Wow, I do remember February/March seeming unseasonably warm last year and now it's insanely cold this year, so annoying.

Yeah last winter was very warm i remember. It would be sub 30 for like 1 day and then 60 the next 3. I think we got about 5 inches of snow throughout the whole winter.

When and if I get a MacBook I want to buy a black case with the apple logo still exposed. I want to buy flash gels and place it between the case and the computer and over the logo so it will glow say green or red.

These are flash gels btw.

In the middle of a Fantasy Baseball draft that started with no time limit between picks on Friday. Two idiots in the league keep taking anywhere from 8-24 hours to make one pick. At this rate we will be done by the All Star Break. So annoying...

EDIT: Er.... scratch that, guess there's a ****load of updates that need to be done first.

Oh well, might get a mission or two in before the game.

got told by boss early today i will not have to start going back and forth to asia again. my job is going to stay in toronto. this is such a relief...i'd mentally decided that if i had to start going back and forth again i'd quit my job instead. don't get me wrong...i don't hate asia or anything like that...but a toronto to beijing or hong kong flight is about 14.5 hrs each way...and i couldn't stomach doing that multiple times per month. it's hard to put into words how difficult not only the travel but the time change gets to be when you're doing it frequently.

on a different note, i finally got an ipad (my work/life is such i've been fine with a laptop). something that drives me crazy is my inability to work on word documents on an ipad. are there any apps where i can open a word document on my ipad and edit it as i could from my laptop? i have gotomypc - but have never tried to access that program from an ipad...does anyone know if you can use gotomypc from an ipad to work on word docs?

Problem is, my boss = owner, so anytime he sees stuff like that he takes it way too personal. He is also the kind of guy who goes and buys stuff at Costco, and will resell it under our company name, regardless of what it is, if he can MAYBE make $5. He literally bought luggage the other day at Costco for $500, and put it on our fabric website for $475. All the guy ever does is try to make a quick buck here or there, regardless of where he is or how he can do it.
what is your career path transition? always scary to do!

Considering how much time I wasted at work yesterday when I could've actually been productive just toying around with the new settings on my new machine, deciding to just continue bringing my old laptop into the office to goof off with during downtimes, as I know my productivity would plummet if I brought the new machine in.

And let me tell you this.... this old thing feels like a relic compared to my new one!

You can use GoToMyPC on an iPad. In regards to the other question, you can't edit Microsoft office documents on an iPad. You can only view them.

I know I'm not the only one streaming college basketball when I'm supposed to be working on something or paying attention.

Not here, then again doubt I'd stream it anyway, would probably just stream a radio station as usual. Been beyond swamped all day, although that's not a complaint. Day has flown by... can't wait to GTFO here and get a workout in. Then maybe watch some hoops after that if none of the hockey games look like they're worth watching.

I want to punch this woman in the bridge of the nose.

Read the below article. Imagine if you got fired from your job for making a joke at a football game, someone overheard you, and complained.

That's really ****ed up, shame on her. However, where there is despair, there is sometimes hope, and in this case, there is. Click on the link in that article and there is a campaign by a bunch of hackers to get her fired and put her company out of business or at least make them suffer lost business.

Uh.... what? She barely did anything wrong. She reported someone making a weak sexual joke, and then the event staffers and their employers were the ones that went way overboard in kicking them out and firing them.

She was just a bit oversensitive, big whoop. If we're going to get mad at everyone that takes offense at the slightest thing, we'd be here all day.

Plus, people raging at her online and trying to get her fired are infinitely more in the wrong than she was.

I don't know, IMO, this is a lesson in minding your own business she'll never forget and she really needs it if she is taking pictures of people and reporting them for saying "dongle". The whole thing is ****ed up, agreed on that, but this is her thing that she created by herself by doing harm to another. I can't feel bad for her.

In what way? She didn't force the event staff to kick them out or their employers to fire them. She just didn't want a couple guys next to her cracking jokes during a talk, so she used Twitter to contact event organizers to complain, which is apparently something they pay attention to and is done as otherwise nothing would've come from it.

And the reaction is ridiculous and entirely misplaced. Even if you think she acted entirely in the wrong (which she didn't, btw, as highlighted that apparently any form of sexual jokes were against the conference's code of conduct), the notion that you wouldn't feel bad for her for getting violent threats and her company getting spammed so hard that they fired her to alleviate the pressure is ridiculous.

A bit of an overreaction. If anything, people should be ticked at the event and for their employers for being so petty that they booted attendees and fired employees for a couple of wisecracks.

Her complaint is valid, the way she went about complaining was absolutely ridiculous. That sums it in a sentence if you ask me.

Big whoop? A family of five lost one of, if not the only, person bringing in income to put food on the table because she can't take a joke... that she wasn't part of in the first place!

Except what they were joking about was against the conventions rules... for a convention that is trying to attract more females to it in the first place.

No, a family of five lost one of, if not the only, person bringing in income to put food on the table because that person's employer fired someone because they heard they were cracking jokes at a conference.

The anger should be at the employer for firing an employee for such little cause.

Yeah, I'm pretty shocked he got canned for that. Also seems like they did it pretty immediately, which was extra surprising. At most places I don't think that's more than a slap on the wrist, and few day suspension without pay at the most. To get fired over it though? Sheesh.

Maybe I'm old fashioned but what ever happened to turning around and saying "Hey, do you mind not talking during the event? I'm trying to listen" as opposed to your first action being going CIA spy hunter trying to get the authorities to act on these people who weren't even being leud. And now some people, also wrong and overreacting, are exacting the same type of harm on her. But it can't be settled with conversation for the guy who doesn't have a job because of what she did. The whole thing is sad and discouraging, no question about it, but I am most disgusted with the way she handled the situation because that's where it started. There are about 100 other ways she could have handled it, first and foremost not taking a picture of these guys without even confronting them about it.
