10+ years CS here, and I still do that. Habit. Back from a time where it wasn't around and I can usually pull it up with just "go" in the search bar.

Once you get into an automated trance of processes to help streamline your workflow, small stuff like that actually doesn't matter.

Oh, wait, you're a student. I see. You'll learn.

I do that, or click Google on the quick dial or new tab page.

Partly habit, mostly because I can't stand ancient search terms in my 'omni bar'.

I could clear cache and history every time, or just go incognito, but I like having stuff indexed that I visited in the past.

Not really worth it. The benefits and pension plan is great but everything else is pretty bland and unambitious imo.

This.

I find it hilarious when wannabe alpha geeks get all snotty about this sort of thing. There's absolutely no reason to change habits. What, am I held back by typing 'go' and hitting enter? I type 120 wpm, that's utterly negligible.

I'm shocked I even learned to use autocomplete. Back in the day, you'd type "google" and hit ctrl+enter.
>>
>>52443088
>everything else is pretty bland and unambitious imo.

As compared to the life of the average software engineer or IT guy? Ha!

And you think teaching has relatively little career growth? Buddy, unless you get on at BigCo, you're not going to see career growth either. And even if you do, you're probably going to see that growth stop dead in 8 - 10 years unless you want to become a pointy-haired boss.
>>
>>52443285
>As compared to the life of the average software engineer or IT guy? Ha!

Didn't say that.

Imo the only way to go is to make as much money as you can and then start a business and invest into it. Being a cuck who has to work for a living when 30+ is pretty pathetic desu.

You will almost certainly fail. That's simple probability.

> Being a cuck who has to work for a living when 30+ is pretty pathetic desu.

You are going to be wildly disappointed in your future.

Actually, scratch that, you'll have magically changed your mind when you're 35, single, but driving a decent car. "Well, this isn't so bad, at least I have healthcare..."
>>
>>52443344

Yeah. It really is sad. But people prefer the "safe and easy $60k/yr" road over the more risky but more rewarding business route.

Public school in most places pays like shit, my mother's a teacher, about to retire, and she was talking about how they have barely any young teachers to compensate for retiring old teachers. Right now, the benefits are awful. In a few years when cities start realizing they need more teachers it'll be good again.

I've thought about being a teacher, but that turned me off.

That's true.

But you'll never get the discipline to self study and self learn, unless someone smacks your ass for not doing so, for 3-5 years.

That's the value of uni.

And also getting a job. Projects mean very little compared to recommendation letters. Employers hate risk, and a recommendation letter mitigates the risk. A project transfers the risk on the recruiter (he's supposed to make a judgement whether the project is indicative of your quality), and that's too much risk.

>FOUR FUCKING YEARS

I could study nothing but different CS topics all day every day for a decade and still not contribute a single thing to the pool of knowledge. CS, essentially being an application of mathematics, has limitless possibilities. The only way you ever feel like you've mastered anything is if you pick one narrow area to dive deep into, and ideally never run into anyone better than you at it.

Man, I was a CS *GOD* when I was in high school in the pre-Internet days. Fucking crazy good at what I did. Then I got the Internet and found out how much was out there that I knew nothing about...
