I had a job interview the other day. I'm not really looking, but I had a request from LinkedIn, I had interviewed with them in the past, so I figured, why not. The requestor is a pretty well known network security shop, after all. Indeed. I found out though since the same damn thing happened … Continue reading Should’ve Known Better
I loathe having to call doctors or companies for nearly any reason. If I can't find it or do it on the web, I'm already frustrated. Doesn't take much for the angry to come out. I'm in the middle of trying to get an appointment for a follow up. And the only reason I'm doing … Continue reading What Customer Service?
WordPress appears to have updated it's interface. No email. No "Hey, we've improved things" banner when you sign in. Just up and changed. I know. Inside baseball. Who cares? Apparently, it's still a work in progress. Another irritation. What's it doing? Well, they've changed what I see as I type. It now appears as Times … Continue reading Why, Oh Lord, Why?
I'm not getting the vaccine fetish. I'm data driven. And we have tons of data on what works and what doesn't to prevent and cure COVID. Washing your hands, staying away from sick people works. Masks work to some extent, as does the vaccine. But the vaccine isn't anywhere near as effective as advertised. Not.Even.Close. … Continue reading Vax Psychosis
I hate Interstate batteries. They are the only ones that have consistently failed me over these many years. The last one I had was in a 94 Camry twenty years ago. I pulled into the garage at work, turned the car off. Then for whatever reason turned it back on - I think I forgot … Continue reading Hating on Interstate Batteries
I was doing something in the kitchen, and the screen for my apple watch clattered across the floor. Busted. Again. This will be the third screen this watch has had. I think I'm done. A done tom turkey. I plugged it back in, and it didn't work. Although, it seems to be working now. I … Continue reading Useless
It's been a hell of a week for the Biden administration. Or let me back up, the Grima Wormtongue that's actually running things. As usual others have said it better than me. Nearly anyone on my blog roll to the right has better analysis of things. I tend to like Adaptive Curmudgeon, Bayou Renaissance Man, … Continue reading Words Fail…
This week I was blessed with Jury Duty. Six Bucks! Such a deal! I lived for nearly 40 years in Fairfax County Virginia and had jury duty exactly once. Down here, I think I get called up every eighteen months or so. I've been at least ten times since I've lived here. I've been on … Continue reading Jury Duty
When does someone have Agency? When is someone responsible for their actions? When is someone held accountible? This week a number of Texas democrats fled to DC to evade their responsibilities and lobby for a patently unconstitutional bill. What I'm wondering is; Who's paying for this? Who's paying for the chartered jets? You see, the … Continue reading When Does Adulting Start?
And this time, it was more painful and expensive than usual. Every year you have to renew the tags on your car, which involves an inspection. Herself's car is due in May, and look at the date - it's the eleventh hour again. For those uninitiated, you don't go to the DMV in Texas for … Continue reading That Time of Year Again…
