Pensions? Social Security? Really, at my age, I will never have a pension when I reach old age. It's what I can save away in my retirement funds and build into a nest egg.

I don't expect to receive any free govt. hand outs. Nor do I expect to need it.

Comment Documentation? Wiki? (Score 3, Insightful) 203

Sounds like a total failure to document anything....

Everywhere I've worked in the past few jobs I've had, processes and procedures and anything important about business process has to be documented on a wiki (or more recently, everyone seems to have gone to confluence) and documenation is considered REALLY important.

Sounds like the places I've worked have learned the value of employee knowledge and suffered from employees leaving with vital knowledge not documented.

You either work for either a really tiny organisation, or a business that just hasn't suffered through an important person with a lot of important knowledge leaving.

Oh well. Their problem.

Move on and forget your current employer.

Firefox is NOT an option. I tried going back to it a few times too, but NOPE. Ever since Firefox 3.6 it has been utter garbage.

As for NPAPI... its the ye olde Netscape Plugin API from the 90s. It HAS to go. Chrome actually dropped NPAPI a long time ago on other OS's (Linux, anyway, I think OSX too) but kept it around quite a bit longer on WIndows but it really is time for it to go.

I actually did have some pain when Chrome dropped NPAPI support on Linux (we use Linux as our desktops the last 3 employers I've had) but eh, managed to survive without it.

Good riddance to Chrome and Java browser plugins. Really.

Mommy, what happens to your files when you die?
