Why would you want to?

Considering that I'd probably be under the care of Sherrif Joe shortly after I appear, "want" may not come into it.

Seriously, I doubt I could last 30 days in AZ without jail being on the cards given how I usually behave.

And what the fuck is this empty field shit? getting that too.

Sheriff Joe is gone.  He got chased out of town a month ago.

And in Tucson, English behavior only stands out a mild bit.  We're crawling in Brits, actually, they've even taken to the Mexican soccer leagues.

Shit, really? That's almost a shame in a way. The same way unused nuclear ordnance is a shame, but still.

Anyway, shitpocalypse delayed at the last minute because division vice president is here next week and she wants to see it.

I have nerd blueballs.

Have patience and keep the faith. It won't be for long.

At what point does billing 30 days of power to a single 2 acre building at 500,000,000,000 BTU per day seem like real life instead of a meter problem?

I'm just curious, here.  That's a 126 kt atomic bomb going off at 8 AM every single morning for 3 months and nobody noticed.

YES IT FUCKING WILL.  THEY HAVE TAKEN OUR PROCESS AND METHODOLOGY AND GIVEN IT TO SOME "CHEMISTS" JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE "DEGREES" AND "DECADES OF EXPERIENCE."

Probably shouldn't have mentioned the estimated chloramine release.  :rogpipe:

Odd that the power provider didn't notice... fraud maybe?

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

It's more that a meter was broken. 

I know that feels like the universe cheated us, and it did, but facts are facts.

So, my boss's last day was today.  New boss and corporate guy have said I'm getting the plant (which pays an ass-ton of money and is what I do best), and also that as of today, the HSE supervisor reports to me.  She is in charge of - among other things - the site police force.  They are real police, with the power to arrest and cite, who answer to the county in terms of accountability.

So I have my own police force.

I know how this ends, of course.  I will be shot, eaten by an alien, or dropped off of a building before the end of the movie.  I am okay with that.  I am 169% committed to Sparkle Motion, and I am all about having a good time at the expense of my future.

The only question is, do I become corrupt immediately, or become *absolutely* corrupt immediately?

Well you can't half-ass this sort of thing. You know this is truly a once in a life-time opportunity, I can read it in your pixels.

TO THE WALL, as you say. Make them either regret handing you the keys to boundless power or grateful it didn't go quite as horribly awry as it /could/ have. Or both, in alternating churns of the stomach, like they ate a sandwich that got left outside at high noon in your corner of hell and now their abdominal wall is the only thing between it and FREEDOM.

I don't know that it's possible to horrify this company.  They make Halliburton blush.

But I shall do my best.

I dunno. The movie could have a cool plot twist that, as the last ambulance drives away, it suddenly becomes clear that the world is a fundamentally better place now, despite all the blood.

Oh sweet fuck.

The only remaining question is how corrupt is the police unit already?

Eta- I'd expect "moderately" and assume this can be raised to "totally" with cheap incentives. A pay for promotion scheme should do the trick nicely.

Can't get much worse.   :lulz:

So, our utilities, etc, report through a chain of programs, like so:

Meter A --->  Reading software address A ---> database location A ---> billing software Report A
Meter B --->  Reading software address B ---> database location B ---> billing software Report B
etc

HOWEVER, due to be constantly interrupted, the programmer did stuff like this:

Meter A --->  Reading software address A ---> database location A ---> billing software Report A
Meter A --->  Reading software address B ---> database location B ---> billing software Report B
etc

So I have this vast river of data, and I just learned I can't trust any of it.   :lulz:

Everyone is panicking and hollering solutions that make no sense, so tomorrow I asked new boss lady to schedule a meeting for everyone except me and IT guy (not the guy that transposed things, that's a contractor), and he and I are going to map out all of the meters that have been changed, verify the addressing, and fix it over the next few days.  The problem is new enough that the reading software that hasn't reported should still have all of the missing data in its buffer.  This is fixable if everyone in the lifeboat doesn't try dancing the Charleston at the same time.
