When bugs are bad

Andrew, for those readers who don’t know by now, packed his bags and emigrated to the UK at the end of last month – and is now looking for a job over there.

Hence, this immortal Google Talk conversation:

Andrew
holy shit
there’s a lot of jobs for programmers

Me
so stop being lazy and get one! 😛

Andrew
working on embedded c/c++ systems for the freaking army

Me
oh.

Andrew
at least i’m british born and can get clearance, so I can still apply for the silly things
coz they specifically ask for that.
but there’s the question, do I want to work there? o_O
sure, if I put a bug in a website, someone gets pissed off, but an accidental bug in a rocket launcher?

I’m still wiping the tears from my eyes at the thought of Andrew putting bugs in rocket launchers – the results would be similar to the results of my lack of skill wielding banana bombs in Worms… 😀
