Betteridge's law of headlines says "No", and that's good enough for me.
Hey, I hardly ever press the power button, lets get rid of that one.
If you want to make good money working from home, development is what you do.
There are better ways to make money in the city. Working remotely is not a perk, it is THE perk.
If she's a social justice warrior, that is plenty reason not to hire her. May as well set fire to your own offices, it'd be less painful.
Honestly, OSX is the worst offender of the lot.
I use my computer to do work, not surf the net and look at pictures of cats.
Working with OSX is like working on your car in your garage, and you've got all the tools you need spread out within arms reach so you can quickly grab them as you need them.
Only, you have an obsessive compulsive spouse who absolutely NEEDS everything to look clean and pretty in case some third party is watching, and every time you set down a tool and pick up another one, she picks it up off the floor and puts it away.
It's not a technical problem. It's a problem of faulty design. They let a bunch of graphic designers turn my goddamned hammer into a flower, and it's very pretty, but I can't drive a nail with it, and, somehow, they convinced EVERY manufacturer of hammers to follow in their footsteps, so I'm forced to look for a brick, because ALL the tools I relied on to do my job are BROKEN.
I just want my ugly, greasy toolbox back, but no one makes them any more.
I used to have a great deal of interest in my computers, but after Windows 8, OSX, Gnome 3 and Unity, I really don't like computers any more, so I just do what's necessary to pay the bills.
If I'm the one with the communications infrastructure and I let you use it to communicate, what you say reflects on me because I built your podium.
Free speech does not entitle you to someone elses podium.
Cold weather sucks. I don't own costal property. I'm glad the world is getting warmer. I hope it continues. It will increase the carrying capacity of the planet by making food easier to grow. I see no downside.
He gave you permission to copy his stuff if you like. He just doesn't feel right selling a music stream to you because he feels it's a rip off. For you. I doubt he needs your money at this point.
Have you ever had a LEGO brick turn squishy on you? Because that's what they're made of, ABS plastic.
It's a plenty tough enough material that I used it to manufacture parts for a geodesic dome for outdoor use as a greenhouse, and it held up fine. I also manufactured gears for a friends high end RC car after the manufacturer had gone out of business. Those gears see a lot of stress, and they held up fine.
ABS is a great material, and so is PLA.
Need an STD biostamp, something that, when you see it, you know the person is safe.
I use a money clip instead of a wallet. It matches my sunglasses. And I always carry a harmonica. Other than that, boring stuff... keys, fob, phone, earbuds, bank card, credit card, identification, lighter, cigarettes, and sometimes a cigar cutter.
The problem boils down to Ego. If you've got one, then you're the problem.
The manager who wants to be treated with respect beyond that due their role is just as bad as the employee who wants to be treated with respect beyond their role.
Are you managing people, or projects?
I think the problem is, modern managers are expected to herd cats.
The problem isn't the managers, it's the cats.
The do retire. Think big picture for a minute?
