I live in Wisconsin, I knew it was a bust before it even began. Foxconn had done the same thing before in a couple other states.... EXACTLY the same thing. People lost their homes, there was a huge investment in roads, sewers, etc. And nothing. The WisGOP gets to hang their hat on this one, in it's entirety!

Let’s check in with that 30,000-job $10bn Trump-Foxconn Wisconsin plant. Wow, way worse than we'd imagined
There ain't no problem that can't be solved with the help of American horsepower – even yanking on a coax cable
With so many cloud services dependent on it, Azure Active Directory has become a single point of failure for Microsoft
Microsoft? More like: My software goes off... Azure AD, Outlook, Office.com, Teams, Authenticator, etc block unlucky folks from logging in
The HPII was Ok but the real workhorse was the HPIII. Never had a problem with them, NEVER. The IV would occasionally need a P/S, that was when HP LJs started going downhill. Using a 2300 now with no issues!
There's a place locally that rebuilds toner carts with new image drums, top notch! Only had a couple bad ones and they replace them immediately.

The Young Ones was a fav of mine, uproariously over the top. The only episode I remember was when somebody (can't remember his name now) found a bicycle in the horribly disgusting bathtub, while taking a bath in the same! Good Stuff!
Edit: It was Neil, just looked it up. I kinda Identified with Rick, not sure if that's good ro bad....!

Made-up murder claims, threats to kill Twitter, rants about NSA spying – anything but mention 100,000 US virus deaths, right, Mr President?
We dunno what's more wild: This vid of Japan's probe bouncing off an asteroid to collect a sample – or that the rock was sun-burnt

There's gold in your biz's processes and mining them is the future, says bloke behind topic's first practical guide
Jeez, you'd think this would be Part-and-Parcel for developing a Customer Facing process. I think about when I (as an IT Manager) brought into the company I worked for a new phone system and setup the menuing system to route incoming calls to the various departments/customer service agents. It took 6 months to get it finalized only to find out that most calls went to the Operator (a position we tried to eliminate) because people just hit "0" anyway.
We regret to inform you there are severe delays on the token ring due to IT nerds blasting each other to bloody chunks

You'll never get Huawei with this, FCC tells US telcos: Buy Chinese kit and you won't see another dime from us
Motorcycle trip, been riding 8+ hours. Believe me when I say you can't fall asleep behind the wheel (bars) of a motorcycle but there comes a point when you can't ride any longer (hallucinations for one).
Checked into a hotel at 2AM, got a reduced rate because I was only gonna be there a few hours. Went to my room and opened it and as I walked through the threshold I noticed I was entering the wrong number room... but the key card worked on it! I tried the room across the hall and it worked there too! Found my room and it worked there too!
I'm under the impression that once the key card is activated it opens *any* room in the hotel!
