I have heard of Microsoft's Wallop

It's sad to see how companies have been treating their workforce lately. Be labeled "resource" and treated like a machine, with no time to lunch, no time to dinner; with time to be at work and no time be back at home. They act in this unfair way and the government pretend they don't see it. That's why I sometimes raise my hands, praise God and cry out "Come Lord. Let us see your rightous and merciful throne of glory, Jesus! Come and take us out of Egypt, out of this slavery way of live, where the evil eats the flesh of the humble."

Hint: try something original and do it on your blog.

Hope they do not loose my 1 Gb of mail and information.
