Even before i was told i was pre-daibetic I was having pictures taken on an "optimap" (?) system and the eye doctor would look at the images before-during-after my eye exam. Insurance does not cover this at all, but i think my eyesight is worth the investment (same if i ever can get cataract surgery). No drops; no injections; just a nice sharp picture.
But the effect was similar.
Once upon a time in the long distant past I was admin on a Unisys 1100/74 (4 CPU system) that we had 3 production Mappers running and a test version. I set them to run real-time (and on Unisys that's what it really means) and the operators couldn't key into the console for 40-45 minutes at a time.....la de da.
Changed that back shortly after.
worked for my last company for over 40 years and when they let me go i had access to my computer and the relevant systems up until i left at the end of the day.
no sabotage, no bad behaviour; just one more schmuck shoved out the door at the end of the day.
Doing something like what this wanker did should have been an instant H1B revoke, green card option permanently revoked, and time in chokey, and then shipped out of country.
