the most amazing goto I ever saw was something like this


code:

try
{
    // Stuff
}
catch (...)
{
   goto error;
}


if( 0 )
{
   error:
      // some error handling crap
}

How long did it take them to figure out why the code wouldn't work with optimizations.

let me guess: they had never even tried to run the code without -O0

i was in ca for a work thing and a work friend took me to a talk at the computer museum where zuckerzerg was speaking. honestly i'm a little surprised he's been as successful as he has, he has zero charisma and is extremely uncomfortable with public speaking. also he's terrible at it. that's my relevant story

He surrounded himself early with the right people, whether that was his goal or not. The site went viral and never had much functional competition until they were big enough to just buy everything that started to show some teeth.

My guess has always been his success was primarily luck driven. Just like everyone else.

a friend of a friend works at gamestop and has a weird-rear end coworker that never shuts up about megaman battle network (so they call him battle network steve), and for years he's been taking his barely over minimum wage paycheck and buying gamestop stock long before this whole thing happened, because he genuinely believed in the value and "mission" of gamestop. then the price went through the roof, so now he won't shut up about that either, except he's not selling any of it because he thinks this is an example of the true value of gamestop and therefore its only going to get more valuable in the future


Shame Boy posted:

except maybe mega man, but he is very clear that it is only the specific mega man that is in mega man battle network, because it is the best one that deserves a remake more than any other mega man

he apparently brings this up to customers all the time too. like every single customer that makes the mistake of talking to him gets a lecture about mega man battle network from battle network steve

Good news is in CO it's illegal now to post a job opening without giving a cash salary range as well as the potential opportunities for advancement, and its illegal for them to ask salary history at all.

I got something like 175% more total comp than my last job, probably partly because I didn't name a number. And partly that I was in a game dev company and lol those rates are so bad.

iirc the mandatory "ethics" course in the cs program i went thru (i only minored in cs, tho i don't think there was any other ethics requirement for the major track) was basically just a writing course in disguise. to be fair most of the people in there desperately needed it because they couldn't write worth a drat in any sense but the extent of the ethics content was that we went over a couple high profile data breaches and the professor basically went "that sucks, try not to do that"

Fortaleza posted:

It was drilled into our heads in several classes that ethics and safety are paramount because we’d be designing and making things for the public where if it goes wrong it could kill and/or maim folks or leave them without power or heat :byodood:

but it was clear as a non-engineer they weren’t talking to me and none of that’s been even close to true in my career

My ethics class was a bunch of case studies on horrific poo poo Like the therac 25 with a refrain of "you don't want to be remembered for something like this so loving don't". I thought it was effective.

one thing i’ve noticed is that a lot of canadian universities don’t seem to do the liberal arts education thing. like you go in to your track, you take those classes, and leave. a lot of people have gotten confused when i talk about the gen eds i had to take irrespective of major (race and gender studies, non-western perspectives, history of western political thought (i don’t remember which that satisfied), arts, history, etc) and i went to a state school in kentucky. i was super surprised at this

The extension school is one of the degree granting programs, yes. Some courses are taught by the same people as teach the children. For way less than the children pay per class, too lol.

It's not exactly a satellite, it's just the night school. Many courses are taught online, some aren't. There's a residency requirement on the degree where you have to take however many campus only courses.

I dropped it when I realized I wasn't really getting anything out of the program, and don't think a masters (in CS) will materially help me.

Sagebrush posted:

It's illegal to fly people for pay without a commercial pilot's license. Plenty of private pilots have tried to claim they are just "sharing" the plane with random strangers, and as a result the FAA has extensive and thorough rules describing exactly what counts as flying for pay. It is also illegal to operate a civil aircraft from random public areas like a parking lot or rooftop. All the flying uber loopholes you can think of are covered.

The only way a flying Uber will ever be allowed is if it's just a rebranded commercial helicopter service, with all the pilot and operation and certification requirements that entails.

If you ignore the regulations you'll find that there aren't any that affect you. Assuming that the government won't crack down on you or enforce their "rules". Works for Uber re medallions. Or airbnb re zoning restrictions. Easy to think the FAA won't give a poo poo or act (lol they'll get shot down by F18s)
