Star Tours... What are you doing here?

I just updated the blog to the new beta blogger (which can now be merged with google).

So whats new?

Nothing really. Still working for the casino, and of course very much enjoying it. So glad to be out of that damned dealership. The casino doesnt make the blog fun as it did before with the advantures in the dealership. So enough about this...

I had a reason to post but now I can not remember why, it was a good reason too, but my memory has failed me for the last time. Well, I can't be too sure about that... Let me think on this...
....
......
........ Blast ...........

Anyways...
Was playing this earlier today: Submachine 1. I enjoyed it, very good puzzle. Started playing the second one Submachine 2: The Lighthouse, damn its kind of a pain in the ass. I wish it had a save game feature.

How to easily delete your hotmail indox/spam box.

It's simple really. Don't sign in for at least 31 days, and on the 32nd day, log in and viola you have a clean inbox and spambox.

I know this because it's been that long since I've check my hotmail account. Though I dont really use it, because I have about 3 gmail accounts I use. Only thing I get thats worth while in my hotmail account is the Beta testing stuff from microsoft, in which I might have to re-sign up for. But who knows.

"We Run 24x7!' But we're out of the office....

So I openup Thunderbird (the other, better, Outlook) . And like normal I get a phishing scam from said company. Like I normally do, I forward the email with full headers and message on to the company (who was intended to be impersonated) and the anti-phishing groups. So I forwarded it and oddly I got an email back from where I forwarded it to. This is what I got back.


Normaly, when you get an out of office auto reply, the reply doesnt state that you are around 24x7. Just thought this was amusing read in the email. So, what 24x7 support is this?

Here are some anti-phishing / Reporting site you can send your phishing emails to:
Of course you should also report the scam to which ever institution is being impersonated. Like some of the following:
A Nice site with an Anti-Phishing Tool bar is NetCraft. I suggest it's use to people whom are do not properly know how to notice a bogus/fake site.

Happy and Safe browsing.

Charlie Brown...

CHARLIE BROWN
HAS NEVER KNOWINGLY
TAKEN STEROIDS.

BY ANDREW AND EDWARD KIRKPATRICK

- - - -

(Court reporter's transcript.)

- - - -

DISTRICT ATTORNEY OTHMAR: Wah wah-wah wah, wah, wah wah-wah-wah wah?

CHARLIE BROWN: I'm sorry, sir, but I didn't knowingly lie to the grand jury.

D.A.: Wah-wah-wah-wah?

BROWN: I did not knowingly take steroids, sir. Period. Snoopy gave me something to make me throw harder, but he said it was flaxseed oil and vitamin drops. I was tired of having the ball hit back up the middle and all my clothes torn off.

D.A.: Wah wah wah-wah?

BROWN: He's my dog, sir. He said he got the stuff from Woodstock.

D.A.: Wah wah wah-wah?

BROWN: A little yellow bird, sir.

D.A.: Wah wah-wah wah wah wah-wah wah wah wah wah-wah-wah wah-wha-wah wah wah wah wah?

BROWN: Yes, sir.

D.A.: Wah wah wah wah-wah-wah wah-wah?

BROWN: We were boyhood friends, sir.

D.A.: Wah wah-wah wah wah wah wah wah?

BROWN: My head's always been this big. Ask Sally. And I'm not going bald; I've never had more than three hairs, sir.

D.A.: Wah-wah wah.

BROWN: What's backne?

D.A.: Wah-wah wah-wah wah.

BROWN: Gross.

D.A.: Wah wah-wah wah wah.

BROWN: Greenies? Sure, there were amphetamines, but we didn't know they were illegal. Linus said they'd help us play with more pep. We only took them once, and then after the game we went back to my house and everybody started dancing crazy while our catcher played the piano.

D.A.: Wah-wah-wah wah wah-wah wah-wah wah.

BROWN: I play for the love of the game, sir.

D.A.: Wah wah-wah wah?

BROWN: Yeah, we've lost a lot of games over the years.

D.A.: Wah-wah wah. Wah-wah wah-wah wah wah wah.

BROWN: Who told you that, sir?

D.A.: Wah wah-wah wah.

BROWN: Hey, no way. You can't believe anything Franklin put in that book. You all are ... you're stupid blockheads!

(The courtroom erupts in a babble of wah-wahs.)

D.A.: Wah-wah-wah wah wah-wah wah. Wah.

(The witness begins to cry.)

BROWN: Have you ever seen our team, sir? We're hopeless. Just hopeless. The right fielder spends half the time in the infield trying to talk the catcher into going out with her. Our first baseman carries a blanket onto the field. My dog is the shortstop! He's the definition of "all field, no hit," and you don't even want to touch the ball after he catches it with his mouth. Have you ever lost a game 60-0? We needed a competitive advantage. I was sick of all the attention going to Peppermint Patty. Peppermint Patty's so great. She's so wonderful. She's been on the juice for years! Why do you think Marcie always calls her "sir"? Her testosterone levels are through the roof. But no one says anything because she's a girl. Franklin, Marcie, Pig-Pen ... they're all on the stuff.

