    Microsoftie gossip ..

    Due to my location (Thames Valley) I know alot of Microsoft Employees. Besides alot of "Jokes" about "Edsel" in the last few weeks there has been some real FEAR among some people. Friends of my Daughters where both parents work for Microsoft, the mother wispered to my wife that there were rumours of layoffs at microsoft.

    Other softies continually assure me that the technologie cycle will speed up again ..

    Has anyone else heard stuff like this ?

    None whatsoever Especially since there is a massive IT skills shortage in this country, I couldn;t see any of them unemployed for long.

    I'm more interested in how the computer industry is changing ..

    On the other hand .. I'd love to see the person who thought up the paperclip thing queueing up outside the dole office ..

    Dole office = unemployment centre = benefits office = social security office ..

    Paper Clip = little piece of metal that you use to hold a few pieces of paper together..

    I was joking about the Paper clip, as I am a Linux user and don't use office.

    I didn't know about the dole office (that phrase), since they are in the USA, I imagine they would "line up" a the "unemployment office".
