Heck, even McDonalds uses icons on it's cash registers now. It's to tough to read these days. It's like when they replace the "Walk/Don't Walk" signs with the pictures of walking, or staying put.
The grenade, 'cause we, as a society, have already pulled the pin.
My Dog's better than your dog...
My Porn's better than yours.
My Porn's better 'cause I surf (internet browser)
My Porn's better than yours.
Paris, for the paraphrase, and for the reality of the situation.
A Tech 'till the End
"I learned a long time ago that one note can go a long way if it's the right one," he said in 2002, "and it will probably whip the guy with 20 notes." /l. Paul (oh, and some guitar thing and that multi-track recording get-up that he put together.)
The True Value of a Degree
Is that it shows you slugged it out for four years (longevity), showed up for the tests (project deadlines), and didn't get thrown out (not an HR problem). Beyond that, ehh.... The ale, 'cause that's where I spent most of collage.
Is humping my leg again, and my daughter thought it was funny and videotaped it. God, now I'm going to jail forever. I hope the dog is happy.
People are currently using big magnets to slow down their meters. So the technology changes, and hey! A big magnet may still do the job.
The "unexpected meeting" script.
I like AC's thought, but I just have a script that I can activate whenever there's an unexpected meeting. Nothing bad on the network, but it does delete all of my working files (backed up off-site, of course).
How to do it
If there is an accepted, quantifiable set of metrics that employees can be evaluated on, I know of companies that do this to 10% each year. On the other hand, if you've got a bunch of people that you just don't like, you have to lay them off with full notification and compensation. (I love 'right to work' states). My coat, because for some reason, I'm going to find myself in the bottom 10%.
Never forget the power...
of a hundred million Chinamen. Look at what they accomplished to host the Olympics. OK, so it's a totalitarian state, BUT; they do have the ability to get things done. And just think if they all jumped up and down at the same time. The helicopter 'cause after jumping up and down, they have to follow up.
So what's 1.5 tonns?
Keep in mind that today's M1 battle tanks weigh in at about 62 tons. And they go reallly fast (best off-road vehicle that I know). Now the kit (generator, etc) could be mounted in a supplementary vehicle, but it's kind of like an artillery or even a machine gun crew (some coordination required).
Not a flame, but simply the fires of war.
When did anyone?
For all the AC postings claiming bullshit and vested interest; Apparently you are not up to speed on the current El Reg tariffs. Of course they're for sale, and they're very up-front about it. They've posted their tariffs numerous times. If you don't like it, get over it. Mine's handing you your coat on the way out.
Don't know about everyone else, but...
This article is going to my leadership 'chain'. "Hey, look! They're working on software to replace me. I'll keep up on the story and let you know when I can be replaced."
Nice to have another few (cough/20) years in the job. Mine's the one being hung up as I settle into my desk.
eBay's Next Big Service?
I wonder (really) what the auction house liabilities are. For example, would Christie's or Sotheby's held libel for forgerys sold at auction if they had not apprised and certified the works themselves? Certifying auctions could become big business for eBay.
The coat, cause I've left. Could have been the black helicopter for eBay.
Do we really need that many seats between the world capitols and Dubai? Choppers, 'cause that's what the rich folk really use. But it sounds like a bitchin network on the plane. Ohhhh.... the fun that could be had with that.
Nahhh..... They just strip the company, declare bankruptcy, exercise hidden assets, and head to Bermuda.
Paris, 'cause she'll be there for them.
But will the sponsers pay me?
On-line racing games, with my car decked out with addys like NASCAR? Or maybe just a little 'swoosh' on my WOW outfit?
Paris, 'cause it's all about marketing...
Have you ever played on SimNet
Back in '92, there was a warehouse filled with a battalion of tank simulators (4 crew in each), with all of the electronics and visuals. This was integrated with a nearby base that had the same for helicopters. You want to talk about a MORPG.
'course you had to be in the service, or you'd get shot within 10 feet of the door.
Why Doesn't it have a tail?
BECAUSE IT'S COMING RIGHT AT US!!!!
The countdown has begun.
Can I use Family Locater?
It sounds like this is an add-on to the 10$ a month Family Locater service. If someone is paranoid enough to track their kids, I'm sure they want this information also. BTW, can I use Family Locater for my 150 employees that are carrying Sprint phones? I wonder what they're doing after-hours.
