Introduction
Hi there. Welcome to my profile. There was free coffee and complimentary cookies, but I ate them all.

If you're wondering where to put me, I'd probably fit in the following circles:

Web Design
Technology
Geek
Cape Breton
Halifax
Maritime Provinces
Gaming
Comics
Science Fiction
Star Wars: The Old Republic
Atheist and Theist discussions.
Politics



Born in Halifax, moved to Cape Breton in 2009 when my wife graduated from university and got a job here (Neither of us is from the region). I used the following 2 years to get a diploma in web development from NSCC and am now I build websites and junk. 

I like comic books and making laser noises while shooting things with my finger. I am owned by 2 cats. My wife and I like to hike and fly kites in our backyard, which always gets us weird looks. I am extremely outgoing, except for when I'm not, and I'm much less annoying than I appear at first glance.

9 out of 10 people who are me feel that I am awesome.

Nothing I say should be taken seriously, except for the stuff that I actually mean.

I have a kick-ass job with a kick-ass company. My opinions are my own and do not in any way reflect the views of my employers. It would be fundamentally absurd to expect that a company have opinions as stupid as mine on as many ridiculous things as I do. Honestly, anyone who thinks otherwise lacks any and all objectivity and needs to smarten up.

Everyone is awesome.

People from south and central america sneak into the US via the southern border.

How do you think it would play out if they started showing up like the Syrian refugees who come to Turkey, or Greece? If they just walked up brazenly, knowing full-well that whatever they face ahead can't be as bad as what they've left behind, with whatever they still own in their arms and on their back?

It's easy to vilify "illegals" in the US because of the nature of how they enter the country. What if they changed their branding, and instead came in like tired, weary, hungry masses yearning to be free?

The solution is simple: No women in manly-men professions. </sarcasm>

This whole story is just terrible. I'm not not sure how this plays out in a way that isn't a continuation of this awful nonsense. I'd almost advocate that the people who aren't neolithic troglodytes simply abandon the town, except that there are apparently enough shitheads of both sexes who will remain to continue having children and raise more people who will deserve better than they can seemingly find here.

Shame on the whole lot of em.

Brenda should just recruit 20 more firefighters on her own. Surely, the good women of the town will volunteer to put their lives on the line to protect their husbands from dangerous fires.

This site has been reported the same attack for like 15 minutes now, and that's since I started monitoring it. I've never seen such persistently reported attacks before.

I used to be pro anonymous comments, but have long since abandoned that. 

Anonymity serves a purpose. That purpose has nothing to do with commenting on news articles or the vast majority of online interaction. I'd even be OK with Google factoring poorly moderate comment systems into their algorithms that display search results.

The ghost of the person who haunts this pool grows increasingly frustrated due to the fact that his attempts to communicate his desire for vengeance to the living is mistaken for an amusement park ride and charged admission.

"Most of us think there are a lot of things in life that are interesting and worth working on. But Bernie says, ‘No, no, no. The struggle for equality is what my life is about.’ He’s not a liberal. He’s not a good-doer. He’s consumed by what he thinks is the struggle for equality.”

Sanders has the highest constituent approval rating and lowest disapproval rating among U.S. senators. He spends an inordinate amount of his budget on casework, addressing the individual problems of his voters."

-----

He just needs to get elected. Nuts to business as usual south of the border, we're all suffering for it. He needs to get elected and Elizabeth Warren needs to be his VP. Anything else is less than the planet deserves.
On the road with a man so angry he scares Democrats, too.

We call them more than I'd like, but that's because of our furnace being problematic. They never leave us waiting and show us how to troubleshoot issues, so we rarely have to call them for the same problem twice. Highly recommended for emergency issues and annual service calls.

Had a run in with a faulty ATM resulting in me being shortchanged several hundred dollars. Called the 1-800 number and received friendly, professional service indicating the issue would be resolved soon and that I should go in to the branch. Went into the branch, spoke to a teller and was told an investigation was under way and the money would be deposited in my account if they audited the ATM and discovered things were wrong. A week went by and nothing changed, so I went in and spoke to the branch manager. She was fantastic and immediately addressed the issue for me, fully admitting that it was super unlikely I was trying to rip them off given that I'd been a client for decades and had half a dozen services through them, including mortgage and car loan. It was a refreshing amount of respect and common sense. I wish the ordeal hadn't lasted as long as it did, and I'm fortunate that I was financially stable enough to be able to survive without 1/3 of my paycheck, but overall the experience left me with a continued positive view of RBC.

The best thing about a restaurant like this is the consistency of eating in a franchise restaurant. Pizza Delight, as a brand, has updated a lot of their menus over the past year and has improved. A year ago I would have rated them 2 stars. It's cheaper than Boston Pizza, with less selection, but can typically be counted on to be a fairly solid experience. The staff are always friendly.

Wendy is awesome. My wife and I went to her for a photo shoot for our newborn twin girls and couldn't be more pleased with the experience. I can't even begin to properly describe her work ethic throughout the whole shoot. She was as focused on providing us with great quality pictures as she was with ensuring the twins were comfortable. As a new parent, I actually learned a few tricks on how to better soothe my daughters by watching her at work, and I have no doubt that the all of the photos we'll get out of the series will be amazing.

Golf course was the most visually stunning I've ever played, although it's easy to lose balls when your skill level is as low as mine. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful above and beyond I would have expected.
