I despair! I really do.

Larry Ellison sets the Catz among the pigeons: Safra officially sole Oracle CEO

Groove-Cat

Um... well done?

slow news day? Now if there was some parallel universe in which the Big Red made a loss, I might be a little more "pleased"

Oracle finally responds to wage discrimination claims… by suing US Department of Labor

Groove-Cat

I used to work for Big Red for 2 years. Fcuk me, that was enough!

There seemed to be this unwritten mantra, "If you're not sales or marketing, you were considered an overhead"

I worked in Cloud Support, so yeah that made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. :/

Even if Ellison gave all his money away today, that would be great, but he would still be a dickhead.

Helen Fospero makes yet another Brit telly presenter to win IR35 case against taxman

Groove-Cat

I am another that can attest to the almost criminal way the HMRC works. years ago as a contractor they approached me in regards to a tax return from years before, claiming that I owned them 9.5k. they even had the audacity to send the bailiffs to my house with a letter of disrestrate (remove items from my home to the value of) about a week after the initial letter. I dread to think what might have happened had i been home that day, as it turned out the fcukers owned me 950 quid.

it seems the HMRC are putting the values in the wrong columns on the spread sheet!
