Now THAT’S what we call a rounding error!

The company’s new time-clock system goes live, and this IT pilot fish has finally figured out exactly how it works — and is not happy.

“We were originally told the managers would adjust our clock in/out times if we deviated from our schedule,” says fish. “Oh, how I wish that was now the case.

“The way the system works is that your clock in/out time is rounded from seven minutes before or after your scheduled time to arrive or leave. Say I clock out at 4:37 p.m. — it’s rounded to 4:30.

“However, if I clock out at 4:38, then I register as getting eight minutes of comp time. Only we’re not allowed to earn comp time, so before the end of the pay period I have to clock out eight minutes early. If I happen to clock out nine minutes early, then I’m one minute under time and have to use leave to make up for it.

Integrated into Microsoft Internet Explorer® for Windows®, netXtract delivers a breakthrough approach to document navigation and relevance determination. netXtract automatically indexes each document displayed by IE, extracts all contexts for any key term you choose and allows you to “jump” directly to the context you find most interesting. netXtract also allows you to define custom filters, or “dictionaries” of related terms by area of study, interest or business focus (e.g. medical, legal, financial, business intelligence, etc.). Build your own personal knowledge base Once you’ve found relevant information, you decide exactly what to save for future reference. netXtract allows you to build a local personal Knowledge Base of any text you select from documents displayed in Internet Explorer. You can also save to your Knowledge Base from any other application (MS Word, email client, etc.). netXtract’s Knowledge Base (KB) Manager allows you to categorize, maintain and query your Knowledge Base. Selecting any entry saved from a web document returns you directly to that point in the original online document.
