I feel the same way but the case i just got for my iphone 5 was amazing, very slim didn't feel like it added a ton to it.

I'd put off watching the last 4 episodes of The Wire for a long time and finally decided to just power through them. I regret that choice. The world without knowing what happens in those episodes is a better place.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

Have an iPhone 4S and it's a sweet piece of kit. It's not a drinking man's phone though. If you're heading off on the sauce for a few days you're suddenly worrying about bringing a charger / borrowing a charger; you can't just set the alarm and turn it off when getting a few hours kip. The old Nokias were sweet in that regard - four days later you still had enough charge to make a call.

The smartphone that offers decent battery life will get my business in the future.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

Sometime while in the process of moving **** to our new house my phone got a massive scratch, not even a scratch really more of a gouge, on the screen that I was 100% certain went through the screen protector...but on further inspection the damage was to the screen protector alone. The things really do work

Damn, the first article I read on this said they kicked him, for which the obvious punchline is 'Well at least they didn't use their hands'

, it sort of sucks that the companies sacrifice battery life to lower the price of production. I'd pay more for better battery life for sure.

Can we get a tr of the sf trip?

When I was in school it seemed like most girls I knew, even the pretty ones, had them.

It also seemed like most girls never actually used them save to accidentally discharge on the damn hallways in the dorm and jesus- I don't know how you would live taking that in the eye- just being near it was bad enough.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

Our work is incredibly slow today, so I need something to occupy my time, let's see how this goes.

I currently work as an options trader at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Go ahead and AMA about the job.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

There are some jobs where you need certification exams. You need certification usually only if you're dealing with customer funds (so if you broker deals on behalf of customers, or if customers give you money to actively trade with).

In our setup, our firm has partners who essentially bankroll my boss to manage the portfolio, and the partners take on the risk. My boss and anybody else in our group doesn't need any sort of certification to do our jobs (sorry that was awful grammar). Very few traders have Masters degrees. I just have a bachelor's in finance, but one guy in our group has a Masters in Electrical Engineering and converted to the finance world.
