Title: RRRRRAAAAARRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!
Post by: Junkyard on July 24, 2007, 02:53:08 PM
Anything really ticking you off right now? Wanna vent, but have no relevent thread in which to do so?
Here you go.

I was online, looking for classes for next semester this morning, with the aim of adding two more to the ones I already chose yesterday. My aim was four classes. After an hour or so, I find them, and select them. 4 classes, all going towards my major! Yay!
Until I checked back this afternoon. Then I found out that I forgot to actually enroll in them, and in the two hours I was away, the classes got filled.
Back to square one, and after two hours, I have only been able to to find 1 more class that goes towards my major.
RRRRRAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!
Of course, I know that is both my fault for waiting so long to do this, and for not finalizing my selections the first time. However, knowing it's my fault doesn't make my insane rage go away, and I can only aim it at myself. I'm pretty sure that at the worst point, my body temp was at 103 or more.

It's not so bad, though- I can just find a filler class, and I'll be all set.


Ahhhhh.... that was helpful.
Your turn.

I hate machines! I'm really wanting to rage against them. Maybe with some music or something. I'm gonna have to look into it.

Fortunately, I already had 300 at the top of my cue, a friend of mine told me this movie was pretty bad. Naturally, when I hear a movie is bad my  sadomasochistic side makes me want to watch it as soon as possible. I will join you in raging against the Netflix machine though, because I wanted to check on what movies I was getting today. Those bastard machines.

  Here's mine:

  I hate our swamp cooler!!!!

  Our swamp cooler is 4 years old and nearly EVERY FREAKING SUMMER we've had it, it's found reasons to break down (usually multiple times). It's been essentially rebuilt with new parts over these same years, and it still breaks down every summer. I want to go up on our roof and knock it to the ground with a baseball bat, and then finish the job with a chainsaw. I want it off our roof and I want a NORMAL flippin' central AC unit installed. Swamp coolers SUCK ASS!!!!!!!!!! If anybody on these forums ever moves to a desert state like NM, don't get a swamp cooler!!! Don't believe any crap anyone tells you about needing humidity to cool air and what not. Regular AC units work just fine out here. New houses are built with these crappy things on them because they're cheap, not because they work (ie: KEEP working). Swamp coolers only chill the air for about 20 degrees anyhow, so if it's 108 degrees outside, it's going to be 88 degrees inside. They suck.

  Of course, I'm saying all this after being told today by Pak that he's had to call in the repair guys AGAIN for this stupid machine. I'm beyond livid at this point over this dumbass machine.

I got a pair of Vans a few months ago for cheap and they suck ass. I had intended them to replace the well-worn Sneauxs that I've had for over a year, but I'm back wearing the old ones. I like skate shoes, but I'm looking for all-terrain running-type shoes right now. New Balances are great, but every store I go to has mysteriously run out of my size.  :grr:

again did you all not read this thread or all you all just so afraid to offend someone in your daily circle jerk you won't say the obvious truth that i participated in this thread when someone else time and time again mind you, insulted me first.

look,  I have read all this thread. you posted a picture, and someone made a joke.  You get all offended and start in on your name calling.  The fact that you've been a member of the forum for 15 days, and you've managed to piss off almost everybody on the forum speaks volumes about you.  You take offense to any disagreement.  And instead of rationally defending your opinion, you start calling people names, and generally acting like an asshole.  And then you wonder why people on the forum didnt welcome you with open arms.  Calling people douche and hypocrites after you've said they suck because they dint like movie a or TV show b isn't the height of wit.  The only reason ChoasfromOrder made the joke is because you've already cultivated the demeanor and reputation as troll or someone who obviously wont contribute to the discussion.  If you've spent half the time  you've spent at this message board maturely participating in discussions, rather than coming up with pithy comebacks and put downs, then maybe people wouldn't be as quick as dismiss whatever you have to say.  But he point is moot, because right after you read this, you'll probably make some snide comment like: " Pot callling the kettle black", or "I'm cool, you suck!"  While you might think so, i think the rest of the people here don't.

no i didn't get offended. he said i had a crush on a dude who i do have a crush on. hence whats next call me mexican? i was just stating calling someone gay is never funny really. especially when its true. :)

now heres the wonderful thing to what you and everyone else has said. if you have read every post i've made you have to say without a shadow of a doubt that all those posts have been nothing but negative insults at specific people in this forum.

bottom line here people.

i was called a troll by everyone before i insulted any specific person in this forum. hell more often than not i've been targeted by more combined people on more occasions than i've gone after one specific individual.

not to mention your justification for chaosfromorder's "joke" makes no sense at all.

also please tell me when i've asked anyone to welcome me with open arms.

No, all your posts being nothing but negative insults at specific people in this forum. See, we're a pretty close-knit community here and most of us like each other. When you walk into a close-knit group of people and start saying negative things about them, after only taking 2 weeks to get to know us, most people won't appreciate it. You've been shifting back and forth between hostile and defensive for a couple weeks now, and I think we'd all like to see something productive come out of your posts. So far you've mostly been baselessly insulting things without defending them, insulting the people who expect more of an arguement, and then defending yourself for insulting those people while insulting them some more. Try posting something constructive. Post an opinion and then back it up! Contribute to a discussion instead of trying to disrupt it. It's not hard.

As TorgosPizza so eloquently stated in another thread is that you don't have to "win" the discussion.  Topic threads aren't about gaining the upperhand, or having the last word.  All they are are discussion, nothing more.  For instance, this discussion here.  You see, I'm not trying to "win" this thread.  I'm not even trying to pick on you.  I'm simply trying to tell you why people are singling you out.  Threads are started, people discuss the points and thats it.  but it pointless to try to reason with you.  you simply take any thread,  and center the attention on you.

goog,

Let me see if I can clear this up a little bit. In all seriousness, and with all joking aside (rare for me, I know, so please bear with...).

The reason I posted the joke in the RARGH thread was because you posted 3 times in a row in the thread about Kennedy (and yes, I get the joke with his name, because that is what he does - v. funny), but you kept posting it after the 1 repeat that he does, and you had that pointy wang picture - it was too hard to resist. I'm only human! Also, we all were having a nice discussion in the fan fiction topic in the other forum, which is kind of what inspired the joke, which I felt was topical. I was going for pointlessly ludicrous, and did not think that anyone would think I was ACTUALLY suggesting that you were gay (not that there's anything wrong with that). See, ranting about the WWE is fine, that is the point of this thread - but repeatedly posted the same thing is what makes it go beyond thread contribution and turn into just an annoying distraction, which is what most of the people get upset about with you.

Also, you mentioned your post of your cat in the AWWWW thread - you will notice that nobody insulted you or said anything negative at all to you in that thread when you posted your picture - because you were actually contributing, and not doing anything that people considered to be annoying.

And the reason people got upset with you in the Anime thread is because you did not defend your opinion, you just said that Akira sucked, and even when someone posted a nice long explanation of why they liked it, you just posted again and, essentially, said it sucked and they were stupid for liking it (and yes, I know you did not actually say that in words, so please don't take this one point and try to overturn everything else I have said because of this one single item - the insult was implied, not specific).

Overall, the posts that you have made in this community have been negative, ill-tempered, and full of non-specific (and occasionally specific) insulting attitudes and comments. Yes, on occasion you try to contribute something, but usually you are insulting, making off-handed rude comments and calling people things that are not insults, but in a way that makes you sound insulting and rude. You have to understand that a great deal of the people here know each other very well, and think highly of each other. Coming in and making random snide comments at topics or people causes a xenophobic reaction.

I am not really a member of this community's family either (I've only been here for a little over 2 months), but I like to think that I am vaguely well-thought of, when people remember who I am, and that I am on my way towards acceptance (for whatever acceptance by people I have never met and don't even know what they look like is worth).

And for what it is worth, I am sorry that I egged you on in some of the topics - you were annoying, I was bored, and it was kind of funny to see what I considered to be predictable responses. But that kind of behaviour detracts from the subject at hand, and only contributes to the hijacking of peoples' serious (or not serious) conversation topics, so I'm not going to do it anymore.

And if I offended you in some real sense by any of the things I said, I apologize. People who are constantly negative just get under my skin, because the internet (and in a lot of cases, the world) is such a shitty place as it is, the last thing we need is people being assholes to each other just because it's anonymous. We would all be better off if we treated everyone with respect - but that only really works if everyone participates, and you really can't blame people for lashing out when you waltz in here, an inexperienced kid in his early 20s, and start acting snide and superior from the get-go.

In any case, I won't be posting any more negative comments about you, and I hope that we can all get back to the various subjects at hand, and just enjoy ourselves as a group - which is kind of the point. :)

And give unsaid person a big hug....unless they would be offended by my hug...in which case I will give them some form of non-contact emotional encouragement.

me posting a pic of my cat in the awww thread.

me talking about what was the latest band i saw in the music sub forum.

me doing the games in the board-games subforum.

me going back and forth with someone on why they liked akira and why i didn't like it.(only person that answered why they liked akira as apparently nobody else could)

me mentioning some of my favorite graphic novels in the book subforum....

me saying i want to watch the golden compass movie....

etc....

thats being negative towards everyone?

100% Right On!
I have had a Great Time being here since becoming a member.
I have purposely avoided you goog simply to avoid any 'accidental insults' I might post, and then the 'verbal' onslaught starts being aimed in my direction.
The few 'Positive' posts you've made don't make up for the mostly Negative majority ones posted by you throughout the forum.
Many of us feel like we're 'walking on egg shells' in trying to respond (if we want) to your posts without angering you.
If our reasoning only adds to your rage goog, I'll just ignore you, and so will others.
As Chaos said, There is Enough Negativity in the world. We don't need it brought here too! 
We JOKE Here. It's not meant to be Seriously Taken as an Insult directed at anyone!
Bottom Line: We've all tried to reason with you. The Admins have now taken notice to you. Nuf Said!

Here's something that actually makes me angry. While I frown on talking politics on forums I can't help but share some video clips of my Attorney General trying to bullsh*t his way out of explaining anything. While I'm sure there are quite a few members that don't care for Keith Olbermann I would at least ask you watch the first part of the video with the clips of Attorney General Gonzales making an ass of himself. If you will notice the only times he doesn't have his foot in his mouth are when he's taking one foot out to put the other one in. Rather than try to explain anything he would have been better off presenting a dog chasing it's tail at the hearing.

He's even a lousy lawyer....I mean, they get paid to lie convincingly.  He can't even do THAT!!!

(love me some Keith Olberman!!!)

I'm almost to the point where I see what the "Survivalists" who arm themselves against the Goverment were talking about.

Minor pet peeve....e-mails like this from Amazon:

"We've noticed that customers who have purchased or rated The Complete Thin Man Collection (The Thin Man / After the Thin Man / Another Thin Man / Shadow of the Thin Man / The Thin Man Goes Home / Song of the Thin Man) or other films in the ( P ) > Powell, William category have also purchased The Thin Man Goes Home on DVD. For this reason, you might like to know that The Thin Man Goes Home will be released on August 7, 2007.  You can pre-order yours by following the link below."

I've already told them that I own it in a set, so they send me an e-mail that it's coming out....    ::)

I get similar ones because I bought the complete journals of Casanova. Now everything Italian, both in English and in Italian that comes out is reccomended to me. But never anything on the subject of Libertinism or general decadence, go figure.

Note to Amazon, just because I like one randy genius doesn't mean I care about some tedious Novel that I'd never read if the author was English.

ahem.

i posted three times?

i posted once. then somebody asked who i meant and i said it again. then yes because he does the name twice i posted it again with the pic. pointy wang and all. *swoon*  ::) see the fact that posting the same thing "three times" is considered annoying and thread hijacking all of a sudden is just petty. i mean you went for a joke sure. i said why it wasn't funny. i'm sorry have people not done that to me? again we come back to the hypocracy this forum loves to show. me talking to you, others throwing in their two cents, me explaining why they are wrong and believe you me yes they are.

also they didn't insult me in that one thread. notice i also didn't go in that thread saying oh man that is one ugly dog, blablalbla.

now the anime thread. i made mention i kept asking people why they liked that, and again....AGAIN....only one person explained why they liked that. then i responded back why i didn't like that. it seems majority of people like without knowing why they like something and i should just assume thats the explanation behind it?

also for the most part i do contribute. is it my fault that because someone has a difference of opinion than the majority of you, you guys feel personally attacked? see thats whats wrong with the world. you all should focus on a bigger question. why do you all like such shitty things? (haha! joke. hope you guys get it. its an oldy but a goody.) also this is the first topic i remember you in. as your one post and my reply started a lot of people coming in. speaking of!

i know what forums are friend. been apart of a-many in my "inexperienced" days. lovely word by the way. in forums you always have your regs how ban together. its why people join forums for the most part. to make friends. i join forums to share opinions. if i make friends......great. if i don't, well i already have friends. hard to believe i know, but the world isn't filled with "lets be nice, except to those who i think are mean" people. some of us can laugh everything off. some of us can argue and brush off what might seem like insults. again i haven't personally gone after anyone. *cough*least i can say that*cough*.

you all do what you want though. report and the like. have the mod's say i can't do this though clearly others can, and this "inexperienced" kid will keep on doing nothing wrong.

Ok Goog, I'm essentially a newbie here as well so I'm not one of those "regulars who ban up against others".  Essentially the thing that turns people off to you is the way you phrase things.  Of course you can/should have a different opinion on topics but what people dislike is how you discuss your opinions.  Now i'm not saying you've never posted a nice polite post, however you'll have to agree that many of your posts consist of attempting to belittle an argument you started.  When you go about insulting people you don't become very popular (well at least not in a way you'd want).  Go ahead and share you're opinions but there is no need to swear at people or call them drunktared (a new one for me).  Remember that everybody has a different opinion and even if you disagree with it, you should, at least, respect it.  You have good opinions and if you would merely use civil discourse you could become a valued member.  I'm not attacking you or trying to start another arguement but merely sharing some observations i've noticed.  And I know you feel like you're being unfairly judged as you're trying to defend yourself in this thread, but what happened earlier in this thread was merely a catalyst for an already needed discussion of your conduct.  Just remember that we're all a community here and everyone deserves respect.  We will all give it to you if you can give it to us.

again we come back to the hypocracy this forum loves to show. me talking to you, others throwing in their two cents, me explaining why they are wrong and believe you me yes they are.

Are they wrong? Or are their opinions just different? That's the issue at hand here. If you are upset because of one comment about a pointy wang, I am sorry. But that doesn't mean you should go shit on everyone else's opinions and likes, just because you are so sure they are wrong. Opinions are like assholes, everyone's got one.

we're all assholes, friend. some of us are just good at it. :)

If you're aiming for "top asshole" of this forum, I still think you've got a long way to go. Not saying you should try harder. But I do understand where you're coming from. We are all friends here, and I think some are more sensitive to having their opinions trashed rather than having a spirited debate about things. It is possible, even here (despite any contrary beliefs you may have at the moment).

So, yeah. How about starting back before we all took the train to Crazy Town?

If it makes you feel better, the WWE makes me angry too. The storylines can be funny at times, but I think what makes me even angrier, are the fans who think it's all real. Although I'm torn between being angry and sad about that.

again we come back to the hypocracy this forum loves to show. me talking to you, others throwing in their two cents, me explaining why they are wrong and believe you me yes they are.

Are they wrong? Or are their opinions just different? That's the issue at hand here. If you are upset because of one comment about a pointy wang, I am sorry. But that doesn't mean you should go shit on everyone else's opinions and likes, just because you are so sure they are wrong. Opinions are like assholes, everyone's got one.

Quote
we're all assholes, friend. some of us are just good at it. :)

If you're aiming for "top asshole" of this forum, I still think you've got a long way to go. Not saying you should try harder. But I do understand where you're coming from. We are all friends here, and I think some are more sensitive to having their opinions trashed rather than having a spirited debate about things. It is possible, even here (despite any contrary beliefs you may have at the moment).

So, yeah. How about starting back before we all took the train to Crazy Town?

If it makes you feel better, the WWE makes me angry too. The storylines can be funny at times, but I think what makes me even angrier, are the fans who think it's all real. Although I'm torn between being angry and sad about that.

i was just saying the people in this thread were wrong for going at me when clearly i did nothing to start or draw attention towards me. but yeah i'm just angry with the wwe cause vince doesn't give a fuck about anyone anymore.

oh and i don't watch any sports.

No way, I love cricket.  Especially as England has a team that doesn't suck at the moment.  It's a pity the shitty summer kept India in the match in the first test.  One wicket left with almost 4 hours to play, and yet bad light and rain saves 'em.  Lucky bastards.

I know guys who watch football even though they hate it, just so they can say, truthfully, "Yeah, I watch football."  So sad.  *shakes head*

Though I hate most sports, I will claim an affinity for what is arguably the most boring (popular) sport currently in existence: baseball.  Though only because I'm a Chicago Cubs fan, which I inherited from my mother.  In another thirty years, I should have inherited the other curses from her side of the family: cancer and diabetes.

You're a GEEK. A sports geek, but a geek nonetheless. "It's not the same," he said. Football is important." WHAT? "It's a multibillion dollar industry." Revolving around grown men getting paid exorbitant salaries to play a game. You just paid over 100 dollars for tickets to go hang out with a bunch of violently drunk Philadelphians wearing green clown wigs, and you call me childish for reading comics?

And I'm not talking about the ones who are over 15 and yet are there with their mothers because she wouldn't let them come by themselves...there or anywhere else.  You want to take the mothers out into the hallway, smack them around and scream at them, "What kind of life do you think this kid is going to have after you're dead?  Or are you so freaking selfish that you don't care that having him under your thumb all those years just so you won't have to be alone is going to ruin his chances for a normal life and relationship...."   Those guys you feel sympathy for.

Why yes, as a matter of fact, there is something ticking me off right now: Sprint. The Cel Phone Company.

I used to have an account with them, but changed over to my parents' plan on TMobile. I was speaking with a Sprint representative to cancel the account, and she ASSURED me I was COMPLETELY up to date on my payments, and owed them NO MORE MONEY. However, I later received a bill for about $50, the normal cost for my monthly service. I called them up again, explaining that the last person I talked to ASSURED me I was COMPLETELY up to date, and owed NO MORE MONEY, so then the Sprint rep says ok, you can DISREGARD that bill. But now, Sprint says I owe them money for that last bill, and they have since added late fee after late fee, until now the bill is over $200!!! And they have also sent the bill to a collection agency. So now, I tell them over and over again my side of the story, and they say I still owe them money.

