  Why does it take Task Manager longer to appear when you start it from the Ctrl+Alt+Del dialog?

Neil wonders, "In that program that called Invalidate­Rect 100,000 times, how many paint messages were generated?" The Zen answer to this question is "Yes." A more pra...

  Why do business analysts and project managers get higher salaries than programmers?


People get paid less than their employers' "reservation price" (the most they would ever pay), and more than their "marginal product" (the least they would ever work for). Your actual pay on that spectrum is based on your bargaining power, relative to your employer.Say your services to your company are worth $1000 a day. Under the gun, he would pay you that if he had no other choice. Say you would work for $100 a day if you had no other options. That's your range.Say you're new and independent a...
