US Senate Set To Vote On Whether Climate Change Is a Hoax

Tandava Nadesan why don't ask politicians get together and (659 comments)

why don't ask politicians get together and repeal the law of gravity then jump from a high building. It makes as much sense as voting on whether global warming is a hoax.

Windows Server 2003 Reaches End of Life In July

Tandava Nadesan Re: A reason to go with Open Source (155 comments)

Gp must have read the wrong line, it's RHEL 3 that was released in 2003 and is still in support until the end of the month. RHEL4 has a few years to go.

Fighting Tech's Diversity Issues Without Burning Down the System

Tandava Nadesan Re: Qualifications (479 comments)

Unfortunately that's the sort of thing that Gerry's women in IT a bad name. There are very few women in the department I work in but all are very competent. Of you get the number up to 20% with women with the wrong skills or low ability then people will start to think "women are no good". This is not a sexist thing, the same would happen if your company had a mandate to recruit 20% of the workforce with surnames beginning with 'r'.

Why Women Have No Time For Wikipedia

Tandava Nadesan easy solution (579 comments)

If you want gender balance then to be able to post a certain amount of text on Wikipedia you should have to post a certain number of Pintetest photos. And in order to post a certain number of Pinterest photos you should have to write a certain amount on Wikipedia. The amounts could be tuned to give a gender balance on both. But does anyone really think that having a forced gender balance would improve either?

If Java Wasn't Cool 10 Years Ago, What About Now?

Tandava Nadesan Re: What's the point? (511 comments)

I agree. Binary compatibility has always been 100%, and source code compatibility 99.99%. We did have some really code where someone had a variable called 'enum', the classes still ran but the variable needed to be renamed before r recompiling.
