Slashdot is running a story about the six big myths in IT. It's a fluff piece, but one of the comments was an absolute classic.

Harsh Reality of IT Project Life Cycle
# Phase 1: Uncritical acceptance.
# Phase 2: Wild enthusiasm.
# Phase 3: Dejected disillusionment.
# Phase 4: Total confusion.
# Phase 5: Search for the guilty.
# Phase 6: Punishment of the innocent.
# Phase 7: Promotion of nonparticipants/awards for management

Tell me that doesn't sound familiar. Yes, I'm looking forward to reentering life as a corporate drone, can you tell ?

Made a spontaneous detour to the local pub last night when I met my flatmate on the road home. Unfortunately, there is a (silly) rule that no food is served after 2000. Even on a Friday. Sheesh. Call yourself a bar and quit the false advertising, dammit.
