Comcast Training Materials Leaked

thaylin Re:Just doin' business (142 comments)

Wait so this is similar because when you go to a store, whose employees sole job to sell you something, it is like when you go to technical support, expecting someone whose sole job is to support your issue? They are 2 distinct types of employees. When I go to a store I expect to be upsold. When I contact customer service for a problem I do not expect to be sold something.

Comcast Training Materials Leaked

thaylin Re:Just don't deal with Americans (142 comments)

Only so many areas that are covered by fios, and only so many houses in those areas, or good jobs in those areas.. Even then we would be dealing with Verizon which is just as bad.... I mean when you have 2 of the lowest rated it is not hard to beat them...

Comcast Training Materials Leaked

thaylin Re:McDonallds should sue ... (142 comments)

Mc Donalds cashiers are there to sell stuff.. That is different from the people in the back making the food. How fast would they start losing customers if the cooks started coming up and tried to pressure you into buying stuff before they would make the food you already ordered and paid for... Or if you came to the manager with a mistake and instead of fixing the mistake they tried to sell you more stuff...

The Billion-Dollar Website

thaylin Why dont we (194 comments)

Put the money for the contract, plus 10% into escrow. Every 10% into the projects completion you get 10% of the money. If you cannot complete it for that price, that is on you, not the tax payers, learn to better account for your work. If you can show that it was due to the government itself then that is what the extra 10% is for, if not and you fail the project we still got that amount of work done and can pass it to the next contractor in the bid to start working on. I am so tired of hearing about these massive cost overruns.

3 Congressmen Trying To Tie Up SpaceX

thaylin Re:seriously? (390 comments)

Actually the president has lots of power outside the laws congress makes. He can veto as you stated. He can pardon people of crimes against those laws. He can direct how money is spent at the micro level below what congress states. He can appoint people who will make decisions on how the law is implemented.

3 Congressmen Trying To Tie Up SpaceX

thaylin Re:Not So Fast... (390 comments)

What satellite blew up on spaceX. And if spaceX is using private money to develop the rocket where is that kicking taxpayers? also thanks to the stupidity of the patent system not everything developed and paid for by the taxpayers can be used without paying other private companies.

3 Congressmen Trying To Tie Up SpaceX

thaylin Re: Politicians - Ignorant, Stupid, or Conmen? (390 comments)

When the problem relates to what they get the money for you will have a point. But as long as the company is spending its own money on the product the government should have no say so in it as long as it is not breaking the law.

"Own on" implies you own the content, not just the medium after the on.

Judge: US Search Warrants Apply To Overseas Computers

thaylin Re:Moving information for Freedom.... (502 comments)

Except that is not the claim here. The claim here is for a search warrant of those computers, not a subpoena for the the data, which is what you are talking about. I have no issues with the subpoenas, as that would not violate the other countries rights, but a search warrant does.
