A young "dev" with tattoos and a nose ring types frantically at the keyboard while old C listings flow by on the green text terminal. After a few seconds the dev stops, exclaims, "I'm in!" and high-fives anyone nearby. That's the Hollywood way of "hacking".

Well, the first show starts with an in-depth discussion of security protocols over breakfast -- which would have had me laughing, if it hadn't given me such horrendous head pains.
It then moved on to an "I gotta get this presentation on new computerisated technology that I designed and built right, if I want to get the job!" scene, which, as we all know, is precisely how things work in the IT field, because "everything is in the pitch" isn't just the credo of hollywood, oh no.
Worst, though, is the low-mental-acuity, artless impersonation of Michael Mann's directorial style. If that kind of thing isn't done right, the result is just tedious, annoying, and embarrassing to watch.
Better to watch Mann's lowest-rated movie than this noisy drivel.
would mean having a scriptwriter work with someone familiar with dev
Yeah - where on Earth would they find one?

after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
Nope... Germany is doing pretty much the same
Here it is call the "hamster buy effect". Pasta / Nudels, Bincanned food, chips, toilete paper...
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
