Team Kimberlin’s inept struggles to control the narrative surrounding their activities have been triggers for vast amounts of pointage, laughery, and mockification, as this post titled #PLM Du Jour from two years ago today shows.

Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Bill Boy Unread has suggested is the only computer in his hometown, the Cabin Boy™ tweeted these—
So let’s get started with the pointage, laughery, and mockification.
If Gentle Reader reads my post which the Cabin Boy™ ripped off in violation of our 2014 Settlement Agreement, he will see that I did not say that the
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Bill Boy Unread Twitter account belonged to Bill Schmalfeldt. I said that he was editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Bill Boy Unread which, while unfortunate, is true. It’s not surprising that an publication which views him as qualified to be an editor would have difficulty keeping the facts straight. Given that the Cabin Boy™ recently bragged on his LinkedIn page about scoring a 72 on an English test for persons who are not native English speakers (a C- on an ESL test) and that my score on the verbal portion of the SAT was in the 99th percentile (but only a 690 instead of a perfect 800), I’m willing to bet that my reading comprehension is usually somewhat better than his.
Moving right along, …
The relationship between govvies and contractors in government agencies varies from job category to job category. The government pay scale for many soft-skill jobs is better than average for equivalent jobs in the productive economy. However, the government pay scale for certain professions is well below market rates. This is particularly true for several types of engineers. The government winds up filling many engineering positions with contractors who work for market-level (or better) wages and make substantially more than their govvie colleagues. The Cabin Boy™ brags about GS-13 Step 6 pay, $110,595 in the DC area for 2017, $100,118 in Iowa. I’ll simply say that GS-15 Step 10 pay would be a substantial pay cut for me.
Of course, the Cabin Boy™ rarely lets the facts get in the way of one of his foolish rants.
UPDATE—The Cabin Boy™ and whoever is hiding behind the
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Bill Boy Unread Twitter account have spent the past half hour or so beclowning themselves by sending more than two dozen tweets directed to @NASA and to me.Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Some retiree go back to work because they must, That’s not true in my case. I’ve retired twice and gone back to work twice when I didn’t have to. In both cases, former colleagues asked me to return to help with design problems. I stayed back at work the second time because I’m having fun.
