Xbox 360

By Q-Bert - Posted on 29 August 2007

I've been thinking about an Xbox 360 to play with you girls...

But I cannot get used to the controls. Lord knows I've tried.

Now I see this:

Seriously, if I get these controls, will you guys tell me to ***k *ff ? I know a lot of Xbox fans feel it is unfair to use kbd+mouse on console games...

Rogers, for the love of gawd

By Q-Bert - Posted on 28 August 2007

Every evening, Rogers Internet goes kaput now. It's been doing so steadily for 6 nights in a row. There is also a lot of ghosting on the TV tonight.

Rogers, can you get your friggin' act together ? It's not like our local loop is part of a construction area, so it *has* to be the central office. If your admins can't cut the mustard then get some real help. You are looking just as bad as Bell right now, and that means you cannot go lower...

Stop paying crap salaries and hire some competent people.

Edit: I posted this at 5am, THE NEXT DAY since Rogers was kaput until 1am.

I have a holster too...

It's for my CASH, not my DS...

So, working today at the call center...

All calls handled...

My connection to my home machine is down because Rogers decided to be in toilet-seat mode...

Caught up on all of my mailing lists and forums...

Nothing new on Slashdot and Digg...

Can't read Fark from here ...

You guys don't post shit on this site ...


And then there were 3 errr 5 errr 6...

So, Noir left for BC this morning. So, that's one less in the house.
AND I kinda lost Maurice since he's now involved with Bioshock.

Oh, and my Tivo's guide data is now offline forever.

I guess I have to actually interact with Pebbles now.

Adding inline images, part deux

By Q-Bert - Posted on 22 August 2007

Someone asked how I can add full size images from other sites.
Well, you can put ina any valid HTML into your posts...
I suggest a <IMG SRC="http://blah/image.jpg" /> as part of your post.

Watch out for large images. You may want to put a WIDTH= and HEIGTH= as part of that tag...

Adding inline images.

By Q-Bert - Posted on 18 August 2007

OK, when you invoke Image Assist, and you select an image, make sure you keep "Not a URL" and then select a size to display. It will select thumbnail by default, which might not be what you wish.

All this together will permit you to display an inline image in your post/blog.

Having Blackwalt as a boss...

By Q-Bert - Posted on 18 August 2007

... must suck.

"Why doesn't this work?!?!"
"Gawddam, how hard could it possibly be?"
"My clients are calling!"
"I pay you too much!"
"What are you waiting for?"
"I will be in the bathroom if you need me..."
waaaaahmbulance, I swear ....

You know, because of Eric, I now feel like I always have a small red dot at the back of my head ...
