Great idea. Record sales and profits for Makerbot, and a broken-down dust catcher in the corner of every classroom. Meanwhile, the teachers will still be sending notes home at the beginning of each school year asking for donations of paper, pens and pencils, and other basic supplies.
And I think of the wonders XEROX brought to us every day when I fire up my Star and telnet about the Internet.
This could become worse than the Dancing Plague of 1518 or the June Bug epidemic of 1962!
Worse, this shows every sign of being a hysterical contagion, capable of being transmitted over the Internet and infecting it's victims through contact with their computers, tablets, and smartphones!
The good news is that I know of a possible cure, and if I can reach my Kickstarter goal of $500,000, I can begin work on a treatment for the unfortunate victims...
Just yesterday, I picked up a water glass in a restaurant. I also used the silverware.
5 bucks to a busboy, and someone could have gotten a pretty clear set of my prints. Oops.
Worried about someone getting YOUR fingerprints? Wear gloves everywhere. Bring along a handkerchief to wipe everything down if you momentarily have the gloves off.
Low tech doesn't mean no tech.
What? No Bear McCreary soundtrack?
As a bonus, the robots can protect us from The Terrible Secret of Space.
I just hope they don't get all philosophical. Remember the lesson of Bomb #20...
> when and if sea level actually starts to rise... we'll talk
Water level measurements from the San Francisco gage (CA Station ID: 9414290) indicate that mean sea level rose by an average of 2.01 millimeters (mm) per year from 1897 to 2006, equivalent to a change of eight inches in the last century. The rate of rise has increased to about 3 mm per year over the past 15 years.
This is the oldest tidal guage in continuous operation in the United States, and is located near the Golden Gate.
Don't worry. The remaining system administrators will properly triage all the work among the remaining admins.
They'll just punt all the routine boring stuff like security audits and access control management to concentrate on the more urgent firefighting, like user requests that would otherwise hold things up, and more visible projects like those new TPS cover sheets.
Bah. They can "collate" all they like, but they are swamped by the false positive (and false negative) problem.
Of course, it sucks to be a false positive, but air travel is overrated...
Pardon me for interrupting the usual
Major items include
1) lack of "double insulated" construction in the internal transformer.
2) parts placement of line and USB side components on a single circuit board such that paths may be readily formed between line and USB sides from moisture, construction errors, or component failure.
3) inadequate margins between line side and USB side in overall layout of the charger internal components.
"Where have you lived where your neighbors shunned you for not belonging to the "local church"?"
Idaho Falls, Idaho. They don't much hold with all that whacky stuff the liberals down in Pocatello do. Boy, do I wish I were kidding.
And in other news, the bill has been declared DOA on arrival at the House of Representatives, where the Speaker of the House has announced that they intend to do their own thing, perhaps later this year, or possibly next year where a bill can be used as fodder for the 2014 campaigns.
Gah! Wrong article. So much for using a cat as a personal assistant...
The best part will be the weekly stack ranking and 360 degree review sessions.
"You are an A/10! Please vacate the house at once!"
Absolute not-hire. Even if the employee came to the company on their own, they couldn't extend an offer.
Correct. At one point I was told that I would have to quit my current job before I could be interviewed for a position at another of these companies. Naturally, applying for a position while newly unemployed would handicap my salary negotiating ability. The businesses viewed the anti-poaching deals as convenient for their HR operation and containing payroll costs. No pesky counter-offers...
