What an amazing coincidence!
Those conditions sound just like the HP server factory I used to work at!

Thanks for the link. Looks pretty cool. Too bad about the grey on white choice, though.
Sales of what?
I had confused replication with duplication. Thanks for the heads up.
Each DVD has to be burned. They just burn them at very fast rates.
USB using vs3 have very high copy rates. They will just drop an ISO on them. It will actually be FASTER to create the USB and will probably result in a higher success rate than DVDs.
...how they have just discovered fresh, new and exiting 10 year old technology!
Would you two please keep it down? I'm trying to get the barmaid's attention for a pint and watch some footy and check my horses.
"...the handful who suffer become screaming headlines, while the million who benefit go unnoticed."
Handful? Have you NOT been paying attention to population numbers? Or math in general?
The UK population is currently at 64.1 MILLION. If just one percent of that population is in dire straits or suffering some consequence of bad policy, that's 640,000 people. That is not "a handful" in anyone's book. Anyone sane, that is.
Now extrapolate to the other nations numbers. At some point, it goes beyond "mere" suffering and straight into "barely holding back anarchy and government overthrow that will result in mass deaths". Like yours.
See the problem?
So the millions who benefit can still have it taken away by those kinds of destabilizing forces. Many, many a government and leader thought those who suffered could just eat cake.
Regarding the third choice: the finding is correct that above certain populations sizes, the voluntary system no longer works. That's why it's so rare.
People really are, for the most part, stupid. It's also why
psychopaths politicians and self made leaders are able to get away with the crimes they do.
Don't forget that 2 of those bombs had to be dropped before Japan surrendered.
What do you mean "if those psychopaths happen to be government leaders"? I'm damn pretty sure it's a job requirement.
In fact, I know it is.
Ah, I see someone else sees the flaw in his thinking.
I can think of several 100 million who have been affected in the last couple of years and 22 million just recently.
Not to mention ransomware is still very popular. Got an outbreak going around right now.
They abdicated nothing. It was taken from them by the Republicans over the decades the same way they crippled and defunded all the other watchdog agencies.
'Cause regulations and safety is be socialeest commeenism!
That's some serious stupid right there.
Modern pig farming is an abomination and nothing short of biological toxic superfund sites. Time to end it.
Exactly, mpinco. Most people have no idea what good sound is. We are surrounded by so much half-shit audio it's unbelievable and unlistenable starting with sound techs who are equally fucking clueless all the way to shit speakers being cranked way too hard and much gimmickry in-between.
The technology and quality is there and has been since the 1970 with the only real advances being miniaturization, yet bookshelf speakers, MP3 and Beats headphones are considered quality apparatuses for listening.
What utter shit.
You know it.
The rest of you have been warned.
MS is just doing what they do best: leaving people stuck with instantly useless, crippled shit.
It seems she may actually be what has been claimed: a troublemaker with no real skills. Or as some friends of mine put it, an "investment weasel" as her degrees are all in finance and law.
As for Reddit, what a useless pile of shit.
That's some damn fine poetic justice right there. Every goddamn Hollywood studio has fucked, scammed, cheated and stolen from everyone from writers to actors to directors to stage crew and investors.
Fuck them. Fuck them hard. They make politicians look honest.
Most western nations. I know, crazy innit?
Nailed it. I was just now thinking of their North American server factories.
The Sheriff of Nottingham persecutes his subjects in the name of security, but gets pwned anyway from an entirely different direction.
How's that domestic spying working for ya, bois?
Next up, the moral of Marie Antoinette will have to be learned again.
We, the IT grunts, own the world. Literally, There is not one damn human activity on the entire planet that IT doesn't touch. And certainly all the lovely things that make modern civilization.
So why are we letting the clueless fucks dictate to us? We OWN them dammit!
Happens every day. No joke.
They haz it.
"It's "Hahahaha", but pronounced with a German accent."
Well played AC. Well played.
BJ, Amazon is an American company. Get over yourself.
Exactly. Amazon is deliberately misleading. Which is of course, the American way.
^^ Agreed. Good tips as well.
But it sort of defeats the purpose, now doesn't it?
Too much work that should never have to happen in the first place. But I see a lot of that about these days. Somewhere in the past elegance and efficiency seemed to have been outlawed.
The word everyone is looking for and should be thinking about is "clutter."
You know, like the people who fill up their entire screen with icons? Can't get enough buttons on the car dashboards or icons on their phones? Yeah, they'll love this.
Bling is where it's at! Look at my bling, bitches!
Mob rule is always a bad idea. So is least common denominator.
Here we have both.
Pricey? That's a damn workstation for less than $1000 even after adding your own RAM and HDD. It's a steal!
It is nothing short of fucking amazing. Just found my next desktop.
But yeah, a second display out would be nice.
Absolutely spot on regarding the misinterpretations of Smith. I believe he would have been insulted and angry at how his ideas have been twisted to support the very principals and ideology he was against and trying to warn people about.
You have my sympathy Shadows Systems.
I used to remodel houses when I was younger. I would tell people that most of my work was spent "un-fucking" someone else's DIY stupidity.
Many, MANY people really shouldn't be allowed near any type of machinery, ever. That they have cars is the biggest mistake the human race ever made.
Dead on. Been exposed to every one of those scenarios.
But I can sum up all those words into just 3 letters: IBM.
You have been warned.
Just fucking gorgeous. Truly transcendent. Way ahead of its time in style.
Fuck them all. A pox on ALL their houses.
...no one can hear you starve.

BA DUMP BA!
Exactly. I've been in somewhat similar situations and left as fast as I could.
"The trouble here is that the company is - along with many others - overmanaged."
POTD. I see this everywhere.
Been out for several years now.
Gingerbread? You are several years behind the times. Also, only the top of the line Android devices can have their OS updated. The cheaper phones cannot, but for the price, it doesn't mater. Phone lifespan of 2 years is considered the maximum these days.
I'm still running Jelly Bean and it suits my needs just fine. I've set up and supported the latest, Lollipop 5.1. It's nice, but I didn't see any "must have" features I need.
Cost: 0 after rebate.
Carrier: 2nd tier brand name $40 per month all I can eat
Phone: ZTE white box. 16gb SD card that I still can't fill up.
Does all I need. Video, pics, email, weather, IM, maps, Internet, calendar, notes, clock, Google acct synch, news.
Apple is never going to beat that.
One day I will get to work at someplace that follows all those guidelines... but I'm not holding my breath.
Day job? Some people have all the luck. *sigh*
