Great Quotes #243

Here's a quote from the Daily Show that I really agree with.

"there are basically two kinds of businessperson one can choose to become. There are those who violate all rules of ethics, morality and human decency in the name of making a blood-stained buck only to have their lives shattered as they're torn away from their families and mistresses and shipped off to do decades of hard time in prison, and there are those who don't get caught."

Been a While

It's been a while since I last blogged.  In the last few months I have been working a new job and have made the switch from PC to Mac.  I've always been against the Mac movement, but then after I tried a macbook and put windows on it I was satisfied.  

I used to think that I couldn't get my daily tasks done with a Mac.  After a couple weeks I was comfortable and happy.  

There is only one big drawback.  The Enterprise Environment!  Microsoft Exchange is a PITA(pain in the A**) to use with Macs.  I would love to see Microsoft and Apple get together and make a smooth connection between Exchange and OSX. (Entourage isn't there yet)

UNDOISM

UNDOISM

The belief that anything can be undone. Doing, without considering the consequences.

The world we live in suffers from Undoism. People are unwilling to accept responsibility and are always hoping for a chance to do it again or fix it. People wish and sometimes assume that they can CTRL + Z their way out of things. That's probably why so many people are in prison and why so many marriages fail.

Many times, you don't get a second chance. Just ask a member of your local bomb squad.

Buying a Wii from Capitalistic Hosers

I've been looking for a Wii for the last couple weeks and the experiences I've had have really pissed me off. The stupid capitalistic Americans that are too lazy to get a real job are waiting at Best Buy and Circuit City to buy up as many Wiis as they can so they can be "business owners" that resell what has already been resold.

The results of these activities are sad. Stupid people seem to be selling overpriced stuff to other stupid people. In fact, Ebay should change it's name to "Idiot's Exchange". That happens to be the best summation that I can find for what I am seeing. As stupid people bid a Wii up to twice it's MSRP the capitalistic geniuses go buy all of them from the retail stores and sell them to the idiots on ebay. I wouldn't be surprised if the employees at the retail stores are just buying them before the doors open and re-reselling them from home. They are probably making more from that than they are from being Customer Service Representatives anyway.

This rant hasn't made too much sense because I don't wright well wen im on my soopbox.
But if there are any stupid Ebay scalpers out there I have a better way to make money. (see below)

Pay Toilets - the ultimate money maker!

Not the kind you pay to get into, NO that's discouraging. Pay toilets will make you a lot of money if you put the coin-slot/bill-accepter on the INSIDE! Yes, nothing says welcome to America like a public toilet that won't let you out unless you pay.

Graduation Day

Well, I just got my Bachelor of Arts from Utah State University. Several years ago someone asked me what I was going to do with my degree when I got it. I responded, "I'm going to hang it on the wall!"

Screencasting

Here is a screencast about Google's translation service.

I tried linking to the html file, but it just lagged and didn't show up on either firefox or IE. So, linking to the swf, it works fine.

Video Sharing Assignment

Though the lessons were taught out of order, I believe this is the assignment to post for today.

I would have posted the other video, but I don't know if anyone else in the commercial wants to be available to the world. So I made a silly little video to meed the requirements.
