Bulgarian doesn't even note emphasis in the writing, and also not the length of the vowels, thus it doesn't have a fully written pronounciation. It is still possible to follow the full set of pronounciation rules in Bulgarian and still read a text completely non-understandable for a native speaker.
There are no languages where grammar and pronounciation rules are completely consistent. Spanish and Indonesian come close with regards to grammar, and Dutch and Czech, when it comes to spelling vs. pronounciation, but there just is no language which is completely consistent. Even artificial languages like Esperanto have their inconsistencies.
And still, the dismissive, pejoratively used term "Operator of Interfaces" is simply deplaced and shows that the user of the term himself has not much clue about an IT environment, otherwise he wouldn't think this would be in any way pejorative.
I am not sure if this is an attempt at being ironic.
Actually, the firewall business will be spun off into a subsidary with all assets and liabilities, and then the subsidary files for Chapter 11 and subsequently for Chapter 7. And no hole is fixed because there is no business case.
All of the folks in IT are Operators of Interfaces. Which is nothing bad at all. If you aren't able to send 3.3 V directly from your fingertips, you need an interface to operate anything in a computer. Buttons, plugs, everything labelled I/O, shells, commands are interfaces.
So you were saying?
Oh, my mother also has the herpes since birth. It runs in the family, so to say.
I got herpes already at birth. Pray tell me, o wise Anonymous Coward, how I could have possibly avoided it. (Herpes is a STD in just the same sense that the Common Cold is a STD. It can also be transmitted through sexual contact, but this is not their main infection vector.)
I was just browsing my own business mail, and I found that 90% of them don't belong in public, because they are talking about customer installations (information which belongs to the customer, not us) or about internal administration and HR (like courses, oncall schedules, sick leaves, vacations). Only 1% are directly about what I am doing, like solution concepts, scripts or possible configurations. I can imagine that this is not so much different from most other people's business email.
There is lots of administrative stuff, human resources details, meeting arrangements and much more in daily mails, which all belong to your work, and none of them belongs into the public.
Asking for vacation, sending in sick leave requests etc.pp. is all business, and none of them belongs to the public.
Actually, "civilisation" is derived from "civitas" (town), thus originally a civilisation has started to live in or around cities, which has happened already during the Copper Age. There are even Late Stone Age towns.
Actually, they don't. There have been situations where a seed company was collecting seeds of traditional crops, selecting the ones with the most marketable potential, patenting and reselling them again and suing the farmers they got the seed from originally from infringing the patent on the seeds and prevailing.
Curse the judges that handed down the verdict and the laws that allowed the company to prevail, but currently there is nothing that prevents a company from doing the same again and again.
In a certain way they are, if you have a contract with them allowing them to do so.
Contracts have not to be signed. It is sufficient if both parties have an agreement. The signed, written form makes it more easy to prove afterwards which conditions were agreed upon, but it is no requirement.
