Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, and Gorbachev are on a train heading towards communism.
Suddenly the conductor says, "Oh no! There are no rails left. We can not move on."
Lenin says, "no problem, Saturday is Lenin day and we will all work for free and cut down trees and build the rails."
Then Stalin says, "no, we must find out whose fault this is and kill them."
Khrushchev disagrees and says, "no, we can plant corn in the fields, sell the corn to the American and we can buy the railroad."
Brezhnev says, "no, we must all sit in the train and sway back and forward so we have the appearance of forward motion towards communism."
Finally Gorbachev stands up and says, "Comrandes, you don't understand the modern times. There is a new spirit of glasnost and perestroika. We need more transparency. We need more openness." At this point, he opened the windows and started shouting, "there are no rails! There are no rails!"

Productivity Theft.

The Fightin Titan

Ted is one of my good friends. Sometimes I can be of a .. pain but he deserves an apology for some of my comments on his blog. My feelings about the New Orleans clean up are not that strong but I did take it too far. Immaturity aside I apologize for pushing your buttons Ted.


In case you don't know on the right The Fightin Titan has been linked since day one. Conversative or not you'll still learn something. Click here and you'll go right (lol) to the action.

Plumbers Crack Makes There Unions Act Dumb.

Luddite Plumbers Unions Versus Flushless Urinals


I agree with the Rosenberg article but what the unions don't see is that good design will cost a bit in the long run. The sensors will need replacement and so will the toilets as well. Unions already charge an arm and a leg to come fix toilets and pipes aready. So they'll just charge a bit more to fix these toilets when they break as well. I think unions should be more like think sessions that designers have together instead of hot beds of madness controlled by union leaders. I think the saddest part of this is the unions poorly designed website. We have DHTML and java or even flash to make it look a little better. Sad.

Oh Cubicle ! 

My goal in life is to never work a job that makes me stay in a cubicle. I think it's honestly degrading. Keep you trapped in a little box all day and let you go only to come back 16 hours later to repeat lol. Office Space is the movie for this post. Smile everyone it's Thursday.

Here's a interesting link about Cubicles from CNN.

The way. 

My first computer was a Apple. My 2nd-145th computer was a PC. My last computer will be a Apple. I've read this commencement speech by Steve Jobs at the Stanford graduation last year and thought it would be good reading for anyone interested. His words mean a little more to me now than before. 


Read the speech here.
So. First saturday off from work in a while and I'm taking it all in stride. Well I might have a few satudays off for while without a job to go. 

Surplus. That's why I was let go apparently. It's nice that your reduced to a number with a SS# and numbers to clock in and check your bank statements. Further reduction implies "Feeling more like a formula" and "less human" when they gave me notice on Thursday. I had two choices from my former District Manager at that point. 

1. Work out my 2 weeks notice. 
2. Not work and get paid for 2 weeks. 

My last day was yesterday from Merrill Corporation based in the Newmeyer and Dillion law firm. Bittersweet it was. I didn't care for my job as much as I loved the people. I wish companies would realise this. It's all about the people. Treat them well and they shall do the same for you. I figure I'll go in and tie up some loose ends next week. Another chapter in my life is over. I'll miss the people but I promise I will not be a stranger.

Coming soon.

Content and plenty of useless stuff to waste your productive time away at work/home. :)