D.A.: Wah wah-wah wah.

BROWN: I don't think so, sir. This is a witch hunt out to get Charlie Brown, because Charlie Brown is a boy.

D.A.: Wah-wah wah wah wah wah wah-wah wah-wah-wah.

(The witness holds his head in his hands.)

BROWN: Does this mean our one win has to be forfeited?

"So Blogged.. Cant stand it anymore.....Ahhhggg"

Yea I haven't blogged in a while. So here I am blogging again, I know, I know.. I should do this in the privacy of my own home (in which I am).

So what has been going on with me lately. Well, the New job is still going strong and kicking ass. I'm still working Graveyard shift (12am to 9am), which I see my self working for a while. I enjoy it alot gives me the day to do things, or until I go to sleep one of the two. Generally that doesnt happen untill about 3pm or 4pm and awake at about 9:30pm or 10pm.

Nothing really new, just been working and home and some side projects. Yep, this is a boring post. I'll try to liven it up a little. But I dont work with mr wonderful anymore so, my day goes by uneventfull, or more so with silly tasks. There are somethings that happen at work that are funny and worth posting but I usually dont get the chance to post them due to my brain having issues every now and then.

Happy 15th Birthday, WorldWideWeb!

For those of you who don't remember, the Web was announced to the world on August 6, 1991 by Tim Berners-Lee on the alt.hypertext newsgroup. You were a subscriber, weren't you?

Berners-Lee wrote back:

The WorldWideWeb (WWW) project aims to allow links to be made to any information anywhere. The address format includes an access method (=namespace), and for most name spaces a hostname and some sort of path.

We are very interested in spreading the web to other areas, and having gateway servers for other data. Collaborators welcome!"

Stupid Demo wont install on my pc.. Bastards.
(Was trying to install Visual Studio .Net 2005 Beta 2, a cd/dvd I've had for awhile I actually got from microsoft... Amazingly its not working.Bastards.)

It's midnight at 10am.

Graveyard Shift. Its a wonderful thing. Makes the day go by much faster, simply because you sleep through it. Just finished my second week on grave. And I have to say, Im rather enjoying it. The work day just flies by, even when there is nothing for me to do. And Yes, I have been neglecting my blogging duties, but it is not really my fault, well yes it is but Im blaming the job. So, deal with it. All in all the only thing I'd have to say I miss is being with the kids and karen. But now that the kids are out of school for the summer I shall see them during the day when I get home. Im thinking of not heading to slumber until about 3pm that way I can sleep until 9 or so. Well If I can make it to 3, Its all really a matter of getting my sleeping habits changed over to this new time schedule. Did I mention that Im a day behind everyone else. Something like that.

As for other things there there and here. Doing what I can when I can. Oh, I went back to the dealership the other day. Karen had a doc apt in riverside so I droped her off and then went trucking over there. Man, Do I miss that place, No.. No I don't, I can't back that up, really I don't not at all. And yes, Mr. Wonderfully has called in the past for odd questions about where is this and how did you do that and "Did I leave the stove on again." kind of things. And I come to find out the Tablet PC's that where setup and Working when I left, are not working. Apparently, ever since the ERA people came out and setup the program on them they stopped working away/off the docking stations. So once you pull them from a Lan connection and go Wireless they decide to protest and not work. I was talking with one of the mechanics and he thinks is has to deal with the fact that the ERA program (which runs kinda like a telnet session), that is so old that it really doesnt know what to do with the Wireless connection that it says Fuck you and quits. Hence why it works on the lan. But hey, NOT my problem any more. Ahhhh... Much better.

So ah.. other than that I said Hi to a few people. and here a few other classic stories since I've been gone. Funny stuff too, but for another post.. Im hungry.

Was looking through some old backup cd's and found a few photos. heres one of them

Sunday, June 11, 2006

I know where my keys are.

I found them.. Oddly enough they were outside next to the dog food bins.

Where the F**k are my keys?

Where the F**k are my keys?

Keys... Hello Keys?

All day today... and I still havent found them.

I scratched an icth...

Yea, While helping someone out with flash, I scratched an itch I had and gave my pc a virus, well more so a parasite and some spyware that was most annoying to remove so I formated. Funny thing it is. I kicked my self in the ass not for opening the file, for er ah a short patch process, (not from the user's file), but for formating the drive without saving my bookmarks and some documents. How ever I did find this niffty extension for FireFox called FoxMarks. Which Uploads and syncronizes your bookmarks online for you to sync with at another pc. But alot of good it does me at the moment. Ah well it will be easy for next time.

I like infecting my pc every 6 months or so with a virus or spyware and then have fun removing it. Well mainly just sitting here and reformating my pc and installing all the neat stuff back on it.

