"...Apple has gone full-DevOps "
Is that like Full Bursar?
That's mine with the dried frog pills in the pockets.

Same here - twin monitors and full size keyboard in the office hung off an encrypted Yoga1 (the desk is shared with another, we just don't go into the office on the same days). At home I plug it into twin monitors and a full size keyboard too.
No I don't close the lid - it's effectively a 3 monitor setup - 2x 22" monitors for work, laptop screen for distractions - I mean work related IM.

That alone would require a 100% boost in salary to even consider moving away from.
Offered != Accepted
Pay her enough not to work for anyone else for the year. Include this in any contracts.
(Along the lines of "if you leave we will continue to pay you x% of salary (percentage to be based on value of information held) for a period of one year on the understanding that you won't work for our competitors or share proprietary time sensitive data in that period. You will not be privy to any of our new data during this period so when it expires your knowledge will be out of date.")
Or is that too simple?
From Schlock Mercenary:
Commander Kevyn: So we're supposed to evacuate the rest of them?
Commodore Tagon: Sure, that would be a great solution. Let's call that "Plan A."
Captain Murtaugh: Also known as "Ablative armor that probably won't protect Plan B."
Captain Tagon: Plan B always takes the bullet for Plan C. That's why the alphabet has more than three letters.
Too bloody right!
UAT testing should be 10 mins on script.
Then over to the actual important stuff -
Does it do what I need it to do?
Can I break it? if not, can I get it to do something unexpected?
If it is an upgrade - Does it still do what it did before (correctly)? or did they break that too?
Give UAT to the people who actually use the system day to day, just like any changes should be what the users can demonstrate a need for.
The end users should be the ones who are tasked with signing off the UAT- it is their own fault if things don't work properly afterwards if they skimped on testing.
That should fill out the time sheet nicely too.
Yes I do feel strongly about this, why do you ask?
.. but I have some morals, so I'll stick to investing in Tobacco, Alcohol and Arms Dealing.
I have a 32A supply in the garage. Comes with SWMBO having one of those new-fangled electrikery cars. I assume its 240v as we only have the one line coming in to the meter.
Unfortunately providing aid does not buy votes... I mean provide jobs on the Clyde.
The USB goes into the PC, the 1/4" jack into the Strat.
The convertors? yep got a few of those - in both directions - it's hard to find cheap headphones with 1/4" jacks these days.
Also found a T-piece tree with half a dozen terminators on it in my spares drawer. - Haven't used 10 Base 2 in decades and moved house 3 times.
I raise you USB to 1/4" Jack (Male) - how else do you connect a Stratocaster to a PC?
My Gran was always of the opinion that if the veg doesn't need to be wrung out before serving it is underdone.
So Sunday dinner was started around 9am for a sit down around 2pm, the house filled with the scent of cabbage steam for days after.
I still dream of this.
Sometimes I wake screaming.
Generally there are insufficient resources (blood supply) to run two processes at once.
Blue Thunder was better than Airwolf (any series) anyway.
A young Dana Carvey as JAFO as I remember.
(Icon for the incoming flames from Airwolf fans)
Alien was a horror movie.
Aliens an action movie,
The less said about Alien 3 the better.
You could offer "free" wifi with the cryptomining levy openly disclosed as the cost of using the wifi.
Say only 10% of cpu cycles.
It wont pay for the wifi in itself but might generate a bit of extra profit - if held for long enough.
However Arthur Anderson did manage to disqualify themselves from any contracts ever again.
Those are requirements for an outsourcer like Crapita to make a profit. All those lovely change requests and consequent fees.
The initial tender is always low because they know they can pick up the profit on the CRs.
Ah yes... Italian tuning.
Also known as drive it like you stole it/thrash the tits off it.
All Diesels with EGRs need this regularly.
Nope sorry, at this time on a Friday afternoon all I'm getting is Error 418 - I'm a Teapot.
Ah.. Wine O'clock in the office.
More of a guideline really...
"By the time you have added a generator, a fuel tank a transmission, an exhaust and a cooling system you will have..."
Transmission isn't needed. You run the engine as a generator not as a traditional IC engine driving a transmission driving the wheels.
Confirmed for a Mitsubishi Phev - 30miles reported range - usually get 23-24 in the summer not using the AC.
Winter? 18 miles if lucky, and even then the 2 litre generator kicks in until the batteries have warmed up (if temp below 10C).
But you can pre-heat the cabin by remote before unplugging it from the mains in the morning!
just like a real dog.
I have to disagree with you there This tiny thing is the perfect size - not metal but not enough sticking out to be bent when a wheelie chair is slammed into it.
Plus it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb plugged into a car usb slot (64GB of rock, metal, industrial... saves filling up the phone with music).
Someone (Roland6 I'm looking at you) beat me to this.
Yes, if you take them off road at 50+ mph.
Take a look at WRC cars and the states they get into. You cannot state that they count as poorly maintained or substandard parts (back in the 90's it was reportedly £25K per wheel for an Impreza's suspension, compared to not much more than that for the entire civvy car with a full set held ready for end of stage replacement).
Put any machine through enough abuse and it will fall apart, given it is military I would expect the abuse to be far higher than any civvy car - other than one that's been TWOC'd of course!
Helicopter icon for falling wheels!
Still waiting, 2 years on, for Cable my street to actually get into gear.
More likely Clue by four.
Some just need "percussive maintenance".
Or maybe "wall to wall counselling" as it used to be called.
So removing all of it would be a phlebectomy?
Much prefer an exsanguination/exsanguinate as a word!
Time to sell a suite of easy to use hacking tools called Thunderstruck.
That would entirely depend on what documentation you kept, where you flagged up the potential flaws and were overruled by manglement on the grounds of cost.
Or if the hack is down to your failure to follow the recorded design spec because you couldn't be bothered/knew better.
Basically get everything in writing.
Starting with custodial sentences for the Exec board (all) and senior line management (directly implicated).
Sorry, you are nothing but the construct of a deranged imagination.
Pint for 3 pints at lunchtime.
Pretty much the same reason I would never (again) touch a car where the electrics had been done by the French.
Disclosure - I have had Peugeots and Renaults and they have all had severe electrical faults -even to the point where the electric motor for the rear passenger window caught fire (Megane). Never again.
I'll stick with Ford from now on.
and the repeat 20 years later of China copying Japanese (and everybody else's) motorbikes and cars.
Though still not up to a Ninja, Triumph or a Ducati the Chinese bikes now are a vast improvement over those 5 years ago - let alone 10.
That's why I prefer mils for angles.
6400 mils to a circle.
1mil subtends 1m at 1km.
or at least close enough for artillery.
1: Revoke access
2: follow the scream.
You missed out - who's fault it is.
Yup, whod've thunked it, a electromagnetic radiation sensor affected by high energy electromagnetic radiation.
Mind, it is hard to get a filter for gamma rays that lets through visible light...
Preaching to the choir there.
The number of hoops I have had to jump through in the past to make sure I stayed independent and was not breaching the compliance policy just to select the funds in my SIPP is horrendous.
Now I just make sure it is not a client (easy - read last year's annual report), stay clear of the corporate finance teams near the coffee machine, register my interests with compliance and I'm free to invest.
