If you read this and you work in EIN, then you should go straightaway to Jerf's page and click on the Amazon link on the side. Why? Because you've used the site that he made, on his own time and with absolutely no compensation, and you continue to use it without so much as a "thank you" to him. If it were up to me, you should give him a dollar for every letter you didn't write on your own, every coversheet you couldn't figure out on your own, every example you had to look at because you can't memorize your damn job. Retroactive, of course. If you ever got an award, it goes up to five bucks per. Ten if you think you deserve it. No, scratch that. One hundred per.
Jeff is not only my best friend, but one of the best people it has ever been my pleasure to know. The way he is treated by my former employer sickens and angers me, and I sincerely hope that he gets to get out and live the life he richly deserves before the place drains the life out of him. If he gets to live his life with the woman he loves, then that makes it infinitely more enjoyable and worthwhile.
