Out of the Blue

This morning we escaped a nasty side effect of the heat wave that's engulfed our area when the garbage was collected. The problem was a chicken carcass that was a little far gone when it was thrown out right after the garbage was removed last week, so it sat around baking ever since. The extreme heat accelerated its return to nature considerably, and the smell from the garbage became so foul (no pun intended) it was almost unbearable. I just can't imagine what it must be like to be a sanitation worker at this time of year.

I'm still on DSL, as the new cable modem didn't fix things, so a repair guy is coming today. Fingers crossed.

Not to be picky but that URL comes up with 2 different exploits/trojans fyi.

You might want to email Blue and have him snip that, if that's the case.




Mine, I guess?
Found it on the corporate computer, which isn't a fraction as locked down as my own, so we'll see what happens when I get to work - hopefully FireFox (which I wasn't even supposed to install) was security enough.

Run it in a virtual machine.

The DSL seems to be fine on our end. The site is working great!

This is my connection I'm talking about... The site itself is on a somewhat more substantial pipe.

Heh, yeah, my sad attempt at humor. I meant that your "slower" DSL connection hasn't affected us at all.

Are you really noticing a difference? Web surfing and stuff would seem to be about the same. You'd just notice it if you tried to download all 30 GB of Max Payne.

Surfing web pages you generally don't notice the difference. Streaming media and things like that become problems, though.

I don't know why the CIA or whomever even needs to torture people with waterboarding and stuff. Just tell the guy, 'We're about to immerse you waist deep in a pool with things that are going to swim up your Johnson and another one that wants to chew your nuts off'. Forget making them talk you wouldn't be able to shut them up.

Hell I'd confess to being Hitler.

I did. My fear is I don't know if I'd like it, or how long I'd play it, so I'd hate to have you think you wasted a code on me.

I guess I'd rather waste my own money than someone elses, and I figure it's going to wind up dirt cheap in the upcoming sale.

But I do appreciate it!

It's a code from an indie bundle. Since I already had the game before buying the bundle, it's not like I wasted money on it. If you want it, I'll be on Steam, if not I'll put it up on a private or group giveaway on Steam Gifts so it goes to someone here at Blues.

Are those the ones that swim up your dick? I'm not googling that at work or anything, but yeah, that's straight out of a Stephen King book...

Yeah, I imagine every guy's reaction when they first learn about these demons from the lowest pits of hell is the exact same. That is just seriously fucked up.

Yeh, though I'd heard that the stories of it swimming "up stream" (as it were) for people peeing off the shore are probably exaggerated

Still, definitely an horrid parasite out of the bowels of hell.

I wonder how much god / zeus / mother-earth / whatever laughed their ass off the first time one decided to "set up shop" in some animal's junk.
Well that will teach those apes from pissing in my stream
