schestowitzHello, For the record, I would seriously hope the PEB GB will not disqualify candidates as that would be disproportionate, and that will be my recommendation. The PEB wording did indeed say use the time as you wish, although it did also say how long (optional) screen breaks were as well as the time allocated for download/upload. My view is the wording was not clear. The decision on how to deal with the extra time is out of my hands andJan 09 02:04
schestowitzall I can do is put a recommendation from the Examining team before the PEB GB.Jan 09 02:04
schestowitzFinals candidates are usually a pass or fail regardless of the time taken because they either do or don't demonstrate that they know what they are doing. However, the upshot of this is that, next year, I suspect timings will be far stricter.Jan 09 02:04

schestowitzRianne reckons he's himself a victim of sexual abuse as a kid. But that's just a theory.Jan 09 03:17
Techrights-secWell he is definitely trolling the channel with some goal in mind.Jan 09 03:27
Techrights-secYou must be getting close to some important material in the blog posts,Jan 09 03:27
Techrights-secif he is increasing his attacks.Jan 09 03:27
Techrights-secThe attacks take the channel off topic.Jan 09 03:27
schestowitzit's very much possible he does not like the digging into red hat, where he worked. I just ignore him to avoid time-wasting. he digs his own grave sometimes, then retracts when he realises he comes across as a pervert.Jan 09 03:28
Techrights-secHis trolling somehow seems connected to some corporate politics, butJan 09 03:32
Techrights-secI could not guess which one(s).Jan 09 03:32
schestowitzI have just checked his twitter account (in Firefox, needs JS). Seems misguided and the mind isn't working properly anymore.Jan 09 03:33

schestowitzI was going to say trauma and you beat me to it. Like I say, I try to avoid the time-wasting, no censorship necessary.Jan 09 03:34

schestowitzWhile it's tempting to write articles (or do videos) about it the outcome would become political and be subjected to tribal assessments that overlooks facts. Pocock covered this in past this week.Jan 09 03:49
