  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Employee violated standard emergency materiel acquisition guidelines.

  • Commented on Yet another bad idea
    Yeah, we put alcohol in our beers too (in Ireland) and generally this sort of bear-riding hallucination is not the outcome......
  • Commented on Yet another bad idea
    What the hell is Scotland putting in it's beer and can we get some over here?...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Well OBVIOUSLY the problem megpie is that you haven't started your own startup business to... Sorry, couldn't keep a straight face even while typing that nonsense. Perhaps you should direct folks to the Job Cannon meme? http://www.dittoepr.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Job-Cannon.jpg...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Yes but - and don't take this as an insult - the US treatment of internships was long seen here as the kind of mistake we'd rather not make ourselves. Like the entire HMO healthcare system. Though now we appear...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Actually, Charlie, has Scotland gone down the road of mangling an internship program so badly that it's almost slave labour in order to address unemployment the way the Irish government has with JobBridge? (ie. go work for [name your multinational...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    I take it you've seen the links bounced round the place earlier on the times things like this have been tried Charlie? eg. Mincome in Canada? http://basicincome.org.uk/interview/2013/08/health-forget-mincome-poverty/...

  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Andrei, I'd love to say I was wrong and it's an urban legend, but I've spent too long in the industry seeing it first hand in too many places and watched too many friends and colleagues have the same experiences....
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    I can't be the only one who sees the irony here of the IT industry being one of the main enablers of this kind of social change (at least in recent times) while simultaneously having one of the worst cases...
  • Commented on Dear Google, am I pregnant?
    Winner of the stupid question of the decade went to the 19-year-old member of the Scottish shooting team who, when standing chatting to the armed cops at Heathrow (having just checked his own rifle onto the flight) unthinkingly asked of...
  • Commented on Schadenfreude
    The schadenfreude continues... http://flexcoin.com/ Flexcoin is shutting down. On March 2nd 2014 Flexcoin was attacked and robbed of all coins in the hot wallet. The attacker made off with 896 BTC, dividing them into these two addresses: 1NDkevapt4SWYFEmquCDBSf7DLMTNVggdu 1QFcC5JitGwpFKqRDd9QNH3eGN56dCNgy6 As...
  • Commented on Dear Google, am I pregnant?
    Wow. A few years back while working for a web development shop, I wrote a training system for nurses for the DCU school of nursing. Nothing spectacular, and it was a small project, but one of the very first things...
  • Commented on Rule 34, meet Kafka

  • Commented on Schadenfreude
    Wow, if you have to be Charles Stross to be an "enthusiast", just how high is the SF bar set?!?!!...
  • Commented on What are the big issues of 2013 going to be?
    The thing with the 3D printers is that right now, they're the internet pre-iPhone; walled gardens are passe and obviously wrong, everyone's focused on open standards, we're all going to be printing spare parts and making and sharing nifty gadgets...
  • Commented on What are the big issues of 2013 going to be?
    In the local area (ie. first Ireland and then probably the UK and anywhere else where journalism was long ago replaced by commercial concerns, murdock-style), the Statutory Instrument signed by Sean Sherlock in Ireland allowing copyright law on the internet...
  • Commented on The ticking clock
    Hm. Need to invent these hypothetical situations faster Mr.Stross! :D http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/05/120514204050.htm...
