Switching From Sitting To Standing At Your Desk

oh_my_080980980 Re:wait what ? (310 comments)

Thank you! No one wants to look at the actual problem - inactivity. You need to move around. But the problem is you will cut into productivity because that means people need to be away from their desks. This is nothing more than an attempt at a silver bullet. It won't fix the problem but it will give the appearance that they're doing something.

Michael Bloomberg: You Can't Teach a Coal Miner To Code

oh_my_080980980 Re:No. (578 comments)

Yes you are very dumb. The point is that it's unreasonable to believe that people who have spent their lifetime working in a particular field are going to suddenly become computer programmers. The solution to unemployment is not teaching someone to code. By the way these are the same companies that want more H1B Visas so they can import more foreign workers. So much for teaching to code only to not offer them a job because some guy from India is doing it.

Those white collar, knowledge worker jobs are being outsourced too. You think it's any easier retraining these educated people?

Michael Bloomberg: You Can't Teach a Coal Miner To Code

"A better way to state the question: half the population has sub-median intelligence."

This is based on what exactly? Hate to break it too you but those "intelligent" jobs, aka tech jobs, are going overseas or people from India and China are being brought here to perform. So what exactly do you tell the above-median intelligent person who has a cs degree or a computer engineering degree to do? Go back and get another degree?
FYI building trades are consider manual or blue collar jobs. Those are not going away.

Double Take: Condoleezza Rice As Dropbox's Newest Board Member

oh_my_080980980 Re:Low even for Slashdot (313 comments)

I see so you want the policy to be in place so that you can be outraged that it happened instead of preventing it from happening.

I see the hamster stopped running in it's wheel.

Double Take: Condoleezza Rice As Dropbox's Newest Board Member

oh_my_080980980 Re:Oh why not? (313 comments)

Really?

She was intimately involved in the decision to go to war with Iraq and spoke publicly in support of it.

She was an integral part of the Bush administration's campaign of lies surrounding the war, working to further public support of the war by lying about Iraq's non-existent weapons of mass destruction.

Rice played a central role in affirming the "legality" of the Bush administration's torture program.

Rice not only spoke in favor of the Bush administration's warrantless wiretap program and expansive domestic surveillance program, she authorized the warrantless wiretap of UN Security Council members.

But you keep thinking that a extremely brilliant and accomplished individual, having obtained her Masters degree at age 20, isn't smart enough to ask the right questions or able to go toe to toe with Cheney or Rumsfeld....

Google: Teach Girls Coding, Get $2,500; Teach Boys, Get $0

oh_my_080980980 Wow (673 comments)

They are saying that computer programming equal computer science and people focus on the gender part? Really? That's hardly the issue. The point is Google and other corporations are not interested in Computer Science and are only interested promoting people to become code monkeys. That's the real issue. They don't care about education. They want a cheap workforce.

Ask Slashdot: Which NoSQL Database For New Project?

oh_my_080980980 Re:Please specify a better scenario (272 comments)

Why don't I believe you. If you can spin this up with a SQL database in under an hour, then you have your answer. The fact that you repeat "scalability" and "reporting" leads me to believe you do not understand what databases, in particular SQL databases, can do.

oh_my_080980980 Re:Do you need a database? (272 comments)

Which is why he might as well use a flat file. If he has structure, then an RDMS is what he should use. If he's not going to bother to organize the information, then a flat file would be perfect because all you are after is junk anyways.
