Month: October 2003


Last time I went into Target I was accosted not once but twice regarding signing up for one of their credit cards. As if buying a pack of soda and a box of crackers was something I just couldn’t pay cash for. That’s one of the things I hated about working there back about 2 years ago. Get people signed up for Target Visa cards. Hell I worked in the back room and ideally I’d have minimal customer contact, but I was still told to try to sign people up for that shit. (Hint: I never did.) In a country where debt consolidation is it’s own industry one would think the last thing we need is every establishment on the face of the planet offering their own credit line … sheesh. But more importantly than all that, I don’t know what’s worse – the fact that this cashier tried to get this guy to save 10 percent on his $2 box of donuts by applying for a Target Visa, or the fact that the dude almost looked like he was gonna go for it. There’s a point somewhere in your job where your responsibility as an employee cuts off and your common sense should be taking over. If you can’t find it then get the hell off my planet and stop wasting my oxygen. Please.

In other news …

Hey, let’s hear it for me being an idiot. I went through all the work of creating graphics for the date stamps that show up at the top of these posts and I ended up missing like 5 or 6 of them, didn’t even realize it until just now. Making a shitload of graphics and then forgetting how you made them isn’t so great.

Huge Effing Update

I just added 200mb worth of videos. Good thing my upstream bandwidth was capped at 30kb/sec, otherwise it might have taken less than two hours. And we can’t have that, now can we?!

I’m Fixing a Hole

I broke the Funny section weeks ago. Not deliberately, mind you, I was attempting to make a quick update using command-line FTP and telnet. I telneted into the server, then I FTPed into it – all in the same session – and tried to get the HTML file from a location and put it back in the same location. End result: a blank file. That’s what I get for trying to edit this shit while I’m at work.

Anyhow, more updates should be on the way. I hope.

I finally saw Total Recall tonight. That was one of those movies that every kid in school was raving about and talking about how cool it was way the hell back in 1990-1991 and my parents would never let me see it. (Others that come to mind are Judge Dredd, Batman Returns, and Terminator 2.) I know why now, especially after hearing the director say he had to edit the movie quite a bit to get it an R rating in one of the special features on the DVD. Good movie, though. Violence = t3h win.

Wiggle your big toe.

I just got back from seeing Kill Bill – absolutely one of the best things I’ve seen so far this year. You must see this movie now. I command you.

Are you still here? GTFO! Go watch that goddamn movie!
