As long as your role pays you for being accessible. The rates vary but should be between 10% to 20% of your hourly pay for the hours you're on call. For example, if you make $50/hour normally you should be getting at least $5/hour for being on call. Think of it like being a babysitter. Most times they just sit around and watch TV or do their homework or chat with their boyfriend. But it's the chance of there something going wrong that they're paid for. I hope you're getting paid for being around in case something goes wrong too.

If you're off by nearly the width of a human hair, it's not a perfect circle now, is it? Sheesh.

You can navigate in a perfect circle, but when you reach the end of the perfect circle there will be a little left over because the number you were using for pi to calculate the circumference was off.

However, don't let me interrupt what must be a satisfying eye roll for you. I'm glad to see cowards on Slashdot have remained as polite as ever.

Anyone know if it's possible to do this for Slashdot? Every single post read, every login, every IP address, perhaps supposedly anonymous posts, every moderation, etc. And with Slashdot, there isn't the ability to even delete anything. The only saving grace is that most people don't attach their real names to their accounts.
