as my homeless bitch. Look at the going rate for work at places like rentacoder.com and you will see it is about $1.20 per hour. Can you live on $1.20 like people can in India and China. I didn't think so.

High Tech Misery In China

militiaMan They have better jobs than I do (876 comments)

I have a BSCS. I can't make what they are making in buying power. .65 in China == $6 here in the U.S. plus free housing and food that is another $6 They are making between $10-12 dollars in buying power. That's 10 more than I make in the U.S. I wish they would hire me and I have a Computer Science degree, 6+ years of experience, 6 times on the deans list, 3.5 in my major, and much more.

It seems that Ebay is still in the virtual product business despite thier previous press release. Otherwise why would the delist/cancel software that would destroy the virtual goods market."
