Default oops my brain is out of it.

yeah I suck at forex as well though you still need a lot of leverage to get anything moving it's only because currency pairs move so many pips that you can gain on a low leverage deal.

You always have the option of quitting.

I hear that you are in a lot of distress. Been there, done that.

It's not easy, but stand up and take responsibility for yourself.

I often think back to that Star Trek film where Spock is weeding a desert, and then is called back into service.

Be more than anyone can possibly expect (also known as grow a pair).

it's via an employment support contract other than not showing up there's probably not much I can do.

A more proper translation than mine. See verse 41(which happens to be a prime number and thus a good omen)

https://coursewikis.fas.harvard.edu/...uba%27iyat.doc

900 years ago Khayyam has his own struggle with purpose of life, yet he calculated the precise lengths of the year to fractions of a second, before there were computers, electricity our even watches. Your struggle is not unique, there are ups and downs and things do change. I know because, I too have been there. It's like Canadian whether, if you don't like it, wait a minute.

"Today is the first day of the rest of my life."

"Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans."


and from my own experience:

Even a ordinary dull day might some day be a precious memory you look back on with longing, because that time and place in your life and the people you were with are no longer a part of your life. Remember to stop up once in a while and enjoy the present while you still in it.

You can excel! Take interest!

Here's a challenge I often gave my students:

Given a spreadsheet program (Excel, LibraOffice, et al) compute the 12 by 12 times table.

Those who are good only need to enter one number ("1") in A1, and every other cell is a formula.

The really good ones can complete this exercise in less than sixty seconds.

I do have interests ( science, math,chess,...) but they are unlikely to get me employment without degrees I no longer would go back to school for. bakery training in employability skills is not an interest I have and the best they've done so far is a person who used to be in the navy talking conversions that and seeing how much I can push without getting crippled.

Just to share, I once had a really bad office manger who didn't understand how a spreadsheet worked.

She used the spreadsheet as a desktop publishing program. My boss asked me to double check the spreadsheet, and the office manager admitted that she was using a hand calculator to fill in the fields.

I guess I've been out of school too long, because I can't imagine someone taking more than 60 seconds on that, even doing 'everything' wrong.

To be perfectly honest, this is not our problem.

Step up and earn a living.

Someone I knew had a grade 3 education, and he just happened to end up the GM of a very big corporation.

Hey SM,
I will tell you what I have been thinking about lately.
In have been trying to come up with a formula that yields a not too large integer which is highly divisible. As such it works be useful in in gcd factoring.
Check this out m = a-small-primorial and n = a power of 2
In the formula
for (i=1,m,p =n^i ), you get an integer which factors into lots of primes. It is similar to a factorial but not as exhaustive or as large. If I could come up with a range based formula to set the concentration range of the primes, I'd have something.
What do you think.
