I see you also espouse getting rid of time zones altogether, which seems to be the exact opposite point.
My advocacy of getting rid of time zones is separate from my advocacy of getting rid of DST. And are in the same spirit, KISS.

If the world wants to be on DST, fine -- be on DST. But this having to change when I do things four times a year (yes, four -- because I deal with the UK on a regular basis which has different dates for switching) is a freaking PITA.

GMT for everyone? Hehe. I am fine with getting rid of DST, but be realistic. Getting rid of time zones helps no one.
What are you talking about? It will help anyone who ever communicates with someone in another time zone. So, when you tell your co-worker two time zones away, the meeting is at 14:00. There is no question about when the meeting is.

You do not get extra sunlight at the end of the day. The sun is setting at the exact same time regardless if you call it 6:00 pm or 7:00 pm. Especially as someone running their own business you should be able to set your schedule however you like.

I think we all should have the same time! And where I live it should be like it was!
I agree, GMT for everyone, everything, everywhere, all the time. End all time zones and "daylight savings".

Yeah, was -3 F Thursday, but 40 F+ today and highs are supposed to climb into the high 50s / low 60s by Thursday. Spring finally showing on the horizon...

Well if that's true I wish it would have the effect of getting me better raises. Haven't seen a raises over 2% in a decade. Three of seven of the team have left already...

And, no Communism is not the answer. Free markets work well for most things, but exploitative capitalism is just as extreme as Communism.
Yeah, in the end it really comes down to needing people not to be jerks every chance they get. Unfortunately, a large portion of mankind hasn't learn to avoid that yet.

My company, HP, has mandated 30% onshore, 70% offshore.
*sigh* - so disappointing to read things like this.

Wtf would you knowingly train your replacement?
I admit it seems a bit loco, but I suspect it is something along the lines of leave with nothing, or train your replacement and get a severance package. While you or I might have the reserves to be able to afford to walk away in that situation, plenty of people don't.

Exactly what I have trying to drive into these guys heads. Barbs suck, period! Solo dont mean shit when it comes to this games end game content.
Oh, that's right. I forgot we decided to let you be the arbiter of the correct way to play games. If we don't play them like you do, we are doing it wrong. Sorry 'bout that... carry on. Confused

Looked at upgrading my Shields on the Clipper -- saw the price and said to hell with that. Sold it bought a decked out Corba. I'm a little short of having enough to get a reasonably equipped Type-7 and still have enough to cover insurance and trade capital. So, I'll probably get a Type-6 and do rares until I build up another $10M or so then go with the Type-7.

But first I think I'll take at least a few days break from the game... need it after recovering my "Friendly" status with the Feds. That failed pirate and shipping mission in the Clipper really killed it. Took a long time to get back to Friendly.

Speaking of the Barbarian, its out right shameful how Blizz has destroyed this once beloved character. Cant DPS for shit, and his survivabilty on the front line is disgusting compared to the other classes. And Blizz for some odd reason refuses to fix the Barb.

And please don't tell me otherwise, I play with my Brother who plays this game non stop and is well over level 700 on the paragon levels. And we see it all the time, no one wants to take Barbs on the Greater Rift runs over level 35.
Well I don't know about when you have 700 paragon levels but a Furious Charge Barb with the Raekor Set crushes T6 up to at least 300 paragon levels...

Oh, that makes some sense. Hmmm, didn't even consider that -- I kind of think the of HOTAS and keyboard as an either/or situation.

I use that. Really good stick for that price, though for ED you do have to make use of modifiers to have all the important actions on the stick only. It took me a few days to get comfortable with it, and I occasionally use the wrong modifier for an action. (target nearest instead of supercruise is one that happens a lot on my setup). I use the hat for docking precision controls, which is a bit weird but seems to work ok.
Modifiers? As in third party programs?