   On the topic of cellphones, I have a classic complaint:

   When I'm checking in a patient, why must they suddenly terminate the conversation they're having with me in person so they can gab with someone on the phone???!!! I don't know where manners went, but as far as I know, the person you're actually face-to-face with takes priority over the person who's on the phone. Moreover if the person you're face-to-face with has their finger on the pulse of your health insurance and one little slip of the finger will file the charges to the wrong department.

  Actually, they catch it all eventually. My service was free under Pak's employment discount plan thingy. Without notifying us (naturally), my plan got suspended some time after Pak got his new job.

You guys are talking small-time idiocy.  I'm in Nebraska!  When the Cornhuskers won the NCAA title in 95, they tore down the goalposts at the University of Nebraska.....at Kearney.  The Cornhuskers are from Lincoln, NE.  My college fees went for repairing the goalposts.

Well, you know what the "N" on Nebraska's helmets stand for, right? "Nowledge."

Yeah we get to keep the discount, but the special freebee plan gets swapped for a SERO Discount plan thing. If you didn't have the special employee plan, you're probably OK :^)

And now for something completely different.

I'm going to Cape Cod in a couple of days.  From the 29th until the 5th, I will be kicking back on the beach, being merry and bright and getting a ridiculous amount of sunburn.  The day before that, I'm going to a concert.  It's going to be so very awesome.

All of that is assuming my wisdom teeth aren't complete bitches in the next few days.  I've been referred by my dentist to see an oral surgeon to have these babies removed.  I knew that I always had impeccable timing when it comes to screwing things up, but good God, this just sucks, ya?

Curse you, wisdom teeth!!

I received a letter from my employer, the United States Postal Service, that I owe them $229.84 because they over paid me accidentally.
Letter begins:

It has been determined you are indebted to the United States Postal Service in the amount of $229.84.  This will serve to notify you of the USPS's intention to collect from you the sum of $229.84.  Collection of this debt is being pursued based on the information from the .......  Accounting Service Center.  The invoice specifically states:  This invoice collects for Overpayment in Week 2, Pay Period 12/2007 on Route .......  Your were(their words) paid 32.21 hours, you should have been paid 24.19 hours.  You lost 8.02 ours(again their word) at Overtime rate.

If you would like, you map repay the debt in a lump sum, agree to (blah, blah, blah)....  You may ask for copies of postal records relating to this debt.  Instructions for exercising these options art attached.

I choose option 2, which is:

Requests for Records.  If you wold like copies of all postal records relating to your debt, you must make a written request........  for the records within 10 (ten) calendar days from your receipt of the notice of the Postal Service's determination of a debt.  You will be provided with copies of the records within 5 calendar days of the the date your request is received.

Here is my letter back (I haven't mailed it yet):

Ref:  Letter of Debt Determination

Dear Mrs.      :

I’ll take Option #2 for $229.84 Alex.  What is, I would like copies of all postal records relating to “my debt”?

What is it with these people who have to use their cellphones like walkie-talkies in public places (like stores) with the volume full blast?

And it seems like 99.9% of these same people (on both sides of the conversation) has never finished a sentence without at least two f-bombs in it.

Like the whole world wants to hear their business.   :grr:

I used to work at Best Buy where I sold Boost Mobile pre-paid phones, and I almost wanted to tell people, "Okay, listen, I'll sell you this phone, but if I ever see you in here again and you pull out this phone even ONCE to 'chirp' one of your stupid friends and talk LOUDLY about NOTHING, I swear on all that is good, pure and holy, I will flog you to within an inch of your life with a coax cable, have you drawn and quartered, roll you in salt and feed you to the circus pony we've got in the parking lot to promote whatever stupid 'event' we've got going on this week.  DON'T F*CKING TEMPT ME."

And people wonder why I don't work retail anymore.  ;D

Reminds me of the woman in line in front of me at the post office with one of those earpieces....got her turn at the counter, gave her Priority Mail stuff to the guy, paid and all.....never once stopped her conversation with the person on the phone to even acknowledge the guy waiting on her.

And people wonder why I stick with my pay-as-you-go Virgin Mobile account....   :)

*laughs*  Shhhh!  Don't tell anyone, but not only did I almost never push warranty plans, I used to talk people out of buying iPod Minis, too.

Part of me (a SMALL part of me) wishes I still worked for BB so I could convince people not to buy iPhones.  Not that people who have to compensate for their small little lives by owning the latest and greatest of everything would give a crap, but Apple is f*cking notorious for letting their unwitting customers beta-test their new products You couldn't GIVE me an iPhone at this point.

Not being able to run 3rd party software was the thing that stopped me from caring.  You can't even write an applescript for it.  The software on my phone is the only thing I hate about it, so the only reason to get an iPhone would be the software for me.

Yeah - Virgin Mobile is on the old billing software (the one that Sprint's jackass software developers DIDN'T write). Everyone else (including Nextel now) is on Sprint's in-house billing software - which stinks on hot ice. And the NEW new billing platform they are shifting everyone over to now is even worse. I don't even like to think about it. Thank Golf that I'm not affiliated with the service department anymore. ;)

My "New Every Two" from Verizon comes up in December... right around when all the cool NEW phones come out for Xmas.

My plan is to get some kind of SmartPhone that runs on Windows Mobile, and includes GPS features. Then it'll pretty much be the PC version of an iPhone, except you'll be able to run your own apps on it. So if I'm home in NY and the website starts getting really slow, I can just login to PuTTy on my phone and reset the server from there - all without having to touch a computer.

The future is now!

My plan is to get some kind of SmartPhone that runs on Windows Mobile, and includes GPS features. Then it'll pretty much be the PC version of an iPhone, except you'll be able to run your own apps on it. So if I'm home in NY and the website starts getting really slow, I can just login to PuTTy on my phone and reset the server from there - all without having to touch a computer.

The future is now!

My renewal is coming, too! 
I get overwhelmed when looking at cellphones, though, because I look at features I don't even use.  I got a digital camera last year, and when it came time to upgrade the phones, I got one with a camera.  I ended up never using the camera phone one, or any of the internet features, so I went back to my older, less-amazing phone.  But I love it - even if it's very simple.

The best phone I ever had was so basic (by today's standards, anyway).  It was a stick phone (as opposed to a flip phone), no camera, no internet, no nothin', but sturdy as an ox and great reception (which I realize has a lot to do with the service provider, but I've had phones that got crappy reception in areas loaded with towers).  I actually dropped this bad boy in a puddle in the middle of the night (in the middle of winter) and came out the next morning to find it underneath a layer of ice still lit up.  I dried it out and it still worked perfectly.  It was a bad-ass muhf*ckin' piece of equipment.

I lent to to a now-ex-boyfriend once, though, and it somehow wound up underneath the tires of a moving car.  I still miss that phone.  I do not, however, miss the ex-boyfriend.

Gigantic forum signatures is one of those things that really, REALLY bug me. Especially on, for example, a gaming forum, where the person has made a 700K jpg (because he's too stupid to make it a gif), with his character's picture, and stats, and a dumbass game-related post from a moderator that he is angry about because it was not delivered as promised built right into the image, that take up 3 times more room than any post he has ever made... and roughly 5 out of every 15 posts on a page are his.

It makes me very happy that my ad filtering software lets me block specific images. It makes forums like that marginally less annoying. :)

I'm watching the asteroid scene from Empire Strikes Back....which has been out since 1980....practically everyone has seen it....and a good number of us have seen it several times....

So it gets to the point where Han is running back into the cabin of the Falcon and Leia tells him, "Asteroids."

To which Han says (altogether now....), "I know."

What does the closed caption say?  "Oh, no."

Has closed captioning been farmed out to another planet where English is their third language and they're all seeing these movies for the first, freaking time?!?!?!?   Jeez!    :angry:

I adore Star Wars, don't get me wrong, but I think it was one of those projects that surfaced at the exact right time with the exact right actors, crew, etc (I'm talking the first film, especially, the first three films, generally).  I don't know that it would have been accepted otherwise.  I KNOW it wouldn't have been accepted if Phantom Menace had been released first.

Anyway, you go Harrison Ford.  Now stop making stupid "thrillers" so I can feel good about loving you again.

Probably replaced by yet another "Yes Man" who tells Lucas even his farts smell like Chanel No. 5.

Not to be argumentative (that would be a first) but - who says that Ford didn't say "i know" then?  Just because it might have "Oh, no" in a published version of the script, that doesn't mean that that's what was said in the movie.

And as far a Harrison Ford making too many "thrillers".....first Hollywood would have to stop making too many "thrillers".  And the general public would have to start going to movies like Regarding Henry so that they make money.   Besides, movies like Working Girl don't grow on trees....

Reminds me....the clip of the first episode of 'The X-Files" in Japanese on the DVD set.  I started watching it and immediately thought to myself..."Why?".  I mean, it was cute for a little while but it just went on and on....taking up space on the disc.  Another "Special Feature" you watch once and never watch again.

Here's a different annoyance. This might just be with DTE Energy rather than all electrical companies.

Ok they have two ads one for the summer and one for the winter but the message is essentially the same. "Want to save money on your Heating/Electrical bill? Simply don't use you heat/AC as much"

Genius! Why didn't I think of that, if I don't want to pay so much I simply shouldn't use so much, oh wait I did think of that. So any advice on how to stay warm otherwise and not need to have the heat turned up so much is the bitter cold of a Michigan Midwinter?

"Nope, just keep it cold in the house and we won't charge you as much"

Thanks lots of help.

Now I grew up watching lots of shows and reading books about insulating the house etc. so it's not like I'm relying on DTE to tell me how to reduce my heating bill but my god what a waste of air time.

Meanwhile, here in South Florida right after Hurricane Wilma and like half of power lines were down because the poles were wood and so rotted that they snapped in the Level 1 winds and therefore people were without electricity for weeks.....Florida Power and Light actually charged a surcharge to every customer to make up for the money they lost during this period.  True story.

It's also true that right after than the number of people moving out of the state surpassed the people moving in for the first time in decades.

The Powers That Be want to say its because of the storms themselves....but a survey of moving companies found that most of these people are moving to the Carolinas....the center of "Hurricane Alley".

Not sure whether this should go here or in the ads we hate thread. But while the ad alerts me to this it's the policy itself that annoys the crap out of me.

OK so there are a bunch of Pizza places that do these $5 pizzas. They aren't the best pizza's ever but they're not bad in a pinch.

So of course Pizza Hut wants a cut of that action. However because they are Pizza hut they don't really make the same offer they just pretend they do.

"Get a great one topping pizza" they cry "aslongasyoubuyatleastthree" they mumble near the end of the ad.

Oh and Domino's has a similar thing.

Nothing to do with the visuals.  It's the changes to the dialogue.  The whole crap about "Anakin Skywalker's son" and "search your feelings"...

You mean those feelings that couldn't tell that Padme was dead and he had to ask?  The same feelings that couldn't tell she was carrying twins?  And why is Vader suggesting turning Luke and the Emperor agreeing since we were told in Phantom Menace that there's only two Sith - the Master and the Apprentice.  Shouldn't each be immediately suspicious of each others motives - that they want to replace the other (which they did)?

It just helps make all the stupidity of the Prequels more vivid....

......oh, and screw Sebastian Shaw! ;)

If Sebastien Shaw gets replaced with Hayden Christensen then Alec Guinness gets replaced by Ewan McGregor.  But even Lucas doesn't have the balls for that.

I think the general idea Lucas was going for was that the young, uncorrupted Anakin should be shown as he was before he turned to the Dark Side.  Since Obi Wan stuck with the Light Side throughout, he is shown as he was later in life.

Even so, that's technically kind of dumb, since Anakin was alive in his Sebastien Shaw persona after returning to the Light for at least a few minutes before death.  Worse, it takes what was a fairly poignant moment -- oh, look, even though he was the evil Vader for many years, his return to the Light Side has redeemed his old, corrupted soul -- and turns it into revulsion at having to see Christensen's vapid, sand-hating mug again.

OK here's a good place to say this.

It's my anniversary on Saturday and we thought we;'d go out for Tea. Tea is easy it;'s a pot of tea, some little sandwiches and a few petite fours. If I was in England I could head out in the afternoon stop in a place that did tea and bobs your uncle there would be serving of tea.

Now there are a ton of places that serve tea in my area but apparently one needs to book like a year in advance to actually be served A pot of tea some little sandwiches and a few petite fours. I mean how bleeding poncy can you get, it's tea, it isn't difficult it's one of the easiest afternoon meals you can prepare. I mean do they have to get the bread and petite fours from england for gods sake?

That's what bothers me about Tea (the drink itself not the meal but the attitude pervades the meal too) in the States, it comes in approximately three varieties:


OK well that was cathartic.

I took my phone out of my jacket and put it on my car's roof, then I put my jacket in the car...then I got in the car and drove away...ugh
Also the 2gb miniSD card(£80) inside got deaded too...yay! and my sim card...joy!

It stayed on my car till I got on to a main road, when it fell off I thought someone had just thrown a rock at me or something.  I got home and couldn't find my phone, realised what happened and drove all the way there and back again (50 minute round-trip) only to find it was completely busted after being repeatedly run over.

So, there I am in the deli, trying to replace some trays, and i see a couple of people looking at the cold cuts.
"Hello there, can I help you with anything?"
"No, we're just looking right now."
"Okay. If you need anything, just ask."
A couple more people come over and hover near the salads.
"Can I get anything for you?"
"No, just looking."
"Okay."
And over a couple of minutes, a bunch of people are hovering near the deli counter, none of them ordering anything, when suddenly they all rush up, ready to order. All at once. And as me and the other person there try to fill all these orders, people in line are getting impatient.

Kinda like working in a call center on Christmas for a company that has activation-based products (like cell phones). As if it's not bad enough you have to be working on Christmas, you now have to talk to all the pretentious dicks whose wife, brother, or father just dropped 400 bux to get them a new toy cellphone, and they want it to start working 40 seconds ago. You will probably take 80-120 of these calls in an 8 hour shift, and MAYBE 2 of the people you talk to will actually be nice.

Ok so I was hit by a car today.

I know a car travels fast and protects its owner but when a cyclist has the right of way would it hurt the driver of the car to be patient for the 10 seconds it will take for the person on the bike to get out of their way. Is their time really so precious that they can't wait for me to clear their path.

And after they've clipped the cyclist and sent him sprawling into the road to scrap his knee, get a nasty blood blister on his right palm and rip a lateral tear in the knee of his favorite causal pants, would it hurt them to perhaps stop to see if he's alright instead of staring bovinely out of their window and then seeding off while he still hasn't got back up and you know might be seriously hurt.

Oh and finally if you happened to be the other side of the road and witnessed this little incident would you a) At least wind down your window and see if the cyclist is alright, or b) back up and turn around and also high tail it out of the place. I'll let you guess what happened in my case.

Thankfully the damage isn't that bad; My knee looked horrid but it's really not too bad and my tailor can fix my trousers, but the whole situation  really pisses me off.

On the bright side if anyone's looking for a bike I can heartily recommend the Windstrom by Columbia Sports. The car twisted the handle bars at impact but I was able to realign them with no problem and the frame took no other damage.

Thing is I called them when i got home but I didn't have the number plate and i wasn't badly enough injured to have to go to the hospital so there wasn't anything I could really do.

The problem is the driver that hit me will probably end up doing serious damage to another driver/pedestrian/cyclist.

I should have picked up my bike and thrown it through their back window, they might have stopped then. But while they were still in sight i was doing the (http://www.moremyspacejunk.com/graphics/icons/familyguy2/Peter_Knee_Avatar.gif)thing.

That's why you always carry a knife to quickly slash their tires to prevent a hasty (cowardly) retreat - they can't even complain about you doing it, because if they try to say you slashed their tires, you counter with "Yeah, you fucking HIT ME WITH YOUR CAR." It's too bad didn't catch the plates... you could sue his ass and ruin him for being such a cowardly little shit. But of course, the important thing is that you're okay.

Ooh, that sucks, man... three inches higher and your kneecap could have really been messed up by that retard.

Allow me to bitch mightily to amuse you.

It's a fact of life that when I'm indifferent to something (like baseball), hearing people talk at me excitedly about it makes begin to despise that thing (i.e. baseball) based on nothing but my wrath at being talked at about it when I really could give two shits less.

Case in point: I live in PA, where there are, for some reason, two NFL teams in the same state (Steelers and Eagles). I now despise the Eagles with the same hate and spite that I (for the same reasons) hate Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. I hear the lame x-treeeeem DJs on the radio saying "Big game tonight! Stock up on BEER for the EAGLES game! Go EAGLES!", and there are two of these within 100 yards of my driveway.

This day was craptacular in a way that warrents "craptacular" being made into a real word.

First, I go to University after a weekend of study for my Finals.
Oops! I got the wrong week! I didn't even need to show up today! Finals are NEXT WEEK! Graa!
But while I was there, I tried to turn in a hard copy of a paper that's due, only the person I needed to give it to was not there, and didn't seem to even have an office! It was on the 4th floor of a 3 story building, I shit you not!  I spent an hour trying to figure that out, only to realize that I couldn't even do anything at that point!
Then, later, I decide to cool off by watching a newly purchased (though second hand) copy of Jurassic Park, with the new Quiptracks, AND THE DVD DOESN'T WORK!!
Then I go to work, where it is busy nonstop until closing, making me and everybody else half an hour late. Why was it so busy? Because people heard that there was going to be a snowstorm, and like panicked cattle, decided to stock up on SANDWICH MEAT!
WHAT THE HELL WAS WITH TODAY?!

The only thing I accomplished sucessfully and without complications today was putting up fliers for Riff Raff Theater.

Highlight of my day:

Hey Junkyard, I need you to do your Snow White thing and lure a mouse out of my basement. It's just the one as far as I can tell and he's managed to avoid or ignore the half-dozen traps that are littered around. I could have had him dead weeks ago if I'd had a snap trap to put in the path he runs every night from the bathroom to the closet, but no, someone apparently went to Home Depot and bought every single snap trap in the store before I got there. So I'm using these ones that are the size and shape of a hockey puck and have, as far as I can tell, a snap trap hidden inside them so that the mouse goes inside and gets his ticket punched so you don't have to look at a dead mouse hanging by it's neck. The little bastard just jumps over them.

Actually yeah, you mentioned that you have terrible luck with animals jumping out in front of you when you're driving something, and I posited that you might seem particularly unthreatening to them, causing their natural flight reactions to malfunction long enough for them to be run over or backed into. I think we arrived at the idea that you have Snow White animal-luring powers because they know you won't eat them or nail them to your wall.

Don't ask me to actually find the thread though....

