There were serious injuries like partial blindness, even.

And the document said that injuries started being reported almost immediately. I can see an investigation also happening that looks into how they managed to avoid scruitiny since that's a pretty big crack to fall through.

Buy the graphics card, I said. Buy the cable to go with the graphics card, I assured myself.

The cable doesn't fit the card, or the power supply, I found. Rummage through your old garbage, find your modular power cables, I think smartly.

Cable's gone, I donated that, I recall.

Drive to my folks' place, nag my brother for his cables, and rummage through my garbage there. Success and nope, respectively.

Drive home, mash brother's cables against power supply. Doesn't fit, naturally. Gnash teeth.

Regret ordering two-day shipping on the graphics card I can't use and begin shopping for a new power supply, I decide. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Funnily enough it was full of yorkie skin. Like, a bulk amount.
I'm trying to imagine some interplanetary boutique handbag/accessories store selling only goods made from flayed puppers.   
Hah, I've been playing Rimworld too the past few days. Getting myself hyped up for the 1.0 release.

M: "We want to follow this industry standard specification when developing our products".
E: "Ok, the standard says we need to do X, Y, Z."
M: "Ugh, that's a lot of work.  Can we pick and choose the parts we want?"
E:  :o

Seriously - why is this a debate? I can see having debates about "do we really want to do it then, given our resources, etc." but saying "We want to say we follow it but we don't want to actually follow it..." ugh.
Dont get me started on that.  I used to be an industrial draftsman. There is a widely published and very useful standard created by the ASME. It clearly specifies how to define datum structures, make dimensional callouts on the sheet, and how to properly project the views, amongst other things. It is very handy, and works great--- when people fucking follow it.

Oh good. I was having a small inner crisis at work today wondering if it's just the store I work where people are entirely incapable of performing the specific steps their jobs require - including using standards that are supposed to be on printouts at each and every person's station - or if it's just universal. I guess it's just universal. Not that I'm trying to compare min-wage thrift store processing to engineering design.

Is it also universal that people go out of their way to be complete assholes to everyone else? Because that's also becoming more and more of a problem at my job.

Also, wierd, just curious but when you say "plane", do you mean a mathematical plane or one that flies? I'm having slight difficulty wrapping my head around it.

Heh, he means — I mean I guess I can't say for sure, but I'm fairly confident that he means — a flat, as opposed to curving, surface, which is to say, a mathematical face.

Or maybe it's a misspelling of 'plain'? As in, "you can't call this surface a datum, because it's not plane[sic]. It's way too fancy!".

You could always try to talk to Tiruin and fix things.

I'm hoping to, but our wildly divergent time zones make it difficult. Still, I'm not sure how much good it'll do, anymore. It always seemed like Tiruin and I had trouble communicating, and up until now I thought it was just your basic Wittgenstein "if a lion could talk, we wouldn't understand him" problem of totally incompatible cultural backgrounds, but, in spite of my best effort, I can't take this new exchange as anything other than intentionally malicious distortion. It's tremendously disappointing.

Thaaaaat said, I put that in small text for a reason, haha. I just wanted to, you know, register my objection rather than let Tiruin's characterisation go unchallenged; I'd rather let the matter drop out of this particular thread for now.)

Hard to imagine Tiruin acting maliciously towards a plant, let alone another person. Really the last person you'd think of here.

 I'm sure commication issues were the cause.
