No, you don't. The associated baggage isn' t worth it.
Ugh.I know how that selective frequency hearing loss goes.
You may have, at least, a claim for tinnitus-if, of course, you have that. That is 10% and at least is something.
Why is it relevant? You already know the answer.
It wasn't censored, except by me.
THIS. I learned VB.net, C++, C# and a little bit of Python in my Mgt Info Systems courseload as electives because it wasn't offered as required at the time (2008) I have checked back and it is, now. I may not 'be' a coder, but in my current position knowing the basics of it helps me describe bug errors in our software testing to the people that can fix it in a manner that they understand better than "I clicked this button in the web app and it didnt' work....". I talk to my kids freely about my job and my 14 yr old son has an interest in Legos and game level design, and I stress the importance of knowing how to program, along with math, art, and basic graphic design elements so that he has some idea of what goes into making a program and interface work, rather than thinking its all magic smoke. I feel that knowing the use of basic Windows applications like Office, Excel, knowing a bit about Macros, and for g*ds sake knowing how to type are almost essential for most any entry level job now. Many of the managers older than me by about 10 years that I know (im 37) wouldnt be able to re-interview for my job as a mid level support tech with their demonstrated lack of knowledge of basic computing.
Why should my wife and I, very early Gmail adopters, sacrifice our emails that we have for 8 years because Gmail can't fix it? I don't understand how if my wife had her email in 2005, someone else that got it in 2011, who was child in 2005, could get it in the first place.
Same thing happened to me when I discharged out of the Army in 2002. I applied to the TSA and was not hired. One of the guys hired that day raped a teenage girl a few months later and then killed her. He was a Marine, too. We had the same clearance and the same screening, and my scores were a little better than his. *shrug*
You really don' t know much about the current state of corrections and criminal arrest, do you? In Nebraska, the maximum security prison has 2 entire housing units full of check kiters and people with non-injury DUIs serving time alongside murderers and rapists.
Who else better to spearhead the employment phase? They trained them, they can hire them. Thats the way that mentorship/apprenticeship is supposed to work.
Three is not 'a number of.....' except in the most hyperbolic sense of the phrase. Yes, its a number. No it is not an accurate description of the number of Tesla fires relative to any other car fire. The car itself is designed around the possibility of a battery breach-what more do people want? They built the car, designed failsafes around known possible risks that they could not engineer out. Guy walks out of burning car, that had the courtesy to warn him first. What more do people want?
We rarely use them. As to the supply chain/RMA process, the owner of the business requires the RMA to handled by the OEM and maintained barely enough JIT inventory to keep systems going out. He makes money in volume, thus I would spend many hours a week dealing with irate customers that did not want to wait weeks for their replacement hardware while OCZ pulled their head out. Incidentally, their RMA process was the same no matter what the supplier, so I was always fighting with the customer, the owner, and the OEM at the same time. Since the owner was the sole person in charge of the supply chain, I was in an untenable position, and left the job after 9 months for one much better, with a much larger established company-not one that is a primarily internet based reseller with a skeleton crew of actual employees.
As a former service manager to a laptop ODM/Integrator, their RMA process sucks, and our MTBF with their devices in custom laptops was drastically lower on every model. When you are dealing with gamers and power users that want to spend 2000-3000 dollars on a laptop, the last thing you need is faulty hardware weeks out of the box AND a 2-3 week + turnaround with OEM direct RMA's.
Most food in a grocery store is processed or manufactured. Most farmers type markets lack the ability or motivation to processes these types of payments. Where else would have have these people shop?
You can with PlayOn, as well.
