Geek Rigs 5,000 Of Employer's Computers To Search For Space Aliens

By Robert Paul Reyes

Access to the Internet is a great asset in the workplace, but it can also pose too much of a temptation for frivolous pursuits. Many employees have been suspended or fired for viewing p*rnography or gambling online.

A computer administrator for a school district in Arizona has been fired not for accessing p*rn sites, but for using school computers to search for UFO`s.

"A computer administrator with the Higley Unified School District in Gilbert, Arizona has resigned during an investigation into suspicious activity.

He`s accused of wasting district resources, totaling more than a million dollars to search for UFOs.

The school district was unknowingly the largest contributor to the `SETI` program, the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence."

Brad Niesluchowski installed software to search for UFO`s on more than 5,000 school computers, but even if he rigged a million computers his search is destined for failure. Dude, get real! All you need is one computer to search for Carrie Prejean nude pics, and your search will be successful.
