Humanoid Resources

It is a continued struggle with my logical mind to deal with Human Resources. It doesn’t matter what company it is, Human Resources is the quintessential inefficiency expert. That must be the only private sector area in which the government still reigns on high. The formalities requires to interact with…Continue Reading

Montezuma’s Revenge

I’m home today with a touch of some digestion pranks my system decided to play on me. It’s a little strange this sort of thing doesn’t happen more often to me than it does. I eat some pretty diverse, and oft raunchy, things. My system is pretty forgiving for all…Continue Reading

Konfabulator – Yahoo! Widgets

The Konfabulator tool was recommended to me by a coworker recently. He noticed that I used the Desktop Sidebar, a Longhorn-looking (Windows Vista) desktop component. To be honest, I was speculative of the Konfabulator’s ability to replace the Desktop Sidebar, both by its name and the source of information (he’s…Continue Reading

The North Georgia Celtic Festival

I’m Batman!

Superhero’s (and Dora the Explorer) assembled last night for autographs and pictures with the kids – or their parents in some cases. Dora’s appearance in the gig was a little out of place, though not ignored by the children. Most of them were probably there to see her more than…Continue Reading

Batman is Here!

Tonight, Batman will make an appearance at Lakeshore Mall in Gainesville. Rumor has it that Spiderman will also be there. I have this on good authority. You can probably expect to see them around 6:00pm.

The Dark Side of eBay

eBay marketers are potentially some of the seediest, unethical types out there. There are good deals to be found, sure. But there are also traps and deceptions around every corner. In this example, someone is using familiar practices to improve the sales of their product. I searched for “Jornada 720”…Continue Reading

Human Feces Powers Rwandan Prison

Disinformation \ Wired News Imagine eating food that was cooked using natural gas generated from your own human waste. Thousands of prisoners in Rwanda don’t have to imagine it — they live it. Prisoners’ feces are converted into combustible "biogas," or methane gas that can be used for cooking. It…Continue Reading
