I've long felt there was a special place in hell for American Airlines employees. Now I realize that, at the very least, they won't be alone. Northwest Airlines has managed to earn a special place in my heart as well. The last few weeks, I've been "forced" to fly NWA instead of AA. I say "forced" with a smile because while nobody actually held a gun to my head, I still didn't really have a choice in the matter. When you're booking short notice, you take what's available. So... on one of my recent ...
We went to see Stardust tonight, the fantasy story/fairy tale starring Claire Daynes and Robert DiNero, and Michelle Pfeifer (who can still look cougar-hot even with tonnes of makup on to try and turn her ugly). I went in with absolutely no expectations, and seeing that this movie seemingly came out of no-where with very little marketing, I really didn't know anything other than what I saw in the previews. The movie is fantastic. Guys, if you're looking to take a girl on a date movie and she's somewhat ...
I've been tagged (see here for details) So here are a few things I couldn't live without in no particular order: 1. My Husband and My Son: Yes I know--All Together Everyone (AWWWWW). But seriously, they are the reason I get up in the morning and trudge off to work and they are the reason I rush home every day. My husband for his quirky sense of humor and unusual perspective on the world. My son for being that little piece of immortality I leave for the future. 2. My Zen Vision: M MP3 player: I couldn't ...
No shop talk on this post...just strictly personal stuff, but hopefully somewhat entertaining (kind of like how Chris's posts are always entertaining...although I always feel guilty reading them and enjoying his humor because I know it always comes at his expense...). My wife and I do movie night every Tuesday (the theatres here offer a free popcorn/drink with each movie ticket, so its a great excuse...but really, even if they didn't offer it, its great to set aside a night with your honey and spend ...
[reposted] I've only been reading Justice's blog for a few months now and I find both Grey's Matter and Rory's Neopoleon very entertaining. The topics are not always .NET related but the majority are funny. Just check out some of these for hilarity and learning: My grandmother and the Global Assembly Cache (And Star Wars) Scott Bellware vs. .NET Rocks - what it's *really* all about A letter to my WorldVision sponsor child How to Destroy a Childhood Memory in Four Pictures My grandmother and the difference ...
I laugh so hard every time I see the GEICO cavemen commercials and it just drives my wife nuts. We get along so great but we have a completely different sense of humor about some things. Much to her dismay I finally found this. For those other cavemen fans out here, I also just stumbled onto a small blurb stating that one of the networks (ABC ?) is working on a sitcom pilot starring the GEICO cavemen. I hope this pans out, even if it only lasts a season ...
At the Microsoft MVP summit today, Bill Gates gave the keynote to 1800 MVP award recipients from all over the world. Before the session, many people were already in line. My thoughts were to eat breakfast fast and then get in line to get a good seat. In line it was a great experience for me to be able to be with people from all over the world. In front of me were a group from Brazil and they have a great sense of humor even though I had no clue what they were speaking in Portugese. To my right side ...
I'm reading a couple of books right now that I'll be doing reviews on soon enough (well, as soon as I finish them). The first is The EQ Edge: Emotional Intelligence and your Success. The book talks about EQ, or Emotional Quotient and talks about its importance in business...well really in life in general, and how those with high EQ levels should be valued - potentially moreso than those with high IQ's. I've just cracked the cover on this one, so I'll write more on the actual content in a future post. ...
consider this a continuation of this... I barely made it home tonight. Not "I barely made it home" in the sense that I had to pee so bad I barely made it home (which has certainly happened on occasion.) No no, I mean I literally, barely made it home. As in barely survived the flight. As in barely got on the plane. It seems as though fate and the universe were conspiring against me this evening. On the way to the airport, we encountered heavier than usual traffic. Once at the airport, after dropping ...
First let me say that my sense of humor is twisted. You may not agree with me on this one. Carl Franklin and crew who bring you .NET Rocks, a mostly serious podcast about all things .NET, have added a new outlet for their warped sense of humor. Now they already had Mondays, which keeps me in laughing until I cry on my drive to and from work. I now know why that show has been more irregular than usual in being produced. Mark Miller now has his own show called Millahseconds. It is a skit style story ...
David, Steve and everybody else involved did a great job in putting this event together and keeping the chaos at an organized level!! My talk on AJAXPro went really well. 25 or so people showed up and everybody seemed to understand the power of AJAXPro and several of them told me afterwards that they had projects that could use this technology right now. I've talked before about why AJAXPro is better than XMLHttpRequest. It also had advantages over ATLAS (Microsoft's AJAX library) in that AJAXPro ...
I've never been a big fan of Garmin. Mostly because when we started working with GPS a couple years ago, they snubbed Kyle and I when we tried to set up a meeting to see if there was anything we could do to help each other. They told us, "We don't work with other companies". I'm starting to become a fan though. I really like that they blog on a regular basis. Jeff likes his Nuvi and David likes his Edge. Like I talked about yesterday, their mobile product is good for the GPS market. What really won ...
This time I found some other personality test on Tareks' blog. It's a “Blogging Personality Test“. I tried it myself, and here's the result I got: Your Blogging Type Is Clever and Witty Of all blogging types, you're the best with words.Almost every blog post you write has legendary quality.You have a perverse sense of humor and often play devil's advocate.Impatient and picky, you tend to go off on funny rants from time to time. WOW, this is encouraging :-).It seems all possible results ...
For those of you that care about this sort of thing... "Team I.C.E." (and no I'm not going to post a link) is apparently putting the finishing touches on the first XBOX 360 mod chip. Looks like it will be available at the end of this month through various "retailers" for around $70. ("Retailers" was their choice of word, not mine.) The bragsheet says you can direct boot Xbox 360 ISOs, Rips and Dumps. (It also mentions 20-30 wires depending on xbox revision, which I assume are soldered... and that ...
I love this; great sense of humor and very well done.
As I had mentioned earlier, I was really looking forward to Serenity. I was not let down, it was a really good movie with all of the same elements like humor and action which made the tv show great. I was a tiny bit disappointed with the fate of some of the characters, but I guess that's the way that it goes... I hope that a sequel or two will be coming down the road, I'm definitely going to pick up the DVD and help the cause along. And finally, via Wil (in exile), here are some Firefly comics from ...
It was interesting that they only allowed photography of Bill Gates for the first minute of his presentation. Also, you weren’t allowed to use your laptops in the crowd as well – so I ended up taking my notes on paper instead of doing it with Microsoft Word like I normally do. Oh well. So, there was a lot said at the Bill Gates keynote, so I will only go through what I think were the highlights of the presentation. Video – Bill started off with a bit of humor and presented a video ...
Well, I am home now from E3. What an exhausting trip. I couldn't sleep on the Red Eye coming home so I got about 1 hour sleep in 36. I am more rested up now and ready to head back to work in the morning. Thursday at E3 I spent most of the day on the floor of the Expo. Trying to soak in as much as I could. I finally go to go to the Midway and Atari shows. Midway was terrible but Atari was pretty good. They where giving away the best T-Shirts of the show with the “In the beginning there was PONG” ...
You know, I'm to the point in my blogging life where I tell the whole SNR thing (Signal to Noise Ratio) to shove it. Chris recently made an earth-shattering, enlightened comment per one of my posts yesterday: “Now try actually blogging instead of just lowering the SNR.” And I just have a couple things to say about that. In this case, I'm not going to worry about being eloquent either, so prepare yourself (and no offense to the maintainer of this fine site, but I'm a little miffed right ...

