All the problems solved.
Next problem please.
I met with Oracle a couple of times and always walked away shaking my head and thinking to myself, "These guys just aren't serious about supporting Sun." They talked a good talk, but it was like their heart wasn't in it.
Why do you think the government is willing to let us pay $4.00/gal for gas? We're not squandering our own resources and when everyone else has depleted all the worlds gas and oil resources, the U.S. can charge $1,000/gal to other countries if they want. Remember the 'golden rule': Who ever has the gold, makes the rules.
If the IT person wants access to the system, it's to make sure that nothing is going to cause any harm to the network or infrastructure. Man up and give him access.
If I didn't use the car for anything else, I could factor in the maintenance costs, but since I do use it for other things, the only expense I can legitimately use is fuel.
I can save some money on laundry, but that is pretty much peanuts. And besides I know technical people that don't know you are suppose to wash your clothes (and body) occasionally. So, we cannot deduct that.
Sitting around my home office in my underwear (or nothing at all) is not a deductible expense - a nice perk for some people, but not an expense.
So, bottom line, the savings are a little less than $2,000.00 a year. I could, therefore, only justify a 2% pay cut. Forget it.
actually, illegal sites got a better ranking then the official one
It is my opinion that then/than are probably two of the most misused words in the English language. Then, an adverb meaning at a time. Back then I used to not care. Than, a conjunction used as after comparative adjectives and adverbs, to introduce the second member of an unequal comparison or as a preposition to show relation to or comparison with (usually followed by a pronoun).
The correct statement would there be:
Oh, wait. This is a geek site, sorry, my bad.
