Random fashion thoughts - Part II (A New Hope) - Page 611

post #9151 of 13963
I am amazed at how hostile people get around here. Why do there have to be such personal attacks? Couldn't people disagree vehemently, but politely, about fashion? That way we might get more information about why people do or don't like certain items.

What a time to be alive.

Could we have a thread where we can post ridiculous things users say or is the SLP p much it?

To free up memory, I suggest we delete some threads. Maybe even some users.

I feel you.  I've been getting it too.  I've contacted the tech team, and elevated it to code red.  PITA.  I honestly don't even know the core issue.  

 

They've been trying to track down the root issue, but have obviously not particularly successful.  They actually asked me, if I could to follow the instructions here to help them: https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewSolution?id=000187144&language=en_US

 

I know that it's a lot to ask of you guys, but if you could help me, this would really go a long way to stabilizing things:

 

Chrome:
 - Chrome Menu (Top Right corner) -> Tools -> Developer Tools.
 - To remove the Log docking in the browser, click on the Square Bottom most Left side.
 - In the Tab select "Network"
 - Start opening pages. The log should clear every page open. If you need to preserve the logs, there's a "preserve log" checkbox below the tabs. 
 - If you see the time lag, you go to the Dev tool -> right click -> select "Save As HAR with content". (make sure .har is added at the end)

They won't pay the same salary. But you can fly and work here and fly back.

The questions are:

1) Are your skills transplantable?

2) Can you command the same salary in a different area?

 

Both of these are not trivial questions.  A lawyer, for example, in a small law firm in Idaho, starts at about $35-40K/a, straight out of law school.  My friends who decided to work for the larger law white shoe law first in Boston, straight out of law school, got $120-130K/a as a junior associate.  Salaries and wages are often commiserate with the standard of living in any area.

 

The only tried and true ways of mitigating this are to own a business that operates non-geographically, or to be working, mostly remotely, for a company that resides in a place with a much higher standard of living.  I do know increasing numbers of San Francisco and Silicon Valley people, primarily developers, who live in places like Idaho, and fly in once every month/two weeks, for a few days, and continue to draw their San Francisco and Silicon Valley salaries.  They don't live like kings, because unless you are really up there, money, when you have kids, goes fast.  Having a family and a comfortable living situation is what seems to bring a lot of these knowledge workers out here in the first place.  And even then, they can't work for the big companies, which will generally not tolerate that level of telecommuting.

 

This goes for other industries as well.

 

There is a woman here who used to make a very good living as a hair stylist, in South Florida.  She purportedly did a lot of rich people's hair.  Anyway, her husband moved here for school, and she thought - "Oh, well, my business is highly portable (I mean, people have hair everywhere, right?) and I'm good".  Surprise, surprise.  The customer base was simply not here.  She does some weddings, etc..., but now teaches Spanish at a daycare.

I'm looking for a replacement for one of my favorite pieces that I recently put a small hole in. It's a Muji cardigan/jacket. The styling is just like a shawl chore coat, something like this one from L. C. King. Button cuffs, patch pockets, and buttons all the way up. But the fabric is a slubby cotton jersey, like a heavy t-shirt. All I can find are shawl cardigans that only button to the chest or workwear jackets in denim and canvas. Thanks in advance!

I hear you. Certainly there is some give and take with moving to a less expensive part of the country. In my industry, however, I would likely be earning the same (maybe a very small pay cut). In fact, we had an employee move from CA to Kentucky and her salary was not altered.

I come across company census data regularly, and most of my clients are tech companies who hire all over the country and have employees work remotely. The salary differences are minute compared to the cost of living differences. Being a senior software engineer in Milwaukee will have you living like a king these days if you are hired by a Bay Area tech firm.
