Writing a moderately-trafficked blog, I sometimes get some interesting search queries. Thanks to the awesome folks at Clicky Analytics, I get pretty incredible data on what people are searching for who somehow end up here.
Most of these searches are pretty on-topic. If you’re searching for Instruments crashing, for instance, some blog post here is likely to help you. On the other hand, some people search for ridiculous things and end up here. When that happens, it’s the unlikely circumstance that Google really has no relevant content on the topic, and sends me traffic by mistake. Let’s fix that, by writing relevant content for these searches. Sort of like a Frequently Asked Questions, except more of a Frequently Seen Searches. I’ll use
to clue Google in about what I’m writing about. I’ll primarily cover things not covered elsewhere on this site, and also things where I have little enough to say that I won’t end up writing a full post about it. My information will be highly relevant and perhaps even helpful, on occasion. All these are real searches that ended up on Sealed Abstract.
Anywhere from $100-$250/hr, for somebody competent. No, you cannot grab some kid out of high school and pay him below market, it won’t work out for you.
Look at their portfolio? Ask to see apps they’ve written? Really the trick isn’t so much just being an iPhone Developer, the bistable system, but being competent. And if you’re trying to identify competence, well, that’s the oldest problem in technical recruiting. My company offers that as a service.
a.k.a. 50/50 revenue share development app and iphone freelancer to work for equity and app development 50 50 and countless other variations. This one, and its misspellings, constitute a lot of searches.
See also: Bigfoot. They don’t exist. If you find one, they are running some type of scam worthy of a Nigerian prince. No seriously, they don’t exist. Read one of my many articles about it. Just stop. Step away from the keyboard. Coffee break time.
Because they want to eat. Do you work for equity only?
I’m not sure which side of the dispute the searcher is on, but generally speaking, a contractor will hold source code until they’ve received full payment. Source code is a contractor’s final recourse.
No. But it’s not not standard either. Different contractors do different things by default. Some contractors charge a premium for this. Check your contract. If you don’t have a contract, you should.
Here you go.
There’s a really great tutorial already on this. I don’t understand why Google sends me traffic about this.
On the other hand, if you’re looking to make a commercially-successful game, Angry Birds is a really poor way of going about it. One searcher asks “Is there any money in making an angry birds clone?” The answer is no.
Dream Theater, BT, JT Bruce, Tally Hall, Kamelot, Symphony X, Freakeys, Rhapsody of Fire, Power Quest, Angra, Nightwish, A Fine Frenzy, Coheed & Cambria, OK Go, Rush, Iron Maiden, Pomplamoose, Bit Shifter, Madeon.
Well, either they have a use, or they don’t.
Step 1: Go to an Apple Store.
That’s about it, really.
Yes, so I realize that I have published MIPS assembly on this site, but you really can’t just expect to google a random line of MIPS source (there are many searches like this) and expect enlightenment. Try something like the MIPS instruction reference.
Here you go:

Good for you! Most americans only save $392 per year.
In sane languages such as C#, a static class (compiler-enforced singleton) has the effect of being both sealed and abstract, although it is declared to be neither.
But probably the real answer to your question is “because that’s what the C++ specification supports.” Which explains a lot of things about C++, really.
Oh, and here’s the second joke, left as an exercise to the reader: It’s possible to construct method definitions in a sealed abstract class that cannot, under the specification, legally be optimized as dead code.
I always add a clause to my contracts that e-mail to particular addresses constitute written notice. That eliminates a lot of problems.
That said, even without such a clause, e-mail is a much more reliable medium for legal purposes than, say, meetings.
At first I was thinking that the stupidity of this particular searcher might set a new record, but after thinking about it, the question has a certain existentialist depth to it.
I would suggest you contact the police.

Probably because the problem isn’t very well-defined. Effective software projects start with a thorough specification that defines the project goals and objectives. If you don’t have an awesome spec, you won’t have awesome software at the end of it.
These also don’t exist. pg wrote about this:
Actually, startup ideas are not million dollar ideas, and here’s an experiment you can try to prove it: just try to sell one. Nothing evolves faster than markets. The fact that there’s no market for startup ideas suggests there’s no demand. Which means, in the narrow sense of the word, that startup ideas are worthless.
Your guess is as good as mine. I’m not sure if the mathematicians themselves have straightened that out.
Another one of those excellent existentialist questions.
Probably not, for many definitions of “it”.
Write some apps.
I’ve noticed an interesting trend–people just paste in random parts of longish sentences from some other document(s) into Google and click around. Like this one:
may be expensive, you’re constantly losing money getting the resources for the software, unless the client pays more.
Somebody obviously just pasted an e-mail or some such into Google. Mystery: I’m nowhere near the front page for this search.
I would love to know why this is. Just bored at work and have nothing better to do than leaking confidential documents?
Give this a shot. (You have to click twice.)
I think I could probably answer this query with any arbitrary search page, but I’m going to go with a shameless plug, Timely.
Anyway, I think that’s enough for now. Hopefully these little mini-posts have contributed in some small way to improving Google’s search quality and answering the obscure questions on the Internets. Either that or given us all something to laugh about.
