Quiz Time

without comments

Whilst waiting for my drink at Panda Express I could see a young member of staff taking a quiz on a PC. Saw one question:

What is the correct thing to do when there is a jam[*] in a food processor?

  1. Always unplug the processor
  2. Use your fingers to unjam the processor
  3. Use a metal object to free the jam
  4. Never unplug the processor

The young girl reached for the training manual and started flipping through the pages. The supervisor serving me said to her “it’s number 1”, the girl stared at the screen. I got my drink and sat down to hear the supervisor say again “it’s number 1, really”.

Back to the old theme while I find a new one.
[*] I assume this refers to a blockage rather than a strawberry preserve used on toast.

Free CD of the Month – May

with 3 comments

It’s that time again, yesterday I received the form for my next free Sony CD. Once again I invite you to suggest something for me to order, it can be anything from the Sony catalogue. And, yes, I also invite the standard rootkit jokes and comments.

Showing My Support

without comments

Today is Day Without An Immigrant day, where people in support of illegal aliens and other criminals will try to hurt the country by not going to work and not buying anything. Well, I’ve decided to show my support by, today, not buying anything from a store that is run by anyone with ties to an illegal alien. Not sure how I will determine that but I am sure they will appreciate my effort.
