  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Ah, yes. Thank you. I had a closer look at the purchasing manual and it actually states that the Welsh dragons are more than average sensitive in that respect. The manual says that the thought-reading aspect of the Welsh dragons...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    A Welsh dragon? Have you checked how many sheep they require during a week? And if you do not have a steady supply of virgins you need to upgrade the number of sheeps. Sure they live at least four centuries,...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Sorry for being not that polite. I have a room with classified security for intruders. The servers and firewalls sit there. The workroom has a much lower classification. No actual high-level security (with mercenaries, dragons or alligators). I do just...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Nah, nothing that strange. Just a hundred Chinese mercenaries with the permission to shoot everybody they do not know. And a moat with the alligators. The dragon just died of old age and no replacement before next year's budget....
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    I would (or actually my employer would) pay significant amount of money for a small pocket-sized device that could be used as a real desktop when there are a screen and a keyboard available. Something like 16BG RAM and 256GB...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Unfortunately the IEEE-documents are not binding regulations. Similar stuff can be found from ISO-documents. They have good stuff in them, but nobody punishes you or your employer of you have no understanding of proper quality control and do not perform...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    The discussion on WiFi and backups is interesting. When I compare my setting in my "home-office" (actually an employer approved remote branch with the possibility of having a couple of colleagues in the same space and with the required physical...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Yes, food is also an excellent example. I tend to forget those fields I have not been dealing with. And, by the way, there are studies which suggest that successful and "good" corporations are not such "nice guys" in the...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    "Seriously: How closely and in what ways do current O/S, app, systems developers test their products? Is there an international central body that requires testing to industry agreed-upon standards? (Are we at the stage that we should demand regulated standards...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    "(I'm going to stick my neck out here and assert that the typical commenter here is middle-aged-to-elderly, male, white, somewhere on the ASD spectrum, has a STEM background, and doesn't have children—or has adult children but no/limited contact with teenagers...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    I just do not understand the point of this posting. You tend to use the tools that are at most useful for what you are doing. I am in a three desktop lock. I need a real Mac, I need...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    I find it absurd that Brexit has provided us this long entertainment. I have some familiarity with economics and the British way to handle Brexit seems to be the most damaging one. After the election we had a small betting-pool....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    "Much of what you say about Labour sounds true, but I disagree with your view on Corbyn." I am, actually, a marketing professional coming from the political science + sociology point of view. I think that Corbyn had a brilliant...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    "Blair and Blairism, which was little better than the Conservatives" Thank you. This helps me to clarify my mind. I have always thought that Blair is a brilliant example of a completely corrupt politician. Corrupt in the sense of rotten....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    "Rather off topic, but this is a good reminder of how the modern Republican Party is no longer “the party of Lincoln” in any meaningful way." Ah, yes. The same holds in our country. In our country the liberal right...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    "Labour OUGHT to be at least 25 points ahead of the tories in the polls- & they are not - & we all know why, don't we?" Well, actually I do not know. I am in most issues in the...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    "I have not owned a working TV for over 44 years." Ah, you definitely show me how it is done. Respect. The turning point for me was the blatantly political content in TV programs, especially news. I actually appreciate clearly...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    "Kids these days barely watch TV as we knew it" Well... I am a couple of years younger than OGH, but I have not owned a working TV for over 15 years. I do watch streamed content, but for that...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    "I see very little evidence that they (the US right wing) want to punish rapists, or even acknowledge the possibility that it could have happened." Ah, I see. Unfortunately I have to agree. It is possible that my own ideological/religious...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    "This is the logical destination of the Republican War on Women of Reproductive Age in the USA. Even if you don't like abortion, this isn't about opposing abortion: it's about locking down womens' social options and punishing them for not...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    "The thing is, Brexit isn't about the EU at all, when you get down to it: it's about English identity politics. " Yes, that has been obvious to practically anyone outside UK. Personally I did estimate the probability of Brexit...

    "On the other hand, Warren keeps climbing, and I've seen at least one mainstream article that folks who originally said "never Warren" are coming to see her as a moderate choice. " I have to agree that from my point...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    "You have a misperception: Trump is only *saying* he's giving them what he promised... or is complaining that the courts, or the Dems, are preventing it." Unfortunately I have to disagree with you. The Trump Regime has been very effective...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    "It worries me that people seem to think that Trump will definitely be defeated in 2020." My bet in our unofficial workplace betting pool is that Trump will have a clear victory. He has been delivering what he has been...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Yes, having practically no border control for imports has apparently been a real disaster for e.g. Luxembourg. But you are right, bad phrasing from my part. Being lax on import control is not the same as having no border controls...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Some comments on the discussion. As a disclaimer I would like to point out that I am not from USA or UK. I would be quite surprised if even hard Brexit would cause serious problems with food or medical supplies....
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    Honestly, I do not believe the reign of the beige dictatorship to be over. In most countries the power still remains in the same hands. The Trump Regime in the USA looks like Koch brothers. As before. A bit spice...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    Hmm... I do think that we think differently about the implications. Or we do not understand the concept in the same way. Unfortunately the original concept has been too closely related to land and its ownership. Or it has been...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    Talking about "carbon taxation" is important, but it may not be the most important issue. The most annoying, and important, problem is, IMHO, the deteriorating ecosystem. We humans kill most of the ecosystem with no thought of how to survive...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    "There is a point at which assuming a disaster is inevitable and preparing for it becomes indistinguishable from encouraging it." Could be. Actually doing something that has a positive impact is notoriously difficult. A very effective way to battle climate...
