That's a good point.

But, if those who interview for the job thumb their nose at Ada and go
elsewhere, what's a company to do?

I don't know that this is entirely the case, but that it is a strong
factor seems entirely plausible.

Hey Novell, is it too much to ask that when I log out of NetWare, it
should ACTUALLY record that I've logged out, so that it doesn't have to
scramble around the house laboriously when I try to log back in, forcing
me to ring the door bell 20 times??????
