Ok, different subject then. Are you familiar with HBO's Silicon Valley show? If so, could you imagine yourself on it?

At least some conversations and events have been eerily similar.

 :lol:

Can you expand on that?

Good to see you back, Hami. :cheers:

If you're able to talk about it, what is it exactly that your startup do?

I don't want to be too specific. Pretty high tech stuff.

Give us some meaningless buzzwords at least, or the broad sector in which it'd be applied.  :P

Neural networks? Quantum computing? Thingamajigs?

Fucking Neural networks.  :mad:

The business school I work for has used some Silicon Valley clips in class. The business side of it is pretty realistic.

Does it involve thera-magnetic wave signatures interacting with parabolic radiation?

The Spanish Supreme Court has given the green light to moving Franco's remains from his self-built mausoleum to a private graveyard, denying Franco family's appeal.

About time.

Excellent.

Is there a decent amount of time they need to wait before taking jack-hammers to it and bulldozing the rubble?

And off he goes!



I wish they had gone full Dolce Vita and have the coffin being carried outside the helicopter.

It is nice to have confirmation that Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

Probably more of the "bouncing inverse tachyon beams off the main deflector dish to overcome enemy cloaking device" kinds of stuff.  Boring and old hat, but still profitable.

Ah. Well that makes sense. Sometimes it is best to rely on the basics.