Around here it's milk, toilet paper and bread. Shows you what their priorities are. I can't even imagine what the motivation or thought process must be for someone to just run panicking to the store and buy the most basic, primitive forms of food in the entire store except for maybe flour or salt. Do... do they actually think they're going to be snowed in until January and that they can survive with the same three items they pull off every time? I mean, you're from Wisconsin so I can kind of understand why people might worry up there, but they do it down here too. The last time it snowed more than 5 inches was probably in '99.

I hate my my town, city and probably this half of Pennsylvania. I was thinking about it the other day and I get the impression that if one were to somehow make a copy of Philly and populate it with hicks who enjoyed the convenience and infrastructure but neither knew how to really use or maintain it (and, confused, would continue to live like they were in Arkansas), you'd end up with York, Pennsylvania.

I have this superior at work who is absolutely the most inept incompetent idiot racist homophobic misogynist 35 year old frat boy in the world.  He's not my boss, not in the slightest, but because I have the misfortune of being one of the youngest people in my office, he tends to just bark orders at me, to fix his mistakes or file (ie: clean) his office, even though it's not my remotely my job.  Additionally, he spends a good portion of his work-life breaking shit.  Like he has serious anger management issues and has flipped out and broken nine or ten keyboards and punched in walls, but apparently no one noticed until after the fact.  He also spends a great deal of time talking about how his wife quit her job because she belongs at home doing "the wife stuff" and insulting our shall we say somewhat obviously gay clients.  He also spends a great deal of time making me vomit in my mouth.  Now my actual boss is his boss, and she has full on gone off on him for pulling this shit with me, but she's a lady (you don't need to listen to the womenfolk when they yell!  they're probably just on their period or something.) and he just keeps doing it.  He should have been fired long ago, but he's friends with the president of the company.

Now I started at my job very shortly after graduating college and I'm told I have a great deal of potential there and and I'm lucky blah blah blah, but he makes me want to throw things or staple things to his face.

Oh and tonight I fell asleep immediately after watching the Holiday Special, so that was 8pm, and now it's 4am and I'm wide awake.  Awesome times.

Please. There were maybe 2 school closings in the 12 years I've lived here. Actually, today UWM has closed, but I assure you that, if it stops snowing, we'll be back tomorrow.

What makes me go ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH!!!!!!  Idiots driving on Sunbury Road.  It's the pipeline I use to get my kids to school, and I swear they must put up a sign that says "Bad Drivers use this route."  It's a little two four lane road (two lanes each way), and you would think it was 270 from the way people drive on it.  The speed limit is 45, it has school buses and kids walking to school.  The reservoir is there and there is a sign warning people ducks cross with their babies on that road.  It's just not a road that should be used for hauling ass.  But does that stop some people.  Hell NO.  Most people driving anymore think it is only about them.  Some idiots haul ass doing 60-70 at least on that road.  They weave in and out of lanes.  They tail gate you, and you are doing 45-50 to keep from getting hit from behind. 

Okay, I'll expand that.  Drivers in Ohio.  Those worst being those on 315, 670 but man there has to be a special mention for Sunbury Road.

A few driving tips from someone who didn't get their drivers license out of a cracker jack box.

A)  If you are turning left on a green light (not a green arrow) ONLY ONE CAR IN THE INTERSECTION AT A TIME YOU FREAKING IDIOT.  Three or four cars in the intersection at a time is not legal and not SMART. 

There are so many damn idiotic bad drivers in this state, I have actually been honked at by people for waiting, until the car ahead of me clears the intersection before advancing into the intersection myself.  It is all I can do not to get out of my car and strangle the morons.

B)  You are not in the Indianapolis 500.  Your testicles or other male parts do not grow just because you are going faster than everyone else, and weaving in and out of lanes just to be in front. 

You are endangering other drivers.  A real man considers the safety of others.  An immature boy only thinks of himself, and his toy, even if that toy weights 2000 lbs and can kill people.

C)  See B about male parts.  It does not make you more of a man or a woman to drive way below the speed limit and the minute someone tries to pass you, speed up to 70 because NO one is going to get ahead of you.  Then slow down again to show what a "bad ass" you are. 

You are not a bad ass, see above about what a real man (or woman) is like.

D)  You are NOT the speed police.  You do not decide how fast or slow other people should drive.  It can be annoying (I know) when you in a hurry, to have someone ahead of you driving way below the speed limit, during traffic when you cannot pass.   That is no excuse to start tailgating them, flashing your lights, or other at temps to bully them to drive faster.  Especially, when that person you think is driving too slow (like me) is already doing five miles over the speed limit (just to keep up with the flow of traffic) and YOU decide the speed limit should be 70.  Simply have a little patience, and sooner or later traffic will ease up and you can safely pass them.  It isn't worth killing yourself or someone else to win that imaginary little race in your head.


E.  LEARN THE HELL HOW TO USE YOUR FREAKING TURN SIGNAL.  The drivers around you are not clairvoyant.  There is a reason why they put that turn signal in your car.  Weaving in and out of lanes without ever using your turn signal, or signalling a right hand turn, and then turning left is just asking for an accident.

F.  LEARN HOW TO MERGE!!!!!!!!! This is for those who use turn signals.  Turning on your turn signal does not automatically give you a right to change lanes, charge off the ramp onto the freeway, etc.  You are SUPPOSED to wait until you have room to merge/change lane.  It is not fun to watch a 18 wheeler, simply turn on his turn signal, never bother to even look if there is anyone in his way (because he won't be hurt) and just change lanes, knowing you better get out of the way or die! 

Okay, those are my ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHs about driving in Ohio.  I would say it has the worst drivers in the country, but unfortunately, West Virginia is worse.   :'(

Thanks for listening.  (sigh, ah, I feel better)

May I expand your list of helpful hints?

G. Yellow light means "slow down and prepare to stop" not "floor it and try to blow through the intersection before the light turns red".

H. While waiting for the right of way at a 4-way intersection, remain in your lane, don't creep slowly into the dead center of the intersection and sit there in your SUV until a path clears for you to remove your huge, bloated ass from other people's way.

Oh man, you opened up another whole new lane on this!  Good point.  Here's another one. 

I)  TURN OFF YOUR DAMN CELL PHONE.  If I had a dime for every time I have nearly been killed by someone not paying attention, because he's talking on a cell phone and driving at the same time, I could pay for the xtra minutes on my own.  You need to talk on the cell phone, PULL THE HELL OVER.  You are NOT as good a driver as you think.  When you are distracted, in fact you SUCK at driving.  Sorry to challenge your maleness/femaleness, but it's the damn truth.

J. If the light is yellow and lots of other cars are all hogging the intersection, don't join them and add yet another car that the people who now have the right of way can't get around!   Sends me into a tizzy I say.

K. I don't care how short the exit lanes are in Pennsylvania (to be fair, I've had driveways longer), you're supposed to use them to slow down instead of standing on your break pedal 10 yards from your exit while everyone behind you is traveling at highway speeds.

L .  If you know damn well that your exit is coming up, but you are still in the far left (fast lane) on 270/316 etc, please would you get all the way to the right a few miles BEFORE (or at LEAST a mile before) your exit comes up instead of going diagonally across six lanes, during rush hour traffic, just as your exit comes into view. 

I am amazed how many people do that and don't cause a six car pile up, and disgusted at how many people who DO cause one, doing that bone headed move.

M.  YOUR REARVIEW MIRROR IS NOT A MAKEUP MIRROR FOR PITY SAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  The most dangerous section of road I know is the 70/71 split and I was amazed to watch a woman driving that hazardous split putting mascara on, in her rearview mirror.  How she didn't kill herself and several others around her is still a mystery to me. 

N.  If it is bumper to bumper traffic and you see us poor schlubs who have to merge onto 270 et al, coming off a ramp, don't be an inconsiderate boob who says "oh I can't let anyone in front of me," be a nice guy and let some one over.  If you are considerate once in awhile, who knows, it might become contagious and you might benefit from that when YOU need a little kindness somewhere down the road.

O.  IF YOU see that about a mile or two up ahead the road that was 2 (3, 4) lanes is going to narrow down to one lane, because of construction or an accident, don't be an total jerk, and get over.  Don't stay in the lane that is about to close until the last minute and then foul everybody up by trying to get over, when everybody else got in line when they should of.  If you just get over and get in line, yeah things will be slow, BUT they will move.  If you have a bunch of idiots trying to merge over at the last minute it fouls up traffic terribly.  I always want to just strangle those inconsiderate boobs.

Used to live in Ohio, then moved to Colorado.  Drivers here are actually slightly worse in general, and they are completely stupid when it comes to driving in snow.  Half of them freak out and drive 5mph even when there's less than an inch on the ground and it's already melting off the roads, everyone else acts like there's no difference and will push it to 70 or 80 on the highway even if its coated in ice.

To the guy who was parallelling my path in the grocery store today:

Hey. When your wife says, "This is a good price" on an item, you don't have to ask her "Do you have to buy 20 of them or something?" You two have been married for years, and your wife is surely aware that you believe that if you have to buy a lot of an item to get a special price, then it's not much of a value. Hell, I'm aware of this and I've only been near you for 5 minutes during which you asked her your little question SEVEN FRIGGING TIMES!

Geez. Give your wife some credit for intelligence.

I'm having relationship problems.  I don't want to get into it and I highly doubt anyone wants me to, as this is not the forum for such whinings, but I am.  And it's making me RRAAGGHHH. 

Something I can and will get into: I have been waiting on a package from Bath & Body Works online for about two weeks.  Finally today I emailed them to find out where it was, and it turns out that it arrived at the post office a week ago and apparently they left three notices at my door.  No they didn't.  There was not a single one.  So I trek myself to the post office in the snow and when I get there, the systems are down and they're not letting people in.  They're looking for people's packages one by one however, so I wait and when they get to me, they give me attitude for not having the notice they didn't leave me.  Now, literally three days ago, I did this whole long interview with NBC Chicago about how Chicago, namely my neighborhood, has the worst postal service in the entire country.  I now believe this was karma from the god of mail for selling them out.  Assholes.

Anybody that's familiar with computer upgrades knows that they don't always go smoothly.. Case In Point:
I am currently upgrading my Main computer in my home office. I of course backed up all of my important programs and files to my backup hard drive.
After the installation of the new hardware, and reloading the OS, the back up hard drive for some reason can no longer be recognized. Error messages come up about this, and after several tries, I call for assistance from a friend of mine 3 blocks away (he has all sorts of Microsoft certifications and has much more experience than I at troubleshooting), and he tries with the same results that the hard drive cannot be recognized and maybe corrupted; which means, It's Shot!
All of my backups; for several years were on this 1 hard drive!!
Luckily, all of the files may be recoverable and he's currently moving everything off of the bad drive. I'll know for sure later if it was a success.. :speechless:

EDIT: Everything was retrieved succesfully, and a New Seagate 750GB hard drive is on the way! *WHEW*

I highly recommend moving to Houston in the winter months...... much nicer winters.    When I first moved here one of my neighbors was putting in a pool and I asked when you need to winterize the pool during the winter months in Houston.    He just stared at me.   You DON'T winterize the pools, they run year round.

My rant of the day is trying to work with guys in India.    We made some oracle changes and some jobs were running slower so we had two things we wanted to do.

1.   Make a program change, run the job and see if the run times improved.
2.   Make an index change to a table, run the job and see if that gave any more improvment.

Instead, the nobs made BOTH changes at the same time, ran the reports and said things were going better.   Now there is no way to tell which change made things better.   UGH, just do what I say and things will be okay!!!!!

Yeah, the term "dressing gown" doesn't get used in American English, and the word "gown," for Americans, generally connotes a long, flowing (female) garment.

If it's any consolation, Tripe, I knew what you meant; and, besides: if it makes you feel good, your choice in evening wear is nobody else's damn business.  :)

I'm thinking of making it everyone's business what type of evening wear Tripe wears by writing the Schiavo-Redux Personal Business Bill which would constitutionally mandate every brain-dead comatose patient to be kept alive indefinitely, and would require Tripe to refrain from referring to his sleeping garment as a gown and force him to wear long johns to bed.

You know what pisses me off?  Myself.
I'm working on this painting, it's a tiny little thing only 5 x 7 " and everything I do I hate.  GRAAAAARRR I put a line down, I hate it, I stick with it, paint over it,  I hate it - all it becomes is this mess of layers.  And acrylic sucks, seriously, people go on about how "oh you can utilize it just like oils because of all the different retarder solutions you can add to it" - but no, no it's still not oil paint it's just sticky plastic.  AHH I just want to throw all my paintings in a big fire and burn all of them sometimes.

So.  I just got myself a new laptop.  I'm looking to get into the Electronic Arts field eventually, so I caved and bought a Mac.  I like it.  Fun times, easy to use... a bit of a mess when I realized I forgot my administrator's name, but easily remedied.

What drives me up the wall is that I'm taking a Programming class.  And I love it, don't get me wrong.  It's a Java class, and it's a lot of fun, but I just realized last night that if I want to work on a project, I'll have to work on it from an on-campus source.  The JDK Toolkit and Textpad, both of which are required for this course, are not Mac-compatible.

Stupid Mac.

What do you mean, "lost" it? as in lost-lost, or "it died" lost, or it ended up on a really shitty serialized "drama" Lost?
The BIOS detected a fatal error during boot up, and apparently several bad sectors were detected while trying to retrieve the data.. = A Total Loss :'(

Holy crap.  That's terrifying; I use one of those as an archive.  Time to bust out the DVDs again for a hard-copy backup...sigh...

Can you at least format it and use it again?
Nope. It's too corrupted. It's a Western Digital by the way (I've lost 3 WD hard drives total now)..

Only good thing: It was under warranty so it'll be replaced for free (- $6.48 out of my pocket for shipping).
Won't help my lost files though..

I have had No Issues with Seagate hard drives, so I'm looking to replace it with that brand name instead.

Textpad is just a text editor.  I can't think of any reason why you couldn't just replace it with any other text editor.

And I've never heard of the "JDK Toolkit".  Is that some sort of development IDE for managing Java projects?  If it's just the JDK you're talking about, they certainly have that for Macs.  In fact, it should have come preinstalled.

There is definitely a text editor, and the install disc comes with development software that is an optional install.  Maybe you just need to pull out your install disc and look for it.

Andy just informed me that we just lost our website : www.fishandhebs.com and SOME guy snatched it up the SECOND it expired.

AND - to make it worse, they FAILED to notify us which of our 3 domain names were about to expire.  After finding the information on the hosting site, they sent us the 30-day expiration notice ON THE DAY that it expired!!!  Whhaaaaat?!?!!?

I'm going to go kick some puppies.

I've been working on redoing my '2nd in command' computer since last night, and it Has Been a FRIGGIN Nightmare so far.. :angry:

Backed up all important info to my backup hard drive, and started getting some wierd 'uCPU' error after wiping the OS hard drive and rebooting, and then Windows XP pro wouldn't load right, And Then, I decided to just move the files on my back up hard drive by hooking it to another computer only to discover the partition was somehow corrupted, So Now I'm having to retrieve All the files (200gb at least) and then back them up to yet another hard drive!

Finally got Windows to load, but with all this double back ups, it'll take me most of tomorrow, and probably into Tuesday to get the computer back to where it needs to be! :grr:

DAMMIT! COMPUTERS PISS ME OFF SOMETIMES!!!

No, actually, it's been officially stolen away by a mister Jason Falk.

After some internet research it looks as if this guy has quite a reputation and that there are many people who would like him to die a horrible death.  He's lost a few suits, but it's also very expensive to enter arbitration.

He just hasn't uploaded anything to our ftp server, so that's why all our stuff is still there.  But we're basically still paying hosting fees to a site we don't own.  So we'll have to switch to hebsandfish.com in a few weeks  :)

Well, after a day & a 1/2 of Extremely hecktic work, I'm Back! ;D

Had to drive to Atlanta, GA for an ongoing immigration case yesterday (Thursday) and successfully got deportation proceedings suspended for at least 4 months for our client.
The drive down to Atlanta wasn't that bad, but 4 hours of gruelung negotiations between us, the client, the hired attorney, the prosecution, and the judge, gave him the 4 months needed for further strategizing on his case.
The 4 hour drive back in hard rain, at night, through constant traffic gave me such a massive headache last night, I was in bed by 9:30pm EST (I think)

And I got my '2nd in command' computer back up and operational! :highfive:

Ok, I'll gripe: the computer I use to do data collection had a stroke recently, which fried the internet connection. This is important because the computer must be accessed remotely. I have the instrument today, so I can't replace the computer/hard drive/windows right now. I managed to find enough control cables to run out to the control room (hint- mixing PS2 and USB cables over 30+ feet does not work), and now the fricking VGA cable or booster doesn't have any green. So I can only see half my data. Whenever I turn away from the computer everything looks green. And I have to keep switching cables when I go in to make adjustments because none of our A/B boxes have 2 PS2's. Grrrrrrrrrr.

I don't have the means to package something This Big, let alone insulating it with packing material properly for shipment to California!
All I get from the 'Chinaman' on the phone (whom I can't even understand) says *Chinese accent* "They is no nothing we can do about that."

Post by: Dim of the Yard on March 04, 2008, 11:43:25 AM
Okey-dokey.  I'm ranting, so hold onto your butts.

On Friday, my Chemistry class filed into the classroom in order to take an exam.  The teacher came into class ten minutes late and gave us three choices:

1) Take the exam now [then], and we stay in the room until 3:00, when we normally file out around 2:50.
2) Take the exam Tuesday [today], and the class would be an obligatory review class where the students run pretty much the whole thing.
3) Take the exam home and hand it in on Tuesday, and it would count half as much as it did before, to make up for the fact that this is a take-home test.

The majority of the class picked taking the exam home with them.  Sure, it would count for less, but they're not redistributing the grade points.  I also picked this option, as well, as I was going to have a fairly compact week if we took the exam Tuesday.  I had an exam Monday, and I have an exam coming up on Wednesday, and I wouldn't have had enough room to breathe this week.  I mean, sure, it's college and I should get over it, but I can wish for a bit of breathing room.

So, once we cast our votes, the teacher leaves to get the tests photocopied (so she didn't even have them with her), people talk amongst themselves about the tests.  There were a few dissenting votes, people who wanted to take the test on Tuesday, but they decide they'll stop worrying about it and put up with it and take the test home and do it.  I get my test, I work on it steadily (even breaking into it at my boyfriend's house that night), and I get it done.  It's finished by Saturday afternoon, and I break into my first test of the next week and get a jump-start on the studying.

