      You missed him. He was just here a minute ago.

      Damn.

      Ah well. Not like it was all that special anyway. If the bastard really cared, wouldn't he be around more often?

      Yeah, that's what I thought too. What a jerk, right? Screw him. We don't need him. We have better things to do.

      ...

      I'm bored.

    • Goodbye Yellow Face!

      11 years ago

      dingolord

      As of right now, I'm at around 24 hours to go before I'm home again. My plane leaves Jacksonville at 1:50pm on Wednesday, which means I get to leave St. Augustine at around 10:30 am (an hour drive to the airport, then drop off the rental, then get my tickets, then deal with security, then find the right gate, then wait for mechanical problems to be resolved, then wait for the crew to get back to their plane... oh, wait, that already happened in Dayton on my way down here to the plane next to mine). I should get to Dayton at around 6:00, and back home around 7:00 (depending on how badly covered in ice my car is after sitting in an outside parking lot for four days). Later if anything silly happens (like them asking for anyone who's willing to voluntarily bump themselves, because there's no way I'm going to miss that twice).

      Conference ended at around 2:00 pm today, and I've spent a few hours just sitting in my room staring at the walls. This whole "being social" thing is tiring. I don't know how some of you do it the way you do. It all started for me on Sunday evening with three hours of cocktails and snacks by the pool. Three hours of talking to dozens of different people. Finally, one of the girls who works for the company hosting the party came over and talked to me about things I actually cared about (she works on the hardware side so I could actually understand her, unlike the programmers and warehouse managers which made no sense to me at all... didn't hurt that she was awesomely cute, too) which killed about an hour and made the whole thing a little easier to deal with. Generally, there were a few people I didn't mind talking with (almost all the nicest people with the company hosting the conference were awesomely cute girls who had no problem talking to me for awhile, because I wasn't a programmer or some other kind of weirdo), but mostly I ended up talking to vendors (occasionally insightful), listening to speakers (booooooring, but I did find a few nuggets of interesting things), and making small-talk with programmers and other kinds of weirdos. For two and a half days, including breakfasts, lunches, breaks, random encounters in the bathroom, etc. My brain is tired. It gets to take Wednesday off, but then it has to go play nicey-nice in Toledo on Thursday. Sigh.

      I'm also seriously fast-fooded out. The food at the hotel was decent, but any time I had to eat by myself I got fast food and sat in my room like the anti-social potentially-homicidal maniac I am. Sunday night was three hours of drinks and snacks, so I didn't eat out. Monday and Tuesday breakfast and lunch was provided at the hotel during the conference. Monday night I did eat out at a rather nice place with a (really cute) girl who was working one of the vendor booths (we sat there for two hours bouncing between talking about nothing and talking about how married we each were, not counting the hour or two of talking we did before dinner while all the weirdos were drinking and being strange - nice girl, but we can't be friends; she's in sales, and salespeople don't have friends - they have clients, and I'm not in her territory [okay, that line was awesomely entendre-y]). Saturday lunch, Saturday dinner, Sunday lunch, and Tuesday dinner were all fast food. Checkers and Krystal even, which means it was all extra good for me (anyone who failed their "detect sarcasm" saving throw needs to take 1d6 damage from the bitchslap trap hidden behind it... wow, that was really geeky, even for me).

      Seriously, though, there are few situations where I can honestly say that I may have easily been in the running for "best looking guy in the room", but this was definitely one of them, and it made me feel damn good about myself. Most of the cute ones were married, but I know that because they seemed to always be somewhere within reach (one of the non-married ones started getting kinda flirty there at the end, too... it was fun). Needless to say, being happily married and all, nothing happened, but that doesn't mean it wasn't fun anyway. I'll have to come back again next year.

      I'll also say this, having been to both Florida and California now:
      California Sun > Florida Sun (because the Cali sun knows how to be discrete and polite and not just jab itself all over you like Florida sun does).
      Florida Girls > California Girls (oh yeah, by quite a margin, too)
      Florida traffic = California traffic (oldest city or not, add some lanes for pete's sake!)

      And that's my report. Somehow, I got through the whole thing without mentioning any of the work-related things I now have added to my list thanks to this silly conference (quite a list, too... we really underutilize this software). But, really, the girls are much more important than the software. So was the fast food, for that matter. Gotta have priorities.

