This is quite possibly the most out-of-control hysterical post I've yet seen. Not one comment on the articles! But who could read them anyway? Third time's a charm?

Don't sweat it, xtian, let us laugh with you ;)

xtian, you threw yourself to the lions on this one, but the lions are being nice!

Great case mods. The coffeemaker is a classic.

For anyone totally lost, HERE IS THE SOURCE ARTICLE! -LOL.

Right now the idea of hiring me as your company's next IT or server programmer is frightening. My programming for today is over, but give me a few months and it could happen.

Just like programmers have seen their jobs go away to foreigners with a keyboard, the same can be said for designers. I thought these links together show a trend for casual attitude towards other people's jobs.

I love this post. I will only be sad when/if mathowie corrects the main links and removes (pretty much every link in this post) the links that refer to the trouble.
