I run a research group, yes...but I love me some Gorilla tape at home.  

 

 

You desperately need some digital signage in that lab!!

 

Probably some interactive whiteboards too, and hell, a video wall while we're at it. 

 

Ill have my people call your people.

No I don't!  (on the signage)

 

Have the interactive whiteboards because stuff like that are throw-ins from Dell/M$/Samsung when you buy new gear from them yearly.  Still playing with my eBeam for presentations/lectures.  A video wall in my office may be the next logical step up from my current monitor mount setup.

I never have much use for tape. I've had the same roll of duct tape since 2007

Tape, Kragl...it's all good when I have to put back together that which I got mad at and broke in the first place.

I'm having a "discussion" my boss about one of my resellers. He says he was told they were 100% commission and I told him they were base plus commission. He is fighting this because several people like our comp plan is meh and would use this as leverage.

I told him that.100% commission sales people don't get 8-10% off net when margins are between 30-40%. Typical quota is between $1-1.5M.

Especially as good as these guys are we are talking to

Jean shorts = liberating and rebel

Fanny pack = If I need some emergency deodorant or chap stick or my ViC card, boom, I got it right there all in a handy carrying belt thing.

What's wrong with that?