Roaming around looking for a link on a project im working on at home I came across an engery drink rating site: www.screamingenergy.com. Of course I have to look and read some of them.. Wow. Some I've never heard and I want them. I liked this one.. Spaz Juice, and this one I'd have to agree with the editor. But of course, Monster has one of the best ratings.

(Theres actually more smeard writing on my hand but you cant really see it)

Walking, Walking Walking, Breathe

The New Job at the Casino is freaking great. I'm loving it, the day goes by so fast. Im currently working day shift, so we'll see how fast the day goes when I start swing or grave. Working at the casino is a blast, believe it or not. I enjoy it a hellaway more than the craptacular dealership. Working on a Ticket system is easy, I look at my tickets and get them done, Im not stopped every 15mins to fix a spreadsheet, or look at a spreadsheet that I just sent out. Nope, just my work and thats it, Im very much appericated when I complete a ticket. When you go to a user (which is pretty much 75% of the time, your thanked. Something that was rare from the dealership, although there were times that I was thanked, but not from Mr. Wonderful. But that is all in the past.Really though the New place Rocks! Yea, Im actually working in an IT environment and not some half assed-mickey moused network, er, spagetti'd group of computers. Thing matter.

So, I'll end that aburptly because I didnt keepup with the train of thought that was traveling through my mellon.

Oh did I mention the walking? No? ok then I will.

Yea the walking and walking to and from each user is nice. Should be loosing some pounds for this. Yea, I work-out. hahahaha

Tuesday, May 09, 2006

Oh, I forgot the Kitchen Sink.

Yea, about that...

Last Friday was grand, kinda like the last day of school, you know your there but you pretty much do nothing. Well, I did a few things to tiddy up around a leave a few notes and what not, but I left early. I know Mr. Wonderful was kinda mad at the fact that he didnt have any one to replace me before I left and that I couldn't be there this week for the install, or I should say implementation of the service advisor's tablet pc's. Don't know much as so far to this week other than Mr. W calling today. So, If I know more...

First Day, New Job. New Wooden Spoon.

First day on the new job, Had orientation today at my new employer, Pala Casino Spa & Resort. Mainly orientation was first part of the morning, after lunch. Oooooh Lunch, Yea, I get free food. Yum! Actually it is good food, so far, so cant complain on that aspect. Parking, Ahh Yes, Fantastic, employee's have their own section, and no more fighting and having a brisk walk to and from your car to your office. Oh sorry, Back to the day events. After lunch, I started the (actually second tour) of the casino, which was more indepth than the first one. Every employee I've meet today has seemed very friendly, everything is up beat, which is good. Heh, back to the post, and stop rambling... Got setup with User name and what not today, and started my shadow process and followed a co-worker around. This will be my first job that I will use a Ticket system, which I think is great. No more Excel spreadsheets for mee! Nor, no more waiting to fix an issue. By the way, Mr Wonderful called me this morning. He needed to know why I set something up the way I did, so I explained and he said, "Oh". I think I will expect other calls. But thats besides the point of the post. So on ward. Actually thats pretty much the days events in a nut shell. So until next time, I bid thee ado.

Question to ponder...

Why do pc's have a hibernate/sleep key on the keyboard?

Wednesday, May 03, 2006

Two Days... To Go...

Then my friend I shall be free of wonderfully fantastic place I work for and Off to Start a new adventure.

Supprisingly, Mr. Wonderfull has been decent with me over the past week, well in away I shouldnt be so supprised, I've been getting the feeling that I am needed there and that the place can not function well without me. But, I will find this out later when a friend of mine informs me in a bout a month.

I'll Post more Friday, my last day at the dealership.

Wednesday, April 26, 2006

"Whats this?" ... "Read it."

I didn't post yesterday's events so I shall post them right now, well then I should say, because now just happend then, and now is now a few minutes ago, or a while ago. Something like that.

So, I walk into Mr. Wonderfull's Office with a Sheet of printed paper, Set the sheet of paper on his desk.

Mr.W: "Whats this?"
Me: "Read it."
MrW: {reads paper and mumbles while reading.}
MrW: "I knew you where going to be leaving, and I thought I told you a few months ago that you need to tell me when your leaving."
Me: "Yea, I am telling you now. I'm giving you my two weeks..."

This is what I handed him...

I hereby tender my resignation as Network and Systems Technician from Singh Chevrolet. My last day will be May 5, 2006.

Thank you very much for the opportunity and learning experience.

That was it. I didnt think it was hard to understand. So the conversation continued...

MrW: "I know this, but I need some time so I can train someone to take your place."
Me: "Yes, that is why I am giving you My 2 WEEKS Notice. My last Day being May 5th."
MrW: "I know, I will need to train someone.."
Me: "Why? I started here with out any training. Its not like this network is large and what I do here is hard."
MrW: "Thats not the point."

