    As I'm looking at this, the advertisement shows a dude typing with his keyboard resting at a painful painful angle on his lap (it's propped up by the edge of the table), and all I can say,
    "Boy is that guy gonna' need a hand transplant 5-10 years from now..."

    Carpel tunnel is no picnic, people, but at least now I can be like my grandfather, who till the last days before he died of lung cancer insisted that the burgeoning pace of technology would give a cure for cancer long before he died of smoking.

    Um, yeah.

Computers will not be perfected until they can compute how much more than the estimate the job will cost.

Working...
