Create Your Own O'Reilly Book Covers

Yesterday, I stumbled across the O'Reilly book cover maker web site and thought I'd have a go.
A long long time ago, in a land far far away (and before I joined Sun if you were wondering), I had a manager I did not get on with. I'm sure the feeling was reciprocated. When it came time for my yearly review, the draft copy contained the phrase, "does not suffer fools gladly". "Ah," I replied, "so you admit they are fools then?" I was glared at, but I did notice that the final version used a different wording.
When you are in a situation like that, I've always found it best to move on, but in tribute to that manager, I present my sample O'Reilly cover. Click on it to see a larger version. I would have liked to have made the title "Suffering Fools Gladly", but it wasn't smart enough to reduce the font size so it all still nicely fit.
Hopefully that manager has retired by now, and is no longer inflicting their managerial skills (or lack thereof) on poor suffering employees.
