Aaahhhh, a voice from my chilhood.
Over leftpond north, the delivery lockups (WackyMart) - > inside
(PC Superstore (loblaws) ) -> outside, cameras present
Metro (Formerly A&P) -> outside the store but in a bricked in shelter with zero sightlines and as far as I can see, no cameras.
Lowes (?? what thats a hardware mall) -> outside, in shelter, with cameras, and *cough* the security guard hut. (they have a large chanlink fenced area with 'spensive stuffs in it)
Not that I'm one for online shopping to start with and I'm sure as hell more likely to hit the farmers market for fresh stuff. I suppose one could do drygoods and canned stuff. However, *everything* I've looked at up here .... delivers to your house on a schedule for things like that.
I not sure why he's subbing in a variable. He appears to have more than one real world.
-- Just hope the airline is serving pancakes and waffles.
@ Gordon P:
Well -- this is the point of all
@AC "Bran Flakes" -> you might be regular but the advertisers could use some of those bran flakes.
Bell Canada already got their ass kicked by the CRTC for this shit. Still haven't changed the name of the service, but they did get slapped for it.
1) raises Upper mgmt: < need 12% per BOD and 15% for Csuite. Bank says NSF. M did calcs,
2) dismiss 25 to 30% of staff, save 89.8% of value of (1). Bank says go.
3) neeeed nwe PA. Subtimmign intenr requets as tihs typign thign is hrud.
GCHQ proxy watching for trrists buying weaponizable materials fall down go boom?
So -- THATS why my priest is still at 93. I'll get my goggles and go WOW to see if that helps.
rather like a mess of bridges we have here in southern ontario that were built quite some time ago, and where road resurfacing under them has cut the clearance down to 13' 6".
(And let me tell you, there are some "level crossings" in my neck of the woods that are better phrased as idiot launch runs)
@ JLV - Nope nope nope. Us central canucks believe that you have a whole damned ocean over there to hide the bodies in. Please keep the Whole Foods crowd at that end. Just spend more time nudging them off the bridges.
I find Galen W's "SuperStore" pricey but quite good. At least I'm *sorta* keeping the money in country.

Personally I rather prefer a good Veal Sammy. Analogies are *nothing* like a good veal sammy.
<yes its lunch time over here>
First world problems
Second world war
Third world infrastructure
Forth Estate (dunno I'm left pondian - would one have an estate on the Firth?)
And being a tuesday and calling a 2.5 year project finally truly and completely closed,
Only things worth dyin' for are chicks and cars and the third world war.
I think its time to polish la resume
Depending on which echo chamber you hang off they're already here, running the other echo chamber....

Never attribute to malice that which can be sufficiently explained by stupidity.
I mean, as far as I'm concerned, all that "Dark Energy" in the universe is just the stupidity showing up on the scans.
@AC 3600 Steeles was in this state 4 years ago. Don't bother polishing anything just start asking. There is *MUCH* better work out there. For what its worth, I *never* specced a code on target hours. Don't use lotus notes behind the tool, switch to LO spreadsheet, fill it out, save it, pop it open in lotus and submit.
Stupidity of the worst sort, and the reason I left.
I'd be careful, very easy to misread as CONtrade.
and at $1K/socket, I'm going to have to ask what the maintenance on that would be - HCI doesn't tend to run on small numbers of sockets.
Mars as the primary backup site -- I still like the idea of using really large rocks as orbital elevators/farms/up system-downsystem elevators instead of "ships" -- we'd have populace, and food sources not pinned to the planet, and means of shuttling back and forth, and the bonus of having backup DNA constantly in motion, in multiple locations.
I think someone proposed having collectors orbiting around mercury and using some interesting physics to pump the result out to (Jupiter/Saturn) orbits -- and then some trash talking extremist started throwing rocks at mercury.
I think that Niven and Purcell have a few clues in there that we should be taking to heart. However, we tend to think of our museums as money makers, rather than educational sites.
As for mars? Elon: I'll drive if you'd like.
No, Yahoo was a toxic waste dumpster fire;

