Hi Folks!

And for a cynical start to a lousy year, have a real-world summary of how projects work...

www.kuro5hin.org

Most textbooks and methodology guides start with statistics proving that software projects are disastrously prone to failure. I'll take that for granted.

They then propose complicated rules designed for a fantasy business world where cooperative workers idealistically work towards the common goal of maximizing shareholder value.

A couple of weeks in a typical office should disabuse you of that. Real world companies are made up of individuals working for their own goals: career advancement, more money, or just the chance to slack off. Occasionally it may be in someone's interest to build a successful project. Usually it's more useful to sabotage it.

A lot of it is IT/software related but the majority can apply to pretty much any project...

Update: Printers

Quick update to the printers post I put up the other day.

After checking it seems that none of the printers have USB connections (nor JetDirect cards) so the only connection possibility really is parallel. That is of course unless you want to buy a USB->Parallel converter, or happen to have an old JetDirect card hanging around.

Please let me know if you are still interested and in which model:

2100
4000
4050
