Quips and Quotes
At work I’ve written the help desk / task / bug tracking system. It has been developed mostly in the off hours, weekends and slow friday afternoon. Either way, I add little features here and there, and this weeks feature is random* quips and quotes injected on each page.
I found about 25 quotes to seed the list, all worthy of being read by fellow co-workers. However, I found this great quote by a kid on Slashdot (News for Nerds, Stuff that Matters ) that just could not make my list. The topic is ‘USPS goes GNU/Linux‘ and the comments quickly turned to cheap people complaining about paying 40 cents to send a letter across the entire country in a couple days.
Either way here is the comment that I thought was funny:
Only old people use physical mail these days.
If you’re 30-something, you rely on email.
If you’re in your 20s, you use IM
If you’re 13 like me, it’s all Twitter, all the time. Bonus: I have no need to receive packages because I shoplift everything.
* Pseudo random of course….
