He's talking about jokes/memes/posts that have been posted many, many times to the point where they are no longer humorous/interesting

Or in the case of an interest based forum, all the theories and Easter eggs people already know and have seen ten times. E.g. "hey guys what if Dumbledore is really Harry from the future".

I connected it to this as well. He wanted to hand select all the coders then they not only dumped the original 15 but more than doubled it to near 50. So he’s in hell. He’s trying to be annoying with the bitcoin alert and also miss meetings to prove he is above them and get away with things they cannot.

>> he's in hell

Hell would be a good thing for Gilfoyle so I think you mean heaven.

He's in a new environment and he's marking his territory.

I don't know if he's getting dumber, but he is rarely if ever the guy that solves the problems in the series. Gilfoyle and Jared both solved the lawsuit issue by themselves this past episode. And Richard is obviously coming up with plans and solving problems a lot. Dinesh has turned into the guy that just creates problems and it makes him look dumber respective to his counterparts.

Like really, when has Dinesh actually fixed anything for Pied Piper? I really can't think of one. Unless you wanna say the video chat. But that was an accident and it ultimately almost ruined him too.

Don't knock the video chat. Remember that all of them working together spent millions creating and promoting a platform that they couldn't get people to use. And then Dinesh working alone on the video chat interface made a product so easy to use that it spread like wildfire with no advertising budget at all.

Dinesh is the company's front end guy. That's his special talent. In fact I think Richard's talent with algorithms and Gilfoyle's talent with hardware may have hampered them while designing the platform because they're used to navigating the advanced settings with ease and don't realize their customers aren't. Whereas Dinesh has been shown to be lazy, so he understands the average lazy user and made a product he himself would use.

He messed up when he became CEO because that wasn't in his wheelhouse, just like Richard continually has. Even last episode it was clear that Richard would rather fix everything with his coding talent than lead traditionally. If they could just balance themselves so that each person is in charge of the thing he is good at, though, they have all the potential in the world. They just need to let go of the idea that the best programmer needs to make all of the decisions.

I don't know if this was supposed to be obvious, but it took me a bit to realize. Jack spent half the episode trying to ruin Miles' reputation by getting people to think he's a pedophile. At the end of the episode, it turns out he actually is a pedophile (by accident), and Heather has all the evidence they would ever need to ruin his life. Instead, Jack tells her to cease all contact immediately with this much older man. Maybe he's not actually that bad and just wants to play silly pranks on Miles to get his anger out of his system. Or maybe he actually cares about the kids a little.

Couldn’t they have just turned off Gilfoyle’s speakers?

I'm pretty sure if it came to it Gilfoyle could out-hack Richard. He's talented and he's petty.

What does that have to do with turning off speakers

wisebloodfoolheart 2 points

You turn off his speakers and a minute later the sound is coming from Richard's computer, or Dinesh's.

Haha awesome. Although I'm grateful for /u/cjt09's explanation because I've totally forgotten everything I learned about P=NP in Intro to Algorithms other than "it's an algorithms problem" and "It's really hard but people are still kinda working on it even though it serves no practical function".

A particular condescending type of feminism where they act like women are superior to men. (I.e. "Women are so strong and tough, their bodies can produce a baby, I'm so in awe of women, my mama always raised me to treat them with respect because they're all angels", etc.) They think they're scoring points but they're not.

All country music men are this. Edit: Sensitive country music men downvoted many times.

wisebloodfoolheart 2 points

Yeah. I love country music but they do have a problem with putting women on a pedestal. Looking at you, "Female" by Keith Urban. And then you go into the comments section and all the women are like 'you're so sweet for appreciating women Keith Urban'!
