Just went to a job fair. I keep wanting to say, "I'm a former government employee. I'm not qualified for any position you're offering." I worked for the feds during the continuing resolutions and furloughs when the House refused to pass a budget. Professional development was one of the first things jettisoned. But that's not so bad, it wasn't like we had any modern IT business practices to keep up with. There's the way real companies manage 300,000 computers and users and then there's the Army way.

I didn't mean to come off as insulting. I'll delete the offending comments since I didn't communicate well.

I remember hand writing web pages back in the day because I could write them smaller than what Frontpage generated. But like a lot of coding problems these days, we've just thrown enough hardware at it to make up for lousy software. 
Today the average webpage is about the same size, data-wise, as the classic computer game Doom.

Yes. The natural result of a society that is awash in machine cycles. Time-to-market is more important than resource utilization.

I wish more of Shakespeare's work would get movie adaptations. Quite a lot has but I'd like to see some of his lesser known work appear.

Turns out slime molds stacked INT. Still used charisma as a dump stat.
 
Gelatinous cubes are more realistic than you might have thought....
You don’t need a brain to learn something new – not if you’re a slime mold, anyway. Scientists who watched Physarum polycephalum search for food found that the slime mold could learn to ignore certain chemical threats.

This is the difference in production scale between someone who cooks for themselves at home and someone who works in a busy kitchen. The same sort of gains exists between, say, hobbyist blacksmiths and blacksmiths who operate a forge for a living.

Some of the hand-wringing regarding the "drone" that hit the British Airways jet was just overwrought. And the solutions proposed to the problem of untrained drone pilots bringing down jets were just outright damaging to basically all the science of AI and robotics. And here it turns out that the jet likely only hit a bag.
