Children, and now iPods spread disease!

Ask any doctor and she'll tell you that it's true. It's easier to catch cold from a little kid than it is to catch one from and open window, but I digress... On to the apple illness a disease that when caught by a human makes it much more snotty than any cold ever could.

Ok, let's not get things confused I'm going to buy a mac when I get my new lappy.

I know, I know...

I'm not switching over. They make sweet hardware, it's undenyable. So, I'm not about to cheat my self out of getting some sweet gear for the love of Bill (no, not you Vycious!), or the hatrid of anything else.

None the less, the shitty attitude that most things mac bear cheese me off sooooooooo hard!

Seriously, have you ever been inside the mac store?! I'm instantly transported back to high school with everyone in their horn rimmed glasses and flakey turtlenecked sweaters looking down at me from their high fashion high horses when I say I use a PC to use my iPod! Creatons! They effin' call their helpdesk jockeys Genius'. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm! Pathetic!

I figure if you're perfect you don't really need to tell anyone, people just know, but have you seen the mac ads lately? All they can do to sell their product is bash the competitors. As if a mac has never crashed, or lost a file.

As if the add campains weren't enough I just got this crap in my email:

Dear Apple iPod Owner:

We recently discovered that a small number - less than 1% - of the Video iPods available for purchase after September 12, 2006, left our contract manufacturer carrying the Windows RavMonE.exe virus. This known virus affects only Windows computers, and up to date anti-virus software that is included with most Windows computers should detect and remove it. So far we have seen less than 25 reports concerning this problem. The iPod nano, iPod shuffle and Mac OS X are not affected, and all Video iPods now shipping are virus free. As you might imagine, we are upset at Windows for not being more hardy against such viruses, and even more upset with ourselves for not catching it....


So, it's windows' fault that a windows virus got onto apple hardware from a factory!? When will the lameness end apple? You sell computers, not cool. They are machines, not messiahs, and every once in a while someone makes something that's pretty damn good, but not perfect. your iPod.

Personally mine broke so many times between when I bought it and before the first year of ownership elapsed that I felt obligated to first buy a shuffle (for when I wanted to jog with an iPod), and then an extended service plan. Especially after my buddy Mat's ipod went kaputz and they just gave him the snob oogle, told him he wasn't good enough to be in their beautiful store, and sent him home with a $300 paperweight.

I really only used the big pod for sitting at work or driving there was no excuse for it break. It uh, broke so often that they ended up giving me a new one out of the box to replace it, and that was really nice of them even if it could have given my computer a virus... sigh.

I guess the only thing the perfect people in the world have that we don't have is the ablity fail worse than they've ever failed before. Maybe that's why we love it so much when the Lindsay Lohans of the world wear green dresses on windy days . Yeah apple you didn't fool me with this email, your crotch is showing.


PS. Always make the kids wash their hands before they hug you...they've been eating worms and touching :: eeech :: other kids all day long!

If a tree has invaded your home

Your're really screwed.

So I'm at work cause it was cold at my house. Cause uh, the heat is not working, and neither is the electricity. Heat! Woo!

I guess I'm not the only one who needs to touch a computer every day. Sheesh if computers could reproduce we'd have a serious population problem. This six billion humans crap would be a cake walk, we'd have cyborg babies coming out of our ears. Just check out this exchange:

Last night the furious foozeball action was out of control. Segway: Why do American insist on calling table football foozeball? It's football, not soccer, and it's on a table, so it should be called... oh damn that argument. I've got better things to talk about.

So, during tablefootball, (e:vycious) and I verses Dan, a tree in Dans backyard bit it. It sounded like a glacier splitting into...or um a tree splitting in two, which is, uh what it was. Yeah. Some cars had been there just moments before, but were gone by the time the tree feel (lucky them too).

(e:vycious) went to work today too. Says when he called his boss excuse for not calling him and telling him not to come in was that his boss had little girls to protect from the aborious invaders that were loittering where the glass windows used to be. Pussy. I'da kicked those trees' asses' and...eeeeh, yeah. So, he had to wait an hour for a train to come and carry him home after being locked outside of work for a 1/2 hour.

