My bank (not named to protect the guilty) has the following restrictions on password:
Name and shame away! Stupid password restrictions like that is a telltale sign that they are storing your password in plain text. Probably on some really arcane or buggy system if it doesn't even handle case-sensitivity correctly. The only way that companies are going to get their act together is if customers change to a competitor because they are fed up with crappy account security.
Now, wait a minute. Seems to me this isn't bad at all. I don't know that this is "down" from the past at all... in the radio days (not very long ago), 0.1 cents per play would have been a pretty good return.
Really? Do you have any reference for that preposterous statement? If an artist wants to make minimum wage at about $8/hour that would entail 64 / 0.001 = 64 000 radio plays per day. Assuming an average song length of 3.5 minutes, you would need 156 radio stations ((64000 * 3.5) / (24 * 60)) doing nothing except playing this one artists music non-stop 24h per day.
Getting laid is NOT as hard as people make it out to be...you just have to have confidence and know how to talk to women (most of the times, just means have them to talk about themselves)...go out a couple times and you're laid.
If it's that easy, then why the hell are you wasting time telling us the secret on slashdot? Get out there and start your own pickup school that actually works and you can make BILLIONS.
I'm separated, and I can't think of any good reasons to be in a relationship again.
I hear what you are saying about longer days. But then, how long was my grandfather's "farm day" where all the work on the farm was manual, no electricity, no refrigeration, and all the work was done by man and mule?
Much shorter than yours. Keep in mind that without electricity, it's pointless to work after dark and you can't till fields in freezing weather. Your grandfather would also work with his friends and family, not strangers at the office you happen to share a skillset with. He would also stop working when there was no more chores to do, while when you are done with your work, your boss will just pile on more keeping you busy until your hours is up. He also exercised some control over when to do what work, in what order and how to do it. Stuff that your boss nowadays have control over. Technology has given us a lot, but to wage slavery there is no end in sight.
