Look beyond the "standard online outlets".

Reach out to contacts if you have them (friends/mentors from College and your personal life).

If you know specifically what you want to do and you want to stay in your current are, seek out the companies in your area that do this and monitor their job boards and/or reach out to them directly.

You can also try volunteer work, professional comp sci and meetup groups that meet your interests, etc. to expand your network.

Basically try anything you can think of besides just searching online job listing sites, that's the least-effort approach and you'd be lucky to land a desirable job that way.

Yes, and it isn't actually "God Mode" (there's no special privileges). It is just a master control panel folder. You name the folder with whatever you put preceding the dot.

Yesterday in a parking lot I witnessed a guy backing out with his face buried in his cellphone (still facing forward). So basically he backed up without looking or even glancing at his mirror.

-----


Maybe he had an turned the front camera on giving him a better view of the back.

-----


I don't think so. His face was fixated on his cell phone while he idled backwards for a bit. Then he finally looked out the back window and finished backing up, then pulled forward.

I was being sarcastic. You must be truly disciplined to not use your phone while driving. I am not, good thing I do not have a functioning phone 98% of the time.

Not exactly true, I'd wager most kindle owners don't bother with piracy. I did finally setup OverDrive with my local library, however.

It says they're accepting feedback until August 16th... So until 12 days ago.

The initial comment period has been extended September 9th. This was requested by the ITT and TIA.

You originally said the IEEE. Was that mistaken? What's the ITT and TIA?

-----


Yeah, sorry about that, I was wrong.

Edit: I was wrong on all counts, see chuckup comment below. This happens after boot in cooperation with the OS. Encryption and secure boot are irrelevant.

I presume this type of firmware enabled OS modification will not be able to work with drive encryption enabled, but does secure boot help at all in this situation? Presumably Lenovo includes their own signing key in their firmware so their signed executables would also be trusted. Or is this not something secure boot would verify?

This same topic has 14k comments on reddit. Here is one of the attempts at explanation by a physician:

Pakistan ahead of the curve with self-driving camels. Eat your heart out Google.

Forgive my ignorance, but where is content hosted? Can you start with and lurk with zero bitcoin or do transactions have to take place for everything?

It is probably more of a desire to reduce the effects of RSI and prevent jumping all over the keyboard. We don't necessarily write code at break-neck speeds, but we do need to use modifiers and special keys more than the average keyboard jockey.

That beign said... typing speed is also important. I've always written a large amount of prose as part of my job (compared to most non-programmers). And not just time-wasting typing at HN, but documentation, job-related emails, etc.
