6/10    For people working as programmers: what percentage of your time at
        work do you spend slacking off (web surfing etc?) and do you think
        some amount of slacking off is necessary in order to be productive
        the rest of the time?
        \_ Depends on the person, and the company.  If you burnout easily
           and need recharges through the day, but nail or beat deadlines,
           a good manager would be able to recognize this.  Keep in mind,
           though, that there are a lot of bad managers out there.  Also,
           as a manager, I would want to know that you can handle being
           "heads down" if you have to.
           \_ Do good managers ask employees to swallow?
              \_ Good employees will offer to swallow before a manager has
                 to ask.
                 \_ Good employees swallow without having to be asked.
                    \_ A good employee-manager relationship involves mutual
                       and simultaneous swallowing.

6/6     If something is c*N^(M-1), is it O(N^(M-1)) or O(N^(M))?
        \_ N^(M) = N*(N^(M-1)  ==> O(N^(M-1)) is a better fit.
        \_ Yes. (wrong answer deleted -- N is not a constant)
        \_ You show a distinct lack of understanding of what O() notation
           is about.
           \_ Not really.  It's a good question.  We typically drop constants
              like '-1', but N^(M-1) == N^M / N which means that the '-1' isn't
              a constant at all. --not OP

6/3     Hello.  Is it more efficient to dispatch the heat by turning
        the fan towards the door/window or towards the room?
        \_ "Dispatch" heat?
           \_ All right, I couldn't think of a better word.  What do
              you recommend?  "Get the hot air out of the room"?
              \_ Dissipate. Yeah, I was just being an ass.
                 \_ I like dispatch better. !op
                        \_ I would have said "remove", but "dispatch"
                           certainly also seems correct to me.  Behold this
                           definition of dispatch:
                        3 : to dispose of (as a task) rapidly or efficiently
        \_ Do you have two windows?
           \_ No, just one.  So it doesn't make a difference?
              \_ He's suggesting cross-ventalation.  The best way to lose
                 heat if it's hotter inside than out is to move the air
                 in one opening (e.g. a window) and out another (e.g. a
                 second window or a door).  If you don't have the second
                 opening, outside-in is usually marginally better,
                 depending on the exact shape of your space.
                 \_ how would one formally proof that outside-in is
                    marginally more efficient?
                    \_ good luck with that. it's a nice, messy
                       fluid-mixing problem best addressed with
                       computational fluid dynamics. in practice,
                       you want to push cool air in at the bottom of
                       the opening and warm air out at the top to
                       reinforce normal convection.
                        \_ Yes, that is what I concluded by considering
                           normal convection, but it is nice to know this
                           has been proven.
                           \_ not really proven.  demonstrable for many
                              parameters of room shape, etc. as suggested
