    From /.

    "While technologies such as virtualization, multi-threading, and blade servers have made the data center leaner, those who work there are getting... well... not leaner. According to a new study by CareerBuilder.com, 34 percent of IT workers say they have gained more than ten pounds in their current jobs. And 16 percent say they've gained at least twice that. The culprits seem to be the stressful-yet-sedentary nature of tech work coupled with our famously poor eating habits. According to the survey, some 41 percent of IT workers eat out for lunch twice or more per week, making portion and calorie control difficult. Eleven percent buy their lunch out of a vending machine at least once a week."

    I must admit, on another forum I am on they often debate height (vs various other things from weight and shoe size to the supposedly ever on-going debated about mans "tool" ) Most people on the other forum are below 6ft and shreek and moan when we come on and say were 6ft+ but is it the IT guys are normally below 6ft I wonder?

    Ahem...Those of you who are tall and thin - are you all very young?
    Because if you are - the weight will catch up with you eventually....


    And I really think we *should* stop short of comparing the size of other parts of the anatomy!
