Your 60-Hour Work Week Is Not a Badge of Honor

netglen Cords 0,0,1 (717 comments)

American workers get zero vacation days when they start a new position unless they were smart enough to negotiate a week or two during the hiring process. Even so, with these high pressure 60+ hour/week jobs, they frown on workers who dare to take their accrued vacation times. Some of these workers would rather lose their vacation time then appear to be "slackers" to their managers. In contrast workers in certain other countries are given a boatload of vacation from day one.

Steve Jobs Dead At 56

If at the moment of Steve passing on, every generation of iPod, iPhone, and iPad would have started playing Stairway to Heaven followed by the ghostly voice of Steve saying 'Thank you'....

netglen Does it have viewing options? (605 comments)

Does the new IE8 have the option to change the Look-N-Feel to emulate my old Gopher client? Bonus points to emulate my old TVI-950 screen.

Novell's Motion to Lift Stay Granted!

netglen (253539) writes "http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?story=20071127151556531 "Novell has succeeded in getting a court to lift SCO's Chapter 11 immunity from legal action, meaning the firm's IP spat can go to trial. Normally Chapter 11 means that companies cannot take legal action against you — it is designed to protect a firm from creditors while it reorganises. SCO filed for protection in September. Novell's case was heard in Delaware. The court agreed that Novell's motion be granted because the case was ready for trial, SCO has separate lawyers for the case and the court in Utah had already spent several years getting to grips with the legal and technical arguments. Novell's lawyers have already filed notice of Delaware's decision to the court in Utah. Just a week after seeking bankruptcy protection in September, SCO told the Securities and Exchange Commission that "there is substantial doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern". At the end of October SCO got an offer for its Unix business." — The Register"

By Lester Haines

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/03/22/doctor_who _series_four/

"There will be a fourth series of Doctor Who, writer/producer Russell T Davies has confirmed, although he refused to say whether David Tennant would continue in the lead role.

Speaking at the London premiere of the third series, Davies declared: "Series four is officially existing. I'm very excited, but we have known for ages." Tennant refused to be drawn on his possible participation, telling the press: "Do you know how many times I have been asked that question? Do you know how many times I have answered it?"

Series three kicks off on BBC One on 31 March. It features Freema Agyeman as the Doc's new assistant Martha Jones, replacing Billie Piper as Rose Tyler who decided to hang up her time-travelling boots. Agyeman said: "Billie did a tremendous job. I know no one likes change but the nature of the show is change and hopefully fans will be cool with that and give me a chance."

Highlights of the new series are a Dalek two-parter and the Doctor "sharing a kiss" with Martha Jones in the first episode. Hot stuff."

My big question is will Devros ever come back in the new series. :D"
