Good pics
Here are some funnies

Classic adverts from the 30's.
I particularly like the "happy Lard" and "sanitised Tape-worms"

Here are the T-Shirts not to wear when you get arrested

And finally, China preparing for anti-terror ops at the Olympics. These are
not technically "funny", but the mass of armed segway riders amuses me no

My department has started a strange form of All vs All civil war

So far the weapons used have been

- Changing  the security policies on people accounts
- changing the security policies on peoples folders
- Moving peopel folders
- Changing people backgrounds / screen savers
- Disabling people accounts and moving them to obscure locations in our company AD structure
- Ajusting the targets for peoples desktop shortcuts (best so far was changing the path for firefox "shurtdown -s -f -t 00")

This is all going to end in tears

I'm on hold to one of our suppliers. One of their automated response that I
hear is that they're "*experts in the field of intelligent capture*"
I may add this line to my business cards

motivation : continued
I went around and asked some people for some help, specifically with my strengths and weakness'.
This is probably a good thing : some of the things I would have put in strengths other people declared as weakness's, and vice versa.
Still a lot to fill in, but it seems my manager has double booked himself for the meeting we were meant to have, so I'm now unsure of when (or if) we're going to go through this

On a different (but similer) note : I watched something last night that included "The (A) secret of Happines)" - I thought I'd share. I'm not  sure that this the only way, but it seems like a pretty convincing one :
"Find something more important than you are, and dedicate your life to it"
Dan Dennett

If any-one has something better, please let me know.

Current Mood: thoughtful

I'm having huge troubles with a motivation questionaire that was given to me
by my new manager.

It's got some INCREDIBLEY tricky questions, which seem to only have space
for 2 lines of answer.

OK, I know my primary motivations are going to be sex, status & survival ...
but I can't get this conveyed in any meaningful way to answer the questions
that are given.
It's possible that he doesn't want accurate answers, but wants to see what
incorrect answers I default to.

What are my functional development objectives?
What are my experience development objectives?
Waht do these things really mean, and how do they differ from each other?

Besides, my own answers are going to far too biased to be taken seriously.
I've been staring at this for about 2 hours now and haven't made any

More from Digg

It made me giggle. Slightly. On the inside.
Thought I'd  anyway

Still no actual content to post. Nothing new or interesting in my life that I want to share. Still planning on switching accounts at some point.

Flat selling
We've had the first estate agent around today to value our flat. Apparently it's worth £NotAsMuchAsI'dHoped. Arse.
Ohwell, there are another 2 agents coming to see it this week, and they may have better news. Or worse.

ION : I have new shoes! Payday yesterday so I went hunting and found nothing. Today I went to the same place with slightly lower expectations and a slightly high budget. NOW I HAS NEW SHOOOESSS!!!
