Found out one of my ex coworkers was finally fired for missing too many days (he had been there 22 years), and another that was fired last year was arrested for meth and other drug possessions..
Not surprised by either of these  :-\

I wrote what my first web application.  It's a PHP script that plays a dice game called Two Dice Pig.

It's primitive, but it's a start.

It's set up so that the odds are pretty heavily in the human player's favor.  The rules are explained in the link so I won't bother to repeat them here.  Humans can go as many times as they want until they choose to pass or roll a one on either or both of the dice.  Each computer player randomly selects 1 to 5 turns and rolls until that count is up or a 1 is rolled.  So a human player can get a lot more rolls.

Looks like some of my images have somehow been linked to an 'adult' website so hence the lack of my images posting..
Quote
A number of our users' images had been posted on a notorious adult website, and many without permission.
Your account was tagged as having images linked out to that website. In order to combat the illicit propagation of users' private photos, we forced the "exceeded bandwidth" status onto the images in your account.
I've put in a request to turn this off for your account. It should be back to normal shortly.
If you believe this was a mistake, and you have no such images, we apologize for the inconvenience!
And now they've been restored ::)

Adult websites?  Like nudie pics?  Do you have any content that could remotely be considered "adult"?

One of the guys in my bullshit business class started complimenting me on my writing.  We have to do these weekly discussion board posts (it's not an online class, but our lazy teacher figures this is a way to create meaningless metrics to grade us by so that she doesn't have to do any actual work).  I write some pretty detailed ones; they come out to about a page and a half single spaced.  I liked the compliments at first, but they're starting to cross that line from "simple compliment" to "borderline ass-kissing".

Another part involves responding to others posts in a "substantive" way.  I got sick of doing this and figured the teacher wasn't paying attention anyway, so I wrote this response to a post about some boring-as-shit current event post about something vaguely related to network security.  Here it is, hidden under spoiler tags because it's really long and really boring:

Like I said, I'm sick of doing these and didn't have anything substantive to say, so I was just honest.

I really wish I had a more substantive response but I just can't think of anything interesting to say.  I feel like I've been hearing too much about network security lately and the topic just bores me so.  Good post though.

Kiss-ass had this to say:

Mike,
Perhaps you should install WordPress on your server machine and start blogging about network security and share your expertise for free with others. I think you would become an expert authority and celebrity blogger by sharing your knowledge with others. I wouldn't be surprised if you made the front page of the ZDNet or the homepage of PC Magazine online.

I gagged it was so over the top.

This guy is one of those guys who runs a blog and is trying to make a living out of it, so he's often talking about blogging and affiliate marketing.

Just realized I went up a level.  Sweet!

Will miss my Road House one.  What is does the FBI pays me to surf pay homage to?  Can't figure it out.
