    Surprised it’s just guys in the pics. Maybe the women were too busy to pose for the graphic.

    It’s strange at first, every day is Saturday. You have to buy one of those clocks that also tell the day of the week. The rest of the world thinks you’re up at 9am so expect to be awakened by business calls. M-F. I wish it upon everyone, being retired.
    Oh, and my reminded me. You get to take an hour nap each day at 3pm – just like you did at work only you can’t get caught at home.

    What is this “retired” you speak of? I have heard rumors and legends…

    Now I know who it was in there when I was hiding — before I retired. Now I hide from my wife on my laptop. Peace out.

    Hey! I, too, know that guy who hides in the closet!

  • You can get it on Amazon, or check out clips on YouTube.

    “Hello, IT, have you turned it off and back on?”

    “Yes, Jen, this is ….the Internet”.
    “In that little box? Amazing!”

    BGM, he’s the guy who hides from people in a closet and has dark bags under his eyes, ie the IT Director. LOL

    [@vandamme] Where might I buy one to watch? Amazon?

    Agreed. It does a nice job of breaking things down, but I was waiting for a funny payoff.

  • I have a DVD of the British comedy show “The IT Crowd”. Worth watching if you’re tech savvy, otherwise half the jokes won’t make sense.

    So a Networking Specialist is also called an IT Manager. Strange.

    A pretty good graphic. I kept looking for the punch line, though…

    Very informative.Brings to mind some of the sellers on Craigslist that are so quick to point out that “I’ve been in IT for 20 years” and “this PC blah blah blah”. Yeah,so,WGaF. As though that justifies the ridiculous amount of money they want for it. Paaleeeez !
