Comment Funny stuff they are smoking on AirFarce 1. (Score 1) 396

I had to laugh, actually out loud.... when reading "a U.S. cyberattack targeting Russia's election process" Russia's election process is even more predetermined that the US. In the US it's not "obvious" voter fraud, just a bunch of "Community Organizers" (occasionally from Chicago or maybe Kenya) who get a lot of votes from people who may or may not be dead. Bussed around by people who may be handing out food or money for expenses to "help: them vote. From my understanding in Russia many elections are 100% of votes cast go the same candidates that are government approved. In the US, many elections are determined way ahead of time by the people with all the money and power. I wouldn't be really surprised if the Demi-crooks and Republi-creeps didn't have it all set out before the election is held. I will still vote for a 3rd party candidate and so will most of the people I know. Especially in this election where both of the major party candidates are total crap. We have the choice between a Douche and a Turd Sandwich (Yes, a South Park reference)...

Comment Unused phone used for honeypot. (Score 1) 236

AT&T makes me pay for a phone line to my home that I don't use. It gets tons of political calls, I plan on forwarding that number to the FTCs main switchboard and see if they notice. If that doesn't work I'm going to start forwarding it to some other politician until they get the point. If I wanted to hear from Trump or Clinton or any other robocaller, I would call them. They don't need to call me. Robocalling is pointless and just makes me hate them both even more.

Comment I want to go back (Score 1) 765

I usually give a couple weeks notice, I've occasionally gotten counter-offers but never accepted. When asked I have given feedback. For a couple of companies where I truly loved working for I gave them as much notice as possible and turned over 100% of what I knew. I couldn't give them my experience but I did give them knowledge. At one company I was contracting for, by doing this I amazed my boss at how much information I had collected over the years. She did try to arrange my employment either as a direct hire or another contract house (with the company absorbing the penalty) but neither could come close to match the learning opportunity that I was being given. If either of those places had an opening that would support what I need to make I would go back in a hearbeat, and I know they would love to have me. I do love the company that I work for now (I might be a contractor but the company I am at now treats us as employees).
