Re: Hire immediately
Yeah, i did that as well on our Uni vax. Thaught i was so clever at the time. (Obviously I wasnt).
Fotunately (for me), i didnt actually deploy it. I suspect that would have been last-straw territory.
I think i was on a list of troublemakers, as i was smart enough to cause problems, but not smart enough to be any good at it, and the Vax Sysasmin at BIHE really knew his stuff.
Other things i managed was writing scripts with busy-wait loops (inadvertently), doing strange things with directories, and logging on someone who was banned for doing nothing but playing MUDs all day as well as lots of things i dont want to admit.
Saying that, i did teach myself C and C++ and write a chess program in DCL on that box as well.
Frankly, looking back at it, as i wasnt even a computer science student (Electronic Engineering), i was suprised i wasnt just kicked off it.
