The canning, processing, preserving, freezing, drying, marketing, storing, packing for shipment or distribution of:

        (1) Agricultural produce;

        (2) Meat and fish products; and

        (3) Perishable foods.

All of the exempted activities are gerunds. If the writers wanted the list of exemptions to include distributing, it would have also been written as a the gerund distributing.

Since the "Donald Trump is a narcissistic, childish, moron" theory explains all of his behavior, I don't see the need to develop a more elaborate theory.

Try to find anything that cannot be explained that way.

Comment Wait, what? (Score 3, Interesting) 229

One of the easiest ways to evaluate a developer is keeping a tab on the amount of value they provide to a business.

That's easy? OK, problem solved.

But the problem with this approach is that the nature of software development does not make it easy to measure the value a single developer brings

Wait, it's not easy?

I don't have experience with OpenBSD and NetBSD, but for FreeBSD, dual-booting with Linux should be relatively straightforward.

I guess your issue is a mismatch between BIOS/MBR and EFI/GPT partitions tables. In "guided" partitioning, FreeBSD uses GPT exclusively. If you had installed Linux first on a MBR, it won't work and you have to go in manual partitioning. You only need a single partition (FreeBSD calls them slices), and then you can sub-partition that slice (typically for a simple setup, a few GB in /, whatever you want as swap, and the remaining space in /usr, /home being a symlink to /usr/home)

If you install FreeBSD first, Linux should gladly accept GPT.

If, for some reason, you use MBR but your disk once contained a GPT, the FreeBSD installer can get confused by a secondary GPT at the end of the disk (at least it was in FreeBSD ... 9, IIRC)

You might also want to modify your BIOS settings and choose (U)EFI boot method instead of BIOS/Legacy (if available).
