I'm sorry for your loss . Tucker sounds a lot like my cat Raphael, who I lost to heart disease and kidney failure a couple years ago. Maybe they'll meet up, wherever cats go when they can't stay here any longer .
Has anyone else experienced this? My IIS 10 server has been functioning fine for several months. Today I get
[HttpException (0x80004005): Could not load type '%Windir%\System32\inetsrv\compdyn.dll'.]
on every single page that uses ASP.Net.
My only guess is that an automatic Win 10 update has changed something but what?
I may not last forever but the mess I leave behind certainly will.
It's Accountant Logic: "I save $5 per unit! We'll be cheaper than the competition!"
It's the same logic that outsourced everything to India, China, and other places where the cost of employing people is a lot lower, and to heck with the effects on the community and market as a whole. Then they wonder why the local market dries up ... and blame the competition for doing the same thing.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
Certainly the consumer masses are to blame for demanding the cheapest goods regardless of where they're manufactured. If we as consumers cared enough to pay more for domestic products the jobs would stay here...wait a minute, I forgot to factor in corporate greed! Nevermind, we're all doomed!
If a company's customer base is made up of its own staff then it's already in deep doo-doo. It makes perfect sense for a company with a large, diverse customer base, especially if it's international. The only flaw would be if literally every employer in the world was to do the same but we are a long way from that.
Yes, but step 3 won't happen. For a while it will look like it's happening, but ultimately it's not sustainable, as you've concluded.
Which is why it's won't happen. Humans are not just passive actors reacting to economic stimuli, we can take intentional actions. We can see it coming, so we're going to do something about it.
Not by rabidly creating jobs out of thin air, I hope. This is currently the "solution", everyone wants to "create jobs", which works for now, but there's no point in creating jobs that are fundamentally useless because a robot could do them. Then you might as well get a robot to do it and pay the human for sitting on his ass.
So, that is exactly what will happen eventually, after stretching the creation of nearly-pointless jobs to the max. We will pay humans to sit on their ass. They can go do something more interesting too I suppose, doesn't make any difference.
This isn't a surprise, we're already doing it with people who have nothing to offer society, there will just be more of them. It's not communism, there's still an incentive to work. But you wouldn't have to, and there would be plenty of people for who there just is no job, who just have nothing they can do that couldn't be automated.

Never having been there, all I know about Wales and the Welsh has come from CP.
That being the cause, it's quite understandable that I doubt it was an accident - and something more "Bill Cosby-ish" in nature. Oh - one more thing - reading the text of the article makes me think that the threshold for calling something a 'rampage' seems to be quite tame in some parts of the world.
