In Case You Missed It
When it comes to Office Germs
, they love neat.
University of Arizona microbiologist Dr. Chuck Gerba swabbed [Heather] Wright's office, looking for disease-causing germs.
"Her [computer] mouse has about a hundred times more bacteria than a toilet seat," Gerba said.
Even the office clean freak — whose desk generally was clean — had a filthy keyboard.
The most cluttered desk, on the other hand, had the least bacteria.
I always suspected that the neat-freaks were plague carriers.
Programmer prefers new role on poo patrol
: “US computer programmer Steve Relles has the poop on what to do when your job is outsourced to India - make a living as a dog butler.”
Bill Gates can’t find programmers to hire because they’re all out shoveling manure after spending years learning how to program computers. Of course, Bill is too paranoid about people pirating his software to outsource; he wants to lock programmers up at night on the Redmond plantation and then void their visas when he’s done with them.
For the sake of balance, Steve Jobs is even more paranoid that Gates about secrecy.
The real techies, Wozniak at Apple and Allen at Microsoft, took their money and ran some time ago.
