Me:  I think the FAT budget is too small.
Project Manager:  (laughs) Are you just saying that because it's been true for every other project we've done?
Me:  Yes.

And I'm still certain this brilliant forum is blooming with activity, but there some kind of filter letting us see only fraction of posts. If there isn't could we please set one up?
I have unlocked the first gate, but it leads only to ruins, filled with the echoes of a glorious past.  I seek a second gate, but have found it not.

Sorry.

Jokes on them, they took all the bad parts.


*nods, I wish i was here before i got here. :O it would have been a lot better for me. :D

..that sounds like you'd like this forum better if you weren't posting in it. You do appear to be part of the reason one of the regulars is taking a break.

Since the count is now three, I must ask:  Have you considered changing your persona now and then?  This one is becoming just a smidge tedious.  Maybe you could do without the "*nods" and ":O".  Earn your self-assigned title of "Goddess of Creativity", and stop repeating the same old schtick.

I have not been able to create anything for a while now for some reason.
I don't mean to be flippant/cliche, but sometimes you need to destroy something old before you can create something new.

Yes, but it also helps strategically placing spikes on each side of you about 23 meters away from you on each side before crossing, in case you forget to look.

Should I count this?  I think I will.  No sense dragging this out.  That makes two.

Under Article 13 -- the "censorship machines" -- anyone who allows users to communicate in public by posting audio, video, stills, code, or anything that might be copyrighted -- must send those posts to a copyright enforcement algorithm. The algorithm will compare it to all the known copyrighted works (anyone can add anything to the algorithm's database) and censor it if it seems to be a match.
I wonder if it would be possible to craft a set of images or videos that exploits weaknesses in the algorithm in order to generate a huge number of false positives.  Seems like an interesting challenge.

But in practice, I expect such a restriction would just result in wiping out every internet forum aside from twitter, facebook, and the youtube comment system.  Either every site would need to implement their own version of this (would would be absurdly expensive) or they would need to be integrated with a central authority (which would be a mess of apocalyptic proportions).

my brain has become a swarm of bees. pls. send oxygen.

I've released some oxygen into the atmosphere.  If you go outside, you can collect it.  It seems to have become diluted with nitrogen.  I hope that's okay.

I won't help you with the bees.  Conflict of interest, you know?

cool, feeling better. what form is the nitrogen in?

I think I have some B12 somewheres.

The nitrogen is diatomic and gaseous.  Just like grandma's home cooking.

I found some of the anecdotes from Woodward's book difficult to digest.

But every time I start to doubt what I read about Trump, to question the uncorroborated claims, to wonder about the credibility of anonymous sources, I go and read his twitter page.

It helps me remember that no matter how ridiculous the charges laid against him, no matter how much my brain insists that what people say about him can't possibly be real, he is shown by his own words to be an idiot.

Matthew 17:20 "He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
I think J was trolling his bros when he said that.  The true meaning is, "If you believe in stuff too much, you'll end up delusional and thinking you can move mountains with your mind.  But they won't really be moving.  It'll all be in your head.  Also, don't mess around with this exorcism stuff.  Leave it to the pros."

Quote
Hyperclessians 8:10 "Ain't nobody around here got mustard."

And being empty of stomach and refrigerator, the LORD went unto the grocery store.  There he came to the condiments aisle, and as he cast his eyes upon the mustard, declared "One of these things is not like the other, one of these things isn't the same!"  And he took a bottle marked MAILLE l'Ancienne, and lo!  It was filled not with paste, but with mustard seeds soaked in vinegar and wine.  And the LORD placed it in his grocery basket, and also placed therein cured meats, and rich cheese, and textured bread, and then returned home to make a Reuben sandwich.  And he tasted it, and it was good.

You can never relax.  You should never relax.  You should live your life in a haze of anxiety.

I like to sit with my back to the wall.

The leaves are starting to turn yellow and fall off.

Do you think I take the role of the autumnal equinox?  If it is so, my touch brings not death, but sleep.

Also, Engineers do not rule the world.  Engineers function at the whim of the people who carve up the budget.
We figure that out a few years into our first job.  The arrogant ones (like your Ron) refuse to face it and become even more arrogant.  The smart ones get themselves a solid technical grounding, and then switch careers to budget carving.  The weaker ones, crushed between the caprices of the business development group and the ruthless Judgement of The Machine God, dissipate into the ether, or go into sales.  The rest succumb to the grind.  A few manage to have fun with it.

Quote
Engineers design things, given enough motivation (pain, humiliation, astonishingly small bonuses, and maybe a convention or two that they falsely assume is a chance at mating).
I design things because I find it vaguely amusing, and it keeps me off the streets.  Unfortunately, the things I design are often pretty stupid.  Ever spent two weeks of your life adding a feature nobody is ever going to use, just because that idiot in the systems department wrote it into the spec?
