Anyone here working at Toptal?

Freelancers: what's your rate?

Recruiters: are you incentivesed to have someone lower their rate during an interview even if it's against their own best interest?

Why shouldn't I use pic related?
>been running for 18 years
>no ads
>basic IMAP/SMTP support (unlike ProtonMail), and decent webmail GUI
inb4 based in US. I'm assuming that my emails will be collected no matter what. I just don't want them scanned for ads.

Alternatives:
>ProtonMail (running for just 4 years, mentioned before, no IMAP support b/c it's ALLEGEDLY e2e)
>Posteo (ugly website imo, running for 8 years, shitty domain name to say verbally to English-speakers)

Am I missing something?

NFC

No.62028590 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hey /g/,
I need to write data to a web application when an nfc tags gets read.

I have no experience creating mobile applications, so is there an app out there that would allow me to pass data to a web application in any way?

A possibility might be an app that reads data from the nfc chip, then perform an API call based on that data?

Is buying blank pc's to fill up and resell a viable business?

After all these years I can now take an empty pc and pimp it out, now I want to buy bundles of them to resell online

I know alot of you guys have the skills, but why not do it?

Are there some terms and conditions to prevent it?

Can your phone notify you if there's water damage?

I spilled some soda on a coworkers phone but wiped it off immediately. My coworker got upset and said she got a notification that there's water damage. But she didn't show me when I asked. She walked away. She was texting on it so it's not like it didn't work afterwards. Then she put it in rice and left.

How do I know if it was water damage? Am I liable to replace her phone if she didn't show me it? She could easily go home and drop it in the toilet and then tell me I broke it and need to buy her a new one

Why does Jensen do this to me? Why can't I just decide what fucking voltage and clocks my GPU runs at like with an AMD card?
