    30K is tiny. :P

    MSFTisMIA is talking about NJ/NY. I'm talking about Toronto, London, Brisbane, Paris.... etc.

    It's all the same.
    8 million in NYC's 5 boroughs and dare I guess another 16 million (my guestimate) in the surrounding metro area. That's not small.

    Yes doing things that way would be better but it's probably not going to happen. Such is life.

    Whatsapp used to be a light application. Not sure what it's like now but that's what made it popular. Light, quick and simple. Also, it's not data hungry.
    the first app to do that ,is going to be the messenger app that I stay with forever :P .

    Yeah, that's still nothing though. :P Take a wander to somewhere else. Outside your comfort zone. That's what you need.



    No worries. I'm not keeping track. :P Take your time. Any questions just ask if you need clarification.
    I think he's still wrapping his head around the fact that:
    1) There is no federal policy on paid maternity leave for women
    2) He lives in the state with the best and oldest example of a state level paid maternity leave program. NJ (my current home state) has the 2nd best and oldest, patterned after his.

    That's a lot to take in. I'm sure your reading assignments for him will occupy him all summer...

    It still baffles me about the paid maternity leave thing in the US. It was the same in Australia until fairly recently though. In Canada it's been around for a fairly long time. Same with health care but that's a whole other talk.

    The books I'm getting him to read could be life changing. :P I have other ones that would probably trouble him even more. :P

    Good morning.

    I've eaten far too much, slept terribly, and now should clean up the kitchen that I'm ready for the 50 km cycling tour later.

    Still no new Whatsapp.

    I don't like the new WP screenshot taking button combination, I take screenshots by accident sometimes.
    It is designed specifically for Lumia phones :-) On the HTC 88X you are likely to make errors.

    I'm using three different CAD packages and I'm starting to get confused. They all do things slightly different. One is 3D so that's quite different. :P

    I find CAD fairly easy and I could teach you the basics of AutoCAD in one day. Depends on how well your mind works. :P I've been using CAD for a while now and I've been doing technical drafting since I was 12.

    The answer and rationale behind it is simpler and disturbing. Short version is that they still don't respect women's rights here to the level that is needed.

    Due to some of the blogs I follow I have a pretty good insight of some the attitudes in some states regarding women's rights. I know some of those states would rather that women just stayed home and raise children and maternity leave wouldn't be an issue. That's without even talking about abortion, etc. Unfortunately this topic starts relating to other topics that we shouldn't get into as we both know where these attitudes stems from.

    The patriarchal system is still very implanted in the US. Especially in the southern states.

    I shared a class with CAD students. My class came after their class was dismissed. One time I entered to see what they were doing and I was so lost and I didn't understand what they were doing

    LOL! Well you would be as it's technical. When I talk about learning CAD basics I'm referring to using the program, not how to draw technically. Technical drawing is a completely different thing.

    Yes I know. Hopefully you get to the time to read and understand. :) Learning is a great thing. Science is a fantastic field and we learn more and more every day.

    It's unfortunate that our greatest discovery, science, is not one we celebrate more.

    A general term is technical drawing because there's different types. I do electrical drawings for example. Mine are industrial and most people wouldn't understand them but I use similar ideas as other technical drawings.
