I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

The bomb, I figure. Whas not to destroy the Vajra, but to eradicate the evidence.

Also seeing how the short-haired "agent" who gave the Frontier captain the specs and the blue stone also had Grace voice and we haven't seen her change shape I don't think we've seen the last of this character.

Say, what if there simply isn't -one- Grace?


Puppet cyborg bodies. Ever since we saw her hacking we've compared her to Motoko Kusanagi of Ghost in the Shell.

Whoa we're we right on the money when she used that body double in ep 10 and her jumping in 13.

On ep 10 she wasn't even around Sheryl suspiciously.

Likely she sent her personality to a new body via fold comm.

Ep 14

Alto manages to escape Galia 4's destruction. Uses LAI fold booster to get back to Frontier.

Elmo is missing the star of the concert.

Nanase worried about Ranka, Luca is her only support here. He almost confesses when the Vajra arrive.

Mikhails VF-25 manages to snag a ride from a capital ship but he hit his head and unconscious.

Sheryl wakes up and flies the Valkyrie away from the Vajra but she is being chased.

NUNS and SMS scramble, shelldown for all of Frontiers islands with a full barrier.

VF-171 elite Diamond Squadron show that the NUNS are wusses as Ozma and Bobby would say.(Like M7 Diamond Force?)

Sheryl gets shot down and ejects. Luca tries to assist but is outmatched.

Alto suddenly Alto arrives to save three of them.

Alto asks about Ranka. Sheryl doesn't know where she is.

In fold space Ranka awakes and the Queen Vajra shown her the battle.

Alto and Luca bring Sheryl and Mikhail back at the transformed Quarter.

Then the Vajra mothership defolds at Frontier's flank.

Frontier is pined in a pincer.

Leon convinces Pres. Glass to take out the Reaction Weapons.

When Quarter is about to engage the mothership Alto says Ranka is in it.

Wilder orders Alto to fly there with an armored pack with reaction missles.

SMS covers Alto. Ozma warns Alto if doesn't save Ranka he'll kill him.

An image of Ranka's sings Aimo to her to calm her down.

Reaction missles take out Vajra capitals.

Ranka sings Aimo for a moment stops the Vajra from attacking.

Red haired pixie gets killed. Luca gets hit. (Almost a death flag tsk!)

Which enrages Alto as he goes in GAR mode blowing a hole in the mother ship.

Which Brera beats him to the punch to Ranka.

Alto kills the Queen with Ranka's cries not to is not heard.

When they got out Brera identifies himself as Major Brera Stern of Macross Galaxy NUNS.

Macross Quarter destroys the mothership.

While the rest of the NUNS VF-171s destroys the Vajra and capital ships with reaction weapons.

Grace awakes in her new body.

comments:

Am I the only one thinking that Ranka's singing to the Zentradi and Vajra and them being blown up regardless is analogous Basara's frustration of anybody not listening in M7?

Dammit the tomboy got kiiled. Well there's a opening for Pixie Squadron if Sheryl wants to join. The Galactic Fairy of the Pixie Squadron.


Next Ep:

With the next Sheryl "Concert" does seem reminicent of Sharon Apple.

Grace being an AI compounds it. Having Sheryl confined in the hospital too while at it.

It wouldn't surprise me if the people of Galaxy is hypnotize and under control by Grace.

Sheryl will be the wrench in Grace's plan much like Myung was to Sharon Apple.

An interesting thing on Ranka's mom voiced by Maaya Sakamoto is named Ranshe Mei.

Ran(ka)She(ryl)

Given that Ranshe looks like a green haired Sheryl could they be sisters?

Both are orphans, both have crystals (Ranka inside her, Sheryl her earings), both have a enigmatic mother.

Oh yeah the hot blooded pilot of the PPB Punch NUNS Diamond Squadron VF-171 is named Machida. (Says so on his VF's head)

Who I believe we saw kissing his girlfriend when Nanase and Luca were talking.

THANK YOU! I'm now caught up!!! icon-fire.gif icon-fire.gif

Those were good quality subs. Not as good as Shinsen, but perfectly good enough to keep me up to date with the story. I'm still going to get the Shinsen subs because they also translate the songs which at first I didn't really care about, but now that I've had a taste, is something I can't do without. The music in the series has been fantastic so far, and Aimo is my personal favorite. It reminds me a lot of Voices from Macross Plus which is also a favorite of mine.

The only thing I hate about Macross Frontier is how much I want to see the next episode after viewing the last. These last few episodes inparticular have had a very fast and exciting pace.

Episode 15: Lost Peace (Galaxy Annonymous or GraceChan)

Recap ep like the Global Report but by Grace and her Galaxy Anonymous collective.
Grace isn't just one individual personality but 5. Grace laughs as her original home Global was destroyed.

Apparently Galaxy Anonymous intentionally led the Vajra to Frontier. Operation Carnival which uses Sheryl Nome codenamed Fairy 9 for their goals. Grace and Galaxy Anonynous determines Sheryl aka Fairy 9 as a failure, to be disposed of, and plan on using the recently discovered codename Q1 or Ranka. Only 78% of their plans goals were met. 28% uncertainty due to underestimating SMS and the YF-24 derived VF-25 and Ranka.
And Mr. Richard Bilrer the owner of SMS is apparently on to their little scheme throwing wreches in their plans.

