Some one will show up with a real TANK of a hack and the Frenchies will throw up their hands and surrender ....

Years ago (around 2008 time frame), I was working on a self project to create a ISAM multi value database (thing nosql type ). I was working thru all the b-tree theories and was debating whether or not to have leaf node records or external block store records.
I decided to post my results and ask for anyone that wanted to help, on some forums I belonged to.
One of the millennial's posted back
"why do you want to do something so ancient as ISAM / b-tree, you should write the project in SQL !"
AT that point I decided that they AIN'T teaching theory any more in school ...
Time 1991, had just been laid off due to restructuring (ie Retail Company had to find budget money to bring EDS in)
8 of us let go out of 30 or so.
The remaining crew were had gotten out of being 'on call" because "we are female and it's a bad part of town" or "We are working on the new systems and we shoudln't have to work on the old programs" ..etc..etc.blah blah blah. Guess who remained on the on-call list- yup the 8 of us that got laid off.
Anyway, the layoffs occurred at 4PM on a Friday.
On following Tuesday morning at 2 AM got a call from operations "We got an error on xyz job, you need to come in and fix it"
Me: no can do, been laid off.
Them: Well I guess we can call Joe then.
ME: Nope, he got laid off too.
Them: What should we do?
Me: Call the bosses' boss and tell them no one is on call anymore ...
Looking back I should have done the standard SOP :
"HEY, restore all the backups from 5PM yesterday and I will be in to fix things", and then
rolled over and went back asleep and when they called again, apologize - " oh I must have dozed off' and kept the ruse up till the remaining crew
showed up in the morning - but I didn't.
Live and learn I guess ....
"It also teased a machine-learning inference chip called Inferentia, and a small radio-controlled car called DeepRacer for executing autonomous driving models in the real-world and terrifying pets."
Damn, I got a CAT I would love to use this to chase it with (as long as the Missus isn't around)
.. Amazon here I come ...
Gessss ..... I recognize the names and feel giddy I remembered those days ...
Everyone in the industry were much more pleasant and shared their knowledge, kinda like early GPL.
Except for one guy, Bill Gates I thinks was his name, pissing and moaning to the editors of Mini - Micro Magazine about how hobbyist were sharing his Basic language amoungst themselves ...
"The Oracle founder also warned his disciples to be wary of new technology that would offer a new solution to their customers' problems.
"The old solution to customers' problems may no longer be the best solution. When you see that, it's an opportunity – or a threat," he was reported to have said."
If the bastards have found better solutions, at a lower cost, you best put the FEAR of god in them so our revenue stream will not be impacted ...
