    True words, but if format not specified, PDF is best IMHO.

    If someone requested a specific format to enter into a DB, that's totally understandable. My industry goes mostly on professional references, credit list of movies you've worked on, and demo reel of specific shots with a breakdown sheet. And almost everyone runs on Linux, so Microsoft format is generally frowned upon.

    I totally agree that being able to follow directions like blue or black ink only, initial every page, DVDs and no VHS tapes, is very important. It shows the person applying for the job is actually reading and treating the application carefully.

    **Back to the thread:**

    If you're not on linkedIn, I highly recommend it for professional contacts only. Post up your resume, get recommendations from old coworkers or classmates, and get to know some recruiters.

    There's no reason why LSD and DO* would be mixed together, the highs are totally different and only a first time user couldn't distinguish the difference. Maybe if you could put LSA on blotter it would happen. I'd say when you buy blotter it's either LSD, DO*, or inactive with no chemicals on it.

    Also unless I'm totally crazy, there's no way in hell you could fall asleep on a reasonable dose of LSD (100mcg or more). There's no way I could even think about sleep for 12 hours after I ate the dose.

    > To be perfectly honest, that's sign number one that you're not looking at this objectively.

    Since we're discussing Tolkien's beliefs, quoting him seems the thing to do. Do you disagree?

    > Each of the races on earth (Elf, Human, Dwarf, Orc, etc) is overall described as being pretty in proportion to their goodness. That individual exceptions may exist doesn't change the fact that throughout the works you'll never have a dwarf that's as pretty as an Elf.

    Depends on what you're looking for. The Dwarves seem plenty happy with themselves and their women; I don't think Tolkien ever wrote of a Dwarf/anything else coupling.

    > Dwarves are also constantly portrayed as being stupider than Elves, along with the other aspects.

    To be perfectly fair, the Elves aren't exactly too bright themselves. They behave, for the most part, exactly like the Dwarves: holing themselves up in Nargothrond or behind Melian's Girdle or in a secret hyper-magical golden forest or in a hidden valley far to the north and west of trouble. Dwarves are merely more consistent.

    > I'm not aware of any description of him that would come close to making him sound like "one ugly motherfucker."

    After that moment there's not much of a description anywhere, so I can't say anything beyond that moment.

    > Are you REALLY going to attempt to tell us with a straight face that you don't see even the slightest hint of racism in those descriptions?

    I *could*, but I'll save you the hair-pulling. I'm not necessarily inclined to do so, either, because you're right, to a degree. However, I think you blow it out of proportion.

    Light = good; shadow = evil. Applying it to skin colors could be interpreted as a symbolic maneuver to some extent. Of course, it could come back full circle in his head and apply to the real world.

    Your vehemence irked me, is all. I highly doubt that Korea looks to Tolkien as a cultural inspiration.

    You may benefit from being more direct in your communication (getting to know them, saying you're interested) instead of waiting for them to be attracted.

    Also, if you tell yourself that you go for long periods of time without any women being interested, that can create that reality.

    Additionally, it doesn't help to believe that women shouldn't be attracted to ugly guys but should be attracted to you. Women are going to be with who they want to be with, and being bitter doesn't help you become more appealing. Accept that there are a lot of women that aren't doing what you want them to do.

    Focus your attention positively and optimistically on learning how to communicate directly and empathically. The less you're concerned about the outcome (and instead enjoy the process) the more positive the process will be.

    Again, my experience is nothing at all like yours. The most of the senior members on my team have families and children, and pretty much work 9-5. The younger guys, including myself, often come in later and work later. However, never has there been any kind of expectation for us to work more than a 40-hour work week. We're self-motivated, and our extra effort is always recognized and rewarded. And we all get along great, young and old.

    You have this very predatorial view of Google that I'm really surprised by, because I haven't experienced a single bit of it. Thanks for doing the AMA; I'll probably be more aware of problems in the future having read this. But frankly, I'm still pretty surprised at how horrible you make the environment sound.

