Wow... Just, Wow.

I was going to gripe about work.  Instead I am going to link to random stupidity.

OK, I Might Be A Fan Now

The one who is currently nurturing new life known as SarahK now has me hooked on the band Pomplamoose.

Let me elaborate:

A Quiet Night Out

THE WIFE, Ben and the girls picked me up after work Monday night.  Chris and the "Boy in the Box" were staying home and ordering pizza so we were moderately unsupervised.  With THE WIFE's birthday just behind us she suggested we eat at Red Hot and Blue so we jumped on it.

We enjoyed some Ribs, pulled pork and some brisket while the girls had corn dogs and fries.  I screwed up an ordered them each a kids meal which has two corn dogs each but thankfully Sadie gobbled up two corn dogs on her own so I was somewhat off the hook.  Ben got the kid's ribs and devoured them talking about how great they were.

When we were done and waiting on the waiter, Ben said he didn't feel good and sat back in his chair.  He then said he thought he was going to throw up.  I quickly got him and guided him to the bathroom to avoid a disaster.

We made it to the bathroom door when BLOOF he lost it at the men's room doorstep.  I hustled him inside and got him to the toilet for him to finish.

When he was done I had him wash up and was sending him back to the table, carefully guiding him around the destruction in front of the door when WHAMMO he promptly lost it again at the restroom door.  Adding to the chaos at the exact same place he exploded before.

Back to the stall we went where he finished with more violence and gusto this time.  He washed up again and I held my breath as he made his way back to the table.  I stayed behind to remove the worst of the damage to the toilet and let the waiter know we had an explosion at (not in) the bathroom.

Oh and then we went and saw Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 and Ben is swearing off meat.

So how you doin'?

Busier Than Mario With That Dang Ape On The Loose!

Well hi... Hello.

I know, I don't get here very often.  No wonder no one ever comes here.

So today I decided to take a break for a few and eat my lunch and get away from the calls and angry people for an hour.  Basically I have a line of angry people who need me to fix something and all I can do is work on the problem owen by the person closest to me with a burning torch.

This makes me feel bad as it leaves everyone else to field the new calls, but oh well.  I meet new and exciting people who don't understand networking this way.  An example would be the guy who told us he was seeing one thing on the display of his phone during a failure when it wasn't showing that.

That is akin to calling tech support and telling them your TV has a blue tint to the picture while it is actually turned off.

Oh well, there is always alcohol.

Good news is I am inspired for another drawing, so hopefully there will be a new one poping up here soon.

Odd Networking

Strange things today.

I get a voicemail from someone wanting me to go to Houston to work on a PBX. I would probably jump on it to get some spare cash, but it's an ethics violation and could result in my termination from PHONECO.

Sucks, but oh well. What I thought was odd was I was tracked down through Linked In, but I don't have my work number on LInked In.

The next thing was I got a spam message supposedly from Linked In at my PHONECO email address.

What The Fishsticks people?
