>>If the Andy Richter show is at all successful, everyone and their sibling
will want to work in a crowded office for some faceless corporation while

might get the idea that when I stare off into space I'm actually rearranging
the universe to suit my personal whims. Now would that be good or bad? ("No,
I will not update the documentation just because you made the first of the
seventy-first code changes and the release date is today. I'll just alter
reality so that you are now an unemployed COBOL programmer desperately
looking for work as Ted in a Dilbert cartoon.")
