      Okay, the person who decided that, when you put in the Dell "Reinstall my Windows XP Please" CD that comes with the system, instead of formatting the hard drive it's just going to add WIndows XP to whatever's already there needs to be shot. I've already spent 2.5 hours on this, and I can just about guarantee that it's not right. The drive isn't formatted, Windows 2k is still on here, all the crap is still on here... I'm going to have to redo this shit some time very, very soon.

      Fuckers. Mother fucking fuckers. Fuck 'em.

      Oh well, it's overtime. smiley0.gif

    • A Little About Me

      14 years ago

      dingolord

      I am a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a warm tortilla shell, smothered in spicy brown mustard.

      I currently have a job as the only IT person in an automotive factory. We make exhaust.

      I have two ex-wives, both in the form of the same person. One of them is dead. The other one is a regular in the Basement, and is somehow convinced that I'm causing "terrible things to happen to her".

      I have one current wife. We've been together for 2+ years, and married for about 9 months. She makes me sandwiches before I leave for work, then flips me off and goes back to bed. I think I love her.

      I have never had a mid-wife, although I find the thought strangely erotic and slightly nauseating all at the same time.

      We will be moving into a new apartment at the end of July. It's a one-bedroom with a loft and washer/dryer. I will probably have no say in the decoration of said apartment, just because I want pictures of Daffy Duck and Marvin the Martian in our bedroom...

      I dislike stupid people, and am not afraid to show it. Sadly, they never realize.

      I currently drive a 97 Saturn with 160,000 miles on it. I would like to drive a 2005 Saturn Ion 3 with less than 100 miles on it. I will likely end up driving any car that someone is willing to give me, as long as it works.

      I am a Christian and a Democrat. I take both fairly seriously, but I will shove neither down your throat, or even mention them off-hand. Um... aside from this line in this post. Nothing more to see here. Please move along.

      I am not bothered by cussing, or cursing, or swearing, or any other goddamn version of the fucking word. So stick that up your ass and smoke it. Dickweed. No, not you, the other guy. I like you.

      My younger brother has been to jail twice. Once for being stupid, and once for being really stupid. I expect him to go back. This seems to be a trend.

      I have an even younger brother, who still lives at home with my mom and goes to high school. He thinks he's cool. One day soon, that'll all change.

      I like different kinds of music. I currently have Demon Days in the car, and all kinds of random stuff on my computer. Or I did, before I deleted it all. Good thing I still have it on a CD or 3... Stupid computer.

      I'm brutally honest, but in the best way. I find it's better than lying, and everyone should be up-front about things and be able to take it. Anyone who can't be honest or take honesty is a pussy. And I say that honestly.

      My credit history blows, thanks to my first marriage and the need to file for bankruptcy. Now banks don't like me. I'm getting close to fixing it, and that makes me happy. Being able to get a new car loan would make me even happier, which I'm pretty sure is why they won't give me one. Banks like to laugh at my pain. They don't like me. I think I said that already...

      I will do anything for my friends, except lend them money. That's what they're supposed to do for me.

      I'm horrible about keeping in touch offline. My mom never hears from me. My best friend only gets a letter from me about every three weeks, even though I get one from her every weekend or so. I never talk to my brothers, unless they call me first and then I try like hell to get off the phone.

      I'm full of advice. Most of it good. The rest usually isn't. So far, my advice hasn't killed anyone. To the best of my knowledge.

      I have a weird sense of humor, but I think it's pretty funny. Maybe a little off-the-wall, but funny. I also like to post things that have nothing to do with other things. Usually for comedic effect.

      You were expecting me to put something that had nothing to do with this post in the last line, didn't you? I also have good comedic timing, which means I'm only funny when it's the right time to be funny. A lot of times, I have a good joke that I can't use because it's time is gone. Poor joke. May it rest in peace. Anyone know the words to Battle Hymn of the Republic?

      I'm good on random facts, but I suck at triva. Go figure. I guess I only know things when I don't need to know them. Like right now, I wanted to be witty and post a random fact, but I can't think of any. Because I need one.

      I like answering questions. Ask me a question, and I'll answer it. If you don't like my answer, then that'll teach you to ask, now won't it?

      Some of these things may no longer apply, like the apartment (which we moved into on 7/30) and the car (which we just got approved for a new one, so banks apparently like me again... but I still have the Saturn, and I drive it and baby it and love it just the same, because the new one is my wife's, not mine), and my credit (see above), and my sandwiches (but the flipping off still happens) but I'm not going to change it. That's not what the internet is for. The internet is for porn. I heard that somewhere.

