Bad Day

After my thursday, this is all i have to say...


Yo 6 o'clock every morning you waking up yawning
To the sound of your alarm clock alarm
About an hour from now
You should be at the place of employment
Which is annoying cause it's so boring
Your co-workers are talking too loud for you to ignore them
It affects your occupational performance
You wonder why your work load is so enormous
Because your boss just laid off three quarters of the whole office
People get depressed, they get ulcers
From the stress that the corporate environment causes
Regardless of how you ultimately wanna solve this
Seems to me like you've got one of four choices:
You could take a new job offer for more chips
Stick it out a little longer or forfeit
But my advice to anybody that wants to quit
It'll feel much better if you say it like this:

Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin here no more
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin here no more
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin here no more
Take this job, take this job, take this job and shove it Posted by Picasa

Electrical interferance....

So yeah...havent posted lately, ive been feverishly trying to deal with a few issues of note.

1. Electrical issues in my apartment. My lights have been dimming, very loud humming through my speakers/phone/microphone/etc in my apartment. Something was really wrong. My complex thinks they have it fixed, but well see.

2. The humming has made it completely impossible for me to record my podcast or use skype/ventrillo so i have pretty much been out of communication with people. It seems that the electrical system killed the DSP(digital signal processor) on my nice plantronics USB headset, so i had to get a new one. It wasnt that bad, it let me go to Fry's :) and i got a 2nd cheaper mono headset mic for my PC to use for ventrillo for WoW.

However, while trying to find the source of the humming(before i knew it was my mic) I tore my entire office apart in my apartment.

Office BEFORE i took everything apart trying to find the humming...

Office AFTER i took everything apart trying to find the humming...

3. Started a guild in WoW on the Horde side of Whisperwind with the creators of Taverncast and World of Warcast. For some reason, they decided to make me guild leader >.> Its pretty awesome, in 3 days we already have 30 members comprised just of listeners to their 2 shows and mine. Im having a blast doing it, even though i just hit level 50 with my paladin on Windrunner.

4. I think my iPod mini is toast. Walking into work today it now just blinks an apple logo, clicks, shuts off, powers on, and blinks the apple logo. Rinse. Repeat. Time to take it into the apple store...

Other than that, things are ok. Been sick for about a week and a half now, and work has been nuts. One day at a time. One day at a time.

har har har....

Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Football 5.0, Hunting and Fishing 7.5, and Racing
I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but the uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0. Please help!


A Troubled User.


Dear Troubled User:

This is a very common problem that men complain about.

Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is just a Utilities and Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING!!! It is also impossible to delete Wife 1. 0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0. It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system once installed.

You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this. Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony-Child Support. I recommend that you keep Wife.0 and work on improving the situation. I suggest installing the background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate software augmentation.

The best course of action is to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE because ultimat! ely you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system
will return to normal anyway.
Wife 1.0 is a great program, but it tends to be very high maintenance. Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs, such as Clean and Sweep 3.0, Cook It 1.5 and Do Bills 4.2.

However, be very careful how you use these programs. Improper use will cause the system to launch the program Nag Nag 9.5. Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of Wife 1.0 is to purchase additional
software. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0 !
WARNING!!! DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3. This application is not supported by Wife 1.0 and will cause irreversible damage to the operating system.

Best of luck,
Tech Support

One of the most amazing stories I've heard...

From Drudge Report

Tue Sep 13 2005 19:59:07 ET

Eight bottlenose dolphins that were washed out of their Mississippi aquarium pool during Hurricane Katrina have been found alive, huddled together in the fetid waters off Gulfport, Miss, the BOSTON GLOBE will report on Wednesday.

Now, deeply worried about the dolphins' chances of survival, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officials and aquarium biologists are racing to rescue the weak and wounded animals - some of which have never before ventured into the wild.

"These animals found us, they came back after Katrina ... they came home," said Moby Solangi, president of the Marine Life Oceanarium in Gulfport. "All eight are together. It's the most wonderful news."

Established in 1956, the facility suffered catastrophic damage in the storm. Along with the dolphins, 19 sea lions were swept out of their pools when a giant storm surge engulfed the Oceanarium. Five of them are still missing.

Been pretty busy...

Hello all, I know it has been a while since a post of note. Ive been putting in some wild hours at work, and been pretty busy outside of work as well. What have I been doing?

1. Podcasting. My podcast has been doing very well, i have about 200 subscribers right now and growing every day. The recent trend is that i double listeners about every 3-4 days. Im very happy with this, and I've only put out 2(technically 3) episodes. Im working on episode 3 as we speak, and it should be the best one yet. Ive changed the podcasting model around, since most casts are either a guy talking at you or 2 people having a discussion. Ive tried to innovate a bit by asking podcasters from shows i listen to to come on my show, interview them, have them weigh in on some things they may not cover in their own show. The first week I had Jamie Jordan of guest host, the next week I had a short interview with 2 guys from I wont say who the guests are this week, but I will say that if you are a star wars galaxies fan, you should definately listen in! Check it out at, or search for GameCast Online in the podcast section of iTunes.

2. Playing with my niece. Emily is seriously adorable. I have some more pictures I'll throw up soon of her that my sister and I took, but shes growing so fast and is becoming so much more aware. I have such a good time with her, and I think I can actually handle this baby thing!

3. World of Warcraft. Ive cancelled my 2 Star Wars Galaxies accounts for good and have been spending what little gaming time I do have in WoW. Its so fun to play, I have tons of people to play with, and my main character is in a GREAT guild. It will be nice once im able to ding lvl 60, so I can help out in the high end raids. Im halfway through lvl 47, should hopefully hit 48 tonite.

4. Went to VEGAS! Last weekend I went to Las Vegas with my was an incredible time. Ill post more with pictures hopefully later, including the most satisfying moment ive had in my life, a childhood dream truley fulfilled. More on that later.

Other than that, same old same old. Work, lunch with mom downtown alot, work, ride home with mom, do stuff at home or with Emily...repeat. Things are good.

Look for some emily pictures to come soon, and a longer post talking and showing some of the sights and stories of my trip to Vegas over labor day!

Have a good rest of the week, everyone!

Edit: For the record, an instant day ruiner would be messing around searching on google images, and finding pictures of your ex-fiancee getting cuddly on a chair with roses with someone she swore she never would be interested in.
