This past week I’ve been in Toronto participating in a knowledge transfer. I was handing off my projects and learning the ropes on one much bigger one. My position with MediSolution has come to and end – I was sold along with some IP and equipment to new company. My day to day job won’t […]
27395It has been a very long time since I updated my website. It got to a point where the text editor was very old and clunky, the blogging software was ancient and I had too much customization to make it worth upgrading to newer versions. So I finally bit the bullet, and decided to upgrade […]
Shockingly, my title is a lie. This has nothing to do with investments. I simply figured as I haven’t been social lately due to being generally busy, and I’m currently bored, I’d issue forth some sort of update.
Yes, it’s a follow up. Actually, it’s probably going to consist of nothing more than a short update on the work situation, and then me going off, and doing some needed venting about a couple of newbs that started recently, and who I would really like to ‘accidentally’ hurl in to an engine ingestion zone while it’s spooled up. (Note : Yes, it is actually referred to as the ingestion zone. I find this morbidly hilarious. In fact, upon hearing this description during the training class, I burst in to laughter.)
Just a few musings after my first couple of shifts
So now it’s my turn to spout off. Not because I have any special insights but because, dammit, one person contributing to a collaborative website makes me cry. And dammit, this rant doesn’t belong on "In The Now".
So there are fires in San Diego. That’s bad. People are being evacuated. A member of my development team have been forced to move out of their homes and now have no idea whether their house still stands because he’s riding it out in Las Vegas with family. (Honestly, whose family lives in Las Vegas? What, is he related to Donald Trump, or Wayne Newton?) So now I have to hear about football players spouting off.
Per PFT: Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson said Wednesday, "Thank God it burned all the way around my house, but it didn’t get my house. My house stayed intact."
Yes, LaDainian, God protected your house. It is your overwhelming devotion to God that kept him from destroying your personal possessions.
I realize that Thank God has become a buzz word for anyone who’s even remotely thankful for anything. I use it on occasion. However, when it appears that all of the houses around him have been razed to the ground by a freak natural occurrence, and he’s the one who’s lucky enough to have his house intact, it seems a little trite and superior. You’ve got what, three zillion dollars in the bank? Think maybe God would spare a house or two for people who can’t afford to lose them? Think maybe God didn’t have anything to do with saving your house?
Honestly, get over yourself.
"Oh, but my stuff’s still there, so that’s good." Maybe show a little more community spirit, show some sympathy for those people who lost everything instead of thanking the almighty for sparing your PS3 and pictures of your cat.
Fucking rich people think it’s all about them.
Since Facebook is a complete piece of arse and has insanely restrictive comment length limits, I shall be forced to speak here…and, you know, keep ‘my’ site going in the process. I shall now proselytize on the subject of one Chris Benoit and his crimes.
Yeah, what a ghastly title that was. I hate titles. they’re fucking afterthoughts for me.
anyway, so, tonight shall be the trial run of Red Robin as the new meeting place for our little band, so, seeing as I was bored as fuck, I composed a little story in my email to people, and just thought I’d share it, because, as stated, I am bored, and it will fill time. So, enjoy, or not.
Oh, and I WILL be getting coffee…they better have good coffee!
So…yeah…MAYBE something new?
In a world of ancient, crappy bands that nobody likes coming back and touring, I don’t think any of them can top the return of Black Sabbath with Ronnie James Dio fronting…
