ad 53482 NBR is playing on TV {the mini 1
it seams clear to me, pushing down keyboard keys constitutes work
How to get paid for it, seams a easy to me as finding a system
{NOT nbr | that accounts per keystroke / time spent on line ?



I wish I did have actual numbers to compare to the general population. Because of stories like this one:

If only we had some people with researching skills that look up these interesting and new things for us.
I would gladly pay for some paper object filled with this kind of thing.
Because they are filled with new and interesting facts we could maybe call them interestingpapers?
I have heard legends of such things existing in the past, the people that did this kind of work were called journalists or something like that.

 no i don't know where today end of nbr 3:57pm pdt

I audibly sucked air through my teeth and winced.

Because every single one of us who have ever lost a nail, know EXACTLY how he felt at that moment.

So, had a workplace injury last night.  UAnd as the result of a completely preventable workplace accident, I have ended up losing a thumb.

Well, part of a thumb.

Well, half the nail of the thumb.  On my non-dominant hand.

But it really fucking hurts.

Ouch.... I cringed a little bit

Prepare to cringe more.  The sliced bit of nail didn't come off clean, it was about 3/4 of the way through, but it was left hanging there.  So, naturally, I had to rip it off the rest of the way.

Fun times.

Nasty.

Daemon is interesting, but essentially posits the way to solve humanity's woes is to SPOILER ALERT:






















turn reality into one giant MMO, with the AI as our benign, neutral overlord.  That's in the sequel, Freedom.  It's a problem with Suarez. He comes up with interesting ideas about hi-tech advancements, warfare and society, but fails on delivering an even slightly believable answer to the problems posed.

Just finished Daemon by Daniel Suarez where a computer daemon takes over when it scans and finds the original coder's obituary...then it takes over the world.  It was really good, imo.  Some parts are a bit of a stretch...like someone coding this thing was bug free.  there's no such thing as bug free....but I was able to suspend my disbelief because the rest of it was pretty good

Something from the Nightside was also decent...just finished that as well.  It had a bit of a pulp feel but was WAAAAAY better than the first book of The Dresden Files....that bland piece of shit ...I can't believe I finished it.

Now I'm reading Damed by Chuck Palahniuk.  Still not sure about this....it reads a bit like lousy teenage fanfic.  plowing ahead though.

Think I'm gonna have to check out this Daemon book. Sounds great.

I have stuff to say about this, but I'm posting via phone.

Short form: Dad decided not to continue cancer treatment, though he knew it would end his life sooner. So he both suffered AND killed himself.

 :sad:
I am truly sorry.
