I'm not saying that the software we use at work for ordering software we use at work for ordering and inventory control is out of date but it still uses the same green on black.

Ok, yeah, it sucks and is outdated as fuck. I've been complaining about it since I started. How can a multi billion dollar corporation use such outdated software?


What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
