As someone who served in a unit that was tagged for North Korea, this is absolutely correct. Chump is giving them *exactly* what they want.

Couple of interesting stats for my commute:

* Riding the train is fun, but costs more than *twice* what filling the tank did when I owned a gas car.
* Driving 5 miles further, to take the Light Link Rail, saves nearly $2/day overall.

I've listened to former employers say for years that they want to hire more women. Getty *does it* :-)

Shawn

Pleased to have learned last week that Getty Images hires from the Ada Developer's Academy in Seattle. One of the ladies on my team is a recent graduate :-)

Yes, Dell says you can get Linux on any laptop, but whenever I try to get prices it *only* shows me XPS models with 13" screens :-| Who else has quality laptops with Linux pre-installed?

Shawn

Ice Madness in Seattle! Took me 2.5 hours to get to work today :-(

Schools are not the place for "awareness." Apparently.

"Please be advised that the Needville ISD will not allow a student demonstration during school hours for any type of protest or awareness!!"

So, I've struck out with laptop hardware from both Zareason and system76. Anyone have recommendations for buying laptops w/ Linux pre-installed?

Shawn

Seen on-line:

> How about a parade of nothing but homeless vets and then we give them a place to stay at the end?

Shawn

EVERYONE should hear this. An excellent answer.

I am occasionally reminded that I have some pretty amazing friends, who have made their own marks on history. Thanks for including me in parts of your life, Dan :-)

I'm happy to share that I've just accepted at 12-month contract to work at Getty Images :-) I've been pretty happy with AIM Consulting, which helped me get both this gig and my previous job :-)

Shawn

Can we start talking about the reality of the employment institution? Frantically trying to convince others choosing you will make them more money so you don't starve or die of an infection. Over and over again.

Shawn

Do I know anyone who's done software development for Paccar/Kentworth - or knows someone who has?

Shawn

Huzzah! I have narrowly avoided a medical laser in the eye today. 👍

Finally saw Arrival, and now my mind feels like it's in a brain hot tub - just chillin' out, soaking up concepts and ideas.

This Armistice Day, I ask you to support our troops by denouncing the leaders that abuse their trust & sacrifice. - SPC4, WA Army National Guard.
