Just a note...please feel free to comment on anything. I am not a chicken shit so my comments are ENABLED. I will also use "plain old text" from now on. Apparently slashdot hates it when people so I am going to keep doing it.
I will also end all posts with "FUCK SLASHDOT" for a while.
My hatred has boiled over. Time for some fuckers to pay. Evil is the way. I would like to call for the death to the fallowing people and countries at this time:
all people on the earth
who else...israel I guess...everyone hates them, including themselves for some odd reason
need more...ummm...oh the people who brought you digg.com..all 5 of them who are on the republicans payroll
republicans...oh I said that..
christians...oh yeah..they gotta go...catholics especially...little boy raping bastards
nudists ok...they don't fuck with others...same with the Buddhists...I am thinking of converting to that. I think I need inner peace not brought about by alcohol.
ugly fat women who wear too much god damn perfume. same with 90 year women who use perfume to cover their constant stench of death
Ok..that is everybody...
I fired this off to slashdot yesterday and never got a response. To be honest, I never did expect one. It is hard to see the obvious arrogance of those who run this fucking place. But anyhoo...
Got a question. I just noticed today that my Karma is "BAD" After I did some looking on my recent comments, I have noticed three common factors. If I say something bad about democrats, linux, or RPGs and I get troll moderated. I would not call that a fair way of moderating. Now to be honest, I am not going to lose any sleep with bad (or worse) karma nor do I have any interest in moderating others. Same goes with getting kicked out of slashdot. I have better things to do. I have always thought pretty highly of slashdot and freshmeat. But your moderators leave a lot to be desired.
Could I get an article posted saying "liberals are not for net neutrality" (of which they certainly are not by the way)? Slashdot does not seem to mind posting McCain hates bloggers, bad Microsoft articles, and how love to bash SCO whenever it gets the chance. Then again, neocons/fascists are just as much of a piece of crap as socialist trash like Obama. I hate both wings of the so called "two party system" destined to crash the US. But I digress. I am also not scared to mention in comments what I really think about both of them.
Slashdot CLEARLY has its own political agenda and has no qualms on broadcasting it.
I guess my question REALLY is what is up with bad karma on comments not liked by others? It is not like I have posted comments to hurt others or post spam. Does not going along with the Slashdot plan assign me a bad karma level? If I like Windows, Republicans, or SCO am I evil? All viewpoints does not seem to exist here.
Let me know.
So to add...Am I "politically incompatible" with Slashdot or any of you sorry fuckers who think I am a troll? To be honest, I do not care. I do much better over at digg.com. I have 50 friends there and EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM asked me to be their friend. Not the other way around.
Eventually digg.com or google is going to come along and offer "Commander Taco Bell Jackass Living in his Mom's basement III" a load of cash to sell out because he is an American and that is what Americans do...sell out. Because Americans are rat bastard pieces of sell out shit. I should know. I am one of them.
I guess I am really torn is to decide if I should just say "fuck it" and go back to Anonymous coward status since I have never moderated anyone anyway (and I never plan to) and just stick it out and to see if my karma will ever go back up?
Fuck you assholes. I do not give two fucks about KARMA. Karma and the owners of slashdot can suck my mother fucking cock. It is bigger than theirs and I can assure you (unlike the owners of
I know I am an evil fuck and I do not conform to the "hacker" image. I do not live in my mom's basement, eat ramin noodles, or hate Microsoft windows while at the same time running cygwin to lie to myself that I am a linux head (I have certs to prove that), or comment like a tool on every message board about how SCO is evil while chewing orbits gum.
Get a life you fucking losers....and that's commentary...
Came in this morning and went ahead with regular duties. Nothing spectacular going on so I went into the bosses office to talk about some reports I'll be developing in the near future. Our full time sysadmin comes in and tells us we have a problem. Two drives failed on the production database server, 3 minutes apart, on separate buses. One on the data partition, one on the system partition. The HP management tools never picked up on it, and in fact still report that everything is just peachy.
We go back to the server room to swap drives out when we hear an odd noise, look back and another drive has failed on the application development test server.
Full time position with focus on VB.Net, ASP.Net, SQL Server.
Totally unofficial salary range estimate:
Mid thirties to low forties.
This is a good opportunity for someone fresh out of school to get some experience and learn a lot quickly. The ideal candidate would have some experience with ASP.Net, SQL Server, and some form of reporting tool (Crystal et al).
Excellent benefits, training, and all that good stuff.
Know anyone? Email the address in my profile for more info.
Is still how I remember how to order the CSS pseudo classes for links, I doubt the order is still an issue, but back in Ye Olde Dayse, they had to be declared in order:
As a followup to This.
Our sysadmin goes under the knife today, so I get to put on a new shiny hat and pretend I know what I'm doing with servers and networks. First order of the day, figure out why the Exchange backup failed.
Second order of the day, impose fear, terror, war, pestilence, disease and death upon the users.
I am become sysadmin, destroyer of Outlook appointments.
Planning to buy a new desktop at work, with multiple Visual Studios and long running SQL queries, my current machine is slowing down quite a bit. I was hoping the Quad Core CPUs would be a bit cheaper, but $1200 for a QX6700 is a bit steep.
