Putting the Orr In

4:30 PM -- Want to get a glimpse of the dark side of telecom in both boom and bust? Well check out the "confessions" of Aruba Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: ARUN) CEO Dominic Orr in Fortune magazine.

In a sobering feature, Orr describes how stress nearly wrecked his personal and professional life and how he struggled to find a balance. One scene finds Orr calling David Callisch nearly in tears because he only managed to sell startup Alteon for nearly 8 billion dollars!

Aruba, which links to the article off its site, has always had some colorful people at the helm, although evidently some may have known how to kick back easier than others. Witness Ex-CEO Don LeBeau's passion for fancy stereo gear for instance. (See Something for the Weekend, Sir?)
