00:29 jberger run4flat has a new job (as do I) and time seems to be less available
00:30 jberger oh, vicash left anyway
00:37 pdurbin jberger: congrats. at the same place?
00:39 jberger I'm still in Chicago, I'm at a large financial institution writing boring internal code
00:40 jberger but being paid well to do it
00:40 jberger hopefully I can keep myself sane until the job market in the sciences opens up a little
00:44 pdurbin jberger: boring java?
00:52 jberger worse ... python (kidding)
00:52 pdurbin heh
00:53 jberger its a cool system in principle, a Python IDE with a built-in distributed object database (which even hold the source code you are working on)
00:54 jberger so everyone can see all the code being used/created
00:54 jberger its like open-source but for internal development
00:56 jberger of course the devil is in the details
02:12 pdurbin jberger: they use Python at the Center for Open Science, which I visited the other week: https://plus.google.com/10777007​2576338242009/posts/AkCBQ8sGLAA (and they're hiring)
02:15 jberger interesting
02:15 jberger I wish there was something like it in Chicago
02:53 jberger__ joined #pdl
03:09 perigrin jberger__: coworker with preaction?
03:10 preaction we work for different teams under the same director
03:10 jberger__ perigrin, yep though I don't work in the same grou p
03:10 jberger__ He gets to do Perl!
03:11 perigrin hey there are more than a few Large Finaical Institutions in Chicago ... I guessed right :)
03:11 jberger__ Well figured sir
03:12 jberger__ It's no accident, when I couldnt find a good scientific position, my friends at my local pm chapter had the connections
03:12 * perigrin nods
03:13 perigrin and it may be boring work, but it pays the bills :)
03:13 jberger__ Too bad the python group had the hiring budget
03:13 jberger__ It sure did
03:13 jberger__ Does
03:13 jberger__ Yikes auto corrrct uber fail!
03:13 * perigrin wonders if he could even start to read Fabozzi these days.
03:14 jberger__ I would rather read Jackson e&m
03:15 jberger__ Hint no one WANTS to read Jackson
03:15 perigrin no one wants to read Fabozzi either :)
03:16 perigrin though now that I've found the "Hitler reads Jackson E&M" ... I see your point.
04:05 jberger_ joined #pdl
04:23 jberger_ Ahahah I have found at least three Hitler Jackson Videos and they are awesome
04:23 jberger_ The book is a terrible text btw
04:24 jberger_ We used to debate what the question was asking for more time than we would spend on all our other questions
04:24 jberger_ In other subjects
04:25 jberger_ I think I averaged 5 hours per problem in Jackson
04:26 jberger_ perigrin: just cause I'm curious, which video did you watch?
04:27 jberger_ Oh and like one of the videos said, we often spent most of class clarifying the "it is obvious that ..." statements
