My mom told me as a kid, "if it's big enough to kill you, stay the fuck out of its way."
yep. As my mother always said: "Sure, you might have the right of way. That just means that when you stand before Izanami you can say with confidence that the car that hit and killed you was in the wrong."
A capirote is a pointed hat of conical form that is used in Spain. It is part of the uniform of some brotherhoods including the Nazarenos and Fariseos during Easter observances and reenactments in some areas during Holy Week in Spain.
IIRC you can actually manually move the folder and its associated appid file thing, restart steam (very important) and it would have assumed it was always there from the start. NFC why it wouldn't do the Right Thing, besides Steam of course.
thought about it at first, but at the start i thought "well, if it won't let me move the mid-update-paused game even through its official own custom button, it MIGHT have some reason, so snatching the folders from under it MIGHT not be a good idea, at the very least for that game, or maybe even it would break whole steam".
and then when I was in the phase of "delete whole arma, re-download", i was irritated enough to forget to try that.
You don't like some statistics? Say it's just a bad way of collecting them. But without any proof, that's just a cop-out.
No, you're over interpreting the numbers like he said. Now, based on the numbers, it's more likely that there are more serial killers in the US than elsewhere, but it's important to understand what the statistics actually are no matter what we're talking about.
Pretty much all of them will have some error factor. I suspect this one is under counting, possibly by a lot.
I look at the First Amendment and I see protection for the people and the press. Nowhere do I see protection for a PAC, which is what this case was about. On that basis, how do you think the SC can possibly justify giving PACs First Amendment Rights?
A PAC is an organization of people. At what point do they stop being people?
At what point did the web stop being people?
There needs to be consistency. If the First Amendment doesn't cover a web full of people, why should it cover a PAC full of people? Neither one is listed in the Amendment.
I don't follow. Are any of those people no longer people?
Originalism says that when you consult the text, you give it the meaning it had when it was adopted, not some later modern meaning. -Justice Scalia
So from an originalist perspective, Citizens United was incorrectly decided. Right? Yet, IIRC, Scalia voted with the majority.
You're going to need to explain how you got to here, because I wasn't able to follow. Are you arguing that the people who made up Citizen's United weren't people who had rights to speak freely?
And while we're on the topic, and borrowing from your statement, how do you feel about: "people who have organized themselves into a union and pooled their resources to use those pooled resources to speak out"? I ask because courts have tried to prevent unions from speaking out.
In general I tend to disagree with what they're saying. I disagree that they should be able to force members to pay them. I think that they should be able to speak just like anyone else.
I invest in a company, they don't ask me if they can spend my dividend on a lobbyist. Should they be able to forcibly confiscate my dividend for that purpose? Why not pay the money to me; I should be able to speak for myself.
Yes. As a shareholder you vote on the board of directors (and maybe some other stuff) to decide these things. It's like a republic, which you should be familiar with.
You can try to make a case that there is more force against a union member than against an investor but I have doubts--no one is making the member work in that industry.
The investor bought the piece of the company willingly (or authorized someone on his behalf, e.g., mutual fund). The union is using the force of law to take the union member's money.
Is your concern for the rights of the union member based solely on the nature of its speech?
No. It's about them taking money from their members (with respect to this issue).
Thanks for all the suggestions so far. I'll look into all the alternatives provided tomorrow. So far, Squarespace does look good to me, because they provide everything she would want and the UX seems good enaugh that she wouldn't need a lot of help, and if nobody here immediately tells me that there is shit lurking below the surface I am going to take that as a good sign. Normally at least someone has a quick warglblargl about how something is horrible when talking about these kinds of services.
So since nobody called me, nor have I received my money (what a shocker), I called Complaints this morning.
I was told that the reason nobody from Refunds Department called me is because when the consultant email them a case, they email them back to report on the progress. It is then the consultant who calls the customer to inform them of this progress. The fact that this consultant may not work 24/7 is not a concern, I guess.
I was then told that the Complaints person has to check with the consultant to see if she had received any emails and that she'd call me back by 5pm today. She also said she's email me the interaction number and the link to get back in touch. Apparently, since I last spoke with Telstra, they have actually gotten worse, as neither of the things she promised to do have happened...
I'll call them again tomorrow but at this stage I'm starting to wonder whether I get to involve the TIO .
@Yamikuronue You need to generate the document from it. But the tool that generates it should be able to list the methods without any autogenerated boilerplate documentation comments that say nothing useful and the comments should only exist where they do actually have something useful to say.
"I mean, if they're going on outdated info, how outdated might it be? If they are lying to us, does it really matter, so long as they're not hindering our own goals? Clearly they don't feel us a threat in return, despite our reputation and history. I agree with @cloak15 and say we should keep our decorum and respect, keeping our eyes open in kindness but still being watchful for further 'oddities'."
Husband out with a friend to a baseball game.
4 yo playing in the living room
Me in the bedroom, surfing web.
Door is closed because A/C.
The big kids are home but they are doing their own things in their rooms.
Eventually I could hear the 4 yo playing outside the bedroom door so I decided to check on her.
She is spreading Fruit Loops all over the floor so the dog can have some.
I try to explain while it is very nice to share with the dog it might give her a tummy ache.
I get the vacuum and plug it in bathroom (this is relevant because of the way our apt is wired and I should have plugged it into one of the extension cords from the kitchen).
I start vacuuming, 4 yo starts screaming for me to stop it because she doesn't want me to take it from the dog.
I turn off the vacuum.
The boys heard her crying and came out to calm her (they are super duper over protective of her).
They help comfort her and explain that we don't want the doggie to get sick.
Younger brother takes her back to the LR.
I resume vacuuming.
The circuit blows.
Now the 4 yo is screaming because all the lights are out except the kitchen.
I grab her to comfort her and get one of the boys (who are significantly taller than me to flip the circuit). Three bedrooms, the LR, the BR, and the hallway are all on one circuit and we are all heavy electronic users (between phones, tablets, and computers we probably have 30 devices).
I plug it into the correct spot and 4 yo is settled.
I go back to vacuuming.
Husband walks in, sees the mess with the FL, the boys and me start laughing.
He jokingly turns around to leave.
I tell him I am the worst parent ever while telling him how it got that way.
Even then, the "equivalent experience" typically means 4 or 5 years of experience on top of whatever experience they have listed
That's pretty silly. You're going to learn more in a few months on the job than in a 4 year degree course. This might be another example of UK and US practices being different, or maybe my maths degree counts as close enough to a CS one that I don't need the extra experience but just over a year ago I got a pretty senior developer job with about 5 years of programming experience, none of which was in web development which is what the job was for. I did also have the benefit of knowing they were getting quite desperate to fill the position
But I never gave the dealership either of those addresses...
Ford themselves keeps a huge database of customers that dealers have access to. (I'm not sure if or how many hoops the dealers have to jump through, but "customer called us to perform service" is certainly enough for them to look you up on Ford's database.)
Anyway if you don't want them to use that email address, change it on Ford's site. If you don't want them to spam you at all, ... well it's a car dealership. Find some other place to service your car, haha.
