The boring rants of a lazy nerd

I have heard from a colleague that Orson Scott Card is scheduled to attend a con in our troubled country. Should that succeed, I shall find a way to attend.

Nope. Not same base. A special software department within Human Resources Planning located in HQ in Tel-Aviv. Few programmers located near the principal client, sometimes providing tech support in person rather than by phone. The people seem nice, the system is in C++ and sounds important, though very complex (and obviously imperfect, my military career is evidence to that). The base is crawling with brass and MPs - that will take some time getting used to.

Personnel Management Automation is widely rumored to suck. It seems I have five years to change that. The good news is that it�s on the same (relatively very nice) base.
Big day today. Very excited about assignment. *cross fingers* Pics from graduation might be available after the after-party.

I don't know if this was done by a real nutter or it's just a spoof, but LOL. The ficlet is of course v. funny as well.

Where I want to spend the next five years of my life

Step Seven is, for better or for worse, done. Now it�s only to wrap up Java and learn to parade. No, it�s not West Point, nothing as elaborate, but we have to show the parents something, and most won�t understand what it means that almost three years of software engineering was packed into six months.

Thank Elizabeth for the link: Publishing - The IT way. It has been pointed out in recent discussions over the anti-P2P laws that they would make libraries illegal, but looking at it from this side it's even funnier. As an IT professional I'd like to remind everyone that it is not the techs who are evil, but the management we obey. </Nuremberg>