    • Sunny (someone shut it off!) Florida

      11 years ago

      dingolord

      Seriously, don't they get enough sun here? You'd think they'd be sick of it. I know I am, and I just got here. I went to a Sonic for lunch (you know, cuz I'm adventurous like that - new town, new Sonic) and saw a sun-faded "Employees Only" sticker on the door to the building that was completely in the shade. There was no way for the sun to hit this sticker, except maybe for three minutes every morning as the sunrise shines playfully through the window of the nearby KFC and happens to send a beam bouncing directly onto this sticker - only way I see it happening. And yet, the sticker was faded to almost unreadability by the relentless sun.

      Go away Yellow Face!

      Airports suck. I walked in the Dayton airport this morning (albeit, not a very large one, which was good) at 6:00 am. My flight was at 8:00. I got to the ticket counter, fought with the online eticket thing (the number plastered all over my itenerary that says "confirmation number": not the right number; the weird alphanumeric mentioned in an aside in the itinerary once, however...) and finally got my ticket. Then I couldn't figure out what to do with my bag. Woman behind the counter says "I have your bag label", so I give her my bag and walk away. It's important to note that she did not try to stop me, nor flag someone down to stop me, nor anything otherwise helpful at this point. I go over, go through security (no shoes + tile floor equals TEH AWESOME!!1!), go through the concourse, get all the way to my gate at the far end of the building (cul-de-sac gate), sit down to relax, and hear my name paged to come back to the ticket counter for my bag. Apparently, by "I've got it", she meant "I ain't doin' shit" and left it where I set it without telling me anything as I walked away. I'm pissed that she didn't bother paging me before I had to walk the entire length of the airport either. So I go back down, drag my bag 5 feet to the woman who could take it (who wasn't allowed to just go get it, thanks to our lovely security procedures - fucking terrorists) to run it through the X-ray, then go BACK through security and all the way back to my gate again. Good damn thing I got there early!

      That being said, AirTran is actually a rather decent airline (unless you have to check a bag, apparently). Both flights were smooth up and down, they have XM Radio receivers in each seat (which helped my mood quite a bit... I like Flight 26), and I found out that orange VitaminWater is good stuff. Only thing I slightly regret is that I barely missed an opportunity to voluntarily bump myself to a later flight out of Atlanta and score a free roundtrip ticket - old guy got there first while I was dithering. And I was, in fact, dithering. It was quite a sight.

      Right now I'm in a shitty Quality Inn (Just because it's in St Augustine FL, and it's called the "Quality Inn Historic" doesn't mean it's somehow better than other Quality Inns. It's still a shithole. Apparently, "historic" means "not updated since the 70s". At least it has free internet.) doing homework (well, after this entry at least) and paying $150 for the first night (stupid redneck Daytona race thing tomorrow). Later I get to go get something to eat, by myself (which I hate) somewhere nice (which I'd like more if I wasn't by myself, but it's the only way to avoid the rednecks here for the stupid race) in my rented Ford Edge (which would be a nice car, but it's a SUV, and I'm not really a fan of those; plus, I happen to know exactly where its exhaust system came from, and that bothers me).

      If you had trouble keeping up with those parenthetical trains of thought, you shouldn't be reading my journals.

    • Florida, here I come

      11 years ago

      dingolord

      Well, not yet, but Saturday. Saturday the 16th I leave for Florida to attend a conference for a piece of software we use. I don't expect to get much out of it, and I plan to be bored to tears for a few days, but they insisted I go to Florida in February, and who am I to argue with them? Besides, I got my corporate credit card the other day and I'm itching to use it the way it was intended - to buy drinks at overpriced hotel bars.

      I come back on Wednesday the 20th, sleep for a few hours, then I get to drive to Toledo on Thursday. Fun, huh? I've decided that next Friday I'm just not going to go to work. They can deal with that.

      Beyond that, I'm spending way too much time on Facebook playing with My Heroes Ability. Mainly because I'm lame. But I'm level 16 lame, which makes me awesome. A lame kind of awesome.

    • Theme song

      11 years ago

      dingolord

      Some things in life should not be taken lightly. Like allergies, which are currently killing me today; my eyes look like a racoon who is allergic to raccoons. Like sex, which can make and break relationships, as well as makin' babies. Like two tons of bricks... which aren't light and can't be taken lightly - they weigh two tons!

      One major member of that list is choosing your own personal theme song. Lots of people just want to jump right in and say "yeah, that song is me", and then change it all the time. That's not the way a theme song works. You have to find that perfect representation of yourself in someone else's music. Not just who you want to be, or who you wish to be, but who you are. (aside: I wanted to put a joke right here, but I can't find a link to the stupid video I was looking for, so you'll just have to guess. Stupid internet with its "anyone can play" rules.)

