Providing it doesn't hinder your work.

If my company ever decides to test, I plan on coming "clean'" with my boss before the test, and lay it out for him. It's what I use to sleep. I've never, and would never use before or during work hours. My regular raises, bonuses, and regular praise from management should be proof of my value to the company.

I don't see it happening, though. I'm lucky for now.

RE: Ranting corner
I'm awaiting three different paychecks from Uncle Sam through three different routes for three different reasons, all of which have been delayed. Umm...what? If I hear "next week" next week it will be 5 checks I'm waiting for and I'm just not gonna show up for work. Okay...I will, but I won't be enthusiastic about it, goddammit!

Not ranting, just slightly baffled. Anyone know how you pronounce the name Nahem?

Thanks. Blush

Had a friend from Israel that spelled his name that way, but was pronounced ' Nachem'

I'm guessing 'ch' is pronounced as the first sound in "hew" than in "chew"?

Either way, Imma wing it, like it matters anyway. (Like anything matters for that matter.) Rolleyes

Thanks.

More like when you make that sound for a big hocker .

Yeah, that's exactly the one I meant. Thanks.

Now it's Yudhijit Battacharjee's turn. Let's how I'll rename him.

Why do writers feel the need to thank anyone, from their dentist to the couple sitting next to them on a plane, whose ears they talked off with crap about their stupid book (both real cases of "acknowledgements" I've dealt with)?

Anyway, that's my cross, so I'd better go back to climbing that hill. Unless they've fixed the cable car. Rolleyes
