Thank heavens I am self employed.

Firefighters and astronauts I understand, but a data entry clerk?

Gimme a break.

Great........microsoft enters the age of BRM (boner rights management).

Have a nice day.

Big brother with a M$ twist. The twist? Since it is a well known fact that M$ applications, as well as the OS they are tied to, are prone to lock-up conditions, a built-in reboot mechanism is a primary inclusion of the patent application. This is good news as it will call into question chain of custody in a law suit. If no reboots are present in the data collection; it implies that the data had been tampered with, or that data was collected using a Linux OS. :lol:
