Consider it, you were warned.

Ok, the idea for this did come from /. -- I did make the graphic though.

That's doing the rounds again?

Too bad the similar message on the "Know Ball" they handed out at Lotusphere
2001 is "Outlook So So" -- not as much of a condenmation
I still like my old Mug .....By Jens on 01/04/2006 at 02:15 PM EST
... from the time, when Lotus still was Lotus Inc. and Domino was an Add-In to
the Notes-Server ....

Written on the mug is "Lotus Notes" and under it a black line in waveform.

When you put your coffee into the mug, the black line clears up and you see:
".... and you will never Exchange"

In fact the quote is in the not so famous quips and quotes database that Rocky
and I have been compiling since March, 1998. It was added from the Ruminations
List email on 29 March 1999 and was attributed in that email to Tom Singer

"I had a fortune cookie the other day and it said, Outlook not so good."

Of course my apocryphal expanded version is better:

"I had a fortune cookie the other day and it said, Outlook not so good but

Certainly it should have been addressed in the Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan administrations -- all of which were well aware of the implications of a pandemic. I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything. Not just killing people and breaking things, but ...... 
  3. 01/28/2020Copyright Troll WarningThere's a copyright troll firm that has automated reverse-image searches and goes around looking for any posted images that they can make a quick copyright claim on. This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