Here's what I'm looking at atm:
HP xw4400 Workstation Microsoft® Windows®
Genuine Windows® XP Professional SP2
HP xw4400 Localization kit
Intel® Core(TM) 2 Duo E6700 2.67 GHz, 4 MB, 1066 MHz FSB
NVIDIA Quadro NVS 285 128MB PCIe
HP 4GB (4x1GB) DDR2-667 ECC RAM
HP 160GB SATA 3Gb/s NCQ 7200 1st HDD
HP 16X DVD+/-RW DL LightScribe 1st Drive
HP 1.44MB Floppy Disk Drive
+ A second hard drive. HP is way overpriced on those though.
Yes, I created an account. Same name as here, no linky, because I can't visit it from work.
Strike one. Not starting off well here. Not being able to use the site from work means reading it only at night. Odds of that happening on a regular basis are fairly slim.
But I created an account, at least to reserve the name, and I'll give it a shot. I'm not planning to move over and quit Slashdot, because well, I read Slashdot anyway.
For all our complaints, Slashdot's suckage is a topic of conversation. It's like talking about the weather, "Hey look, Wednesdays update broke the server again". There are a lot of garbage articles, poor editorials, and trolling, but there are still enough tech discussions with knowledgeable posters to keep my interest. People also pull articles from the front page and bring them into the journal for discussion.
I think this external input is important to sustaining a community.
The Slashdot journal system has served not just as a blog, but as an extension of other Slashdot articles. It's the private discussion after the town hall meeting is over. But if the discussion instead comes largely from random external sources like news sites or aggregators, I very strongly doubt they will gather much interest. I don't want to visit 20 different sites to read whatever you're posting about. Again, the whole at-work thing.
I know my life isn't interesting enough to warrant daily updates, and while some you live a life of minute-to-minute non-stop never ending action, I think the same holds true for many in the circle. An update every few weeks or months is good enough.
Strike two, Slashdot provides a place where I can read tech news, articles, and reviews, and keep up with the lives of friends. Multiply is one more site to keep up with.
The basic problem is that if there isn't a critical mass of readers on Slashdot, posting here is just me talking to myself.
Strike three, if posting on Slashdot is pointless, and using Multiply at work isn't an option, this means that I and I'm sure some more with me, will pretty much go quiet except for the occasional "Hey look at what my kids did last week" posts.
I'm not posting this because I want people to beg me to come over. Nor do I have the delusion that my situation would change the direction the circle is going. This is just a heads-up not to expect to hear much from me anymore if indeed Multiply becomes the new home.
I think the end result of Multiply will, ironically enough, be a divide in the circle that will lead to atrophy.
Maybe I'm wrong and just fear change, it's a possibility too.
Mine are in my bed, I however, am not.
At some point Tammy got the baby into bed, makes sense since he enjoys a boobielicious snack around midnight. Around 3am Mercer crawls in with us, along with blankets, bottles and bears, oh my.
So after 15 minutes of being crammed in between the two, I give up and retreat to the couch. An hour later I'm in the kitchen making coffee and have given up on the idea of sleep tonight.
Is it too soon to send them off to boarding school?
ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. -- A modified marquee in Atlantic Beach has been drawing some attention. "Hoohaa" replaced a word in the title of a play after a driver complained about finding the previous wording offensive.
The marquis for Atlantic Theaters advertises a number of plays including, the Masquerade Ball, Band Jam, and now The Hoohaa Monologues.
Some said hoohaa is a strange word and that its definition depends on its context, while others said it sounds like a country band.
However, it's not a band at all. In fact, most people know hoohah by a different name -- vagina.
"We got a complaint about this play The Vagina Monologues," said Bryce Pfanenstiel, of the Atlantic Theater.
The Hoohah Monologues is a replacement title for The Vagina Monologues -- a well-known play about that part of the female body.
"We decided we would just use child slang for it. That's how we decided on Hoohah Monologues," Pfanenstiel said.
They did this after a driver who saw it complained to the theater, saying she was upset that her niece saw it.
"I'm on the phone and asked 'What did you tell her?' She's like, 'I'm offended I had to answer the question,'" Pfanenstiel said.
Some parents said they applaud the title change.
The theater said they're trying not to offend anyone, but the publicity doesn't hurt.
"We hope people understand we're trying to do the right thing. But as far as doing it for attention, we're a comedy club, we do all kinds of shenanigans," Pfanenstiel said.
The play is being brought to the theater by a group of law school students and all of the proceeds are going to various charity organizations.
The director of the play said she was going ask the theater and comedy club to return the title back to its original name.
Lesson for your kids: Your hoohaa is a horrible filthy thing that you should be ashamed of.
I refuse to multiply if no sexual activity is taking place.
And even then I try to avoid it.
It was time to update to SQL Server SP1 and Saturday seems like a good day since the office is largely empty. So I took the baby with me to let Tammy sleep in some and give me a chance to teach him all about being a DBA. He's remarkably attentive, but I think the process may still be somewhat confusing to him and his inability to take notes poses a slight obstacle. But at 10 months, I'm willing to cut him some slack.
It may or may not snow tomorrow morning, so the school district, including Mercer's daycare, is on a two hour delay. I emailed the boss and told him I'd try to get out of bed around 9:30 tomorrow