He then continued on about how I know what Im doing and such and he needs this and that. So Im guessing he's expecting the next person he traps, er, gets wont know the difference between left and right mouse click. I also told him I dont plan on just leaving, unless he gives me shit or requests one of his many fantastic ideas to be carried out. He didn't put up much of a bitch, but I know he's pissed about it. I've also told the service manager about it and he told me Why leave, this is the greatest place to work! Ha! ;)

In long there is currently no one to fill my place, co-workers wonder if Mr. W Jr is going to take it, Which would pretty much be live not having anyone. I highly doubt they will get someone with skills like mine or simular to work there, or at least for long. Til next time.

Fast Times at Singh Chevrolet...

I have neglicted my blog. I am a terrible blogger. I must be hanged at once. Well, I'll choose cake instead.

So, whats been going on here in the wonderfull world of Chadsville. Well, my stars the things I've done. Well for starters alot, and like normal I've been meaning to post about some days events at work. Of the newest things is that Mr Wonderfull decided to turn on Websense again, which once again blocked users from doing their job, but this time he took a little of my advice and to completely re-configure websense, being that it wasnt working correctly. So, he cleared the lists of allowed sites and blocked ones, So naturally I start getting phone calls about this. My response to them was.. "Call Mr W and tell him." Yes, I was structed by him that I am NOT to do anything unless it had gone through him first. My question, "What the hell do I do then? Isn't that my job to fix these things? His title is not, Systems Admin or Tech, its something like field Operations Manager or something. Well, Curious to see what it really is, (at least whats on his bus. card) I took a look at his business card, which he has had new ones made they now read "Purchasing & Systems Manager"? Huh.. Nice title for someone who told me when I first started titles on a bus card doesnt matter. Great isnt it?

Day in and day out, do this and this but do this first and dont forget to do that too, Oh and fix my home PC while your at it. Wait..., Aren't you the Systems Manager, so you should know how to fix your own pc? OH and Mr. Wonderfull junior seems to think he knows more. He even set up the network here at (Dealership) and at the northern California store. Wow, I could have sworn Myself and a school buddy did. So Jr should be-able to fix it, no? Guess not. Well when you cant figure out to check if the pc has memory in it and what the beeps are when you power a pc on and you dont know? (Sorry if Im bitching about it like this but, when you say you know something and you don't, you shouldn't bragg, because when its time and someone asks you to do something and you cant, then thats your fault. And yes this happens, the job usually ends up coming back my way anyhow, I don't understand why Mr. Wonderfull does this. But I've come to just let it be and wait).

Today, Mr wonderfull had one of his wonderfull moments again today. Friday he sent me an email with the message of....

"[filename.xls] see me monday morning about this."

So I asked him about this today, he told me that the file was sent in the email, and it wasnt. So he proceeded to forward it to me again while telling me to print it out and bring it back to him. I told him to just print it out right now and thn tell me what he wants, and No, Just print it out he said. I stood there telling him to just print it out, it will save me the trip and time. But to no avail, He sent the email to me and told me I needed the exercise. I told him I didnt need the excercise and that I've spent good money on my keg (opposite of a guy's six pac, mind you Im not plump See flickr if you dont know what I look like.). But Still, a no. I mean if you dont print things whats the use of having 2, yes, TWO printers in your office? Mind you both are Multi-function printers (I'll post a photo later...).

On to the next thing. Heh, The Workweb cam was finally found after numerous times of people starring straight at it. Thus I removed after being asked. Oddly enough, I wasn't asked why I had it installed on it. None the less it would have been removed sooner or later. Im saying this because, As of Tuesday April 25, 2006 I am putting in my Two Weeks notice. Yes, I have finally found another job, more or less a career. I'll keep you all posted as to what happens when I turn in my notice.

Waffles!

Thank you Pull Forward...

The other day, Karen wanted KFC for dinner. So I drove down to the nearest KFC and went through the drive-through. As we approached the Menu, I thought I wonder if they take ATM, being I didnt have any cash on me. So its our turn to order. I thought I would ask the attendant if they took ATM.

Attendant: "Welcome to KFC, ..." Blah Blah " order when your ready."
Me: "Do you guys take ATM Cards?"
Attendant: "No, Only Debit Cards."
Normally the answer from them is "As long as it has a Visa or Mastercard logo."
The answer that was given actually stumped me and I couldnt order, I turned and looked at karen, and asked just to make sure. "ATM and Debit card's are used the same way, right?"

Ah..

So, I've gone back to a Template for my blog. Why you ask, Because I couldn't get the Comments issue fixed. So now you can comment. Im gonna redo the layout and hopefully I wont have that issue again.

Not much in the world of mine. I turned another full year older yesterday. So Happy Un-Birthday to me today! Why I think its Your Un-Birthday today Too! Ah.. More Tea!
I have an excellant Idea... Lets change the Subject!

Thats a Great Price!

Was walking by the vending machine here at and work and notice something that made smile and laugh, So I snapped a photo with my trusty Cell Phone with that nifty Camera built in.

