63 I was up a mountain in California with a friend when a park ranger came by our site to tell us the road out from the trailhead parking was going to close that afternoon for repairs. We'd be stuck for almost a week in camp. We were two days up with a very leisurely hike near the summit.

Well we packed up and headed down the mountain at breakneck speed. We made the descent to our car in an hour. In some of the high grade switchbacks I was taking 12 foot strides. That was scary. Just running down a mountain with a full pack.

Am hearing the number of Twitter resignations today is likely over 1,000, though unclear as not all are posting their decision.

Some teams, such as the engineering team that manages Twitter’s core system libraries, are completely gone now.

Posted by: Hadrian the Seventh


I'm guessing BS in CompSci at best. Probably a lot of "certificates" in network-this-and-that from MicroSoft and such, too.

Actual BS/MS/PhD in EE or CompE? Few.

Though there are schools giving out BAs in engineering, now. I have no idea what that noise is about. An MBA path for the somewhat-technical?

Getting a yearly flu shot is pretty much standard for anyone who works in healthcare.

It's in my hiring contract. I've not had an issue with it. Until 2020.

If you don't work in around sick people or take public transportation, you're prolly fine. Flu shots do help lessen infection and death from seasonal influenza. And those of us who don't have the option of being in the laptop class, well, we still have jobs to do on site.

Different lake but same basic situation -

Of the big lake they called Gitche Gumee
The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead
When the skies of November turn gloomy
With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more
Than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty
That good ship and true was a bone to be chewed
When the gales of November came early

242 Heavy lake effect snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 2 to 4 feet in the most persistent lake snows. The greatest risk of the highest totals will be from South Buffalo to Lancaster. The heaviest snow is expected late this evening through Friday night when snowfall rates could exceed 3 inches per hour. Winds gusting as high as 35 mph will produce patchy blowing snow.

Yep, snow was driven west to east across FROZEN Lake Erie, until it hit the Buffalo shoreline and then boom.

The park accross from my In-Laws house was used as a snow dump by the National Guard. The number of missing cars that showed up when all the snow melted in late spring ran into the teens.

262 One time I was running an analysis at work and the Fortran kept failing. Checking everything first because user error was always likely I gave up and called up the help desk. Turns out the error was snow. What! it's like 70 degrees here? How does this even make sense?

Well this Rube Goldberg machine of a Fortran code had to write to and read data from a tape because the IBM mainframe it was written for only had a few Mb of user space. The tape was located in a facility 1000 miles away in Colorado and they were snowed in. A robotic arm had to pick a tape and push it in but they couldn't get in to turn mr. robot on.

I looked at the 20 year old spaghetti Fortran and decided I'd have to change hundreds and hundreds of lines in dozens of routines. Nope. So I told my boss that the analysis will have to wait until somebody can shovel the snow out of the way.

Didn't say it made sense, just that it is the accepted narrative that has been handed down through the ages.

Just like Chagrin Falls, Ohio was so named because the "explorers" who came upon the Falls thought it was the mighty Niagara...only to be told by the natives that it wasn't...and the explorers were, get this, CHAGRINED.

330

so no, backwards, a flueve is a river and riviere is a stream. It's a riviere that flows into a flueve.

I guess the Riviere is just a place where a lot of rivers and streams flow into the mediteranean?

There is an alternative version, where the Indians of the area saw/had herds along a creek that feeds into Lake Erie...hence Buffalo Creek.

Somehow that was connected to naming the area Buffalo.

But I don't buy into that story. Buffalo Creek is a nasty little tributary...especially in relation to the Niagara just a few miles away.
