Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
You can't be serious.
They are our sister planets, each expressing an ultimate degree to which things can go, and with what we've been discovering recently, remarkably little 'input'.
Death by starvation or some fucking infection or some bullshit in a desolate world forced to fight mortally for cans of beans? No thanks, prefer the former. So, please, vaporization thanks. Even a bio/freak-virus attack which kills in a day or two time would suffice.
Whenever I need to completely switch gears from one project to the next (like going from Drupal into Zend Framework), I will require at least two weeks of downtime (although I would never dare admit to it to my manager). It's unavoidable. It's like my brain is jammed between channels and no matter how much I beat the horse, it will be this way while my neurons rearrange themselves. Then, one sunny day, bing it's all realigned and reprogrammed and I'm off to the productive races.
Wish there were medical-creative downtime available....
Sorry for the cynical missive.
is there any other way to teach these lazy monopolistic companies anything?
