    Job Thread

    As someone that has been on both sides of the fence (finance and accounting), 1) they are completely different things. 2) Accounting you can get away with not really knowing the business, as long as those debit and credits tie. 3) Depending on your history, you can get away with it by saying that the position wasn't represented fairly to you - but you really only get that card play once because if you start moving that several times, it can get ugly. Over 25 years now, I've had 9 different places of employment. Sometimes it's just hitting the right place at the right time. My current position is one of those situations.

    What Can Be Done to Fix this Mess?

    Agreed - see Texas Rangers.

    It's amazing your sorry ass isn't around here except when we do a board upgrade.

    It is going to get worse before it gets better

    Since it's local to me and all, at least the Sox aren't the Texas Rangers. They are dreadful and have zero payroll flexibility. Texas will have a worse record then the Sox, IMO. Hahn has taken the Cubs/Astros model so it will be 2020 and they'll win 90+. This year? 60-100ish.

    Today’s game PPD

    This year's weather is insane. It'll be 95 on November 1, when game 7 of the World Series is going on, in some northern state.

    2018 Democrats thread

    QUOTE (StrangeSox @ Apr 6, 2018 -> 10:26 PM) Holy moly I'd never thought I'd see this from ss2k5 (Sanders is more of an old school New Deal welfare capitalism guy than straight up socialist, FWIW) Well, I'll agree with him. This from a guy who hasn't posted in the filibuster for 4 or 5 years.

    Welcome Back!

    It's been some good times. At least I know Gage is alive still.

    ITS ALIVE!!!

    You may not be able to reach the site sometimes. It's going to depend on where you access from. It takes 24-48 hours to totally stabilize. The intermittency is because you're accessing the site through a different route each time you log in and sometimes it hasn't totally propagated across all the name servers yet for different ISPs.

    Ebola in the USA

    QUOTE (Knuckles @ Oct 15, 2014 -> 10:11 PM) I live about 15 minutes from Dallas, maybe this is a stupid question but should I be worried? Um, no. Be prudent, not worried. I work with people that are in from all over the world this week, and I am going to Europe in a week in a half. You can't stop living. Just be aware of your surroundings, and be prepared that there's some sick folks who need help, not shunned, every step of the way. P.S. I work 2 minutes from DFW Airport. Big deal. I work with people who live near the neighborhoods effected. Big deal. Again, just be prudent and aware, not worried.

    Corporate Profits vs Hiring

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Jan 3, 2014 -> 09:09 PM) Just like the modern financial industry!! (/rimshot) Something like that. I am living in the middle of that right now. But of course, I can't say much. Go figure. I think we can all agree that business in general is pretty messed up.