I don't think that NPPD is still in the active diagnostics. Narcissism is created. Sociopathy is inherent.
(however when I were a lad it was on the books. At the ripe old age of 9 I was granted that title by an arrogant little shit of a psychologist. And spent 4 years working it off with a psychiatrist who made a hell of a lot more sense to me.)
Is a Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitor (SSRI in the pharma lingo). If you look up "what is an SSRI" and have an iota of logic in your understanding of neuropathy, you will understand why I would have been laughing in the defense's face with that line of defence.
So -- I'll admit that we've managed to screw this lot of <teen<->twenties> kids up massively.
<I've already ranted on that>.
This one -- I want to say make her do all 20 standing on her hands in the corner. But that wont solve the problem long term - What blows me away is just how little has been made of this case....
Having two younger "family" members both attempt suicide at ridiculously young ages, I am thankful to the true friends of both that alerted parents of the situations. It terrifies me to think that the sociopathic mentality exhibited here might have been active instead of the caring that was shown to my 'family'. I suspect *that* colours my rage against this individual.
(FWIW, Celexa either does *very good things* or *doesn't work at all* in the cases I've seen it applied, it CERTAINLY doesn't induce delusion, and I'm not talking one or three observed cases.)
re: the quotes around family. Not my direct family, but in the group that I *consider* family.
Yuuuup. Still have one of those running every 10 minutes or so.....
Is HAPPENING NOW!!!
We MUST have DECRYPTION at will on our systems to STOP TERRORISM HAPPENING NOW.
<to borrow someone else's tactics>
Lets just ask a question. How much are our governments spending on Anti Terrorist actions, both in legislative cost, and in real terms of boots on the ground and projects etc.
How many "Deaths" have been prevented by that spend?
How much has been spent on fire prevention standards enforcement?.
(I apologize to anyone in that apartment block, but the perspective is relevant. You have my utmost sympathy, and would have my open arms and willing hands if I was on that side of the pond)
.... " I do not think that means what you think it means ....."
(Its Friday, and well, fun.)
We're disrupting the global taxi oligopoly!! Those horrible operations that charge SO MUCH for taxis services in all these cities where they own the politicians and prevent competition and REGULATE things!!!! We're DisRupTive!
" Hey, lets write an app, distribute it, sucker people into working for us for next to nothing, and then charge idiots as much as we can get away with for taxi services. And when the law comes after us, we just tell 'em we're a *platform* not a taxi company, and we can dodge *ALL* the taxi laws!"
That the contracts went in the bin instead of the shredder because the H&S folks had to remove the shredders last time someone disappeared?
<Yay BOFH friday>
( Thanks to Geronimo)
"Said company actually distributed information about one of their investment products, which held false information, thus possibly not correctly depicting the risk attached to actually buying this product."
If I'm following that detail - the company in question released details of a product that were inaccurate, and *other* entities propagated this information. Google is linking to the "inaccurate" information. There are TWO points to this. Both of which are relevant to the 'editing history' crap.
1) there should have been a requirement to distribute a 'mea culpa' document correcting the information and
2) anyone in the *other entities* list should have been required to edit the original posting with the mea culpa.
How, in this case, does what could be seen as an editorial error fall under the 'right to be forgotten' rules?
Compare please, "We screwed up and didn't get all the data straight" to "Participated in adolescent stupidity".
Many many many newspaper archives have been scanned from 'fiche to digital and are searchable.
I've been next to the 'stories in local newspapers .... could affect job prospects' in that searches online can on occasion return references to my father. It usually results in a question, and a pleasant chat about having learned from my fathers mistakes.. Your pivotal point -- "Conviction has Expired" is sufficient, and if someone were to use a google search result as a reason not to hire your friend in this context, they would be knowingly violating labour laws in at least 4 countries that I can think of off the top of my head.
Did she post that from her desk in the office,
From the bedroom at home,
from the helicopter on her way to the airport,
From a bedroom in a hotel on an island somewhere?
We need a tumblr of that.... yup yup
"And yes - definitely weekend voting. Weekday voting is always going to mean a higher turn out by the old retired people who have time on their hands."
"And yes - definitely weekend voting. Weekday voting is always going to mean a higher turn out by the lazy unemployed youth who have time on their hands."
--- And yes, I've seen BOTH of those arguments. In one case, from the same body.
Since the bulk of the communications on the blackberries went through *email* servers - other than herself, Obama's blackberry emails were very likely saved.
Your point was?
Actually I can envision him finishing that with "Quigley!!!! You're FIRED!"
He certainly seemed to enjoy that portion of the TV show.
"An illusion, what are you hiding" (from).
Since I'm a homeowner, I'm not in the same boat. There are public records, and I'm sure that there are a couple of other folks around in the same boat. Your phone number is one of a sequence, so it is technically publicly available - just not directly assigned to you publicly. Certainly, someone somewhere has your phone number tagged with your name, possibly your address, and is using google. Sorry.

