To truly capitalize on mammoth transportation technology what we really need is the Mammoth Centipede.
You could in theory have boats drag a say 20 foot deep by hundreds of feet long "curtain" of the stuff and make it into a closed loop. Then you slowly compress it by winding it like a clock spring while being careful not to let any out. The oil would get thicker around the top and it's weight would gradually press the cleaner water downwards. You could then "scoop".
Maybe a large square shape with a moving wall would be easier.
I once did a sysadmin job for a, em, gentlemen's club. It was a script controlling an emergency button that wiped out the entire server if the cops arrive.
The last non-profit I worked for was a corrupt, badly run political horror. I left because I caught the boss committing tax fraud. She then gave me a bad review.
I mentioned to the board that I am a bit unhappy that I was penalised by the CEO considering that she is committing fraud. The board member asked me "she is committing WHAT??".
CEO lost her job. I still have a bad reference though.
That said, I sometimes do contracting for the new CEO and it IS a pleasant place to work, yes.
I don't want to work all day but the bank says pay, pay, pay
I live in Germany and I can ensure you that the people I work for do not value Software Engineers.
Tech workers are whiny bitches who think they know more than other people but have never left the mom's basement to actually see what other people do. I have of thos sitting right next to me, but he smells so bad I am not in the office that often.
CC is a horrible trap, BCC is not
She/He is an idiot because she/he used CC instead of BCC. Something that riles me in general.
Take out CC: in mails and only allow BCC:
I seriously hate it when my friends send a mail to me with some other people and my email address is not hand-delivered to the virus and spam-harvester infested horrors of my other friends. If ALL emails only went out by BCC this would not happen.
Mail server maintainers such as Postfix/Exim and such should band together and simply phase out CC and start treating the CC header as a BCC header. And then should begin rejecting mails with a CC with multiple email addresses in it outright. This would solve half of the world's spam problems in a few years too.
And whitelisting blocks ROP?

There is no doubt. The Koran is BS. No need to shed anything.
I love maps. I want to actually see all of it
As long as we're going to reinvent the wheel again, we might as well try making it round this time. - Mike Dennison
