Re: For the Women of Wilmott - The Ladies Room 2

I think there is a way of being creative and free-spirited without crossing a certain line... We don't always get it right in the OT, but perhaps we should try a little harder.  Now a workweek, so speaking for myself, anyway, it is time to take off the kilt, put on the suit, and get serious for awhi...

Re: For the Women of Wilmott - The Ladies Room 2

LOL! An auspicious beginning. I don't recall if you have ever seen or posted to the Black Swan White Page Screenplay thread.  That was a lot of fun a few years ago. I am getting deep into Monday morning prep work and a football game soon, but will call that thread up if I have time. Remember mysteri...

Re: For the Women of Wilmott - The Ladies Room 2

"With ~1, <<1, >1, and >>1 in mind, I welcome all former wives, significant others, muses, and just plain friends of quants to this thread." Sounds like the beginning of a Tarantino-style movie... If the Forum expansion were made into a film, I would envision a blend of three of my favori...

Re: For the Women of Wilmott - The Ladies Room 2

I think, tw, you could do a great financial sociological study, with further segmentation, including, but not limited to: - quant devs - quant strats - heads of quant research - quant managing directors - founders of quant hedge funds - quant head hunters - even further broken down into front, middl...

Re: For the Women of Wilmott - The Ladies Room 2

The wives and significant others of Wilmott Forum are welcome on this thread.  Just think - if all of them saw this invitation and became members, it would nearly double the size of the community.  (And maybe the conversation would take on some new directions, leaving the Tramp Presidency behind.) A...

Re: For the Women of Wilmott - The Ladies Room 2

Indeed!

Beautiful mist here - maybe rain maybe not...but the town is also great if the long hike becomes impractical.

Enjoy your weekend!

Re: For the Women of Wilmott - The Ladies Room 2

I understand what you are talking about and have observed such situations as well.  So it adds another feature to the landscape. I am particularly careful with non-profits and volunteering.  It is one thing to donate time and energy to good and interesting causes; it's another thing to be drained by...

For the Women of Wilmott - The Ladies Room 2

I tried this before, some years ago, and naturally it went Off, which is fine.  Then it went Off Off and stayed there. Which is also fine, I guess... Haha. It takes a lot of work to keep some things on track! However, it is worth another try.  The focus is on women in finance and technology, whether...

Re: Universe Tea - Blog 2018

Haha.  No, not at all.  I mean in terms off wasting time needlessly, when there is so much serious work to do. If I go to the mountains, I will hike for a bit and then can really focus and get lots of work done. If I hang around here, I will not get any fresh air and exercise and similarly, I will n...
