Manhattan. Now a suburb of Cairo.



  • So Facebook has some notion of where I've been, which I think is mostly from Instagram federation. Sure, whatever. It has an interesting idea of the geography, though.

    (Postscript. Before anyone starts making fun of the neighborhood being the real WTF, that icon with the house is not where I live. :P)

    Captain!  Long-range sensors detect an attacking war fleet from the Instagram Federation!

     



  •  Not a problem. The Egyptians gave us $24 in beads and trinkets for it, so we broke even.



  • Obviously Facebook is hosted in another star system. New York is a lot closer to Cairo than to anything in Facebook HQ.

    So now I know what the recruiting agencies are using when they see my resume (saying I'm looking for San Francisco Area) and they tell me about this wonderful gig in Houston, TX.

     



  • Facebook? Last time I tried to make a book of faces they tried to arrest me for assult as I took peoples faces off.

    Seriously though, with all the things facebook is becoming, why are we still using it, or rather why are others still using it, I never have.

    Employers wanting access to your facebook stuff during an interview, I ask for theirs, then tell them I don't have one.
    Next thing though is they will make facebook a requirement before getting an interview. Thankfully I'll probably retire before then, if not, that will mark my retirement.
