CERN intership contest
« on: September 18, 2015, 10:47:22 pm »
I'm no longer a student and my coding stinks  :(, so I hope this interests someone else:

I wouldn't talk about slave labor - I'm fairly confident you'd get some compensation. Also, I'm guessing that if you show up somewhere with I've worked at CERN in your CV, you get some extra points.

CERN is full of satanists. One of my electronics teachers from Faculty worked in CERN on that particle collider, and as soon as she realised what is going on there, she left. She told us about lunatics who wanted to create a black hole on Earth and destroy everything.

Hey, it's worse than that! CERN are creating a giant artificial brain, which will take over the world and turn all humans into batteries. When that happens, you will prefer the black hole.

Batteries don't have preferences.

A joule thief is an even worse DC-DC converter.

It might have applications like lighting an LED with the innate PWM produced, but the saturation spikes might kill other devices when the field collapses and it's not tuned right.

Clone sound appropriate, but more like an Evil Clone :)

I'm sure there was a lunatic there, but it was your teacher.

Actually, that's the modern path of passage. Do it all for very little for "extra points CV"... I have over 10 years of experience and recruiters are still trying to convince me that I will benefit from being able to add this superb company to my CV. HA! HA! My short CV is 16 pages long and on the list of companies there are JP Morgan, Visa, Cartoon Network, BBC, Payboy, Sony...

The larger the company the less they think they can pay. Be pragmatic and don't let be pushed around. On the other hand, if you have no experience - shut up and be grateful for any wisdom you can get without paying for :)
