Sure you would have, just been excluded from some jobs. 25 year retiree and red-green color blind.

At my induction physical I failed 14 of 15 color cards. Tech told me I was color blind and I replied all you had to do was ask me I could have told you that.

BTW: Purple does not exist and is a conspiracy by the color-normal people against the disabled.

Had the same sort of experience working at a Headquarters for the military.

There was this Lt. Colonel that would occasionally stand be the entrance recording and reporting on all the guys that arrived even one minute after 0800. Somehow never saw him at 1900 when those of us that were a bit late in the morning finally got to leave for the day, mostly because he was out the door at 1630 share.

Definitely don't miss those types of idiots. Now is show up sometime between 0800 and 0900 and leave when the work is done.

All of you TP types that want the IRS to retain e-mails forever refuse to give the government a dime to build the system to retain that e-mails forever. It ain't cheap to build a backup system to maintain all the e-mails generated by a decent sized business or government agency. That's why retention dates are established and followed. Also why so many users have PST files on their local computer that violate the retention policy and gets the company in trouble with the lawyers and get deleted when a computer is rebuilt or the drive crashes.

I thing the whole thing reeks of conspiracy BUT having worked for multiple government agencies many of them severely limit the size of a users Exchange mailbox and because network storage is scarce they routinely counsel users to keep archived e-mail in a PST stored on the local drive. They tell the user that Outlook runs better this way (mostly true). Problem is this violates government policy on maintaining permanent records (not that the user cares) and means if the local drive crashes or is wiped for a new user all the old e-mail is lost.

Many corporations do the same BTW.

For my money the excuse is just a bit too convenient but plausible.

On thing that working in film does for a student, not for a pro or hobbyist but for a student, is make them pay more attention to the process of taking the picture. With the cost and time of processing film the student has more incentive to pay attention to framing the picture and getting it right in camera. Digital has very little penalty for taking several shots just to "get it right".

For the pro and hobbyist I completely agree with your comments.

We can predict everything, except the future.
