Why, oh why, did I get paired with THIS guy?

Some time ago I was given a C# project to do. I won’t go into any details of the project for confidentiality reasons. What I will tell you though, is that I was put in a 2 person team with one Michael Cullen (a former CTI student). Now, I’m working and he’s not, so my role is to manage the project while his role is to do the actual coding. Now, Michael is one lazy little shit. He thinks that he’s a L33T script kiddie hax0r and would far rather spend his worthless time breaking things than doing actual work. It’s no wonder then that he’s been unemployed ever since he graduated from CTI at the beginning of this year. But to get back to the project, I’ve been trying to contact him for about a month now regarding the project. He doesn’t return my messages, and when he actually answers the phone (a rarity) and gets asked to come in to CTI to discuss the project, he never does. I get the distinct impression that he’s avoiding me, for reasons that should by now be obvious to you.

Let me tell you more about Michael. As mentioned, he thinks that he’s the greatest hacker known to mankind. Meanwhile, a 2 year old could own him, and then spank him silly with a big stick until he cries for mercy. He got called into disciplinary hearings at CTI countless times for trying to break into their servers or do something equally stupid (yes, we caught him every time – so much for his hacking skills, or lack thereof). He has absolutely no moral values whatsoever either. I was told about one episode concerning Michael when he was at school. I won’t go into too much detail, but it involves self-pleasure and Religious Education class. Disgusting child. And, it goes without saying that he has absolutely no social skills whatsoever (or he would at least had the decency to answer my messages).

I’ve had enough of him now, and I think that it’s time to teach him a very good lesson. I’m going to follow jerith’s lead, and post his e-mail address for all the world to see: reelix@websurfer.co.za. Do what you like with it.

(It’s not in my nature to flame people, by the way. Not unless they give me a very good reason.)

As an endnote, see if you can tell me how many crew members from the USS Enterprise it takes to change a light bulb. Put what you think it is in the comments. I’ll tell you the answer next time I post something.

    Is this before or after they realigned the phase array, and encountered some force they were woefully poortly euqipped to handle, but yet defeated anyhow?

    In response to that last comment, I quote from Eric S. Raymond’s guide “How To Ask Questions The Smart Way”, found at http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

    “Some people assert that many hackers have a mild form of autism or Asperger’s Syndrome, and are actually missing some of the brain circuitry that lubricates “normal” human social interaction. This may or may not be true. If you are not a hacker yourself, it may help you cope with our eccentricities if you think of us as being brain-damaged. Go right ahead. We won’t care; we like being whatever it is we are, and generally have a healthy skepticism about clinical labels.”

    ‘Nuff said.

    Also, any reason for remaining anonymous?
