A Resignation Letter

Blogged on 15-Jun-05 01:29:13 am in DrainBrain -- Viewed by : Fans

There are many tips on how to write resumes. But how about this for a
resignation letter...(Supposed to be an actual letter sent by a fed up
U.S employee in Port Huncliff, NewEngland)

As an employee of an institution of higher education, I have a few very
basic expectations. Chief among these is that my direct superior shares
an intellect that ranges above the common ground squirrel. After your
consistent and annoying harassment of myself, and my co-workers during
the commission of our duties, I can only surmise that you are one of the
few true genetic wastes of our time.

Asking me, a network administrator, to explain every little nuance of
everything I do each time you happen to stroll into my office is not
only a waste of time, but also a waste of precious oxygen. I was hired
because I know about Unix, and you were apparently hired to provide
amusement to myself and other employees, who watch you vainly attempt to
understand the concept of "cut and paste" for the hundredth time.

You will never understand computers. Something as incredibly simple as
binary still gives you too many options. You will also never understand
why people hate you, but I am going to try and explain it to you, even
though I am sure this will be just as effective as telling you what an
IP is.

Your shiny new iMac has more personality than you ever will. You walk
around the building all day, shiftlessly looking for fault in others.
You have a sharp-dressed, useless look about you that may have worked
for your interview, but now that you actually have responsibility, you
pawn it off on overworked staff, hoping their talent will cover for your
glaring ineptitude. In a world of managerial evolution, you are the
blue-green algae that everyone else eats and laughs at. Managers like
you are a sad proof of the Dilbert principle.

Seeing as this situation is unlikely to change without you getting a
full frontal lobotomy, I am forced to tender my resignation, however I
have a few parting points.

1. When someone calls you in reference to employment, it is illegal to
give me a bad recommendation. The most you can say to hurt me is "I
prefer not to comment." I will have friends randomly call you over the
next couple of years to keep you honest, because I know you would be
unable to do it on your own.

2. I have all the passwords to every account on the system, and I know
every password you have used for the last five years. If you decide to
get cute, I am going to publish your "favorites list", which I
conveniently saved when you made me "back up" your useless files. I
believe that terms like "Lolita" are not usually viewed favorably by
the administration.

3. When you borrowed the digital camera to "take pictures of your
mothers b-day", you neglected to mention that you were going to take
pictures of yourself in the mirror nude. Then you forgot to erase them
like the techno-moron you really are. Suffice it to say I have never
seen such odd acts with a ketchup bottle, but I assure you that those
have been copied and kept in safe places pending the authoring of a
glowing letter of recommendation. (Try to use a spell check please, I
hate having to correct your damn mistakes.)

Thank you for your time, and I expect the letter of recommendation on
my desk by 8:00 am tomorrow, not ONE minute later. One word of this to
anybody and all of your little twisted repugnant obsessions will be
open to the public. Never f*ck with your systems administrators,
because they know what you do with all your free time.

I was in the process of creating a NewMedia presentation for my pal, David for his Event Management company, when I came across this video of a great performer. The vid bit below is just a small part of the other astounding feats that he does.

:!: - Get his name from David

That is Suresh and he lives in Chennai. Freaks out with snakes. Kisses them, dances with them, wears them like a necklace. I liked this part, cos he converts the snake into a sax..:D

Visited this nice site called Jeans with Red Zippers of a visitor to Rohz's blog.

Started reading and this post looked interesting and gave the link to a page where one could find out "What was No.1 on the day you were born ?" on the UK and US Charts.

I wondered why just b'day and searched for other eventful days in my dull life &#59;).
Found some bands I dint even know existed 8|.

The other stuff on the site tickled my music cells and I spent quite a bit 'o time surfing around and bookmarked it for future reference. B)

This Day In Music is defenitely a Music Lovers's delight...

It's a Bugz Life...

Found this funny set of cartoons on Software Bugs by Kazem Ardekenian while surfing the web.

There were lots more, but I guessed I liked these more than the others


Attitude or Just Dumb ?

I host our DeepWoods 80s site with 1and1.com, who call themselves the "The World's No.1 Web Host".

It so happened that a year and 1/2 back, they came out with an offer of 3 years free hosting for US and Canadaian residents. They offered 500 MB space and unlimited bandwidth. My good friend, Sudha pounced on the offer, registered and we decided to host DeepWoods 80s on the server.

The server is fast, but that's about it... The Control Panel is by far the slowest I've ever come across in my life ( I used to have nightmares when I was on dial-up ) and accessing run-of-the-mill stuff such as Mail account creation or Hit Stats takes anything between 5 to 8 minutes on 256k speeds :( . I have written several mails to support about this, but I get a standrad blah-blah-blah as reply...

Last week, I suddenly got spammed the fuck out and I noticed that the spammer was relaying through 1and1 mail servers directly. I copied the entire message headers, shot them a mail asking them if it was not a security / privacy lapse and how the server was allowing mails to come through non-existent aliases with the domain name (like support@deepwoods80.com, which does not exist; the server does not have a catch-all a/c either) to my regular existent aliases.

I loved the reply I recd . :]

"Please direct your complaint to abuse@thespammer.com as we find that the SPAM is originating from thespammer.com domain"

Hey lady, that is what I'm complaining about and I am the one who gave you the domain name pulled out from the message headers. 8|

Heehee, I've heard jokes from my call-centre pals on some of the queries they get, but this must be one of the dumbest replies ever recd.

Just wondering if this is just attitude or :crazy:
