Most of our readers have jobs doing computer-related work. Not all of those readers find their jobs enjoyable. If you could have your ideal job in a computer-related field, what would it be? If you are in your ideal job, tell us why it is ideal. Related to that, how many hours a week do you work, and do you think it's reasonable? What would you consider a reasonable work week? We're interested in getting an international cross-section, so if you live outside the US, we'd love to hear from you as well.

I was watching "Undercurrents" (CBC pop/counter-culture info show) last night, and they did a bit on the Ultima Online Geaming environment (actually, it was about the real-life couple that ACTUALLY got married in Ultima...)

They showed some of the people who work at "Ultima Corp." (Forgot the company name) including one of the guys who gets to be GOD(!). He has "complete control over every object & character in the environment". I saw a brief screenshot of his console. He had buttons like "Earthquake", "Lightning" & "Smite!"

How cool is THAT!!!

"Rod & Todd, this is God. I want you to take all the cookies from your kitchen and place them on the Simpson's front porch."

"But those cookies don't belong to us..."

"rrrrr. do you want a happy God, or a VENGEFUL GOD!!!!!"
