jQuery.com Compromised To Serve Malware

pooh666 Re:Thats not good. (83 comments)

yep, and the low visibility of your one single site means that any exploit on your version of jquery will be much more likely to go unnoticed. Not to mention the not RTFA part about it not affecting hosted versions.

Could Tech Have Stopped ISIS From Using Our Own Heavy Weapons Against Us?

pooh666 Re:Here's an idea (448 comments)

So we invaded for the children? Or so that Iran could turn their attention away from their most mortal enemy? It was never the U.S. until maybe now.

I like the mention of West Point. Good reminder that this is institutional, not just one administration.

Akamai Warns: Linux Systems Infiltrated and Controlled In a DDoS Botnet

pooh666 Re:Hmmm (230 comments)

This comparison is pointless and simply minded or just a troll. Security is about layers, so who really cares, one layer or another always needs attention, sanity, and in particluar maintenance. The parent had good points, but still, again, who really cares about out of the box? No one who should have a job setting up servers. Out of the box my bricked Nintendo is very secure. Or should we say OpenBSD for all cases? No of course not.

'Just Let Me Code!'

pooh666 Re:Documentation (372 comments)

It is too bad you anon cowarded this, but I will reply anyway. Your lib sounds fantastic, I wish it had Windows support. I have been mainly looking for a replacement for mod_perl/mod_proxy combination. Re node, I notice they have a lib just to deal with the single thread issue of one fatal error taking down the whole server, and the caution on CPU intensive opperations seems to mean you have to create some extra complexity in offloading that, because to me, even parsing a big block of json could be considered in that realm.. So the end results is that node is for passing small messages around really fast and not doing much with them, but we have enough chat severs already...

'Just Let Me Code!'

pooh666 Documentation (372 comments)

I don't really follow what this guy is talking about in general. But one thing I have noticed is that documentation quality on new tools/APIs has steadily gone downhill. For example, I am really excited about node.js, but on the page proper, their docs just dump some bits of info on standard functions. That ends up making learning something new, really fast, more difficult than it used to be because you have to go to 3rd party sources, they may be full of crap, way out of date or both. It is one thing to have to put in your time to get comfortable with something new, but it is another to have to act like you are hacking a black box to learn it.

Geographic Segregation By Education

pooh666 Re:Self-taught experts with holes in their knowled (230 comments)

What I want to know, why are people modding up such an opinionated piece of drivel from an anon coward? This so called debate is old and sad. People choose to learn what they think is important. Most employers seem to think getting the work done FAST and not blowing things up is important. I have worked for employers for 20 years now and taught myself what I needed to know. I also went to school and took calc, chem, physics, have read constantly for my whole life, whatever, it didn't have a damn thing to do with what I work on now or my approach to learning. That started from when I was young, not college. So this talk of making a big distinction between those who go to college/university and those who do not, is "uneducated" and a false start to any conversation.

Normal Humans Effectively Excluded From Developing Software

pooh666 Crazy rant full of BS except for one thing (608 comments)

"New technologies, once exciting for the sake of newness, now seem like hassles. I'm less and less tolerant of hokey marketing filled with superlatives. I value stability and clarity."

I will mod that one way up.

Teaching College Is No Longer a Middle Class Job

pooh666 I just want to know (538 comments)

Where does the money go? Not generalizations, but accounts. If research is paid for by outsiders, if sports pay for itself, then where is this ever growing cost of education coming from?

Starbucks Offers Workers 2 Years of Free College

pooh666 Re:In civilized countries... (169 comments)

Are you sure you didn't post that as anon so you could make your point? Can you prove you didn't? What was that point again? I think it is the GOP who likes to call anyone who as a different opinion, a "Bigot" On the thoughtful post from bobbied, the U.S. does seem to do this a lot. I think the U.S. almost has an overkill factor in terms of "security" as a result. What is it something like 60 countries we have some form of military assistance agreement with? I don't think you have to be a so called conservative to look at the money being spent and wondering a little at what else that could have purchased. There is no question though, Military power is followed by economic opportunity, so that calculation is going to be a pretty complex one, not just dollars for missile system A in exchange for infrastructure program B.
