"Describing location data as anonymous is “a completely false claim” that has been debunked in multiple studies, Paul Ohm, a law professor and privacy researcher at the Georgetown University Law Center, told us. “Really precise, longitudinal geolocation information is absolutely impossible to anonymize. D.N.A. (...) is probably the only thing that’s harder to anonymize than precise geolocation information.”
In 1079, Omar Khayyam calculated the length of the year to 365.24219858156 days. That means that he was out by less than the sixth decimal place– fractions of a second – from the figure we have today of 365.242190, derived with the aid of radio telescopes and atomic clocks. https://twitter.com/IslamScienceNet/status/1209055293482655745
"Galaksija" or Galaxy in Serbian, was a DIY computer from Yugoslavia, invented by Voja Antonić in 1983

Here's the complete listing from the Računari magazine (January, 1984) with the complete build instructions including the keyboard wiring (language is Serbian, I think)
And the ROM-a B instruction set http://www.voja.rs/galaksija/ROM%20B%20Listing%20Scans/ROM_B_listing.htm

I agree wholeheartedly with this. These things are so much more important to a senior role than simply knowing a programming language 'better'.
When you tell me you are a "senior" engineer, I expect you:
Present to your peers
Know how to discuss in writing
Back arguments with data
Know how to manage meetings
Prove there's a problem before you implement a solution
