Moderating the ModsI've had numerous instances where I have had my signature and my post edited by moderators and not in an attempt to censor, but actually changing what I said and making incredibly stupid statements (ie 'I have a small penis' 'I like dudes' 'etc'). If the site intends to have a forum, it would be... 3 years 7 months
Top tier students @ Villanova B-SchoolSome of them really seem to have their head on their shoulders and I don't just mean ANT. 4 years 3 weeks

HTC Evo or IPhone 4GHTC Evo or IPhone 4g I'm about to switch phones and don't know which one to pick. I'm leaning heavily towards the Evo, but may hold out until the Samsung 4G phone comes on the market. I hate Jobs, but... 5 years 3 weeks
Handling the stressHoping to hear from some of the more senior members that were or still are trading (esp. prop)--I'm talking to you Edmundo and others: How do/did you guys handle the stress day-to-day on the job? A couple of my friends are in trading at prop MM firms (think Optiver-type place) and I will likely... 5 years 1 month

Any space for the "regular" guys?[quote=BlackHat] I shouldn't have even been participating in this thread - total waste of time. Most of us only have experience in one area and assume the rest of finance has to be the same way. And when the only example used for a long/short that is serious about programming experience is... 2 years 3 months
Any space for the "regular" guys?[quote=leveredarb] you have very strong opinions on the hf side considering you have essentially zero idea what you are talking about. Your entire opinion on the LS space is based of one interview? Ok buddy.[/quote] You seem to have strong opinions about things I have never said. Where did I say... 2 years 3 months
Any space for the "regular" guys?[quote=BlackHat] You have a level of hostility in your posts that makes it really hard to have a constructive conversation... [/quote] I find that hilarious coming from you. Look at your posts in this thread and your unsubstantiated attacks. [quote] Anyway, I think you should stay away from... 2 years 3 months
Any space for the "regular" guys?[quote=BlackHat] Not saying this isn't true at all, but rather arguing that there's more than one way to skin a cat and it's always going to be that way. You won't be 95% useless in the investment management business if you don't know computer programming, that day is not going to come. You... 2 years 3 months
Any space for the "regular" guys?Also, I hope you guys realize IP is trolling you guys unbelievably hard. He is a smart dude--Princeton MSF candidate iirc--and has worked in the industry in a front office role for years. You don't get there without having practical understanding of the industry and world. The takeaway point is... 2 years 3 months
Any space for the "regular" guys?I sincerely hope nobody here has the audacity to tell some high school kid or undergrad that they shouldn't be taking at least a few courses in some sort of practical application of CS. Intro to computer science and a couple courses beyond, learning VBA, and at least the basics of something like C... 2 years 3 months
chicago barsLockdown doesn't have nearly that much of a wait, although I still wouldn't chance it on Tuesday because there is a crowd for that deal. It is about the same size or even a bit smaller than Kuma's on the inside, so it could get crowded on a particularly nice weekend, but I haven't gone for one of... 2 years 3 months
chicago barsLockdown on Tuesday's is the best burger place to go to. Half price burgers and it is run by the former chef @ Kuma's. Otherwise, there are many options, can't go wrong. The wait at Kuma's is insanely long and the service is generally terrible. Most places in Wicker Park/Bucktown/Ukranian... 2 years 3 months
What type of trading or type of firm is the...Some more info would be helpful. College undergrad, recent graduate, career changer? What's your background? And when you say not a quant, do you understand probability theory well and have you at least taken linear algebra, calculus, etc.? 2 years 3 months
Moving Away From "Buy and Hold"LOL so you went short Fridays close and bought them all back last night, after you claimed the market is going to crash. Jesus, you are just fuckin hilarious. Look at your own link you idiot. Look at your own returns. Negative Sharpe. Just stop. 2 years 3 months
