Jobs are like credit cards. You need one to get one. Probaly the most common types of thinking will never enter into the thinking of the amused credit card holder. Just sayin.

Fo real tho? They could cut out prolly 50 items and services on a musician's laptop that have the potential to interrupt my music creation. And get rid of things like xbox running a screen record in the background that can slow me down, and that I gotta have an Outlook account just to disable.

It is a long way from being a friendly world to audiophiles. There is no user manual to make the "Windows" environment easier to navigate and who that has spent the last year struggling with it wanna write one free specially when they talkin bout paying the credit card holders ta do it.

They prolly just offering money to shut us who know up giving open source answers @ $0.

The same link was undoubtedly shared on many other forums. Either apply for the position or don't, but you're deluding yourself if you believe that you're somehow engaging with Microsoft in an open debate about anything and everything in this thread.

I viewed it in same light as newspaper "letters to the editor". People don't write to the newspaper editor to communicate with the editor. They write to the editor in order to communicate with the newspaper;s readers.

Not sure if the deal includes a green card.

In the world of IT, there are many calling centers that are operated off-shore to put it that way :wink:

Probably does if they find someone they think is worth hiring. Unfortunately the deal probably doesn't include getting rid of Trump (or masses of idiots who voted for that guy; I think that tells more about the country than Trump who's probably not entirely stupid himself), so who cares.

I think it is more troubling to think about that Apple, Google, and Microsoft, all fundamental to our everyday operation and communication, sits close to the San Andreas Fault line :scared:

The Mount St Helens eruption of 1980, was over 1500 times as powerful as the Hiroshima nuke (to compare 15 kilotons with 24 megatons).

If an eruption like that happened today, I wonder how our IT day to day life would be affected :scared:

I don't think any of the Washington state volcanoes would affect IT life much. The volcanoes in Washington state are all located quite a distance away from major population centers, and the prevailing winds would blow any ash to the east of the major cities. During the 1980 eruptions, I remember one day where there was a tiny dusting of ash one morning at our home in Redmond (I grew up essentially right next to Microsoft).

The major eruption danger is from Mount Rainier, and would come in the form of a lahar (volcanic mudflows). Puyallup is a smallish town to the east of Tacoma, and it turns out it was built on several hundred feet of mudflow deposits, from a major lahar 5700 years ago. The communities of Puyallup, Electron and Orting would be in serious trouble if Rainier erupts, but I don't think that the flows would reach Tacoma.

Earthquakes are a different deal. All of Western Washington would be affected by an earthquake, due to the subduction of the Juan de Fuca plate. The PNW area gets an ENORMOUS quake every several hundred years. It may not happen in our lifetime, or it could happen tonight.

Meh. I'm quite literally sitting a few feet away from the San Andreas fault line as I write this. I'll still take that over Texas or Florida right about now!

There again are some talking about the topic of earthquakes. Which is what I was talking about just before checking this post and forum.
Coincidence? Hardly. Happens to me every day.

As if there are really those concerned with the valuable internet infrastructure of these
