Programming languages

Here’s another one. I didn’t know that Windows XP and Windows Server 2008 are programming languages. As per some employer’s job requirements – apparently yes, they are. They are looking for a Senior QA Analyst with a B.Sc. Degree in Computer Science, that knows a few “programming …

Recruit me using a Hotmail address

Nothing wrong with having a Hotmail email address. Or Live, or Outlook for that matter. I am an IT professional, or at least that's what I would like to think. Although I would not class myself as "top of the line" - I have managed to build some experience and …

Old Spice - Commercials That Catch

I've watched this Old Spice advert over and over - it's only 33 seconds but really good in my opinion. "Look at your man, now back to me"...and the ending it's just hilarious - "I'm on a horse". Check it out on YouTube: Old Spice | The Man Your Man Could Smell …