So if I get the Lime flavored Gatorade its 1.75 and if I get the others its only 1.50. Hmm, Thats a fantastic price!

Work Drawing...


No, this isnt me.. Its.... well a long story. Mr. Wonderfull's Son

Wednesday, March 29, 2006

Two or 10... Hmmm Interesting.

42 Times. Once in the right Direction. Twice In the other direction and three times a twinkie. Why is it that 1 can not be enough, but 3 is a crowd. If I can get Whole Sliced Peaches for a $ 1.75, why is it that Jimmy cracks corn. How do you crack corn, anyway. So back to 42. It's said 42 is the meaning of life, or the answer. So My question, is what was asked to get the answer. Was it how much does this Pearing Knife set Cost? Or Is it, How much the Doggy in the window really is? Or is it just the answer when you Multiply 6 by 7. Either way I will never know if its 42 licks to the center of a Tootise pop.

I actually hoped I would have something more meaningful and factual. Well, I could tell you that that the answer is "2 b" ("to be").

Something like that. I'll post something more meaningfull and useless. Oh and I'll try to fix the comments button too.

To Unlock or Not to Unlock... This is the Question...

Got an email today regarding how to unlock your car if you locked your Keys in the car. No, this isnt done by calling OnStar or Triple A, as I thought it might be.

These types of email are all over the place and find their way around the net. I personally don't think so. For one, a Cell phone is a different Frequency than your car's security alarm and the Lock/unlock remote.

But, Here's the email anyway.

"LOCKED KEYS IN YOUR CAR"

This is ingenious... If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone on your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your
car door and have the other person at your home press the unlock button
of your key fob (clicker), holding it near the phone on their end.
Your car doors will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you.
Distance is no object you could be hundreds of miles away,
and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote"
for your car, you can unlock the doors (or trunk)!
Editor's note: It works fine! We tried it out, and it unlocked our car.
And no, this is Fiction. For one I went and tried and secondly I did a google search for this story and came across this. So, thats that. Don't Believe everything you get in an email. The best way to get into the car.. Use a "Slim Jim" or a Wire Coat hange. They work fine, I know this from experiance.

Truth or Fiction Site

Window Tinting and Wireless...

They don't mix.

So don't put a Wireless connection behind a Very Dark Tinted window. Unless you dont want the outside world to use your connectiong. I've learned this from experince. and also looked it up on the net. Heres one link for it.

Yes, I racked my knoggin on this one. Trying to setup two Access points to act as a bridge to use a VoIP Phone. One AP was set up in a Gazebo (sp) and the other in a Building that has a big window, in-which is very much tinted. Closed the door to the room and bam, Connection lost. Arrgg.. WTF. Before all this both AP's were testing and worked fine. So, when they were put in place, they had a low signal. I check to make sure the distance was not a factor, which it was not. Low and behold it was the damned Tinting on the Window. Good Times

Hacker Gains Root access to MAC OS x in 30 min.

Yep True... and about damn time...
Although Gwerdna said that Mac OS X contains unpatched vulnerabilities that would permit a hacker to infiltrate Apple's operating system, he said that the relatively small number of Macs in use -- in contrast to the vast number of PCs running Windows -- is the reason more hackers do not try to exploit them.
Very interesting and funny read.. Althought it was a contest theres still a lesson to be learned...
The lesson here is that if we look at Mac OS X and compare it to, say,
Windows XP, we find that, in terms of the number of vulnerabilities, they are actually quite comparable," said Vincent Weafer, senior director at Symantec Security Response.

Enjoy your Spagetti

I got this email from Mr. Wonderfull this morning.

I hope ours will look like that by the month end.

Yep. That was it..

I am a Jedis' Apperentice...

Mr. Wonderfull calls me to his office today. (One of many times) Shows me he's having problems connecting to a pc at the northern california dealership. But before I continue, I must explain how we conntect to each other. We have a VPN connection between both dealerships, so in-essense I can conenct to 192.168.100.xxx (workstation) from 192.168.50.xxx (workstation). We use Remotely anywhere to Remote to each station. Now normally there isnt any issue with connecting to each other. But when you have another Nic card installed, and its directly connected to a DSL connection, IE will connect through the DSL rather than the Networked connection. So naturally, if you try to access 192.168.100.xxx, it will not connect being its not going through the VPN that has been setup. I explain this to him and disable the DSL connection for the time being. Upon thinking about why he has or needs a second Nic card I engage in a small conversation with Mr. Wonderfull.

Me: "So, why do you need a second nic card anyways?"
Mr.W: "Because..."
Me: "Why? theres really no need for it, your pc doesnt have any bandwidth load problems..."
Mr.W: "I need it, and When you are ready I will tell you why I have it, until then you do not need to know."
Me: "..."
I walk out of the office and think to myself, Am I some sort of padawan? That answer just doesn't make sense. "When I am ready?". What the hell kind of answer is that.