This ass needs to be sentenced to life in a third party call centre, answering the phone manually and announcing, "All of our lines are currently busy, your call is important to us, and will be answered in order as soon as we have a representative available."
He is not allowed to say anything else under pain of lashings. He must work 14 hours a day, and is allowed a 30 minute lunch, and 1 15 minute unpaid break before and after lunch. His pay will be 1/3 what anyone else on the floor gets.
Draconian? hell yes. Better than, however being vain enough to take his life.
I as a parent insist on setting a good example for my boys.
We all make various noises -- and it seems that since I've had my gall bladder out, my variety of noises has only expanded.
If someone over there has been abusing their kids by making potty time something to be ashamed of, its time to fix the parents, or the social structure that permitted the shaming.
" Interesting. The only way to win is not to play....."
All this simulation stuff could get us into skynet.
Soo..... Avenade is true to its roots then?
We still don't know who now owns 20% of a certain russian oil company.......
@ Big Boomer.
Stop making fun of Bombastic Bobs anonymous posts. Thats not nice.
Had to run triax connections around the first office I wired up for an System36. *shudders*
@ DAM: terminology aside, I agree.
How about we go with my definition of the case - Drama Lama gone bad.
She *wanted the attention* of being the bereft girlfriend, and went over the top after his death to be the 'wonderful person' that was 'left behind'. This is quite indicative - of several things.
Society has stranded that generation with the *need* to be unique and special - our education system no longer prepares them for any sort of failure, or even worse, being 'joe blow middle of the road'. They must be, they will be, they OF COURSE are the next (superhero/supergenius/wonderkind) of the day. This leaves the vast majority of them feeling horribly inadequate as they have not rocked the universe by the time they're 16. TV/movies/internet/music have left them all with an utterly disgusting imbalance as to what is success, what is pretty, what is handsome, what is successful, what is a relationship. (Youtube is one of the worst, with twats like that noisemaker who recently got fired). Social media ENCOURAGES drama. I mean if you don't have something (someone died/someone won/ someone loves me/ someone hates me/someone left a burning bag of dogshit on my porch and it burnt down the ENTIRE NEIGHBOURHOOD) interesting as post you wont get a million likes and become viral famous rich youtube celebrity overnight.
All that out the door, yes, the family are relatively involved in the situation. So are the rest of her social circle. And *their* parents. And the schools. And the advertisers. And the TV producers. Oh. Shit. Most of the society we've built.
The company was going to do the 'wikipedia' of employment opportunities?

-- Considering some of the amazing amateur photography that has come down from ISS on some of the staffer's DSLRs, I'm wondering if the folks at the NRO just decided that it was time to show those boys and girls what *REAL* photography around the ISS would look like.
Kudo's to the ISS staffer's that have contributed to irritating the NRO into taking some amazing snaps. Now to get the NRO to show off!
AThe real problem, as Hilgeman points out, is memory bandwidth per core.
