  1. SpaceX -- Rockets, Spacecraft, and Mars

    I'd hope they use the extra power/space to put in a return option to do some sort of sample return.
  2. Survivor: Kaôh Regōng Trail

    I feel like Aubrey is getting an edit similar to Sophie. She's a quiet woman, so tends to fall into the background really easily, but they keep putting her into all the episodes, and has a relatively favorable edit. Jason, Cydney and Tai (and Scot) tend to be oversized characters, so they keep dominating airtime. Aubrey's the only other person getting screen time. Michelle and Joe have barely shown upfor the past few episodes. Tai's play is really confusing. On one hand he could be paranoid, but he seemed to have a really solid alliance. He has the advantage, and was guaranteed the final 3. Who else would he want to sit at the end with? It seemed like a no brainer for Scot and Jason to keep being the hated pair and him landing the votes... with a crafty use of the idol and advantage, with some of his challenge victories, he has a solid case to win.
  3. Chareerchat II: Production of Means

    We do excel tests with all our managers and analysts. A surprising number of "experts" suck at basic modeling and fail it. Being in Finance, generally I trust people that have been promoted at another fortune 500 company. Disney usually doesn't promote morons from Analyst to Manager, same for most other Fortune 500 companies. Folks from small companies are a lot tougher to judge, since generally I won't know someone who worked there (so no informal referral), and we have no idea if they were VP of running a TPS reportor a legitimate candidate. For folks at manager or above, we usually do 2 rounds of 3+ hour interviews. I put my last Director hire through a brutal 8 hours of interviews between the 2 rounds. I usually tell my candidates that if our hiring process was a joke, you can expect your coworkers are a joke too... so be glad we are tough (or find somewhere else to work).
  4. SpaceX -- Rockets, Spacecraft, and Mars

    Pretty badass. With a low cost sample return mission, it also opens up the possibility of doing mining missions to asteroids.
  5. Sounds like only titancat is available? Happy to still meet up on Sunday, but Mon/Tue got booked up for me unfortunately. Maybe could do something late Tuesday (like 10 PM) if someone is nearby and bored. Will send Titan my phone number to call/text me to work out specifics in case my internet is spotty. For smoe reason I can't write replies on my phone, which is infuriating...
  6. As all of the BWB knows, I don't drink. JK. I pretty much drink anything. I'm fine for doing food and/or drinks depending on how much time people have. Ipretty much eat and drink anything (besides haggas). I'm not particularly high maintenance, so a pub is fine and am not on any real budget either. Afternoon/Evening is probably best for me, and I'm staying at the Hilton in Covent Garden, but can meet up anywhere really.
  7. Lets lock down a time/place. You guys know the town better than me, so let me know what works best...
  8. Tuesday probably doesn't work for me now (have a VC at work late that night). I'm indifferent on Sunday or Monday! Either works, but usually Sunday means we can start in the afternoon. Chances are that I'll stay near Covent Gardens (or can stay by Bloomsbury Sq). Sounds like we got titancat and mountaingoat at least, and can shoot for Sunday. I'll let you guys pick where and a more specific time, since I've got no idea whats convenient and where is good.
  9. Hi all, I'm going to be in London on Sunday March 20th. Let me know if you can to meet up for a pint (and where is a good spot for you). I could do something in the evening of Monday/Tuesday the 21st/22nd instead since I'm around central London (for work) those 2 days. I fly in that Sunday morning and promise to shower!
  10. BWB London Meet up - Thurs 3 Dec

    Sunday March the 20th unfortunately. Got 6 weeks, so hopefully people will pop through the thread!
  11. BWB London Meet up - Thurs 3 Dec

    Land at Heathrow at 4 PM, so probably could make a pub at 6-7 PM. Let me know where in the city works best. Havent' booked anything yet, but might stay with family towards Stratford or hotel somewhere downtown.
  12. Dave, you can probably use a gift amex/visa card.
  13. Bought my wife and I memberships. Now we'll just have to plan the trip!
  14. BWB London Meet up - Thurs 3 Dec

    Might be in London March 20th if anyone wants to grab a beer. Haven't locked down my flights yet, but was planning to fly in Sat or Sun morning. Could grab a beer Mon/Tue evening, but that might be a tad rougher.
  15. 2016 KC WorldCon: MidAmeriCon II Aug 17-21

    Generally they don't bill you up fronteither, so you don't have to float the cash. Going to book the Marriott here. And got my flights booked as well!