I need to stop asking "Why?" with this man, he is simply amazing with the things he comes up with.

Sorry, I must Bitch about this...

Ok, Everyone knows about Take-Two, the creators of Grand Theft Auto, are being sued over a hidden sex scene where the player can control what happens. Now, As a gamer (not as much as some) this game doesn't bother me, Nor do I see a reason why people should put up a stink about the game, or any game for that matter. Everyone know what Drug dealers do, Pimps do. So why bitch about it, you see it in movies, on the news on tv. So why complain about it when a video game does it. If you feel the content not correct for your kids then don't buy it for them or dont even allow them to buy it and or play it. Easy as that, As a father of a 10 year old who also shares a passion of video game playing, he knows these types of games are off limits until the is older and more mature. If you feel your kid plays them, then let them know you dont want them playing them. There are a lot worse things in the world, and if your kid doesnt know the difference between a game and life then you need to limit the amount of time and game type he or she plays.

What gets me about this whole thing on sueing them over the Hidden Sex scene, there are worse things in the game other than the hidden porn scene. Sex/porn is an easliy accessable through other means, TV, Video, Internet. Which would you perfer, your kid watching porn or actually going out and having an active sex life.

Here's part of an article I was reading that got me started on this post.
The game, released in 2004, is one of a series in which the player takes the role of a criminal who commits murder, deals in drugs and pimps prostitutes in a virtual Los Angeles. However, the makers, Take-Two Interactive Software, may have stepped over the line by embedding a game within a game called Hot Coffee in which the characters have explicit sex under the control of the player.
With a game like this how can you say that you steped over the line by adding sex? Something thats natural, non-the-less something thats hidden in game. Usually these things are not known by average players until it is spread via forums and in this case the Media (news). Which in my eyes is more violent than any movie or game. You don't see anyone going after an author for a really sexual or violent book do we?...

The point of the legal actions are mainly based on the rating being off. From Mature 17+, to what should have been on it Adult only 18+. How can you differ from a year? Kids these days see sex and talk about or are even active, What so different from acting it out on a game than watching it or even going out and doing it.

Enough of me rambling, the News is on, time for my daily dose of Violence.

File's date is wrong...

A while back I created an excel file that has some automation to as far as
creating cells with the correct month and days and then coloring them as needed
for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The thing with the file is that it has to end in
a 4 digit number, i.e. report2006.xls. Theres a function in it that takes the four
digits and makes it the year for the workbook. So if its not named to this format
the dates will be off. So heres the thing.

Mr. Wonderfull calls me to show me that the files' date is not showing correctly
and the I need to make sure that when the file is done in the morning that it is
done correctly and with out any errors so he can send it to the boss. I get to his
office and look at the file. The date shows as follows: 01/01/6(1). I then tell
him that the file when I sent it did not show that, and that I would look at it.
Now, I didn't notice the file error until I came back to my office and checked the
file. I make the nessecary edits and then remember the date thing. So I make a
note with in the excel file, and how it needs to be saved as, Then send it on its
way back to Mr. Wonderfull. A few seconds later I recieve a call from him, Asking
what I mean by the file name. I then try to explain to him that he had changed
the name of the file so it read 01/01/6(1) as the date. The then tells me that he
did not change the filename. And he is very adamant about it. Anything with
this man no matter how truthfull or right you can be is still wrong and your fault,
regardless of what proof you have.

Odd things I purchased this weekend...


This has to be the oddest purchase I have ever made. Now, mind you the two products by themselves are not at all strange, but when purchased together they make for a rather strange and quite time at the register.

What did I purchase you ask? Well, we mainly went for a Toilet Plunger, but for some reason my sister in law thought we needed Vodka to. So, We bought a Toilet Plunger and a Bottle (big one at that) of Vodka. And yes, The cashier and bagger were giving each other looks about this too.

30 True Facts about Chuck Norris...

This came after corey commented on Law and Order, I looked up the story because I heard it about Chucks Arms and not his legs, Well I soon started laughing my ass off at the following Facts about Chuck Norris. These should also be sent to Conan O'Brien. Just because he likes to show the Clips from Walker: Texas Ranger.

30 True Facts about Chuck Norris...

30. Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.

29. Chuck Norris sold his soul to the devil for his rugged good looks and unparalleled martial arts ability. Shortly after the transaction was finalized, Chuck roundhouse kicked the devil in the face and took his soul back. The devil, who appreciates irony, couldn't stay mad and admitted he should have seen it coming. They now play poker every second Wednesday of the month.

28. When Chuck Norris sends in his taxes, he sends blank forms and includes only a picture of himself, crouched and ready to attack. Chuck Norris has not had to pay taxes ever.

27. Chuck Norris sleeps with a night light. Not because Chuck Norris is afraid of the dark, but the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris

26. Chuck Norris could have any woman he wants, but he has never had sex. He only masturbates because the only person good enough to have sex with Chuck is Chuck.

