      Christmas

      5 years ago

      This year, in the good spirit of Scrooge, I bought no one anything this Christmas. Partially because I didn't have any money, but that's because I bought myself two things that are sort of expensive. One is sort of a "business expense", the other...well I just wanted it. I don't ask for shit for Christmas though. People who bought/gave me gifts will be given gifts in return, once I have the means to do so.

      Item number one: I have plans for this bad boy.

      Item number two: cooler then you will ever be.

      Chrome OS FTW

      So UPS woke me up today, with a package I wasn't really expecting. Didn't recognize the name or company it came from, so I logically rationalized that it was probably a return of the unabomber.

      I carefully opened the potential bomb-package with a knife, and was greeted by a very strange looking box with a handle. It had no labels, only an exploded-style drawing of a hamster wheel equipped with Jet Engines. Suddenly it jogged my memory, and I was now very, very excited.

      I apparently was accepted into the Google Chrome OS Pilot Program, granting me the very awesome and very matte-black Cr-48. This thing is awesome.

      TRON PART THREEEEEE

      5 years ago

      So I saw it.

      I'm in the process of actually (actually) [actually] writing a review on this one. It strangely feels important.

      Go see the movie on friday. If you've got kids, or younger siblings or cousins or whatnot, take em along. I imagine I'll need to see it about twenty more times before I can start looking it at critically. I felt like a total kid watching this movie, from start to finish. I needed that, very much so lately.

      Kudos, Disney.

      So my friend also has a theatrical poster for me. Nerdy movies and free posters. I think he's either a.) trying to cheer me up or b.) get in bed with me.

      Either way, it's working.

      NO RANDOM FRIEND REQUESTS

      5 years ago

      Actually I don't care. I just suck at naming journals and I needed something relevant with the word 'friend' in it. Sorry.

      I was watching a conference interview/panel with Mark Zuckerberg recently, and the topic of privacy came up. Facebook has gotten some flack recently for their ever changing privacy settings and the policies attributed to them, specifically what people can and can't see on your profile. John Battelle (who was serving as moderator, I suppose, who I also find to be a fairly rude individual) brought up said privacy concerns, and said he doesn't like how certain parts of his profile became visible to people on his friends list; he doesn't want everyone to see everything he puts out there. Zuckerberg said something to the tune of "We believe there's some weight behind the word "friend" - if you don't want them seeing what you put on your profile, what's the point of adding them as a friend? " (That isn't exact of course, but something similar)

      This struck me as interesting - why WOULD you add a bunch of people and then get upset that they can see the things you post? I mean sure, I don't tell ALL of my friends EVERYTHING, but I certainly wouldn't keep an online journal or such and then throw a fit when someone I specifically added suddenly has privileges to view said things. Sure, you don't want your boss to see those drunken photos of you from last night but then...why post them? Or why add your boss? Why set up a bunch of groups and limit the shit out of a group of people when you can just as easily NOT add them as a "friend?"

      There's this weird social protocol attached to online social networking these days, but I've found it really only applies if you let it. If I'm not friends with someone, I don't "accept" or "add" them or whatever. If we were friends and we clearly aren't anymore, I remove them. It doesn't need to be this uber insulting thing that you lose sleep over or have to make a big deal out of. Why write someone an angry message about NOT being friends, and then keep the person listed? It doesn't make sense. If you don't like me, remove me. If you don't want to read the things I have to write...don't read them. If you find them insulting...I totally get it. But I'm not gonna comb through my friends list and say "hmm, ok, these people should read this and these people shouldn't"...thats fucking stupid. Be an adult and make up your own mind.

      I love each and everyone one of you, but I'm not in the business of pleasing people, nor am I one for picking and choosing. And neither should you be. If you don't want to see something, don't look at it. If you don't want to be friends with someone...don't be friends with them. Eat cake and get over it. Then give me the cake you didn't eat.

      Hey, did you hear already about tonights Monday night lunar eclipse, it is supposed to be a full eclipse of the moon, I am not totally sure when it is supposed to be visible for all of us here in the central time zone, but I think it is supposed to begin around 11pm "approx" first the moon will turn sort of orange and then go black, and it will be a long time before it comes back out again, it will be cool.

      info about the eclipse can be read here...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/December_2010_lunar_eclipse

      Yup. Popped the comic con cherry (FINALLY..). Everyone had been trying to get me out there for the past 3 years but shit just kept coming up. I finally said screw it all, I'm getting my ass out there regardless.. and I did. Can't wait til 2012/2013 (deployment next year will prevent me from going in 2011).

      I have to disagree with you on that one.

      If it had been men celebrating, I really doubt anyone would have cared.

      Sure they represent their country, but they're hockey players. And their games are over. It is the achievement of a lifetime. It's quite likely that nothing in their lives will ever come close to that moment.

      I say, celebrate like there is no tomorrow and stomp terra like a god 'cuz you are Olympic champion.

      In reply to uber_chaos, #209:

      Yeah, I got that. I'm not sure I agree with your point - mostly because i don't give a damn. (I come upstairs every night these days, and my wife is watching the Olympics. So I go back down. I'm pretty bored with them, overall. Dunno why - I used to enjoy watching them. This year they irritate me. I guess it's been developing like this for a while, now that I think about it - I haven't really enjoyed watching for at least a decade. So if some people want to act lowbrow - who cares?)

      You don't have a hard drive to USB kit? Or is Mac not simple like that?

      :P

      Well, some hard drives we can't get the data off of. Most, if Windows has become corrupted or there is some sort of HDD failure, we can salvage. But not all of them. But we do try.

    • Sarge806

      6 years ago

      Backup recovery.... in general. If someone wants backups we usually oblige if there's room on the server. But every time we have to wipe a PC or replace a hard drive we HAVE to do backups.

      I guess it's different for a company... at a school everything's internalised. But doesn't Best Buy back up data too?
