Heaven play a fool on me

Heaven like to play a fool on me....

Two years ago I was teaching a supposedly IT-proficient person A on how to parse a csv file into a table based on certain rules. And two years back here, I am back at this circle, teaching another person B from the same country who is of person A and is also supposedly to be IT-proficient this same trick.

And the scenario...

Rewinding back to 2 years ago...the source code and all were there, Mr. A can 1) read the source code and decipher what it's about or 2) ask people who wrote the code on how it works. Fortunately for him, he have the luxury of the 2nd option. Of course I'm also kind enough to provide him on how the flow works out and definitely other than me another fren/colleague also gave him hints and assistance. However in the end if I recall correctly, he did managed to get it working but with a lot of errors here and there, that someone have to clean the piece of code.

2 years after, at a new place from the above this interesting scenario surfaced up again! Well it was tasked to Mr B, however the coding has to be done in object-oriented style and no sample code for him. BUT on the internet there is some sample code provided if you look around. Hmm... initially don't understand how this processing work, but with bits of explaination and showing the way to google, this guy found some code. However, he wasn't able to adapt it to what he want to use. Similiarly as above, errors and bugs occured here and there, and I have to clean them up to make it work.

Interesting questions that I really wonder...
1) Do I speak alien language that they don't understand what I am talking? When I see the error, I know what's happenning and it's becoz they don't understand what's needs to be done correctly. And probably you reader out there might be thinking, maybe instruction is not given clearly. Nope, the clearest instruction is given, ie: A = B or transform A to B...
2) Why do they take up this occupation in the first place?
3) How do they pass the test and interview?
4) Lastly, if this is passed to a local who is a fresh grad, would the situation be entirely different?

Oh God, can you spare me this joke for the third time if possible, I don't know if I can take this joke again...

    They are more than IT proficient, they are supposedly Import IT Professionals. IT perhaps means 'I TALK', all can talk and all is talk.

    Dun tell me about it....
    Once I read your post.... a vision came and haunt me!!

    Put it simply, these people from this alien country (but not all - there are good people I have worked with) are:
    1. Useless
    2. Lazy
    3. Taichi Master
    4. Boot Licker
    5. ZERO in the knowledge department
    6. F100 for their attitude
    7. Blah in their cv and interview
    8. Full of SHIT

    More of a liability then help.

    It will be a better and bright world if they are not in this field.

    Check this out...

    The Salary Theorem establishes that engineers and scientists can NEVER EVER earn as much money as businessmen, salesmen, politicians, and actors easily make.

    This theorem can be demonstrated by reducing it to a simple mathematical equation:

    The equation rests on two assumptions:
    Assumption N°1 : Knowledge is Power
    Assumption N°2 : Time is Money

    Given that :
    Power = Work / Time ......(i)
    Knowledge = Power ......(ii)
    Time = Money .....(iii)

    By substituting the (i) and (iii) into (ii),
    Knowledge = Work/Money

    Money = work/Knowledge.

    From the above equation:
    Knowledge goes towards zero, Money goes towards infinity, regardless of the value attributed to work, even if the value of work is very small.

    On the contrary, when Knowledge goes towards Infinity, Money goes towards Zero, even if the value of Work is High.

    In conclusion:
    The less you know, the more money you definitely make.

    Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

    Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

    Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

    The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

    We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
