hello all
there is one piece of wtf moment that I had I wanna share with you guys.
 Gavin, Nile, Nelson and I had to visit the SG finance office because of
bureaucracy (another story another time). So right next door to it is
the SG IT office and the door is wide open, as we walk by I notice there
is one random guy sitting in it. As nile and nelson are conversing with
finance people I go into the IT office to ask about installing OOo in
the free student printing lab, since you cant install anything in there
unlike AT labs and I cant print any of my odt. I walk in, the guy looks
up at me, "Hi, I am a student here and I was wondering if you can
install OpenOffice along with MS Office at the printing lab, because I
cant print any of my documents." He looks at me for about a second. With
a completely serious tone he says "OpenOffice is an open source software
and is therefore less secure than ms outlook." I stare at him, at this
point there are about a hundred thousand things I want to say to this
guy but I realize all of them would be utterly pointless, fail to stifle
couple of snickers. I walk out with him yelling something at my back. To
say that all of us had a good laugh is an understatement.
