|Latest Fave Rave!
|I am compelled to file a grievance here....
It's 10:00 p.m. and as a proper geek I am watching George Carlin on TV while surfing the web as any 'real computer' geek ought to ... On my TiBook....
I was browsing through the abacus archives on AY2K and had to share the MacAbacus series with my wife.
I saw that the URL's formed a numerical sequence, so I edited the URL to:
And I got your congrats for being curious.
So I had to dig further, I edited to:
Here's where things went wrong.
I laughed so hard, so loud, that I woke up my 4 year old daughter from her bedroom upstairs.
Now my wife won't let me visit the Geek Love section anymore... She's pissed! ;-)
Anyways, all kidding aside, thanks for the great humor! About Apple --It's hard to believe that you can love a company's products so much but get so frustrated with the company! I feel bad for the trouble you had with the Mother Ship lately... I even bought up a Polo and a cap tonight to make sure I could get my voice heard!
|LOL! Great email, thanks Keith! :)
|Irresponsible Manilow Usage
Dear Ms Nitrozac,
I'd like to file a complaint about your irresponsible usage of Barry Manilow's picture in your quickpoll pages.
A good friend of mine, Heather, recently suffered a severe musical breakdown after "Copacabana" became stuck in her head as a result of viewing one of your quickpoll images, to wit: here!
Fortunately, I was on hand to administer a liberal dosage of Our Lady Peace to neutralize the Manilonium levels building rapidly in her system. Had I not acted when I did, the damage to her musical sanity could have been irrepairable...
Now, because no permanent damage was done, we've decided not to get the lawyers involved... I just ask that you be more careful in the future when using Barry Manilow's images, and to please consider the possible damage such actions may cause. I'm sure, being a responsible member of the online society, you will take the necessary steps to prevent such a mishap from occuring in the future. Perhaps you could consider using alternative pictures when Barry Manilow is not strictly required.
May I recommend more pictures of your boots?
Thank you for your time.
