It was the backup tape itself and I claim my 5 pounds.
Seems like they are.
No you weren't. You was stupid.
Exactly. FBs day will come.
Is this the 1980s again? This was a common thing back in the last century. How the hell is happening again?
No kidding. You should all of his apologists on other comment pages. Douche bros defending a douche bro.
Says it all.
Ironic ain't it?
Most of us here work in tech and our job are daily "on the line."
Is it fun? Of course not. But frankly, NO job is safe these days.
NWO? You're soaking in it.
A business no longer needs to be quickly profitable, just through enough money at it until it one day it magically is. For reasons.
Think about that the next time you contemplate starting your own. This is what you are up against. Not some one else's better business plan or product, but a bottomless war chest that can make bollocks profitable.
Your local country club, The fee will just be a few million dollars.
Actually, it's already been gutted by the Trump admin.
Why did they suspect him in the first place and why with no evidence is it good enough to hold him seemingly indefinitely?
There are in fact arrest records of people who use this scam, although the common version has been the "it's me!" technique. This is just a higher tech version.
This is NOT some urban legend.
In Japan this is known as the "ore" (it's me!) scam.
People who defraud seniors should get the death penalty.
How many? You would be surprised. I know I was. There are still many companies using this world wide. Rather large companies at that.
Sorry, can't name names on this one. Confidentiality and all that.
Old joke is still best joke.
Have an upvote Fozzy!
Why not all three! :)
Am I bad for laughing at this?
The movie was never meant to be more than a matinée fare with a (then) current events relevant message.
Cheap moralizing I believe it is called with a twist ending.
In that form, it worked. The sequels sucked, but I have not seen the latest one.
You bring political shit into a completely unrelated thread and you are still not sure?
Well the core story of the movie was that, wait for it... politicians blew up the world.
And there was political conflict among the monkeys.
Or have you not seen the actual movie?
Kalanick seems like that guy at the pub who won't shut up, likes to argue about everything and is always wrong.
Pay the victims? That's just crazy un-American commie talk!
For a second I thought that said "dirty *icks."
Chattanooga, Tenn. has done the same thing and it has been a boon.
Trump is just a symptom. Or the logical end result. However you want to look it.
The only thing I'd give him credit for was pioneering modern day to-big-to-fail. Trump casino failures in the last century.
Yes, it's that bad.
...that gambling is happening on these premises!
"Here are your winnings sir!"
That's the famous Chinese port explosion at Taijin.
A VERY interesting bit of trivia about that port: it's very near one of China's supercomputing facilities, the National Supercomputing Center of Tianjin. Close enough that it caused some minor structural damage to the building and they had to shut the computer down for some time.
Where shall we send the 5 pounds? (<-character map not working today)
We've known this most of the last century. Mars' only reason to be colonized is to act as a base for asteroid mining.
It's not just Silly Valley, but California in general. The state is full of businesses that fuck over their employees.
O.K. well that's the US in general, but you get the idea. Silly Valley is even worse.
It was the wire fraud. The rest was just dirty laundry.
That's how it works. You treat your sales people bad and they leave and are more than free to contact their old clients.
This retaliation makes it obvious WHY he left in the first place.
Willing? Like they have a choice?
Deactivate cookies and tracking and you can't even pay your bills on-line or take on-line classes, let alone shop. Hell, most websites won't even load if you block all their bullshit.
It's gotten bad even in the old backwaters of the Internet.
Speedcams as used in the USA is a proven scam.
Also, I'll be surprised if they actually ever pay that money back before hell freezes over. Another great American scam: we'll pay you back when we feel like.
Everything in America is a scam.
But did they really?
I was trying to remember that title 2 days ago!
SEO is the biggest scam ever and I should have got into it 18 years ago.
I might yet.
I love it when people bring their own petard and rope.
The PTB are truly clueless about the Internet.
You can't stop the piracy, the dark web, porn, none of it. The ability to route around obstacles was built in from the beginning. Just like the entire purpose of the PC was freedom from the mainframe.
To badly paraphrase Sir Pratchett, " a mistake every corporation has been trying to fix ever since."
"The only sign that a miner is installed is an increased CPU load on the infected machine"
And how can we tell the difference between it and regular Microsoft operation?
Evolution in action!
Ichan the vulture capitalist.
You can always smell his stench around once great and now dying companies.
Funny how many once great American companies have killed themselves over the decades, yet we are still forced to believe that American capitalism is the absolute bestist!
Pro tip: ditch your IBM stock before the middle of this century. They're next.
Here's some candy little kid. Now run along and play. The adults are trying to fuck over people here.
- every company that pulls this PR stunt.
I can relate. It's a fucking miracle the phone system works at all.
"...it is important to note that this follows a prolonged period of IT professionals commanding higher and higher wages."
Those surveys are bullshit. I don't know who they are asking, but my income and experience is nowhere close to what the surveys say my income should be.
Not getting the downvotes, Peter so have an upvote from me.
Don't shoot the messenger folks. Be smarter about your everyday habits.
Well yes, if people can no longer read maps.
Oh wait, GB and America have become that stupid.
