I just posted a discussion about The Dresden Files. I rambled on for multiple times the character allotment of this comment section, as should be expected of me.
Anyway, if anyone here has read the series, I was wondering a few things, since I couldn't make it through the second book. If you can make it through my over-long screed, could you let me know what you think?
It certainly seems that a lot of companies design their products the ways Dilbert's bosses do.
Joan, I had to look it up also.
When I found the Dutch article, I just kept looking until I found an English article. Made more sense.
Chris, I have never heard of paternoster lifts and looked i up. The original article came in Dutch, I requested English and that was interesting:
Those lifts were so slow and safe, if you touched the one place where you could get hurt, the thing stopped within a second. We had them in older public buildings, and it was fun to make children believe the cage would turn over at the top of the building.
Oh, I also like Google facts Ruth. First time I've seen it.
Interesting elevators Ruth.
The paternoster lifts sound interesting also Chris. I read that they are mostly outlawed because they were hazardous. That reminded me of the busses when I was in Britain 52 years ago. People often got on & off while they were moving. I wonder if they still allow that?
reminds me of the old paternoster lifts
Elevators that go sideways! I had a nightmare like that.
