you used to carry your stack of punch cards to a Demi-priest, who passed them to the Priest who was the only one that was allowed to touch the computer. Funny, how even today that role still exists.. it's called a DBA.. these jerks won't let mortal developers near a database, even though the dev writes the script to be run against production, and DBA monkey just hits Run for you.

Read the book The Disney Way.. it doesn't matter if you are the CEO or there to paint the fence. If you see garbage, you pick it up. It's about everyone pitching in to make a company awesome. (said in a Disney Princess voice)... but seriously... Of course everything is a balance, I think the operative word is "occasional" ops.. it doesn't take much time out of dev schedule to manage a web server or VM so your product just keeps working, especially when it is a new product and the production ops are still being figured out.

You can upgrade by installing Windows Me, then Vista Ultimate, then enable start menu, disable start menu, 8.0 SP1, Windows ME again but holding ALT-F5 until BSOD appears, then quickly insert the 3.5 floppy with 8.1 patch on it (if you didn't keep a floppy drive.. oh you're so screwed!).

Herd immunity starts to fail and those idiots that don't immunize start to affect those that can't be immunized such as pregnant women and babies. imo, you refuse to immunize you should be placed on No fly list, refused entry into school, government buildings etc. Treated like a leper, yes.. but you had the choice of a freely available cure.

Or a passport number? these guys were here on visas they should have all kinds of unique numbers and probably photos assigned to them. Why the fuck are they using manually entered names as the only check? Waves hand slowly in the air and invokes the Force: This is not the John Smith you are looking for. TSA Agents repeat, this is not the John Smith we are looking for.
