That's an upgrade. I remember when it was all DOS on their terminals.
I used to work with a guy who was indispensable, and broke all the rules with impunity. Then, suddenly, one day he wasn't indispensable, and he was gone. Poof.
And you know what? We figured it out, replaced him, and got along fine.
Then my Moto Xis just as valuable. since the camera only shows squiggly lines. Not by choice, however.
C'mon, it's a joke, I laughed, you should laugh too.
BTW I once saw a show in Australia called "The Root Police". it was NOT what you think it should be...
I used to work at a Credit Union financing a Taxi Medallion purchase in New York.
This was a few years ago, and If I remember correctly, it was around US$1,000,000.
The real question is: How would you feel if , in whatever job you do for income, someone showed up to work for $0 hour for fun on the project, and they let you go?
Funny you should mention Nien Nunb, as I have a Filipino friend whose newborn baby had that same sorta look.
I never mentioned it, but I did laugh inside at it.
I was secretly hoping he'd have another kid and name him lando.
You know, the whole Fat Albert cartoon was conceived by Bill Cosby, who while a terrible role model the anti molestation movement, certainly was/is black.
You do have experience with technology, and how it continually fails, right?
I STILL, two years later, receive calls form India for the loser who had my cell number previously, telling me I qualify for loans I applied for, or from debt collectors.
I've even received a few calls from car dealers, telling me the car he was looking at was available.
I spent some time educating them as to the reliability of "Chris".
I've always felt that, as punishment, large corporations should be obligated to add a 5 second spot to their advertisement saying something embarrassing about themselves, such as "we're time warner, and we cheat our customers"
Wow, you beat me to pointing out the most ear gratingly bad quote of the piece.
They're the kind that you can run up and down. They're great, as long as:
1) you have a soft surface ( padded matt, etc) to stand on.
2) you have the ability to change it up, so you can sit for maybe an hour spaced throughout the day.
no problem adjusting to it.
I run VISTA, of all things. I know how to do maintenance, repairs, speed it up, defrag, turn off unnecessary programs, etc. But you know what? If I wanted to do this, I'd go to work and get paid for it.
I figure, load the system up with extra memory and faster drives, and not worry about it.
As of this writing, my system is something like 8 years old and ungodly slow. fifteen minute boot time.
I could take the time to clean it and carefully reinstall all the oddball programs I run on the thing, optimize it, etc.
But if I'm going to take the time to do that, I'll just get a new system anyway, it needs updating.
So they don't open the diplomatic bag, they just "hold" it for a few weeks because of a security issue. Anyone inside, not so lucky.