Enter today.  I walk up to the classroom, confident in my answers and sure that I was going to get a good grade.  But two people in the hallway from my class are arguing.  It's a very subdued arguing, but one kid is talking DOWN an older guy, and the more he talks, the more the guy gets angry at him and snaps at him.  Eventually, this calms down a little bit, and I write it off as a little tiff, until the older guy says,

"You know, this isn't right.  The whole class has to go along with what you want because you were crying in the back of the room."

As the guy insisted that he was in the front of the room and was not, in fact, crying, I did a mental double take.  What am I going along with, all of a sudden?

So, I get in there, get my coat off, put my stuff down... the professor is writing something on the board.

'MAKE UP EXAMINATION IS TOMORROW
3/5/2008
Consider the take-home exam review'

And she makes her grand announcement.  Basically, as a teacher, she has to find a common middle ground and keep things consistent with everything.  Because a couple of people complained about how the test was going to be counted and did not want to take the take-home exam, she decided to side with the minority and make everybody take the test on Wednesday.  The test would serve as a review sort of thing, and she didn't even consider counting it for anything.

Everybody was pissed off, especially me.  People were complaining that they had gotten it done on the first night, that they had stayed up until 5AM trying to get the test done... it was a majority vote.  A wide majority.  Even the people who wanted to take the test on Tuesday respected the decision and took the damn thing home.  But because one little creep couldn't keep his mouth shut, the whole class has to take the damn thing on Wednesday.

This would not have been too big a deal if, for one, we had been given proper warning for this.  If the professor had e-mailed us about this, say, Sunday.  Or yesterday, even.  Last night, at the latest.  But it was a split-second decision.  She had decided just this morning that she wasn't going to count the take-home exam, and she sent no e-mails in case anybody was checking.  Now, get this.  She wasn't going to count the take-home exam AT.  ALL.  Could it be review?  Sure, that's what she wanted it to be.  But she didn't have any of the answers to the test with her.  ANY of them.  She had a FEW, but not ALL of them.  Nothing from the bonus, most likely nothing about the short answer questions... she didn't even have the goddamn answers to the multiple choice problems!  For the love of God, they're not even numbers or definitions!  A-D for problems 1-6.022*10^23!  SHE JUST DIDN'T HAVE THEM.  So a FAT LOAD OF GOOD THAT REVIEW IS!

We were going to get no credit for what would have at first been worth 3% of our grade (as opposed to the normal 6%, as it would have been).  We weren't going to go over the test in class.  She was going to move on to a completely different topic.  So we had no way of knowing if the work we did was correct or incorrect, and it didn't matter, anyway!  It wasn't going to count for anything!

Thankfully, the rest of the class flipped a shit at her.  We called her out on how stupid this whole thing was, and this was her decision: This was going to count as a quiz grade.  It would not replace any pre-existing quiz or take the place of the lowest score, it would just be a quiz grade.  Since we were taking 5 quizzes worth 10% of our total grade, this test score is now worth less than 2%.  It's not an ideal situation by any means, but at least it counts for SOMETHING.

I had to transfer into a different school because my Chemistry grades were so poor, and Chemistry was my major.  I went down to the community college to get a better footing on what I wanted to do in life because whatever it was, it wasn't going to be Chemistry.  My grades in Chemistry were abysmal at the first school.  But I have never, EVER hated Chemistry as much as I hate it right now.

As a college teacher, I recognize what has happened in this situation: the teacher was unprepared, tried to offer a conciliatory prize, and was jumped on.  I'm not saying you were one of the "jumpers," but I think that she was just trying to make people happy.

This was her big mistake.  She should've been prepared and on time that first day, and then no problems. Since she wasn't, she should've stuck with her original "plan," i.e., to let you guys decide.  Once you make a decision like that, you really should stick with it, whether or not people are happy about it.



What do you teach? and where?

Anyway, yea teachers piss me off sometimes too. I mean, why bother fucking whining about 3 vs 6% of the grade? (in GOB voice) COME ON!

Alright, time for my rarg.

First, Christmas presents.

I still haven't gotten all of mine.

I don't want to be an ingrate, or sound like an ingrate, or date a girl named Ingred, but, this particular package is a bit tardy. x_X

It's frustrating. The person sending it can't mail it till they get their paycheck, which is on thursday, and with postal rates between their state and mine, it could take a while.

My birthday is March 30th. I'm having to put off making a birthday wishlist because I still don't know what I got for christmas. I've had to restrain myself from doing any shopping with teh christmas spending cash and gift cards, because I don't want to buy something that I've already been going to recieve.

I know it's a nice problem. It's a frustration many people would dream of having. I'm still getting presents, and what's more, I have gift cards and stuff to spend on presents, and there are people I can count on to get me birthday presents. It's just been wearing on my mind for a while. x_X

Another situation:

I have a girlfriend. She is awesome. But, she lives in another state. That's a bit of a problem, but we aren't too far apart.

The problem is that she has never driven on the highway, has no gps, and is bad at directions, Worse, I suck at directions too, so if she gets lost along the way I can't call her on the cell phone and help her reach me.

So, I can visit her. That's okay, but she really wants to come out and see me, plus her home is not a good place for alone time, and her parents are a bit paranoid.

x_X yeah. So, I think that's about all.


Wow. I really don't have much to complain about. o_o

This I don't mind so much, but then one of them starts to have a running commentary of everything I'm looking at on the internet. I mean come on! I think its rude and inconsiderate to be so nosy about what other people are doing online. Another occasion, someone kept repeatedly asking me what I was doing online, and finally I basically had to tell him to mind his own business. Can people not just mind their own God damn business?  :grr:

Well, today at work, we got in 3 super8 film reels. The guy wanted the footage transfered to dvd. Now this is a complicated process to do. You have to set up a projector and point it at the wall, close enough to the wall so that the projected video is only about 6 inches wide. Then you set up a camera (a very nice one, or you get crap quality of footage) and point it at the 6 inches of video, and record. Now they don't make any of these projectors anymore, so the ones we use here at work are old, and are more grumpy than old people without sleep.

Well, the guy that brought in his reels, had film that was spilling over the edge of the reel. So instead of 20 minutes of footage that fits on a 400 foot real. He had at least an extra 10 minutes, or 150 feet of footage spilling over the edges! SO that was the first shot to my inner peace.

So I very very carefully put it on the projector for fear of the extra film falling off and tangling up, which causes old film to break. But, the film was backwards...so I take all of the footage off of his reel, and put it on another reel which took about 20 minutes. And then after I was done...I realized that I put the beginning of the film where the end of the film was supposed to. So I undid the reel and put it back onto his reel another 20 minutes of time...I put it into the projector and guess what! The film was upside down, and BACKWARDS!!! I was right the first time, so I had to unspool it again, and put it back on!

By this time, my stress level had reached record heights...it was weird, I reached this state of mind where I just started chuckling instead of acting stressed. My boss seemed worried when he asked me what reel I was on two hours in, for me to smile and tell him I hadn't even started recording yet...

As I write this the second film reel is going through...I told my boss he has to charge the guy extra for having too much film. So instead of 16 cents per foot of film, he had to pay 17 cents per foot.

So that is my insane rant of the day...

So my work phone is a cell provided by a network that shall remain Verizon.

Oh and the piece of shit phone decided to set itself to "no ring" why the hell doe that option even exist? If you don't want to receive phonecalls you turn the damn thing off you don't drain the battery not hearing it ring. WTF and verily I say WTF?

Received an email yesterday with regards to my 22” monitor RMA, about it has been discontinued, and are wanting to replace it with this..
http://www.3gplaza.com/estore/control/3gplaza/productdetails?id=69415 
but before they send me this new one, I have to send back the rest of the hardware; power cable, audio cable, manual, along with the original box & packing material??  :grr:
I guess when talking to a Chinese representative, they think we Americans save all of our original boxes and packing material for everything we buy or something (?), but after repeating myself over and over that if I had the original box and packing material, I wouldn’t have spent $44.00 at the UPS Store for them to box it, pack it, and ship it!  :angry:
They finally agreed to accepting the hardware only, and will send me the new model upon receipt.

Yeah, luckily enough, I still have the original CRT monitor that originally came with my computer. What's even stranger is that it's about the only thing original about my computer. Oh, wait, the DVD and floppy drives are original, too. Other than that, it's all been upgraded. Sure, I'd like a new widescreen, LCD monitor, but until the ol' CRT bites it, I have no excuse to my wife to upgrade.

Well, KDS has a pretty good reputation (so I thought).. My temporary replacement monitor was a 15" CRT from KDS as well (go figure)
You could just tell her that it's acting strange, and it's giving you headaches staring at the screen er something, then go get you a 19" to 22" wide screen LCD monitor, and just put that old CRT up in your attic; just in case.. :o

For the life of me, I do NOT know how people can run on those things.  I mean, WHOSE natural leg motion is perfectly circular like an elliptical forces you to be?  Other than maybe the world's greatest track stars, NOBODY runs that way.  And I was ON the track team.  For me, it's pure torture to run on an elliptical.

I'm up late.

I feel nauseous and sick. I've tried getting to sleep and it's just not working. It's 4:21AM, I got about six hours of bad, nightmare-interrupted sleep last night, and I've got to head out to start my most packed school day complete with the three hour night class in five hours time.

When i try to go to sleep, I toss and turn and find myself wrapped in a cocoon of sour memories, existential dread, fragments of nightmares, and self-inflicted internal psychic pain.

Why is it so hard to get some gremplork rest? Why can't I try to take a sip  from the cup of oblivion, that brief respite from the troubles of being a thinking, feeling, self-aware entity, without being ambushed by every toxic thought I've ever had?

I guess this whole thing isn't so much a RAAARRGGH as it is a *whimper, moan, retch*

PS: My laptop computer, which I've sent away to be repaired at least three times, has made the leap from not-functioning-unless-I-remove-the-battery to just plain not turning on. At all. It's less than a frelling year old.

PPS: I still don't have my christmas present. -_-

So I'm at work right now, I just finished transferring some old film reels to dvd (one of them was an old 3 minute Laurel and Hardy short! Huzzah!), but when the lady brought them in, she said that they had been sitting in her closet for about 50 years...It always makes me happy when they say closet and not garage, because then they will be in semi good condition, instead of melting inside of my projector and me having to clean it.

But anyways, I had a weird experience with my RRRAAARRGGHH!! today. For the reels to go through the projector, the feeding holes on the side of the film have to obviously be on the right side when feeding in. But when somebody made a splice in the reel because of a break 50 years ago, they put the other part of the film, ON THE WRONG SIDE!! So when i am running the projector all is nice and dandy until... that splice goes through the projector (tape used for splices from 50 years ago, gets brittle and melts in the projector Rargh!)  but not only did the tape melt, but the other part of the reel wouldn't feed because the guy did a sloppy splice. So I had to flip it around (not hard) run it through (hard because of tape) and then make another better splice on the other side (results in about 5 seconds of lost video)

But my weird experience was realizing, that because some guy 50 years ago was lazy, it screwed me over and made my job harder and longer than it should have been today! So yeah, the moral of the story is this...don't be lazy, because you never know when your laziness is going to come back and bite some poor guy in the butt 50 years later...

Well, I Finally received my replacement 22" KDS wide screen monitor today (in an aftermarket box - not original  ??? ), and plugged it up. Everything looked good until after about 2 minutes, then the screen went black. I moved the mouse around thinking it was a power saver setting but nothing. I pushed the power button off and back on on the monitor itself, and it came back on. While it was on, I double checked the power saver settings and it's set to 'NEVER' turn off like I'd set it to originally. Then about 2 minutes later, it turned off again.. Same Thing! :grr:

I called up 3g Plaza where I bought it from again, and told the 'Chinaman' about this and he asked for the Serial # off the back and said he'd call me back.. Still waiting..
I have a bad feeling that I'm gonna wind up having to ship this Damn thing back to them Again :angry:

EDIT:   SONUVA...!!! It's Bad as well! :angry:
Well, Alex (got his name this time) called me back and told me to ship it back to them using the Same RMA# and yet Again I had to pay out of my pocket for shipping. I requested a different brand name this time as I’ve lost faith in KDS LCD monitors!

Okay, I come home from work and walk up to my computer to enter my time for the day (it's a weird setup where I put my time in online) and I see a bunch of windows about spyware removal . . . which means one thing - spyware and/or a virus has been downloaded onto MY computer. I learn a few hours later that my mother-in-law actually clicked one of those stupid video codec links on some site and now I have a Trojan horse on my computer. I looked it  up and eventually found a legit (I hope) piece of software to remove it since my spyware program can't seem to find it. But I still keep getting pop ups about it, so I have no idea how I'm going to get rid of it for good. I'm about ready to put a friggin' password on my computer. First it was finding the Yahoo toolbar magically appear on Firefox, then random game software being installed . . . now this. Add on top of that that she's been running up our phone bill . . . both of them, with long distance at home and text messages on my wife's cell. If we didn't need her to watch the kids while we're at work, I'd have half a mind to send her packing. But no, we need her, so I get to put up with the leech woman for God knows how long.

If worse comes to worse MSTJ, and if you have another computer, pull out the infected drive, switch the pin setting to slave (assuming it's a EIDE hard drive), and set it to SLAVE (usually marked 'SL' on the drive), and then go to TrendMicro and run their Free 'HouseCall' anti virus program on your system..
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/?WT.TM_clusty_flg=7
It worked so good for me in the past, I own 4 licences now!

If you know what sites she went to, you can block them as well with Trend Micro (unless your anti virus program offers that option already)
I have 6 machines, and my wife's part time family members like to brouse all over the place, and I'll just go into the History, and just copy & paste those visited sites into my 'Blocked' settings, and that's it.

Well, it looks like it may be gone now. I've run Ad-Aware and AVG anti-virus a few times each now, so maybe it all worked out.

On top of all this, it sounds like my 120 GB external hard drive might be trying to go out on me. It's making a god-awful racket even if it isn't actually dying. I'm considering purchasing an internal 320 GB drive, but first I need to find $80 just lying around. I recently retired the original 30 GB drive that came with my computer, too. So if I got a new hard drive, I'd probably make that the master, slave the one I have now, and after transferring all the data I want, reformat the offending drive . . . and then ban my mother-in-law from the computer.

okay, so I live in a house with 8 other people, 5 of them are all younger than me, 6 of them, act like they are younger than me...but that is beside the point

I'm grumpy today because last night, nobody told me we got pizza for dinner. I'm very picky and only like certain types, well there was only one piece of the kind I like when I found out it was dinner. I thought, ah whatever, I'll live.

So this morning, I decided to treat myself to some subway (my vice). So I knew I had to pick it up before work to be able to have it, which meant leaving early. So I skipped breakfast, even though I was hungry from last night's lack of food. But I figured, I will just get a footlong, instead of a six incher, so I will be nice and full to make up for the lack of food.

I got to subway, and realized I didn't have my wallet. I have never forgotten my wallet in my entire life. I'm slightly OCD, and always put everything I carry in my pocket (chapstick, keys, pocketknife, cell phone, etc.) in the same place on my desk in my bedroom. Well for some bizarre reason, I left my wallet next to my Nintendo Wii yesterday, so I left the house with everything but my wallet.

So I'm stuck by myself at the office, not able to leave because I'm by myself, and no money. So I'm not going to be able to eat until after work.

I'm mormon, so I've done my share of fasting for 24 hours. But that was with preperation, so I'm grumpy right now, because I'm hungry.  >:(

A couple of months ago, I needed to rent a car. My car got dinged up in a parking lot, and I needed a car for the day so i could get to and from work while my car was getting fixed. I went to the Enterprise Rent A Car closest to my job the day before I needed the car so i could get all the preliminary bullshite out of the way, and I could get to work on time the next morning. Everything was going swimmingly as I told them I needed someone to give me a lift to their location the next morning so i could pick up the car. My job is practically around the corner from this place, so I knew I would get to work at 9 with time to spare. They said, "Sure thing, Mr. OTC, sir!", and all was right with the world.

Until the next morning, that is. I get up early and make sure I'm ready before the driver would show up.

8:00 No sign of the guy.
8:30 Still no sign of the guy, I call Enterprise.

Who should pick up the phone on their end but the guy I dealt with the day before, who apparently FORGOT to send someone to get me. He says he'll call me back in 5 minutes to let me know when their driver was coming to my place.

8:55 No phone call, and no sign of the driver.

I call this fecking quarter-wit back, ready to go Frank Rizzo on his ass. You know what this idiot tells me? Despite the fact that I set this up 24 hours earlier, and gave him my address, it didn't occur to him until RIGHT THEN that it would be better for a DIFFERENT LOCATION closer to my joint to pick me up! This would be the location this ass-hat didn't say shit about the day before, when I gave him my address in the first damn place.

He says he faxed all the forms and stuff I filled out the day before ( you know, so I could avoid BEING LATE FOR WORK THE NEXT MORNING? ) to the Enterprise closest to my place, AND that I had to call this other location MYSELF to get the ball rolling.

9:10 Late for work, and I call the OTHER Enterprise. Their pick up driver is already out picking up other people, and it would be 15 to 20 minutes MORE before he can get to my place. I call my job and tell them why I'm running late, and luckily for me, they understood.

9:30 Dude finally gets to my place. We drive to the Enterprise in my neighborhood that I didn't even knew existed, and I'm ready for them to hand me some keys, point me to a car, and drive to work. Right?

WRONG. The douche nozzle at the FIRST location that said he faxed all my info to the second one? He didn't fax a goddamn thing!
So now, we have to wait for Torgo to waddle over to the fax machine and send my friggin' info over like he told me he was going to do almost half an hour ago.

9:55 Somebody finally showed this retard how fax machines work and we finally get my info from yesterday morning, (you know, so some bullshit like this wouldn't happen in the first goddamn place?) and I finally got a damn car.

10:10  Finally get to work an hour and 10 minutes late.

And the messed up thing? This whole mess, including some idiot backing into my car in the first place, STILL wasn't as bad as the time my best friend dragged me to a movie theater to watch "In the Army Now" with Pauley Shore.

I haven't talked to that bastard since that day.

  Our neighborhood association sucks ass. They're supposed to maintain our front yard, and if not for the fact that they use your own water from your own hose to water everything for you (which is really retarded now that I've typed that out and read it), Pak and I would have selected enormous water guzzling trees and shrubs just to make our fees worth it. Instead, we pay a substantial amount of money to have them come water a yucca (which is dying anyway), two tufts of desert grass, and two shrub things. We don't even have a lawn, just gravel. Yeah.

