Riding is like IT.

Working in IT, if you want to be successful as a decision maker in larger organizations, you have to be able to assess the risk involved with any action. We don't do deploys into production during business hours. We don't reboot server during business hours.

We build infrastructures in datacenters to be robust, and preferably redundant. If the business doesn't want to pay for servers that sit around waiting for something to fail, then they have to accept the risk that a failure will cause an outage. Anyway...

Wearing gear, and the way we ride are very much the same. You assess the risk and wear the amount of gear, carry the kind of insurance, and ride certain speeds based on what's acceptable to you.

As long as the risk only affects the rider, then do as you please, just don't whine when **** goes wrong. When the risk involves others then that's not acceptable. Stunting in traffic, high speed runs on highways...no bueno. A squid let's hos actions affect the risk level of others. No gear is your right should you choose to ride that way.

Anyway, thanks for listening...carry on.

Marquez is a hell of a rider. Rossi is a hell of a racer.

Well said.

I don't think people always realize just how much damage a motorcycle can do to other vehicles and people in a high speed collision. If you're stunting or driving at ludicrous (it's a real word, ok?) speeds, you're putting other people in danger.

Thex, I think you've missed your true calling - writing TV commercials or company mission statements!

Agreed, however.

thex

i deploy during lunch time on a friday so that everybody can go home early

i reboot servers minutes before rush hour, hence pushing rush hour into 30 minutes instead, and thus am able to better justify new hardware budget.

i let my password lie around the office when i think its time we get a new infrastructure security manager

whoop whoop
