Re: Linux in the workplace: NT Domains
IME, you can't sit around the office reading books. People complain. Some
even risk saying that you don't have enough to do. Others mutter that if
you have time to read books, perhaps teh company doesn't need you at all.
Secretaries gossip about people being fired "pour encourager les autres."
No, the sad truth is that if you put a book on the company credit card, you
have to take it home with you.
And when the dark day comes where a black bin bag on your desk when you
arrive at the office, IME getting your expenses payed is way more important
than dashing home to see if there's a book the ingrates want returned.
IME, its a cruel world out there where people don't have .edu in their email
