  • Extortion Verging on Proctology

    Two analogies... our sister company's website that cost 25,000 even though it's 100% static HTML content, and the hosting provider that charges 60 every time you want to add an MX record to your domain's DNS.

    For the record, that domain is nothing to do with me - I have the sense to host all my domains with a supplier who offers me full control over them.

    So, what have your companies been spending their money on?

        New BMW for the bosses wife who works part time (Vanity plates)
        New Ford for part time office lady
        New car for boss

        $1 for new screwdrivers
        $2.50 for roll of stickytape and disposible dispenser
        (Supplied own mini switch as 24 port Linksys had run out of ports & patch leads as well)

        Need to go back working for myself.

          Part timers get company cars?

          And you spent a whole dollar on screwdrivers? we have one departmental screwdriver (Torx - 2 HP machines in stores, that one time when Dell stopped offering XP downgrades) that we stole from stores.
