Re: I have to thank ken for my passwords

You shouldn't even type that here, it's a brain worm. I was slapping away at a Sun when a young developer in the open plan office confessed happily to everyone in ear shot that he'd previously deleted his machine. I thought, what an idiot. Then he said, "Oh no, I've done it again", and I thought what a moron.

And then I did it myself. When you are coding, and someone inserts a thought into your code, well, I dislike open plan offices. Coders should have sound proofed booths.
