So get this.

Starting next year when I go back to school, I'm going to be a free corporate whore ("IBM University Ambassador") for my university. My job would be to be the "on-site" guy for random shit, evangelize IBM stuff, and organize seminars of propaganda to feed to the undergrads, grads, and professors.

As luck would have it, a pseudo-friend of mine from High School is the Microsoft "Student Ambassador", and started in January. He has the same job, but for Microsoft.

Back in high school, he was your typical Linux-zealot "M$" bashing twerp, while I defended Windows on the desktop.

Here we are, 4 years later, and I'm evangelizing Linux to the university and he's pushing Windows and Visual Studio.

The world is cruel.

But they'll be well-paid corporate cock-suckers, with nice bennies. IBM is considered the much nicer employer to work for, between the two. And people will give Ash less static about being a Blueman.

With Ash's luck, he'll end up going to work for Apple in another 5 or 6 years. ;)

I really don't think Apple likes me right now, I had to get our legal team to talk to their legal team. :)

:lol: Is that a good Jon Miller type story, or just another "Apple is bitching some more" story?

It was me doing the bitching, they were doing nothing.

A fix was dropped in gcc a year ago and they still haven't picked it up in OS X.

I keep hearing that Apple is a bit slow about such things. But, they are a small company, and they seem to prefer to worry about what new colors to offer Macs in.
