    Back in 2000 when I’d been laid off and was looking for a job in IT, I was told that no one old enough to shave could do any decent IT work. At my age (they said) I had to be in sales on straight commission, with any IT work I sold given to someone about 12 years old.

    Mr Lester thinks if Obama would listen, that’s the answer to the healthcare.gov website problems.

    I’m approaching 50 and i work as system administrator. I manage about 30 servers and 100 workstations. Nobody at my company calls me old, they call me “That hard-nosed mofo that got that s#!t working again”. Some of them don’t shave yet, but i get RESPECT for knowing my stuff…

    When i read the headline on CBS “President would solve website himself, but doesn’t code” my head hit the desk so hard it left a mark on both…


    Has America lost all of it’s marbles? How can it be that a sitting President is required to issue such a statement? YOU SENT MEN TO THE MOON!!!


    May the Lord be my witness, I’m one step away from catching the red-eye to DC and fixing it myself! I can round up a team at my company in five minutes, you give me 1% of the annual defense budget to pay them and for decent hardware and IT IS DONE!


    Jeez Luise! HE is frustrated? No, he’s not. He isn’t NEAR the level of frustration that i feel, and i live across the pond! But i love computers, i know them in and out, and seeing something like this hurts me in a way only other old-school hackers(1) can understand.


    (1): hacker – see definition of 1963 MIT “hackers” who helped NASA, not some criminal you may have seen in the news called this inappropriately

    Your comment is even more irrelevant than this ’toon.

    It makes sense to me! Any friend of the Obama’s or Clintons, can screw up anything and not get fired. And then this paragraph will be labeled Racist!
