Thanks for asking, hope this helps and guild you correctly:
Most people don't have a true, who gives a fuck what you say attitude and or my life does not depend on this job lifestyle so... /start/
well, here is my accountability chart.
note that the fault is
A = mine
B = not mine

a= I accept the blame for this.
keep mouth shut tight as can be, CxO will piss and rant then walk away

b= you can tell, being that the fault is not mine, BUT however, if you let me solve it, and I succeed, I want a 38% pay raise
CxO says " how about I let you keep your job"
me = you are funny, so about the problem and my pay raise, do I send this in a memo and CC personnel or whom?
shut up tight as can be

I've always been amazingly good at not having fear when asking for something that is justified ( or just a great gamble), if you got fired then they really did not see the value in you. BTW 38% is a great number to start with, weirdly enough people argue intensely or accept it as fact. I use it exclusively.

Funny that you say that. I do an accountability chart, so I know when it's my fault, when I am related to the fault, or when I am not accountable. Makes my life much easier. While we are all accountable to a point, I use it to know where the limits of liability are.

And while I know you are sarcastic, it's people that think in this manner that ruin people's lives for years. I Almost lost my company if it was not for my backup policy. I would do back-ups monthly myself on Saturday morning and retrieve the cassettes Sunday afternoon, take them home and store. an employee that I fired for doing something real bad did a time bomb on the payroll system and sent a system-wide delete. well long story short, 3 days of employee's working part time with note pads I got a basic restore done, then one system at a time did re-installs ... 2 weeks later we were back in business.

to this day I keep backup's of data, spare computer laptops just in case, and 1 month payroll and 1 month of expenses LOL never again I hope

if the business would have failed, it would have cost 38 people's employment and my business ruined.

safe to say, that I never let only 1 person handle backing up the systems ever

While I like her study, there was another study and reported here in /. back in 2000 - 2004
about AOL chat groups and how people and groups of people whom are on the fringes of
behavior. the study presented that people when encountering like-minded people seem
to see the fringe behaviour as socially acceptable.

real interesting, figured that everyone knew this by now, but like the lady said, " it was laughed off "

I've really looked at this problem, couple of issues came up
A) Why did they choose Tungsten Carbide instead of Eglin steel. just does not seem as effective
B) unless the design is conical in nature, 30% of Ball bearings are going towards earth ( could be a lot more if it's a ball design or tube design )
C) in any case, upon a Kessler Syndrome happening, space exploration would stop for 25 to 50 years unless someone comes up with a way to clean up space ( maybe a world wide concerted effort with lasers to clear a basic launch path. )

so the next step is for someone to create the clean up device.

A database of verified people and their family is a simple family kidnapping filter.
Bill made a lot on a deal, Bill is just a verified twitter user whom owns a store, brags about it business, and did a huge deal
that he's popping a bottle of wine.
Villain opens up the database and starts a review of reasonably near targets and finds Bill, Villian take his daughter and
Bill will have to pay $$$ to get his kid back ( which is most likely dead )

Those that buy data are trackable.
and facebook is troubling.
