Time seems to grind to a halt when you're not around, yet oddly spins wildly out of control when you are.

Dislexyz

Greetings,

Recently I find myself a little number dyslexic when saying numbers out loud. I was watching tv and it had an ad on a movie / drama titled '1492' but when I said it out loud I said "1942".

Normally this wouldn't bother me, but I noticed I did the same thing at a client's office during an IT Audit. They had a report called "RET 1503" but I kept refering to it as RET 5103.

Lots of fun!

Greetings,

I don't know about you guys out there, but I'm very sure that in the course of a day's work, you'll come across an idiot or two. Now I don't work with customer service or a helpdesk, but at times, due to the nature of my work, I've had to provide tech based support to people that DON'T EVEN PAY ME!

Take for example, yesterday.

X: Hello, I need help!
Me: Uh, hey there hows it going? Good to hear from you too!
X: Yes yes hello. Look, I need help with something. I cant get my news! OMGZ!
(Ok ok so he didn't say 'omgz' he's 45 or something for god's sake!)
Me: News? Like BBC or CNN? On the TV?
X: No no no who watches TV these days? Online! The interweb!
(again, he said internet, I just changed it to interweb)
Me: Oh yeah ok cool, so you cant get your news. Why?
X: I don't know I keep clicking on it and it just shows the same page!
Me: Err, and how am I supposed to help again?
X: YOU'RE THE IT GUY!
Me: And you're my uncle.
X: IT GUY's ALWAYS HELP OUT!
Me: Help out uncles? On the phone? At 5pm when I'm having my tea and watching teh tv NEWS?
X: YES!
Me: Wow, amazing. Anyway, whats the website that doesn't let you get the news from.
X: Its
Me: Oh ok I don't know about that site, but I'd guess its using RSS.
X: Are sass?
Me: R. S. S. Google it.
X: So how do I fix it.
Me: Use firefox


No, really, use firefox damnit!
Ceramics

Greetings,

I've come across ceramic knives! I think ceramics are the next big thing to come along since Tupperware! And no, I've not been drinking.

I've long read about Empire shocktroopers and their ceramic body armour, but this is so far the first (at least to me) real-world consumer ceramic product I've seen so far. I like the wikipedia stub on ceramic knives. The first question I had in my head was "Wow , this looks like its going to pose a problem to security all over the world!" But guess they worked that out as well.
