Re: Sounds like a solution looking for a problem to solve
You use the word "geeks" in a pejorative sense. I am proud to be a geek/nerd.

If they could modify the deflector array to emit a thoron pulse each time the vessel approached a piece of space debris, that would likely deflect debris away from the ship. Also, alternately polarising the warp nacelles could theoretically ensure that larger pieces would be transported into the delta quadrant with no loss of energy to the warp core.

I actually can't believe that you wrote any of that, especially that last bit. I am staggered.
Some of the women engineers (electrical) that I have worked with are the finest programmers that I have had the privilege to work with. For the record, I am male.
Yes and the fuckers in the Boeing boardroom still get to take home handsome salaries. The fucker-in-chief makes US$30 million a year. It's fabulous to watch him squirm in this video below:
where you just scan your boarding pass just before security checks
This is very common, especially for pax that fly without checked luggage.
That scan is just for the purposes a total head count and for a record showing that a pax is about to pass through security and will be entered a secure area. This also allows the airline to know if the pax has started to go through the security checks, or if the pax is going to be a "no-show".
The actual pax "identity verification" often occurs only at the boarding gate where the pax's passport/ID is checked against the name on the boarding pass.
A mate of mine kept the scammers going for half an hour. At the end of the process he told the scammer that a message had popped up on the screen. He asked the scammer if he had a pen and paper to write down the message.
He then spelled out the alleged message, “c u n t”.
“Now what does that spell?” he asked, “because that is what you are if you think that I am dumb enough to fall for your scam.”
> Might not look scripted, but they've prearranged the interviews and for how long in advance.
Actually you are partially right and wrong. I have worked in outside broadcast at F1. Only certain interviews are lined up. A lot is flown by the seat of the pants.
I am curious if the court would have given the same ruling if the company had informed its staff that keylogging software had been installed.
But then I suppose the situation wouldn't have arisen because the employee wouldn't have broken the rules he had known that he was being keylogged.
