    WTF???????
  • rudraigh (cs)

    How is it that a person who has been stripped of position, code and power still manages to thrash unchecked through the source code and not get fired?

  • Gary Williams (unregistered)

    The real WTF is that tyson hasn't been investigated. The whole "last login" change reeks of red flags. What's he up to?!

  • DOA (cs)

    The solution is simple... download MySQL, PHP, Apache and/or any relevant technology you prefer and burn it on a CD. Then use it to chase Tyson out of the building. That stuff's like garlic to a vampire for this guy.

    "Tyson.. look what I have" "Wha-what's that?" "21st century technology!" "Oh, no, not that, anything but that. Have you no mercy?! NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...."

    Do you have any kind of Change Management System that Tyson violated when he made these ad-hoc changes?

  • Shannon (unregistered) in reply to Jon

    Well its not quite what you're making it out to be, Jon.

    Spitted actually means that something was impaled on a spit (skewer type object for cooking meat)

    Spat means that something was ejected from the mouth.

    Two different words entirely, like Zylon said :D

    Erm, no. "Spitted" has a completely different meaning to "spat". Although, apparently, it would have been fine 2000-ish years ago.

    On the contrary. He must be an excellent coder, as he understands the languages he works with and writes them correctly.

    Steve should endeavor to have a new source code repository created and move everyone except Tyson to it. Then just let him make his magnificent changes to the code no one is using. He probably won't even notice that no one else is modifying the code for months.

    If Tyson isn't fired with extreme prejudice, both and the company that employs him will be making headline news, in the latest example of a rogue IT employee destroying a company's information infrastructure.

    The real WTF is that no one forced Tyson to either recognize that writing code other people could understand is a requirement of the job.

    When he implied that someone needed years of experience with the code to understand it, he was standing on the rooftops shouting that he was a miserable failure at his job.

    Here's the one that made me do a double-take. They were copying and pasting unusable code.
    the new code is pretty much copied-and-pasted old code where, instead of printing text and VT102 codes, it prints HTML. Most of the old code wasn't reusable
