OK there is a shortage of GPUs. But is anyone actually going to pay £1900 for a 1080ti (normal price £700-£800)? by rainbow3 in Economics

They are so high-end that there is only one ownership case: money is no object. When $2000 is nothing relative to your financial picture, it doesn't really matter whether the best video card is $2000 or $3000 or $5000.

We chase corporations, but they are fundamentally profit machines and can't be blamed for externalities. Government should be solving this problem with regulations.

Is it common for an HOA wanting to be listed on your homeowners insurance? by CTRL_ALT_PWN in personalfinance

[–]ctarbet 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The HOA should have their own insurance that covers the clubhouse, grounds, shared whatever, playground, liability, etc.

I'm leaning toward, "being taken for a ride". The HOA is supposed to have insurance on behalf of the members, not the other way around.

Complexity in IT-Projects by tomred93 in InformationTechnology

[–]ctarbet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My ISP has this grossly over-managed ITIL-style support system where everything is a ticket with a feedback survey blah blah. What a waste of my time. I should be able to call a legitimate fellow IT person who is ready and able to SSH into whatever and fix the issue. Hi Dave, bye Dave.

Sales quotes are 3-ring binders with 200 pages. I have to search through 199 pages of MIS-major business-jargon BS to find the one page that has bandwidth and dollar signs.

Sounds awesome. I want a spirit crystal in my inventory for sure. Reminds me of Warhammer.

Original post (this time around) was in r/funny - that's why the title says "from r/funny".

Starting a 1:1 program - Logistics Question by jbfestus in k12sysadmin

I read discussions like this and I dream of the cash you guys have. 10% loaner device surplus...asset management software...project specific garbage cans, WTF....putting cases on chromebooks, lol...LEASING OMG!

Sounds like a dream scenario. Things are going to be fine. If you have trouble hauling all the power cables, I recommend big black garbage bags. You'll be able to carry about 20 x 2lb devices in a large milk crate 1000ft before exhaustion.

Lol, how does he not not add links after bringing something like that up? 700 upvotes and all of them had to Google "colbert sendak". You are a hero!
