Truth about working in an IT industry

Just want to share to you guys this nice article I've first found in a link posted by a friend of mine in Plurk. I must say, it's funny and a bit true.

See them below:

1. We work weird (night) shifts...
Just like prostitutes.

2. They pay you to make the client happy...
Just like a prostitute.

3. The client pays a lot of money, but your employer
keeps almost every penny...
Just like a prostitute.

4. You are rewarded for fulfilling the client's dreams...
Just like a prostitute.

5. Your friends fall apart and you end up hanging out
with people in the same profession as you...
Just like a prostitute.

6. When you have to meet the client you always have to
be perfectly groomed...
Just like a prostitute.

7. But when you go back home it seems like you are
coming back from hell...
Just like a prostitute.

8. The client always wants to pay less but expects
incredible things from you...
Just like a prostitute.

9. When people ask you about your job, you have
difficulties to explain it...
Just like a prostitute.

10. Everyday when you wake up, you say: "I'm not going
to spend the rest of my life doing this."
Just like a prostitute ........

How to remove Limited or No Connectivity message

Limited or No Connectivity
My computer is finally okay. Thanks to Jeffrey (an officemate) for helping me. And I also love the fact that after he has reformatted my computer, those programs that I need are already installed. I only asked him to help me fix or diagnose it but he has done other extra things to make me love and value my PC more..

I was actually troubled days before it has not been fixed cause my work requires me to be online all the time. I've tried the entire different safe mode, the last known good configuration and the normal loading stuff but I can't really log on to my PC. I rebooted it a lot of times and same thing happen, there was a blue screen. They said it has something to do with the memory. So I opened my system unit and cleaned but it didn't work still. The same went when I've tried removing and returning the hard disk.

So when everything seems to be hopeless, I resort to have my PC be reformatted. I am jus so thankful that my memory is still working fine. Now, I am back online! Thanks, thanks..I was the one who made the simple configuration in connecting to the internet. And I want to share you guys if you still don't know it this basic solution to remove the Limited or No Connectivity message. You might be thinking you are still not connected but actually you are.. it was just like a default message..

How to remove it:
1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type ncpa.cpl, and then press ENTER. The Network Connections dialog box opens.
3. Double-click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties.
4. On the General tab, click to clear the Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity check box.
5. Click OK, and then click Close.
