    Microsoft Internal Documents - Permanent Work From Home

    Work from home is nice, but I miss commuting. I like driving and sitting in traffic just doesnt bother me that much. I find driving in and driving home gives me time to prepare and unwind. Walking down stairs from the bedroom to the office just doesnt have the same effect.

    Images in conversations

    Hello - I wanted to see if I was missing something. Is it possible to ad an image to a conversation? I see what appears to be a picture icon, but it seems to only allow an http:\\ link. I also checked the +Camera icon and it seems to only allow media from a website, like youtube or...

    Millennium Bug (20yrs on) - Computerphile

    I still remember exactly what I was doing, drinking hard and partying at my friend John's house in northern New Mexico. I made it the latest, around 2 am and passed out watching some James Bond flick. Fun times.

    MLB Tests Trackman Computer System to Inform Umpires of Balls and Strikes

    No, just fucking no. An integral part of baseball is figuring out the umpires strike zone and pitching to it. Baseball isnt a short term game, it's about the long game. Umpires change every game and they all see something differently. This whole, "let's speed up baseball movement" is horse...

    Anybody out There Still Listening to Music on AM or FM Radio?

    I don't really listen to music on the radio, but talk radio and baseball games, I'm all over on the local mega AM station. Nothing more exciting than sitting around some afternoon and listening to a baseball game.

    Senate, House Bills Aim to Kill $7,500 Electric Vehicle Tax Credit, Add New EV Tax

    Good. Get rid of the credit and get people who buy these electric vehicles to pay a use tax to drive on the roads. While they are at it, they should force bicyclists over 18 to register, licence and insure their bikes. Unless you want to walk everywhere - everybody needs to pay to travel. BTW...

    Tesla Drastically Increases Supercharger Prices around the World

    I have a coworker that would like to disagree with you. When it is cold, she can't run her heater without suffering significant battery loss. She keeps blankets in the car just so she doesn't have to run the heater. Also, her car uses more energy or to say it differently, doesn't last as long...

    Tesla Drastically Increases Supercharger Prices around the World

    I guarantee you I have expired food in my fridge right now and I don't mean a day or two expired, I probably have yogurt that is months beyond the date, it's still fine. The simple fact is, unless it's growing something or smells bad, it's ok to eat.

    Tesla Drastically Increases Supercharger Prices around the World

    That is only effective when you drive in Washington State. When you cross the boarder, you are driving and damaging the roads without paying for the eventual repairs that will be needed. The gas tax assists in road repairs no matter what state you drive in.

    Tesla Drastically Increases Supercharger Prices around the World

    I believe bicyclists should be charged a licence and registration fee as well. Anyone over 16 that is. I never claimed to not use rare earth minerals, I just don't believe in using them in massive car batteries. Yes, super markets should be allowed to transfer expired or soon to expire food to...

    Tesla Drastically Increases Supercharger Prices around the World

    Except for that pesky fact that you are not paying for the roads or their maintenance because you are not paying the gas tax and your battery vehicle is statistically heavier, thus causing more damage to the roads. I specifically fill up with more expensive etoh free gas because I dont believe...

    Truck Owners Are Blocking Tesla Superchargers in "ICE-ing" Protests

    I have no illusion that the world is enslaved to electricity. Homes, computers, etc are becoming more efficient - we've replace incandecent bulbs with leds, tube tvs replaced with lcd - oleds, etc. As a society we are moving towards less use of electricity, lets not reverse that trend by...

    Truck Owners Are Blocking Tesla Superchargers in "ICE-ing" Protests

    I am absolutely serious. Coal has already been cleaned up. The constant pull on the electrical grid has far more immediate concerns for the environment from the potential of wild fires, brownouts, etc than gas guzzlers do. With the increase of "environmentally friendly" alternatives, i.e. wind...

    Truck Owners Are Blocking Tesla Superchargers in "ICE-ing" Protests

    Because you people, those who drive electric vehicles are the main reason why the roads are going to shit. The simplest solution to fixing the crumbling road infrastructure is to implement a "gas saver" tax. If your vehicle averages over 25 mpg, then you pay a separate fee on your registration...

    Wells Fargo Blames Computer Glitch as Reason It Foreclosed on Hundreds of Homes

    Wells Fargo Blames Computer Glitch as Reason It Foreclosed on Hundreds of Homes

    They owned up to it in their regulatory filling, are setting aside money for the homeowners affected, etc. Good job for them. It sucks for those 400 homeowners, but 400 out of millions of refinanced? Come on, thats gotta be within the margin of error for software code.

    Google Employees Protest Work For the Pentagon

    Drone strikes take care of the problem from thousands of miles away. They also help to eliminate future terrorists. I would like to see more of them and less boots on the ground. Hopefully, we can drone those rouge nations into submisson.

    Atlanta Hit by Ransomware Attack

    Atlanta will likely be implementing tanium and crowdstrike soon. They will also need to wipe and restore their dc's, reset kerbos, reset all ad passwords. They should be on the lookout for petya malware too. Likely the malicious actors were in the systems before they actually dropped the...

    New System Could Prevent Motion Sickness in Self-Driving Cars

    I hope this can be transferred to other cats, not just self driving ones. I do not get motion sick at all, doesn't matter what seat I'm in. I can read, draw, stare out the window, etc while riding in a car. However I know many folks who cannot, so road trips are not the funnest with them...

    I do mostly security, role assignment, etc. Trying to get in as a bpx while still maintaining my security stuff. I don't really do much basis stuff, but I would like to learn. I also don't do role creation. Fairly well versed in GRC. Not sure what those salaries should be.

    NSA’s Top Talent Is Leaving: Low Pay, Slumping Morale, Unpopular Reorganization

    I would love to work for the NSA. Im just not willing to move to DC. I think it would be a fun job. I don't think they use SAP which is my main knowledge base. 75-85 grand a year and fed government benefits, sign me up.

    'Dutch Sandwich' Tastes Like 16B Euros to Google

    No. There is nothing illegal about what they are doing. The tax code is so complicated that these types of scenarios are created because they try to fix others. Get over it. If you had a team of accountants and lawyers, you'd do it too. It is everyone and every companies obligation to pay as...

    Elon Musk Calls Transit Expert “An Idiot” and Says Public Transport “Sucks”

    Study: Electric Cars Already Cheaper to Own and Run than Petrol or Diesel

    Electric vehicles need to pay some form of "gas tax" because they are using the roads. One of the major reasons for the decline in road conditions and a states inability to repair, replace, and improve existing roads, bridges and overpasses is lower revenue from the gas tax. The gas tax is...

    Comcast Hints at Plan for Paid Fast Lanes after Net Neutrality Repeal

    The reason why paid fast lanes are such a problem is because it essentially forces competing services such as Netflix, etc. to pay for them, which in turn forces Netflix to pass those costs onto the consumer. Allowing an ISP to pick and choose what traffic gets priority is simply stupid...
