Meet my new box friend, Roland.

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Friday, July 1, 2005 at 1:13 pm by flerly.

Looks like JT’s amp was delivered today, via USPS. A heavy, bulging, taped-to-death cardboard box hand-labeled in black marker: “Roland”. Clearly a quality job.

Sam: Death by stereo! Anyone? Anyone? Fine. Since that line didn’t ring bells, how about the easy quote from the same movie: Grandpa: Something I never could stomach about living in Santa Carla… all the damn vampires. So much for me trying a RQotD. I’ll leave these up to I guess.

We moved our Friday call up to 10 AM today because Lloyd decided that “the Atlanta folks” would be fully occupied with their “rebel flags and Pabst Blue Ribbon” by noon in honor of the holiday. I think he just likes scaring the folks from Arizona. “The Atlanta folks” didn’t exactly second his notion, but some of the Texas folks did. Bizarre.

Meanwhile, I like going last on the updates. Allows me to just say “I also worked on blah blah or blah” that people have already discussed to death, then just add my bomb for the week… Sabotage! (or gross incompetence, but Sabotage! seems more fun).

Two “minor” tickets came to me this week that revealed themselves as symptoms of larger issues… issues such as someone swapping out some of our “standard” (and very much shared) graphics with inappropriate items as well as someone swapping out one of our (also shared) scripts, causing all our agent-level community links pages to die. Both of these actions requires someone with a certain level of access to our systems, which is where the mystery begins. Actively supposed to be editing these systems are: Me and Jason Churchill. Thus…. we’re looking at some sort of outside sabotage of the sites OR, and much more likely, someone from the FNIS customer service who isn’t SUPPOSED to be dealing with issues on these sites, who managed to get access and decided to try to handle a few items independently and thusly… fux0red things up. This belief is based on me trying to track back the items that had been swapped in, assuming that whomever did it didn’t realize he was swapping some master item and only meant to change the item on a particular site.

Anywho… babble. Drama. Intrigue. Mass stupidity. All I know is it’s after noon and I’m not drinking yet.

    That’s totally “Lost Boys”. I recognized it from the subject line yesterday, but didn’t realize that you were asking for someone to identify it.

    Lost Boys is one of my favorite movies of all time.

    Rock! It’s a favorite of mine, too!

    has been doing movie quotes for people to guess and that was my first attempt, so I guess I didn’t make it clear I was throwing that out there for people to name rather than just randomly throwing in quotes supposedly relating to the post.

    I only thought of it because I watched it the Sci-Fi channel the other night. I was thinking how sad it was nobody else caught it and had it fresh enough in their mind to recognize the quote!
