Now here's the second part: wonder why they have all that nice stuff in office? They effectively expect you to live at work. That's awesome for some people that love it, but for others they never think about it until they're about to jump out a window. Remember that one.

Not at all. It's a great place to work for if you have a family, because, in addition to all the family perks, the working hours are ridiculously flexible. gSome people do spend lots of hours there, of course, but only because they enjoy it so much.

x*10^3 + y*10^2 + y*10 + x = 11 * (x*91 + y*10)

This optimization follows from the fact that n has no more than sqrt(n) primes.

That's not how/why it works. If n=3, there are more than sqrt(n) primes. What you're "hitting" are not primes, they are factors of composite numbers you're trying to remove. The reason you can stop at sqrt(n) is because any composite number <= n will have at least one factor <= sqrt(n). Since you only need to "hit" one of their factors you can stop at sqrt(n).
4. In Topic: Proper attire for interview

Posted 23 Sep 2012

Depends on the company. I never wore anything other than shorts and flip flops to my interviews. But if you're unsure, might as well bring a suit and a tie. Can't be overdressed for these things.
5. In Topic: Are programmers underpaid?

Posted 19 Jul 2012

Not sure what's the deal with obsession about 100k. In any case, if that's how much you want to be making then working for Google will suffice. You'll be making much more than that actually (yes, even as an entry programmer).

So no, no need to create a company like Facebook or Microsoft. You'd want to do that if you want to be one of the richest men on Earth.
