A slingshot with a scope will be much cheaper and I dare say more in use by the time these things go up....
The key is not meeting your SLA's and showing them why it's staff related... The old days of over inflating staff numbers so you're ready for any emergency is over in this day and age of cost cutting to keep profits up or costs down. Basically, people like you deserve better, and will never get it (hope I'm wrong there) because we're the real deal and not just lazy hack that doesn't give a crap about what their job entails. Most of my underlings won't do anything coming even close to troubleshooting at home since they do that at work, kind of a race car driver not driving his own home car....you get the picture.
They already HAVE given their toys so much control over their lives it's frightening.... I probably won't live long enough to see the cloud fail, and get shredded to bits over security, performance and privacy concerns but I hate it when I remember who runs the show, the money and corps, not the technologists that see the train heading for the brick wall. Technology might have been brought forth to make our lives better, it was indeed funded to create more wealth for the yada yada yada.... I need to retire soon but I'm not obsolescent quite yet.
Just get rid of all the useless security that's been added since you know when and carry on. Ben Franklin will be proud and the ghost of F@scism that now envelopps you will be dissipated.
Agreed but it's always been this way..... At least now I can meet "friends" of "friends" (Contacts versus acquaintances) without having to go out to mixers twice a week with people I'd sooner show the way out than invite over to my house for dinner.
Not my experience...... Get involved on Linked with a friend that is an Engineer, a musician, a banker, a Goverment employee and lawyer..... Next thing you'll notice is the job offers from friends of friends....
I feel a Gattaca moment coming on..... I'm on Linked, but I shudder when I see all the information available to employers and colleagues..... And I've also started to notice employment oppurtunities being linked to the "who knows you" from it too.... If you don't think the Intelligence community hasn't taken interested in our info there more so than FB, think again.
Processed Foods, lack of exercise and a general abandonement of traditional values (no, not religious). Six months spent on a farm eating foods unaltered by profit goals and working from dawn will do wonders for your figure.
We're better at getting the job done ?
Happy you do not suffer the curse... I do, it's been a lifelong affliction and no amount of medication is going to help me. People "off" themselves for so many different reasons that the thought of biological markers is funny to me. There is no doom switch component to be found, we all have have the capacity to feel despair and get cancer. Some people get better, some don't, some end.
Better, learn when to use it.
In other words, English is a crap language...noted. But for the rest of us that wish to entertain knowledgeable conversations, use of archaic or lesser used words is still enjoyable and a sign you relinquished the comic book phase of your life.
Yeah, nice words but history has a way of showing how badly it ends for those who are the first challengers to authority...they are literally forgotten for fear of their existence creating an uprising....kind of like those Black Panthers that almost all died in Jail for calling for a Black Homeland in the US, a piece of Utah segregrated. I think only one still lives, and is still incarserated as a Political Prisoner.
Then you do it....you shallow selfish brat..... Putting aside all delusions, we all have to live in some respect a "normal" life. It's rather impossible when you put yourself out there over the lenght of ten freaking years. My take is she will be back when she finds the "new medium". What's really pathetic is a "Heroine" being crapped on because she needs a break.
Need any more proof your elections are rigged ?
