Thanks all for this light hearted and entertaining discussion. I have 
not enjoyed a thread (of which there are not many) on this list as much 
for a while.

For me it is interesting to see how much agreement there is actually on 
the list around these issues. I propose a survey. What are the 10 or 5 
or thereabouts most positive aspects that you would want in a job, and 
what are the 5 most negative?  Though to put it in that format might 
suck all the juice out of this discussion.

For me, I have been enjoying the spirited discussion, and I thank you 
all for sharing some of the more personal aspects of our dry geekish work.

Stefano, perhaps we need a thumbs up icon, like Facebooks "I like it". 
Though it seems that my one liner was picked up by a number of 
respondants, interestingly enough.
