As someone who has worked with wireless before, I am definitely unsurprised

But this is seriously intense work!




My favourite part of this statement is that it's completely untrue






Ok, serious thought:
what if, I make "doomsday storage lockers" for doomsday preppers to rent to put all their gear in for the end of the world

My parents weren't wealthy, just super-organized and frugal at the right time in Western history to capitalize on it. They had five kids on two part-time teachers salaries, have a house in their name they finished paying about 10-15 years ago, and are enjoying a good civil servant retirement because they could switch back to full-time schedule once we grew older just a few years before they both retired under 60 years old.

Me: *caves after back and forth*

Relatedly: I have a new drone





The law allows my employer to submit paperwork for employment insurance late. My employer has decided to do this. So I will be missing a few weeks of parental leave payments I guess? Which, I can afford, but others can't.






Why not banking servers written in Excel stored in github?
I don't think so, the comments seem to give away the original intention: GitHub is the place where cryptocurrency software is being developed, so he's pitting the banks with their fiat money against engineers with their cryptocurrency, hence the "place your bets".

It's inane from start to finish but it makes more sense than your explanation.
oh! Worse! I missed that and that's even grosser






Wait - has Straczynski never played a TTRPG?!

We need to get him at a table!


The thing that gets to me about burnout is how much brain work is mandated to eat all your time and make you less able to do your job, then burn out
