So I planned to do laundry this afternoon. I bring a load downstairs and discover that my upstairs neighbors are using my machines and my detergent! WTF?! So the next time I hear one of them head down there, I grab a box I had to bring down there anyway and “conveniently” bump into a […]Read More Cleaning Day
To: Christine G. I just thought you’d be pleased to know that your department consumed 64 Wendy’s chicken nuggets today. -Patrick Delahanty Senior Web Applications Developer I was responsible for 19 of them myself. 🙂 I’d have done 20, but I got ripped off and was missing a nugget from one pack. Grrr… (Of course, […]Read More Status report for my boss
Finally working on my little Bakuretsu Con 2002 report. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any cosplayer photos…but Adam was nice enough to say I could use his. (…and he’s credited appropriately.) Thanks Adam! 🙂 Still have to write the Sunday report and summary though. Now that I’ve started, those should be done soon enough.Read More Bakuretsu Con 2002
Okay, this is completely stupid. Apparently a division of TMP Worldwide is “People.com”. Their web site is techpeople.com…because People Magazine has the real people.com domain. It strikes me as incredibly stupid that anyone would name a company after a domain they don’t have. “Gee, maybe I’ll go start a company called ‘Yahoo.com’ and put the web site […]Read More People.com or People.com?

“Now they have this new Hood light block milk bottle, but I already have something that blocks the sunlight out of my milk bottle. It’s called… my refrigerator. I have another level of insulation around that called… my house. It cost me about $200,000 to build that little ecosystem.” – Paul NardizziRead More Something Good About Hood
Yesterday was the silver (25th) anniversary of “CHiPs”. Why do I care? Because I was stupid enough to have made the world’s first web site for the show. (It started as a joke! I don’t even really like the show!) Anyway, over the last seven years, the site has grown and grown from information people […]Read More Silver CHiPs
People said I needed some pictures in my cube. I finally hung one. 🙂Read More A thousand words…
Jeff Taylor, our company’s fearless leader (or one of them anyway), promised us juice in the office this morning. There wasn’t any. My co-workers and I were really looking forward to getting to the office and having some juice today…but we were denied. Man, don’t promise things you can’t deliver.Read More Where’s my juice?!
