Evil executives, ггг

'he keeps the things that people owe him in the notes field of their contact on his phone. Then, if he runs into that person, he takes a moment and brings up the list, so he can query them on their progress.'

Из бритишской книжки для детей The Countries of Europe Described, 1850:

KIEF. This is the oldest city in Russia. It is also the "Holy City." It is not really holy, but the Russians think it holy. [...]

ггг

If you wish to visit the caverns of Kief, there are guides with lighted torches to show you the way. [...] There are dead bodies lying inside. [...] They have been preserved in a very curious way, so that they have not crumbled into dust like other dead bodies.

The Russians say, that all these dead men were very good, and they call them saints and worship them. [...] It is sad to see the crowds of people who come from all parts of Russia, to do honour to lumps of clay.

Все так.

Sup cunt?

'Тепер Карпич на фронті. Пішов добровольцем. [...] Рік тому я кричала в слухавку, що він [тітушка] "покидьок, який заробляє на крові" (хоча, звісно, це було занадто сильно сказано). Тепер я молюся за нього.'

Sometimes I think this country consists entirely of fucktards :(

Well, I'll try my best not to express my opinion about the issue.

'If someone cares that much about having absolute control over their team, perhaps you don't want them around. Dictatorial tendencies rarely contain themselves to just one aspect of work. The good managers will realize that hiring by committee is actually better for the company as a whole.'

'In Germany there is currently a "movement" of people calling for stricter immigration control (to abbreviate an endless discussion about what they actually want), called Pegida.

During one of their demonstrations a comedy/satire show dressed up an actor as a "Russian" journalist from "Russia Today", a news caster/online magazine financed by the Russian state.

The Pegida participants were very willing to talk to him. They said that western media is all corrupt and unfree, and that Russia Today is a "welcome" and more honest alternative.'

'The GNU kernel was not originally supposed to be called the Hurd. Its original name was Alix—named after the woman who was my sweetheart at the time. [...] Michael (now Thomas) Bushnell, the main developer of the kernel, preferred the name Hurd, [...]

Later, Alix and I broke up, and she changed her name;'

Угадал все, даже Ранс (Reims), а споткнулся на Вроцлаве!

Я выбрал Vrot-claw, они утверждают что Vrot-swaff. По-моему, там ошибка.

Who hasn't scoffed at the American asking directions to Lie-cester Square or Hol-born? Google is developing a map tool that plays audio clips of place names to save embarrassment. But which places can you pronounce like a local?

Помните смешного поцана, который несколько лет назад нашел баг в activerecord и просил, чтобы гитхаб дал ему работу? (те отказали, я думаю напрасно)

Теперь он есть sakurity.com, где rates start at $375 per hour.

Гугл никакого подтверждения не выдает. Что за Неманов такой был?

'Nemanov was my junior by twelve months, but ever since the age of eight he had devoted himself to a kaleidoscopically wonderful trade. He had a genius for business and eventually realized his promise. He is now a New York millionaire and an executive of General Motors.'

В оригинале вместо executive--директор. Директор чего конкретно в GM? Время действия рассказа ~1907, т.е. некто Неманов мог стать executive в период 1920-30х.

Год назад 18-19го я был на гране нервного срыва. Меня спасало (и заставляло держать себя в руках) только наличие людей вокруг.

20го я думал что мы все здесь умрем, а гнида с дебаркадером будет победоносно сверкать ебалом в кретиноскопе.

А всем innocent данбаским падлам я советую делать ровно то, что они тогда 3 месяца кричали нам: идетеработать. Ой, что, не работается как прежде? Айяйяйяй, життя таке несправедливе.

Короче, встретил беженца--уеби с ноги.

И напоследок, a quiz!

Q: What do you call a resident of Donetsk w/ half a brain?
A: Gifted.

Кто забыл, хочу напомнить, что мы живет в период intelligence explosion и accelerating change.

The notion of an "intelligence explosion" was first described by IJ Good (1965), who speculated on the effects of superhuman machines.

Рубрика "Вечер с душевнобольным rms".
Сезон 33, эпизод 2, 'What is an Injustice?'

  What does release of the code matter, if it would deny users their freedom?
  A proprietary program is worse than no program.  A proprietary program is an injustice.
  We use copyleft to insist: either release your modified version as
source in the same way, or keep it private, but do not distribute it
in a way that would separate people from their freedom.
