T-minus 5 days

October 28, 2004 By: bio Category: General

The election is in 5 days.

I will be incredibly happy when it’s over, no matter who wins. I’ll no longer have to view stupid political ads produced by the candidates or their 527 flunkies, listen to people argue over who’s right and who’s wrong, or endure another pre-election email that attempts to sway my vote.

And speaking of email:

Stop sending me stupid election humor or letters stating why you hate the other candidate (and all the horrible things he/she’s done in the past). I’m really damn sick of it all. I understand that I may voting against your candidate, but that’s because your candidate is a dusche bag. You will not convince me otherwise, but you will annoy the hell out of me.

Stop it.

Seriously… stop it now.

Photoshop This #13

We’re having fun on the forum in the “Photoshop This” thread.

This week’s image:

My submission:
dead moo!

Yes… and a milkshake too!

Eat that, spammer bastards!

The old blog has been drilled over the past few days with spams for some online casino, viagra, and other such nonsense. I’ve deleted aprox 800 comments since saturday.

Since I had to work graveyard last night, I started looking at ways to fuxor the spammers in their quest to drill my site without having to resort to using WPBlacklist. I found one.

When you attempt to post a comment, an image is generated that displays a random number. You then must type the number from the image into a box. No matching number… no post. And, since it’s an image, the spammers script cant just grab it and insert it into the field… someone’s gonna have to actually look at it (and it changes every time you post a comment).

I’ll do a writeup on it and post it over at wordpress for the other kids.

Dead horse time!

I’m pretty sure I’ve given my opinion of working the graveyard shift once or twice in the past.

Lets recap for those who haven’t been following along: I HATE THE DAMN GRAVEYARD SHIFT!

There… now I feel better.

Unfortunately, we’re short-staffed as heck at the moment. One person had to fly to California, another to Minnesota, and a third is out with an injury (a nasty one too!). That’s half of our team. So… I’m working graveyard tonight and tomorrow night (which is… well… tonight… kinda). Yay!

On a side note, working graveyard has taught me several valuable skills. One is how to make your own espresso shot. Here’s the recipe:

  • 2oz hot water
  • 6 rounded teaspoons of instant coffee

Carefully stir coffee into water, one teaspoon at a time and enjoy!

It also makes an excellent caffeinated syrup.

Today’s game plan:
Go home, sleep, wake up, repeat.

Yay, me!

Everybody run… the homecoming queen’s got a gun!
