When I was canned by my company, which was acquired
by a Wash. state company, I received a list of folks
positions, ages, and whether canned or not.
>From this, and little additional constraint, I was able
to reverse-engineer (aka, data-mine) the ages of all of my
colleages. They were quite surprised when, at a
group lunch therafter, I was able to peg their ages
Amusing privacy unintended-consequence of Wash state's
So much for "privacy" as protected by the state.
Impeach or frag.