    • Journal Entry for the Masses

      14 years ago

      dingolord

      I don't know that I really have much to say today. I feel like I'm on the short end of the stick as far as some things go (it's really hard to get your point across when you're purposely being ignored simply because someone is deciding to be a bitch and trying to play the same game she's played for years by rules that never did make any sense to anyone but her, or when people are supposed to be talking to higher-ups about something you need next week that will require at least a day to plan for and they're not getting around to it).

      I also got stuck at a railroad crossing for 10 minutes on my way to work this morning because it got stuck and I was behind a large truck and didn't notice. Just kinda zoned out until the police showed up to direct traffic around the railroad blockers.

      Today is likely just going to be a "shrug it off" day. Apparently, I have a lot I need to try to shrug off...

      Oh, and on a sense of randomness - I ask the small handful of people to whom I sent friend requests to please either accept or deny them. I sent them because I have talked to you via the forums and likely your journal comments once or twice, even if we haven't had a long, drawn out conversation. Although I'm always up for those. I promise I don't bite on the first date.

    • Staff Suckups

      14 years ago

      dingolord

      Ever notice exactly how many people suck up to the staff on this site?

      Wait, let me start this a different way. I don't have a problem with the staff. They make RvB and (occasionally) Strangerhood videos. They keep up-to-date a very well-maintained site. They created an award system on the site to show the people they've made friends with that they really do like them and don't just keep them around for target practice or quotas. They actually go out of their way to be accessible to their hordes of fans... and they are quite hordish.

      It's the hordishness (I think I just made that word up) that ticks me off.

      Yesterday, there were (counting the main page journal posts) 4 threads started by staff that I saw. Two in the sponsor forum, and two on the main page. In total, as of right now, those four threads have a reply count of 664. Most of those (I'm going to guess 75%, or about 500 of them) are simply "Thanks!" or "You Rock!" or "u gyz r teh kewlest!!". They're the exact same types of posts everyone complains about and flames people for... meaningless drivel and worthless wastes of space, but for some reason, when it's done to try to get the attention of a staff member, it all of a sudden becomes ok, because everyone wants to be friends with the staff. Everyone wants a staff award. Everyone wants to be special and say "I've been recognized by the staff" for whatever reason they possibly could have (I'm guessing most of it is just pure ego).

      I don't.

      Now don't get me wrong. If one of the staff started PMing me and was actually cool enough to be my friend, then I'd gladly be friends with them. I've had a run-in with a couple of them (gfunk a few months ago, gus a couple years back), and they seem like decent folks. But I'm not going to go out of my way to try to be noticed. That's just stupid. Especially when you're trying to be noticed with posts like "Yay! I luv u guyz!".

      I mean, geeze. Get some dignity, people! It comes cheap these days... because everyone seems to be getting rid of theirs for little or no money down, and low montly payments.

    • Good Day

      14 years ago

      dingolord

      Ya know, today's been a good day. It had it's moments (I had to leave a "learn to park dumbass" note on a car that parked WAY too close to mine at the store), but all in all it's been pretty good.

      Or I could be slightly intoxicated and minorly inebriated and listening to my wife and mother-in-law and her friend sing karaoke in the living room. Slightly after enjoying talking to my brother-in-law, the first intelligent conversation I've had in months aside from my wife. Which came after the best vodka ever (Belvedere vodka; it's a Polish Rye vodka... try it, it's a sipping vodka and you'll love it, I don't care who you are [unless you're too young, in which case don't get caught trying it, but you'll love it too, and it'll make you a snooty drunk before your time] ).

      Yeah, a pretty good day. Those are so rare anymore.

    • Allergies suck...

      14 years ago

      dingolord

      ... or they would, if I was able to breathe while they were bothering me.

      Actually, the worst part is that I can breathe just fine, but I've got a pounding headache, and whenever I put my safety glasses and earplugs in (I'm a network tech in a factory that makes exhaust pipes, so I have to go down on the factory floor sometimes) I feel like my head is going to explode. Not a pretty explosion, either. Ugly green and purple splotches. Runny ugly green and purple splotches. It's not fun at all. Might need to go invest in some allergy meds and see if that works.

      Aside from that and work just being slow and boring in general, I guess there's not much else to talk about. Anyone else get the new Gorillaz CD yet? Demon Days rocks. Although my wife doesn't like it. Something about taste... I don't remember now what she said. smiley10.gif

      And, yes, for the record, I was just randomly profile-surfing and giving out a few mod points to people that have likely never seen me before. It's not all that random, though... I had to at least think you said something worth it first. I'm a fun guy like that.

      eh... why the hell not. If threads on losing your virginity, what's under your bed, what do you like to drink, and everything else that's come out can sit here and rack up the posts, why not this one? Today, I feel like being a follower.

