Waking up is never easy...
Monday, August 30, 2004 | Author: Dav
It took me 10 minutes to get out of bed and into the shower, but when I'm done I find that our fridge has chilled the milk too much to my taste (in my cornflakes) and I stumble over to the microwave. Now I've had soo much to do over the weekend, including a client's dinner where I came into contact with a magical item called the "Never Go Empty Beer Glass" which in its self was a wonderfull thing, but it sort of explains why I'm so gorggy today.
I slide my cup of milk into the microwave, punch the 'High' button and press 40 seconds. I then press the 'Cancel'. Then I stand there like an idiot for a few seconds, before I slap my forhead and do the whole thing again, 'High', 40 seconds... then I press CANCEL AGAIN! This goes on for a few times before I give up and have cold COLD milk for my cereal.

The offending microwave

The evil control panel

Suited OS
Tuesday, August 24, 2004 | Author: Dav
Well as usual Ales here had some quiz thing on his blog and his said 'Windows 95'. After I stopped laughing, I tried it myself and look at the results below.

You are Slackware Linux. You are the brightest among your peers, but are often mistaken as insane.  Your elegant solutions to problems often take a little longer, but require much less effort to complete.
Which OS are You?

Makes you wonder huh?

Something funny
Tuesday, August 24, 2004 | Author: Dav
I dont know why, but the comic from Penny Arcade today really made me laugh. It was pretty good, if I'd say so myself.

EDIT: The whole comic could not fit into the blog template so you'll have to just click the hyperlink. Sorry guys.

Tea and Ales
Thursday, August 19, 2004 | Author: Dav
Well Ales has been on my case about the tea I drink in one of his blog posts, and I guess I owe it to myself to educate him on the finer points in making and drinking tea. Below are some shots I took. Hope it helps Ales

The actual box the tea bags come in

Another shot of the tea bag

I like milk with my tea, fresh milk

Ahh nothing like a fresh cup of tea
Additional Blog

Greetings !

Well I guess I have TOO much time on my hands, and because of that, I've started work on another Blog!

This blog is just going to be a funny spin on some of the things that go on in the office, and some of it will be pure fiction. Since I plan to post longer items of note here, I will be posting it maybe once or twice a week.

So everyone go here:
The dregs of I.T.

Enjoy. And do comment on the new blog.

SAP and HP getting it on?
Monday, August 16, 2004 | Author: Dav
Wow I was reading some work related material and then I came across this link. Its amazing, what they say about SAP is probably not true (well most of it) then again I'd LOVE to have a look at how SAP trully works.
SAP seems to have ERP in well, I guess I'll have to check it out one of these days.

Linux Pics by Ales
Monday, August 16, 2004 | Author: Dav
Yeah FINNALY Ales does the right thing and puts up pictures. Nevermind if its on Linux, its a good start. If you're reading his post, and you're wondering what he's going about on Knoppix, I'll leave a post in his blog (at the moment I cant even post a comment, its either Blogger's server or something on my end)

Dav out

EDIT: I've come across 5 posts of my last blog "Surreal spam". Getting rid of them as we speak. Oddly, it seems like something's up with the servers. The odd bit is, MSN and some IRC servers (dalnet) seem to be funky too
Surreal spam
Monday, August 16, 2004 | Author: Dav
Ever have one of those days where your spam seems to be TAILOR MADE for you?
Meh, well just wondering.

I’m kind of busy, so I’ll post some more stuff soon.

PS: I am actually thinking of putting up a ‘creative writing’ blog, and it might be IT based. I think it should help reduce/alleviate some of my stress problems. I’m not sure yet, let me try it out on a target audience and then put it public.

Sick as a dog
Monday, August 09, 2004 | Author: Dav
I'm sick. Like a DOG. The whole 9 yards. Flu, fever, coughs, chills, random sweating.
My nose is blocked, and when I do blow it clear, its like there's a pressure inbalance in my face and ears and it hurts for a while.

I'm at work now (Monday). Looks like what Mossy said about "killing youself for work till you're 30" seems to be true.

Broadband goodness!
Wednesday, August 04, 2004 | Author: Dav
Well our broadband was down the past 2 days in the office, so all I could do was sit around and hope I didnt go crazy. Its back up, so I'll have my daily dose of Penny Arcade and other stuff soon.

Sweet monkeys on a stick.
