Re: Sigh.

I wish the States would write up slow drivers poking along in the passing lane blocking traffic. Technically it IS illegal to do that, but you rarely see the police enforce it. Depending on the town, speeding tickets are the main source of revenue (which is illegal, but is done anyway) and you can get wrote up for going 1 mph over the limit.

Can't tell you how many times I have gotten stuck behind a blue-hair that probably has no business driving on the roads going 25 mph in a 55 mph zone. With a 10 car line behind him/her. Absolutely infuriating.

Re: They would use audio for non sighted customers.

More like.....they couldn't be bothered to disable that system when the kiosks were being designed. Plus the noise level is way too high in those stores with screaming kids, the drive thru speaker blaring, and workers talking in back for an audio system to be useful for any sight-challenged individual.

The order numbers are shouted out.

IKR?? Yesterday, they showed a picture of Spock (A STAR TREK CHARACTER) while mentioning another JEDI article.

Someone needs to turn in their geek card (or we are being trolled by El Reg, knowing the amount of weeping, wailing and knashing of teeth that would ensue).

Re: What a fucking idiot

He graduated with an MBA (i.e. future PHB), so I doubt he had any leet hacking skillz.

Looks more like a personal grudge against the school (maybe he didn't get that awesome 7 figure job coming right out of school he was promised and had to settle for burger flipping at the local MickyDs?)

If that happens, I pray that the ACLU can stop it in its tracks....

Sounds like Great Britain needs a similar organization over there.

Re: Was the Chinese big red button not working?

That was my thought as well. Don't these folks have Range Safety capability or they just let an errant rocket fall where it may? SMH. Hopefully that rocket didn't fall on someone's head.

"Maximizing shareholder value.."

Companies that operate with that mentality over everything else, should be doomed to extinction.

DXC is circling the drain and should die a swift and painful death. If I was looking for a new gig, I would avoid this outfit like the plague.
