It's like watching Office Space. Painfully true.

Supertrue. All that's missing is the part where the PM sends out the meeting notes and action items from LAST meeting about 10 minutes before THIS meeting.

Happy Veterans Day! Thank you to all who have served, and thank you to all the families of those who have served.

sigh I'm in trouble now, thanks. If there's a Corgi puppy app, I'm totally screwed.

Two truly evil hacks.
Bill Coderre originally shared:
 
Long ago, you might have seen this commercial: Snausages dog treat commercial

One of the most evil hacks I've ever seen was based on this. Long before OS X, on your Mac, about once an hour, a tiny dog icon peered out from behind a window, and said, "Snausages!" and then disappeared. You could set the hack to run rarely, and only when the user was typing or mousing busily for quite some time.

No, it's not evil because it interrupts you, it's evil because the first few times it happens, you're sure that you must have been seeing something. So then you start watching for it, waiting for it, and it senses that you aren't working, and doesn't show up.

Recently, I was told of a hack almost as evil: The Vetinari Clock: http://hackaday.com/2011/10/12/building-a-better-clock-to-drive-you-insane/
(The movie shows the effect exaggerated to an extreme.)

It keeps time well-enough on average, but each "tick" and second advancement might come a little too soon or a little too late, at random.

Has anyone with an AeroPress tried one of the stainless steel reusable filters?

What do you think of it?

Take a moment to vote for +Matt Robold for Tommy Bahama's Rumologist!
Matt Robold (RumDood) originally shared:
 
It's official: I'm in the Top 20 for Tommy Bahama's Rumologist Search. That means you need to go vote for me early and often! Also, encourage your friends, enemies, family members, and pets to do the same!

http://www.www.facebook.com/tommybahama?sk=app_195242107208514

If my request isn't enough, check out my blog post which will surely talk you into helping me achieve my dream that I didn't know I had until this month.
I have a confession to make. When I saw the announcement that Tommy Bahama was searching for a “Rumologist” for their chain of restaurants and bars, I did not immediately think, “I must tell my reader...

All my sites are participating in the blackout to oppose SOPA and PIPA.
Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.. Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Sena...

+Helena Tiare Olsen once you create the page, and want to get back to it, when you're on your main Google+ page, look next to your image icon, under your name, you should see a dropdown that says "1 Page" (goes up as you add pages). click this to get back to your page.

Took me forever to find that out.

Famously tetchy. I suspect the use of anti-anxiety meds.

Amusingly, when I check, they have both my age and gender demographic wrong.

They decided I was 25-34. I decided to correct them, because being a target market is awesome.
