Seen this yet? FML (F*ck My Life)

April 27, 2009

FML or Fuck My Life, basically you write down crappy stuff that happens to you, always closing it with FML.

Here is an example of one that tickled me:   “Today, my boyfriend told me he couldn’t hang out with me because he felt really sick. I went to his house anyway to surprise him with homemade soup. I walk in to his room only to find him hooking up with my sister. She can’t drive, our mom drove her there. FML”


Leave Voicemail without ringing their Cell

Yet another way to minimize human interaction,

Step 1: Dial 267-SLYDIAL (267-759-3425) from any phone
Step 2: Enter the U.S. cell phone  number you want to “sly dial”
Step 3: Leave a voice message
Step 4: Go about your business without having to worry about speaking to someone directly

PC vs. Mac (v1)

April 25, 2009

I am a PC user.   I have always had at least one, and despite their clear and often overwhelming flaws, I don’t see that changing.

My company recently provided me with a macbook pro to use for work projects as their entire universe is mac oriented.   I have used macs before, and was somewhat comfortable navigating the basics, I never had one to call my own, one that I could really dig into and explore (ie. screw-up)

First (and only) thing PC users switching to mac need to know is that EVERYTHING is easier and most things are better.  In particular I have found the operating system to be more intuitive and ultimately superior to anything Microsoft has put out.

Mac computers are creatively designed for outstanding usability with attention to detail and craftsmanship.

That being said, I have to tell ya …the people at Apple really suck at making mice.  I mean these things are horrible.   SIf you decide to join the masses who are switching over to mac, do yourself a favor and opt for a non-Apple mouse.

This brings me to the second most annoying thing about macs …hardcore mac users.  I am talking about people who blindly scream about how much “Windblows sucks” and that anything made by Apple MUST be the best possible option.  These poor schmucks are so obsessively loyal to Apple they’d rather endure a miserable existance with their “Mighty Mice” or learn complicated multi-key commands (called shortcuts) than buy a mouse which can actually “right click”.



Cooper vs. macbook

Cooper is alive and well… and apparently reading my geeky computer magazines


Looking for some new music?

April 20, 2009

I highly recommend “On My Way” from Cocoon. Its one of those songs that is both easy on the ears and has you reaching to hit repeat over and over.

They win additional points for having one of the best album titles I have heard in a while … “My Friends All Died in a Plane Crash”

Just click the link and enjoy!
