Comment loaded question (Score 2) 101

Are remote software teams more productive than what? Than local software teams? That is an impossible question to answer without knowing much more about the teams, isn't it?

OTOH as a person running a software business with different types of teams (I have local, I have remote teams) I can say that as long as there is somebody in the remote team capable of understanding the requirement at the business level and capable of managing the team there shouldn't be any reasons for the remote team to be less productive.

Unfortunately as all things in life this also is not as simple, it is very difficult to ensure that the remote team understands the business really well, so rather than trying to achieve the unachievable you have to give out requirements in short, easier to manage portions and you have to coordinate daily.

after 8 years of Obama we have more racial tension than ever before

No, we don't. All of that racial tension you're seeing was already there. What happened was that having a black president encouraged black Americans to speak up about the ways in which they're systematically oppressed, which means that you are now more aware of the existing racial tension.

Hillary did exactly that, but the left doesn't seem concerned that they are constantly hypocrites. She had an unsecured device that they told her not to use, and she did anyways. Likely was hacked while she was in Russia.

Yes. That's a terrible breach of security when a Secretary of State does it.

It's about a hundred times worse when a President does it.

I based the estimate on $5o for a cartridge that prints an average of 3,000 pages. A color laser would be nice, but as you say, far more expensive both in up-front costs and toner. And changing toner in a color printer is a PITA, at least the ones at work were.

I am fascinated by all this puke inducing collectivism and more importantly by the arms race between those, who want to steal and those who are stolen from. What is most fascinating is the mental acrobatics required not to see how the collectivist theft is destroying the economy and society, it is very much like the climate change denial, the same processes are at work I think.

Draconian budget cuts - what a fascinating turn of a phrase. Completely political, completely disregarding reality, the opposite of what the government Ilis actually doing, completely missingvthe point, but used as one of those proverbial dog whistles and used fairly successfully at that.

I am utterly fascinated to see what it will look like when the USA (or a large enough European state, or Japan) actually run out of cheap credit, it is a morbid type of curiosity in me, I know it is a train wreck that is very deadly and ugly, but I cannot take my eyes away, it is like a magnet, I want to see how the last century of collectivist policy of theft and destruction of individual freedoms at the hands of th e mob turns back against that very mob. The shitstorm is going to be epic! Fascinating

Yeah, yeah, yeah, let's do that, let's just so that. I want to see all of these attempts at stealing from fully automated businesses, I have morbid type of curiosity, which makes me wonder and muse about all the ways that company owners will find and use to get around all this collectivist theft. It is always interesting to observe arms races, this is probably the ultimate arms race: those who want to steal vs those who produce. It is fascinating.
