No nightmare. From my standpoint it would make my life as an admin easier.

Employee: "Hey. I lost this email from so and so a while back"
Me: "Oooooo... Ya. Sorry about that. We don't back your email up. We only backup company data."

Employee: "Hey. I keep getting spam."
Me: "Sounds like a personal problem to me. It's your email. Fix it."

Some of you may recall the story about school administrators using laptop cameras to spy on its students ( link to article ). In that case, no charges were could be brought against the school administrators. How is it that students doing the same to their administrators are treated as criminals, then? This world is so confusing.

General rule of thumb: Never send anything in E-Mail that you don't want to appear on the front page of a newspaper the next day.

E-Mail is stored unencrypted on several servers along its path, and due to some weird legislation is required to be stored that way for several years ( in case authorities "need to know" what you said ). Also, any one of those server's administrators could be bored and have bad ethical standards.

If you are sending unencrypted personal E-Mail from work, there is no doubt that your employers can and probably do read some of your mail.

The problem for me was that teachers knew absolutely nothing about technology and were expected to teach it. True pupils were not interested in using a word processor or Power Point... we were already writing programs and creating new technology. High school and university were only review. The slow pace of most computer "classes" merely hinders and creates frustration.

Google To Add Pay To Cover a Tax For Gays 1036

Posted by samzenpus
from the same-sex-compensation dept.
GrApHiX42 writes "Starting on Thursday, Google is going to increase the salaries of gay and lesbian employees whose partners receive domestic partner health benefits, largely to compensate them for an extra tax they must pay that heterosexual married couples do not. Google is not the first company to make up for the extra tax. At least a few large employers already do. But benefits experts say Google's move could inspire its Silicon Valley competitors to follow suit, because they compete for the same talent."
