It is the proverbial Dog's Bollocks. Entirely natural.
Really appreciate you keeping us all informed about everything you’re doing on this trip.
The air ticket upgrade, the taxi from the airport, the hotel breakfast, the boss flying all the way over for a meeting but “DGAF” that you told him you’d be missing it to watch the match instead , and all these cool gadgets - the “$20K per seat licence app” showing how cutting edge you are and the “aggressively secured network” showing your importance.
Hooray for social media - enabling even socially awkward needy people to build their esteem big noting themselves to complete strangers over the internet.
Cone off it Vamps. We're not talking about MS 365. Given the area BW works in it's hardly surprising software licenses & subscriptions are expensive. I've no idea how cutting edge his lab or the software they use is because I've never seen or worked with anything like a 3D slicer and I don't know what a ELMER does, but am certain that if you're not cutting edge in cancer research you're kinda wasting everyone's time?
** just to be clear as well given the kindergarten level this discussion is at, it stopped being funny years ago. I have no idea what tools BW uses, I just know how fucking expensive this type of software is.
I was merely engaging in a bit of banter about the way needy folk in the Facebook age feel compelled to incessantly post about everything they’re doing (often in a way designed to big note themselves).