  So I go outside today to see that they've cut out the Russian Sage that's taken root under the front bay window (which I had plans to transplant to the backyard because Russian Sage is $30 a plant and these were free from Mother Nature) along with some weeds. I noticed some time ago that the gravel was going thin in a part of the yard and the weed screen buried enough that weeds are taking root left and right. Mind you, this started happening a couple of years ago. So in all that time, they haven't noticed this going on? They'd rather go around the yard cutting and trimming instead of just fixing the problem? Plus there's still the issue with the yucca.....

  I shouldn't have to call them about this, but it looks like I'm going to have to go all old woman-y on their collective asses.

Okay, so I accidentally wiped my computer the other day.  I lost all my pictures, mp3s, movies, tv shows, and games that I'd acquired over the past 10 years.  However, one of the most annoying things I lost was a spreadsheet file that contained all the movies I'd seen this year (yes I'm that much of a nerd) with the dates of when I'd seen them, their release date, how I saw them, and a couple of other things.  I've contacted imdb, hoping they could send me a list of the films I've rated in the past 4 months, so I'm hoping I can recreate the file.  So annoying...

RRRRRAAAAARRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!

I walk into work, feeling great. I got 9 and a half hours of sleep, a great breakfast, and was at work early  (all rare)  when I am greeted by my boss who is in a bad mood. You see, a guy called with a problem, the PAL hi8 tapes we transferred to DVD for him came out in black and white, and didn't have a clear signal.

My boss immediately pointed the finger at me, and said that he was going to have to refund money and that that isn't good because he is already low on money from moving our business to another location. (which we wouldn't be if he didn't decide to go all out with the new place and get tons of stuff we didn't need, i mean he bought a new couch for it!) I told him that I didn't think the dvd's were my fault, and if we had done it the way I wanted to do it, they would have come out right.

You see, he didn't want to move the PAL deck five feet to the DVD recorder that actually works, because that would entail crawling under the desk and unplugging everything, which we are going to have to do anyways because we are moving. So we used the DVD recorder we were already going to take back because it was totally unreliable. And so when the customer complains, its my fault. I explain to him why I don't think its my fault, and he says, "well, then it must have been the fact that every time you turn on the Region Free deck it defaults to NTSC." I said, "Are you sure?" and I went to check, sure enough I turn on the region free deck, and it is still at the exact setting I had it on last time, PAL to NTSC. I tell him. He doesn't have anything to say, but I'm still convinced from his mumbling, that when I redo the peoples tapes with a reliable DVD recorder I'm not going to get paid.

So yeah, now I'm in a bad mood, despite the exceptional way that I started off the morning. I'm just happy that my boss is easily intimidated, and that the moment I started acting angry he backed off on the throwing around of blame...that helped...a little.

You see there is a cycle, if something messes up, it is usually my boss's fault because I'm extremely thorough because I am a perfectionist. So he gets pushed around by the customers, then he tries to push me around, I get angry, he stops blaming me and then he leaves the office for a couple of hours so I can surf the rifftrax forums to cool off.

I am really pissed about the creation of chicken fries.  When I want fries, that means I expect potato.  When I want chicken, well I'll order it.  There is no need to mate these two food groups since they are perfect on their own.

Also I against any kind of snack/appetizer that is hastily put together just to take the public's money.  Case in point, Applebee's fried green beans.  This is not an appetizer, this is a mistake and it happened because a cook accidentally knocked the veggies in the deep fryer.

And don't even get me started on freakin mac-n-cheese bites.  I could stomach the whole two girl one cup video but I threw up the first time I saw this advertised on tv.

  Those are actually quite tasty. But if anyone thinks they're somehow making a healthier choice than outright french fries or cheese sticks, they've got another thing coming. I couldn't find the actual nutritional information for Applebee's fried green beans, but I looked up the info on a home made version. Assuming they're made in a similiar  fashion, one serving of fried green beans will cause over 1,000 calories worth of damage. Even a large order of McDonalds french fries clock in below 600 calories in comparison.

Now I'm PISSED OFF!! :grr:
Our internet service provider's servers have been going down off and on since yesterday morning and have been really reeking havoc on my sanity!
No reason was given or any ETA for fixing the problem just that the issue is still on going so I'm forced to hope I can get what ever I can done before the server goes down again.
What makes it worse, is that our area is forced to use this provider as they have a monopoly and own all the phone & cable lines, and prevent any competition from moving into our area but I heard the FCC is forcing our ISP to change this policy and we may get others providers allowed in by 2009 :o

Thanks for reminding my RVR I might have a RRRRRAAAAARRRGGGGHHHHHH!!! to add once I get home. Yesterday as i left for the gym I saw a trio of trained Comcast monkeys tinkering about with the main cable substation for my complex. I suspect they were removing more channels from the barebones service I have. Which means i might have to finally tell them where to insert their service and switch to U-Verse.

Download the torrent program, load it up, then go to a website that has torrents (for example, The Pirate Bay) and when you download the torrent, the torrent program will link you with other users who have the file or at least part of it.  The more "seeders" (people who have the complete file) there are, usually the faster it goes.

Yes, it has very high quality songs, I've never had problems with them at all. And I probably can attribute my tons of music to this website's amazing prices. And I looked it up, this site is totally legit, legal, and not a front for the russian mafia.

Sigh.

I'm sorry you had an emergency, but to plead ignorance about the trip after I'd been announcing it since April 4th is right out.  He's "making an effort" and "really trying," so thinks that should count.  Students out there: Don't pull this shit.

Effort is nice. Results matter.

So, I am the sole designer on a demo for our client who came in today to take a look at our ideas for the game. I was told several times that the demo showing would be at 2pm so I busted my ass to get it done by then. I did a lot of polish, adding explosions and all sorts of cool stuff. I even wrangled an artist in to help me at the last minute and she did some really tremendous work. Got it done by 1:15.

So, what happens? They had bumped the demo up to about noon without saying anything, so all of that work is wasted. Now that the demo is over, we're going to literally delete it all.

I've gone through 6 in the last 6 months or so.. 3 this month alone, and I haven't even burned a whole lot lately! The one I just got from my most recent RMA this past Thursday is already bad, and I can't send it back till I return from my vacation in Mexico :grr:

I started using these because of my recent motherboard upgrades in 3 computers which included having to swich from EIDE multi burners from LG, to SATA burners, and Lite On's were 1 of 3 brands at that time that had the SATA capability, and they were reasonably priced. It's become so frequent now, that I have a spare SATA burner that I keep handy to replace the next faulty burner that crops up :-\

How much faster? Because if you're buying them one ahead of time expecting a burnout, I'd say it isn't worth it.
It seems to be about 5-7 minutes difference (for me at least).. and all if my upgraded motherboards have only 1 or no EIDE connections at all.
I haven't bought any new ones as of late as they are being swapped out via RMA's.. I had a left over from a previous build.

Yeah, that hardly seems worth it, especially if you're not doing volume. 
Yeah.. Not 100% sure that my Nero software could be the issue, cause I use the other Lite On burner (I have 2 burners in all my computers) and it burns a disc just fine.. ???
But again, if you upgrade your motherboard, this is an issue that you'll run into as these newer motherboards are getting away from EIDE connections :-\

At least he can modify his own computer, nay, BUILD his own computer, and doesn't have to pay some smug hipster nerd to put in a proprietary burner.

I buy online and they don't have Apple stores here anyway.  Dim's problem seems to be that she doesn't know all that much about computers in general, and wasn't happy with how nerds treated her when they realized she wasn't one of them.  This is a problem in lots of computer manufacturer's, not just Apple.  Nerds do tend to think they are better than the uninitiated.

I can swap out RAM, harddrives, burners, motherboards just fine by myself.  You are just forced to get quality hardware, and not low end stuff like RVR seems to have problems with.  I've used Macs for decades though, so I'm not someone who was brought to Apple by how slick their ads are.

I'm still learning about different brand names when it comes to their quality, and at the time I heard some good things about Lite On burners.. Obviously, I must've been getting the wrong model or batch er something.. :-[
I had Great Luck with the EIDE burners before the upgrades. There's a lot more brand names of SATA burners now, and thinking about trying out another name brand when I get back from vacation, like going back to LG.

Like I said, I haven't payed for any new ones in almost 4 months; they've all been RMA swap-outs, but I am having to pay each time for shipping which is starting to talley up now >:(

So, I'm listening to the radio and I get hit three idiotic ads in a row.

*A PSA ad reminding me that it's not a good idea to shake the baby. Nooooooo. Really?

*A ad for the Body and Ink Expo, reminding me to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at the Expo. Yes, because main reason that the Mexicans were fighting the French was that the citizens really wanted some bitchin' tats and belly rings.

*And an ad for Snapple's anti-oxident water, reminding me to Protectify myself. Now, the mangling of the English language is bad enough, but then they  scream it back at me at the end of the ad. PROTECTIFY!!!!!! Somewhere, there must be a hitman with an English degree who'd be willing to take out some ad people pro bono...

Indeed. Or 4WD. Or SUVs. Or cowboy boots. Or any number of stupid, pointless, status-grabbing idiocies.

You know I'm a city boy, and I've got two trucks and a jeep for our cars. Sure they aren't gas efficient, but when they come out with trucks and jeeps that are...I will get one. And the reason why I have them? I go camping a lot, I've used the 4WD in them a lot. I don't however own cowboy boots...or a hat.

Instead of those hanging off of my truck though, we have trailer hitches on them. And let me just say, those things come in handy. I've been rear ended 3 times in my truck, and each time there was no damage at all to me, but their front end always got tore up.

Also trucks come in handy on the freeway as well. You can always drive very offensively in large cars because people are always going to move (I suspect that is why high strung soccer mom's own SUV's though... :speechless: )

SUV's are pretty stupid though, as are hummers...I mean those are just pointless. At least I own trucks for a reason. Oh, the jeep is just cool though, you should see it with the lift we have on it, and the big off road tires. Awesome.

Trucks come in handy if you ever have to haul something or bring something back from Home Depot that's bigger than a matchbox. Or drive in the snow. Trucks are practical pretty much anywhere you live unless you're in Japan or something. SUVs and Jeeps are just affectations unless you live in the boonies.

Civilian Hummers never had a point.

Indeed, I live in Houston and had to ask a friend of mine with a pick up truck to help me go and pick up my 8 foot tall Yao Ming poster that I had framed.    I have no idea how I would have gotten it home without him.

They are also good for hauling bricks, sand, etc. if you are doing a home improvement project.

If you are hauling Yao Ming posters 3 times a week, then it is practical.  Otherwise all we need is a communal truck, or we could have a rent a truck service if there is a strong need for a pick-up.  Or if you are hauling bricks X-many times a year you need one, but come on these are silly reasons.

See part of my decision to get the Fit was because the back seats fold completely flat and I can then hall things in my speedy wee car. I don't need a truck to haul things and when I have kids I'll not need a SUV to take them places. My father managed with a Volvo station wagon for most of my childhood.

We did have a Landrover a long time ago but we actually did live in the middle of nowhere and I was very small at the time so like maybe '78-80, something like that.

Because for every idiot who's attaching these things to his trailer hitch, there's a dozen people who actually use a pickup truck for hauling things. Contractors,  landscapers, snowplows, people delivering various items. If you think that "your gas" would be better off if these folks were driving a less fuel efficient box truck instead of a pickup, well, perhaps you should reevaluate your position.

Grrrr....
Does it snow where you live, Imrahil? Because it does here. And for the four months out  of the year where there's a good chance of a significant amount of snow and/or ice on the roads, a 4WD makes the drive a hell of a lot safer than my drive along the same route  in a 2WD car. To many of us out here, your "stupid, pointless, status-grabbing idiocies" are necessities.

Did I say contractors, landscapers, snowplows, people delivering various items?  I'm talking about exactly the other people, and I think you know that.  I'm talking about the people that use the bed of their trucks 6 times a year.  I'm not saying ban pick-ups.  I'm saying people who don't need them on a regular basis for practical purposes drive them daily.  I see it all the time here.  So no, that is my position and it doesn't need re-evaluated.  Please don't put words in my mouth.  I'm talkin about a specific kind of person that I think is prevalent.  Your talking about other people.

Do you go off-road camping?  Cuz when I go camping there are roads that take you to the campground.

You're not driving up hillsides.  Your stealing my gas.  Give it back.

And yes, there are several particular places that I go camping lots of times throughout the year that you have to use the 4WD in my pickup to get there. Because I don't go camping where lots of people go. If you go camping where lots of people go, then there are going to be roads, and you will have to pay for it. But where I go camping we get to go shooting, actually build a fire, and actually get a taste of what the wilderness is like because you are far away from anybody.  And whenever we pack up everything we need for comfortable camping, it takes the entire bed of my truck to fit it all in. So I'm one of those people who use their trucks more than 6 times a year, probably 7.

My truck has almost 200,000 miles on it, I've taken lots of care to make sure this thing made it that far. And I"m hoping it will last till 250.000. I've had this truck for about ten years, and we have used it many many times. Like, a few years ago we did a room addition to our house. We were constantly hauling lumber and all kinds of things from home depot to our house, we definitely needed it then. I remember going on a trip with my dad when the truck was pretty new, he was showing us how amazing the desert of Nevada is and how we need to take care of it, and wouldn't you know it, we got stuck in some gravel. Without our 4WD, we would have gotten stuck, and would have had to ditch the truck.

I've needed my truck several times this year already, for things your small sedan wouldn't be able to accomplish. I don't see why all of you are so upset by people driving trucks and jeeps and SUV's for fun. I mean, some people buy Corvettes for fun, others buy really big trucks. I don't see a problem with that.

The problem with that is that gas is a finite resource.  People who drive trucks and stuff for "fun" take way more than they should of it.  Yes, they pay more, but that isn't the point.  I think we should start nailing these people with massive at-the-pump excise taxes, or ration gas.

You know what, you are right. I've noticed how much of a fortune I'm paying in gas, and it is a finite resource, and it isn't responsible of me to be using so much gas. But seriously, when they have a fuel efficient truck, I'm getting one, but for now, i need my truck for many things, and I'm going to use it. Heck, my truck is on its way out with 200,000 miles on it anyway, and I have been thinking about trying to find a fuel efficient truck.

OK.. 1st off: I've been plagued with a combonation of computer and internet issues down here in Mexico... :grr:

It's been taking me a while to get online due to limited internet access from the wife's family upstairs and I'm using their connection to get online.. They keep disconnecting it at odd times; that and frequent power failures down here.. *sigh*

I mentioned this in my vacation thread, but I had a serious crash on my computer down here in Mexico a few days ago and the issues continue..
My computer's OS somehow got corrupted where it wouldn't boot up at all; not even in safe mode. Luckily, there's a computer tech around the corner with limited knowledge of Windows XP in English, that had a OS disc in English, and was able to do a repair install to replace the corrupt/missing files.
But Now I'm having trouble getting Windows Updates to install. My version of Windows was a valid version before this happened, but I was still able to acquire and install my OS updates. Now I can only download them (109 total updates) but cannot install any of them.

I'm afraid it may be just the fact that an older version of Windows was reinstalled over top of itself and that version that didn't have the updates slipstreamed into it.
It will require another "repair" with a disc that DOES have them slipstreamed and that SHOULD fix the issue, but that would require taking the guts back out of the computer, hauling them back to the US, fixing it there and then bringing it all back down to Mexico to reinstall (in December..) :grr:

I may just leave this one the way it is, and just buy another set of 'guts' (mobo, processor, memory, & a hard drive for the OS & mobo drivers) to just replace everything instead, cause I may not be getting back down here again till the end of the year.. :angry:

Well...I've been having problems with my Toshiba Satellite 1135-S125 laptop. Power problems to be exact. One fateful day the laptop stopped accepting power...so I bought another power adaptor, it kind of worked for a month, off and on, but I was having weird problems with it. Like halfway through powering it up, it would stop receiving power and then run on the battery, without telling me. So when the battery runs out it would power off, and then immediately turn back on using the power from the AC cord, and begin charging the battery again. Over and over it keeps happening.

Well yesterday, when the battery ran out...it didn't turn back on. It won't turn back on, there is no power in the battery, and the AC isn't working. Not only that, but the Hard Drive is in such a place that you have to open up the entire computer to get to it, instead of opening up a convenient flap like other laptops. So yeah, hard drive recovery is going to suck. Strike one.

But...all this I could normally deal with, I mean this is an old laptop, I didn't really have anything important that I don't have backed up, but what really pisses me off...is that I looked up my problem, and apparently there is a known problem with my model of laptop where the DC input cracks on the circuit board, and you can send it into Toshiba and they will repare it free, as long as it is under warranty. The warranty ended a month ago. Strike two.

But I also found instructions that tell you how to resauter an area that apparently fixed it. Awesome. I know how to do this, so I begin to open up my laptop when I run into a problem...my screws are melted. Because apparently there is another known problem with my Toshiba model that has problems overheating. So yeah, can't open my computer. Strike three. I've officially gone pants crapping insane. Nothing. Nothing, ever works the way it says its supposed to.

Yeah, I hate technology...kindof

SUNUVA BITCH!!! :angry:
My computer crashed again right as the 20 Qs for SAW was about to begin, this time much worse...
Fuckin Primary Master hard drive (with the OS) Completely crashed and I could not recover anything :grr: Not that there was anything really important cause it is just a vacation computer while down here..
Also the processor may have been damaged due to an inadequate processor fan to combat the excess heat down here{ along with a voltave instability..
Come to find out, the power down here is very unstable, and computers require a Voltage Regulator to protect them from sudden surges or power outages that a normal surge protector cant protect against.
After 4 days now its still not running (right) and I may be forced to just gut everything and take it home with me and either rebuild the guts there or just scrap it altogether and just bring a whole new set of guts (motherboard, processor, memory, and hard drive for the OS) next trip down here :angry:

So I'm using my wife's nieces computer for the next day or so :-[

Well, it looks like its finally semi operational now, but being that I lost all my installed programs and files, and all that is back in the U.S., I,ll probably just gut it anyway and test everything back in the states to determine if the hardware is ok and stable to reload everything, and if not, just scrap it and start over :(

So I'm driving down to see my fiancee this weekend, thought we'd check out Iron Man. She says "oh, my friends all want to meet you and hang out with you, so we'll have to do that at some point."

I paused.

"Um, why? They're -your- friends."

"They just want to hang out with you."

"Well I don't want to hang out with them."

You can guess where it went from there.

I'm fine with her having friends.  I really am.  I don't want to go and be put on display and have to be little mister manners in front of a bunch of people I don't know.  I'm not moving there to be friends with them, I'm going to be with my soon-to-be wife.  Very frustrating.

