Daringfireball for a laugh. You should seriously be cautious of any site without comments. Most of his content doesn't stand up to even mild criticism.
there isn't one cable anywhere you could unplug that would take them both offline.
I didn't say they were invulnerable. Calm down.
Have you ever met anyone who worked in corporate IT? As someone who works in corporate IT let me tell you, 99% of them are idiots. And that's being polite. Your data isn't any safer in their hands than Google's.
We can make this very simple: the problem is foods with a high glycemic load.
'When [managers] say they are suggesting you do something, it's not really a suggestion â" it is an order disguised as a suggestion. Plain-speaking is a lost art at big companies and corporate double talk is the name of the game.'
It's brainstorming. I do this all the time. Employee presents a problem, I say "well I'd probably do X". Now you can either go do X or go "well I was thinking of doing Y, what about that?". Then we can have a discussion about it. Keep in mind that when you ask your manager a question, his job is to make decisions and to do it quickly.
BGs was only one part of it. High end guilds were raiding using the combat routines. A number of progression guilds broke up entirely because 90% of their roster is banned. It was also being used in arenas (look up "Gladiator Suite" on the honorbuddy forums). People were playing literally in gladiator range (2700+ arena rating) using the bot. It had perfect DPS rotations, CC'd, used cooldowns correctly and could perfectly kick any cast. It was also being used to farm professions (herb, mining, etc) and pretty much any other aspect of the game. Personally, I leveled one of every class to 100, including multiples of some classes (for arena purposes, so I could play with less skilled friends without affecting my rating).
