I keep yelling that the auditions will be held at the studio, not HERE, so did off

I recall reading somewhere that Solitaire came with the package to acquaint the newbie with click and double click even click-and-drag.
I recall the manual even offered ergonomic tips to prevent RSI. It had illustrations, so this comicbook fan had no problem reading the guide from cover to cover
And I was just about to watch this clip on YouTube about a seagull that ate pigeons. After this, and your post, I am not quite sure why I passed it by, in favor of ball pythons feeding on rats. I must have been thinking about management, but that's another story, for another Friday
I had just started out coding, when I was lucky enough to have been assigned to join up with the application development staff of an affiliate bank. Their managers were incredible as "buffer zones" and ensured that none of the flak, politics, and non-technical issues ever reached the coders. We always got the job done.
For close friends I charge for a whole pizza (enough for everyone), and beer. Except the beer has to be the *imported* stuff, you know Belgian, Japanese, or anything you really have to go to a specialty liquor store for. I give them directions when they get curious about this 'acquired' taste. Either they forget about the task at hand or switch priorities; you can tell at some point.
For the Mac and Linux folk asking for assistance, I believe they have discovered (stumbled upon?) that using alternative OSes requires searching for alternative means of support as well. Other descriptions, such as "whereabouts unknown" and "nonexistent" also apply.
Employees are not encouraged to donate any internal organs. You were hired with everything intact, so giving one of your kidneys away would mean a reduction of your salary ( even if said organ was taken under unusual circumstances in your recent leisure trip to Vegas).
Andthe bit about him standing at the station, looking at the terminals, suddenly remembering the portion of the script he neglected to comment out before he was abruptly let go. He was late for work, but he was smiling at his handiwork.
You almost forgot the must-have accessory for the modern whiteboard: the whiteboard backup tool that can save what was written, and save the information in a highly compressed format. It is commonly called the whiteboard eraser so that the nontechnical people can also use it, without having to resort to a "HOWTO manual" but they find the entire set very easy to use (whiteboard+marker pens+eraser), especially in a tight situation like the system failure at Gatwick's.
