About 15 years ago, and the QA idiots are less incompetent than the Sunshine | [little ray of sunshine] s guilty of acrobat/reader.

I'd recently started a new job and moved into my own home. I'd been invited to a beta for a new version of a game I'd been playing heavily for years. The developer send the NDA as a PDF form which would've been great since I didn't have a printer; except that it was only possible to 'sign' and save the form if you had the full version of Acrobat, not the free reader.

I ended up screenshotting it to MS paint, filling in all the normal text using the text tool, freehanded my signature (I was really tempted to use the cursive font to see if they said anything), and then saved it off as several .bmp files (for spite) which I emailed off. Surprisingly for an organization that created such an asinine process they were quite happy with the result.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
