In Topic: We are Under Attack

Yeah, the government doesn't really have servers. They outsource that to government contractors. By "Government Servers" what one really means is FedRAMP compliant cloud hosting facilities owned by IBM, CGI, Dell, HP, and other tech giants and protected by access privileges that rival some maximum security prisons.


Are they at risk? Sure. So is every computer hooked up to the Internet. But anything hosted on "government server" is probably 10 times safer than a server anywhere else.

In Topic: Finding a better job

Yesterday, 09:44 AM

I'm 27. My salary has gone up an average of $7,000 every year since I started working. How you ask?


I've worked for five companies. I got laid off twice, quit once and then got fired. Then I did some consulting work, which I was able to parlay into my current full time job. And every time I've taken a new job, I've asked for, and received a higher salary than what I was paid at the last place. I've been with my company for one year, and I just got my first raise ever in my life; 3%.


Imagine that's your salary increase for the rest of your life. Because that's what happens when you stay put.


The only sure fire way I've yet found to get more salary is to move to another company for a slightly better job with a better salary. Gone are the days where you stayed with one company your whole life, got a raise every year, got a promotion every 3 years. You are in the early stages of your career. You want to get more money? Be aggressive. Shoot for a job that you think you can't handle. Don't be afraid to fail at your age. Because even if you do fail, what your next potential employer asks you during the interview is "What was your salary at your last job?" and then they will either match it, or go over that. Where you are at this point in your career, what matters is what you are getting paid, not what your job title is, not what your experience is, not anything else. What you are making now will dictate what you will make later. So always look to move somewhere with a better salary, especially this early in your career. Take risks.


I've flat out told employers that I got fired, and that didn't hurt my chances at all. I just got offered a job that pays $15,000 more than I make now, after I told them I got fired. I turned it down because although it's more money, the title would actually be a step back. And at where I'm at now, title does matter, and having "proposal manager" on my resume will not help me get the kind of job I want later. Where I'm at, I plan now to move around less frequently, and get much better titles and much better salaries when I do, which involves a lot more staying in put and getting some gold stickers on my resume.


Where you are, you should be looking to make a move about once a year, and get a better title, and a better salary. Don't stay put, or you will grow roots.

this may be true but is it bad if i continue to feel uncomfortable when im on a college campus and see someone in traditional atheist garb (pictured below)?




I hate when people generalize atheists by saying they're wearing fedoras. The fedora is identified by its broader brim. In reform atheist societies like Portland, they wear a "Trilby" which has a upturned back and narrow brim:




In Hipster Atheism, located primarily in Brooklyn and Berkely, they wear a Pork Pie, which has a flat top, and unlike a fedora or trilby CANNOT be worn at a rakish angle!



But what really drives me nuts is when people say "look at those atheists over there in their Newsboy Caps." Okay, first of all, that's agnosticism. That's not even the same as atheism. Atheists don't even wear newsboy caps! It's just ignorant:




But you know in more enlightened atheist societies, their imaginary girlfriends don't require them to wear any head covering at all. They are allowed to go without a hat and shave their neck.
