    Avoiding work is getting harder and harder - it's actually hard work in itself. Some days I think I would be better off just doing it.

    You hardly need a work experience new grad screen jockey in meerkats and a spread collar to sweat a spreadsheet and NPV or PE to work out Billabong has had its day and is on its way to an asset strip and bonuses for execs and board prior to a windup or trading at .05c and blame everybody but themselves. A torn back of envelope would do.

    I believe he's taking a hiatus from the forums.

    Nothing beats working your ass off and getting a D KPI Rating.

    Long live KPI performance ratings.

    Too many precious pork chops on SF.

    Fritzl would have pissed off a heckuva lot of them...

    Too many new 20 year old kids on the block, asking questions that only a style virgin would ask.

    Never really thought that was an issue here, save the hornet-nest-kicking "want to wear double monks but afraid of looking gay" post a few pages ago.

    I've got no problems with people trying to learn and asking anything. Theres no stupid questions .. etc.
    nor do I have any great problem with the double monk question - well aside from correcting the attitude of looking gay - whatever that is.-

    The thing that ruins forums is experts running a correct line who know sfa and put down newcomers and don't support a spirit of inquiry. This little corner of SF has managed to avoid most of that.

    Anyone interested in a copy of Flusser's Dressing the Man for $40? It's mint minus a slight rip in the cover (talking millimetres).

    Spoken like a mathematician! :)


    +1. I've always tried to be relatively humble in my views and opinions, and to put things tactfully and I hope that I've generally been successful in that.

    However, I'm sometimes surprised to see new members who will join knowing little and asking lots of questions, and within six or eight weeks will be self-appointed experts, chiding other members, giving them a tongue lashing for wearing something that's not "appropriate business dress" or which doesn't have the right degree of tie-knot-dimpling and so on.
