    If this computer had a face, I would be punching it, repeatedly, until my knuckles were broken and bleeding, just so it could go to the hospital and be someone else's problem. This would have been a great learning experience, up until extending over the weekend and my fix not working because of a stupid application (the idea was sound, the program just did not do what it was supposed to do, despite SAYING it had completed successfully).

    Not to be pessimistic, but I expect they'll find more bodies -- with how quickly the fire came down over the ridge, there was no way everyone got out of there.
    Are you in one of the evac areas? If you need a place to stay (pet friendly and primal food!) PM me and I'll give you my info.
    I really appreciate the offer, but I'm well away from the fire. My roommate and I skipped out for a bit partially because if they called for an evacuation that far east, it would be a mess, and partially because we like to be able to breathe

    People keep telling me about the Incline. It falls under "I really should and really, really don't want to." It's, what, a mile of stairs?

    The couple they found was apparently pulling into their garage and closing the door when everyone else was leaving. Hopefully no one else was that stupid?

    There are some brands that don't add the crap - keep reading labels. I buy the Sunflower Market yellow fin tuna for abt. $1.30 a can and it has no soy or funky oil in it. I think all the name brands add it though.

    My GOTD (also Gripe of the Month carried over from last month): Childish co-workers. (Well, one specifically.)

    For heaven's sake, I DON'T care what you're doing in your cube. I make a point of NOT looking into it. You don't need to "wallpaper" the window between our cubes to keep me from looking! Really!

    Imagine doing this with an application you'd never seen before working at your employer, while being paid to do graphic arts (and believe me, there's a STEEP pay grade difference between IT and graphic arts, unless you're an art director in a big city). That summarizes my existence. We run a piece of accounting software that is completely wrong for our usage, within an Active Directory ecosystem. I want to Thelma and Louise myself once a week, but there are no canyons here...

    I buy the Cloverleaf tuna here, which is probably the most common name brand in a lot of grocery stores in my part of Canada, and at least the water-packed skipjack variety I get only has tuna, water, and salt as ingredients. Don't buy oil-packed tuna--it will almost certainly have soybean oil in it.

    most of the water packed tuna i've seen in the stores has "broth" in it. who knows what's actually in that.