I know you don't want to hear this, Imrahil, but part of being in a couple is accepting that things will simply not be the way you want them all the time. It's the nature of the beast.

Day # 330 of my job slowly killing my soul:  I have a superior in my department who is over the top out of his way super sweet to literally everyone except me.  He walks in and joyously proclaims "good morning!" to each and every female in this office, and then I get a pretty downtrodden forced "morning" if anything.  What.  The.  Fuck.  I'm a very nice pleasant girl.  And before anyone thinks it, he's definitely nice to ugly atypically attractive people too, so I don't think it's that he finds me offensive looking, otherwise I could just write him off as your every day average corporate asshat.  I'm really perplexed as to what it is about me that incites such dick-itry.

What a sad, sad story
Needed a new leader to restore
Its former glory
Where, oh, where was he?
Where could that man be?
We looked around and then we found
The man for you and me

And now it's...
Springtime for Hitler and Germany
Deutschland is happy and gay!
We're marching to a faster pace
Look out, here comes the master race!

Courtney don't feel too bad over your snubbing by a superior (and BTW, who the hell thought of that job title?) All my bosses have loathed me in some degree.  In my last job I was a section editor for a magazine and because I didn't do blow with everyone (because I'm not stuck in the 80's thank you very much...get with the times people, we do Meth now) I was constantly left out of meetings, email announcements, etc.  In fact, because the publisher was such a dickweed, at one party promoting our yearly anniversary he had all the editors up on a stage and conveniently moved passed me without saying a word and at an issue launch party I was barred from going into the VIP section with the other editors because I wasn't wearing a dress THAT I DIDN'T KNOW  WAS MANDITORY!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I send the mortgage payment off on Monday, counting on the typical 2-3 day delivery time to Nevada and the fact that the money will be in the bank on the 15th also within that time span. So what happens that has NEVER happened before? The mortgage company literally gets the payment the NEXT DAY. Naturally, before the money is even in the bank. They also naturally cash the check immediatly.

  This annoys me for 2 reasons (other than getting overdrawn at the bank): 1) If we're ever running late with the payment and it would actually help us out to get a 24 hour delivery to avoid late fees, we couldn't alter the space/time continuum to get the postal system to move it that fast. It's ALWAYS been 2-3 days if we're late. 2) We've sent the payment in time, but the company sits on the check for a couple of days, and we get a late fee. So the ONE TIME we technically float a check, based on five years of experience with delivery times and check deposit times and what not, the post office decides to move at lightening speed and so does the mortgage company. It's as if they all somehow knew the funds wouldn't be there and decided to piss me off.  >:(

So.  My neighborhood is a nice, quiet part of the town.  Nothing really exciting goes on, and the worst we had was a bunch of loud, asshole-ish kids from the high school, and they haven't been around for some time, not since they made friends with some rich kid.  So imagine my surprise when, right around 11:30 at night, I hear this group of people on the streets, yelling and screaming and carrying on.  People are yelling at each other, cursing at each other, and honestly, it doesn't even get that loud during the daytime.  Shortly after this starts up we've got neighbors joining in the yelling (mostly a chorus of "SHUT UP!"'s all around), and my folks call the cops, then pop out to investigate.  I stay inside to keep the dog under control.  (It's a pug, man.  Those things can be vicious.)  They come back and fill me in a few minutes after.

As it turns out, those are our new neighbors.

It's going to be a long summer.

So after my last visit home my Dad makes a big stink about wanting to keep in contact better, he follows this up by not calling me on my birthday.

At least I know I'm not alone here, my brother's birthday is two weeks before mine and he didn't get a call either.

If I am your son from the future, then I'm pretty sure you'll go partially senile before you sire me, if only because you're a Rifftrax fan now, and I can't for the life of me explain the concept of Rifftrax to my father.  Any time I try there's several moments of silence then "but then, how does it get on the DVD?" or something like that.

Now I'm just confused.

Not too long ago, I received the following e-mail from PayPal:

Quote
Dear PayPal Member,

As part of our efforts to provide a safe and secure environment for the online community, we regularly
screen account activity. While reviewing your PayPal accounts, we observed activity that we would
like to further verify. For this reason, limitations have been placed on your account until your will

We thank you for your prompt attention to this matter and apologize for any inconvenience.

The most confusing part of this whole debacle?  I don't even have a PayPal account.

I've shot off an e-mail to Customer Services explaining the situation.  Maybe they'll have an explanation for me.

It's a phishing email.  They are trying to get you to log into your PayPal account (if you had one) on their phony website so that they can steal your password.

I got one of those when I was a freshman in college and totally gave over my credit card info.  It was right after I started using eBay and Paypal.  Luckily I figured it out immediately after I'd done it, and cancelled my cards within minutes, but I still felt like a big dumbass calling my parents and telling them about it.

I can deal with temperatures upwards of 80 degrees without feeling too bad as long as they're outside. Inside, anything above 72 sends me into hysterics. It's some kind of maddening, primal frustration over the fact that inside shouldn't be hot and if it is, there's nowhere you can go to escape it. If you want, I'll help you sneak a new AC unit out of Home Depot.

Today in Las Vegas it got up to 106 degrees...Every year I forget how hot 100 degrees and above is. I pity anyone who goes to the strip during the summer, when it is 106 degrees for me on the outskirts of town...all the pavement on the strip makes it at least 5 degrees more. Plus I timed out how long my truck takes for the air conditioning to get cold...13 minutes, the exact time it takes for me to drive to work.  :'(

I'm developing a cowlick on the left side of my hair from having the window rolled down while driving all the time...but luckily, a cold front is coming in, and my Wii's weather channel is telling me the high will be 80 tomorrow. Yes!

Growing up in Mississippi, I thought I could take heat. I mean, the summers there just hang around the hundred degree mark with a hundred degree humidity. We'd go and hang out and afterwards, it always looked like I was an extra in Predator. Just caked in sweat. Then I moved to Oakland, CA. It got up to the 100 mark the other day, which was fine, except... NO PLACE HERE HAS AIR CONDITIONING!!!! The chocolate I left out on my counter in my apartment melted, as did one of my plastic cups (how that happened, I just don't want to know). It never got below 85 in my apartment for the next 2 days. I told my folks and they said the next time it happens, I am to get a hotel room and charge it to them, which is nice as all get out.

www.avast.com also offers a free home version of their anti-virus software and I have absolutely no complaints about it at all. All they require is you to register on their site for a key which only requires giving them your email address. They don't spam you either, I think it's just a way for them to track how many people use their software. The key expires in a years time but all you have to do is go back to their site and register again.

Post by: daltysmilth on May 25, 2008, 12:10:39 AM
Okay, time for me to vent.

HUMAN BEINGS ARE A BUNCH OF LAZY, INCONSIDERATE JERK-BAGS!!! 

There.  I said it.

Customers at the Kmart I work at are all the evidence I need of this.  As a stockperson, it is often my job to go retrieve shopping carts from the parking lot.  A task which is a lot more difficult than you might think, especially at my Kmart.  You'd think that, in a parking lot, of all places, pedestrians would have the right of way, but in the Kmart parking lot, the philosophy seems to be "Pedestrians should get the hell out of my way."  The drivers don't slow down for anything.  Women, children, small animals, other cars... anything.  It's truly a miracle that there aren't accidents there daily.  (I probably should have an entire separate rant about how nobody in my town uses their turn signal, and how I almost got sideswiped once because another driver crossed two entire lanes without so much as a blink from their turn signal.)  Which makes pushing a long train of shopping carts into the store much more difficult than it needs to be. 

Complicating the problem is the fact that people put their carts anywhere except the corals.  Perhaps they think that the corals are sacred ground, ground which must not be sullied or disturbed by the presence of lowly shopping carts.  (And trust me, it's not just elderly/disabled people who don't put their carts away because it's difficult for them.  I see plenty of young, healthy, virile-looking people leave their carts out too.)  I've had times where people could clearly see me retrieving shopping carts, and instead of waving me over to take their cart, or at least putting it in a coral for me to retrieve later, they just push it up against the nearest light post if they're feeling especially generous, or more likely just leaving it right next to their parking space, where the slightest wind can send it careening into another car.  All while I was no more than 10 feet away and clearly visible. 

Of course even worse than them are the people who leave their trash in the shopping carts.  We have trash cans just outside the main entrance, and just inside the main entrance too, so there's plenty of opportunity for people to throw their garbage away before they get to their car, but for some reason, a large percentage of them think that "shopping cart" and "trash can" are the same word.  Of course usually it's not too bad.  A soda can here and there, an empty box, once I found the containers from an entire Taco Bell meal.  I should point out that there's not a Taco Bell anywhere near Kmart.  So these people are either deliberately being a--holes or they're at the very least being willfully ignorant/lazy.  Of course, what I found in a cart tonight takes the cake: a used, dirty diaper.  That's right, after changing a baby, someone decided rather than not being a lazy, inconsiderate jerkbag, they'd leave it for someone else to take care of. 

The worst thing is unless we catch them in the act, we have no idea who does it and we can't take any kind of action against them, even if it was just telling them not to do it anymore.  So in conclusion, if you go to my Kmart, don't be a jerkbag, and I promise not to form an instant loathing of you.

I sold a book to a guy on the amazon marketplace to a guy for $5. Amazon told him when he ordered it could take up to 14 days for the item to arrive, because he paid for standard shipping (Media Mail). Ten days after he ordered the item, he emails me telling me the book hasn't arrived, and demanding a refund ASAP (And the email was one of the least verbose I've ever seen). I try to reason with the guy - ask him to wait until the full shipping time allotted has gone by. No dice, I get a All-caps email demanding his refund. So I refund the price of the book, $5, explaining that since I did ship the book, I feel that's a reasonable compromise. I get this back: "NO --- IF THE BOOK IS LEFT AT MY DOOR --- I AM NOT GOING TO PAY FOR SHIPPING BACK---- FULL REFUND!!!!!!!". I reply back saying I don't want the book back, nor do I want him to ship it back when it arrives, and ask him to explain to me why I should refund the shipping charge when I did ship the item. No response. Finally, I decide to be rid of this idiot and refund the $3.99 shipping charge as well. I get this beaut in my email today: "Not exceptable --- never received book--- will dispute with VISA--- Also if I do receive book -- i might as well sell it my self and get my money back --- DUHHHHHH!!!! But I never received book -- So I will dispute the charge with VISA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  DUHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!"

All this over a $5.00 book. This guy is a world-class idiot.
Ok, my rant is over.

Never, ever give them the refund yourself. They can claim in through Amazon if it's really that unsatisfactory.

I refunded through amazon. So there is that track record going for me, and I've also emailed them about this douche.

Dang...I was going into a gas station and as I was driving by, this lady backed out of her parking space without looking and hit me. I had the right of way, and I saw her just as she started backing out, but it was too late. So I had never gotten in a car accident before and the only thing I knew to do was call the police, but since we were in a private parking lot the cops wouldn't come. So I called my Dad.

Even though it was totally her fault, she wouldn't ever admit it, saying that I shouldn't have been speeding through the parking lot, but I go through that parking lot once a week for about a year now, and its the worst designed thing on the planet. So I was purposely going slow, and even driving far away from the parking spaces....but she still got me. I looked at her face when she hit me, and she was totally caught off guard, if she had even glanced in her mirror she would have seen me.

The worst thing is that she didn't have any visible damage to her car at all, but there is a huge dent on the side of my truck towards the back. I'm not being sadistic, I'm glad she didn't get damage to her car, but because she didn't get any me and my dad are worried the insurance companies won't believe that it was her fault....but, there are still nice guys in the world...After I left, the gas station owner came out and told me even though he didn't see the accident, he would give me a copy of the security tapes if I came down to the gas station tomorrow before ten o'clock and tell him the time that it happened. Thank you mr. gas station man.

Post by: Tripe on June 02, 2008, 06:13:12 PM
it the dent on or near the bed of the truck? I can't see any reason that they'd not believe you had the right of way. That sort of damage really isn't consistent with anything else.

That sucks though.
Title: Re: RRRRRAAAAARRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!
Post by: bettertomorrowamy on June 02, 2008, 06:13:12 PM
You're going to have to sue her because it will probably be determined to be a No-Fault accident.

  From what Fortis described, I'm thinking she'll be at fault no matter what (especially if there's videotape to back it up). Cars backing out simply don't have the right of way and must yield to oncoming traffic. It wouldn't matter if he was speeding, talking on a cel phone, messing with his radio, or doing all 3 at once. It's up to the person backing out to be watchful.

Post by: Fortis on June 02, 2008, 06:45:57 PM
Thanks for the votes of confidence guys...I was absolutely sure when it happened that it wasn't my fault, because it wasn't. And then after talking to my dad he got me all freaked out that it might actually be mine. So hearing you guys back up my story takes the stress off a lot.

I'm telling you, I probably shouldn't have called my dad, because the people were really nice and made sure I had everything I needed, and even gave me more information then what my dad told me to get. The only thing my dad did was stress me out by yelling in my ear to make sure they didn't drive off. He was like, "move your truck so they can't leave," freaked me out.

But everythings okay now, he calmed down and talked me through it.

So, a couple weeks ago I have my birthday, most of the family calls but not a word from my Dad.  At first I was worried, he hasn't really been in contact at all lately, I find out he didn't call my brother on his birthday either (his is at the beginning of the month) but my mom has seen him since and knew he was okay, so I just got angry.

The other day I finally get a card from him.  He tells me "sorry this is late, I don't know if you heard but I was hit on my motorcycle a few weeks ago."

Okay, I didn't know that BUT, that doesn't mean he couldn't have called.  Why is a birthday card the first I'm hearing about something like that?  If he was in an accident, and it was bad at all, shouldn't someone have called me with an update, and if it wasn't that bad, which I'm guessing is the case based on what Mom was telling me, then why would it stop him from picking up a phone?

Man! That DOES Suck..
IN SC, the 'Rules of the Road' don't apply in parking lots so the cops won't issue a ticket, but Hell Yeah for Security Tapes!
Your insurance co. could request those, and then go to her insurance co. and get the damage covered that way!

People are idiots and should really LOOK when they are driving.

Eugh, don't I know it.  I was in a car with my "surrogate sisters" the other day (read as: my best friend and her sister), and her sister was behind the wheel.  It was a busy day on the highway, and said sister is a relatively new driver, so she was taking it easy, going about five miles under the speed limit in the right lane-- not much of a choice there, as we had somebody not too far in front of us, so going faster would have been rather... well, rude.  We also had a truck coming up on our ass at an alarming rate, and there was somebody in the center lane who was a few feet shy from being right next to us.

In retrospect, I think we were perhaps in this person's blind spot, although it could not have been helped in the traffic conditions we were in.  However, a glance over the shoulder would have been enough to tip off the other driver as to our presence there.  Instead, the driver decides to merge over without checking her blind spot.  He/She doesn't speed up a bit or even put on a blinker until he/she was partly in our lane and a few inches away from hitting us.  He/she just idly drifts over while we're in the other lane, stuck in her blind spot, with no way to stop with that truck up our ass, and two-thirds of us screaming all the way.  (I wasn't screaming.  Then again, I was on the passenger's side, and the other two were on the driver's side--where the car was coming from.  I had a bit less to worry about.)

We manage to slow down and swerve just enough that we avoid the car by a few scant inches, and the truck takes advantage of the newly-opened lane by pulling out around us and speeding off into the distance.  Crisis averted, but we were shaken up for some time.

Also in retrospect--the horn probably would have done wonders for us.  Oh, well.  Better to let the guy ahead of you and put the situation behind you.

I never think to use my horn either. I've been cut off so many times have been in many near misses...but I never think to lay on the horn...oh well.

It sucks living in Vegas, nobody cares, they go as fast as they can, and do what they want, that is why I'm glad I drive a truck, because at least I can be a defensive driver.

BTA that sucks...something my dad does when something craps out on him with our cars, is he forks out the money for a lifetime warranty on all of our parts, and then when they crap out, he gets another one for free. We have to spend a saturday to fix it ourselves...but we save a couple hundred bucks.

Well mine probably isn't quite as bad since I believe I still am covered by their year warranty, plus I give these guys a lot of business anyway.  I also need new brake pads so I'll have them do that too.  My RRRAAARRRGGG'HHHH is really just a FFFFAAARRRTTT.

I'm telling you, I probably shouldn't have called my dad, because the people were really nice and made sure I had everything I needed, and even gave me more information then what my dad told me to get. The only thing my dad did was stress me out by yelling in my ear to make sure they didn't drive off. He was like, "move your truck so they can't leave," freaked me out.

  That's normal. You probably wanted to hear a familiar and reassuring voice, even if it wound up not being so reassuring. Pak called me right after a fender bender once, and we weren't even married yet (I was still a state away, in fact, so it's not like it was because he needed a ride).

  For my latest RRRRAAARRRGGGHHH moment, I accidentally sprayed oven cleaner on my white linoleum floor the other day when cleaning the stove. I hadn't been aware of it until yesterday when I noticed all these little brown stains and put 2 and 2 together. Any suggestions on how to get them out? I've tried several things already, like detergent and water, acetone and bleach, baking soda and vinegar. Nothing seems to be working. I emailed the company for suggestions already, but it could be a while until I get a response. I don't want to have to strip the wax or, moreover, cut the tile out and replace it.  :P

Consider yourself lucky...when something goes wrong with my truck my dad gives me the manual, the part in question, and says here you go. I've changed our breakpads, I'm constantly rotating my tires, and I've done countless other things. By far the worst is fixing breaks, and changing the engine in the windshield wipers.

But of course this is why I'm such a safe driver...since I have to fix everything, I'm not about to drive recklessly and have to fix the result myself.

I went to the gas station this morning where it happened yesterday and watched the security videos...all you can see is my truck coming into frame, you can't see them at all. So hopefully their insurance company doesn't fight it. It helps that they didn't call and report it. So cross your fingers everybody that this works out for me.

  I hope you're with a big name insurance company. Pak had a wreck in a parking lot a few years ago which totally wasn't his fault. The cop who came to the scene even said it wasn't his fault and even wrote it in his citation. We were with a small insurance company at the time who also agreed it wasn't his fault after review. The lady who hit him had a big national insurance coverage. We thought everything was hunky-dory until we were notified by mail that we wouldn't get the deductible for the repairs for Pak's car back. When we asked why, we were told the companies had settled that both drivers were equally at fault, and Pak was cited for "failing to evade" (he was in the right-most lane abutted to a sidewalk. Where was he supposed to evade to?). Our rates went up, too.

