I think it’s rather amusing. Shows that sometimes you don’t know what to make of some people.

I’ve known a cleaning woman at the University who dressed like a hostess and was treated accordingly to visitors. She looked very lady-like so I guess originally she wasn’t a cleaning woman but she had to take the job anyway.

To those who didn’t get it: It’s a creative pun about how whenever you get an e-mail from Recep, their signature says “Available To Help With Projects.” I’ve yet to figure out what kinds of projects this refers to, though =P

Bug Bash is a comic strip written and illustrated by Hans Bjordahl. Bug Bash is a comic strip about technology: managing technology, the business of technology. It's about project management and managing projects through the dull world of Rational Rose, use cases, and requirements. Functional requirements, user requirement, functional specifications, design specifications, call it what you want but it's still the bane of project managers. And when you're done with that, you can think about all the fun that comes with timelines, scheduling, estimates (PERT estimation anyone?) and resourcing until Gantt charts are coming out of your ears. Let's not forget the risk management in the software engineering life cycle. Maintaining the project is just as much fun, managing what was initially set out in requirements and trying to keep feature creep / scope creep in check with change management. If any of these words send nightmares to you, the project manager, then this site probably rings true with you. (Who Links Here?)
