I'm no expert in this field, but I'm not sure why Kodak is coming n for any more criticism than anyone else for investing in this - they're hardly alone. Their shares have soared, and they have a long queue of people wanting to get on board with them. Furthermore, they themselves are only investing in the technology, not Bitcoin itself - that's down to the individual miners who buy in to it. IF BC goers under, Kodak can still put the blockchain technology to other uses, if they want. And, they have their own power generating plant which is under-capacity at the moment, so can run these rigs relatively cheaply.
Can't say I'd invest in BC myself, but there you go...
One of my DBA's is forwarding me e-mails from some programmer guy we hired a couple of months ago from some outsourced department. It's not the profanity that bothers me, it's just that every time I want a new report, I will have to go through mediation with the HR department.
Yesterday I remember, there was this email from an indian company about outsourcing data mining, sounds interesting, let me look into it.
So I'm a DBA entrusted with securing the nations's data and some new guy downstairs has been sending increasingly offensive emails trying to cajole me into giving him crazy levels of access to sensitive data.
I have reported him to my superiors and I guess he'll be getting his marching orders later...
[EDIT] Just seen the bugger drive away in some crazy looking Mustang. Noisy as hell - must be wasting gas on a monumental basis!
Keep your friends close. Keep Kill your enemies closer.
I now see his post below this one, that's him indeed !
But his last post is relatively mild, normally guns and bullets are mentioned and he uses more explicit language, well guess he's getting older and milder ...
