Ah nosolgia! Voltron is coming to the big screen. Surely I'm not the only one that had all of the lions and ran around pretending to be Voltron? Form Blazing Sword!!!!

Like Riding a Bike...

Apparently coding Perl is like riding a bike, you never forget how. Unfortunately when you get on again you're more likely to fall like you did when you started.

Scope Creep and Other Work Monsters

In school they told us to avoid scope creep and project mismanagement to make projects go well. They forgot to tell us one thing though. We as peons really have no control over that!

Romance, Work and Other Random Things

Well I've been quiet for a bit and for good reason. I met a wonderful woman named Amanda on July 3rd and I've been spending a lot of my time with her instead of my laptop.

Ok so that's the good news, the bad news is that today was the day from hell at work. I really hate Mondays.

And now for the random... ok so there wasn't really any random.

Abbott and Costello

If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their infamous sketch, "Who's on first?" might have turned out something like this:


ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?

COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about buying a computer.


COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou.

ABBOTT: Your computer?

COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.


COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou.

ABBOTT: What about Windows?

COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?

ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with Windows?

COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look at the windows?

ABBOTT: Wallpaper.

COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.

ABBOTT: Software for Windows?

COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to write proposals, track expenses and run my business. What do you have?

ABBOTT: Office.

COSTELLO: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?

ABBOTT: I just did.

COSTELLO: You just did what?

ABBOTT: Recommend something.

COSTELLO: You recommended something?


COSTELLO: For my office?


COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office?

ABBOTT: Office.

COSTELLO: Yes, for my office!

ABBOTT: I recommend Office with Windows.

COSTELLO: I already have an office with windows! OK, let's just say I'm sitting at my computer and I want to type a proposal. What do I need?


COSTELLO: What word?

ABBOTT: Word in Office.

COSTELLO: The only word in office is office.

ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.

COSTELLO: Which word in office for windows?

ABBOTT: The Word you get when you click the blue "W".

COSTELLO: I'm going to click your blue "w" if you don't start with some straight answers. OK, forget that. Can I watch movies on the Internet?

ABBOTT: Yes, you want Real One.

COSTELLO: Maybe a real one, maybe a cartoon. What I watch is none of your business. Just tell me what I need!

ABBOTT: Real One.

COSTELLO: If it's a long movie, I also want to watch reels 2, 3 and 4. Can I watch them?

ABBOTT: Of course.

COSTELLO: Great! With what?

ABBOTT: Real One.

COSTELLO: OK, I'm at my computer and I want to watch a movie. What do I do?

ABBOTT: You click the blue "1".

COSTELLO: I click the blue one what?

ABBOTT: The blue "1".

COSTELLO: Is that different from the blue w?

ABBOTT: The blue "1" is Real One and the blue "W" is Word.

COSTELLO: What word?

ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.

COSTELLO: But there are three words in "office for windows"!

ABBOTT: No, just one. But it's the most popular Word in the world.


ABBOTT: Yes, but to be fair, there aren't many other Words left. It pretty much wiped out all the other Words out there.

COSTELLO: And that word is real one?

ABBOTT: Real One has nothing to do with Word. Real One isn't even part of Office.

COSTELLO: STOP! Don't start that again. What about financial bookkeeping? You have anything I can track my money with?

ABBOTT: Money.

COSTELLO: That's right. What do you have?

ABBOTT: Money.

COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?

ABBOTT: It comes bundled with your computer.

COSTELLO: What's bundled with my computer?

ABBOTT: Money.

COSTELLO: Money comes with my computer?

ABBOTT: Yes. No extra charge.

COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?

ABBOTT: One copy.

COSTELLO: Isn't it illegal to copy money?

ABBOTT: Microsoft gave us a license to copy Money.

COSTELLO: They can give you a license to copy money?


(A few days later)

ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?

COSTELLO: How do I turn my computer off?

ABBOTT: Click on "START".......

Never Forget

This morning's attacks on the tube in London are a reminder of what the terrorists are capable of doing. It has been almost four years since September 11th, 2001, but the threat to the United States as well as the rest of the western world is still present. Let us never forget the victims of terrorism.

Women Confuse Me

Women confuse me as always, but unless I'm totally wrong, I think that I may have found a nice one that actually likes me too. Look for updates, but I hope that this turns into more than one date. For those of you that care, she works for an eye doctor, she's 25, cute, and fun to be around.

Here I Go Again

Well here I go again. I'm trying Internet dating again. Today I'm meeting a woman for a first date here in Jacksonville. She seems very nice over the phone.

George Washington Nominated to the Supreme Court

What if???

"Anchorman: The President nominated George Washington for the Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left by Sandra Day O'Connor. Democrats immediately attacked Washington for his environmental record of chopping down cherry trees."

Click here for the newscast.

I thought this was cute.

Supreme Court Showdown

Well the first of the retirements has been announced and before there's a nominee the Democraps have started the campaign against the nominee. Why is it that it was ok for liberals to be appointed to the court, but if a conservative *gasp* is put on the court it is a travesty. It's time to come back to the center for both parties, but that doesn't mean that people have to sit on the fence on every issue. It's ok to have convictions!
