Rants *enter at own risk*


Recommended Posts

Rant: I went to a computer fair the other day and bought all the parts to make my new comp, but after I had started pulling appart my old one I realised I forgot to buy a new power supply, now I have too half built computers on my desk, neither of which I can use. Which is too bad because I have a plugin on my old comp that is nearly ready to be released.

Can you take out the HDD and get the data off of it?

I could but it doesn't matter now, I just bought a power supply today and should be able to post it once my new comp is up and running.

Curtis, you need a signature. If you need, I will make you a signature :)
I do need one don't I, I had a nice image I made in PDN but it just didn't scale well when I resized it, pity though, its one of my decent pdn creations.

RANT: People who capitalize every word. It's worse than complete 1337 speak...

When I read what people post I read it in voice in my mind, and that makes me read it as every word is a start to a new sentence.. It drives me batty!

You would think it would be tedious to type like that, hitting shift every word. But nooo...

Who says everyone needs a sig?

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

NAH, THERE'S SOMETHING CALLED CAPS LOCK. IT'S FUN!

But seriously, I know what you mean. Caps lock should be banned from keyboards.

RANT Big time!

I am the forum moderator on a small genealogical site. My personal e mail was given out by one of the members (on two other genealogical forums) saying I do excellent FREE research. Today I had 163 e mails in my inbox. over 1/2 outside of the area of my expertise, another 1/4 just straight spam, and the other 1/4 legit requests for help. About 20 of those legit ones ...I just can't beleive...even after I explained that I do not do out of my pocket expense research, they still had the nasty to curse at me and blame me for offering free research and then not following thru. Duhhhh?

What a bunch of losers. Tell them to get smart and do their own research. :P

yes some days I'd love to tell a few people to get stuffed, but its taken me 20 years to build up the reputation as a professional paid researcher. I'm more PO'd that the person within our genealogical research team gave my personal e mail out and told them I would do it for FREE!

thanks for listening, I just had to rant that somewhere.

RANT: People that say, "I'll be honest with you..."
Couple that also with the line: 'I'm not being racist when I say this, but...'.

Hmhm, because after declaring that little gem we all now know what follows is bound to be of a racial focus.

Likewise with 'sexist' or other, socially-frowned upon subjects.

...taken me 20 years to build up the reputation as a professional paid researcher...
Wow, a side to you we have not heard of before, an impressive side I must add. By the way, I, too, find it despicable that your e-mail address was distributed without your prior consent. Morons, it would have taken mere minutes to type up a private message or whatnot to ask you of your permission, whether you would have condoned it or not.

That behaviour just proves my occasional streak of cynicism: you can't trust people as far as you can throw them. You give them an inch, they take it a mile. You have your e-mail address, they then scatter it far and wide like blasted, coloured confetti. Yes, they may have had good intentions at heart, but they were doing it to feel good about themselves, so they could turn around and say 'yo, that was me that sorted you out there. Me.'. Why yes, you untrustworthy bugger, drag someone else into this why don't you, reeling in oma, a well-respected and unknowing member into your sordid egocentric affair, you absolute...

I hope you find out who it was, oma, and slap some sense into them.

Too much?