      There are a lot of songs on the Cowboy Bebop Soundtrack that I like. In fact, my personally-reorganized CD of some of the music is the most played CD in my car. It's certainly better organized than the CDs themselves are (why would anyone ever start a CD with something as depressing as blue?), and I like the songs I picked for it (although going back through them all, I may need to remake the CD to swap some in and swap some out). There's one song in particular, though, that just seems to fit me. One song that makes me think, "yeah, if I was walking down the street, this is the song I'd want to hear in the background," every time I hear it. One song that always puts me back in a "me" mood, no matter what kind of day I've had, or how riled up I am. A song that's as laid back as I am, yet tells it like it is and won't take no gruff from noone. On a harmonica, no less. I gotta learn me how to play one o' them harmonica things.

      Without further ado, I present my theme song. A little song strangely titled spokey dokey - but if you ask me, that adds to its charm.
      It's just so... me. Like, totally.

    • Breakers > Fuses

      11 years ago

      dingolord

      Finally got the crappy fuse box in the house changed out with a brand new breaker box. It's nice. No more running to the store in the morning because we blew the fuse in the bathroom and everyone has to get ready for work still. No more spending four-bucks-a-pop (or, in this case, per pop) for some stupid screw-in waste of time. Now I can just go out and turn the thing back on.

      Next step, making the circuits in the house make a little more sense.

      Now, I'm not an expert on how electricity was run back in the 60's when my house was built, but I'd like to think I know a few things (and the electrician who worked on my fuse box definitely does). For one, if you have a fuse labeled "Garage", why would you only put one stupid frickin outlet in the garage on it, and leave the overhead light and such on the living room circuit? For that matter, why put the living room, garage, and two bedrooms on the same circuit if you only have one frickin outlet in the garage on a circuit all by itself?? Why are there no power outlets in the bathroom, yet I blow the bathroom circuit all the time because it's also tied in with the master bedroom, overhead lights in the kitchen and laundry, AND an outlet in the living room? Why are the fridge and washing machine on the same circuit, but the other two outlets in the kitchen are all by themselves? And where the hell do two of these wires even go? Nothing turns off when you disconnect them!

      Electrician was a nice guy, though. He'll be back in the morning - he forgot his sledgehammer. Which he needs to drive an eight-foot copper tube into the ground so we can actually have an earth ground now (which he decided to do simply because it needed to be done). He also, completely unasked, added a pullchain light on its own circuit (so I can use it later) in the attic crawlspace, and an additional ground-fault outlet on a 20A circuit right next to the breaker box in case I need it. Neither of these were hard or anything, but they certainly do add to the house.

      Now I just need to get him back in here when I have more money to help me segregate these circuits a little better. Either that, or I'm going to run a long extension cord into the garage from the back bedroom to plug all my computer stuff into, and I'm going to run another one from the bathroom to the other garage outlet. I'm not above that.

    • Taxes suck

      11 years ago

      dingolord

      /journal (just to irk Frank)

      Last year, I owed $181 in Federal taxes, and got $200 back in State taxes. Because of that, in 2007 I paid an extra $50 per paycheck into Federal taxes to help offset that. I'm really glad I did, because we fell in a different bracket this year, and even with the extra $50 a paycheck ($1400 extra in taxes), we still owed $74. If I hadn't paid that extra money, that would have been $1474. That would have SUCKED.

      Then I kept entering deductions. It was unimpressed with our measley house interest and insurance. It laughed at our property tax deduction. It especially skoffed at our "tax preparation fee" credit of a whole $25 from last year's TurboTax. It also didn't seem to care too much about our tiny little community college tuition payments. But then it asked us some questions about our school, and we told them it's our first time going.

      BAM. HOPE CREDIT AHOY! Suddenly, our $74 owed became almost a $2800 refund. That's nice.

      Although I'm apparently still going to have to rework my W-4s. Again. I love W-4s. It's like a big guessing game. What combination of claimed deductions and extra money will I have to pay this year? Who knows... but I can guess at the beginning of the year! Wheeeeeeeeeee!

      Oh. And I owe the state of Ohio $50 this year. Stupid. They'll get it on or around April 15th.

    • Some days just go downhill

      11 years ago

      dingolord

      I just finished working a 16-hour day, and it's mostly my own fault. Let me start where I left off.

