I keep forgetting to mention this, so here you are. Monday I start a new (real) job working full-time for VERITAS Software as a Sr. Tech Support Engineer for their NetBackup Unix product. There it is. Now you know.
Hopefully I can get up to speed just in time for Symantec to take over and let me go. Noooo that's negative thinking! I'm going to be at THIS place for ANOTHER seven years! Yeah!
Forgive me if you've already covered this, but do you intentionally go for ugly ties because they're ugly, or are you a cheapskate when it comes to buying ties, therefore ending up with ugly ties by default?
