Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    This is probably also an appropriate thread to note that just two hours ago a university sysop was asking me what "ess-see-ess-eye termination" is.

    well... in their defense.... SCSI stopped being used 10 years ago... so....


    no. fuck it. I can't defend that. kill them.

    no. fuck it. I can't defend that. kill them.

    The guy looks at least 45. And there are at least 8 SCSI scanners in the building. The two up here are only 4-5 years old. Someone ordered these and installed PCI SCSI cards into our computers. It wasn't I. I would've ordered the same exact models in USB for $1000 less. I suspect payoff shenanigans between the university buyer and the contract suppliers.

    And they only sent a head guy over after I bitched, because the previous tech that came up tried to tell us that grinding gears was a driver issue.

    no.

    I'm pretty sure one of the contestants will find a way to alt-tab between the testing suite and the AOL Twilight chatroom. And even at $10 an hour, that guy can afford wine coolers. They won't even have to manufacture additional drama when the guy ends up in a love triangle with two chicks from the same chatroom that turn out to be a 15 year-old girl and her 300 lb mom.

    Man, our techs don't even service SCSI scanners anymore. Everything we sell is either firewire or USB2.0, or has a proprietary connection to a dedicated control PC that runs an embedded OS and is network attached.

It's almost time for me to make dinner to I am happy about that. Oh! I am selling my car, it's only been out for one day and I've already got some interest. I guess today is a good day.

    I thought Teefs was already in Vancouver. Why are you selling your car?

    I am working today which means I get overtime considering I had already worked 40 hrs this week by the time Thursday ended so that is good. I have a long weeked coming up which means I get to go fly fishing with my brother and dad tomorrow which is pretty much the most exciting thing I have going on lately. I don't know how that sounds, but I'm strangely content with that.

    I assumed "this seems like the appropriate thread" was clear enough to suggest that people interested in the topic may find similar subject matter amusing. Your response illustrated that it didn't apply to you, but seemed to demonstrate no awareness of such. Messageboard threads are generally organized by topic, but I am allowing for the fact this is a less structured sub-forum with a general social atmosphere, such that aside from topic, persons may also be addressed directly. I may not know the appropriate amount of information on a topic, but someone may still address me directly on such a topic, at which time I could offer a response. Alternately, I may not know the appropriate amount of information on a topic, but could seek to understand or be better informed. Your post indicated that you neither knew nor had further interest in knowing. You punctuated this with a shrug. Thus, I have to assume you have some confusion over the matter of social address. Because if you do not know, do not care to know, and were not addressed, of what function is your reply to the conversation?

    Working as a tester for Nintendo wasn't so bad, but it's really nothing to compete over. I imagine whoever wins will wonder why they embarrassed themselves for a badly paid job replaying the 10 minute introductions of mostly terrible games all day.

    She should be in Vancouver by today or tomorrow. She'll be unpacking for about a day and she needs to buy some stuff when she gets there, so another day for that. I am selling my car because I don't really need it anymore.

    Woo! Overtime! Also, a long weekend after overtime is nice, I hope you have a great time fly fishing with your brother and father. It's not really my thing, but from what I have heard it is a relaxing experience.

    annie you're being totally ridiculous

    If you're going to be all pedantic about it, I just thought it was funny that all you dudes are scoffing at a guy for not knowing what an scsi thingy is when I have no clue what it is, but on the other hand, unlike the guy, I am not in a position where I would be expected to know what that is.

    you can go ahead and make every little thing into a big honkin' deal, I just don't see why you gotta jump down a guy's throat for addressing a post you made, especially given that I did not slight you in any way.

    She should have a good time shopping in Vancouver. It's a pretty eclectic place.

    Yes, fly fishing is for me all about the actually rythmn of casting. Plus, MAN STUFF PUT HAIR ON CHEST, or something to that effect.
