Brand new $4 Mn kiln.

Built under budget.  How did Mike manage this?  Why, he left off inconsequential things like elevated platforms for people to stand on (extension ladders as a routine operations thing, lol) and maintenance rails for the 3 ton carts.

Which has managed to bite us a whole week into running the machine, when 2 "top" operators decided that the procedure was inefficient and decided to load the machine in manual mode.  Not gonna bore you with details, but "manual" turns off all the safeties, and as they overloaded the entrance tracks, the end car fell off the rail, because in manual, the loading traverse cart doesn't automatically return (hence the "manual" part).

So I have been here since 3 AM, first righting the cart, then using a monster fork lift to lift the cart off the tracks and place it on the ground, as there is no maintenance rail to shunt it off onto.  Every single time there is a problem, we will have to rig and lift the carts, which is an inherently hazardous task.

I explained this in the morning staff meeting in terms that made Mike literally weep with rage.  I approve of this.  I shall see if I can ramp it up until the fat useless arrogant bastard strokes the fuck out. 

Hatefully,
Dok

Carts filled with oil?

No, carts filled with aluminum oxide.

I'd say "phew" but it's a small, small "phew". More like a "phew".

Well if the doors don't lock I fail to see how a meeting stops anyone from getting to the bathroom.

They'd holler at my guys and then I'd have to do something awful.

And you know how much I hate being like that.

Oh I know, you just hate it so much.

And it's terrible, to have to hate doing something you have to do.  :fap:

It fucks my Buddha nature up, and means like 8 more turns on the wheel before I reach, whattaya call it, named after a grunge band (brainfarting here).

Please don't take this as an insult to your intelligence but (and I admit that I haven't done much research on this) I wonder whether you noticed that THESE bitcoins are wearing VR goggles.

Sadly, the argument is going in the direction of "reality is only perception" and "conciousness is not a physical aspect".

Right this minute, I'd like to feed fuckers like that into the choppy grindy burny machine.

Which is actually a thing.

But does the choppy grindy burny machine have a consciousness that exists in the "real" world?

Yes.  Yes, it does.

It is a simple machine, and has only one desire.

Plus, he unironically used the word "ergo".  In public.


How is it Mike still has a job, again?
