$10/hr seems fine for a small town in North Dakota, but she’s in London where I’m thinking she’d need a tad more. What’s reasonable where you live?

    Mary Poppins is odd choice, she’s complaining about needing $3/hr more. But she’s a live in Nanny, so room and board should be added as part of her wage, so she should be already making more than $10/hr. Then if you factor in that Mary Poppins is set in 1910, well, the whole premise is ridiculous.

    “Our gang” marketing strategy
    This is how engineering gets into deep yogurt. A marketing dude is at some plush industry day drinkathon, and hears a competitor bragging to a potential customer about some new technology, in the original example, a new firetruck. Your representative butts in, starting the next ten minute conversation with “That’s nothing! Our gang has a firetruck the whole gang can ride on!” Later, you get to figure out how to build it, with zero budget.

    “One of their first experiments with their new cloud-based botnet was mining the cryptocurrency Litecoin. (That second-most-used cryptocoin is better suited to the cloud computers’ CPUs than Bitcoin, which is most easily mined with GPU chips.) They found that they could produce about 25 cents per account per day based on Litecoin’s exchange rates at the time. Putting their entire botnet behind that effort would have generated $1,750 a week. “And it’s all on someone else’s electricity bill,” says Ragan.”

    Damn kid. Tying up the phone line again. They’re all alike…

    You bet your ass we’re all alike… we’ve been spoon-fed baby food at school when we hungered for steak… the bits of meat that you did let slip through were pre-chewed and tasteless. We’ve been dominated by sadists, or ignored by the apathetic. The few that had something to teach found us willing pupils, but those few are like drops of water in the desert.

    This is our world now… the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without paying for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn’t run by profiteering gluttons, and you call us criminals. We explore… and you call us criminals. We seek after knowledge… and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias… and you call us criminals. You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us and try to make us believe it’s for our own good, yet we’re the criminals.

    Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity.

    Itz a thought crime in an economy structured around not thinking much.

    Zero marketing budget? If you can have your competitor sell your product you can cut expenses. Good luck getting them to sell the Fire phone though.

    “By giving developers a way to access AWS resources from within a familiar bit of management software, Bezos & Co have pulled off one of the greatest tricks in business: getting your competitor to help sell your product.” http://theregister.co.uk/2014/05/30/amazon_vmware_stealth_bomb/

    Can’t she just supplement her income by having the brats market her out her weed? — No. Because she is an overbearing narcissist {hoverer} and any ideas bounced of the bitch is wrong automatically. She is like viscious gangs of keep left signs on the hiway of ideas, thoughts, and innovation. That is, any mindway that she doesn’t own or weasle into control of the tollbooths.

    The Washington Post
    3 hours ago – The employees, paralegals making from $60,000 to $80,000 a year, were idle with full knowledge of their immediate bosses and multiple layers …Welcome to the USA…We’re partying fools in the autumn of a heyday.

    Business is closing faster than business is opening. Prediction: More stuff’s gonna close. You can use the internet to turn your car into a jitney service. Work as a paralegal avoiding work for $70K a year with healthcare and dental.

    0 (as in ZERO) as most countries above the USA in the median income has no minimum wage. Perhaps we need to look at those countries instead of using force (the government).
