Toronto is all d’d up

Thursday, July 31st, 2003

That’s an image from an enormous concert they had in Toronto to draw tourists back after SARS reduced the population to like six wheezing old bacon-eating Canadian motherfuckers. Apparently half a million people attended. Think about that.

The ironic thing is that if even one or two of those people still have traces of SARS, the entire nation of Canada will need to be quarantined in the next couple hours. Hahaha.

Verizon

Tuesday, July 29th, 2003

Verizon Wireless smells of death. Outdated phone selection, terrible lock-in contracts, bad customer service, outdated pricing, outdated Website (broken in Mozilla), even their store color scheme looks tired and 80s. Cell number portability will get me out of this hole.

My laptop has shipped

Tuesday, July 29th, 2003

I am giddy. I ordered a Compaq X1000 and after days of waiting anxiously it just left Shanghai China. I’ll explain why I returned the Toshiba tablet and give my reviews once it arrives in a few days.

Update: Quick review below:

Pros:

Excellent performance due to the 5400 RPM disk and 1.5Ghz Pentium M/Centrino; much faster than our one-year-old, $2500 Sony Viao. I haven’t missed having a desktop, even while playing games such as Enemy Territory.
Decent battery life. I expected a bit more, but it’s usuable for a pretty fair period (3 - 4 hours, I would roughly estimate) off AC power.
Good screen, better than some of the cheap LCDs in the office, even if I’m going …

What a day

Monday, July 28th, 2003

Wow, today was fun. Let’s review.

Woke up late.

One of our people took the file server with him to the new office when he took his own computer. That wouldn’t be a problem if people in the old office didn’t need the files on it, and if they weren’t opposed to using PC Anywhere. Net result: Lost money, fighting, and headaches.

Over the weekend I threw a lollipop out the window and my window never went back up. This is a known problem on my car; the window switch fails in a variety of ways periodically. I found instructions on the internet detailing how to disassemble the center console and get access to the problematic switch, which I did …

Drama for ya mama

Saturday, July 26th, 2003

I heard that there’s an AOL chat room for stay at home moms frequented by bisexual pregnant New Yorkers who get together for “play dates” in which the children socialize and the parents have lesbian sex.

Isn’t that disturbing?
