I believe this to be a trait for many government departments/agencies the world over.
My best teacher, also now my friend loves his summers off.
He is experienced, knows his stuff and basically recycles the same content/lesson plans each year and only updates to improve on what did/didn't work so well, changes in curriculum and administration (as well as to relieve boredom).
On our last conversation, there is a high chance that my son will be in his class this year and from what I have spoken with my teacher friend about - I should recognise a fair bit of the work he has to complete.
Ahh The cays of my Amiga, where DF0 would consistently check for a disk.
It would get so annoying, I would often throw a blank floppy in there just to shut it up.
This new clock can keep perfect time for 5 billion years.
"It's about the whole, entire age of the earth," says Jun Ye, the scientist here at JILA who built this clock. "Our aim is that we'll have a clock that, during the entire age of the universe, would not have lost a second."
But this new clock has run into a big problem: This thing we call time doesn't tick at the same rate everywhere in the universe. Or even on our planet.
Right now, on the top of Mount Everest, time is passing just a little bit faster than it is in Death Valley. That's because speed at which time passes depends on the strength of gravity. Einstein himself discovered this dependence as part of his theory of relativity, and it is a very real effect.
The relative nature of time isn't just something seen in the extreme. If you take a clock off the floor, and hang it on the wall, Ye says, "the time will speed up by about one part in 1016."
That is a sliver of a second. But this isn't some effect of gravity on the clock's machinery. Time itself is flowing more quickly on the wall than on the floor. These differences didn't really matter until now. But this new clock is so sensitive, little changes in height throw it way off. Lift it just a couple of centimeters, Ye says, "and you will start to see that difference."
This new clock can sense the pace of time speeding up as it moves inch by inch away from the earth's core."

Church leaders advocate public health policies (like abstinence) that demonstrably do not work in spite of copious scientific evidence showing that they do not work.
Not a scientist here
Now, I would concede that abstinence often doesn't occur because people generally like to fuck. Maybe I am just being a bit too picky today..
When deciding what to buy I seek ads out.
Funny, I use search engines and read review sites.
I sometimes have the problem of trying to find review sites that aren't just ads. All too often the "article" is just lifted from the sales brochure.
Agreed, There is little worse than people who get offended just because they think that they should be offended. This goes doubly so for people getting offended on behalf of others
I love lotus notes. . Long live the Domino server!
What started as an office desk decoration a few years ago has turned into a collection of over 40 Mr Potato Head dolls and variants. . I don't go looking for obscure and past potatoes, rather buy new ones/novel ones as they pop up.
Wow, don't know that. It makes my other post potentially redundant.
If they are using an internal WinModem, drivers and the ability to access this over linux may be severely limited. I would suggest if their only access point is a good old fashioned screeching modem that they get brought an external one (assuming that they don't already have one)
And a techie's definition of 'working', i.e. drinking coffee and reading slashdot is still the same too.
You mean I am not paid to do *this*?
That was the most evil thing I have done. Scored 10.
