I would never have guessed... judging by that DP.  ;D  :D

Being a successful psychopath requires a certain level of cunning and self-preservation instinct. So I kind of agree...  :P

Then again, I'm not a power-hungry sociopath :-)

Huh? What's wrong with you? Haven't you read the Forbes top people lists? Don't you want to be on it? They're the role models for the rest of us! We should all try to hurt and injure as many people as possible in the name of saving the children and curing cancer while we're stomping on our co-workers to get to the top! Remember, once you've crippled someone, they're not as easily able to compete against you! And if you can bamboozle people into thinking that your trampling on others is really good for the environment and will save baby seals, then all the better~! It's not just about who has the most toys when they die, it's about making sure that nobody else has any toys! :P

Ok. Silly mode over. :D Errr... maybe. We'll see. ;D

Now, how would I rate things for myself... Let's see...

#1 Show me the money.
#2 Show me the money.
#3 Show me the money.
#4 Show me the money.
#5 Show me the money.


Well, at the risk of sounding shallow... :P

But seriously -- If I'm going to work for someone else, then that's pretty much all that matters.

Advancement is an illusion for the most part.

Short working hours? Well, as long as I'm being well paid for the time I spend, then I'm fine with long hours. Long hours = more showing me the money. ;D

Danger of being fired/laid off? Well, this is a total illusion. Just ask people hit by "austerity". But while we're here, I'd like:

  • A pet unicorn with wings that poops ice cream, farts gold, and burps word balloons that tell the world how wonderful I am
  • 6,000 metric tonnes of rainbow in a can
  • A couple light sabers
  • And a Death Star just for good measure (in case I'm fired/laid off)


Hmmm... What next? Oh yeah. Job satisfaction. :D Nope. Not interested in the least in this. It's just a total lie for picky or unhappy people. I take pride in pretty much everything I do, I'm really in very little danger of this ever being an issue. Even when I'm just going damage control, I'm working to get things as good as possible. Things might not be perfect, but I can certainly be happy with taking something from 1 star to 3 stars. Even easy stuff is good. Heck, you can just feel good about yourself because something was very easy for you. :D <3

l just wana let u know I had a BLAST reading that! :D

Can't argue with the fact that some people would find it handy.

40, don't know how well encryption would work if the fact that I've been corresponding with someone, is in itself a giveaway (eg: talking to potential employers).

So MS rolled out yet another email service:

Digital Inspiration has compiled a "reasons to love it" list.

Some good features listed there, some not so much.

This bit (from the above mentioned article) got my attention...
Outlook makes it easy for you to recover your deleted messages even if you have permanently emptied your Trash bin. Open the “Deleted” folder in Outlook and click the link that says “recover deleted messages.”

- seems like a very good reason to not use the service for anything private if MS is going to hold onto my mail till it decides not to.

MS's reasoning:
With Microsoft Outlook, you can recover email that might have been accidently deleted from your inbox. This is also helpful if your account has been hacked, because hackers often delete all the messages in an account.

Hilarious! If a hacker gets into my account the last thing I want is for him to have the fxxxing ability to resurrect every last one of my deleted mails.  ;D

This feature doesn’t work for child accounts. This way, parents can be confident that when they delete messages from their children’s accounts, they stay deleted.

I have no clue how to create a child account but apparently, that's the way to go.

Meanwhile, someone trolled the Indian contingent.  ;D  I'm more embarrassed about the official who claims she "hogged the limelight" and needs an apology.

Also, TMZ decided to be subtle about things...   ;D

By the way, Nosh made a good joke (above) but has deleted it for some reason. I had seen it before, but it was not in my database (it is now!).

I was a bit smashed. Wasn't sure if it had any universal appeal. ;D
Glad you liked it.


Into a Belfast pub comes Paddy Murphy, looking like he'd just been run over by a train.
His arm is in a sling, his nose is broken, his face is cut and bruised and he's walking with a limp
"What happened to you?" asks Sean, the bartender.
"Jamie O'Conner and me had a fight," says Paddy.
"That little shit, O'Conner," says Sean, "He couldn't do that to you, He must have had something in his hand."
"That he did," says Paddy, "a shovel is what he had, and a terrible lickin' he gave me with it."
"Well," says Sean, "you should have defended yourself, didn't you have something in your hand?"
That I did," said Paddy.
"Mrs. O'Conner's breast, and a thing of beauty it was, but useless in a fight."

Ha Ha! Yes!

How about these words: The 10 Coolest Foreign Words The English Language Need.

Nice compilation. Bakku-shan is remarkably similar to butterface. :D

Esprit d'escalier is a term I recall from Palahniuk's Guts [very NSFW, definitely not reading for the faint-hearted.]

I'll go through the rest of that list once I catch a few winks.

Is that the infamous steak & kidney pudding? :)

My highest culinary achievement (chicken farcha - a slightly localized version of fried chicken.)
I was left to fend for myself and got sick of ordering restaurant food... cooking is such a PITA, I'll just try KFC next time.

Nice write-up. I recently upgraded to one (my mother now has my older iPad) and absolutely love it. It's jaw-dropping beautiful.

iTunes hasn't been buggy for me but it's definitely badly designed. I've set a custom folder for my photos and it syncs those fine. The camera roll album is a different matter. Fortunately, the latest Dropbox has an option to automatically upload images/videos from there so that's one more (completely unnecessary) hurdle overcome.

Have you tried looking for a "select all" button in photo albums? There isn't any.;D Apples' way of making users select a lot of photos on the quick is semi-retarded (and quite hilarious) - you put two fingers on the first image till it gets selected, then without lifting the fingers you start swiping up, down, left, right over other photos and watch them get selected... it boggles the mind why someone thought of this as the right way to go about things. Can it be they believe their average user is quite capable of (mistakenly) hitting select all and delete in quick succession?  :'(

I'm going to have to disagree with you on a few things. Editing photos comes far more naturally to me on a tablet and is one of its strengths.

And the battery life IMO, is not nearly as good as it was on my older iPad, I'd become accustomed to it lasting a very long time. Now I don't have the luxury of just clicking it off in bed and falling asleep. It takes a full five hours to charge and demands to be charged overnight. The device also gets nice and warm but that's merely an observation, not a problem. Some people in harsher climes may actually consider it a feature on cold days. :P

Multitasking gestures are very useful, but they need to come up with a better way of switching apps. I'm not holding my breath.

There's a DC thread discussing iPad apps, do take a look if you haven't already.

I read the first couple of chapters and found the writing to be very amateurish. Dumped it before anything "erotic" occurred.

Curt's recco looks a lot more promising, I'll probably jump ship and go with it too. :)

Ghacks did a writeup on Fast Explorer 2008 some time back. It's not the most intuitive software I've used but it gets the job done.

No no! I meant it as a metaphor for the reaction a fanboy post would receive here (post=garbage, reaction=fire)... guess I just tried to sneak a non-funny post in here.  :)

Assuming the specs above are reliable... widescreen form factor (not ideal for a portable device, IMO), much lower resolution, much lower battery life (or only slightly lower in the much thicker/heavier model). The biggest thing going for it -> it (hopefully) comes sans Apple douchery.

I am not excite. :(