    I don't believe that your horrible experience at Google is common at all, and I'm sure I still have on my rose-colored glasses. The truth is probably in the middle.

    > You act like these are somehow new...

    No, I didn't. I just said I've been using it for some years now.

    I've written a LOT of Objective-C, and I like it a lot. I've been writing Cocoa apps since 2002. Saying that ObjC's manual retain/release/autorelease are better than an RAII-managed smart pointer system is absurd.

    In ObjC you have to *know* whether to retain/release/autorelease/copy or sometimes *do nothing*. Most of the time it's obvious. Some of the time it isn't. The only way to prevent cycles is to not retain, but there's no difference between a retained pointer and a non-retained pointer. They're both raw pointers.

    ObjC's garbage collection remedies this somewhat, and that's awesome!

    However, we're not talking about GC. So, with C++ smart pointers you *know* you have a retained pointer if it's a shared_ptr, and you *know* it's not retained if it's a weak_ptr. Ref incrementing is automatic, and decrementing is too thanks to RAII. With C++ we're dealing with a complete abstraction around pointers that works pretty damn well perfectly.

    How is ObjC's better? Seriously, I don't see it. And I fucking **LOVE** Cocoa...

    Something of the sort is clearly desirable, and there's got to be an art of the possible. A principled treatment is maybe a couple of hops away. I'd like to see some more specific attention being paid to syntax, which has more useful (monadic) structure than merely that which comes from being inductively defined. This stuff is then "syntax with an associated semantics", an injective interpretation function which we intend the elaboration process to invert. Reflection is such a key component of dependently typed programming that we should be designing language features to support it. Yet more evidence that dependently typed functional programming is more than functional programming with dependent types.

    Oblivion is a deep, fun, beautiful truly open world game. One of my favorites. To critique... It's magic system is obtuse, and spell creation, while critical, feels like you're using using a debugger and not creating spells. The characters live in the uncanny valley. A dozen people voice act thousands of characters. And the leveling/skill system is painfully unbalanced - borderline broken. When playing, and you get to level 10 and find that you suck cannot survive a single fight, just slide the difficulty slider down until level 20. Trying to understand the leveling mechanics is the number 1 thing you can do to make the game less fun.

    Fable II is wierd. I love and hate it. It's unique. Good graphics. VERY fun combat-magic control scheme. Strange and disturbing British toilet humor. Engaging world, locations, commerce. Fun magic and skills. But it is NOT an open world game. The biggest choices you will ever make in the game is what kind of clothes you like to wear and what kind of haircut you want. You'll pretty much always end up with the same skills, the same weapons, the same path through the game no matter how much you try not to when playing through it. The game has a strange morality subtext that I try and just ignore since paying attention to it makes me feel either sick or pompous. You can pick any quest you want anywhere in the world from this list of 1 quest. Probably 5% of the content in the game does NOT have to be done in order and is not part of the main quest. The game is painfully easy. No combat anywhere in the game will offer you any challenge what so ever so picking spells and skills is as meaninful as picking the color of your shoes. The only interesting NPC in the game at ALL is the Hero of Skill who is a right bastard and spends every second on screen trying to fuck you figurativly or literly. And as much as you hate him and want him to die, you'll also not want to kill him b/c you'll be so starved for any kind of character in the game's NPC's at all. And the overall message of the game is that "The world shit's on you". As a kid a bird shits on you. You spend your twenties getting shat on every day with the only respite when you get to shit on others. Your thirties pick up and are a mix of getting shat on, finding out who's been shitting on those you care about and when are you going to get a chance to shit on them. And you'll feel obligated to buy a house, get married, and have a baby in game b/c then at the end you can say "Well, at least I accomplished something worthwhile." And all this is done elegantly and beautiful with lots of polish.

    It's ok with me that that sentence makes no sense to you. I don't imagine it would make sense to a lot of folks. Most of the things I write are difficult for others to understand. It's a hazard of the profession, I suppose.

