Sultans of Slime

Being employed at Bond University also means that you are subjected to their corporate mailing list:

The Bond Spammigator (Ta Ta Ta Taaaaaa!)

In effect this means that about 10 to 20 emails per day are force fed down to you, all from various administrative units, superiors, ueber-superiors, assistants of the temporary under-superiors, managing directors of advising assistants to the marketing subcommittee on christmas cards, etc.

The corporate university. A beauty. And so educated, too.

They always inform you about all important changes. Really important things. And all of them.

One might think that they could choose to do it in a clear and straightforward language. Sober and sound, just the plain facts. But the problem with them is that they are not wired that way:

The publication of the May 2006 timetable at the intranet website http://bangers.its.bond.edu.au/ was recently promulgated and access to this site has been favourably received. To enable a wider audience to view this and subsequent timetables a new 'www' web address is being considered. .... Henceforth the site will in the future be approachable using the new address timetable.bond.edu.au once this new configuration will be finally concluded. We will advise the end of this transitioning process and will prepare another university-wide announcement.

This is what a

vi /etc/bind/db.bond.edu.au
timetable  CNAME   bangers.its.bond.edu.au
:wq
/etc/init.d/bind reload

sounds in Bond-speak.

With the sultans.

Dear Rho, I'm an Edutainer

Dear Rho,

I'm an Edutainer at Blonde University on the Golf Coast in Croctalia. My uber-under over assistant director manager would like to offer you a position, as you fit our corporate profile, guidelines and missionary statement so well ...

Well, I have been known to fit into any organisation. I bring wisdom, joy and comfort to the working class there.

The IP address your post originates from lets me doubt about your motifs, though. But I might visit your place at some point. Make sure you are not there then ;-)
