Restore your old links. :) That would be a start.
the daily news links? that was a ton of work for no money. but it was my choice to do it so i shouldn't complain.
patnet is probably one of the sites where you can say whatever you want.
yes! except for spam, threats, and porn, and i'm not that picky about porn. :-) i suppose i have to remove copyrighted material if the owner complains, too.
but the new idea is to let people be gods in their own categories, with the ability to delete any threads they want. if you don't like it, you can start a new category.
and to sort the front page threads and each category page by likes - dislikes.
not sure how it works on reddit, but what do you think of start their own categories and be the moderators of them?
so you'd start a category like http://patrick.net/chickens and then you can:
delete threads in that category
delete comments (in addition to thread creator having that ability)
ban users from creating threads in your category
upload a style sheet for your category, and a banner image
and maybe there could be some revenue opportunity for category owners, like optional donation button and/or google ads? but then people who post threads might feel they are working for free for the category owner.
Post and comments are listed in order of karma score: likes minus dislikes.
There must be some kind of time factor as well, or really popular threads might stay up forever. Everything on the home page seems to be from less than 10 hours ago.
So it could be something like "first show today's new threads sorted by karma, then yesterday's..." etc
Nesting of comments is confusing. I prefer simply quoting comments.
Wow, Google Maps is just so wrong on this one. The address I gave Google Maps is 2601 Mission Street (view source for this page), but their map shows a point way up by the Presidio.
Hey, maybe this is an opportunity Patrick ?
So can I take some of their traffic?
How should I change Patrick.net do to that?
Cool office space in the old Phelan building.
Uber France CEO Thibaud Simphal and Uber Europe GM Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty were both taken into custody today in Paris. The AFP first broke the news. The police started investigating Uber in November 2014 and raided its office in Paris in March 2015.
The two executives were charged with two different allegations. First, according to them, Uber is running illegal taxi operations. Uber has been struggling with this charge in many countries, starting with the U.S. In 2010, the company had to change its original name from UberCab to Uber as taxi companies didn’t want to create any confusion.
Second, the police said that Uber France is concealing digital documents. It’s hard to tell what the police was looking for when they raided the French office in March. But apparently, some documents are missing and slowing down the investigation.
Their actual crime is providing a better, cheaper service at the expense of entrenched interests who have great lobbying power.
Got it fixed for $135 at this place in San Francisco:
They did it on the spot in front of me and it seems as good as new. I'm happy with that.
Ah, they develop #rabbitmq
are looking for aloof candidates. The more keen you are on working with the recruiter and the more urgency you have to get to work, the lower in the pile your file goes.
i have to say that women are like that too. the more aloof you are the more they seem to like you. if you're really hot for them, they lose interest.
Slack’s valuation soared to $2.8 billion in less than two years, and has doubled in the past six months alone — all without any big marketing campaigns. The startup’s adoption curve and rave reviews are something many founders and investors dream about, but few actually achieve.
Enterprise startups in general have been on a tear over the past few years as the “consumerization” trend continues to churn and the ascendance of Big Data continues to transform the way business gets done. Slack is by no means the first enterprise collaboration tool to gain serious traction, but the startup has made strategic choices — from product design to enterprise contract structure — that have put it on track to generate massive adoption and add value to companies across verticals.
Or just wait forever essentially, like me, banking a few thousand a month in savings on rent that was and is way cheaper than owning the same small house on a cash flow basis.
It's been a fine ride and I regret nothing since I was pretty diligent about saving and investing all that money. Seems to have come out about the same financially as owning. So they got the appreciation, but I got the savings and stock market gains.
Worse than that, employers treat applicants terribly when hiring, often forcing the use of horrible 3rd party funnels such as Jobvite which require the user to re-enter a lot of data that is on their resume anyway.
Then, your first experience with them may be being told to take some oneline test rather than have any human contact at all. That's pretty insulting, because they assume it's OK for them to take up an arbitrary amount of your time and effort because, after all, they are such a great employer and you are just one more applicant. http://patrick.net/companies/21 did that to me. Not a great start to an employer-employee relationship.
And then, if you don't get the job, it's somehow acceptable for most corporations to not reply at all rather than actually tell you that you were rejected, much less why. So you just have to wait around and eventually figure it out when they don't answer. That was my experience interviewing with http://patrick.net/companies/Square and it seems pretty typical.
Fortunately, there are close to 1000 tech companies in SF alone, and at least 1000 more if you look down the peninsula and in the east bay. This means it does not make sense for an applicant to put in lots of effort applying to any one company. It's just not practical for the applicant. Companies should realize this and if they want applicants should simply have a "mailto" link with the job in the subject line and email address to collect resumes.
Yes, definitely going to be a hot field.
Hillfuck is a cockwhore slut to wall street, extravagantly gagging and grunting her ravenous hunger for their genitals, shitting herself in ecstatic incontinence when Lloyd Blankfein tears the flesh in her throat with savage, insensate thrusts.
Apocalypsefuck, is that you?
no, just screwing around with things as a test. will delete soon.
Surprisingly, a lot of rural areas heavily restrict even the most basic of food prep outside narrow zones, which just so happen to be owned by one or two families.
I think you found the problem right there. The law is used by some businesses to prevent competition by other businesses.
It seems that the ruling applies to just a single driver:
Its an app theyve worked on for the last year thats meant to quickly getregular people engaged in articulating and debating political positions. If that sounds like asteep order for the Millennial generation, Brigades team has tried to tamp down expectations. Theyve tried to make the product as simple as possibleas it enters private beta this week, so that its easy for lots of people to pick up. Parker repeatedly stressed that Brigades current form was just a beta, and the company had been actively courting feedback from testers. Thats a big 180 from the flashy, celebrity-laden unveiling of his...
allow the average consumer to make a little cash by picking up Amazon packages at various retail locations and dropping them off at their final destination.
i like it. kind of an uber for packages.
concerts are the same way these days.
this all seemed inevitable to me too.
So what the hell do we do? What is the best way of remembering all those passwords, especially for an absent minded, disorganized person like me.
keep a pgp-encrypted file of your passwords. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pretty_Good_Privacy
then you have to remember just one password to use it, but unlike those other services, the password file is always on your computer alone.
and be sure to delete the unencrypted version of file after every time you decrypt to retrieve a password. just in case someone steals or gets into your computer.
Sad that honest competition with state monopolies is illegal.
Is the issue getting a new screen or not being able to install it yourself?
The Royal Society, where Mr. Hunt is a fellow, also sought to distance itself from the comments as some critics called for him to be removed from its rolls.
Seems to show that freedom of speech anywhere is merely theoretical, and is null and void the moment it questions current political orthodoxy.
Why is there no law against firing someone merely for speaking his mind? Maybe I don't agree with the guy but he certainly should not be fired.
