5 times you should consider meeting with a financial planner

  • A good certified financial planner can organize your overall financial picture and implement strategies that will help you achieve your goals, from putting your kids through college to retiring when you want.
  • A financial planner can sit down and estimate the true costs of parenthood, reorganize your cash flow, and plan for any savings goals you have as a family.
  • Anyone who has ever been in debt, whether from student loans or credit cards, knows it can feel insurmountable at times, especially if you're juggling saving for retirement or financial goals, or live in an expensive city.
  • If you're overwhelmed by your debt load, consider consulting a financial planner who can help you come up with a debt repayment plan that works for you and doesn't neglect your other financial goals.

Who's afraid of a big bad optimizing compiler?

  • Creating a thorough unit test suite and running w/ ubsan is great for catching any subtleties (like surprising char conversion behaviors) Everyone I talked to assumed they understood the implications of signed integer overflow being undefined behavior, but by the end I realized no one really did (and I'm certain I don't) Who's afraid of a big bad optimizing compiler?
  • Posted Jul 16, 2019 16:48 UTC (Tue) by JoeBuck (subscriber, #2330) [Link] The reason that C makes integer overflow undefined was for loop optimization, they wanted to make it possible for loops to be as fast as those in Fortran.
  • Posted Jul 17, 2019 6:47 UTC (Wed) by PaulMcKenney (subscriber, #9624) [Link] There was a lot more variety in systems back in the day, including some in which signed integer overflow did interesting things.

Stop Looking in a Box for People Thinking Outside of One

  • Although I can certainly recognize my own bias, it confounds me that companies are willing to auto-eliminate a group that I’d consider diverse and forward-thinking; a group of people who have already creatively redefined their world.
  • As more companies search for “creative ways to recruit employees”, I can’t help but wonder if they could develop a strong, yet overnight, competitive advantage by simply opening their doors up to the remote workforce.
  • As I started to further consider the concept of quantifying someone’s affinity or openness to remote work (and perhaps new ways of thinking or living), I conceptualized the “remote affinity ratio” or RAR.
  • In short, by enabling remote work, you are inadvertently training your people to improve the way they think and how they can achieve more.
  • In this context, consider that individuals with a bad experience working with remote workers will likely be the loudest.
