Maybe they just hired Shatner as a consultant.

And then Bones said: "Dammit, Jim! I'm a doctor, not a spell-checker!"

I laughed at a lot of people reading these kinda articles. I still laugh at paula bean.

But the cobol guy, I think he's a very interesting person and he just seems depressed.

If I had a company, I'd at least get him over for an interview.

You misspelled the following words: big, business, can't, define, follow, if, in, new, own, standards, that's, the, thing, you, and your.

You should try using a spellchecker for you next post.


Nice of you to take the trouble to alphabetize the list. :-)

The "who's" is wrong, should be "whose". Wait, it is a spelling checker only...

Personally, my favourite bit from the resume is: "Contracting COBOL at various jobs".

I mean, I know COBOL is meant to be bad, but is it really contagious?

My company would hire him in a second,, in fact he might be my project manager now that I think about it.

....Now he's emerged into the startling reality of a rapidly evolving industry, where his skill-set is no longer of any value. That's gotta suck.

Yup; definitely a case of future shock. When the nifty gizmo you bought last year for seventy dollars (after looking around for a good price) turns up this morning as a promotional gimmick in your cornflakes.

Now I'm beginning to think that a substantial number of us need psychiatric help, preferably with strong and powerful drugs. (I am no longer young, and somewhat careworn.)
A demographic particularly vulnerable to future shock.

Thirty years from now, this will be you.

Thirty years from now, I'll be dead.

Can I have the drugs now?

Incidentally, "Future Shock" is so 1970s. I'll take the root beer floater; you're welcome to the acid blotter.

TRWTF is that the spell-checker doesn't sort alphabetically.

What, you're saying I'm thirty years out of date?! When the hell did that happen?

OK, I'll take the acid blotter. You sound like a man who really needs a root beer floater.

That perhaps ironically worded pitch is, of course, essentially what many ERP vendors and their associated consulting partners offer routinely.

I will not be calling this person for an interview.

It would be such fun though.

I'd definitely have the "Indians" guy over for an interview. He might be crap, but he might just as well be brill(i)ant.

But then maybe I just have a soft spot for people who've been in IT since the seventies.

I think the best part is when he says, "this mixed with my lack of ambition results in political suicide."

That's awesome. I wish I had him on my team. I want someone who creates things that I can't understand (which I presume is due to obfuscation and lack of commenting) and then rolls his eyes and sighs when I ask, "Hey what does this button do?"

I've been around severe forms of apathy. I'd rather have stupidity on my team than apathy. It makes me mad when people know how to do something but... like... man, just don't want to... uh... you know... do it.

Ouch! That spell checker output makes my eyes water. A worse UI would be more than a bit difficult to come up with (well, not without actually applying effort...)


We are talking about Oracle. Oracle's expertise in crappy UIs is legendary.

Putting the word "suicide" on your resume... in any context...

Nice.
