Work (the old one) is collapsing around me. After steady leakage of experienced people from the central computing staff over the last year, we're now down to one (1) unix person and a bunch of novell/nt people drafted in to help him out. So far this week 1 day's emails have gone missing completely, there's been 'a small explosion' (WHAT!!??) in the main server room, half the disks in the uni are no longer being mounted, and the system has been disconnected from the outside world for several hours every night. Seems like saving on staff costs may have some minor disadvantages... On the other hand it's probably going to convince management that Unix is completely unreliable and that they should accelerate the movement to NT. Boy am I glad I'm going.

Certificated jpb on grounds of general solidarity and wishing luck (and being unable to publicise gMems otherwise due to problems quoted above). Am I right to think you can't effectively certificate above your own ranking?
