If you are a Driver's Ed instructor, perhaps... ;-)
I had rented a right-hand drive Versa in Ireland and I still wince at home many times I bashed my right elbow into the door when I went to shift on the first day...
Anyway, I rescind my previous comment. The wheel is indeed on the right.
"Is that by business unit?"
It must be... I got wind of it from a buddy of mine who works for CSC in the Midwest. We assumed it was company wide.
They figure that come April, there will be another large round of layoffs. (after getting 3 months of work out of them, and not having to paid for accrued vacation during that time)
CSC employees (at least in the US) can *not* accrue any new vacation time through the 1st quarter of 2009. So after they use their mandatory 7 days before Christmas, and if they don't have any other vacation days banked up, they won't be able to take ANY time off until April '09.
We have Hercules (and, ahem, z/OS) running on a Macbook - and it actually performs quite well!
It is good for porting and lightweight testing.
I wouldn't want to fire up CICS & DB2 or anything like that.
zLinux is slow on real 'z' hardware - there is so much emulation and other voodoo going on under the covers that it is and always will be a slug...
The next 4 years should be, well, interesting...
Kalashnikovs??? How ironic. 15-20 years ago no self-respecting gun junkie would own some damn commie ruskie hardware..
I'd go for a Walther PPK, just for the 00 cool factor...
Anyone know where I can pick up an Aston Martin - cheap??
Actually, I voted this morning with a just a black pen and both sides of a ledger sheet of paper. Fill-in-the-circles, that sort of thing. The machine that tallies the votes was sitting right there in the room. You insert the paper (through a cardboard sleeve so nobody can peek at your choices) and it scans the blacked out circles and immediately processes your vote. They'll come collect it later after the polls are closed and the information will be downloaded to the county systems. If any problems arise, they can go back and review the paper ballots by hand.
Piece o' cake.
I was just there 45 minutes ago... Number 17 in line at 6:14AM. That's quite a turnout in a tiny little village of coal miners and farmers. (and one IT geek)
Our 'blue hairs' have retired over the years, and a younger (50-ish) crowd of women have taken their place... They'll have a long day ahead of them. Hats off to them.
"Or maybe it's just designed for getting lardy-arsed yanks to and from the McDonalds a mile away..."
No, because a true blue lardy-arsed yank would be going through the drive-through... I don't see any functional windows in that thing.
25MPH isn't even fast enough for most residential streets here, much less a multi-lane main road. Forget about the freeway.
Ditto to the Escalade comment above.
And given it's a Chrysler, I'm sure the tranny will go out shortly after the warranty ends.
Can't wait to see it on Top Gear... (with a 2 year delay before it arrives on BBC America)