Ooh here's some pics from last night near my car, and some from this morning too.

Those thick white streaks are mutant monster snowflakes!

Baumschieber: the new sensation in automotive excellence

The karma police let me slide....

A tree almost ate my car..

Ok a tree almost dragged my car to hell with it, but luckily I'm lazy...or maybe the karma police had a full day too and let me slide cause they didn't wanna fill out the paperwork

I drove to work this morning. That's stupid because I'm walking distance from work. Like seriously, I'm only 15 minutes on foot, but I knew we were moving today, my team that is, so I wanted to have the car close incase we wanted to port a bunch of breakables.

Really though I was just being lazy. Our old office in the Cell and Virus building was really close to the free parking; Ok, the neighborhood parking. MMmmmm, I should prolly leave the neighbor part off cause the other day there was police tape around the bodega where I sometimes get breakfast juice. Prolly a shooting or something, but I'm huge black dude who dresses kinda shabbily and don't compete with any local dealers, so I think they think I belong there and am harmless so they don't eff with me.

Any who, I get to work late since last night was a blast, sorry if you didn't make it out. La Luna was offa da chain and I dance with lotsa cuties but I got too drunk to be charming and ended up only dancing with them on the dance floor (nudge nudge wink...ahh you get it). I think I told one girl that 'I might puke' while I was dancing with her. That ended that kinda fast. My ill success is biting me in the butt today since all I wanna do is snuggle on the couch with someone while sipping hot chocolate.... I even almost called my ex. Spooky and sad at the same time. I gotta kick my game up a notch... winter is long and cold...

Right, so today at work. The whole gang, sans Zhang, went to lunch at Aldrich's and we had the bitchiest old waitress ever! We wanted to use our cards and split the bill and she got all pissy. She only refilled our drinks once, after we'd finished and were parched, and she brought me my appetizer with my meal, even though I canceled it to make our order simple for her. I got this cruddy sandwich on this crumbly bread and then Kiddy points out that it's snowing. Meanwhile, everyone is eating delicious burgers that I decided was "unhealthy" and all that ends up being edible on my plate is fried potato products... yuck.

I wasn't even going to tip the waitress but when she came back and took my plate she saw that there were 2 of the 3 potato pancakes still on it and I didn't want em, so she took em off the bill. That was sweet of her. I was going to pay for them.

The Cell and Virus Building and our new office on Washington is juuuust about as far apart a two buildings can be from each other on campus. So I had to walk through the snow to get to my car and drive back home which was lame, but when I got home I noticed that there was tree where my car had previously been.

We were releasing the new external site today and we... ok, I've been paranoid about it for a while. It's been done behind a firewall for days while. I get back to my desk and I have a zillion messages telling me to push it live, soI have to say at work till it gets publihsed. Anything can go wrong, and a few things do, but in about an hour and a half the new site was up and running and I felt like I just won the Special Olympics but there was no one to celebrate with. Ok Paul was very congratulatory and chicoschika just have me an (e:highfive), I rewarded my self by having breakfast for dinner and I'm prolly just gonna head to ((e:vycious))'s for some Hexic in a minute.

I guess my bad karma had been abated by that measly 3 dolla tip I left that woman, but not so much that I didn't have to walk through the slush, or end up playing video games instead of making... out, but I so what. Really the external has been a group effort and I don't deserve all the credit or reward even if I am the one to give me the reward. Even Paul had something to do with it (he did the flashy banner and the RPCI external is running SurebertCom which makes JavaScripting it very very easy. Thanks Paul)

My phones camera stinks in the dark and it's already dark (more sadness), but I'll try and get a pic of the fallen solider so's you guys will belive my tall tell on my way to hang out with the Hobbit.

If any of you (e:strip)pers wanna hang out tonight, maybe go bowling or something lemme know. I'd like to do something fun and exciting weather or not I deserve it...

NEXT ISSUE The hot girl vs. the Pink VD machine.... Sad, but true!