  So we chalked it up either to sexism (Pak was hit by a pregnant lady), or that our insurance company got bullied by the bigger one. When we switched insurances right after that (to a big national one),  the new insurance agent said that that kind of crap happens all the time between small/big companies.  :P

Okay, so we were out of laundry detergent, and I need to do some laundry today, so I offered to go to the store and get some.  My mom told me to get some from the natural food store, but I figured (correctly, as it turns out, but more on that in a second) it would be expensive.  So I went to Kmart, which is where I work, and got some for about $7 with my employee discount.  I brought it home and my mom starts chewing me out for not getting the kind she wanted me to get.  I tried to argue with her, but she wouldn't hear it, so I went back to Kmart, returned the kind I bought there, went to the natural food store, and bought the kind they have there for about $19.  That's $19 for the exact same amount of detergent as the kind from Kmart that cost $7.  Now, I'm not good at math, but I know that a $19 bottle of detergent is more than twice as expensive as a $7 bottle of detergent.  Now you could make the argument, as my mom has, that the more expensive stuff is more concentrated than the cheap stuff.  But if that is the case, then doesn't it make more sense, from a financial standpoint, to just buy two of the cheap kind?  That way, you'd get twice the effectiveness of the cheap stuff and it would still be at a lower price than just one of the expensive stuff.

Or am I totally in the wrong here?  Should I always opt for the more expensive option for everything just on the assumption that more expensive is automatically better in every way, and if I can't afford the more expensive option, I should just do without on the assumption that subpar quality is worse than nothing?  If that sentence makes any sense.

I spent a substantial amount of time working on a project for one of my online courses, Electronic Arts, trying to complete it and still make it look good, because I failed to finish it before I went on vacation last week and fell behind.  It was something I wasn't really all that keen on, either, so I was really struggling with it.  Finally, I manage to get something together, make it look at least presentable, and wrap everything up and submit it for grading.

The thing isn't due until next week.  APPARENTLY.

The professor keeps shuffling around all of these due dates and these projects.  I suppose it's all fine and dandy, as it's a summer course, and these things are marginally compressed and we won't be able to do all of the projects, but I do wish she'd get them all straightened out.  She's already traded out enough projects in and out of the rotation that it's driving me mad.  She's put in one project that I really wanted to do for next week, but now that's been taken out to let last week project, Hyper Reality, have an extended deadline, she's traded the Nonlinear Storyline project in and out of the rotation, and I am just so lost in this class.  I mean, I'm not trying to say that you shouldn't change up your schedule, but can you at least make a plan and stick with it?

Maybe I'm just pouting because for next week's project, I planned to do a mock-advertisement for a wrestling match between Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olbermann, and now instead of that, I'm just sitting around, twiddling my thumbs while I'm waiting for feedback on my professor's take on robo-Yogi getting away with a picnic basket.  Or maybe it's just because I hated how robo-Yogi turned out.  Very sub-par stuff for me.  Or perhaps I'm just hoping the professor never realizes that I'm cheating and not using the Citrix client to make these projects and just using my copy of Adobe Photoshop Element 4.0, because Citrix slows down my computer to a crawl.

Whatevs.

I had a MST3K-themed Mafia game that I was going to present, probably for the 10th as an 'anniversary' of sorts.  Then Team Rad came up with his. RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!   Granted my plot outline was completely different.  I won't give away too much, except  that instead of placing persons/objects in movie(s), I was planning the opposite...  Oh well, this'll give me time to refine it a bit.  In the mean time,  look forward to a couple of other themes that I'm cooking up.  Kaiju fans and those of martial arts action, this may be of interest to you....  *insert cryptic music, followed by menacing, maniacal laughter*

Well it's not as though I'm NOT going to do it.  It just seems that doing two back to back might be a bit overindulgent.  Like I said, I just started out withe the initial idea for several different themes at once.  This way it'll be ever so slightly more polished when I unveil it....

Today's my Birthday, and I'm working in my office Fighting with 3 Different Branches of the Federal Gov't..
(1) USCIS (Immigration) about submitting a different work petition that requires a different Certificate of Labor from the (2) U.S. Dept of Labor but their website is not allowing me to process the labor certification online due to some F'N glitch on their website, so I'm at a stand-still till I here back from there customer service BY EMAIL :grr:, and also the (3) IRS who have just now gotten around to processing my 2007 return and looks like it will be another 2-3 weeks before I get my $1200 rebate check :angry:

dang...well the insurance company for the lady who hit me finally gave us the money to fix our truck, and since I still need a car, they paid for a rental.

well, me and my sister both thought...hmm lets get something with good gas mileage and a working air conditioning system (I'm glad I don't have to drive my truck with lack of air conditioning in the heat now that it is reaching 110 everyday) so my sister picked the car, a cheap little Honda....

This car sucks! I can barely get my legs under the steering wheel, my head is pushing up against the roof, and I'm only 5 foot 8. The mirrors are so tiny so I can't see behind me, and the head rest on the seat is so big I can't look behind me to make up for the lack of good mirrors. I feel like I'm driving blind, plus since my head pushes up on the roof, I actually can't see how fast I'm going since the steering wheel is in the way. Who designed this car? Its obviously made for a tiny 5 foot 2 teenage girl.

Stupid car.

Yeah...we had to scramble to get these guys to even do anything for us. They are a small insurance company based out of utah...they were pains in the butt to deal with.

But I found out the car they got us is a Hyundai Elantra...its sooooo small.

My online courses are driving me mad again.  This time, it's my other course, my UNIX course.  The coursework for the week ends on Tuesday evening, so I'd have expected the professor to put up the work by Wednesday night, at the very latest.

It's Friday morning, and there's no work up, and no sign of the Professor.  I sent her an e-mail wondering, 'ey, WTF?  (In kinder terms, of course.)  There's people on the Discussion Board for the class wondering where she went off to, as well, and they've all sent off e-mails to her wondering where she went, too, so I know it's not just me.  Somebody even e-mailed the Computer Sciences department chair to see what's going on.

I do like online learning.  It's the professors running it I have a few problems with.

So, on DVD Verdict they've posted a review of Student Bodies.....in which the reviewer GIVES AWAY VIRTUALLY EVERY JOKE IN THE MOVIE!!!!!!!!

They gave it a great review...and then describes all of the humor in the film even as he's obviously trying to "sell" the movie to people who have never seen it!   :grr:
Title: Re: RRRRRAAAAARRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!
Post by: Dim of the Yard on June 20, 2008, 09:05:04 AM
I hate it when reviewers give too much away, too.  It's bad enough when they give away too much in terms of comedy, but at least with comedy, you've got delivery and timing to sell the joke.  A minor victory, but it's still something.  It's even worse when they give away major plot points for dramas or mysteries.  And if that isn't an awkward segue into a true story, I'll eat one of my pugs.

My old college newspaper was very skilled at the method of "review by summary."  It was terrible, especially during Spring 2007, when the theater troupe I was involved in did City of Angels.  The musical's basically a play within a play.  The main play's about a writer who's signed himself a deal in Hollywood, and we get to have fun watching all of his escapades in that remark, and the play within the play is the movie that is being made, a film noir about a private detective pursuing a murder case.  When the newspaper wrote the review, they gave away every single plot point, from who the writer cheated on his wife with, to the major plot twists in the mystery.  The only "review" part of the review was a three-sentence paragraph essentially saying that the costumes were good, the set was good, and the acting was good.

We at the drama club were ready to strangle the reviewer.

We have a warranty on the system, so I called our Tech Rep in Columbia,SC and he regreted to inform me that the warranty Does Not cover the camera cause they Know it's a piece of Sh*t!
He said the camera has been discontinued and he had a newer/replacement Canon model that would be between $500-$600..
For a Fuckin 2 Mega Pixel Camera??!! :angry:

Luckily, I have a 4 year old Visioneer 2 mega pixel camera that's been sitting around for a couple years, and after replacing the 2 AA bateries, and getting the ID program to finally recognize it in the system, I'm back up and running after about a 3 hour down time *whew*

It's going to hit 87 degrees here today. I have no AC in my 3rd floor apartment which gets blasted by direct sunlight from about 3pm to sundown, which is around 8:30pm. The apartment should reach a cozy 90-some-odd degrees, melting some shit, but hopefully not my new PS3 or the DVD I so carelessly left on top of it this morning before I went to work. Well, at least it will be night... oh wait. My apartment retains heat and takes about 2 days to cool down.

I need to find me a woman with AC.

Much as I predicted, our swamp cooler stopped working yesterday. Pak and I awoke to the same smell that a box of band aids has. We at first thought it was outside, but I kept having the nagging feeling it was in our house. Then it got hot in the house yesterday, and we (I with far less faith because I hate our cooler more than I've ever hated any other machine ever) chalked it up to outside humidity. Today it was only 20% and the house was still hot.

So I figure we'll be drowning our entire stimulus check on the piece of crap up on our roof before the summer's out. The damage today was $160+ to fix the water pump and a belt (I called the water pump when the thing was pumping in uncooled air).

The good thing is that Pak and I made a bet about the cooler, and I won because I counted on it breaking down and Pak attempted to be more optimistic (despite its breaking down at least twice every summer for 5 years now). So now he has to make me a pie!!!  And I can buy another snake!! WAHOO!

Coincidentally, the way they make whiskey sours is by siphoning off the whiskey bathwater after bta's been soaking in it.

Well I ended drinking three beers (pints), but I did buy more, so I was still able to stop.

Today's goal: No Beer! (and baring that, only two pints)

CD. There's a movie, but I've never seen it available on video (my copy is taped off cable).

I did a load of laundry last night, my little brother decided he would do one too, after I went to bed last night.

I woke up this morning to find all of my laundry wrinkled and spread across the laundry room floor. You see when my brother threw his stuff into the dryer, he took mine out, and put it in the clean clothes basket, without folding anything. And then all of my little siblings while getting ready for school today, spread my laundry everywhere when looking for socks.

What really makes me angry, was that the load my little brother did last night was for his jeans. And when I put my load in the dryer, I noticed he had a load of dark shirts in the dryer, that I folded for him when I put my clothes in. So even though I folded his clothes for him, he threw all of my clothes into a wrinkly heap of a pile.

I tried to do a little salvaging for my stuff, but when looking for everything, I couldn't find a few of my shirts. It seems that they have fallen into the laundry black hole that the other sock in a given pair will fall into.

I'm very angry.

*sigh*  I just need to know there's an end in sight. 

Oh and I'm off the coffee-wagon.  Sorry, hormones, but my quad-shot peppermint latte was more important than you this morning.

one funny thing about writers I've noticed...you can have the best job in the world, and it could still be soul crushing, creativity zapping, etc...since the beginning of time writers have been using their abilities to not have real jobs.

And it has worked for us so far. I mean I work at a videographer company, doing video editing for commercials, and for weddings and etc...really cool stuff. But I still hate it because I don't get to write my books during it. Oh well, the day will come when I will be a writer full time, and not have to worry about pleasing a boss, or getting to work on time.

The one thing that I hate about my job is that there is nobody my age that works here.  They're all at least 20 years older than me.  So, when it comes to socializing I'm basically pushed to the wayside.  Never have I worked at a place and felt so alone.

Even when my co-workers talk to me they have to remind me of how much older they are than me.  When they first meet me what do you suppose is the first thing they say?  "I have a kid that's about your age."  Ah, thanks.  Thanks for telling me that you look at me as more of a kid than a co-worker.  Thanks for telling me that you really can't relate to me in any way, shape, or form.

Other than that I enjoy my job.  I get paid well and my boss is flexible when it comes to giving me time off.  The work itself is good.  But it would be quite awesome if they finally started hiring people in their 20's.

I don't know what I'm going to do when I get back from my mission. I'll be quitting my job here before I leave, but this is a one time deal, I doubt they will hire me back when I get home. So I'm wondering if I'm going to have to live as a destitute till I get a couple of my books in publishable form (which is hopeful thinking since who knows If I will even get published after that). Or if I will have to get a dead end job until I can make the transition into professional writer.

....we'll see. I just don't want to be living with my parents for very long when I get back, since I know it drove my brother crazy having to live here till he got on his feet, after living two years without a leash on a mission.

I'm sure next year, when gas prices stabilize and people get used to 3.50 or so a gallon, they'll put out another SUV design that sucks down even more gas.  The car companies don't seem to learn very fast unless Congress makes them change.  Congress needs to crack the whip on fuel-efficiency standards.

Ok people are always saying that it's good to volunteer. However it'd be nice if when one offers to do that, the organizations would actually contact you back with some sort of details or something that shows they actually might want your help.

So there are a couple of churches in the arch diocese of Detroit that I have offered to help out at (I have a week off and it thought, why not?). I made contact with them weeks ago and only today did one of them reply, with a vague "I guess you can help if you want, just turn up if you feel like it" e-mail.

Well gee thanks, I guess you apparently don't need my help after all.

Same goes for political campaigns. I'm quite articulate at times and I'm a good organizer so I thought I'd see if my candidate of choice would like a little help on his White House run. So today, as I'm about to head out the door for part one of my yearly physical (stage one: Skin Cancer check) I hear the phone ringing. It's the campaign. So I tell them I can't talk right now but I give them a time when I will be available today for them to call me back. And that time was hours ago and no phone call.

Honestly, what's the point of volunteering? :(

So, I am in Day 2 of vacation, about to head out the door for a noon showing of The Hulk at the Alamo draft house, when my phone rings.   Why, it is my manager calling, this cannot be good news.

Seems our wonder Indian Delivery Center decided that long running jobs that just hang and not create any entries is fine, nothing to worry about.   Heck, let the job that normally runs for 3 hours run for 18 hours and do shit about it.   Oh, that is close critical job and now everything is delayed?  Oh shoot, maybe they should have not ignored it.    Several follow up calls will be needed.

Oh, for this other project we have to have a SAP job updated to account for a new company code.   I gave idiot proof directions and input files for testing to our indian developer and functional expert before I left on Tuesday and said it has to be done and tested by Friday.    I get another call while I am on a call on the above issue from our US development lead saying that the guys in India have not started on it yet.    Naturally, they have gone home for the day so I leave a voice mail to both of them saying this HAS to be ready by 6am Monday morning and they get to work the weekend to get it that way.

So I really had a hell of a week. I started a new job as a billing clerk, and apparently the boss thought I would somehow be able to know everything about a billing system I'd never interacted with. We discussed that I would need training during my interview before I was even hired. So why I am I suddenly expected to know pages upon pages of jargon and hundreds of procedure codes I've never seen before like the back of my hand, along with tons of ridiculous insurance laws no normal human can possibly comprehend within 4 days with only spotty on-the-job training?

Every time I walked through the door this week, everyone there was surprised to see me. This place has, evidently, a history of having its employees just leave and never come back out of frustration.

Strangely enough, yours truly, the person who did ALL THE FUCKING WORK, was not invited. 

And it's all these stupid superior rich-people corporate bullshit things like this that reminds me I either need to get hired at Film Threat or just get my Masters and start teaching already because I cannot do this anymore.

I am sure that you will get a "Performance Award" e-mail telling you (in a very generic way) how you added value to the firm.

My missus' job has these award they give out all the time to people who have contributed to the success of the company, or that's what they say.

Once after she managed to score a big new account, they gave it to the person who made some copies for her because she didn't have time to do that because of scoring the big new account.

The awardee was good friends with the HR director  ::)

I know it's probably not feesable at the moment, but when I started my business in 2002, I was still working for others, but then when I made that 'leap of faith' to 100% self-employment back in the beginning if 2006, it was the best decision I've ever made! 8)

Well, I've been venting pretty much non-stop for the past six weeks about work. (Quick version: our new online store is losing money on every sale. But we're making it up in volume! And the boss has been out of the office so the accounting staff and me can't sit him down and explain that yes, there is a problem.)

But that's work. I'm venting about the personal stuff and the small things like lightbulbs are more aggravating to me than the bigger problems in my life.

Boy! In my Spanish services business, we handle a lot of various issues..
Well, for the last few days we've worked with a travel agency in Charlotte to get one of our customers home to Mexico via US Airways.
No issues with the agency as they've done well. But we all know (or hear about) the strict requirements for baggage and other BS with the airlines.. :grr:

So we got this Spanish speaking customer a plane reservations squared away, and well, this.. Not so intelligent' customer for some reason thought that we were gonna take him to the airport! That of course didn't happen ::) So he missed his flight..
He came back yesterday to rebook another flight. Again, got everything squared away on the reservation and then we went ahead and took him and dropped him off at the Charlotte airport at 6am this morning..
Well guess what?! Not even 30 minutes ago, he shows back up at our office.. They wouldn't let him on the plane because his check-in bags weight 80lbs, and 85lbs respectively; the limit is of course 50lbs per bag, and we told him this 3 times!! :angry:
Also, his immigration status probably played a factor as well as all he had was a birth certificate :-X

EDIT: We got his immigration paperwork straight at the Mexico Consulate in Charlotte, and he has yet another flight arranged for first thing in the morning,But we'll be going back up to the airport this evening to pick up my wife's niece flying in from Mexico this evening, and this guy will hitch a ride with us up to the airport and stay the night there so he'll be able to get checked in (hopefully) in the morning and Be Gone!

If he doesn't make it through this time, we're discussing getting his dumb ass on a damn bus to take him to Mexico, and we'll just use the damn plane ticket for ourselves!

At this point I try not to go nuts and I tell him that Antoine has a planned task to do and he is not answering his phone and everyone is sitting on their hands.   He wont let me call and wake up his back up in india to do the task and says "well, let us just wait another couple hours".!?!?!?!?!

I guess this idiot does not understand the concept of project work.

Stupid Micro Center. I went two weeks ago to buy a video card they had listed on special. Despite their computer showing several in inventory, they couldn't find it. So, I went ahead and placed an order for it on their web site. However, I chose the "Pick Up At Store" option, thinking that, like most retailers with an internet arm, they would send one to the store if it wasn't in stock; and, unfortunately, what they do is, if it's not in stock at the store, they just cancel your order, without even asking you if you want to change it to have the item shipped to you. So, I waited to see if they had a comparable card in the circular which came out this week. Whaddaya know? It's the same goddamned video card for the same price, as a clearance item. This time, when I put the SKU# for the card into the search function on their web site, it returns as not found. To add insult to injury, the local store still shows half a dozen in their computer, while actually having not one they can lay their hands on (in what I imagine is no coincidence at all, they had six of the PCI-Express version of the exact same card on their shelves; hmmmmm).

Hell.

Earlier this week (Monday), the local news reported this story:
Quote
"DENVER -- U.S. Marshals, along with FBI agents and members of the Safe Streets Task Force, are searching for a notorious "spam king" who walked away from a federal prison camp over the weekend.
Edward "Eddie" Davidson, 35, was serving 21 months in the minimum security facility in Florence, Colo., for sending hundreds of thousands of spam e-mails. He had pleaded guilty to tax evasion and falsifying e-mail headers."

