Do you want to play a game?

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Friday, November 7, 2003 at 12:41 pm by flerly.

Come on, it’s fun. It’s called “Making coasters on the most fucked up morning of my life.” It’s the game of choice for mornings from Hell.

Adaptec sucks, locking up twice at nearly the end of the burn process, and my own unfamiliarity with Nero caused me to do a big “psych” with what was apparently a simulation burn and not the real thing… since my laptop reads the cd as blank, though Nero doesn’t. It doesn’t see anything on the cd, but it’s no longer suitable to write to when I tried it again. I have just completed, with evil simulations turned off, burning my last blank cd. If this fucks up too, I’m hoping JamesT has more.

Meanwhile, fast forward to “morning from hell” …. overslept, as to be expected when one stays out late and is exhausted, get up to no email requests and think.. JOY! I can get this laptop formatted and ready without interruption. So I close down programs to begin burning cds (just in case, ha!) and when I check mail later…. GOODGODWHEREHAVEYOUBEENWENEEDGUIDANCE!

Emergency! We found a link on a major customers site that gives an error message when you click on it (HTTP Error 403 – Forbidden ). The link points to a domain not in our database and resolves to an IP that doesn’t appear to be one of our domains? I need to know from you if we built that site or if it is really something hosted elsewhere.

Um… well, you may be surprised to hear, and I’m so sorry for the delay in response that caused you to cc several other people letting them know I wasn’t helping or answering my phone on this, but it’s not one of our fucking sites. it’s hosted elsewhere and not in our database as one of our domains. you want to fix it? remove the damn link or call and offer your services to whomever owns that fucking domain–said not in so many words.

Thanks for the clarification!

That’s me. I’m all about solving these big mysteries. Last week I solved the case of “Who’s lunch is in this brown paper bag?” Cleverly, I was the one who figured out that the word written on the bag was in English and translated to the name of a co-worker. Then too, I was hailed as a genius.

But really, the final mystery to be solved is “What cosmic deity is fucking with me today?” as I, in my wanton desperation for something good today, head for my freezer to snag a low-carb fudgicle, only to have the top 3/4 cling to the wrapper and break off from the bottom and the stick. In my wisdom, I attempt to reaffix the top to bottom, trusting in the sticky-properties of frozen chocolate confections not to fail me, and this works out great for a while… until the chocolate top is rejected and tumbles end over end down my dress, leaving it’s gooey chocolate trail.

Welp, another coaster. Time to find more blank cds…and change clothes.

    You say “fucking” a lot. I dig that. I said it more when I was working, as well.

    Adaptec *does* suck the big one…

    i use nero, a lot! i really recommend it!

    although, running other programs can be bad…and burning at the slowest speed might be a good option as well…

    although, i hate leaving the system idle while i burn something…
