The marchFirst thing is so sad. I know two people who used to work there...and they are sad, yes indeedy!

How about classActionLinuxLawsuit.com

LNUX rose to to a meteoric 320 in its first day of trading, and closed Wednesday at 1.50, a whopping 99.5% drop in only a year. (It's up a few cents after yesterday's bull rally). They also have over a dozen class action lawsuits alleging securities fraud from their IPO, and lose tens millions of dollars per quarter. RHAT is in a similarly bad situation, but not as much an outright failure.

Heh heh.

After reading about HotJobs' layoffs, I'm thinking they should become NotJobs...

What's the story with that one?

Well, my one friend worked at the Chicago marchFirst, and my other friend was at the Milwaukee marchFirst. They both got laid off. That means....yes, folks, they are sad b/c they have no jobs.

I didn't know marchFirst was a company. I thought it might have something to do with people getting laid off this week but penalized as if it had been on March 1st. OK, that doesn't make sense but it's the best I had to go on.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
