Saw this: https://code.google.com/p/google-apps-script-issues/issues/detail?id=1287#c9 and was reminded about the last time I lamented the rudeness and sense of entitlement felt by some that I find difficult to empathise with.

Am I really now so old or is behaviour like this still considered rude?

Having grown up coding, firstly swearing at the keyboard when the game I was retyping from a magazine had a bug due to a publishing error and then later through to more complicated projects which at best allowed you to make a post on a telnet forum in hope someone saw your bug report, I consider the githubs and bugzillas of this world plus the fact that many of these repositories and services are FREE still mind boggling and a privilege.

Harvard Business Review post on why being motivated to complete a task is different from being motivated to perform at your max potential.

When people perform at their highest potential, tasks are completed faster, problems are solved better, and productivity is maximized. 

Effectiveness vs. efficiency

Anyone else find that the Apps Script documentation (perhaps all API docs at developers.google.com) crashes out on longer pages using iOS WebKit browsers?

Story
Tagline
A knight travails under the idea that he/she is striving for a world where they are no longer needed.
Introduction

I am an Architect, Urban Designer and Design Technology Specialist in a leading professional Architectural Practice. I support the practice in it's work to deliver high quality, efficient and joyous place making and building design. 

I focus on the leveraging of design technology and information analysis to better meet the needs of our clients and help our management teams provide a sustainable business platform from which design can prosper. I am part of the driver team delivering the wholesale transition of Allies and Morrison Architects to a 100% BIM/GIS focussed practice. 

I undertake research that concentrates on the processes and design for the regeneration and repair of British cities and suburbs. Some of this undertaking translates into effective design toolkits, both automated and theoretical, for the investigation and research of sites and their potentials across 3 broad themes. Human potential, Infrastructural potential and funding potential.

I believe in a non-dogmatic approach to design excellence; Inspiration, delight and engagement do not necessitate a polemical or theoretical basis of design but also believe that having such a design basis does not preclude them. I bring empathy, lateral thought, aptitude and enthusiasm to both the development of technological solutions and my architectural and urban design work.

By way of urban design polemic, I have a general belief in the fostering of a heightened proximity, not only through form but principally interaction between individuals and groups, is the key for developing great places to be. A key word in this is exchange. Ideas, emotion, money, artefacts are all prospered by the exchange. The forums for exchange are the stuff and purpose of cities.

Beyond practice I lead a team seeking to change the way that distributed teams can organise without requiring bricks, mortar or even an employer in Graphic Design, Architecture and Software Engineering fields. This is the end goal, but we are building assistive technologies across those industries to that end that can deliver value alone.

Specialties:
Master-planning, Coordination and planning delivery matrices, Funding Matrices, Multidisciplinary Team Working; Building Information Management, GIS setup; Functional Analysis, Programmatic Solutions, Visualisation, Cloud computing, Technology Strategy, Data Protection Policy, Skills Attainment Support.

Increasingly erratic opening times compensated by wonderful service and good quality fresh produce. If it looks small from the front window - it is. However there is often what you need squirreled away in the aladdin's cave and never seen cold store room to the rear. Pro-tip any veal is always out of sight. The butcher's own sausages both chip and full are a delight. The free range poultry always a good choice. If you want something particular, pop your head around the door the day before and it will be selected at Smithfield Market the next morning and be ready for you when you revisit the shop. We rarely get away from the shop without one of the kids either wanting a scotch egg (good value) or one of the bananas from the small selection of organic fruit and veg. They also carry a few Kent produced ciders and wines.

Clean and with very attentive staff, nurses, midwives and doctors. However, it is romantically inefficient at times - but that is actually just as I like the NHS to be.

This garden centre keeps improving and understands the situation of families with children and their shopping experience. As long as kids are well behaved there is a lot for them to see while you get your essentials. The aquarium is the favourite of ours and we get our christmas trees from Ruxley Manor as the kids admire the live reindeer. Coming from central london, the standard of christmas trees is always better and significantly more affordable than in town. The plants selection is adequate I would say. Considering the size of the plot, more area is dedicated to 'things' and equipment. The plants area doesn't give the impression of having much out of the ordinary which might have been expected from a place so large.
