What I'm missing is weather warmer than it is here.  :biggrin:

Podrick, I didn't get a chance to check out the Mercedes. I was stuck in the office until about 11 and then they sent me out to Queens. I actually have to go back again today.

No worries, mang. Zero expectations, equals zero disappointments. I just thought it might be cool if you had time and the inclination.

I think the dealer has assigned a rookie salesman to the internet sales...he's fairly incompetent.  :lol

Sup Pod. Just started up the computer for the day. It was too hot today, so I just did nothing on the laptop instead. It's not much use for anything but watching videos online.

I hope that's a rhetorical question/statement, because I'm far too lazy to answer it.

I'll see where I wind up today. This site is giving us a hard time and it's using extremely old technology which I told them to replace. They're using this antiquated multistation or media access unit (MAU) which always needs to be reset to clear the errors off the line. I was trying to find a photo for it but I couldn't find one.

I would think that since my department is responsible for the communication equipment pertaining to the revenue for the MTA that they would want top of the line equipment and security to ensure better protection of the data. Nope. We just upgraded every subway site to "new"CSU/DSUs. However the technology is fifteen years old.  :facepalm:

Bad working conditions? Junior Doctor labor camps? What's their beef?

New contracts that the government is trying to introduce. The government wants the health service to be more of a full 7-day service, rather than full service in the week with emergency cover and some additional cover at weekends, which is the case in many places at the moment. One thing it wants to do is change Saturdays to "normal" working days that get paid at normal rate, but then increase basic pay by 11% to mostly compensate. As far as I can tell, this is the only remaining sticking point in the discussions - the doctors union refuses to accept that Saturdays should be normal working days. Basically the union insists that a lot of junior doctors will get a pay cut overall, while the government insists that 99% will get paid the same or more on the new contracts. And because nobody seems to want to actually publish their analysis, it's hard to know who is accurate.

But really, when it comes down to it, it's all just bullshit politics.

Basically, we use outdated technology when we should be using something more reliable and secure because one of the networks my department manages is responsible for transporting the data from the payment systems, specifically those metro card machines.

I've spent a couple of hours trying to get this damn exporter to work, and nothing works. It's supposed to export a 3D scene to a VRML file, and I've tried 3 entirely different methods I've found online, but nothing works at all. Screw it.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Hey Willis, hey King, how are you guys on this fine day?
I've been drinking beer since I was 18 and dabbled since I was 16. I have at least 500 beer bottles in my collection and love the fancy shit though my wallet doesn't. I'll drink liquor not even five times a year including shots or mixed drinks. Jack Daniels and Coke is an easy go-to for me. Very smooth nads candy sweet.

Morning peeps
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Went to one last year and had a great time.  A buddy of mine is big into hockey and said "If you think that was fast-paced or hard to follow, the NHL teams make these guys look like they're skating on molasses."

Philly is our closest NHL team and Philly can f*ck right the hell off.  :lol  I'd go to a Flyers game just to cheer for the opposing team.  But then again, I'd do that at an Eagles game or a Phillies game.

However, any one of those instances may land me in the ER.

Awesome. Since Boston Bruins tix are so damn expensive, we go to see the Providence Bruins a couple times a year. Always a great time.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums................or WTF.  ;D
You know that a mark of a great song is if TAC hates it with a special passion.
