Since Thanksgiving is non-secular holiday I would be interested to know how many religions forbid it.
I don't know about the religious aspect, but as an immigrant Thanksgiving isn't a holiday which means much to me personally aside from having a couple of days off. I mean I understand an appreciate the significance, and I have been lucky enough to visit families and experience a traditional Thanksgiving meal, but a family orientated holiday doesn't mean a lot when the rest of your family doesn't really care.
the absolutely insulting audacity to cut to commercial during the 7/7 London Bombing memorial.
That quite frankly is an appalling and shocking way for a national broadcaster to behave. Also I heard that the commentators didn't know who Sir Tim was and suggested that views Google him, did that really actually happen?
There is no safe way to drive without being able to see the road. Nobody that I know of considers it a good idea to have people who cannot see allowed to drive;
But I thought that the rumble strips on the side of the road were there so blind people knew when they had go too close to the edge? Have my friends been lying to me?
We started going more exotic places. Places that don't have cell signal or internet access. If they want to call a boat to the tune of $5-$10 a minute they're welcome to.
I hear that option. I've decided to go to Cuba for my next vacation, I'm in the UK but the rest of my team is in the US, as is our mail server. I figure that I won't be able to connect to the mail server even if I wanted to, and thus ensure 2 weeks of complete downtime
I agree with you on the 75%. I just changed from working in an office when not at customers to working from home, new job and no office in my country. It is incredibly easy to forget to stop working when working from home. If my wife is out for the evening she has started to phone me at about 7 and ask if I am still working, and if so might it not be a good idea to stop.
Also it's pretty nice to take 30 minutes at lunch time and actually have somewhere to go at relax with some food, a book and some peace and quiet
I miss read the summary at first and thought they are aiming for it to be as stable as Skype, I thought can't you aim a little higher than that guys.
Reminds me of someone talking about how they got 5 nines uptime with Windows, some else asked if they were aiming for 10% next year
I think the bigger impact for some people will be being even further ahead of the US in terms of timezone. At the moment 5 hours is okay, I work with people in the Middle East, Europe, UK and the east coast, from the UK and this is manageable at the moment. I don't start work until about 9 and then work till about 7 or 8 if needed. This gives me a good amount of overlap with everyone. If this goes ahead then I'm going to be have to work later into the evenings sometimes, just negating the increase in outside drinking time, and giving me less quality time with my wife who will be working normal UK hours.
Nice idea, but not something that is particularly convenient for myself
Alright, enough bickering. All I really want to know is, does it pack some serious power into a tiny case?
Yes. And yes, Also to be sure to be sure, yes.
I agree entirely. Let's not forget that sales is a phenomenally difficult profession to work in. I work as an SE, so I sit in between technology and sales by handling the technical parts of a sale for an enterprise software vendor (yes, I said enterprisy, yes I spend my days pulling my hair out). I am in awe of what these sales guys can do to navigate around a potential customer, figuring out who has budget, can make decisions, convincing them that we can add value and letting us get in to do a POC.
Also, it's a very feast or famine type of a job, exceed your quota and your laughing all the way to the bank, miss 2 quarters in a row and your out. I know people talk about lack of job security in any profession but I for these guys the cost of failure, your fault or not, is pretty high.
