Jack Wagner must be coining it right now by ambrosen (4.00 / 2) #1 Fri Mar 09, 2007 at 12:46:30 AM EST
I reckon he'll be able to retire on this fiasco.

The Director's bitter at The Anchor's very well stored and well worth it. It's almost fresh enough that it won't make me ill.

Almost. I'll be on the gin and tonics and soft drinks tonight, though.

I read the intro text and burst out laughing. by greyrat (4.00 / 1) #2 Fri Mar 09, 2007 at 02:52:39 AM EST
I know just where this is going. I would have just stayed in the bar, ordered three pints for myself and said "Whaaaat? Whaaat?" over and over between swallows. Of course, in my case, my mid-life crisis beckons...

    I'd have ignored the call by Cloaked User (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Mar 09, 2007 at 03:37:24 AM EST
    But then, I'm a developer and don't do "on call"; when I walk out the door at the end of the day, that's that. I've done what I'm paid to do, they want more, they can pay more.

    That's not to say that I won't put in long hours as and when it's necessary (of course I will), just that I don't make a habit of it and don't expect it to become the norm, either.

    DST is necessary by Cloaked User (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Mar 09, 2007 at 05:10:26 AM EST
    Implementing the changes is necessary, a 10pm conference call after I'd already left the office for the day would be grounds for resigning, depending on the exact circumstances. Like I said though, I don't do "on call" (and nor do my peers, we're implementation, not support).

    But where's the fun in ignoring it? by greyrat (2.00 / 0) #9 Fri Mar 09, 2007 at 05:38:24 AM EST
    I'd much rather piss then all off to make the point that a) they're late to the DST party, b) stupid for thinking that it'd all get done automagically and c) wasting my precious and sacred time that they don't pay me for -- and face the music later.

    Late to the DST party? by debacle (2.00 / 0) #10 Fri Mar 09, 2007 at 06:04:14 AM EST

    The DST Party has been over for weeks. by greyrat (2.00 / 0) #11 Fri Mar 09, 2007 at 06:42:12 AM EST
    My friend, if you patched your systems weeks ago, like a proper IT person would, you'd be out drinking and sleeping soundly this Saturday night. And 11:00 PM is too US centric. If you really haven't patched your systems, your party will start long before then.

    All of my systems are patched. [nt] by debacle (2.00 / 0) #13 Fri Mar 09, 2007 at 01:14:58 PM EST

    some days... by clock (4.00 / 1) #4 Fri Mar 09, 2007 at 03:26:02 AM EST
    ...it's good to be a coder.  i don't worry about that shit at all.

    however, my wife gets shit about it all the time, so i never stop hearing about it.  i can't wait for the paging to begin in the middle of the motherfucking night.

    i love my legislature.  i really and truly do.  it's nothing but a continuous stream of comedy.


    I agree with clock entirely --Kellnerin

    I totally understand the last minute panic by clover kicker (2.00 / 0) #8 Fri Mar 09, 2007 at 05:20:40 AM EST
    I mean it's not as if they've had a long time to get ready for DST.

    It would be amusing by ucblockhead (4.00 / 1) #12 Fri Mar 09, 2007 at 08:05:34 AM EST
    If the US DST change created all the chaos people expected from Y2K.
