The need for speed
Reminds me of something a old BOFH told me back in PFY days.
In terms of the cost of DR, never underestimate the cost saving a speeding techie with a boot load of DLT tapes in their car.

I concur. A e-bike may be a gateway to the patent taking up normal cycling but didn't because of the initial fitness barrier. Could be interesting to see how this pans out.
Of course, if half of them get nicked or end up in a canal because the owner doesn't care for them as much as they would it the asset was their own it would be particularly good value for money.

Which is probably what they did. The fact that they all had to sign an NDA to keep their severance suggests they got the best they could. If they didn't follow company procedures by involving HR, they would have not even got this and would have been hung out to dry.
HR kept the damage costs to a minimum by removing the lowest paid problem
Back in the late 80's I did a Economics A level, and I distinctly remember the text books (remember them kids) stating that county wide infrastructure, phone lines, train lines, roads etc, are poor candidates for privatisation as there is no way to have multiple routes and therefore no competition. All you get is companies bidding to run it better (cheaper) and skim off the profits.
Seems the Torys didn't read they same book
Works fine for 18 months, back in the early days of ADSL all worked fine for an acceptable speed (for the time) of about .5mbps and then one day, no sync

@A.P. Veening - Fair point, well made ;)
@AC - So the theory is (and remember this was 30 years ago and I wasn't really paying attention to the teacher and only took the class as I fancied a girl doing it too...) that all oil is traded in $ no matter where it is produced. So you have to change your local currency into dollars to get a tub of deceased dino juice, and on the scale this happens this skews the supply and demand curve right to such an extent that it is effectively propping up the US currency and economy.
Well that's what I remember from what was said, but I also bought Appetite for Destruction and learning Welcome to the Jungle was more pressing at the time....
