    Chester and his companion, Colby, were booked to work for the California Cheese Co..

    You've created a Muenster!

    Just then, a large, sweaty man burst through the door of the trailer. He dramatically removed his aviator sunglasses and raised an eyebrow. “You… must be the… other guys,” he observed. He held his sunglasses in a way best suited towards showing off his biceps. “Well, The Rock and his crew have been brought in to take this project to the next level, once you scrubs finish your piece. I am The Rock. You don’t need to know The Rock’s real name, so don’t bother asking. I’ll whip your monkey asses all over God’s green Earth.”

    Last guy who went around calling himself "The Rock", his real name turned out to be "Dwayne". That's the real reason he wouldn't reveal it.

    You could say that they were caught between The Rock and a hard cheese place....

    Ehehehehe... sometimes I slay myself, I really do.

    They churned out increasingly flashy demos that delivered no functionality in the most dramatic way possible. It impressed the management of California Cheese Co., and it became ever-more apparent that Chester and Colby were just a nuisance.
    You might even say they bleu them away.

    “You… must be the… other guys,” he observed, Brie-zily.

    Plenty more slices of this type of humour were that came from.

    Chester’s employer was often contracted to be a “firefighter”, when projects were ablaze and people were prepared to jump out of the windows to escape the heat.

    Is that a 911 joke? Even if it wasn't meant to be ... it is. Mod 'not funny', Mod 'insensitive clod'.

    So let's see if this makes sense: You are one of the few companies still using an old language. Only a few developers still support it. You often screw over your software development contractors. You make life miserable for for the contractors who are wise enough to not let you screw them over. You get screwed over by a con-man.

    So, let's see. The trustees in bankruptcy of your last few contractors will be going after CCC for outstanding payments and on late payment will report the lack of payment to the credit reporting companies. There are even companies out there that will buy outstanding receivables and go after the companies that owe the money. Good luck getting any more loans or new suppliers that will give you any terms better than COD or Prepaid.

    Also, as your reputation spreads through the small number of developers that are still supporting APT, you will find it increasingly difficult to even get a contractor that will put up with your antics. Then you will be left with nobody wiling to do the work you need done. It is always better to treat your people, whether employee or contractor, fairly and with respect.

    Indeed. It certainly didn't happen at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire back in 1911, no sir, nope.

    Actually iWantToKeepAnon i believe it refers to the stock traders jumping on a bad day. So before you bring 911 into look for the more stereotyped case please. to quote South Park "Ike! Do your impersonation of David Caruso's Career." "Its my turn. jumps"
