Beam Him a Pink Slip, Scotty

A computer programmer was fired from his position after he admitted that he was using a state-owned server to process SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) data. Hilarious quote from the department's director:

"I understand his desire to search for intelligent life in outer space, because obviously he doesn't find it in the mirror in the morning. I think that people can be comfortable that security has beamed this man out of our building."


So I am wondering ... when ET phones home, will this guy be able to get a professional reference from him?
