Waiting for them to call me back on Friday. Unfortunately I have two interviews to prep for over the next two days and so Friday is as soon as we/I could get the time. But, I'd take this job over those other two without a second thought. Just gotta keep me word on promising to show up somewhere.
«Differences between Big-Endians, who broke eggs at the larger end, and Little-Endians gave rise to six rebellions: one Emperor lost his life, another his crown. The Lilliputian religion says an egg should be broken on the convenient end, which is now interpreted by the Lilliputians as the smaller end. Big-Endians gained favor in Blefuscu.» J. Swift, 'Gulliver's Travels,' 1726CE
Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
I was reading this article that said that we need to yank out C++ code from dangerous areas and rewrite them in Rust. One commenter mentioned that the newest C++ iteration fixes all the problems. Now I had "retired" back when auto_ptr was the hot new thing to take care of the deletion problem, and it seems that there are some new language features to fix the issues that auto_ptr introduced, and of course there is the whole new section of the language to give us the functional programming paradigm (I always like to use that word, LOL). That said, I suppose even with all the new features, it still is possible to blow one's foot off, something that Rust does not seem to allow oneself to do.