25. A blind man once stepped on Chuck Norris' shoe. Chuck replied, "Don't you know who I am? I'm Chuck Norris!" The mere mention of his name cured this man blindness. Sadly the first, last, and only thing this man ever saw, was a fatal roundhouse delivered by Chuck Norris.

24. Someone once tried to tell Chuck Norris that roundhouse kicks aren't the best way to kick someone. This has been recorded by historians as the worst mistake anyone has ever made.

23. The original theme song to the Transformers was actually "Chuck Norris--more than meets the eye, Chuck Norris--robot in disguise," and starred Chuck Norris as a Texas Ranger who defended the earth from drug-dealing Decepticons and could turn into a pick-up. This was far too much awesome for a single show, however, so it was divided.

22. Chuck Norris' action figure has slept with more women then most men.

21. Chuck Norris lost his virginity before his dad did.

20. Chuck Norris once tried to sue Burger King after they refused to put razor wire in his Whopper Jr., insisting that that actually is "his" way.

19. Superman owns a pair of Chuck Norris pajamas.

18. It was once believed that Chuck Norris actually lost a fight to a pirate, but that is a lie, created by Chuck Norris himself to lure more pirates to him. Pirates never were very smart.

17. Chuck Norris once shot a German plane down with his finger, by yelling, "Bang!"

16. As a teen Chuck Norris impregnated every nun in a convent tucked away in the hills of Tuscany. Nine months later the nuns gave birth to the 1972 Miami Dolphins, the only undefeated and untied team in professional football history.

15. Chuck Norris can make a woman climax by simply pointing at her and saying "booya".

14. Chuck Norris can touch MC Hammer.

13. To prove it isn’t that big of a deal to beat cancer. Chuck Norris smoked 15 cartons of cigarettes a day for 2 years and aquired 7 different kinds of cancer only to rid them from his body by flexing for 30 minutes. Beat that, Lance Armstrong.

12. Chuck Norris was the fourth Wise Man. He brought baby Jesus the gift of “beard”. Jesus wore it proudly to his dying day. The other Wisemen, jealous of Jesus’ obvious gift favoritism, used their combined influence to have Chuck omitted from the Bible. Shortly after all three died of roundhouse kick related deaths.

11. Chuck Norris once ate three 72 oz. steaks in one hour. He spent the first 45 minutes having sex with his waitress.

10. Chuck Norris invented water.

9. Chuck Norris invented the question mark.

8. The original theme song to the Transformers was actually “Chuck Norris–more than meets the eye, Chuck Norris–robot in disguise,” and starred Chuck Norris as a Texas Ranger who defended the earth from drug-dealing Decepticons and could turn into a pick-up. This was far too much awesome for a single show, however, so it was divided.

7. When Chuck Norris’s wife burned the turkey one Thanksgiving, Chuck said, “Don’t worry about it honey,” and went into his backyard. He came back five minutes later with a live turkey, ate it whole, and when he threw it up a few seconds later it was fully cooked and came with cranberry sauce. When his wife asked him how he had done it, he gave her a roundhouse kick to the face and said, “Never question Chuck Norris.”

6. The quickest way to a man’s heart is with Chuck Norris’s fist.

5. Chuck Norris can make a woman climax by simply pointing at her and saying “booya”.

4.
At birth, Chuck Norris came out feet first so he could roundhouse kick the doctor in the face. Nobody delivers Chuck Norris but Chuck Norris.

3. Chuck Norris counted to infinity - twice.

2. Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.

1. Chuck Norris is currently suing NBC, claiming Law and Order are trademarked names for his left and right legs.

Back from a week off....

Well, I returned back to work yesterday, but was unable to take the time to blog. I was terrible at blogging during the week I was off, But its ok, because the time they did call I blogged it. and Yes, only two calls, Suprisingly. I figured it was because I didnt reply back to the second one. How-ever the reason for Mr. Wonderfull calling was not worthly of bugging me during my time off. When I got back he asked me why I didn't return his call and also that he called my house number too, but wasnt there. Well he didnt leave a message, and the Caller ID didnt show his number saying he did call, so thats one for me. Two the reason why he called was that he wanted to know where a certain printer was so it can be serviced. ? Huh ? Where the certain printer is normally, I would think, unless... it grew some legs and ran off with the copy machine.

Oh by the way, my printer was one of the three printers to be sent out to get serviced. Funny though, Its been a week, where are the printers? Simple servicing can be done here, I know mine just needed a good cleaning, more so did the other two. Go Figure.
So yesterday Mr Wonderfull gives me a call and asks me to print out something that he can do from online. Wait... You want me to print out something you can print out. First off he has a printer, Two MF Printers (Multi-Function), Why do you need two? Wouldnt one be enough? So anyways, I then inform him that I have no printer and can not print unless I connect to 1 of his or to another one. Wouldn't be that hard for me to, but it needed a color printer and most printers here are black. But no, he wants me to print it to one of his TWO printers, so I connect to one of them and get the drivers and print.. As I walk into his office I see 2 copies of what I just printed... I think to myself.. (Wait.. I printed just one? why are there two?). I ask if I mistakenly printed out two instead of one. He says no, I just printed one. (So if I may, but I may not Ask why didn't he just print one out in the first place? He had no reason as to why.

