For those who have had an interest in my Partner’s status, there’s very bad news. Fran (MestaMachine, Teku Etana) passed away quietly in the night, not so long after I last spoke to her nurse.
My family, Vigdis Aaland, Maurith Julie Fagerland, and Snorre Fagerland, got their desires. So did some of her relatives who had been salivating over her last meager possessions.
This is the way Heroes go. Not with a bang, but with torture.
As many of you know, I have been rather unrelenting in my criticism of criminality and corruption in the Norwegian State, in many cases exemplified by my Jewhating and murderous family. But the problems in the parasite state are unchanging. It was with some amusement I read this article:
and saw that nothing much has changed since I spent ten years working for Norsk Data and the exact same branch as Ms. Aulie. Basically, the system was uncontrollable. Corruption, cronyism and nepotism was the order of the day and public money allocations in the hundreds of millions went off into thin air (well, not exactly – we know who scurried off with the loot). I’ll give you a brief example.
There came a time when the Norwegian Social Security systems were to have an upgrade, and it did not go well. I mentioned that in a recent post. At that point there was also a personnel evaluation underway, and one of the top execs had the bright idea that it would be a golden opportunity to get rid of people he didn’t like, hire family as contractors and dole out money to same family. So he authored a vicious document to the top leadership of Norsk Data and laid out why he wanted rid of a large group of employees – one was “servile but sullen” and “strange”, for example. At the same time he authorized large payouts to his own daughter for makework which had nothing to do with the project.
As tragicomedy would have it, there was only one printer in the place, in its own room – and everyone used it. He printed his work but didn’t pick it up at once. Oh, and the copier was in the same room. Of course, pandemonium was right around the corner. It didn’t make things much better that he sent a “pep-talk” around to everyone, including the executive levels, which he concluded with “Up Yours!” I think he had some vague idea that it had something to do with encouragement :).
At least the company let him go the day after. The criminal State doesn’t even sneeze at this kind of filth.
Funny peculiar, even if not funny haha.
