( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm all for more money. Last time, they gave me more stock, which is SO 90s.

The one thing I can think of is that I have to do QA. My actual job is to write tools, automate test procedures, and do performance testing. I'd like to dump all the functional testing and do perl full time.

Continuing through the list, I don't want a more clueful manager. I don't actually have a manager. If anyone above the person I report to was given one clue point as to what I do and how I do it, I'd be in hell. It would mean that some pointy-haired management type was going to start looking over my shoulder, and telling me my job. Just pick any Dilbert cartoon at random. There you go.

As far as the rest:

  1. I already listen to the radio at a reasonable volume. If I want an UNreasonable volume, I use headphones.
  2. If I need to telecommute, I do.
  3. I already have "Nap Time". Everyone else calls it the staff meeting.

OK, fine, I also have a list of hardware I'd like ranging from a couple of DIMMs to a cluster of Sun Blades. And I wouldn't say no to a bigger monitor. And a puppy.

"What do I want? I'm an American. I want more."
