If you say that getting the money is the most important thing
You will spend your life completely wasting your time
You will be doing things you don't like doing
In order to go on living
That is, to go on doing things you don't like doing
GLEAN = anagram for ANGEL
PERSPECTIVE = synonym for ANGLE
I noticed the perspective/angle synonym and briefly considered that it was a LR indicator. But it would make an even better rorschach technique. If you could devise some carefully designed clues with multiple answers, over a period of time the answers given by your opponents would reveal their characteristics depending on which answer they found.
My wifes Surface Pro 4 worked perfectly yesterday
Today the type cover ( physical keyboard ) no longer works
It's not visible in Device manager
Reset to defaults ( basically re installs Win 10 )
Googling tells me thousands of people are affected by this
What a piece of expensive crap

I've been getting lots of BSODs on my work machine since updating, updates are completely out of my control and will give me 15 minutes notice of a computer restart.
Microsoft have really elephanted things up with their recent releases.

Fixed that for you. I was in the middle of working when Microsoft decided enough was enough, it's time for you to reboot and install the update. I dislike the lawyers that like to go with class action lawsuits, but I think there is merit for a suit in this case for the stupidity of the automatic reboots and lost time and code.
Honestly, based on the griping I see from surface users, I just don't understand how MS can keep selling them.

I certainly enjoy how he starts out with very primitive simulation models, with actors of varying degrees of greediness and trust, as pure mathematical / algorithmic concepts devoid of any kind of "moral" or "politics", showing how pure greediness and egoism and distrust is most counterproductive, regardless of ethics and ideals.
Then he moves gradually up "the biological ladder", observing manifestations of the successful behaviour patterns in the primitive simulation models in higher organisms.
Ridley's book is certainly not the only one in its field, and approach. "The Selfish Gene" is a predecessor in the the same line of thought, and there are many others. But "The Origins of Virtue" is written in a fascinating, easy to read style. I really should dig it up an re-read it soon!
I experienced a serious violation of trust a few weekends ago. I thought the whole band had committed ourselves to playing a gig. I showed up, waited for an hour, called them up, and found out they were just getting loaded up. I left the gig and left the band right then and there.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
