Thin client

So, I'm at a sales seminar.  I have low expectations of the accuracy and content of the information provided, and am not disappointed.  But one was particularly egregious.

 

So the guy presenting at the time notes that they sell "thin clients," and then defines a "thin client" as having no moving parts.

 

I suppose in the current state of technology, this is likely to be true, but it's not exactly the point.

 

(My dictionary-writing soul shrivels a bit ...)

Assuming he time-jumped with the plan to market a revolutionary technology, it seems he accidentally landed in the future.  Man LOL

Re: Thin client

A sly way of redirecting traffic to make a sale? Is that the definition of thin client?

Re: Thin client

A thin client is one for whom the sales critter did not buy lunch.  Or, perhaps it is the bend-gate susceptible  mobile phones they sell.

The challenge is to convince the salesman to become an (ISC)2 member & grab a certification; the one who gets him to take the most certifications wins.

 

(ATM, @rslade has the lead. Man Wink)

 

 

Talking about badges, I've seen a lot of other sites which let you earn points by inviting others --- Cybrary is one of these --- so I'm surprised that there's none here; at least, I'm not aware of it.

 

(Perhaps there is, but no one's earned it yet.)

Yes, but in order to get the badge you'd have to convince someone (someones?)
that membership in the "community" actually had some value ...

Now you know why I described it as a challenge.  Man Wink
