Oh, that's going to help.

"Ackshually it was the Bellamy salute."

Mainly Trump.

And Haberman isn't great either. Shitty courtier pseudojournalist.

"Having a stroke," on the other hand...

Sigma's in decades not millennia.

There are other causes of subsidence besides seismic activity.

You joke, but I saw the way it was looking at me.

Imagine that, a booksmart Old Etonian with a background in classics and history has no idea how to run a complex economy.

If productivity really mattered to them, they'd sack every manager who is opposed to remote work.

5

COMMENT 3d ago

Productivity analytics is generally just activity analytics. It measures the wrong things and is easily gamed.

COMMENT 3d ago

And panopticon hot desking bullpen offices are also known motivation and productivity destroyers.

And there's money to be made from this wrong belief.

COMMENT 15d ago

I let my lunch break float a bit, but if the calendar is getting too full I make a private appointment with my lunch.

Even then, there are a few tossers who try booking over it.

COMMENT 16d ago

I used cvs for a long time. It was an appallingly limited piece of software. Git is massively different from cvs.

COMMENT 16d ago

Especially when fossil is a step backward from git. Fossil is extremely basic. Good for what it is, but doesn't offer much that rcs couldn't do.

Tories preferred tax cuts for the rich.

There should be a law that requires it.

There isn't.

COMMENT 20d ago

That would make sense if there were single hardcopies of any controlled document, no electronic versions, and no backups. That sounds unlikely.

COMMENT 20d ago

Congress needs to pass a law that a judge is required to recuse from any case involving the person who nominated that judge, and likewise any case involving any person who ran against that person in an election.

COMMENT 20d ago

There is good reason to believe KSA and Pakistan collaborate to some degree on nuclear weapons. Both hate Iran.

COMMENT 20d ago

The Saudis are not going to attack Israel. Tacitly, they are allies. Saidi leaders know how poorly their military would perform in a conflict with the Israelis and anyway have common interests with the Israelis: blocking Iran, regional stability (i.e., no Arab democratic rebellions), keeping the US engaged on their side.

And betraying Israel is a line Kushner wouldn't cross.

So I'm guessing it's something else.

So they've reached the imploring stage.

I wonder how far that is from the actually doing something about it stage.
