Now that was good for a laugh. Nice of you to pre-describe your comment.
It's sent, it's out of their hands. End of.
Why? No such agreement was reached before the email was sent. It can be printed and stapled to the town hall's board if the recipient wants. Sheer legal theatre.
Well, they could always change the laws so that obvious holding companies are just attached directly to the mothership, and be like ok pay us. Any degree of company separation that gets laughter when mentioned at the local pub should be amended to 0, and thus taxed directly.
Considering the massive, massive damage their bottom line is taking in terms of writedowns and canceled sales and additional expenses and things of that nature, I would like to dispute the "accounting expertise" moniker. They tried to save a pound, and it's costing them a mint.
Brother laser printer, black and white or color depending on your major need.
Just take your photos to the kiosk or drugstore, they use superior quality real photo stuff, and the cost isn't that prohibitive. For the rest, non-drying non-water-soluble laser toner is the way. Lasts for years and years.
Elon really should count his blessings. If they tried this in China he and multiple others would have been arrested before he had TIME to dare them to.
And they have a much bigger population. And (supposedly) an order of magnitude fewer deaths from COVID and are much further in reopening than our current incompetents. And (according to what the WaPo let me see in a peek) hand the US its ass almost every time they wargame. So... yeah.
The first image I'm pretty familiar with (it has caused a giggle about the office), and the simple explanation is twofold.
1) It's a telemetry and terminal management program. Any station that's more complex than the "Lift handle, attendant pushes button when the handle sets off a buzzer by them" ones are going to have one running on the dispenser. Imagine managing a forecourt with 64 stations and trying to pull logs and push configurations without one.
2) It's probably not running the latest version of software. Fueling is an industry that places emphasis on stability and security more than bleeding edge. I know, this image does not suggest stability, but there's plenty else to go wrong. Imagine having BigNameOilCo telling you that the dispensers keep rebooting in a Fibonacci sequence after lunch or don't recognize chip cards...
The second one... That typo is all on the fueling station co themselves, it comes from the POS system inside.
Well, you seemed to be on point until your third paragraph. When you've seen the same thing a thousand times you don't need to see the thousand and first. Trump is offal that is the culmination of Fox News and the Republican party's gaslighting, almost the embodiment of it, and he needs to go. That's all we need to know, no further attention is needed, certainly not when nobody with any power is actually going to do something about it. They hem and they haw, and they find ways to crawl through their own ass to not actually stop him.
We're watching the ones that are finding ways to not stop him, that are doing further damage to our Republic. And adding them to the list of those to be purged.
No, that's an information problem. The necessary bits of information are much more spread out and more numerous, kept in various systems instead of all in one. If you don't know the pieces of information exist or where they're kept, or just how wide you need to fish your net, you are going to miss things.
The only ones spouting alarmist and incendiary rhetoric are Trump and his proxies. Also they're the ones that take reasoned analyses and suspicions and make them into these farcical things that are then ridiculed by them as alarmist.
So basically you're calling an arsonist your savior.
From a NY Times article about it: While Walmart has faced criticism as one of the nation’s largest gun retailers, the El Paso store where the mass shooting took place did not sell firearms, Randy Hargrove, a company spokesman, said.
Says they account for 2% of gun sales. They're one of the biggest sellers because they have a lot of stores, vs a bunch of FFLs with 1-2 locations.
So yeah, maybe... just maybe... The shooting was at Walmart because that's where the people are, and Walmart stopping selling guns would be pointless virtue signaling?
