Fronters may get lunch, but they don't get coffee. Coffee is for closers only.
They made everybody move to the basement, and took away their red staplers.
It has electrolytes! You don't want water. Water comes from the toilet!
True, but those are the only places I know of where it can literally be "95 degrees with 95 percent humidity", i.e. *dewpoints* over 90F. It has to do with the high temperature of the surrounding seawater.
True story: When taking a summer class in Alabama, on a particularly hot sticky day, the Indian students were talking nostalgically about how it felt like home.
Two (or more) willing partners. Camera-equipped headsets small enough not to get in the way. Enhance the visuals as much or as little as you want. Augment your other senses as desired and technologically feasible.
THAT'S first-person shooting!
That was the point. You'd have to offer me the same kind of money to relocate, because I really don't want to run the risk of uprooting my family, only to get laid off in six months in a place where I have no roots. I've seen it happen too many times.
But this is a digression. The companies that complain they can't hire the talent they need are really saying that they can't afford to hire the talent they need. Hiring H-1Bs is a Band-Aid. The companies that complain that they can't even hire H-1Bs with the talent they need are forgetting that just as everywhere else, all the best Chinese and Indian workers are already taken.
One of the root causes of all this is that companies have mile-long must-have skill lists, and they expect to "install" new workers the way they install new PCs. Plug them in, turn them on, and they work starting right now. It used to be said that any new worker would take six months to a year to become truly productive. That hasn't changed, but somehow the industry has gone into a state of denial about it. The end result is even stupider: They spend more time looking for someone who is plug-compatible with the job than they would have spent hiring someone with the right basic skills and training them.
The other trick is that the law says that H-1Bs have to be paid "prevailing wages". But if you look at most large companies' salary bands, the bottom end of each band is often barely half of the top. So an H-1B can make, say, $60K, in the same position where the average employee makes $85K-$90K, with some making $110K, but since they're all within that position's stated salary range, the company is still not technically "underpaying" the H-1Bs.
What editor? When the entire publishing industry imploded, copy editors were the first to be laid off.
If I were an entity that had its own TLD, say
Or if you have a Netapp with a decent support contract: A disk fails while you're asleep. The filer notifies Netapp over a dedicated POTS line. Netapp overnights a new disk to you. You find out the next morning that the disk failed, via a call from the loading dock about a package for you. You pop in the new drive, activate one of your other hot spares, and configure the new drive as a new hot spare, all in less time than it took you to walk down to the loading dock and back.
 You don't have single disk failure alarms wake you up in the middle of the night because you configured your array to run with two failed disks.
It wasn't quaint *being* that American, it was embarrassing.
The boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens are *on* Long Island, so zero.
As large as possible time displayed when an alarm is going off with high contrast
Don't forget that a lot of old answering machines would cut you off without warning after something like 30 seconds. People got used to talking quickly.
