According to the wikipedia article[^], Bradbury wrote a 'screen treatment' for the movie, but the screenplay was written by someone else. Imagine writing an elegant application in C++, only to have the boss's nephew rewrite it in VBScript.

During the meeting my employer spoke some unprofessional words to me so, I have left the meeting and told them about my resignation. After that my employer send the termination letter which is quoted that "You have been terminated as part of disciplinary action".
(After that incident, my employer contact me and promise to give good feedback when my future employers ask)
How can I inform my termination to my future employers during interview session?
Having bad ref from previous employer is always a problem and I am too curious about possible advice.
That said you can:
1. have recommendation from other people that the problematic boss
2. say you had disagreement with previous employer (insert good reason you'll formulate one peaceful morning) but globally you did good job (as someone else in the company can hopefully attest)

This is an unfortunate development, but your former employer is only trying to protect his own ass from future repercussions. Your best recourse is to inform potential future employers that your departure from this company was unpleasant, and entirely voluntary due to unprofessional and possibly illegal behavior of your supervisor. Emphasize your side of the story - that you left because of unprofessional conduct during a meeting, and that you were not terminated by the company - and make sure that any future employer hears this from you before hearing the other side of the story during a subsequent background check. If there were witnesses to this incident, it would be helpful to have contact information for them to hand over on request, or written descriptions of the event from them in your hand ready to hand over. This is definitely going to cause you some difficulty, unless the employer has a well-known reputation for bad behavior in the industry, but it's not insurmountable. Document everything you can, and best of luck to you!
That sucks. In the UK most decent firms have a sequence of HR procedures such as verbal warning, written warning, and a number of steps to be addressed before dismissal but not all firms have that. Certainly, get it in writing and document everything you can recall. It might not be needed but something written down will be fresh long after the mind has become clouded.
Best of luck.

Dont offer any information about this topic in the interview, unless they bring it up. If it is brought up, be honest, but check your personal feelings at the door and try to state your side objectively.
Try to focus on what you are capable of and why you will be a great asset to the prospective employer.
I wouldnt depend on anything that a previous employer says what they will do verbally after you have left. You should get a written statement from them before you leave the office for the final time.
Terminating employment is often an uncomfortable situation both both sides. It's usually a very sticky situation, legally, for the employer. In my experience they will placate the employee because they are no longer an asset, and possibly out of sympathy from the person informing the employee of their termination.
Debugging is twice as hard a writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult. It demands the same skill, devotion, insight, and even inspiration as the discovery of the simple physical laws which underlie the complex phenomena of nature."
But... which country are you in? I assume from phrasing, you're from India, but it's guess work. A lot of advice will be country dependent, such as elegibility for unemployment, etc.
Getting an agreed story in writing in exchange for agreeing not to sue my be possible.
I also would not trust them. Do you have a "Managery" sounding friend you can get to pretend to be checking your references in a few weeks time?
If you do have references at your former employer you can use, all the better. Otherwise, any future employer may get in touch with your last company anyway.
I don't have a lot of experience with this as an applicant though - I was with my previous company for a LONG time, and I got my current job due to good timing, a "give me a job" codeproject signature, and my articles and MFC forum postings. My last interview was much more me interviewing them as a possible employer than the other way around. I'm only showing off a little bit - if you're visibly active and decently skilled, you might be able to skip a lot of job search rubbish. Again, country dependent...

Those are pretty cool, if a little jumpy. But the concept and implementation is amazing.

Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom have decided to encourage users to associate their Windows 8 login to a Microsoft Account. There is one massive downside here.
My mother, while installing her new Win8 laptop, created a new Windows Live account (now renamed, yet again, to Microsoft Accounts) associated with her existing ISP email account. Now we'd like to change that to be a new "Outlook.com" email account, so she's not permanently tied to an ISP. Windows Live does not seem to allow changing the associated email address, or at least not as far as I can tell. Consequently, we can find no way of changing this.
I foresee some problems...
1. An ISP could go bust, effectively breaking the system.
2. She may want to change ISP in future, but her MS account is tied to the ISP account.
3. Any Metro app purchases are tied to her MS account, so reinstalling with a new account means she's lost any investment in apps, along with settings etc.
I've spent half a day struggling with this and come up a blank. Anyone got any suggestions?
Failing that, how on earth am I supposed to get support from MS nowadays for this kind of issue? I cannot seem to find any support info through their web sites anymore.
PS. I've tried the "Rename account" or "Change email account" options under Microsoft Account. These simply go to a page saying "The email address associated with your Microsoft account cannot be changed" message. Very helpful.
