Default Best of.... Westley

NOTE: THIS POST NO LONGER UPDATED AFTER JUNE 1, 2006. SEE SUMMARY POST #28.

OK, I had to look forever to find this link:

http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/actu...ad.php?t=31380

Which I think has some great advice about doing it yourself instead of asking your boss to do it for you (see post #6).

Since I'm not as organized as Claude with my links, so I am just posting here what I consider to be the best advice I've given. That way, when I am trying to find one of my really good prior posts, all I have to do is search for my college gf's sorority (Kappa Alpha Theta) and this thread will surely come up.

I plan on running "Best of DoctorNo" on the AO for a few days while I'm out of town next month.

Found it! You mean the one where he asks if they are doing the interview for fun, right?

Except for the part where I actually give useful advice in my sarcastic response, whereas the primary purpose of his post is usually to brag about how much he makes.

And, I am still trying to post something clever enough to make it in your sig line.
