    Should I transfer or not......PLEASE HELP ASAP

    I graduated from Bucknell 5 years ago. I know there are many Bucknell alumni in finance, and many at large banks/private equity. I know because I emailed many of them in a search for internships. While at Baruch, I was able to secure an internship at the US headquarters of an IB via a...

    Side business

    That is definitely one scenario. I think a more likely one is that it becomes regulated, and then a major casino operator steps in. PartyGaming likely has a long term plan to do this. Major US casinos already have online sites that service non-americans. They are just waiting to jump into the US...

    Side business

    Of course you can do that. Many people do. But the issue isn't being able to play; that just takes a little effort. The issue is being able to make money. If everyone you are playing against went through the effort of opening an overseas bank account, good luck. That sounds like a poker...

    Side business

    Most of it is legal, and some of it is taxes. Poker players are not treated fairly when paying taxes. Some states, like CT, do not allow them to deduct losses. Because of this there are cases of poker players owing more in taxes than they actually won. Legally, as with taxes, poker players...

    Side business

    I tutor math and physics on the side. I usually do it on the weekend, but sometimes I do it after work, depending on the situation. I used to play poker, but it's not worth the time anymore. Perhaps if the US legal environment improves I'll start playing again.

    Programming Game/Puzzle

    I thought many of you might be amused by this seemingly simple puzzle game. RoboZZle online puzzle game My favorite puzzle so far is "Fermat's Spiral 3." http://www.robozzle.com/index.aspx?puzzle=1043 It seems impossible at first. You should probably start out with a few easier ones...

    Will "Thinking in C++ Vol 1+ Vol 2" help me create a good base ?

    I would not recommend the book to someone who had no or little programming experience. For people who already grasp the bigger picture, and wonder about the idioms of the language, or for people who know C and want to know how C++ builds off of it, then it is very good. Plus it's free, so go...

    Will "Thinking in C++ Vol 1+ Vol 2" help me create a good base ?

    Bruce Eckel has made Thinking in C++ available for free at Planet PDF - Thinking in C++ If you have a C background then it is probably a good way to get started with C++. The book is aimed at those who are switching from C to C++. It is extremely detailed.

    Linux users?

    I agree that it is useful, but only if it works. The tab key does nothing on that particular box. On the other machines I use, I don't run into these issues.

    Linux users?

    Here is an example. It just happened to me: [schmidt@glmach ~]$ cd /apps [schmidt@glmach /apps]$ ls [schmidt@glmach /apps]$ cd kdevelop [schmidt@glmach kdevelop]$ cd /apps [schmidt@glmach /apps]$ ls kdevelop [schmidt@glmach /apps]$ cd branches [schmidt@glmach branches]$ cd /apps...

    Linux users?

    Here's my experience as a new linux user: I've been using linux at my internship. The only experience I've had with it before was in college, so it has been a painful week. I use a few different machines that are reset every night, which means that on some the backspace doesn't work at all, on...

    I was planning on checking it out, assuming my brain does not explode during the stochastic calculus final.
