Zoho Don't Need No Stinking Ph.D. Programmers

pwfffff Re:forget about it.. ! (612 comments)

I'm glad we have colleges to guard this secret knowledge. Otherwise somebody might write books about data structures, and then POOR PEOPLE might read them.

Why do you assume that because you need to utilize a giant institution and multitudes of teachers, everyone else does too? Find me something you learned in college that isn't in a publicly available book. Hell, find me something you learned in college that isn't on goddamn Wikipedia.

Zoho Don't Need No Stinking Ph.D. Programmers

pwfffff Re:Programming is a craft (612 comments)

"I want the BS/BA because it shows me you can complete something and can deal with crap you don't like because I'm paying you to do it."

Funny... I dropped out of college because I was paying THEM to allow me to complete their bullshit busywork. What kind of college grads are you hiring that were paid to go to college? And what kind of shop are you running where you assign unnecessary crap?

Zoho Don't Need No Stinking Ph.D. Programmers

pwfffff Re:I spot a slight flaw (612 comments)

Strange. You'd think that if this knowledge was so important then it wouldn't be locked away exclusively in college libraries.

I mean, just imagine a world where you could transmit information easily and freely. I envision a future where I'd be able to use some sort of computing machine to retrieve copies of the same books used in formal education. Poor old me probably wouldn't be able to understand it, though... not without a strict schedule and several instructors, anyways. I mean, who would be able to do such a thing?

I guess it's for the best that nobody will ever be able to attain knowledge outside of college. It's just such a shame that I'll never be able to access any kind of information on Computer Science theory, ever.

pwfffff Re:Yay for common sense (612 comments)

Really? The people who needed to pay vast sums of money to a large institution in order to know the same things as the kids who played on the computer too much are the ones keeping up with the learning on their own? I call bullshit.

Doctors Skirt FDA To Heal Patients With Stem Cells

pwfffff Re:No Surgery Required? (394 comments)

usage Although transitive sense 2 of flaunt undoubtedly arose from confusion with flout, the contexts in which it appears cannot be called substandard . If you use it, however, you should be aware that many people will consider it a mistake.

Doctors Skirt FDA To Heal Patients With Stem Cells

pwfffff Re:No Surgery Required? (394 comments)

It has to do with the way they copy your stem cells, I believe. Every copy raises the risk of an error in the DNA being made into a new stem cell. I don't know how it would increase the cancer rate more than if you just waited for the stem cells to grow on their own, but that's the argument I've heard.

Nexus One First Phone Linus Torvalds "Doesn't Hate"

pwfffff Re:So he uses the phone for GPS While Driving? (308 comments)

Because Nokia makes standalone GPS devices, that was the current topic of conversation, you didn't explicitly mention their phones (only the company), and I can't read minds... exactly?

If you think being unable to read minds is convenient you have a strange thought process indeed.

pwfffff Re:So he uses the phone for GPS While Driving? (308 comments)

I think you mean standalone GPS doesn't make phonecalls, surf the web, fit in your pocket, and follow you everywhere... making it much worse than a Nexus One.

You people and your philosophy of having a hundred gadgets that do one thing well were cute back when we couldn't actually cram it all on one device, but now that we pretty much can, what's your excuse?

Code Review of Doom For the iPhone

pwfffff Re:Doom was groundbreaking in ATMOSPHERICS (161 comments)

Oh, and you can't say jack shit about atmosphere. Have you even played Quake? There were castles, knights, moats, cliffs, lava pits, gates, moving floors, stained glass windows, bridges, crypts, tombstones, and even a motherfucking dopefish.

Code Review of Doom For the iPhone

pwfffff Re:Doom was groundbreaking in ATMOSPHERICS (161 comments)

WTF are you smoking?

Doom:

          Zombieman
        Shotgun guy
        Imp
        Demon
        Spectre
        Cacodemon
        Lost soul
        Baron of Hell
        Cyberdemon
  Spiderdemon

Quake:

Rottweilers
Grunts
Enforcers
Knights
Death Knights
Rotfish
Zombies
Scrag
Ogres
Spawn
Fiends
Vores
Shamblers
Chthon
Shub-Niggurat

Quake also had fighting monsters. It became part of my strategy in the later levels. Only monsters of different types would attack each other though. It was real fun dodging ogre grenades and making them explode on a shambler, who would then ignore me and shoot lightning at my ogre buddy.

Quake 2 sucked.
