Worth?

How can they argue that the rescue disk was worth ANYTHING.

I would argue that even with the key Microsoft Software isn't worth much

Passive ultrasound absorption

If I recall, some foam rubbers and some curtain materials absorb ultrasound. Can any confirm this?

Thar she blows: Strava heat map shows folk on shipwreck packed with 1,500 tonnes of bombs

tony2heads

I remember this

When I was a lad in the 1960's in Gillingham, my dad told me about this shipwreck with thousands of tons of un-exploded bombs off Sheerness. The worry at the time was that it blew up it might take the oil refinery at the Isle of Grain with it.

Estimating that the number is 250,000, that's over $30m worth of stock.

Ex-EDS bod at DXC Technologies? Sign up to new pension scheme - or else...

@Dominion

As a rough guess I would suggest that unless you plan to stay there another 20 years you go for the final salary pension.

You pension is (for most people) there for a LONG time.

Watson AI panned, 5¼ years of sales decline ... Does IBM now stand for Inferior Biz Model?

tony2heads

Re: Eat this, Dorothy Dietrich

I really think that a CEO's pay should be directly connected to growth in income of the firm.

If it grows 10% the pay should grow 10%, and if it drops 10% their pay should drop 10%.

And if they drive it to bankruptcy - NO PAY.

As the meerkats say - simples.
