Try to beat this
My boss, the director of IT, asked me last week if all our buffers were ok. After the initial shock I inquired as to what he meant by buffers. Seems someone told him about CERT and he had signed up for email notification at that site. After reading about various flaws involving Buffer Overflow he figured that I needed to make sure all our buffers were empty. Really - I was instructed to empty all buffers. You have no Idea how close I came to shutting of all backup and utility power to the server room.

And this is the director of IT?! How in the hell do they get their jobs?!
If that was where I work... I would be CEO/President by now...
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

Don't know how these people get their jobs. My boss was Material manager prior to this. We had a Sales person leading a major sofware project. But not to worry, I applied for the Controler position. I figure if sales runs software development, manafacturing people can run IT, then I could run Finance... I'll let you know if I get the job! Anyone here know anything about acounting?

That's just funny. I would apply for VP of IC (Idiot Control). As far as accounting goes if you make more then you spend it's a good thing. Enough said.
My preception IS reality.
Just because the majority think it\'s right doesn\'t make it right.
If you don\'t like it, Don\'t Settle For It.
