    OK LAST RANT FOR 2019 (probably not)

    Why (rhetorical) are all the snow flake developers who can't get to meetings in the morning (stand up) because reasons, then complain about other meetings like planning (fine don't come but don't complain about the decisions made), and all the other snow flake unicorn shit... ALSO the ones that can't deliver anything on time or to spec?

    Even more irony is they are remote so all they need is to be on webcam app of choice to participate, fuck I could write a bot to replace them because its so predictable what comments they will make and contribute... and the person whom I'm helping FIX their team seems to think they are the one worth keeping from the useless recruitment process they used as a startup, "oh you will work for equity only... your hired" and wonders why they want to cling on even thou they cannot contribute!

    PS - PC police, did you know using they... well PC police you can start a campaign. ;)

    Isn't it cool (with technology) that one can look at that photo and within 30 seconds know exactly where it is in the world and be looking at a map of it, and have a quick peek inside.

    Interesting racial demographic in that line. Doesn't bother me in the slightest but does make me wonder: is that due the food, or the population? It's just interesting how populations globally migrate over the long term.

    "Hey you know what would be cool? If we arranged our solar panels on the roof to form a great big X, you know, so people from space can see that this is the SpaceX building?, sure our electricity expenses will go up but think of the marketing potential"

    just want to point out that there is still heaps of roof space outside of the X they aren't using, so logic would dictate that the number of panels they have isn't calculated by roof space..........

    This is very true. Both government and large business are petrified of motivated, intelligent individuals with spare time. That's how market competition and political uprisings take place.

    Also filed under "why UBI will never be allowed to happen".

    Sorry i thought this was the thread we bitched about the dirty peasants that can't take three seconds to think for themselves and come to the logical conclusion/action.

    also far more interest in solar itself :
