    "Second only, perhaps, to the strict rules commanded by the world’s religions, the process keeps the code consistent. Glory to the process – praised be the process - the process is good, the process should always be followed, and above all, the process is good for you!"

    I am so much using this to entertain our quality department during our next ISO audit^^

    @LBT: Yeah. There's nothing like the smell of a new raised-floor room with all new 1970s gear in it.

    Now, it wasn’t that Shiva was an incompetent or inexperienced system administrator – not by a long shot.

    In fact, he's such an impressive developer that he invented email--and will sue anyone who claims otherwise!

    Was that a real thing? Did someone who actually didn't invent email claim that they did, and then threaten to sue anyone who said otherwise?

    Also, isn't trying to log into someone else's system when they're not there generally frowned upon, as well as leaving your system unlocked when you're not at your desk?

    Yes. Doesn't stop people from doing it.

    Yes, a gue names Shiva di, and still does.
