it's been a long day and only Kraft Dinner can calm my nerves


thanks to the goodness of advertising, i've learned that my favourite episode of South Park will be on the Comedy Network tonight - Terrence and Phillip in Not Without My Anus.  i remember the first time i saw it years ago, i was waiting patiently to find out who Cartman's dad was when the creators of South Park decided that they'd keep us all in suspense for yet another week by showing us the Terrence and Phillip special.  thirty minutes of canadian and fart jokes was enough to make me an instant fan.  the only unfortunate thing about the episode is that Canada no longer has two CFL teams called the RoughRiders (damn Ottawa and their loser fan base).

and i have Swiss Cheese crackers to snack on at work today.

i haven't been paged with anything of importance since i started carrying the blackberry yet, but i do have an extensive list of login failures in my blackberry's inbox.  apparantly every time someone tries to login to our database server, i get an email to tell me about that.  from what i can figure, it's to make sure people aren't trying login to compromise the system, but the only people who would even have access to login to the database are people who have access to log directly on to that server, so it's pretty much just a list of people who don't type their passwords in properly the first time.

    Haha! So, it's one of those "user-keyboard-interface" errors, eh? I feel sorry for our I.T. guys when they have to tell an employee that the problem is that they are dumb.

    surprisingly, i can still get away with telling someone "the problem is between the keyboard and the chair" without too many people catching on. i should probably start telling them that their actions are causing ID10T errors on the server.
