Damn Internet Goblins!

Thursday, January 12, 2006

So I had  these grand aspirations for what slacking I wanted to get done on the net yesterday and they just plain weren't allowed to get done. The internet gods/gremlins/geeks whatever just didn't feel like cooperating with me.
I tried to get the rest of my PR and Xmas pictures uploaded so I could post them, but noooooooo. my browser kept freezing up and half o the pictures that did make it were corrupt dammit. Hopefully today or tomorrow I can get them up on the Visual Edition.
Blog Posts:
I also wanted to do a Wednesday Wist and talk about my job interview yesterday morning, but someone apparently crashed Blogger's servers so when  I tried to log on to post I just kept getting errors that said something like "Error, our servers are hosed, an engineer has been notified but is ignoring the situation." Ok, so maybe I'm ad-libbing. A little.
Anyway, the Wednesday Wist is posted over on the Audio Edition along with the current Slacker iTunes Music Library. Check it out and keep the tunes flowing!
As for the interview, it went pretty well. The guy I was supposed to interview with wasn't there when I got there because he had flown back from a meeting in Houston that morning and had to fight traffic. Instead I talked for a while with the other director in the company for half of the meeting until the guy I was supposed to talk with showed up. I hate job interviews, I always have the same problem with them as I have with women: I never know the right things to say until it's too late. I'm a natural salesman with the gift of gab. A friend once said he's pretty sure I could talk the bra off a nun. This is fine and good except for the fact that I'm great at promoting everything but myself. heh. Maybe I'm too nice, too modest, too, well, whatever. Anyway it was just a first round interview anyway so I'm not going to invest to much though into it. Sounds like it would be a fun job though, so we'll see how it goes.
I also tried to play some World of Warcraft on my new computer. It had been working, connection wise anyway, just fine until last night. I logged on and it downloaded the weekly patch. I logged back in to play and it refuses to connect to the Wow server. Everything else works fine; internet, wireless, all that. Big mikes comp had no problems, but even when I ran tracert to check the path time to the game server, it said it was unable to get a response. I'm hoping it's an issue on their end. Big Mike was nice enough to let me play on his comp instead of using his character though so I did end up getting another level on my char.
Anyway, the net gremlins seem to be letting me get by today, so hopefully it'll stay that way. Hope you all are having a great Thursday!

I feel the same way about interviews. It's like when you walk away from an argument and three minutes after it's too late you think of the best comeback ever. But I am sure it went great. Crossing my fingers for you!

Try Battlefield 2. That game is pretty addictive.

Marie - It was just a first round, apparently there will be at leat one more, and that's dependent on if the copmpany is around that long. heh. And yeah, internet goblins really suck!

Runt - I think it went ok, but I guess I'll jsut have to wait and see.

FINY - Exactly! You talk for an hour and the second you get to your car you're like: "Dammit! I should said XXX and XXX" Oh well. Thanks!

Anisa - I haven't tested it out yet though ;O)

OzzyC - Thanks man! I'll need it.

Miss Tude - I dunno, I would assume so. I doubt they're the sexy Vicky Secret kind, but I'm sure they got em.

Yeah most of the Battlefield series is good. I have 1942, Vietnam, and the starwars vesion as well. hehe
