Was in the middle of fixing #3 for Scott...when the manager for these people comes buy to see how I'm doing...he's like...These are supposed to goto John, Susan,Danny and Dave...I'm thinking well at least I got one right.

I was like how was I supposed to know this...the only request I had came from Victor...and his Test Group had some serious communication issues. He told me to stop and he would get back to me...3 weeks later he finally tells me that indeed they need to goto the last set of 4 and Danny would contact me with the detail. Turns out I need 13 different OS images for each PC...and they want them stat cause the Manager sat on it for 3 weeks.

Finaly got all 13 Images (7 Win7; 4 Vista; 2 XP) working on one PC...now I just need to roll it out to the other 3 PCs...but they wanted them about a week ago...oh well.
13 images on one box?? WTB?!? (What The Beverly) That's... just.... SICK. I don't even want to know why. Do you have Ghost or something to clone the drives?

Sorry to hear your pain. That's why I like Southwest.

To the Agent who decided to superglue the bottom plates of his pistol magazines to "keep them from falling off", and then bringing it to me (your friendly neighborhood armorer) to fix when it hangs in the gun...then stand there and complain about me yanking it off with vice grips...

Here, let me help you out here...

OK.... I came here to rant, but now that I've read the previous ones, I feel sheepish in bringing it up... BUT... here goes:

I HATE shirt tags. So much so that any time I buy a new shirt I instantly grab the scissors or razor blade and remove those suckers. One would think that the shirts with the tags at the bottom of the shirt would be exempt from the removal process... but I found out today that is not the case. Stupid tags. Stupid itchy, annoying tags.

Yes Ghost...

My work place does both Industrial PLC Hardware development/testing...but also the ever growing brach of this outfit is Software development.

They have a new release of a Programming package which MUST be compatable and support the following Operating systems.

XP Home and Professional (32bit)
Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Ultimate (32 bit)
Win 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Prof, Ultimate (32bit)
Win7 Home Premium, Prof, Ultimate (64bit)

I had no images for the particular PC type they wanted to test on...so I had to build them from scratch.

All I can say is at least I don't have to do the testing.

That's a lot of work. Nice job! <== Is a thumb this time

And I'm afraid to know what "not a banana" is...

I am truly frightened for the future of medicine! The inpatients keep getting more and more complicated and the residents seem to be getting stupider and stupider...

Phew. I feel better already! Maybe now I can go talk to one of the FMGs (foreign medical grads) without punching him in the face (which I assume would get me in trouble, right?)

I'm having an extremely cranky day. So much so that I'm actually taking a couple of hours of leave and hanging out in a coffee shop before picking up Squeaker. I had phone calls to return, but in the mood I'm in, I might have said something terribly inappropriate if I had. I just need this week to be over and to start fresh on Monday.

Hey Fed...DS 16 is interested in Law enforment...particularly the FBI...any career path suggestions.

He's very book smart...gotta work on the common sence stuff though.

In NCIS (the show) perspective...I figure him as a McGee with the sunny disposition of Director Vance...Palmer (Ducky's assistant) in the common sence department.

WTFt (What The French toast)?

I didn't even know there was a Dis Dad's thead.

I'll even rant about a Disney related rant.

The Disney Store in our local mall is closing because the Mall wants to change something or other. So now we don't even have a place to go take the kid when we're in the dang mall to distract her.

BelAir Mall.
