Get it off your chest: politics, movies, bad TV, stinky people, cable companies, lame websites, crappy tech, Croc sandals, the jerk in the next cubicle, whatever. Point your mouse and shoot! Feeling positive? Head over to the Lovefest Room.
Forgot parking permit. Called to get on "omit list." Got ticket anyway. Firefox crashed during appeal process so have no idea if it went through. FFS. I wonder how much money the university makes off of parking?
When I look at the cost of our daughter's hospitalization, along with the ER & ambulance bill, I am so grateful for the health insurance we get through Eric's job. But however grateful I am, I do not look forward to paying our portion.
I have about seven articles for FreakSugar that I wrote last week. They're still pending in WP and nobody has looked at them or posted them. I've decided I'm doing fuck-all until those articles get looked at and posted.
Because my loan is in underwriting right now, and they know we will have to file our 2013 taxes by Oct. 15th, I have to take my paper return into an IRS office and get it stamped and get a copy of it. Yeah, I know, first world problems. I will be missing a day of Dreamforce to do this. Hopefully just half a day. Unknown.
So, you work for the govt and downloaded one of my apps, and are trying to use it in a purpose and manner for which it was never intended? And you can't get your script to work, so you emailed me to ask me for help writing your script, without mentioning what scripting language you are using? Good thing for you I actually like helping people.

And "I can't do this..." is not the way to ask for help. -cont-
Besides the green beauty that is the Borland (Enterprise Technology Center) grounds, I love that my freeway exit is now "Santa's Village". I love the trees we can see out all of the windows. However, my cube is still just a cube, and I face the computer with my back to the corridor, so I don't get to see the trees.
Yay! After 12 years with the company (being the first employee after the directors) I'm finally getting a work phone. Mind you, when I say work phone I mean they're getting my personal number ported to their carrier on a cheap BYO plan. So my 2 year old battery fucked iPhone 5 is my new phone...
Just a word: If you're getting mounds of FREE work out of me, keep the hyper-criticism to yourself. I can take criticism, but I have my limit, especially when the criticism contradicts itself from instance to instance. I'm sure I can be devoting my time to looking for more jobs that actually pay.
Searches in forums turn up many many postings by people who own properties in East and West Oakland bitching about section 8 and talking about "section 8 people" like we are the scum of the earth and less than human.
