    *****************
    More than 90 percent of Xbox buyers in the United Kingdom were planning to take the day off work Thursday, according to a survey conducted by Amazon.com.
    Microsoft's Xbox gaming console went on sale at midnight last night in stores across the United Kingdom, and those who preordered online were supposed to have their consoles delivered by the morning. Almost all of those who will have one are planning to take the day off.

    In the survey of 3,000 gamers, 74 percent said they were intending to stay home from work and feign illness, an Amazon representative said. A further 20 percent said they also planned to take the day off, but had not decided whether they should own up to their bosses.

    Power to the people. It is good that so many people with a common intrest have joined together and stood up for themselves.

    Love the sig. ROFLMAO!!!! And that's a pretty funny article, why didn't I think of doing that?

    Wow, a bunch of people using a Microsoft product, are being rebelious. Who would have thought a company as mainstream as M$ could cause so much havoc?

    I think we should have a holiday here in the US where all the Systems Administrators and ASAs who have been driven totally insane by the incompetence of their users get to take the day off...
