That's not the Peter Principal, that's... something else.
The Peter Principal is commonly misunderstood.
TFA is accurate but your restatement of it isn't quite right.
You have the skills to do a good job, and you get promoted. That keeps happening until, eventually, you are promoted to a level where your skills aren't quite good enough to meet the requirements. That's where your career plateaus.
Who would think to test for something like that? Is tattoo compatibility even a thing? I guess it is now.
Apple should offer refunds and... yeah, that's probably pretty much it.
This has been Cisco's model in some cases. Funding a startup, letting them develop a product on their own, and then pulling them back in is how they got their server and unified fabric products off the ground.
It's also possible, and possibly more likely, that the devs simply abandoned the project because they couldn't or didn't want to put any more time into it. There's literally zero information about why they pulled the plug.
The devs of both the forks referenced in TFS have said the TC source contains a lot of problematic code. CypherShed has said they think the NCC audit wasn't detailed enough and was too high level to uncover all the issues.
The parent can't even set their own PIN code. For security they pick four random numbers that change every time. Then they just ask you to punch in the numerals for something like "one eight seven four" and you put in "1874". Unless your kid is really young or really dumb, there's no point.
The author actually talks about installing stuff on a live circuit while they explain how the system is terrible and doesn't work.
If you don't know enough to kill the circuit at the breaker before you start stripping wires, you are not only unqualified to do the work, you are risking injury up to and including death.
As much as I'm sure you're right, I think this is a great way to perform advertising. No flash animations, no autoplay video or sound clips, no clickbait... Just pure data-driven performance benchmarking. It's like they're saying "Let's attract tech-savvy customers by publishing something that will actually be informative and/or interesting to them, and then maybe some of them will be interested in what we sell" I can totally get behind this form of marketing!
It's effective. They're still my first recommendation to friends and family even though I've moved to a competitor (needed Linux support).
16GB ECC only costs a little over $100. You can way, way beat that price if you build your own.
I built a 4U rack with 12 hot swap bays, a quad core Haswell, 32 GB of ECC RAM for about that price, all up less drives. That includes an 8 SATA3 PCIe x8 card as well as 10 SATA3 built in to the motherboard.
I run FreeBSD 10 on it with ZFS. Why settle for a repackaged FreeBSD, way out of date, when you can use the real thing? They are both free.
The management UI.
I was actually saying the "importance" algorithms are probably more to to with advertising than what I want to see. And the threading already hides stuff at random, so I have no trust.
Yes, and I was attempting to explain that Inbox doesn't work that way at all.
Pardon, I thought they were implying Inbox would put advertising in the forefront and hide other, more relevant things from you in a similar fashion to some other products.
I don't think you've used Inbox yet. It's pretty good at filtering. Promo/spam is (mostly) correctly categorized and by default doesn't trigger a new email notification. Once or twice a day I sweep all the cruft away with a single click.
It's aimed at fulfilling an Inbox Zero model, which basically just means it presents an empty or nearly empty inbox as much as possible. It's actually quite good at doing it in an intuitive way.
Important things stick around, unimportant things are done away with very easily, but you can still get them back if you make a mistake or change your mind. Or set a reminder so that it goes away now but reappears later, like a snooze button. Personally I like it and have not used Gmail at all since I started using Inbox.
Most people don't care about what happens in some distant offshore country like USA.
Our terrible legislation has a tendency to later show up in other parts of the world.
Aeero was party to a crucial US Supreme Court case that was well-publicized in the mainstream media. Not our fault you live under a fucking rock, AC.
