Angry sky for an angry day

Reminds me of the storms back home, except there's no mountain behind these clouds, just more darker clouds.

Everything today either pisses me off or brings me down

Work, tech, and personal, all news today has been bad. Need to call some family members tonight to hear their cheerier news (and hope they don’t have worse news to share).

Really, Google? Held my day's blog tweets for a single burst? #FAIL

Must remember to reference "My friend Nicole Scott" @Nicole_Scooter

I like it when people cover my stories and say "My friend Nicole Scott" If I had heard of you or your site it might seem less creepy! lol

Great. I took the hit on the Ctrl-Alt-Del button for nothing.

From Ars Technica: "The enterprise targeting is also apparent; there's a dedicated ctrl-alt-del button, to accommodate the Windows default of requiring the magic keystroke to log on in domain environments."

 

Great. This is exactly why I avoided mentioning corporate login in my defense of the Ctrl-Alt-Del button on the HP Slate, for which I am now getting bashed. I log in to a corporate server every day. I know why Ctrl-Alt-Del is needed. What I didn't want is for the button, which should be standard on every Tablet PC, to be equated with corporate and enterprise use. Oh well.

Patty actually sleeps like this

Not a mid-motion pose. He is actually sleeping like this with forepaws at side and head on pillow.

Dis freaky spider wanna kill me

Very intimidating. Or it would be if it wasn't so tiny.

Fear or sanity: Those are your only two choices! http://tinyurl.com/2fxtpad

Jon Stewart is holding a "Rally To Restore Sanity" to be countered by Stephen Colbert's "March To Keep Fear Alive”! And they’re being held in DC! Yeah! I am so there.

Fujitsu Lifebook T580: "IT'S MORE THAN A SLATE, IT'S A TABLET PC" http://tinyurl.com/35e7qat

Dug up the preliminary data sheet for this upcoming, “slate-beating,” entry-level Tablet PC from Fujitsu. So glad to see them standing up for the Tablet PC.

New ThinkGeek catalog is standard size

So glad they upsized from the half-page sized catalogs. Makes me nostalgic of my catalog writing days (until I remember how that turned out).
