On my white board at work I’ve placed the following “New C&A Date = sqrt -1” in reference to the start of our security scans constantly changing. It started in October and has moved through November, December, back to November, January, February, etc etc. Very frustrating. So I thought the formula for an imaginary number was pretty fitting.

The danger of using a mathematical formula on my white board is that I work with a bunch of egg heads. I should have learned this lesson when I worked at the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center. But, I’m a slow learner it seems.

Anyhow, last night my formula was changed from
New C&A Date = “sqrt -1”
New C&A Date = “a+bi (because it’s complex)”
