Conversely, this is a waste of time. Not offensively bad, just consistently lukewarm.

I do wonder why they bothered. If you want to see comedy about a job centre, just go to an actual job centre.

That's my political humour. People like it when you're topical.

That was more similar to the horror genre in my experience. If you've got a disability and sign something saying "I'll only apply for jobs I can do" then they make you apply for a load of jobs you can't do to make the numbers up and every advisor tells you something different to the point some think you're doing fine and others think you're a sanction doubt. The constant threat of sanctions made it so nerve-wracking, every time I went in the place I felt like I wanted to crap myself and vomit simultaneously.

It's almost as if they don't want you being content on the dole.

I don't think the causing of "discontent" is going to make jobs appear for everyone who's been taken off ESA on questionable grounds.

I got into search engine evaluation. Bing and Google have a human workforce who test their experimental algorithms, and they go through Lionbridge and Leapforce and Appen Butler Hill who deal with the Human Resources aspect.

The google manual leaked a few years ago. There's a post about it here

www.potpiegirl.com/2011/11/google-raters-who-are-they/

but it doesn't want to load right now and neither does archive.org which is odd.

If you're considered disabled then you can get tax credits doing 16 hours per week. You're technically a "self-employed freelancer" so you should get full housing benefit. The money seems to work out as the same as JSA.

www.hmrc.gov.uk/leaflets/tc956.pdf

You have to pass exams to get this job and they're difficult but they have easier evaluation tasks on Clickworker where it's things like rating how pornographic pages are on a scale and that's trance-inducing mindlessness. It's like Tetris with more skat.

Clickworker ends up paying less than minimum wage but as long as you clock up 16 hours (or near enough so you can blag it), Tax Credits seems to pay about as much as JSA.

There's also copywriting and writing for content farms but I haven't really looked into those.

Oh, archive.org is back now

Every time Simon and Garfunkel come on I can't help but think about this nautical nonsense:

Those seppo bastards still owe Martin Carthy a fortune in royalties.

Of course, but they pinched his arrangement practically note-for-note. For traditional songs that are out of copyright, the law grants the writer's share of the royalties to the arranger of the piece. Paul Simon met Carthy in London in 1962, and Carthy wrote down the song for him. Simon and Garfunkel didn't even correctly attribute the song as being traditional, crediting the song as "Simon and Garfunkel" rather than "Trad. Arr. Simon and Garfunkel", which annoyed Carthy more than the millions in royalties that are rightly his.

Carthy has always had a royalty-sharing deal with Topic Records, meaning that most of the money he makes from record sales gets reinvested in making recordings of artistically worthy but commercially unviable traditional music; Carthy's career success has subsidised English folk music for decades. If the Scarborough Fair royalties had been rightly attributed, they would have become an enormous endowment to support traditional music.

Not that we're still bitter or anything. Bastards.

That version of events was apparently established to be false over a decade ago.

There's a new season of this. I'm not sure why, it seemed like a stand-alone series. Still, it's quite nice to watch.
