Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

It's actually an excellent kind of ****ed up Boolean algebra.

Computers talk to each other through a bunch of 1s & 0s. Among these 1s & 0s are check numbers that let the receiver know something ain't right, namely that there are flipped bits. When something ain't right in the stream of bits, it is either fixed or rejected by the receiver.

Well, you may ask, why doesn't the sender, receiver, and the entire infrastructure do a better job of sending these 1s & 0s? They do the best they can, but there is this pesky thing called "The Laws of Physics."

Dave, this may be too personal, but have you done a lot of bit stuffing in your career? I have, I think that it made a man out of me.

I don't remember this at all during the past 10 years... then again, I don't make many calls.

In any case, point taken, I didn't read the original post correctly.

They've got their nice little base 10 system and they start counting at 1.

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

I'm looking for some suggestions. I'm about to graduate with an honors bachelor degree in physics with a minor in comp sci. I'm not exactly sure what kind of jobs I should be looking for. Something like coding javascript doesn't seem too appealing to me, but I don't know what kind of jobs are open to me with my degree. I was thinking of looking into data science. Any ideas?

Are you wanting to include physics as part of any job search or just looking for any programming job?

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

Both really. Something related to physics/science would be great, but a pure programming job would be fine. I'm just trying to figure out what kind of higher paying and more specialized roles would be interesting for someone with my background (and where I'd be attractive to employers) so I'm not just applying to w/e generic junior developer jobs.

I'm having trouble thinking of a job that wouldn't hire a physics major. Aside from doctor and lawyer you can pretty much work anywhere you want.

One of my best coworkers has his degree in Physics. He is a fantastic debugger / problem solver.

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

I took my physics degree straight out of college to (checks notes) - mail room, delivery driver, landscaper, waiter, home theater installer, network engineer and eventually at age 29 - programmer.

Yep, confirmed you can land any job.

Physics and Math majors don't have trouble finding good jobs

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

In 1992 in Kansas City no one was lining up to hire me. The only people I knew who got real jobs right out of college were accounting majors and engineering majors.

I should have immediately moved to Silicon Valley. Actually I should have gone to college in Sili Valley - 2 years at a community college then transfer.

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

lol ok thanks for the reassurance everyone. I was definitely a little worried about how my degree would look to jobs in the real world.

Unfortunately some of job searching is being in the right place at the right time and who you know. Also there are other factors like are you willing to change cities, etc. But keep at it. Even if you land a so-so job now there's no reason you can't keep searching for that dream job.
