C'mon Impeach the Bastard Already

I can’t believe the stupidity of the American public. The media is talking about this like it’s open to interpretation as usual. Bush’s proclamation of clemency is a slap in the face. But I think if Bush literally wiped his ass with the U.S. Constitution it would be a popular clip on YouTube. And it is very likely to be in the next episode of Lil’ Bush. What’s wrong with you people? The only negative of impeaching Bush is that Dick Cheney would be president and I have a solution for you there - just impeach that bastard too.

I Told You So

Well it looks like “Kato” Kaelin has competition for the lowest form of bipedal life. Unfortunately, this guy has reproduced, which puts him out of the running for the Darwin awards. Sad to think that he will be entrusted with a child’s welfare. Let’s face it, it is all about the money. My favorite comment was heard on (Fox?) news where the newscaster said “anyone could be the father”. That’s right, everyone has had sex with Anna Nicole.

Your call is very important to us...Part 3

Part three in a series. Part two is here.

After a lot of promises to have it installed by Friday, and a few Fridays, they finally were able to install my service last Saturday. Of course my phone is disconnected now for no particular reason that anyone at TPC (the phone company) can fathom. Perhaps Monday will bring another visitor to fix that. I cannot bring myself to recount all the horrible “customer service” I experienced since my last entry. But in the end a few people were unrelentless and with their help I am back online.

Your call is very important to us...Part 2

Part two in a series. Part one is here.

My phone company, The Phone Company (TPC)*, has a whole bunch of customer service numbers. They have the latest in voice recognition technology. It asks you to speak your phone number and asks for the last four digits of your social security number and repeats it all back to you in a nice pleasant voice. It works well if you want to find out how much money you owe them. That’s what customer service is all about, right? But if you speak the magic word “representative” then you get put on hold. There is a really neat song that loops without any perceptible break and you get to listen to it over and over again. I think one time I counted 78 loops before I gave up.

No Gaps

I write software for a living. Sometimes the developer of a software program can spend years adding features to software and nevertheless miss the one glaring omission that almost everyone who has used the software has noticed. I worked for one company on a software project ( that shall remain nameless ) where there seemed to be a single serious flaw that was being ignored. Instead everyone was busy with other pet projects. I asked people why this thing wasn’t top priority and was told to get busy on other things. I asked again and again and finally just gave up.

BS blogs moved!

The website has been installed on a new server. Instead of just copying it over I rebuilt the website with more CSS and no tables. If there is anyone out there who reads this stuff, please bear with me as the posts were copied over one by one. Most comments are gone and trackbacks are not (yet) implemented. And I’ll post some new entries soon, of course.