Yes, I deal with this all the time, and My dear friend Kevin is ever-so lucky to not have to deal with him anymore because Mr. W will more or less not go back up there. And I say un-to you Kevin, BOO!!!! You suck!

All in all it was a decent day yesterday other than the printing thing. Nothing much else to bitch about. Today has been going decently too. So, until tomorrow, Remember Badger Badger Badger Badger Badger Badger Badger

< /* Comment */ Code Code Type Code /* Arrg */

Yep, New layout for the blog. I've been working on this on the side for awhile now, more like 3 or 4 months off and on, on and off. Still some tweaks I need to do, things to add and or change. Other than that, its pretty much done. Do you like? I think I do. For now at least, I'm sure like when Im redo a site I do it a few different times before I get the final product, which I suprisingly didn't do here.

As for work, this is my last paid day, and have had an almost call free week, with the execptions of monday and a call on tuesday. So, I'll be back to the grind on monday.

Updates.. that take all day...

Had updates to do this morning that took me all day to do. Well, actually I finished them in the normal time, which was about 2 hours. None-the-less, Mr. wonderfull was in today, So that caused me to not finish anyother duties that I had planned before I left, which would have been around 10ish. I got to work at 6am, which is normal for me when I do my updates (beats being there after 10pm).

So, the updates are done. I now head on to getting two new pcs for the sales desk managers, which I got running during the week and ready to exchange early today. But Nope, I was stoped right in my tracks by Mr Wonderfull to help him fix his new printer that he tried to install. Well, I was quickly able to figure out why it he couldnt. Apparently, you can't use Macintosh drivers and software for plug and pray on a windows xp workstation. Well after some battle to find the correct CD for the the printer, I then did a full install of the HP software (750mbs), I waited for the first 5 mins, then figured it was going to be awhile before it finished, this allowed me to get the other pcs up and running, I got up and told mr wonderfull not to touch his pc and to let it finish installing, and let me know when it was done. I wander off to finish the other workstations. Not too much time flys by when Im summoned back to his office.

MrW: "Chad, I finished the install. I click on finish. But the scann software isn't there."
Me: "I told you not to touch your pc until I came back.."
MrW: "Yes, it was finished so I clicked, Finish."
Me: "Did you see any other buttons or notices for installing anything else or something wasnt installed correctly?"
MrW: "No, said nothing that I know of."

Well, that was great. So i then proceed to figure out why it did not install the scanning software. Now, this isn't the first time I've had problems with multi-function printers not installing fully. So, I proceeded to look at the files on the cd to find if there is any setup for the scanner. Nope. So I looked around a little bit more and decided to uninstall the software and drivers and give it a clean install with the printer pluged in (I did the first install unplugged.. because of other printers like it that way). So, I started to install the software again while Mr wonderfull was in the office, to show him that I installed it to FULL compacity. Well then ending result was an installed printer that works, but the scaning feature. Thus, mr wonderful starting to complain about why this and why that and I've done this here and there and I can yadda yadda yadda. I then told him, Look, you watched me install it with Full Options, and I went through eveything I possibly could and still no scaning tool. I then told him to read about a book about a lil boy named manual or to call HP and that I had other things to finish so I could complete my duties and be on my way to start my .. [yes] .. vacation time. To make it short and nice, I didnt end up leaving until 2pm.

So yea, Im off for a week without work. Well, Im actually wondering how long it will be until he or someone else from work calls me. I was seriously thinking about starting a Football style Pool for my vacation time and see what dates and times I would be called on. Everyone at work knows I will not be in next week, so I should not get any calls.. Notice I said should not. But we will see my friend, we shall see. Even on my way out today, mr wonderfull stopped me and asked about getting something done on monday, I had to remind him I was not going to be in on monday. and he said.. "Oh." with a hmmm kinda tone to it. So with that said, Bid thee adu.

Microsoft patches .wmf vulnerablity

Microsoft has made a patch available for the .wmf vulnerablity. The patch was release yesterday after finishing testing, which was ahead of schedule. Their (MS) monthly patch will be out next tuesday. Mike Nash Corporate Vice President responsible for security at Microsoft wrote in the team blog that the decision to release ahead of schedule was driven by talking to customers and that they had indicated a preference to have the patch available out of cycle. Customers with automatic update turned on will automatically receive the update. At an enterprise level, Nash advised putting the patch through exactly the same testing procedures run on any security update before rolling it out. More information can be found on their website.

However, GRC.com put out a temporary patch to help protect Windows users from the exploitation of the WMF vulnerability. You can apply either patches, Do the GRC.com patch then microsoft's or just not update at all.
