[Some humour for you all]


A couple of us in the office have officially named Fridays "Fiber Cut
Fridays."

Two weeks ago, we took bets on what time the Canadian fiber cut would be at
(or no cut at all).  There was no cut.  The 10 people who betted "no cut"
received $3 each.

Last Friday, we didn't take bets, and a cut occurred. :)

Start your own local pool !  More money than the stock market !  :)
