Big Plans

I just came across this amusing entry from an old, now-defunct blog of mine on LiveJournal.

The last line pretty much says it all. I must have been really frustrated with my job at the time:
Someone should pay me to sit at home and do great things.
(If you don't get the joke: I now work for Sun Microsystems, at home, on if JRuby's ever considered a "great thing", the prophecy will be fulfilled.)

And yes, I've seen the Microsoft news. I'd hate to be an OSS developer or apologist at Microsoft today. If Sun did something like this I'd resign.