I must have a similar sense of humor to Mike Woodring (although I've never met him so I can't say for sure) because I found the following joke ridiculously hilarious:

Q: Why did the multithreaded chicken cross the road?

A: to To other side. get the

ha! I'll be laughing for years to come. Thanks Mike!

Ah, the good old Lorem Ipsum. The best resource for Lorem Ipsum information and generation appears to be http://www.lipsum.com/. That site includes a Lorem Ipsum generator that does a little more than just regurgitate canned sentences. Another (less polished) site is http://www.lorem-ipsum.info/. This second site's benefit is generating Lorem Ipsum in different character sets for web programmers to use against their solutions. Here are some of the gory details from http://www.lipsum.com/. What is ...
Well, I think that the death of my new Bloggie Award has come. When I started the thing, I didn't realize that there was already an official “Bloggie Awards”. This got me thinking though. Scoble has talked in the past about the whole “signal vs. noise“ argument. However, what is it that causes the bit-flip from noise to signal to be flipped? How can a blogger stand out from the crowd? Find a unique hook One might think that the large rotundness that I have might help me stand ...
First, props to my fellow - Glenbard West alumnus - Sean Hayes. He got to play the fun character of Mr. Humberfloob and the voice of the fish! Got to go see the movie tonight at a special preview. It is a fun portrayal of the Dr. Seuss classic that we all know and love. The adult humor infused by Mike Myers makes it a great family friendly film - in other words you won't go crazy if you have to take your kids to see it! The effects are pretty cool at points - when the box spills out into the house ...
