I wouldn't say I'm mad per se...

I'm just a bit annoyed with the folks at work. It seems any time a new concept is presented and I seem to get it or want to run with it, anyone who doesn't get it tries to discredit it. Then months down the line when they finally understand, they want to implement it and present the idea as if it's something that hit them during their morning poo.

We're looking into data mining now and the conecpt I suppose is a bit vague and perhaps perplexing to those in non-technical positions. The thing that bothers me is, if you don't understand it, how can you argue that it won't work?

Moreover, it just so happens I've been researching this VERY approach with a friend outside of work for the past 3 - 4 months, so when they brought in a consultant today to talk about this stuff I was pretty much the ONLY person pumped for it and the only person that seemed to get that no matter how many teeny tiny situational issues the non-technical users came up with, they're simply not technical enough to get that unstructured data is unstructured data no matter how you splice it.

On top of that, my partner on this endeavor--the SENIOR software engineer--is classically trained as a film major so all his technical expertise was learned via the internet. I'm not trying to discredit his skills, but there are times when it becomes clear that despite having more real world experience than me, his comprehension of a lot of the theory is lacking. However, he seems to always need to have the last word when I seem to excel in something as if he somehow had something to do with it--or perhaps just to seem like I don't know anything he doesn't know.

I guess really what it boils down to is that over the course of two years or so I've taken on and successfully completed any task they've thrown at me whether I've seen it before or not. The one time I've actually seen something prior to having it brought up at work, they all think I'm ....in' nuts bc they don't get it...

That's why they pay me to come here. Cuz they know everything.

I am upset because my amp sucks as does math homework.

Also all my friends are out of town. Including the Girlfriend. Sucks for me.

I happen to provide affordable online session drumming, drum programming, mixing, and mastering! Hit me up via PM if you're interested.

My friend was over last night toying with my new analog boost pedal (which I love and admire)
While I wasn't looking the ....er thought it'd be a good idea to plug an adapter into it. He decided to plug my Line 6 M13 adapter, which has an out put of something like 200 volts? into this 9 volt pedal. Frying it.

Now I'm so ....ing pissed because I dropped a lot of money into that pedal, had it for a few days, now it's ....ing fried. This was like, the coolest pedal I ever owned. Used it all the time.

No. There is no possible way for me to get it. It's not an option. I'm just "glad" that:
1-Nothing happened to me
2-It was free. My uncle gave it to me. I have my old iphone 3G.

But still, I was going to sell it. God dammit...

I'm mad because someone just posted a NGD Blackmachine thread. I won't say who... but I'm not happy.

Oh and no I'm not jealous. Not at all. Not even a little bit. BTW I live in a mini mansion and I'm going to bang my smokeshow wife tonight and I won't even be thinking about the B7 while I'm hitting that. Nope. Not at all. Oh and I benched 285 5 times tonight. Yup. So there. Don't even need a B7. Thing's too light anyways I'd probably break it. Gonna play my Loomis tonight. Yup. A real man's guitar. So there. Sigh.

tl;dr did I mention I'm not jealous? 'cuz I'm not.

I'm a lover… Not a fighter... But I'm also a fighter, so don’t get any ideas.

Mad because scheduling my 17th birthday party is hard. I want about 8 attractive teenage girls. 2 could come. Blah Rescheduled!

Of course now I'm happy that I'm even friends with all these attractive teenage girls! Just not romantically involved.

Plus mad because I can't find (havent even played yet) a minecraft server.

I'm mad because I just some dick in my studio saying that 7 string guitars are worthless... Telling me I need to play through a bass amp or I should leave it up to the bass player. I just about beat him to death with a rock or with one of my guitars. It would have been poetic justice.

Oh yeah I am also mad because the Fray is a band and people think there are gods gift to music.

great thread.

Thats pretty much how I handled it. Just my last line was "I like extended range guitars, sorry if I offended you". When he comes back I will have my 8 string out and then we will see

I don't want to have a pity party but will people ever just shut the .... up about 7 and 8 string guitars if they don't like them. The good old rule of if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say it. Why try and start a fight over a string or two. I wasn't saying you have to use this guitar. It was hanging on my wall and they take that as an invention to argue.

Maybe I will buy a 9 or 10 string just to spite him

Staff member called in from home with a problem connecting to the VPN on her new work laptop.

Ran her through a couple of things, turns out, she didn't have it connected to her home internet connection in any way.

"Shouldn't that happen automatically?"

-_-

And lucky me, she has no idea how to do it herself so I'm going to do a house call tomorrow to save talking her through it over the phone and having her mishear and misunderstand and have to go through the process 6 times before she gets it right.

Oh well, the extra time I'll have to book for that will probably give me enough time in lieu for a day off, yay!
