    How one Canadian university promotes knowledge

    This story will make you sick.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    On the one hand, this seems like overkill in terms of punishment.

    On the other, it is pretty dumb to run a vulnerability scanner on someone else's site, especially to try to see if they pushed a fix all the way to production within just two days.
    You ever try a pink golf ball, Wally? Why, the wind shear on a pink ball alone can take the head clean off a 90 pound midget at 300 yards.

    Hopefully he'll gain some sort of exposure from this that will land him some sort of work or qualifications.
