Journal: Columbus

Journal by Murphy Murph

I am going to start adding every Slashdot user who is a Columbus Ohio resident to my friends list.

I just like using the little green ball as an attention grabber when browsing comments.

Journal: Driving

Journal by Murphy Murph

Background info: I'm a land surveyor.

I'm getting tired of driving 200+ miles every work day. I only live 7 miles from my office, but lord knows my project manager can't maintain any relationship long enough to keep us busy with in-town work.

Reasons I shouldn't gripe:
It's not my vehicle.
It's not an uncomfortable vehicle (2004 Silverado 2500HD.)
I'm not paying for fuel.
I get paid while driving.
It's arguably easier to be in the truck 3 hours a day than spend those three hours outside in wet and cold Ohio winters.
I have NPR in the truck.
My boss could be forcing me to stay out of town instead of driving. (But that would require him to plan more than a day ahead.)

BUT the driving sure does wear on me. I take Adderall for my ADD and I STILL want to fall asleep.

Journal: Anonymous cowards

Journal by Murphy Murph

I really hate it when moderators mod down an anonymous coward's post regardless of it's content.

I don't like AC posts, and I ignore them as a rule. Slashdot has a fine tool for me to ignore AC posts with (I just set them as -5) and it seems like such a waste of mod points to mod an AC down unless somebody else has already modded the post up. It's not like you can make the score -2 so you don't see it when browsing at -1.
