Yes! Exponentially in last 10 years. When I took the exam a rank of 2.5 k was almost equal to not getting a rank. But now a rank of 10k has better opportunities!

Colleges mushroomed from 6 to 23!

Hi, this is the author of susudoio again with some questions for the community:

I'm not sure it it's really of much value, maybe something better already exists?

It would probably be a huge effort to rewrite in Go or Rust or whatever, but maybe worth it?

I'd love some tips on hardening the script. I'm sure there's more that can be done, especially with the "internals" (currently uses only bash and expect).

I've got some ideas for additional features, like selectively clearing bash history lines when the password is entered as an argument to the script. I'm working ASAP to get it down to a single file install, should be later today.

I'd love some feedback from the community. Maybe this can evolve into something people actually want to use.


Are you claiming that decentralization is the core business that makes amazon and google money? Or is it something else?

This should have been done in terms of percentage of time taken by child to do homework and how much of that parents get involved in.

There is huge difference in amount of homework given in countries like India and that in Australia.

We cannot compare that in exact hours.

Just my 2cents.

Why use this tool?

* You are a MacOS user who doesn't like to login with an admin account.

* You also find it pretty inconvenient to be non-admin in the shell.

* You also really dislike installation dependencies and non-transparent tools?

I made a convenience tool for security-conscious MacOS users.


I realize it's a bit cynical of me to say this, but this is the free market at work.

There can only be oh so many philosophy professors. Assuming a professor career lasts 40 years and each of these programs produces 10 graduates a year, how can they fit in academia? Maybe before you enroll you need to be made to sign a disclaimer that the opportunities are very scarce in the field.

Red, blue, yellow, green. And white. That's five colors! ;-)

This guy is building a cathedral on his own:


please don't think about it in terms of first world problems of time management. it is more like, they are poor and they want kids to get a solid education and get good jobs and lead a happier, fulfilling life compared to them. fyi: username is a function of yours'.

Don't drop out; you'll spend your whole career trying to push open closed doors (it gets easier with many years' experience or during an acute skills drought, but the issue never goes away completely).

Study whatever you enjoy most. It'll be easier for you to excel that way, and you'll still get the all-important degree.

Once you get your career underway, continue to learn and work on whatever interests you most; be prepared to continually learn and adapt over the decades. New technologies and ideas will come along that haven't been imagined yet, while some of the stuff you study at uni will be surprisingly relevant later.

Best of luck!

Perfect solution to a perfect problem of course.


Calling Russia a regime is like calling Microsoft "Micro$oft".


Cryptoindex.co is cryptocurrency market statistics portal that tracks over 1300 different (active) cryptocurrencies and tokens.

Every cryptocurrency has it's separate subpage with all relevant information about the project and all information is updated every minute.

For every crypto we are presenting the following information:

-Price in USD and BTC, since both are valualbe to traders and investors

-Price change in last 1h, 24h and 7 days

-Price in 14 leading fiat (national) currencies (EUR, GBP, CNY, JPY...)

-Market cap in regard to price and supply

-Trading volume in last 24h

-Circulating supply and total supply

And other important info.

CryptoIndex.co was made because:

1.We wanted a clean, mobile responsive site where we can find, calculate... all the info we needed.

2.We are large crypto enthusiasts and wanted to contribute to this great movement.

3.We are also more then happy to be able to help the crypto community and new users get all the info they need on one place.

4.We think contribution is important for adoption. (If you help someone understand how cryptocurrencies work, you are helping yourself) ;)

CryptoIndex.co is free to use for everybody who likes it! :)

If the community has any suggestions on how to improve they'r user experience and make CryptoIndex.co better and more useful, please feel free to suggest. Thx :)


>while all others were indiscriminately blocked years ago

As far as I am concerned Telegram was blocked for 1) being used by terrorists and 2) the Telegram staff refusing to turn in data to aid the investigation. This has not happened to other messengers like WhatsApp and they are not blocked. Am I wrong?

The main problem with libclang is actually that it puts another abstraction on top of the AST that nobody really had time to maintain. That's not made better by the amount of work changing libclang requires just due to its backwards compatibility promises.





While I agree that not everything is always great, I'd say the same for our own contributions ;) I've definitely let patches unreviewed for way too long due to internal priorities, and have gotten my share of shit at conferences for that...

In this case, the collaboration with Apple and Ericsson on the underlying architecture has been going on for a while, and while not everybody always agrees on priorities and design details, I'm thrilled to see Apple double down on their involvement here!

clangd already has a layered architecture, where you can either use the JSON-RPC mechanism or more directly control clangd and implement your own transport. There are no plans for this to go away, as generally large companies often have environments in which they want better control of features than a standard protocol like LSP can give you, and we don't discourage that.

We also just talked with Apple folks at Euro LLVM about this, and while the plan for the near future is for them to have a transport conversion to JSON-RPC, I expect them to want the more fine grained control in the long term.

In short, a oxygen starvation charge designed to extinguish fires in the datacenter went off, but the resulting sound and pressure blast from the charge was strong enough to destroy roughly 33% of the servers in the process. Apparently it was non-SSD hard drives that went.

Operations have since resumed from a backup facility, but there were also some un-related issues in getting the backup system online.

Guess this is a somewhat known risk, but very interesting dilemma still to have. Better of course not to burn the whole place down, but to have even an accidental fire alarm risk destroying a significant amount of your hardware doesn't sound fun either.

So if you could build a perfectly efficient compiler that did not create any additional overhead, if the normal compilation took about a second or two (or any longer) to run locally. Then you would run waaay over the gas limit. That also means such a thing would cost way more than 10 dollars to run.

I lived in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, New Zealand, and Australia. I think Hong Kong's tech scene is mostly about blockchain/bitcoin now. Most of the tech jobs I found here are in finance. Taiwan has not a very good tech scene, but is an amazing place to live. Singapore has a lot of startup hype and some good startup companies. It feels more diverse than Hong Kong and Taiwan for sure.

Melbourne, AU has a good startup scene and many interesting meetups. New Zealand doesn't really have much of a scene going on, except in Wellington.

I may want to move back to a Western country. Which other countries have a good tech scene going on?

I bought this book yesterday and loving it so far. So many great ideas for new startups.

I guess it depends who's counting, but I'm pretty sure BKK is the more recent, most-visisted city.

What you said about HK applies to BKK as well however. I'm really surprised of the opinions that tourists form of the city, given that there's basically zero correlation to the lives of residents.

For example, it's pretty common for (older, less enlightened) people to talk about the city's red light districts, as if they occupy the entire CBD. Although the well known ones aren't too far from major thoroughfares, you'd literally have to go out of your way to see anything seedy while traveling in the city.

People also talk about how difficult it is to get around, citing unprofessional taxi drivers. Residents drive cars or take the elevated train / subway, or more recently, Uber et al. The taxi industry serves (or preys on) the tourist industry almost exclusively now. Residents tend to avoid peak times and when you arrive somewhere you'll usually have the option of a valet or an underground car wash, so you're comfortably going from AC zone to AC zone.

Or I've known people who've stayed at a hotel on a major road and then complained about the city's congestion, not knowing they're too far from anything enjoyable in walking distance. Residents don't walk anywhere, really. It is congested but more importantly, too hot.

I could go on but won't. I'm sure the OP's take on BKK would have made me cringe as well.

This is the same reason I lost interest. I may have stuck with it if the Rust crates weren't AGPL/GPL. (And thus can't be used in Apple's app-store which is an interesting target to me).
