I am wondering if it's caused my posting from two different devices and/or maybe being logged on two different ways. I am currently the latter. Yesterday I posted using my laptop and my phone and experienced lplo at least twice.

Need to come up with a good test.

They took a charter to the uncharted.

My theory is that the code for this website isn't very good.

Good theory about effect/affect. I have few stylistic rules for papers from my lab. One is that "impact" may not be used as a verb.

Bobcats. The real ones. See one or two virtually every time I go there.

Bobcat/Coyote Encounter at River Legacy Park in Arlington, Texas DFW Urban Wildlife

There are also cougars from time-to-time, but that's something different. ;)

Corporate talk is unbelievable. I just cannot relate to people using words and phrases like nugget, gem, deep dive, synergy/synergize, empower, content, game changer, bandwidth, etc. and the worst of all - win-win.

How about Key Opinion Leader? Stakeholders? Granular?

"At the end of the day" That one used to bug me. "At the end of the day, it's all about people".

No, at the end of the day, it's all about going home.

"Take this off-line"

The one I hate the most - "solution"

Heh. I literally used "win-win" less than 5 minutes ago. But in general, I despise most corporate speak.

We tend to use that one a lot, but to be fair, we're talking about liquid mixtures of chemicals, so....

Mojo31 11-02-21 09:39 AM

We bring a certain synergy and bandwidth to the table with our solution so we both enjoy a win-win at the end of the day as long as you get your ducks in a row and don't move the goalpost.

WTF does that type of thing mean?

Mojo31 11-02-21 09:40 AM

In my last post, I tried to string out question marks. The censor cried foul.

I don't accept checks, cash only.

I'm using Duck duck go as my browser. No lplo problems . However, there is no refresh button. Inconvenient
