MS employee, bored, fixes bugs

Author: JT Smith

From the humor site Segfault.org: In a bold move Wednesday afternoon, Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) employee Donald Rutherford, fixed approximately 3 bugs in the Microsoft application Outlook Express. "Boredom" was the reason cited for this unusual display of programming. "It was about 1:30 in the afternoon, and I had just gotten back from lunch." Rutherford explained. "My office was already clean, my hard drive was defragged, and I still had a half hour before I got off work for the weekend, so I just started programming."
