Discussing my new job with Allan.

Allan : what kinds of things are you doing?

Kurt : basically they've been training me to manage patches. i manage patches for just short of 10,000 desktops across the state.

Allan : Wow Kurt, I didn't know they even had that many people in Oklahoma! ;)

Kurt : we don't - we've been doing selective breeding with our cattle to recognize words on-screen. it was an initiative started in 1998, and now captcha-defeation is our #1 export.

Yes, I'm aware that "defeation" isn't a word.