Since then, I've been making fun of this as, well, the idea of an FBI task force out to find the vicious "Spam King" just seemed ridiculous. "Look out! He might send out 40,000 emails!" Yesterday, we get this story:

Quote
Escaped "Spam King" Edward "Eddie" Davidson, his wife, and 3-year-old daughter were found slain outside a farm house Thursday east of Denver in an apparent murder-suicide.

He had returned to the house that he had owned before the spam charges, and fatally shot his wife, 3 year old daughter and shot his teenage daughter in the neck before turning the gun on himself.

Now, I feel like a complete heel for joking about the guy, especially since it's now beginning to look like he had been holding his family hostage for the past couple of days making their last days on Earth a living hell.

Insignificant at best RARGH!, but worth a minor vent.  It's more of a Grr!

All right, so I'm working on a big project.  It's a nonlinear project where I can make up basically any kind of story that I want.  And I've got the story out of the way, I got permission to use the Marx Brothers characters (it falls under Fair Use, as it's educational), and it's an absolutely fun story.  I'm working it out more or less as a comic strip with these guys, and I think I've got a good handle on the dialog, etc.  It's so much fun!  I planned to spend the whole day storyboarding the panels out so I'd have something to show the Professor, rather than just a giant wall of text.

And it turns out that today is the same day as the Zombie Film Festival.  It would have had a brain eating competition and everything!  It would have been so cool, and I got to stay home and draw stick figures!  ARGH!

I went to my local Blockbuster Video to finally use a gift card that I'd won a while back.  I foolishly thought that it had no expiration date.  I mean, someone actually spent actual money to buy it,and that should make it worth something, barring the whole Blockbuster corporation going out of business that is.  How wrong I was!   It seem that if I'd taken an electron microscope, and looked at the fine print on the back, I would've discovered that the card becomes null and void after 24 months of inactivity!  ARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGHHHH!!!!!

Gift Cards are one of the most awesome capitalistic tricks I've ever seen. If you buy your friend a $50 gift card, they have $50 from you guaranteed. If the person you get it for doesn't spend it all, they get to keep the extra money. If they spend more, they got even MORE money from the guy you bought it for.

There was a great quote in the old Dilbert cartoon about gift cards. (After Dilbert gets one for his mom)

Congratulations, son. You've spent your money on something just like money, but far more limiting!

I've been reading a book called The Vanishing Automobile and Other Urban Myths.  Basically, it's about the general bullshit trends in urban planning (density good, roads bad, light rail is a viable model for post 19th-Century cities - damn the track record, full speed ahead!).  They call it "smart growth," but judging from what I read in the book, it was pretty much the dumbest thing I'd ever heard.  I thought the book seemed a bit biased, so I checked the Internet to see the other side of the story...and I found NOTHING.  There was pretty much NO DATA that countered the arguments I had read.  The info I found was either already addressed by the book or was just dogma unsupported by facts.

And it makes me really, really pissed off about the billion-dollar train the State of Minnesota just approved.  It runs right down the middle of a busy street (which is already well-served by buses), will almost certainly contribute to congestion, and will result in a reduction in express bus service between Minneapolis and St. Paul, despite the fact that the express buses are FASTER AND DON'T REQUIRE TWO ALREADY EXISTING LANES OF TRAFFIC TO BE ELIMINATED!  GRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!

Not to mention the fact that, if they wanted a train so badly, they could have used existing right of way tracks instead of undergoing intensive and disruptive construction in the middle of University Avenue!  But NOOOOOOOOO!  It's sexier to have the train go right in front of the storefronts!  Never mind the fact that the light rail won't attract enough riders to carry two lanes of traffic, and will increase POLLUTION due to more time spent in traffic!  (Seriously, there's a road downtown where an already-existing train goes through, and the traffic is a NIGHTMARE)!  HULK SMASH!!!

Of course, light rail isn't the only issue here.  Population density is also a big issue with these wonks.  They want to INCREASE it, regardless of what the public actually wants.  ("What?  You mean you DON'T want to give up your car, privacy, and personal space?  You live in the suburbs by CHOICE?  Well, we can't have that - we'll have to take away your pesky choices through new zoning regulations!")  Jesus Titfucking Christ!

I apologize for ranting.  The book covers a really complicated and nuanced issue - every city is different, so there's no point in arguing over urban planning over the internet.  There is no single, one-size-fits-all solution.  Nor are people's driving habits likely to change for ANY reason other than income or gas prices.  To make a long story short, the things I've learned are making my blood boil.  Rant off.

When I went to sync up my iPhone, it said there was a new 2.1 software for it and asked if I wanted to install.    Well, everything on my phone was fine, I am heading out to Las Vegas on Friday and I really need my phone, but I went ahead and updated anyway.

ARRRRGHHHHHHHHHHHHH

After downloading and the install almost complete, I got the famous "unknown errror 9", so I just went to reboot, but my phone is stuck in the restore mode.   So, I have to restore the phone to its orginal settings (removing all contacts, calendar apps, music, settings, etc.), but hey, such is life.

Now the damn phone gets the "unknown error 9" while trying to restore.

So I have a non-working phone and nothing I can do about it.

After 30-45 minutes with customer support and still nothing, they set up an appointment with me at my local apple store for tomorrow at 10am.

Damn, I just want a working phone.

Moral of story, never upgrade software unless you HAVE to.

Oh You... ::)

Well, my RRAARGH is with Mexico's Customs dept.. if you want to call it that :grr:
I sent a box to Mexico over 2 1/2 weeks ago and it's been sitting in Mexico customs since July 23 and they won't release it because of a couple computers I built out of spare parts and the parts were made in China (of course), and Mexico will not allow anything made in China into their country because it's crippling their economy, but on top of that, they needed 2 forms of identification of my wife so she sent them her Mexico passport and her US passport and since the last names are different (my last name on the US passport), they still wouldn't release it to her.

She's returning here to the US tomorrow and had to file a return shipment claim today and it will probably take a week or so to return but in the meantime I will probable be billed for return shipping plus possible customs duty fees! I paid $285.50 to ship it down there! It was never delivered to it's finall destination and yet I still may get billed this Shit??!! WTF ???

All I have to say is I see more and more why Mexico is a 3rd world country because if the ignorant idiots they have making their moronic laws :angry:
We do need to just take over the country again like we did back in 1848 during the Mexican-American war, but this time, Keep It and not walk away! >:D

Ah, my ARRRRRGGGGHHH has been turned into a WHOOOOOOOO now.

While at the Apple store, I decided to just upgrade to the 3G model as they had a ton of them in stock.

The apple store opens at 9 and the mall does not open until 10.    The only ones there were the mall walkers and me.    They were all eyeing me and getting into defensive positions just in case I was a gang banger I guess.

Happy, happy, happy.

I don't know if this is a "RRRRRAAAAARRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!", it's more of an *Incoherent Nervous Muttering*, but since there isn't an *Incoherent Nervous Muttering* thread, I thought I'd post it here.

I have to go to traffic court tomorrow.  Basically what happened was I was trying to turn left onto a main road from a side street at a stoplight when it was raining.  The light was green, but I tried to put on my brakes as I was turning, but I couldn't get any traction, and somehow my foot ended up on the accelerator, and I ended up crashing into the curb, overcompensated with my steering, and went over the center, went over the curb on the left side of the road, and ended up in the parking lot of a Lutheran church.

The policeman who showed up charged me with failure to maintain a single lane of traffic and gave me a ticket for the same.  Though the one part that I guess is a "RRRRRAAAAARRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!" is the fact that I couldn't just go to the courthouse and pay it off and have it done with, I have to go to court, since it was a traffic collision, even though my car was the only one involved.

Infections of the hands suck...everybody can see it. A few years ago I went ice fishing, and because my gloves were making it too hard to fish...I took them off. They got severely wind burnt, and started peeling for about two months, I was in the 7th grade, so I was deeply self conscious about the entire thing. What really capped it off, was that going to a place like school that is filled with germs when my hands were exposed because of the peeling, made me get about twenty warts on my hands after they stopped peeling. Icing on the cake eh? So I was even more traumatized and kept my hands in my pockets at all times. After a month of freezing those bastages with wart freezing stuff...they fell off.

End result...I'm a severe germaphobe. I keep hand sanitizer with me at all times, and I don't touch anything in public restrooms (I use a paper towel to flush the toilet, and to turn on the faucet, and to even grab other paper towels. :sigh:

There was an article in the newspaper last week about a school that installed "green windows" to cut down on electricity bills. You know what these green windows were? They were just big fucking windows that let in more light so they didn't have to use the electric lights as much. They didn't come from a no-landfill factory; they didn't have little solar panels built in that powered the microwave in the teacher's lounge; they didn't turn sludge into drinking water. They were just big.

You know what we used to call big fucking windows before all this "green" bullshit started? Big fucking windows. I am so goddamned sick of the word "green". It would be perfectly appropriate and accurate to call those windows "practical" or even "energy-saving", but "green" gives it this obnoxious self-righteousness that a big fucking window doesn't really deserve.

Actually, that "green" window will just emit more heat in the winter than any standard window and force you to burn more oil to heat your house. So go tell them to break the window and stuff the results up their collective asses.

Plus, you're not really mad at the benefit the windows may or may not bring.  You're mad at the branding they use to sell the windows as "good" to the public.  People are lazy and stupid, so buzz words are used to easily explain things.  Doesn't matter what subject we're talking about.  The flowery nomenclature is prevalent everywhere.

SUNUVA...!!! :angry:
I've been working on trying to sell my brother-in-law's 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x2 for the last month or so, for $3250 obo. We traded 'title for title' for a 1998 Ford F-150 I bought last month so he can take it to Mexico.
A guy came by this morning to test drive it, and the damn thing won't downshift to 1st gear from a dead stop! It's an automatic transmission that my brother-in-law had rebuilt in Charlotte a year and 4 months ago; 15,000 miles back, and guess what?? The warranty was good for 1 year or 12,000 miles  :grr:
It will go from a dead stop in 3rd/drive gear, but won't down shift automatically like its supposed to anymore. I can manually downshift it to 2nd and it goes in that gear, but manually down shift it to 1st gear, and it stays in 2nd!
I even recommended a place here in Rock Hill that I've delt with back when the transmission failed the first time, but he felt confortable with his mechanic up there.. ::)

So, now he's got two options: Spend another $1500.00+ to Rebuild the transmission again so I can sell it (cause I'm not gonna spend the money to rebuild it again), or I can trade it in on a car lot for something else like a 1999 minivan of similar value that can be allowed to cross the Mexican border!

Well, come to find out the Jeep transmission problem wasn't as bad as I thought..

On the way to get the title straight on the Jeep, I had to drive it to the DMV so they could verify the VIN, and on the way, it shifted and downshifted just fine!
After completing the title transfer at the DMV, I went ahead and took it to my buddy's shop and they hooked their diagnostic computer up to it to see if there was any error codes, and sure enough, there were 2 transmissions codes both reflecting the governer inside was sticking, so the computer put the transmission into 'safe mode'.
After clearing the codes, and taking out a quart of transmission fluid, they adding a quart of Trans-X transmission treatment and it's shifting Perfect like it should be!

So, it's back up for sale! :highfive:
Anybody Interested?! 8)

I guess theoretically, it could be modified, but yeah the shifter is in the floor and not on the steering column

Well after watching quite a few news clips from the DNC Convention I've been convinced to register as an Independant. A damned bunch of heathens. tearing each other apart. As for the group known as Clintons 4 McCain (http://www.clintons4mccain.com/)... talk about butt hurt losers.

EDIT: After looking some more through the Clintons 4 McCain site I get the feeling Jerome Corsi (best known for the Swift Vets and POWs for Truth of 2004) has something to do with it.

I wasn't talking about any campaign groups just the nuts that show up to the convention, representing God knows who. I wouldn't call the McCain campaign stable when they have to correct their own candidate on where he stands on issues.

Dammit!  :grr:
So Glad to have Abundant rainfall, Flash Flood watches/warnings in our area as the remnants of TS Fay pass over our area, but this morning around 6am EST, I heard a limb snap and crash in my yard.. somewhere..

First thing I thought of was my truck parked in my back yard got hit, but luckily, not. But after venturing over to my vacant lot where my dogs live, I find this 'small tree' of a limb from one of my big Oak trees came down, crushing part of my property line fence and destroying their large dog house.
One of the Huskys was still inside, not hurt luckily..

This has been happening a lot around here lately; the trees are weak from the prolonged drought, and any additional weight, like water on leaves and branches, is causing the limbs to snap off rather easily :-\

You try to hit as many locations in the same day, day after day and keep it all straight all the time.  Every politician has done it at least once.

Give him props for getting the names of the people who were hosting him correct (and before you try to claim that was off of a cue card then why wasn't the name of the city on there, too?)

In fact, kind of shows that individuals are his priority.....

I watch the speeches at the conventions - especially the Republicans.

It's like what George Carlin once said about those people who say "It's the quiet ones you gotta watch."

"If you've got one guy at a bar, quietly reading a book and another guy in the same bar banging a machette on the table screaming, "I'm gonna kill the next motherfucker who comes in here!".....who you gonna watch?"

That's how I feel about keynote speeches at Republican conventions.

Nah, the battery just gave out.   I wish car batteries gave you a warning when they are about to roll over and die.    Fortunately, I was at home when it happened and not out in the middle of nowhere.

I called AAA, they came over and gave my car a jump and I drove it to an autoshop that is about 3 miles from my house.   Fortunately, BMW has not changed batteries since 98 and they had one in stock and I was out of there in 30 minutes.    While waiting, I watched a couple of Josh's shorts onmy iPhone.

Pretty smooth process...... sadly, the grocery store errand for chili fixins (recipe and photos to be posted soon) did not go as smooth.

I swear, there should be separate stores for males with extra wide aisles so the morons (I am a guy, but I dont do this) who just leave their cart in the middle of the aisle, blocking it for everyone, dont cause more trouble.   I swear, it was idiot central day.

As I was in the crosswalk leaving the store, some bitch in her giant SUV and on her cell phone squealed her brakes and started honkng at me to move along.   Gee, that ALWAYS works with me..... yes ma'am, sorry for using the cross walk.    Oh wait, no it DOESNT work on me.   So naturally, I proceeded to walk extra slow.   She then starts to roll her car into the cross walk and I turn the cart facing her just aching for her to come closer so I can "defend myself" and smash out her front light.   Sadly, she must have read my eyes, stopped and proceeded to stare away from me.   Man, I SO wanted to smash her SUV.

Alas, only one of them is Bollywood (which are relatively easy to deal with); the rest are in Tamil and Telegu, which means wild variations in quality and arrival times.   :P

So you didn't eat Southern Food then did you? You know, you could have maybe tried something from the menu that you'd not tried before.

It was basically a home-made version of Cracker Barrel.  They had no less than 3 kinds of "slaw" on their "sides" menu.  I ask you: Does anyone like ONE kind of slaw, much less 3?
Ooh, ooh, Me, I love slaw.

I think Mark Kermode is an insufferable douchebag.  There, I said it.

http://www.youtube.com/v/30HE1Kf9px8&hl=en&fs=1

British people are more likely to have an idea of who he is, but if you don't know, he's a  film critic.  In fact, he's pretty much the poster boy for everything people hate about film critics.

It's not so much the things he says as the way he says them.  I mean, I thought Pan's Labyrinth should have won Best Picture, too, but I'm not a total asshole about it.  It's the sort of typical "Well, Hollywood gets it wrong because they aren't as smart as me" attitude that really sticks in my craw.  I HAD gone through more of his reviews and was intending to go on a full-on tirade over why I hate him so much, but I figured, why bother?  He's not worth my time.

Let me sum it up in a nutshell, though.  He has a PhD IN ENGLISH and still calls himself "Doctor."  He doesn't like the original Star Wars OR the first Pirates movie.  He's simply allergic to any film that isn't either foreign or "serious" (unless it isn't popular to like it, like Basic Instinct 2, in which case he will praise it for being unoriginal and following genre conventions).  He's just another arrogant prick who thinks he's witty when he isn't.

So, "Doctor" Kermode, you, sir, are an asshole.  That's all I have to say.

There a bloke at work who does that, his is in statistics or something (and the bloke can't write a coherent sentence to save his life).

It's odd how down everyone is on Imrahil's dislike of his lunch.

In any case, I gotta say I hate Wisconsin food. See, you may think, "Oh, Wisconsin. Beer and cheese, right?"
Wrong.
It's bacon. Bacon and ham. We put it in fucking everything. Frikkin German influence.

I think that counts as blasphemy on this board.    :D

I thought that was kinda hilarious.  His description of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley onscreen together was very funny.

Bastard has my headphones though.

Yep.  I changed the video to something that I think better displays his contempt for pretty much everybody else.

Wait, what exactly is wrong with a PhD being addressed as "doctor"?  What do you think the "D" stands for?

Well, technically, you can call yourself "Doctor" with any old PhD, but it just seems a tad pretentious to do so if you're not a doctor of medicine or a scientist of some sort.  I mean, "Hello, I'm Dr. Reginald Q. Gayballs, professor of Home Economics," just sounds kind of wrong.

It seems more like you're hating on the South itself, and not just the food.  (which is totally understandable)

Oh, really?

Dude, get over yourself. I'm going to be a DOCTOR when I finish this degree, and people will address me as such.

Will you still be a prince?

That sucks.  I think I'd prefer the prince gig... better pay, less work.

Yeah, Dr. Indiana Jones--what a pretentious ASSHOLE.

Well, first of all, he's a field archaeologist.  That is an acceptable profession for calling yourself "doctor."  The term "doctor" fits in this case because archaeology is a science of sorts.

Also, he's cool enough to make up for it.

Does Kermode really enforce the use of doctor in his name? I've been at a Q&A with Laura Linney and he was hosting and he was pretty cool.  I like the story he tells about Blue Velvet.  Where he walked out halfway through and gave it a damning review, upon the review's release, someone who'd read it came up to him, gave him a load of abuse and then headbutted him.  Kermode thought that if Blue Velvet could cause such an extreme reaction, it was worth his time to watch it again.  I think he ended up loving it.

It's a bit of a shibboleth; insisting upon people calling you doctor betrays a certain lack of ease over your position, it's also why Surgeons go by Mr or Mrs.

They know what they are, they don't need people to constantly be reminded of it.

Effortless superiority and all that  ;)
