naris Re:I agree (512 comments)

80K in a state where the cost of living is 40K/year is not comparable to 80K in a state where the cost of living is >120K/year.

Senator Who Calls STEM Shortage a Hoax Appointed To Head Immigration

naris Re:You see that too? (512 comments)

Except that H1B visa holders are not eligible to vote. Neither are any other immigrants until they obtain citizenship, which takes longer than most politicians attention spans.

Should Disney Require Its Employees To Be Vaccinated?

naris Re:Yes. (663 comments)

Recreational pot use of the guy sweeping the floor, is probably not an issue. But for the guy controlling the ride or driving the bus, it is most definitely an issue!

naris Re:Yes. (663 comments)

So, when you get on a train, bus, amusement park ride and get injured or killed because the driver or operator is high and didn't pay attention to what they were doing is OK with you?

Obama Proposes 2 Years of Free Community College

naris Re:Free? (703 comments)

Yes, just like High-School, Middle School, Elementary School... Except that you have to get good grades to go on to Community College unless you foot the bill yourself. This would be a very good thing.

Ask Slashdot: High-Performance Laptop That Doesn't Overheat?

naris Re:VM? (325 comments)

There is no such thing as a high performance VM solution! You use VMs to share (chop up) a higher performance machine into several low performance VMs among multiple users or to run several server applications with low CPU requirements.

Google Suggests Separating Students With 'Some CS Knowledge' From Novices

naris Re:PC Failure? (307 comments)

I don't think they should be called native American at all. They immigrated from Asia, as did others, some from Europe, some from Africa etc.

Well, if you are going to count people who "immigrated" to America 10K or more years ago as not being native, you might as well call everyone African as that where Homo sapiens originated!

Ask Slashdot: Can a Felon Work In IT?

naris Re:America, land of the free... (720 comments)

Why do you assume he committed a violent crime?

Assuming it's a violent crime is definitely a bad assumption. It could be something non-violent such as theft, which would be a huge disincentive for an IT Department. However, everything is all speculation other than he committed some kind of felony in his misguided youth, which is a very broad category.
