I believe it started with SGI's IRIX desktop back in the 90s.
I used it on an Octane 2(?) for a few years. It was certainly ahead of its time.
Gaslighting occurs at the workplace in the form of bullies unscheduling things you’ve scheduled, misplacing files and other items that you are working on and co-workers micro-managing you and being particularly critical of what you do and keeping it under their surveillance. They are watching you too much, implying or blatantly saying that you are doing things wrong when, in fact, you are not. As you can see, this is a competitive maneuver, a way of making you look bad so that they look good;
In addition to above, I'd add Poring over every source-code commit, and then criticising it even if the criticism is contradictory to what he previously said.
Raising things through the official channels is out of the question, as is confronting the colleague in question directly as he is considered something of a superstar engineer who has been in the company for decades and has much more influence than any ordinary engineer.
So, what do slashdotters recommend (other than leaving or escalating via the official channels)?
Seriously? Quite a bit actually.
Then why don't you give at least one specific example.
Should $FOO go as OPEX in $BAR or CAPEX with a depreciation in $BAZ?
As hard as it is to believe, while a lot of the basic bookkeeping decisions are very rigidly structured, questions like the above are very much a matter of preference - it's possible for both paths to give the same basic fiscal result but for one path to be advantageous in one environment but not in another
Since you seem to know it, explain me this: I have studied lisp for a while, and I never actually found that magic that suddenly made me much better than I was before. "You can redefine the language!", the ads said. I still don't get it: yes, I can add new functions. I can do the same thing in pretty much _every single other language out there_. Yes, I can pass code blocks to other code blocks. I can do that in other languages too, and only occasionally use it for some small code improvement - it's not a silver bullet that redefines how I write software. So, where is it, that magic you people keep talking about?
In Lisp you can do more than add new functions or pass blocks of code around. Maybe you didn't learn it well.
Clinton has been accused of being in bed with big business. Trump is a card carrying member of big business.
a) It's not illegal for business to be in bed with other businesses.
b) It damn well *is* illegal for a politician to be in bed with big business.
I'm pretty sure both books are routinely ignored.
The one book directly forms the basis of government and law in many countries; it is, indeed, routinely followed to the letter.
[snipped anecdotal evidence]
It is not the religion, per se, that is the problem. It is fundamentalists or extremists who claim to be part of the religion that are the problem.
In case you hadn't noticed, the fundamentalist followers of one of the books number so few that they are hardly a rounding error, while the fundamentalist followers of the other book (while still in a minority) comprise a significant percentage of the followers.
Your point that both the books prescribes barbarism is correct, your conclusion that both the religions are practiced in an equally barbaric manner is not.
We shouldn't react to events like this by compounding the loss of life with a loss of rights, loss of dignity and loss of humanity.
You should repeat that quote the next time a shooter goes crazy and the vocal minority calls for gun bans.
Quran (5:51) - "O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people."
And I'm pretty sure that the Old Testament says that kids who sass their parents should be put to death. Not to mention the large number of "abominations" outside of being gay that are routinely ignored in Leviticus.
You are comparing a book that is routinely ignored with a book that is routinely followed.
How would you stop such autonomous cargo truck with no driver to shoot at?
Fortunately you have to be kind of an idiot to want to murder people like this anyway.
That fact doesn't lessen the threat; the world is filled with idiots, after all.
Wow. So, being verbally, physically, emotionally, and mentally abused by someone and trying to avoid others like that who abused you is being a loser?
And a cuck.
You're extremely bitter. Why is that?
men are rapidly following suit in dropping out of the relationship game because it is too dangerous.
Not being able to get a date is not quite the same as "dropping out of the relationship game".
Why do you care if young men don't want to commit? Your daughter having trouble being attracted to white knights?
