People will submit themselves to horrible abuse for rewards. You can find a good example right here. Got to feed those competitive needs you know!
To use the building analog, did they use an architect to design the building? Did they have engineers inspect the drawings to ensure that it won't fall down? Did they inspect the quality of their materials to ensure that could support their specifications? Or he just ask you to keep piling bricks and was shocked that bricks were falling out at the bottom?
Is code just a bunch of bricks? Bricks are pretty simple, they don't have to do anything but exist. Code is logic, and given some specifications you write something and hope the specs were close. Should you be blamed if we ask you to add 2 numbers together and complains about errors when he uses strings instead?
If your boss is asking you to work on your own time because of something like this, I would find a new boss. He is just trying to pass the blame and you would be a sucker to accept it.
I forgot to include the Sarcasm tag.
And for being lazy, you can tell my the huge amount of debt the countries carry
If this were done by the previous management, the stock price would have gone up and M. Dell would not have been able to purchase the company. Hence, leaving the company limping along was probably the plan all along.
Just another way management can screw over the stockholders.
Patent trolls had gotten to the point of just threatening people and winning because only the biggest players could defend themselves. Couple this with the fact the PTO giving out dubious patents, and the low cost of suing someone how can things get any worse?
I notice that some try to appeal to the User's better nature to let the Ads on through. I wonder if perhaps, I don't know, PAYING the user to accept Ads should be part of the solution. Nothing like money to drive viewership!
I was thinking more along the lines of "if you are condensing your learning into a few intense hours of study", drugs may help you get through those few hours. The problem is you really did not learn much because you are not going to retain it.
The other problem with taking drugs can help you in the short-term, but it is sort of defeats the purpose. You are able to perform well for a short period but you are not able to retain the knowledge very well and you are not being educated so much as you are learning how to cram.
I assume that if you are in the 30's going to school you are trying to get an education, not learn how to cram for tests.
I guess the real question is under what conditions are you able to perform well? I think you will need to identify those conditions and focus upont working in those conditions. You may need to work with teachers to develop a schedule which you can work under.
You just may not be able to do well under a normal classroom conditions, and you will need to address that. Good teachers will help where they can and bad teachers will be inflexible, you may need to avoid those.
It is funny because you have basically referred to Robot Santa Claus
Just because someone is a Democrat, does not make one a liberal.
I have gotten fines from the IRS, and it was always because I missed something and it was my fault. Sometimes it took a little work to figure out what the problem was, and even called them up when I was trying to figure it out. The people were never rude and always helpful.
Was I happy with it? No, who really wants to admit they made a mistake and have to pay to fix it? No many people, but you know what? I sucked up my ego, which all it really was, and admitted my mistake and paid up.
For all the scorn people heap on the IRS, they do a very good job, especially considering all the crap they get from anyone who seems them as an easy dog to kick.
As soon as executives are financially responsible for the money they lose or swindle from customers.
