Working in the fancy neighborhood is paying dividends. I've gotten $40 in tips so far today.

I think back then I might have just been riding the Zwift Carbon bike, but with the DT Diecuts. With my 2021 Aeroad, I'd have beaten him by 0.2 seconds, instead of 0.1!

given the general crappiness of the gfx engine, I certainly donít understand dropping $$ on a computer to run Zwift

The company has a new stance on sick time which is much more restrictive. Donít want to be bothered with even the slightest length of red tape. And maybe Iíll be ok this time around.

Sick time? What’s that?!?

Theyíre these imaginary days you never get to use. Just like the 7 weeks of vacation I allegedly get per year

Our company gives you Administrative Leave for COVID vaccine side effects so you don't need to use sick leave.

It's that thing that your patients ask you to sign a letter justifying for them.

The other reason I'd want a new computer to run Zwift is that the old laptop I'm currently running it on takes FOREVER to load any of the worlds, after taking FOREVER to launch Zwift.

You need a union.

Is your practice independent? Iíve seen a trend with physicians selling and becoming employed, especially in the Ortho world at my old company.

Yes.

Sadly, it’s illegal for physicians to unionize, or so I have been told.

I totally understand that. LSS has 45-profile tires on her car, but sheís pretty good at parking by back-up camera and has only garfed up one wheel in the five years sheís owned it.

The cameras are wonderful. The Taycan has front and rear cameras, and the cameras on the bottom of the mirrors that give a birdseye view which really makes it much easier. On the other hand, the tires are 30-profile and the wheels are over $2k each, so I'm paranoid like crazy.

We should start a union and uprise against the totalitarian bosses.

DougRNS 11-29-21 05:42 PM

Use self check out and eliminate superfluous labor.

In my case, the evil boss is me. Clearly, the boss is a jerk and needs to lighten up.

That doesn't eliminate any labour; you're doing the labour.

Automated lawn mowers are coming for your job.

My regular laptop is fine as far as launch and loading worlds. But its HDMI socket stopped working. Not just for Zwift, but for everything. It started with sporadic, 1 second drops but got progressively worse. But it didn't seem to KNOW the socket wasn't working, so the screen never shifted back to the laptop display and neither did the sound.
