An unemployed computer unprofessional, she was once nearly fired for using the word "specious" in a counter-argument about C include files. Other professional highlights include fighting a bad review caused by a false accusation that she was writing poetry at work, by taking up poetry writing at work, so that she could then give it up (now doggerel-free since 2000, after writing a generator to do it automatically); and being asked by professional colleagues if she really was a witch, based on a truly inane comment made in a Usenet posting on an unrelated topic that somehow made it into .sig files in one or two places.
