[Article]-Microsoft Office Space: A SQL With Flair

Tom Liston follows up his immensely creative challenge, Netcat in the Hat, with this hilarious look at corporate life. Enjoy!!

Permanent Link: [Article]-Microsoft Office Space: A SQL With Flair

New Skillz Challenge!

Image


Hey, folks! It's challenge-time. Tom Liston whipped up this one based on his real-world adventures in the deepest, darkest cubicle jungles of the mid-west. The name? Microsoft Office Space. The game? Figure out how they plan to fool "The Man". I hope you enjoy this brief excursion into the mind of Tom Liston as much as I did.

As always, we'll award three prizes -- one for the best technical answer, one for the most creative answer that is technically correct, and one for a completely random entry selected using some quantum-derived formula (PETA says we can't used Schrodinger's Cat to pick the random winner, though). Actually, in the end, it's just a fancy coin toss. But still, have fun!



Please read Tom Liston's challenge, compose your answers, and e-mail them to skillz0407@ethicalhacker.net with the 'Subject: Skillz Submission' by May 21, 2007.  Tom will choose three winners by the end of May, who will receive an autographed copy of one of Tom and Ed's books.

Feel free to discuss the scenario in the forums but PLEASE do not post your answers.

You wouldn't want someone else winning your prize, would you?



Have fun and good luck,
Don

I was going to print this out so that I can review it at my leisure but the PDF and PRINT options appear to be broken.

Thanks,

Go forth and do good things,

OK. After doing some digging, I found that it was the code in the discussion add-on - that little cartoon balloon that links the article to the forum topic. So good news is that the print icon works. Bad news is that it broke the link to the thread. Hang in there. We'll get it all squared away.

Thanks,

Maybe it wasn't as easy as I thought, so I put it back to the way it was. I'll keep working.

Good catch. Fixed it, so they all should now read May 21, 2007 is the deadline for submission.
