Re: I wouldn't mind so much..
I hate any install putting shortcut on desktop. I hate them all.

I am by now used to 100 characters per line of source code (RPGLE), but otherwise I completely agree with you. In a far past I put some small C-programs with source on the internet and the most often received comment was that it was legible, something of a revelation to some C-programmers.
SPOILER: As a COBOL-programmer, I am used to legible source, if it isn't, the source is not ready for maintenance, leave alone production.
In my experience that includes cats and dogs.
In my experience, dogs respond better to German. And I know there are American dog trainers who prefer to train the dogs in German (with sometimes interesting results as their pronunciation -and other command of German- is quite often not quite up to standard).
I imagine turning up for a chat with RPI, and explaining that they'd engaged Shearman & Sterling
That is something you don't explain, in all meetings you are accompanied by your lawyer, who will force his/her business card on anyone who fails to tell him/her in a timely fashion of already having received such a business card.
Please remember Dutch kids have been riding their bikes to (and from) school for over a century and most of that time those helmets weren't even invented yet. And the one time I had an accident requiring medical intervention (about 40 years ago, so before helmets), a helmet wouldn't have helped, my eye was saved by my glasses and I only needed a couple of stitches to my eyebrow.
I was with the story until the civilian in a fishing boat. Anyone care to chip in with a reason why the Navy wouldn't have cleared the area of non-essential personnel?
Because that civilian wasn't a civilian but a flag rank (probably retired) officer from one of the dry branches.

I doubt that.. "worked at a place" means he was employed by that company. There is no visible bill until you visit the bean-counter with a detailed report about 6 hours of wasted time. Which might not play out so well in some environments.
There is a small, subtle difference between telling somebody there will be a serious bill and there being such a bill. Just telling him will already bring its own reward (read: punishment for that manager). Having that bill truly materialize is just the icing on the cake.
