Why Are There Monkeys Working in R&D?

While downloading Visual Studio 2008 (released today as promised. 21% downloaded - yeah baby!), I decided to share some of the fun sites and and articles I read over the weekend.

There's really no connection between the links, other than their obvious tech appeal and that I found them funny.
  • 10 types of programmers you’ll encounter in the field - ouch! This one is too close to the real world. If I recall correctly, type #9 - Mediocre Man - a developer who does just enough to survive and can never be fired - used to be called Klingon in the past. No, it has nothing to do with the Star Trek alien race. It comes from "cling-on" - a person who just won't let go smile.

  • The Warning Label Generator - will allow you to generate useful, and funny warning labels:

  • What do profile photos on social networks really mean?

  • Just a funny thing I read about a guy commenting on the low level of developers in his R&D organization: "when you pay peanuts, you get monkeys" biggrin.

  • Despite what it claims, this site - what to do in an emergency - has nothing to do with Homeland Security.

  • If you really want everyone to hate you, try one of these 32 ways sure to tick people off.

  • The Evolution of the programmer - sad, but true. We start with Basic, we end up writing documents and boring emails about TPS reports (Office Space reference - if you haven't seen this movie yet, stop wasting your time here and go watch!).

  • Courtroom quotations - If even half is true, we're in trouble...

  • And finally, all of the 6 Rocky movies in 5 seconds. I pity the fool!
    (This link is dedicated to my friend Mr. T - get well soon!)
At 58% download - either I write slowly, or my internet connection is great.
