2013 H-1B Visa Supply Nearly Exhausted

mir Re:Hire the unemployed (428 comments)

Also, Americans often have huge student loans to pay back. I don't know about Indians, who get the vast majority of H1-Bs, but at least Europeans often got free, or very cheap, education, so are able to work for less.

So to simplify things only slightly, H1-B is a scheme for US companies to siphon out foreign tax money. Nice!

Linux Needs More Haters

mir Re:Or perhaps... (617 comments)

Wasn't there a story a few month back about a guy, a normal guy, some French medic IIRC, that wrote drivers for a few hundred, or thousand, who's counting, webcams? He just wanted to get his webcam to work but ended up writing a framework and churning out driver after after driver. Try doing this on OS X (all webcams come with Windows drivers, so no one has to write them of course).
Oh, what is K3B but a front end to a bunch of commad line tools?

Cheers

Apple's Mac OS X update breaks Perl

mir mir writes  |  more than 5 years ago

mir writes "It looks like if you use CPAN to install modules, Apple's latest security update might just have broken your Perl.

According to Tatsuhiko Miyagawa: "The Security Update brings (old) IO.bundle with version 1.22 but your IO.pm has been updated to the latest 1.23 on CPAN shell. (But hey, 1.23 was released in 2006...Why do you bring that ancient version back, Apple!?)"."