    And as for the control. You are both in control of yourself, and not in control of yourself. Both are true, depending on how you look at it. The literal "you" is the one controlling your actions. It's your muscles, your brain, your energy that is causing them to happen, but on a higher level, the control is indeed coming from elsewhere.

    Have you ever been to Chicago? I do not think so. Chicago is a huge city. In the city proper there are about 3 million plus. The surrounding burbs hold another 5 million people. You can walk around naked with dollar bills glued to you in 99% of Chicago. Where the Olympic would run is one of the safest most beautiful parts of the city. The crime people speak of is in two section on the far south side of Chicago. They are sadly low income minority areas. They have about a 50% jobless rate. That is where the crime you speak of is. It's 99% gang on gang with the occasional innocent bystander hit by a stray bullet. Or jumped by being mistaken for a gang member. The only way you would ever go there is to score drugs or pick up hookers and buy a gun. So please don't insult my city. East LA, Detroit,Houston, St Louis, anywhere in Dade county Fl are ten times worse.

    1. When I was a med student I stopped throwing out my trash for a few weeks when I was studying for finals. I just put it in large black plastic bags in my backyard. After finals were over I just kept doing it... After about a year I decided to move and there was no way I could just throw it out in the dumpster slowly so I rented a UHaul filled it up with the garbage and threw it out at the dump. I don't remember how much it weighed but it was an insane amount. There was stuff rotting inside the bags and weird juices were seeping out into the back of the UHaul. I hosed the thing down but still this weird smell lingered in the back of the truck when I took it back.

    2. Currently I live alone in a studio and the only furniture I own is a bed, a desk and a TV stand. I got used to a really minimalist lifestyle as a resident and I never changed once I started making more money. Right now in my fridge the only things in there are two half eaten cartons of chinese food, some tabasco sauce and a container of mustard.

    3. I routinely buy more underwear or socks because I forget to do laundry. My building does not have washer/dryer hookups in the apartments and I would have to go downstairs spend an hour doing laundry it's easier to just stop by the store and walk out with new stuff.

    Hardly, Wave is cool because it can aggregate all your communications in one spot. e.g. there's a bot that turns a wave into a twitter page so you can make tweets and track what other people are saying, it'll pop back up in your inbox when new stuff has been posted.

    You can embed a Wave in a blog so it becomes the discussion comments instead.

    Imagine, one place where you can have *all* of your discussions *and* aggregate all your daily info (rss feeds).

    There's no reason someone couldn't add a gmail bot to wave that updates every time you get an email!

    Too true. One of many reasons I'm not a Democrat.

    As for the illegal wars, many who voted against did not oppose it in any meaningful way apart from their initial 'no' vote. They voted against once and then slunk off to meekly approve every dime wasted thereafter because they wouldn't stand up to the RNC bullshit machine. Which brings us back to another reason why I am not a Democrat. And frankly, if they were against the two stupid and illegal wars, we would not *still* be murdering people in Afghanistan and Iraq. They could have stopped funding the murder after the 2006 mid-terms.

    I realize that I get hung up on defending the Democrats about the Congressional vote for George Bush's illegal war, but the misrepresentation that "most Democrats voted for it" really bugs the crap out of me. It bugs me even worse when people who *aren't* Bush apologists say it. We should all know better.

    I agree with what a couple people here offered, but I wanted to offer my own version as a man who has only had one girlfriend and also doubts himself, like you.

    -There is no set thing that a relationship is nor is not. As someone mentioned, ignore movies and TV. That is entertainment and not reality. There are no rules, no criteria, no "right" way. It all depends on the people involved. A relationship is just two or more people who share time and feelings with each other.

    -Having differences with your date is not the issue. What matters is how you two deal with those differences. As you talk to someone, you will learn about each other and you will mutually decide how to proceed.

