Don't think people realize the depth of the Kansas vs Missouri rivalry goes.

Ever been watching TV and think, "That's the stupidest thing I'd ever seen." Only to find the next stupidest thing 10 minutes later.

Wow, I lived in these apartments a year in college. I was on the other side of the building though. They've changed them a bit. New windows I see. New decks coming soon...

BMW = Apple
"If you went to BMW and asked them why they don't outsell the Ford Taurus, they would say they don't want to make that sort of car," says Mr Jobs. "Apple has 25 million customers around the world, and our goal is to give them the best personal computer that we can, with the best operating system and some of the best applications."

Very large high pressure area moving into the midwest in the next day or two. That means we'll be back to moderate temps and clear skies. YAY!

Read the sign
In at work today I got to be privy to more co-worker brainless activities. Near where my desk is located are 2 outgoing mailboxes. One is labeled Outgoing Mail: No Stamp, for mail that needs to be run through the postage meter machine before mailing, and another labeled Outgoing: Already Stamped.

So this co-worker comes by with 3-4 envelopes, already stamped. You can all see where this is going. She then puts them in one mail bin, then the other, and then picks them up one more time and turns to me...

Her: "Which one do I put these in?"
Me: "Are they stamped?"
Her: "Yes."
Me: "The one that says already stamped."
Her: "Oh, I thought that was for mail that was already sent to us here."
Me: "Uh, that's the mail that ends up in your personal mailbox right over there." As I pointed to the mailboxes all labeled with everyone's names.

M$ -> Apple
Microsoft points Mac users to Apple's site for security information. I think it's kinda funny.

Digital Table
Remember the old table Pac Man or Space Invaders from back in the 80's? You know, the arcade games you could sit down to play? I remember the one at a Pizza Hut with Pac Man on it. Now you can buy a replica version, that is an actual PC too and will do more than just games. Very slick. Would love one of these.

Speed vs. Perception
People also get peeved about what they perceive as inadequate performance. Admittedly there are professionals out there for whom time is worth real money, and therefore so is a fast computer. But most of the griping about inadequate performance comes from particularly angst-ridden folks obsessing about arbitrary, ambiguous and mostly irrelevant benchmarks they've read about somewhere. The simplest cure here, is to stop reading about those benchmarks. It's amazing how much faster your computer becomes if you stop comparing it to the fastest machine on the planet. Perhaps it's just because I'm reaching the age where my chin hairs have started to de-pigment, but I find that reminiscing on my previous computers makes this one just fly.

Sorry, it's from another "pro-Mac" site, but I just liked this part of the article a lot.

Password fun
A co-worker was having password problems logging into a certain application today. It's one that we do not have access to reset passwords here. Since the co-worker was busy with other things her manager called and got it reset. She comes to the co-worker and says, "Your new password is reset one-two. You then want to reset it once you get logged into it." The co-worker then replies, "Is that one-two like twelve?"

Yeah, if the number one immediately followed by the number two is too hard to comprehend, feel free to think of the same number combination as twelve.

Thanks mom