      So, if you had three wishes, what would you wish for?

      No wishing for more wishes, and no wishing for all your or anyone else's wishes to come true. Anything else is fair game, including wishing for fishes, wishing for dishes, and wishing for quiches. Just no wish wishing.

      Sorry... all the "wish" words were fun to type.

      I can change a tire and have in fact done so on several occasions.

      I'll ask for help if I really need it, but I see no point in inconveniencing someone else if I can do it myself. What infuriates me about that situation is that Libby made no effort whatsoever to help herself. She could have found the iPod Lounge just as quickly as I did. Once I posted it, she could have followed the simple directions. But noooooooooooooo, she zeroed in on poor old Marsh as her savior, even after he told her he couldn't help her.

      You need to tell your friends/family/neighbors/random people you don't even know to start calling before they show up. And change your damn locks dude! Too many people "accidentally" walk in on you naked. I'm starting to think you do it on purpose...

      No I think its just the fact that I love to be naked, and I don't lock doors because I don't feel I have anything to hide, Though I guess your suggestion to valid. Also the girl that came over rang the door bell, it was more of me inbetween changing loads of wash and watching Buffy, that I didn't think about it and just answered the door. Sadly if I was still back in my old be a man-whore stage, I could have gotten some. But I told her no, and that we were just friends. I even put pants on, but I guess when a girl comes over to talk and find the guy naked. It just turns their switch to on.

      It's kind weird here.... a good 15 years ago it used to be that 'super/hyper markets were non existant'... then it all went nuts and they opened up everwhere as the local councils gave grants for companies to build out of town shopping centres.. The 'packaged' meal culture here went nuts..

      In the last few years, after loads of health scares regarding packaged food (fat and salt content), small speciality shops have started to apear, and super markets have started to install butchers / fish mongers back in them again... (many removed them from their shops to save space...)

      were kind doing a full circle here at the moment, and at present were kind of 'in between'...

      Our 'standard sausage brand' is Walls here... just plain old pork sausage meat.. they come either 'skinless', or big n chunkey.. skinless are about the width of an index finger.
      ..

      I tend to mix some honey , mustard and chicken stock together, reduce it down into a sticky paste in a big frying pan and finnish the sausage of in it.... or coat them with the honey / mustard galze before whacking them on the bbq...

      I prefer buying descent sausages from a butcher though... Pork and Sage are quite nice..

      Thanks for the offer, though I fear that most of the stuff has to do with being able to access the server and having certain authorities.

      Thats sort of ironic that only sponsers can delete their threads, when they are the ones paying for the account and doing anything stupid could risk what they paid for. The non-sponsers can go out and make 20 different accounts mod cheat up to a level 20 karma and make hundreds of retarded threads just to be dicks, now not all non-sponsers are dicks that mod cheat but they still don't need to be on their best behavior they have "nothing real" to lose but they still may want to delete a mistaken thread.

      Soccer is football and football is American football and Aussie Rules Footie is in a world of its own...

      The term "soccer" was coined by the British, surprisingly enough. They pulled it out of their league the Football Association. I think it came out of the "association" part, but I'm not sure how... Crazy Brits...

      I don't watch Hockey very much, so I can't really comment there. But if you watch a good soccer game, and I mean a really good one, like the upper end of the English Premier league, (Arsenal, Chelsea, Man United, etc.), just pay attention. Watch the movement of the players, how fast the game is. Everything they do has a point. Slotting a ball on the ground between defenders to a rushing striker 30 yards away is an amazing feat of skill, that rivals anything you'll find in American football.


      Our country is goal-happy. There's more to sport and athletic prowess than numbers on a board. The fact that goals in soccer are a rarity is part of what makes a goal there so much better than a touchdown.

      All right, I could go on for pages about the superiority of soccer, especially now, having just been in Europe and watching some of the finest examples of the game in the world on their version of ESPN classic, but I won't bother you with it.

      I like Football. I respect it. I enjoy watching it. But for me, nothing surpasses soccer.

      Hey... Alexis Bledel is hot. And it's kinda funny... and Christie makes me watch it! Yeah, that's it. She makes me watch it!

      It's not like I sit home alone watching Gilmore Girls. I only watch it when Christie wants to watch it. She records them on the DVR.


      First off which one is Alexis Bledel, second off we all know that you sit at home watching it when your alone its ok.....admitting it is the first step to recovery.

      I have two suggestions for you; one why not make the thread deletable by the creator and fully or semi editable so if they did asccidently make a mistake they can fix it. Two why not make a simple system of review for each new thread before it passes into the forums, RT apparently has quiet a few forum workers that spend much more time ridiculing than thread deleting and forum editing but em to use.
