hey guys get a life!!!
Laugh a little and work would seem, well, almost fun!
Cheez yanks and their "work till you die" mentality... I actually enjoy
Linux and work and am proud to say I do.
I agree here, we need to have some things to keep things light. I used
to have webshots on my Windows PCs. They had a whole collection of
backgrounds and their software could be used as a screensaver.
Unfortunately, they don't do Linux. I also used to like MS Themes. Some
of the themes you could download off the web personalized your
workstation. We are not robots, we are individuals. I am not just
another brick in the wall.
And as to work till you die, unfortunately, that is because employers in
the US treat employees as commodities with few exceptions. If you don't
put in the time, then you may not be working. It is more survival
mentality. Fortunately for me, I work for a company now that gives you a
little more flex time. My last company, you had to work two years before
getting one weeks vacation and only four holidays a year. One of which
was Easter and you had that day off anyway. Plus you worked ten hour
days and were on call 24/7. Glad to be out of there.