    -yes, being afraid to take chances is normal, but you just have to take a deep breath and jump in. You must also forget your self doubt. never tell yourself that it will not work out, that you are boring, that you are not likable, etc. That will kill your confidence and set you up for self-fulfilling prophecies.

    How do you know you will not worj out with someone? It's all about communication. You meet, you talk, you learn, and see what will happen next. Don't make assumptions. Be true to yourself. Decide what you want in life and what you want from a partner then go after it.

    -Don't let other people influence you with negativity. Your age and experience is irrelevant. We all accomplish goals at different points in our different lives. What works for one does not work for another.

    Dating is scary at first, but it does have to be. It just takes confidence and effort and honesty and communication.

    You say that your Father's side of the family was pretty well off, but you were given away (by whom?) to your mother's family, and was subsequently rescued by your paternal grandmother. This does not make sense to me because from what I understand, you would have been the responsibility of the paternal side of the family anyway. Are you saying they gave you away, and then got a court order to get you back???

    Also, I have seen plenty of supportive families in India that take care of relative's kids like they were their own.

    Honestly, it's not outrageous to ask for a citation regarding ties to GE's media outlets and the government. It's possible they exist, but I'm not making any claims about them.

    If you're saying that MSNBC is directly funded by the White House, why has Olbermann been obliterating the Bush administration for years? Also, Fox clearly has ties to far-right wingnuts since they actually employ people who served for Bush and Reagan like Rove, Ollie North, Newt Gingrich, etc. So how does the White House control either media outlet?

    Hey people, how about sorting the comments to put the oldest requests first and upvoting those so we've got more of a first come, first served system happening?

    This isn't angling for myself since as you will see I was one of the last people to ask so I'm at the back of the queue in this respect. Just think that since some people seem to be down voting to jump the queue we should counter that.

    Also I'm British and the fact of people jumping a queue is not something I will tolerate lightly. I mean, I wouldn't WANT to use googlewave if it's going to be full of queue-jumpers!

    you mean the czech president, poster child of the no campaign first time around, is UNDEMOCRATICALLY ignoring the will of his DEMOCRATICALLY elected parliament which overwhelming endorsed the treaty - and because ONE MAN dosn't like it and is a eurosceptic the will of their parliment is being ignored.

    for anyone complaining about a democratic process - that is THE prime example of an undemocratic process. The constitutional court in the Czech republic is due to rule on the treaty within the next week or so - meaning once their ruling comes out, Klaus will have no option but to finally sign into law - well before six months.

    Once I've seen interesting theory: gravitation is "thermal" behavior of aether-like gas. I.e. "big mass" (star or planet) is like "tornado in aether" which is "colder" than nearby air (air inside tornado is colder than air around it) thus "pressure" near it is "lower" and it sucking nearby "air" (just like tornado) - so we "see" this as gravitation / strong/weak forces near atoms/protons/electrons/etc. (pardon me for Einstein blasphemy - just this explanation seems to be most *simple* and realistic - unlike strings, dark matter and others mind-blowing *almost-working* theories based on Einstein's theory). P.S. There is one conclusion was made based on this theory: capacity/"volume" of electrical accumulators is 2-5% higher if they placed near chemically reacting substances (acid reacting with sugar for example) - I didn't check it but could be interesting to know if that guy was lier or he's right (and it's easy to check) - he is philosophy doctor.

    Okay, you've taken me up a bit wrong but on the plus side, I agree with you :)

    I agree that TV can turn off your productivity and creativity and make you a bit lazy and forget that there are other things to do.

    I also agree that watching a movie (and I'll add a TV show) can be fun and pleasant and that's what I meant. The kind of fantasy world escapism that comes from storytelling.

    Personally I only watch TV on a rare occasion when there isn't something specific that I want to watch. I find that if I come home from work and turn on the TV without doing anything else, it becomes much harder to do anything else. I lived without TV for years before, just because we never bothered hooking it up and it was fine. I was in my early 20s then.