The other half is the Sheryl/Ranka song battle duet for Alto with "What about my star" song. Gloves are all off if Ranka's belly glows Sheryl's earing twinkles when she is about to make a super move.

Lol at Alto is like a cornered prey. Two girls pseudo confessing to him making him stressed out on the CHOICE.

Unfortunately Sheryl is still sick her duet with Ranka ended. Then these government guys come to escort Ranka for Leon. Alto gets a call to meet his boss Mr. Bilrer.

Ozma and Cathy begin to suspect Leon is unto something dirty.

Leon recruits Ranka for special project against the Vajra with Grace as project head and Brera as bodyguard.

It seems they are going to make Sound Force or Jamming Bird unit operation with Ranka.

Alto reaches Mr. Bilrer's mansion and is greeted by a Akiba worthy maid. Alto then meets the giant Zentradi old man Mr. Bilrer who is a train otaku. Oh yes Alto is promoted but next ep is likely about their talk.

Grace through Brera could not penetrate Bilrer's electronic anti-spying security.

Galaxy Anonymous wonders why Bilrer wants to talk to Alto. But they acknowledge that Alto is now in the thick of it due to his relationship with both their tools Sheryl and Ranka.

Using Ranka Galaxy Anonymous plans on surpassing the Protoculture. Achieving something that even the Protoculture could not do in their 500,000 year history.

At the end Macross Galaxy is showed unscratched within a asteroid field surrounded by it's escorts.

comments:

The gold of this ep is the song battle duet for Alto's heart. Poor Alto now he knows what the Zentradi and Protodevlin went through.

Ep 16 Ranka Attack!

Alto attacks some yellow Vajra.

Flashback to his talk with Mr. Bilrer. Bilrer asks Alto if he has a dream. Bilrer's dream is to connect the galaxy by making fold travel easier. Illustrated by trains flying in space. (Galaxy Express 999 otaku?)
A legacy for all the Protoculture's children. Humans, Zentradi, Zolan and others and perhaps Vajra. All possible with Fold Quartz. The same crystal on Bilrer's ring, Sheryl's earring and within Ranka.

Skull Squadron brings home Vajra corpses on a stick.

At Mihoshi Alto is irritated that Brera is in class. Gets a beat down by Brera. Much to Ranka's distress.

Grace the b*tch stole Ranka from Elmo. Elmo left out in the cold and depressed at Folmo Mall drinking.

Sheryl is surprise her manager is with Ranka.

Grace manipulates Ranka to sing a remix of Aimo.

Brera discusses why Ranka into it. Ranka asks how Brera knows Aimo.

When Brrera left the baby Vajra in Ranka's VF back pack showed up. Ranka named it Ai-chan.

Alto on his way to SMS finds a sick Sheryl in the park where he, Ranka and Sheryl were when the Vajra attacked the second time.

Alto brings her to the Quarter in his quarters. (Redundant isn't?)

Alto gets beat up the second time of the day by Sheryl when she woke up. A girl in a guys room? Alone? Suspicious icon-depth.gif

Alto finally notices that Sheryl has the same fold quartz as his boss. Getting a bit too close when Mikhail comes.

Mikhail tries to leave when them to their moment. Which Alto denies till Cathy goes on the monitor. Alto hides Sheryl in his bunk she so would not be seen and he in trouble.
Cathy briefs them in a operation, Ranka Attack, which shocks them. Meanwhile Ozma oniisan chews out Leon on the operation.

When the operation starts Mikhails wonders if this Minmay Attack would work.
Klan compares the Vajra to Protodevlin. Protoculture biological weapons that went wrong and pacified by Basara 14 years before.

Ranka rides Rabbit-1, the Koenig Monster that Canaria pilots. Ozma converses with Ranka and returns to his VF.

SMS Skull Squadron armed with reaction weapons is accompanied by Brera and the rest of the VF-27 Antares squadron.

Sheryl sneaks out to the bridge, bribing the security with a kiss, despite being said by Alto stay in his room.

Sheryl asks Capt. Wilder if she can observe the operation. Wilder allows her despite Cathy's protest.

SMS attacks the asteriod Vajra nest with reaction weapons forcing them out in the open while Ranka starts singing confusing their ranks.

Everyone is amazed with Ranka's ability. The president is delighted at the Vajra being destroyed. Klan say Deculture!

Grace monitors Ranka's vitals especially her emotions but it seems heart isn't into this slaughter.

One of the red Vajra starts to target Rabbit one , Alto and Brera butt heads to save Ranka.

Brera says he'll protect Ranka and Alto isn't needed.

The battle is over the bridge bunnies compare Ranka to Minmay but Bobby objects compares Ranka to Basara.

comments: Macross 7 references galore. Emotion monitors, Protodevlin, Basara.

Though if Basara was in Frontier he would object in using song as a tool of death.
