    I enjoyed that except that it brought back too many painful memories.

    Too funny. Luckily I am a Network Engineer, so I never have to deal with things like that happening to me

    Some days I am so glad I got out of the IT industry.

    Of course, now I just do IT support for my shop for free....

    Cute. As a PC tech, I can relate to that:

    Don't forget for family too.

    My Borhter In-Law calls me form time to time, so I trade him computer help for his Doctoring skills when one of the kiddos are sick.

    It reminds me of all those Dilbert cartoons in the Sunday paper.

    as a recently-made ex-IT person (almost 3 months in police academy) I can understand and horribly relate to most of those signs and the feelings those situations produce

    oh....and I still do support for family friends

    I never, ever touch a computer unless it is work related and the time is billable. family and friends ask me to look at their computer, I just say, what version of Linux is it running? Sorry, I am not familiar with windows.

    The last picture of the kid who had 6 intensive weeks of VB looks like alot of the consultants I saw in my earlier time.

    Now I work for a large consulting company. I couldn't hug a programmer if my life depended on it. Most of my team is in India and the few remaining in the US are located in a different state than me.



    I don't do binary, but I've spent a fair amount of time on assembly language and many years in C++. Now I've slowed down to Java, SQL and Unix shell programming.

    Technical Project Managers? I didn't know there was such a thing. Where do we find one?

    That one about the consultants with the fouled up code sounds rather familiar.

    Believe it or not, that video could easily describe the construction industry.

    While I am still doing development work it is not as bad as it use to be, I do not miss some previous employers. Also on the software/hardware joke it depends if you are strictly software or do both hardware and software which I do not mind.

    And one of my favorite sayings...

    I would not doubt it. The whole practice of providing technical solutions via software is based on constructing small things (components). Then constructing bigger things using those smaller things. Then constructing even bigger things using those bigger things. etc . ... All the while trying to meet deadlines and co-ordinate the schedule of your components with others components. You guys probably deal with the angles and physics and gravity (ensuring correct construction of of buildings). We deal with part discrete mathematics, part logic, part voodoo and to do what we need to do.
