Damn it feels good to be a gangster.

It's identifiable, work is a stressful place, but whanging a co-worker in the face with a monitor is bad Karma. I cant help but wonder if they used LCD's he might have been able to get more hang-time on the shot though.

Too busy to read this?

Gregg Bond

Some answers that should resonate....

Or, as we suspect, are you just too busy doing all this stuff to care? Yes

And what's keeping you so busy? Users

What are the bug bears and headaches taking up inappropriate amounts of your time? Thier idiot problems

What practical ways around these issues are there? Yes, I call it a shotgun.

On a serious note, IT management systems are great for servers, but most of them just don't require that much of my time. I spend about 10 minutes a day checking the backup log and dealing with user additions/deletions, everything else on my plate is because a user has done something stupid. There are just too many ways a user can be an idiot to possible code into a management system.

So what's in a URL? The Reg URL?

Gregg Bond

There is a .co.us

However it specifically relates to business in the state of Colorado.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.us

.com was always supposed to be for commercial use however the growth of the Internet in the States far outstripped the commercial use anywhere else in the world, so they "just got there first"

TBH arguing over the nationality of .com's isnt the problem, ICANN and its contracts with the US Dpt Of Commerce should be looked into more. I'd prefer if they farmed off that sort of thing to the ITU or something.

Brown dwarf cools its jets

Let us not forget d=√13h

Where d = distance in kilometres and h=hight of observation point in metres, therefor 1.8m (approx 6ft) equates to 4.837354649 Km or 3.00579283 miles.

Basically it would be hidden by the horizon far sooner than 40km. I guess im just being pedantic.
