At work, I still use (the default) Netscape Communicator 4.7 for email. When you open the email client, it shows a webpage with search and some news headlines in the message preview window. A co-worker alerted me to the fact that the news headlines haven’t been updated for about 6 months (I couldn’t figure out exactly how long). The last headlines (and these have been showing for months) are:

US News: Bush to Sign Partial Birth Abortion Ban
Sports: Judge Rejects Evidence in Olympic Trial
Entertainment: Keith Keeping CMA Awards in Perspective

What happened? They might have had a round of layoffs. I imagine the manager asking: “Does anyone know what that guy in the corner does?” Nobody knows. He gets fired, and the news headlines never get updated again. Nobody notices. If there’s a lesson in there somewhere, I haven’t found it.
