( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've actually kicked network connections loose (why are they located exactly where I put my feet when sitting at my workstation in my cramped, uncomfortable cubicle?).

At one work place, we actually had one of the sysadmins kick the plug out of the wall. It did little to improve my opinion of sysadmins.

And in one of my jobs, we had a customer show off his brand new UPS by pulling the plug. He wanted to pull the UPS's plug out of the wall socket; instead he pulled the computer's plug out of the socket on the UPS. Ooopsie!

Any New York City or Connecticut area jobs? I'm currently unemployed.
