What really grinds my gears!

You know what really grinds my gears?  Facebook pictures of white chicks doing gang signs.  WoW mobs.  Super Bowl commercials that don't live up to the 'superness' of the rest of the ads.  Cog debris.  Drivers who have the right-of-way and refuse to take it.  Deformed peanut M&Ms. People who misuse apostrophes. Viral videos. TV shows that run over 20 years, but don't get old until you realize they have been around 20 years, and then you're like, "I think I'll watch Extreme Home Makeover instead". That's what really grinds my gears.

The one where Chad moves you

Ok, You all might as well pack your things and move over to the new house. See you there! (How gay was that -"See you there!") Update your bookmarks and your memory banks and your feeds and you're leaks.

We just have to go away for a while and dream it all up again...

Plan 4 is moving.

We are leaving Blogger and putting on our big boy pants and running it all with wordpress. We have our own domain, none of that crap. The thought was that it would be nice to have some of the big boy features, like categories, trackbacks, socialbookmarking links, etc. Blogger is rolling that out now but we've already boxed most everything up and sent it over to the new house. Its actually all over there now, we just want tp put up the drapes before we invite people over. Jan 1 for sure. Probably sooner. The place is a mess while we unpack. The biggest reason we want to move is that wordpress is more conducive to growth in a world wide takeover fashion.

Fake news by Chad and Todd #14

Massachusetts - FBI agents uncovered what appears to be a new breed of terrorist sleeper cell. A COOKS safe house in down town Middleboro was where agents found a lab used for weaponizing peanut oil. The COOKS, (Culinary Order Of Killing Stuff) were on the verge of deploying what some experts are calling a sophisticated recipe for disaster. Agents are also quick to point out that this has nothing to do with the film “Recipe for Disaster” starring John Larroquette and Lesley Ann Warren.

The peanut oil has been chemically changed to be not only lethal to those with peanut allergies, but any human with skin.

Although COOK members had refined the process and had working weapons grade peanut oil, internal strife kept if from being deployed.

FBI representative Special Agent Todd Mulder explains, “ It seems that half of the group wanted to use it in the creation of a main dish, and some thought it better used in preparing a side dish. Even among the two sides there was disagreement as to what wine to serve with it. It's just a case of to many cooks you know?”

The one where Chad has a bad day.

Nothing stinks worse to me than having to call the help desk for something. Worse yet is when there wasn't a problem to begin with. I thought I had locked myself out of my workstation, {enter your password wrong 5 times and try it for yourself} Well, I know how to fix that. I occasional use a boot disk tool that lets me blank the passwords out completely and gain access to XP. Problem is the floppy drive in this machine doesn't work. I don't know the admin password {yet} and could not log in with that to change it. Turns out in the end I was not locked out even though I saw the message that said I was. Ok.

Now, the scale at the other place we have is frozen.

I drank my coffee out of a smaller cup and got less of it.

I'm not real happy with the lunch I put together.

I got a call from NBC about the Roomba vid. They need me to send them a higher resolution version for possible broadcast but I don't have one. I always make the highest possible but didn't this time. I also have removed the raw video from my machine. I can recapture most of it but I'm missing one tape. It looks like it was the tail end of the Roomba stuff. Maybe. I also remember taping over a tape thinking, "I won't need this again". I never use a tape twice. Its a cardinal rule. I'm beginning to think "Never" and "Always" do not mean what I think they mean. I also rarely label tapes. That could be my only hope at this point. I have 12 white maxell tapes. I can account for 11 of them. Even if I did have it, I don't think I'm all that excited about the NBC thing anyway. I lost to a flying sex toy.

I have some great ideas for Youtube stuff. But 1. When and 2. Where can I fit that into an over stuffed schedule.

There was something I was supposed to do and forgot.

Oh, I also glendabrawl my coragant. I think he is the blagtasiest, sognerfeld in the world. I'd like to see him get zonderfluged up the aspender with a sharp jorgenjorgen. That's right.

The one where Chad becomes "The guy who..."

I did it! I used a phrase first! You know phrases such as "...cup of shut the hell up..." and "...Few sandwiches short of a pic-nic..." These phrases have been around forever. Well, I made one up today. I Googled it and got 0 results. I think that's enough to go on record as "the guy who made it up".

here we go,

"Flaming cup of queer"

I'm the first. When Google spiders me again I'll show up as the one. The one.

The one where Chad gets the memo

I found this on my PC, I made it for a guy at work . If you have ever seen the movie "Office Space" you'll get it. If you have not seen it. Well, sorry, I can't fill your netflix queue for you. Copy and paste it into your preferred word processing application. Make it bigger, add graphics, add more lines, fax it, email it whatever. Enjoy.

The one where Chad posts about annoyances

Here are some pointers for people with computers. Things I noticed when working on a recent PC "acquisition".

1.One anti virus software is enough. Four does not make you safer. It makes you slower.
2.Three instances of different Spy ware / Ad ware softwares monitoring at once is to much. Just use one.
3.If your PC comes from a company such as Dell or Gateway and has lots of bloat ware. Remove some of it.
4.Your hard drive capacity limit is not a challenge. Don't try and fill it with junk.
5.If you don't need QuickTime, Microsoft Office, a keyboard manager and who knows what else starting up when you boot, take it out of the "Start" folder. Please.

Today's post was going to be about funny road signs I had made. Except I didn't have any funny road signs I could make. I had one idea that was a straight arrow and I was going to write, " No Gays" It just wasn't funny enough for my hands to make. I had another idea to have a guy "helping a sheep over the fence" so to speak with the big red line through it. It was funnier at 4 a.m.. I turn 30 soon.

The one where Chad talks Vista.

I have to apologize. Vista was late because of me... I insisted that Bill give it to me on floppy disk. Not 1.44mb disks either but 5 1/4 disks. Here is the package it came in.

The install will take a while.

The joke here is that Vista is big.

The one where Chad posts about Snoopy

This Holiday season, when you hear the tired old "Snoopy vs. Red Baron" Be delighted that the Royal Guardsman are still at it. I wish this were not true, but it is. Here are the lyrics to "Snoopy Vs. Osama Bin Laden". http:// Copy and paste in Blogger does it again, some of the words are mashed. Who cares.

Francis John BurdettMusic: Barry DeanWinslow

Out in the desert.... in a real bad landSome people want to see the end of manAl-Qaeda took over .... from the TalibanTerrorizing all they can

Now Snoopy's in the motor pool but wants to fightHe wants to keep his friends all safe at nightCharley drives the Bradley...... an' Snoopy makes her singWaitin' for the orders just to ... go do their thing

Chorus:Osama Bin Laden keeps runnin' awaySnoopy's gonna find of these daysAnd when he does... (and when he does)... ya know we're all gonna singGood bye Bin Laden and the end of your terrorist ring.

When the orders came down, they were short one manSo Charley asked Snoopy "would ya join the band"It's off to the hills...... and follow the mapJust get Bin Laden don't ya..... take any crap

Headin' down a pathway.... when a bomb blew upThe tank was out of business an' ol' Charley was hurtSnoopy said to Charley "you just sit tightI'll fix everything ... it's gonna be alright"

Then up ahead.... in a cloud of dustStood ol' Bin Laden just lookin' at usSnoopy smiled and aimed..... then he fired his gunTAKE THIS Bin Laden now you.... won't have to run

Chorus: 2Osama Bin Laden won't be runnin' awaySnoopy finally found him.... and this was the dayHe took him out..... (he took him out)... now the world can singGood bye Bin Laden and the end of your terror ...... (repeat chorus)

(Last line) terrorist ring
