Running through Detroit during the daytime is risky enough... At night? I might as well take a bar of soap and a tub of petroleum jelly with me!
SAP can handle payroll, and some organizations actually use that functionality. Let me know who you've found that kept their job after messing up payroll (who isn't also sleeping with the boss).
Enterprise or not... you're toast.
I can play the same game...
Many, if not most, IT initiatives with homebrew tech succeed. It's hurts when it doesn't pays off, but almost always it is under budget and satisfies the unique requirements of the business. If the CEO got unlucky, too bad for him, but his CIO shouldn't be sitting in the big chair if he didn't at least recommend doing it in house.
Unfortunately statements like these are easy to reword the exact opposite and not sound crazy. If you look at Gartner's statistics, they have a pretty even split between successful and failed implementations. From my experience, the outcome is completely dependent on the personnel. If you get people that are intelligent and want it to succeed in leadership roles (and they get along with each other), you'll have a lot better chance than having people who are coming for a huge paycheck and flying home on a Thursday afternoon.
Since Tesla probably has a pretty intelligent staff, I'm not surprised that they would succeed.
It's pretty difficult to keep good talent at organizations. Especially when you get into the grind of a single goal and day in and day out it's the same thing.
Having a boss that might step in 1 day that and say hey, instead of working on that problem you've been on for a while, how about you work on making this car into a submarine. Thanks.
That would be awesome, adds spice into the mix, and helps make people reconsider ever wanting to leave their organization.
Hopefully that's the motivation behind this moreso than the I'm farting so much money now I can't find enough ways to spend it kind of thing!
It must be encrypted and the only way for the nsa to get it is to have it unencrypted and sent over the wire via ssl!!!
The problem with undeploying would be the whole 20/20 hindsight. I wouldn't be able to tell you what would have happened if the troops weren't there. I can say, though, when things get real bad and the U.S. doesn't get involved, then it get's dissed by other countries for not doing anything. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. In the end though, you'd look more horrible for considering finances over lives.
Not only was the long weekend blamed, but also poor internet connection availability. I had flashbacks during the whole article of people claiming their dog ate their homework. It was just a spewfest of any possible explanation that could avoid saying "You know what? We're sorry. We knee-jerked a reaction and that wasn't appropriate."
Instead of the Steisand effect, we'll need a Mariette effect. That's when you just make up implausible excuses to diminish an improperly handled situation.
The interwebs are getting clogged, I think a squirrel is gnawing on my telephone wires... cable modem cutting out... space debris is starting to block satellite reception... Gardener cut the power to my house... Swamp gas...
My rule is that I'm fine with contradictions being pointed out, or straw man arguments. What I'm not fine with is Slashdot being used as a soap box for a select set of individuals that are trying to excite some type of discussion through spreading of opinions as if they're an authority on the matter. That can be left to the comment section of the news much the same as this comment. My personal preference is that I would never submit a story, which is really just an opinion article of my own, to a site such as this. That activity is better left off to a blog and then someone else can submit my blog to this site.
If Slashdot is a blog, I'll stop visiting.
I'd like to rate this story down. There's no reason this person's perspective is of any stature to warrant being put on the front page of a site like this.
That also just lowers the credibility of Yahoo. They have to have their own employees pay for things in order to operate... Sounds like a startup.
It seems to me you just fell into the same pitfall you were arguing against. Your 3rd party real alternative must be better than the 2 or 3 fake parties... why? If you're talking about Ron Paul... he was the one I was alluding to as bat$4:^ crazy.
I haven't come across a presidential candidate yet that I've really thought.. now that's the guy/gal that can get us to where we need to be. Those people don't run for office, because they aren't politicians.
3D Universe?... I'm not sure how I can type this message without at least some time
Either that or it's because the 3rd party is bat$4:^ crazy as well.
I'll see you're isolated networks and raise you this:
As for write protecting... If it has ram, it'll be written to.
None of those parties are ones that I think would improve the situation at all. We'd trade 1 set of problems for another.
I'd rather see scientists and professors (non-law) start running for office. Independents, no parties.
