Using your phone at work? REPORTED!
:rollingw:

A sore point. Last year we were told to sign a declaration that we wouldn't use our phones at work.

As we need to use smartphones to keep on top of the job we're not about to give them up, but some people did sign. I refused on the grounds that it's MY phone for which I pay the bill so it's up to ME how I use it.
My boss wan't impressed but I didn't care. He was like *'sigh* FFS, Scargy!'
He is a nice boss.

Without it you'd have to stay in contact by snail mail...?

Came to this thread to see if Shady's absence had been noted and I see others have indeed noticed it. Hope she is OK.
I sent Shady a private message on 1st Feb asking if she was ok, but I haven't had a response.

I am now quite worried (as I'm sure others on here are).

I sent her a PM too and haven't received a reply.
Worried too.

That's a relief (utterly selfishly, it means I can discuss The Orville with someone when it returns).
Isn't it finished? Like, cancelled?

No.

At Comic-Con last summer it was announced that The Orville was moving from FOX to Hulu. Season 3 is (said to be ...) scheduled to begin in late 2020 on Hulu.

Whoever here's altered Rynner's writing under his avatar to 'gone but not forgotten', that's a lovely touch and thank you.
Sorry if this a dim question is Rynner still with us? I did enjoy reading his posts over the years

He isn't 'with us' in the sense of being an active member, but we have no reason to believe that he has left the land of the living.

The short reason why is that he was against our attempts to reform the board; indeed he took it personally.

I wish he hadn't.

His last post is here:

After interesting and courteous PMs we have reached an understanding and I am DELIGHTED to announce that @Schrodinger's Zebra is returning!

She isn't "staying" because she didn't flounce off. She left properly and it's only because she very kindly picked up and read my PM that she is back.

Which is wonderful!

It also occurs to me that being Schrodinger's Zebra she is adept at both being here and not being here with striped elegance.

Reversing the polarity and modulating the output? Works every time.
Even Dirac didn't think of that solution.

I wonder if reversing a collapsed wave function is what is going on it time travel (should it even be possible) ?

It's "not fewer"!
No, I believe it can be argued that the word 'fewer' would only apply if We were all just numeric quantities. The departure of some might be said to make us fewer, the loss of others will make us collectively-less.
