That's my view. But Guinness Draught is quite popular.

The Science of Stout Beer

rizzo420 Not the same (205 comments)

I can only assume the post is talking solely about stouts like Guinness Draught in a nitro-can that has a widget to release nitrogen. There is more to what that widget does than just give the beer a nice creamy head. It gives the entire beer a different mouthfeel, and that's because of the nitrogen, not carbon dioxide (though the beer does already contain carbon dioxide. So, if they want the same effect, you'll still need a widget (or in the case of the bottled Guinness Draught, the proper mix of the gases). However, nitrogen dulls the flavor of the beer. So the effect this story talks about would not leave the beer the same...

US Banks That Offer Transaction History?

rizzo420 Re:That's the wrong question (359 comments)

The bank has the information, but doesn't store it for you indefinitely like others said. If you need more than the last 3 months, they've got it, but they're likely gonna charge you to access it.

If you really care so much, you'd remember to download it more regularly than once every 3 months. If you can't remember to do it that often, you obviously don't care enough about it.

Getting Beyond the Helldesk

rizzo420 Find a job in a college (474 comments)

I would suggest finding a job in a college. It'd be a lateral move, but you would be in a MUCH different environment. I would suggest finding a small college, too. The benefits are great. The pay may not be the best, but most of them offer free tuition. The other benefit is that you usually get to do a whole lot more than just simple support, though support is your main task.

Choosing a Replacement Email System For a University?

rizzo420 Re:what happens if... (485 comments)

Many universities switching to one of these 3 services generally only move the student email accounts to that service, keeping employees on their own servers. The university is not generally liable for actions of the students (they generally do not act on behalf of the university), only the employees (who do act on behalf of the university).

Testing IT Professionals On Job Interviews?

rizzo420 Re:Blame it on the idiots who can sell themselves (1057 comments)

Actually, you are correct, in a way. Other professionals are true professionals. They have state certification. IT certifications aren't professional certifications like teachers, lawyers, doctors, nurses, engineers, etc. The term "IT Professional" is made up by the industry. We aren't true professionals.
