Should Developers Have Access To Production?

unformed Re:Jesus no (402 comments)

Yep because code that compiles is guaranteed to work properly.

Stick to what you know best, the database. Let us do what we do.

Accidental Wii Suicide

unformed Re:What a Tragedy and No Charges? (1343 comments)

However, in this case the *stepfather* left a gun around that killed a child that wasn't his. He may or may not be suffering, and it should be investigated.

Read the article. Normally the gun was kept in a locked place away from reach by the children. He took the gun out because he thought he heard an intruder. After investigating, he let the gun on the table and didn't put it away immediately.

unformed Re:A stupid question... (304 comments)

An experienced java programmer could manage to create memory leaks using threads but you almost have to do this on purpose ;-))

Wrong. You an have memory leaks in Java just as well. It's just more difficult.

I'd even go as far to say that experienced people are more likely to cause a Java memory leak, because they'll be doing unusual things for optimizing/caching and what not.

Usually, this involves Swing and dialogs that were closed and forgotten about, and not properly dereferenced.

IT Workers To Get Fewer Perks, No Free Coffee

unformed Re:Paging Mr. Vader - something slipping through (620 comments)

If the company's only options are laying you off or cutting benefits to save costs, suck it up and be happy you still have a job.

If you think you can do better, feel free to walk.

When Developers Work Late, Should the Manager Stay?

unformed depends (426 comments)

If the developers are staying late because the manager messed up, it doesn't hurt to stay late (but stay out of the way and order them food)

If the developers are staying late because they come in late or they messed up, no, the manager doesn't need to stay.

You're reading some article on CNN and suddently these thoughts start going through your head:

"Pills from Canada."
"Everyone can buy a house! Get a no down payment mortgage today!"
"Nigeria can make me rich."
"I feel depressed."
"Seen on Oprah Jr! Buy Dan Brown's Vampires and Wizards today!"

Logged In or Out, Facebook Is Watching You

unformed Re:Shocked (336 comments)

A number of reasons:

1) I don't get spammed by email. I don't have to send everybody my new email when it gets changed.
2) It's far, far, far easier to get in touch with people you've long fallen out of touch with.
3) Adults are just as much social whores as kids are. We (as a race, excepting geeks) ARE a social creature, and we like talking and socializing with others, in whatever way possible.
