CEO told to die in a car crash after firing engineers who had two full-time jobs
When i worked as IT in a company I quickly automated it via Scripts. It rapidly became a challenge to me to do this for as much as possible.
I just thought of it as a requirement for IT staff as I could so easily do it
Then years down the line I realised I had quite a bit of free time on my hands. So I used that to find tools online that would help me automate more of it.
Only a couple of times did one of the Managers sort of cotton on to my amount of free time.
But as I was doing my job, he couldn't really fault me.
I ended up performing easy soldering jobs to pass the time.
Never thought of applying for a second job...

Beige Against the Machine: The IBM PC turns 40
I remember our department getting a PC for the first time.
They immediately played flight sim and a racing game on it. The games were pirated right away of course
Everyone was shown this machine playing the Flight Sim as if it was it's most important job.
I soon found out it did little else.
As a BBC Micro user I couldn't understand the fuss made of this weak, hard to use £1000+ computer!
