Journal: I am not a lawyer!

Journal by johnkoer

If you have been reading slashdot for any amount of time, you know the term IANAL. For those of you who don't know, it means I Am Not A Lawyer, and it is used when someone gives some pathetic attempt at legal advice. A few days ago I saw someone post:

IANAL, but I read a lot of slashdot

I thought this was one of the funniest things I had read all week, but it got me thinking, there must be many more of these types of responses that could be equally amusing, so here are a few I came up with:

IANAL, but:

-I watch a lot of Law and Order
-I f**ked the fat chick from The Practice
-I was the retarded guy on LA Law
-I have been sued by the RIAA
-I have made several appearences on COPS
-I was a defendant in The People's Court
-Judge Judy has told me "Shut your mouth" on more than one occasion.
-I did stay at a holiday inn express last night
-I'm Troy McClure and you may remember me from such rants as "I hate the RIAA" and "When will the M$ viruses end."

Journal: Bored on a Sunday Morning

Journal by johnkoer
Well, I am kinda bored this morning, so I figured I would try out this slashdot journal that I have been hearing so much about (not really, I just needed an intro to this entry). I have a lot more free time now that I am not spending my evenings and weekends looking for a new job. That's right, in this crappy economy I was able to find a new job. Now that I have this free time, I am working on a few side projects, as well as playing some different video games. The first side project I am working on is "Dawn of Light", it is a DAOC server emulator. I have just started writing scripts and I am doing some documentation work to teach others how to write scripts.

Check out the project here:

DOL Server

and check out my documentation here:

My DOL Documentation

Once there is a little more, the documentation will probably be moved over to the main server, but I am still waiting on feedback before I delve into other aspects of the scripting.

Fundamentally, there may be no basis for anything.
