Everything that would not belong anywhere else.

They say you learn something new every day, so what did you learn?

I discovered a handful of recipes for Polish sausage and an innovative way of scaring away cats.
A million great ideas...

Lowe's Customer Service Sucks . . .

After a third e-mail still no reply.

Therefore, a CSM Style Phone Conversation is in order . . . pity the bastard that answers the phone . . . {grumpy}

AT&T Customer Service isn't.

Office Space is a damn fine movie.
And I really need a new job, before I end up being like these guys.

Both not really news, but I guess you gotta remind yourself from time to time.
Yes, the new EU copyright directive is that stupid.

Just outside of town, Wisconsin troopers and sheriff's deputies were busy citing people for doing 70 in a 65 today on the interstate. There must have been a dozen police cars waiting in line to go after people. After issuing a ticket, they'd come back, join the queue and go after more drivers. This went on from 0800 until 1700.

I learned just how badly I needed a good night's sleep. Slept for 11.5 hours last night and boy do I feel better today. Too bad I can't do that every night.

My experience with WI state cops is that they're pretty much worse than the greediest of local cops anywhere else.

One of our developers learned that, while clearing out old files from his PC, NTDETECT is not a good file to remove. :))

That depends on who's back there with you :))

Today I learned that my wife has overpayed the tax office by £600 and they're paying it back.
A million great ideas...

That's why I prefer SUVs.

Learned this recently: If taken within an hour of waking up, extra strength Five Hour Energy works really well initially. But as it wears off, I begin to have symptoms very similar to an anxiety attack. {tired}
