[quote user="Ronald"]I think the financial analysts always need a black sheep[/quote] My theory is that the computer and the internet became such a crucial part in our lives while half the world hated the technology and thought Computer/The Internet enthuists were overreacting about what computers/The Internet will be able to do, and how ...
That happens on our Service Desk aswell. If they submit a ticket via a webapp, the contents of the ticket default to a small template to help the user provide as much details in as few words as possible. Many leave it blank.

It's a marketing thing. The download page trys to bundle in some random trial software that is set to also download and install by default, and you have to uncheck the box to stop it.

issues, I kept running into stupid, stupid Lotus Notes WTF's. Only
recently have I started writing them down as a method of venting.
I work at a large company with many different satellite links that make
some of these WTF's more obvious then normal. Many links ...
[quote user="morbiuswilters"]I'd say something about Europeans having
a shocking love affair with the police state (albeit not that shocking

naive sheep being led to slaughter, but America's not that far behind
and, as usual, is working a lot harder at ...
Hwah? I don't think privacy is that loosely-defined at all, nor do I think that has any bearing on it being a right.[/quote]
We disagree. My argument is that I don't think what constitutes a violation of one's privacy can be broadly defined. The difference between doing something normal and ...

I used to work in an electronic
