Beautiful timing!



  • Who knows what the "real" WTF is here, but I just thought the coincidence was too funny to resist posting.


    On Monday of this week I gave my two-weeks' notice.  On Tuesday the trial edition of Visual Studio 2005 that my (previous) employer though fit for use by all of our developers expired.

    Hopefully my next job won't be such a source of WTFs.



  • You can't ask for anything better than that...

    That's...awesome.

    Any company who won't get you the tools you need is a WTF in itself (the fact that I use a lot of FLOSS tools notwithstanding.) 

    People will invariably complain about time-limited demos and expiring betas.  You generally want betas to expire. Do you want to support something that has bugs that you fixed because someone's too cheap to get the final version?



  • Maybe they'll upgrade to the Express Editions ;)

    Of course not. They'll simply buy one copy off of eBay and have everybody install it to be "legit."  In fact, that's exactly what they're doing.

    Depending on how much an a-hole you want to be, you could always call the BSA. They just LOVE to do "Audits"

    Maybe instead you should ask for some nice redundancy/severance pay, and you'll be richer faster than you can say blackmail  :-)