    So what drove you to go TV-free? Did you hae a realisation that it was sucking time from you or something? Have you checked out adbusters? They have a TV Turn Off Week and sell TV-B-Gone, which is a keyring device that's sole purpose is to turn off TVs. It totally rocks. I'll never forget the day my husband rang me from the airport to tell me that he wasvin a bar that had 8 TV screens on that no-one was watching and he was having great fun turning them off and watching the bar staff get really confused. :)

    Let me understand: to distill an argument made elsewhere in the comments, rape has not been established in a court of law, therefore we must presume innocence. However, it *has* been established that he violated the age-of-consent in the locale where the sex/rape/whatever occurred. But, really, that's OK, because the age-of-consent varies from country to country, so we shouldn't take it seriously. In other words, even though it has been proven that he **broke the law** by having sex with a minor, it's OK because the law is stupid, but violation of the law that *isn't* stupid (rape) has not been proven because, well, even though her testimony says it happened it really didn't because the case never went to court.

    OK, I'm going to go boink a minor now. For the record, I understand minors always like it rough...

    EDIT, in case I'm not being clear: there seems to be a contingent that wants to be extra persnickety about legal matters when it comes to determining whether Mr. Polanski committed forcible rape (which, it is clear, has not been proven in a court of law), but are willing to fudge the legal issues and give him a big pass on statutory rape, to which he has admitted.

    Call me simple-minded, because smoking ***is*** bad, and smokers should be charged more. They cost more to keep healthy (relevant in this health care debate), and there's not many redeeming qualities about smoking.

    I also support taxing drinks with added sugar & high fructose corn syrup -- I put this in the same category.

    Because there's a work-around in this law it's a bad idea? I concede there may be people importing cigarettes, but there's plenty of people around where I live buying a pack at the corner store. They see $10+ for a pack, and they start thinking about the cost of continuing to smoke. Also, NYC has plenty of programs to help you quit smoking.

    Back to my original point: it's Bloomberg's "fault" that cigarettes are $10+ a pack? I'm okay with that.

    I think you are talking about is a contract directly with the client where you provide them with some type of expertise.

    What happens in the USA is that employers bring in regular “work a day” employees so as to avoid issues with benefits and to avoid lawsuits associated with unjust termination.

    Sometimes they’ll bring you in to help on a short-term project, they need a few extra hands for a short while, or they use the contractor route as prolong interview process.

    Some managers find it easier to get approval to bring on contractors than getting approval to hire permanent employees and they have an endless rotation of contractors coming and going.

    This title/article is an outright lie.

    This man, Roger Beachy, **is a scientist, not a business man**. He is the director of a non-profit research institute that conducts basic science. He has never worked for any corporate entity and is a legitimate researcher working on plant science beneficial to humanity. This article borders on libel.

    Want proof? Here's a summary of his resume. "Beachy held academic positions at Washington University in St. Louis, and The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, where he was co-founder of the International Laboratory for Tropical Agricultural Biotechnology and held the Scripps Family Chair in Cell Biology. He is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences".

    The Danforth Plant Science Center, which he is the director of, conducts research such as:

    * molecular mechanisms involved in crop viral disease

    * mechanisms of plant pathogens

    * biofortification of staple crops to improve nutrition

    * protecting plants (and the humans who eat them) from heavy metal toxicity

    * understanding how medicinal plant species make bioactive natural products

    * engineering drought tolerance in plants

    * renewable fuels research

    this is to name only a **few**.

    They also have partnerships "in Africa, Asia and Latin America, to pursue collaborative research approaches toward improving vital, life sustaining crops such as cassava, sorghum, rice and corn." and programs that deal specifically with biosafety policy in regards to implementation of biotechnology in a sustainable manner.

    He is appointed as the provisional director of the new NIFA (National Institute of Food and Agriculture). Who better to appoint than a seasoned scientist who understands the financial needs of the researchers who are on the frontline.

    This article is ignorant, paranoid, and dangerous to good science.
