    MyName13 reacted to AngryBeaver in Angry rant: I have been studying IT to get a useless degree   
    I would say you could start as an infosec analyst without any experience straight out of school... I know because I am constantly training in people JUST like that. Sure they may be titled as a junior or assoc analyst, but they still make good money and in 1-2 years normally are bumped up in title and pay. So an Infosec Analyst is normally reviewing/triaging alerts generated by a SIEM. Heck, with automation and the amount of access you can get to most products via API now a lot of the data collection is done already. 
     
    You don't even need a cert most of the time, but the entry level ones are cheap and help give you a leg up on someone else straight from school without one. I look at education and certifications as investing in myself and improving/showing my worth/skill level. You can't really go wrong with any investment you make into your self.
     
    So in this field for example without at least a 2 year degree you would be extremely hard pressed to get started with just a cert. Now if you managed to get some experience the degree might be less relevant, but in general they want 3-5 years of experience, a degree, or a combination of both to = 3-5 years. The truth is though there are a LOT more jobs in this field that people to fill them and the problem isn't getting better. So we often find people have a solid foundation of knowledge and then train them into the field. That foundation of knowledge is mostly around proficiency and understanding of OSes, Knowledge with networking, and overall just having a general understanding of how a machine operates. If you can understand the basics then in most cases you can be trained over time to be a pretty good analyst (if you are motivated). 
     
    People are quick to say Education is a scam or not worth it, but I doubt many of them have tried to climb to the higher tiers of those roles. For example I am currently pursuing a PHD to continue improving myself, expand my knowledge, and increase my value to the company.  I mean sure without a degree I could get a few certs and work an entry level position, but I am not going to climb very high off that.

    MyName13 reacted to Soag in Is there any way to pause downloads in epic games launcher?   
    Maybe you used it under different conditions and simply don't remember it. Like pausing and resuming the process without closing the app.
    Other stores are other stores, I don't see a valid argument here. Their store is rather fresh compared to the rest and under continous development. But I will admit it is something that should eventually be there.
    And I can come up with at least few reasons to start the process anew.
    If they can't correctly verify how your download went, there is no way to resume the process without errors. If they don't have a process to verify your already downloaded data, they would have to store progress data for everyone until the actions are finalized and with current amount of downloads they may have gone with cleaning the DB out of loads of data (this one is HIGHLY unlikely, that's not an efficient way to create software). GTAV is new in their library, god knows how integration with R* API really works and how much time they had to get that done, maybe they cut corners here and there (even though they should have that already successfully implemented because of RDR2). To be honest I bet they did, which is visible on R* side as well, which might suggest there was not enough time between making the deal and going live. Amount of downloads might be messing their processes (poor optimization issues) and some errors, which you are not aware of, might arise. Or maybe that's just something which haven't been properly thought out/implemented. I bet it's a learning lesson for them and eventually it will work just as everyone expects.
    As for now, it's a burder client users need to live with.

    I've been using it for a while now.
    I used to have an issue with bitdefender's custom SSL, but they seems to have fixed that since 2018.
    You can literally use Bitdefender Total Security, for free, perpetually. Just by making a new trial account every 3 to 6 months or so, depending on how long you got it for. Simply "Switch Account" in the Bitdefender software to the newly made trial account and your trial period is reset... I've seriously been doing this for over 2 years now. You can use throwaway emails too. Just need to remember the email and password you've used to sign up until you've got the software installed and you're good to go after that.
     
    Here's a 90 days trial:

    It works nicely, to me, never had an issue in the past 2 years with it. I personally set the firewall to "Alert mode", which tells me whenever a new app wants access to the internet (just once, not every single time). I have nothing negative to say about it.

    MyName13 got a reaction from mr moose in What do/did mathematics exams look like on your college (engieering departments)?   
    If I understood them correctly, mathematics is the main issue.It's sad to see that teaching mathematics is a universally bad skill, but I'm not surprised.Students are first supposed to learn the theory without asking why it's important and use it some time later.It seems that, most of the time, there is no connection between mathematics and applied mathematics courses.Mathematics is not learned so that it can be used as a tool.

    Same thing.Why does anyone need to be weeded out anyway by using mathematics as a filter (add bad teaching to that and you're expected to learn everything yourself...).Biggest problem on my university is that engineers study mathematics too deeply (makes me wonder if they consider us mathematicians or engineers).

    MyName13 got a reaction from seee the state im in nooow in What do/did mathematics exams look like on your college (engieering departments)?   
    Damn, this thread is ancient.
     
    Anyway, there was no understanding in this thread back then nor is there understanding now.When mathematics is taught the wrong way there is no "mathematical / critical thinking".In the 4 semesters of mathematics I've attended (single variable calculus + very basic things about differential equations that can be solved by hand + very basic linear algebra + pretty crappy discrete mathematics course that barely covered some basic terminology of graphs+ some weird mixture of intro to probability and statistics and numerical mathematics) there was no development of student's thinking (unfortunately the same thing is same in elementary and middle education).Theory lectures are all about presenting definitions, theorems and dumping proofs without even bothering to explain what these things represent and how one should arrive to these proofs.The rest is about solving problem sets (which is 70% of the grade) where quantity beats quality.Problem sets are all about calculating things by hand as fast as possible and not giving some good problems that make you think and help you progress in the art of problem solving.
    I've noticed, from many textbooks I've found on Amazon, that things aren't any better even outside my university.Most mathematics textbooks are very terse and don't even bother to explain why something was introduced in the first place.The main structure is: definition, theorem, proof, repeat.
     
    Regarding your example of engineer's perspective, mathematics alone can't help without knowing what the system is and how it works.
     
    Again, what I should have mentioned over a year ago is that there is no problem solving mathematics on my university which is why there was so much misunderstanding in this thread.
    See above.By the way, what do you mean on paper?Isn't it all done on computers today (I assume that most processes are so complex that they have to be modeled by computers)?How is some mechanical / chemical / electrical process mathematically proved (you make it sound as if it is pure mathematics without any involvement of theory from the area of interest, be it mechanical, electrical or other engineering)?
    By the way, what does using mathematics to model the problem have to do with proving theorems in this case?
    Same as above.Regarding proofs, they are useless if they and rigor get in the way of actually understanding what is going on.

    MyName13 reacted to AluminiumTech in QT plans to go anti-open source because of Coronavirus and need for profits | All future versions possibly delayed by 12 months for open source   
    Qt as a product is split into 2 offerings.
     
    1 is licensed under various licenses: LGPLv3, GPLv2 or optionally GPLv3.
     
    The other part is exactly the same as the first but it's licensed under a commercial license absolving individuals of the responsibilities that come with GPL and LGPL code. They can do that as the copyright holder.
     
    Anything that goes into the open source code makes it's way into the commercial license and vice versa.
     
    My comment was that so many companies and individuals have turned to Qt as a platform which was supposed to be open source friendly and actually community friendly but then it's stabbing the community in the back. It's all centralized in one place.
