Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor.

A dog’s parents never visit.

Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point across.

I was listening to the scriptures this morning while traveling to the gym to go swimming. I was listening to Alma 10-13 in the Book of Mormon. And I was struck by a Alma 12:26 where Alma and Amulek are contending with a man named Zeezrom. He is asking them questions to try and twist their words to keep the people from paying attention to them.

26 And now behold, if it were possible that our first parents could have gone forth and partaken of the tree of life they would have been forever miserable, having

Case and Point…

Today I was with a computer hardware vendor. You know the dog and pony show where they show you what new computer servers are coming out over the next year so you can plan to buy their product. Because I am under a verbal non-disclosure agreement, I will not tell you what vendor it was.

I was introduced to a website by them http://www.climatesaverscomputering.org/ it is basically an organization that is trying to reduce the amount of power used by computers by 50% by the end of 2010. Sounds good, I agree, we could save a lot of energy and …

Office Prank – My Cubical

I went to my Grandmothers funeral on Thursday (so I took the day off), when I returned, I found my cube looking like this. It is pretty good. The top picture is what the outside looks like, the second is what they did inside the cube, and the bottom is me going through the little door to get into my cube.
All in good fun……

2- The harder you make the cop run, the harder your are …

Hard drive crash of the centry

One of the tasks I have at work, is to destroy the bad hard drives and wipe the good ones before they leave the company. This one failed when I tried to wipe it. I wonder why. The black stuff all around the drive is dust created from the scratching of the metal off the drive.

I have never seen a drive crash this hard. There are a few that I have seen with scratches, etc on the platters, but nothing like this.…

Big 40….

My birthday is coming up in a few weeks, and I am so excited. I will be the big 38. That makes me only 2 years from the big 40. And you may be asking yourself, why is he so excited to make it to the big 40.

Some background. I am a 38 year old (well almost) heterosexual, non-handicapped white male of European decent. I have never been considered a protected class in my life. I have never had the advantage of loans, grants, special programs from the government. I can be fired at any time because I am …

”From the perspective of many people, including me, this is another thrift industry growing up around us,” said Peter Wallison a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. ”If they fail, the government will have to step up and bail them out the way it stepped up and bailed out the thrift industry.”

I guess that Peter Wallison can do a big I TOLD YOU SO.

What does Peter Wallison have to say now about the bailout? He has written a
