Microsoft's making me pee in the dark
Microsoft’s taken to putting the lights in the women’s room on a timer, so they turn off after 7 p.m. I’m sure its for energy-conservation issues, and I appreciate the idea. But I hate peeing in the dark when the lights simply won’t turn on after 7 p.m. All three floors of the building; all the women’s rooms. I have to use the one stall closest to the crack of...

Funny, I still remember the first time I was shown google (I was an Alta-vista user), while I was working at the Seahawks. I don’t think google needs to be concerned. Yet. I’m sure people have furthered my question with real research, but I do wonder if this is just...
