All of that.

Well, it isn’t exactly hard to find examples.

The "Post" and "Preview" buttons are dead in Firefox

I had that precise problem on this blog when I switched to Firefox Quantum and the new NoScript. I believe that I solved it by re-enabling the "typepad.com" URL in NoScript. I have been slowly doing a selective re-enabling of URL's as I revisit web sites.

The "Post" and "Preview" buttons are dead in Firefox

I had that precise problem on this blog when I switched to Firefox Quantum and the new NoScript. I solved it by unblocking two URL's: "typepad.com" and "yahooapis.com".

Too good not to swipe, really.

"Campus of the Damned".

Also too good not to swipe:

“Campus of the Damned”.

But they’re less sympathetic than the children in the novel and subsequent films.

Thanks, David, mi photoshop, su photoshop.

I'm home recovering from the flu and had the time yesterday to read through the complaint & the screenshots. The creep factor was off the scales and the image of the Google company hallways being stalked by pod people just kept getting clearer in my mind.

[ Slides stiff one to Darleen. ]

Don’t worry, it’s mostly crushed ice and Night Nurse.

Darleen: Didn't you have a solo blog, back in the day? Get well soon.

Yes, I started my own blog in about 2004, later went to write at Jeff Goldstein's Protein Wisdom. After the last massive hacker attack (and Pixy Mixy's mysterious disappearance - never to let Jeff at least have the old archives) I've moved to VictoryGirlsBlog.

BTW ... the current flu is one nasty one -- the symptoms came on fast and hard last Saturday. With luck, I scored Tamiflu from my doctor within 24 hours and it has helped my recovery.

I also have a bossy RN as a daughter and she's been hectoring ... er ... I mean monitoring my behavior since Saturday ;)

Please, everyone, don't take flu symptoms lightly this season.

Very sad, what happened to Protein Wisdom.

Hal, read . . .

And?

---Along with the followup observation.

I'm not going to bother quoting, both remain entirely valid.

And you're citing a memo---basically quite merely a wish list, rather than We got this done already---where the memo was written up by one of the staff of not merely a failed campaign, but an utterly failed campaign.

Overall, it's one thing to hear a full volume demand of I hate you!! I hate you!! I hate you!! I want you to Die Die Die Die Die Die Die!!!!!!!!!

It's quite something else entirely to note that one is hearing such a demand from a four year old.

Or, functionally a four year old.

@Ian
"is that technically their products are still pretty damn good."

Probably the product of five percent of their workforce. I'd give good odds that they're mostly white males and Asians.

I have a great distaste for Microshaft because I've always believed their ethics to be a bit shaky. The Office suite is bloody handy though.

Ian

Probably the product of five percent of their workforce.

It being a Pareto distribution you'd be pretty close to the mark. I'm not sure what they're working on now, but they don't seem to have had any big product releases lately... at least none that I can recall.

Laurie Penny weighs in on the James Damore saga. Naturally, her first paragraph contains a gratuitous smear and an outright lie.

John Square

From David's Link:

"It is odd that the idea of decency and personal responsibility has now become the domain of progressives."

Riiiiiiiight, Laurie. Whatever you say, babes.

Alice

Naturally, her first paragraph contains a gratuitous smear and an outright lie.

She's shameless.

David

She’s shameless.

It must be strange to write an article premised on the assumption that your readers haven’t read, and won’t read, a readily available document that you’re distorting to the point of perversity.

Strange how? It's pretty much a given. I personally take perverse pleasure in posting links to actual government bills, legislation, the Constitution, etc. whenever a lefty argument about law breaks out. No one ever bothers to look up the actual text of the law, nor established case history.

David

It’s pretty much a given.

It certainly is for Laurie. I’m just sometimes taken aback by how brazen she is. Even Guardian readers are pointing out her dishonesty.

it took me a bit to remember the particular instance, but actually for a [some description] group of people, that's actually become the utterly standard practice, and all of the rest of us are supposed to just go along with it.

At a job I was at, there was some git who was declared to be the new training staffer for the department, regardless of the fact that he was the worst trained in the department. His "version" of training turned out to consist of a string of totally narcissistic videos.

Of one of his "students", call her git(2), I and everyone else within earshot of her could hear her recurringly completely screwing up procedures and picking fights with customers.

The department was allegedly run by git(3), who was basically a sock puppet who would matter of factly repeat whatever lie he was told to tell. One example of such including that training was occurring in accordance with everyone's demands, so why did everyone keep claiming there was no functional training?

And then one day git(3) announced that git(2) was doing an absolutely excellent job and because of that she was being promoted to be the one who announced the new projects and products being handled by the department. For her first department announcement meeting, every question asked to her got an answer of We'll get back to you on that. Finally she turned to the screen she was waving vaguely at, spotted a particular line in the verbiage, and announced that the new product had a particular feature, just like the previous product.

With one voice, the members of the entire department pointed out that the previous product did not have that feature.
