My tech knows a lot... he's bright, he's experienced and in many cases he can put my limited knowledge to shame...


...but I just helped him trouble shoot devices using old DOS commands...


Heh.. I like feeling smart sometimes, even if it makes me feel old...

Going for gold...

...well, Joli gold... but I'm way too busy to journal as much as it would take...


Today's randomness...


...all the visitors this week have left my office as of 11:30 this morning.... THANK JEEBUS!


...I've hit my threshold of spending $1000 today... got 3 servers off of E-Bay. Pretty good deals to get 3 for $1000 instead of one of these for $9000....


.....there is a box of Tim Horton's coffee on the desk behind me. A whole box. No one else is here to drink it. I might just induce a heart-attack today if someone doesn't take this away...


...next trip, Wednesday to Louisville, again. Yet again... but after this I might not travel again until the end of June... whoa... what the hell am I going to do if I'm not collecting frequent flyer miles?

Housekeeping...

I must discuss housekeeping with the employees tomorrow.


Too many messes left around at the end of the day. We don't have a maid service here. We're all adults -if someone spilled sugar on the counter making their coffee (or tea) they should know enough to clean it up before the ants decide to.


Not like I don't have enough to clean with the assploding toilet and all the packing supplies from deliveries... gah.


I need an agenda for tomorrow's meeting... I think this might top the list.

I have an idea. Give Brad a badge and tell him that he actually IS Sheriff and has to clean up the town :)

This is always an issue. In our office the top thing that pisses me off is the empty coffee pot.



No one seems to be capable of brewing a pot of coffee. They leave 2 friggin empty post on the coffee machine. I swear I make 3 or four pots of coffee each day and only end up drinking 2 cups.



And the mess people leave behind is also appaling. The company ended up contracting with our office cleaning service to have a FULL TIME guy dedicated to keeping the cafeterial area clean. Of course we have close to 300 people working in the facility and using the cafeteria area, but still, if people would just learn to clean up after themselves the company could save about $40K/year.



Come down HARD my friend!

I got the answer



get KC to your place, he makes coffee and what he misses the ants will clear up anyway



get Brad and the others to go over to KC's and make plastic all day



.... s'easy





 

The Inspiration....

Oh, what it means to be someone's inspiration...


...to inspire a person to words, or actions. To inspire someone to think deeper and consider more. To inspire someone to love deeper and feel more...


...but does anything feel better than to inspire another person to greatness? To reach a higher level than they ever thought was possible? To give them the power to achieve their own potential?


Consider that... my own little fortune cookie.

Just looked at my "Friend Lists you are on" link... I must admit I clicked it by accident. Meant to change tabs.


Anyway, it is surprising to see at least 50% of people who have added me to their friend list still haven't replaced their Avatar picture since the March Meltdown.


Friends? I think not...

Kudos to Hellequin and Oceane for complimenting people at random!


That is my compliment to them - for not getting dragged into negativity and drama, and finding something positive to say about people today!


*applauds*

Anyway... compliments for today.... I am going to send a sincere compliment to Imagesinwords for being such an excellent leader of House Eternal, an ambassador to the enitre society of VR and for being an inspiration as a person.


Kudos.

I spent the vast majority of the afternoon picking dirt out of the root-ball of the fallen pine tree in my back yard.


It left a huge hole when it toppled. The roots are still clinging to as much Earth as they can hold. The root ball will be to large and cumbersome to move with all the dirt on it...


...so.. yeah. Swinging an axe. Picking at the dirt with a shovel, a bar and a hammer...


After all the work I did Saturday, everything hurts now... I won't bitch, I just need some sleep.


Maybe my feelings of being completely annoyed will go away with a good night sleep too....

So I had a busy day... mowing mostly... first time all year it's been dry enough, and the weather was good enough, and I was actually in town and could do it...


..it was more like taming the lawn than mowing it.


Then I had to go to the office and mow there too. The lawn was horrible. Obviously not cared for by the previous owners since they were foreclosed on in September.


But... the wonderful surprise... I get to the office and Morri is there... cleaning, straightening, organizing... on a Saturday afternoon.


Always putting in the extra effort.


She's amazing.


Virtually the only evidence I have against the phrase "you can't hire good help these days..."


Thank you!

I can give you the coffee, but the hand has to be yours. But when you are finished, I can give you a list of names that I would like for you to slap for me.

The months and travel have taken their toll on my poor laptop... it's time to put in a new hard drive and reformat the whole darn thing...


This could be a painful endeavor... hopefully I will see all of you on the other side of it...
