Do You Suffer From a Small Penis?

Sometimes I utterly and completely fail to understand how anyone opens spam, let alone responds to them. They ask you questions like "do you suffer from a small penis?" or "are you having trouble pleasing your wife?" "Overweight? We can help!" "Need a date?" "In Financial Trouble?" "Want bigger breasts?"

WHO opens this crap? Seriously? Ugh.

QotD: Gay

Question: What percentage of your acquaintances are gay or bisexual?

My Answer: I think that about 5% may be gay, and I'm positive that about 7% are gay. So, I'll say about 10% of the people I know are gay. Of my "friends," a word I reserve for about ten people in my life, one is bisexual.

Xounds 2.0

I see that Xounds 2.0 is out. I was a big fan of the Interface sounds in Mac OS 9, and I used Xounds for awhile on X, but since removing all "haxies" I've got increased application stability and a tweak faster speed of operation. The only third-party stuff that shows up in my System Preferences is my PowerMate control panel, Synergy's control panel, and TinkerTool.

QotD: Software

Question: How many pieces of software do you buy per month, on average?

My Answer: I buy about three pieces of software per month, be they some $5 shareware or some $999 video editing software (at upgrade price, of course!).

Beer and Jet Engines

I don't care for beer much, but I bet that the jet-powered beer cooler could easily be adapted to suit my Coca-Cola cravings…

August 2003 Zeitgeist

Every month (since February) I post my site's referral search terms (not what people search for on my site). It's an interesting peek that illustrates "how people are finding me." Here's August's…

Fishin’ Key Largo

Monday night I got bad news: Jim was scheduled to work on Tuesday. That would have put our plans to go fishin' on hold for another week, and figuring the trip was cancelled, I stayed up way past my bed time to get some work done. I woke up at 7:30 (damn sunrise!) and puttered around the apartment. Jim called at 9 to say "we're goin' fishin' after all!" I got directions to Key Largo and quickly assembled everything I would need.

QotD: Neighborhood

Question: If you could change one thing about your city, town, or neighborhood, what would you change?

My Answer: I would make the average age of its residents 23. I would make them all female. I would make them all attractive and intelligent. I would make them all single and desperately in need of some geek love. These questions get easier every day!

QotD: Snow

Question: What is the oddest thing you've ever done in the snow?

My Answer: One time, in early March, I just couldn't get the golf bug out of my system. In two and sometimes three feet of snow (and sometimes just a wee bit of grass), I headed up to my favorite course and played a full eighteen holes. My toes hurt, my hands hurt, my nose hurt. Damn was it great!

QotD: eBay

Question: What is the most you've ever spent on eBay for a single purchase?

My Answer: $8. I use eBay to sell things, but very rarely do I buy anything.

QotD: Bad Words

Question: What is the worst word you can think of for a body part (male or female)?

My Answer: I've never really liked the four-letter "c" word (as it pertains to a woman's sensitive region). In fact, it's my least favorite word.

Camel Toes: Funny Stuff

In light of recent comments about Madonna and Britney's lame publicity stunt, I present to you two pieces of evidence to support my position that camel toes are indeed funny stuff…

Edit (May 31, 2011): As these links no longer go to their original sites, I've removed them. And Jamie has likely matured since this post in 2003, as have I. Camel toes are still kind of funny.

Blogshares of the Past

So, Blogshares is now officially passé, is it not?

Uniting generations, the MTV Video Music Awards!

P.S. Okay, maybe one, and that comment is "man, wicked camel toe!" :-D

Fuckwad Customers

Sometimes you wish people wouldn't buy your software, because then you wouldn't have to put up with bullshit like this:

I need this thing sent out today without question. If you cant pick up the phone and call me at an 800 number, I'm going to dispute the charges on the credit card and go with someone who will give me results. I've got my boss breathing down my neck on this and after reviewing different mail extractors on the net, you seem to have been the best one. I can't get a phone call from you? Please call me, it will only take a few minutes.

This is in response to over an hour of both on-the-phone and via-email tech support, almost all of which has not covered problems with our software, but the customer's inability to use Excel or other basic things.

I don't respond well to being threatened, I couldn't care less about his deadline, and for our cut of $59 I'm inclined to just tell him to go screw himself. We provide outstanding support, and to threaten us with a chargeback is ridiculous and childish.

In the end, gee, we'll suck it up and provide great service, as we always do. But dammit, sometimes a single customer can really just put a stain on the whole experience, I tell ya. >:-o
