It appears I have made a mile stone in my blogging.
I’m getting spammed by people smart enough to not get blocked automatically by the WordPress system. I have no idea why this is, all of the sudden, the case. I’ve thrown out probably 6 bad comments so far. Fortunately I pre-approve them, so no one was exposed to their trash.
If you look online at the (United States) National Weather Service’s page http://www.weather.gov/okx/ you will see the New York City region’s webpage. Any one know why the abbreviation that would logically be NYC is OKX? I’ve checked and it is not ROT-13 or any similar transformation.
As many people in the United States know, Vermont is a State in the Union. Like all other States, it has local government. UNlike most other States, the State’s Secretary of State (no connection with the federal one, currently Tillerson) maintains a list of local government non-civil service positions, viewable here.
I don’t know if the current Secretary of State wrote the descriptions or not, but some of them are a hoot. For example:
When I was applying for a position at, if I remember correctly, PSEG, I had to fill out a diversity form or two or three. I don’t have a problem with that.
I did notice this UI confusion though:
Clearly that is a drop down menu. However I would note that check boxes would actually be improper here, since the options are mutually exclusive (check one). However, if they said “click on of the radio buttons” they would be probably confusing people who don’t know UI designers jargon.