      Yesterday didn't go anywhere near planned, but I got everything done. I went in in the morning, went to the desk of the chick whose help I needed, and she wasn't there. I went back to mine, sent her an email to call me when she was available, and started on math homework. Spent FOUR HOURS on math homework, still didn't hear from her. Went back down, asked another girl in the office if she was here today, she was, so I went and got a box of equipment. Left that on her desk with a note to call. She finally called around 1:30. Once she helped me swap my good equipment for her older equipment, I was able to call Toledo and tell them we could finally turn off this ancient server that, as far as we knew, was only still connected to the old equipment that was now in my hands. They did, and I had to fix two more pieces of equipment on-site that I didn't know were connected. After the bad night at Ryans, I didn't eat dinner anywhere else in the hellhole that is Elkhart, Indiana and had a Hickory Farms Beef Stick instead. That was all I'd had to eat yesterday.

      This morning I woke up and left Granger. 4 hours drive later, I arrived in Troy - and my phone rang. Apparently, LOUISVILLE also had some equipment that needed the server we had just turned off, and it broke lots of things. The only solution - go to Louisville. I had a few hours of things to do in Troy first, so I did those, then stopped in Franklin long enough to get gas and go to the bathroom at home (the two are not related), then continued driving south to Louisville. Took me about three hours there to get everything sorted out, then drove back. 8 hours driving + 8 hours work = 16 hour day.

      To make matters worse, because I didn't even touch my computer or email today until after I got home at 11:30, that means I'm now behind on other things I have to do, which means my Saturday just got longer. Oh, and I may have to go to Troy on Sunday to do some wiring that I got yelled at about today, even though it was Maintenance's fault for not finishing what they needed to finish first. Next week I lose two days to a trip to Toledo again, then lose Thursday to go to the campus and take a stupid math test that we can't take online (there's 4 of those this quarter... what good is an online class with offline tests??). Plus all the other homework I need to get done.

      I'm thinking about setting fire to something. Who's with me?

      Oh and

      Not every piece of dirt that flows along the internet can become a lump of gold. At the time, I was simply looking at the fact that I hadn't posted anything in quite some time, and was considering not posting anything again. Being me, that didn't seem like such a bad thing. I'm not very personable, after all, so fading off once again into the sunset didn't seem like such a bad idea. But, another part of my brain kicked in and said that I needed to at least do something so Frank didn't come hunting for me with spear and shotgun and stab me in the eye whilst shooting me in the foot.

      All that being said, I had just finished four hours of math homework, and still had four hours of psychology and management homework to do, so be glad you at least got what you did, because the last thing I felt like doing was being witty.

      As for the poor kid whose journal didn't get read, thems be the breaks. He'll have to learn sometime that the world isn't fair, and I think now's a good time. Besides, what's the internet without depressed kids? I think you're actually helping the internet economy by making another one. Good job!

      In a random aside, apparently my watchlist decided to drop you for some reason. I fixed that just now. I came to your profile and thought "Wow, that doesn't look like the last journal entry of his I read. Why didn't I get an alert?" Stupid website. Computers just screw everything up, don't they?

      Yeah. If only you knew someone in the IT industry. Damn your boss for thinking a journalist major might call a source and do some research...


      Har har har...

      Yeah. If only you knew someone in the IT industry. Damn your boss for thinking a journalist major might call a source and do some research...


      Hmmmm...

      If only it were that simple. Combine other elements with being told I ask too many questions and then, in the same breath, accused of not asking enough question... ><

      It was all me. It was the obvious answer to your question, given your love of all things Your Mom. smiley6.gif

      In fact, after I posted it and had hit the My Homepage button I caught a glimpse of "your mom" in Eric(2)'s post right below it and had to come back and read what he wrote.

      Oh yeah? Well your mom is so lame that, when she parks in a handicapped spot and gets out, people are all like, "What's she doing driving? She has no thumbs!"

      Take that...

      Oh, and you're mom is lame.

      It's true. When we do it, she has to prop herself up on a crutch...

      'Kay, just curious. It looks like there's some really good games on PS3, and their new "Home" thing looks cool... It's just too darn expensive fer me...

      Xbox 360! Gawd, you're such a n00b! [/fanboy]

      Emulators > *


      Agreed.

      Did I know about this animosity between you and current consoles? I agree, of course, that the next gen machines are far too expensive, but I've definitely gotten my money out of my 360.

      Just came across this in the Texas Real Estate Commission's standard purchasing contract:

      Seller at Seller's expense shall turn on existing utilities for inspections.


      This is pretty much the standard boilerplate contract that we use here in Texas. Was there similar language in your contract? If so, bam, that's gold for you.
