Richard Remer Re: Another major problem. (130 comments)

Or perhaps there are a lot of washed up CS grads on linked in who don't mention it because they've moved to a different career where they can be more useful.

Be True To Your CS School: LinkedIn Ranks US Schools For Job-Seeking Programmers

Richard Remer Re: Missing the point (130 comments)

It's absolutely true - depending on your location. In Cali, yes, you can have a successful career without an education. In the industrial Midwest, not so much. It's still possible, but lacking a degree really holds you back from big companies. And outside of startup friendly places like Austin and CA, big companies is where the jobs are.

News Aggregator Fark Adds Misogyny Ban

Richard Remer Re: Sigh (748 comments)

I've been around Slashdot since the 90s and I think you're full of shit. Discourse is just as bad now as it has always been. Shit, it's been years since I came upon a GNAA link.

Microsoft Considered Renaming Internet Explorer To Escape Its Reputation

Richard Remer Re: question: does IE support adblock and noscript (426 comments)

I don't understand why I as a web developer have any use for IE. I don't target the Ice Weasel or Maxthon browsers, I target the W3C standard. Why would I care about IE as a web developer? I'm seriously asking? What is MS's argument for devs here?

Companies That Don't Understand Engineers Don't Respect Engineers

Richard Remer Re: Real people just don't like dealing with Hip (371 comments)

Sure, but the vast majority of engineers are never seen by anyone but their coworkers. If you feel it impacts your business you set a dress code. Under no circumstance is it productive or profitable to engage in passive aggressive disdain from people jealous of engineers in t shirts.

Companies That Don't Understand Engineers Don't Respect Engineers

Richard Remer Re: Lots of technical decisions affect the busines (371 comments)

So one set of people is concerned with making good products that meet a client's needs while the other is concerned with moving numbers around on paper to pretend they are producing something of value. You can get rid of one of these groups of people and still have a successful profitable company. Guess which one?

Companies That Don't Understand Engineers Don't Respect Engineers

Richard Remer Re: Possibly the best post I've read in here for y (371 comments)

That would imply that everyone wants to work less. Smart people should do what they love because they can. Many will do it for 60 hours a week because they want to.

Companies That Don't Understand Engineers Don't Respect Engineers

Richard Remer Re: Business decisions (371 comments)

This happens just as often from the other side. Decision makers like to make decisions and they will do so regardless of how well they understand the problem. Instead they bring vague contradictory language to the engineers and expect them to sort out what the business ACTUALLY needs to make the decision maker look good. Managers are good at communicating their successes and often little else.

Richard Remer Re: Real people just don't like dealing with Hipst (371 comments)

Is it really immature to wear a t shirt or is it more immature to let someone tell you how to dress? If someone can't decide what to wear, I certainly don't want them making important decisions about business.

Predicting a Future Free of Dollar Bills

Richard Remer Re: Why? (753 comments)

It would also imply the US is in control of its economy. The fed is in control of the American economy and would never do something so self destructive.

Ask Slashdot: Joining a Startup As an Older Programmer?

Richard Remer Re: You're supposed to be founding startups (274 comments)

That's pretty absurd. There is very little in common between software development and company development. You seem to postulate that company building is a more advanced form of development that software development grows into naturally. That's a pretty ridiculous assertion.
