Some silly workplace stories

I hate Complex magazine
You know, I think the most offensive thing possible is when a magazine has such a hard on about keeping their readership numbers up in a valuable demographic that, while they charge for their magazine, it's actually quite hard to get them to stop sending the stupid piece of crap...
My opinion on the stuck-in-development-hell Neuromancer movie
A Neuromancer movie has been in development hell since the eighties. My opinion on how you'd do it has stayed fixed for quite a few years now, so I figured I'd write it out so that every time people make noises about it, I can dig up this post and be saved making the argument over and over again...
The story of how I came to buy a UPS without budgeting for it
I guess I should have known there would be cosmic consequences from putting off buying a UPS until next month..

John McCain and the Internet: A dumb idea
Back in the primaries, McCain enlisted the services of spammers. I got some badly targeted emails that were clearly oriented towards military veterans... and the email address for the person I think he thought he had wasn't a veteran, nor am I. I filled out the form on his website and said that I was planning on voting for anybody but him. Clearly nobody read those forms, because I got a few emails to the address I gave there, too. Calling somebody part of the "McCain Community" is about as offensive as overusing the phrase "My friends". I am neither.

Why politicians should not spam (or even come close)
So I've gotten into some flamewars with folks about spammer politicians with people who don't seem to grasp points until they've gotten hit on the head. So I figure I'll write a nice post on the subject and make it sound reasonable and not have to bother finding new and clever ways to call them an idiot...

A very topical book for right now: The Stainless Steel Rat for President
Right now, you should go to your library or go to amazon.com and get this book. It's very topical and you''ll probably spend a bunch of time in the next two months laughing over how you are reminded of the scenes instead of crying because you hate both candidates...

McCain spams. Poorly
Is it too much to ask that a potential president not be of the same moral character as people who sell herbal penis enlargement pills over the Internet?
