Bio: UPDATED 6-16-2005
I was born in a small town, but then moved to a big city (Colorado Springs) when I was just a wee one. Returned to a small town (not my birth town) when I was in the 5th grade, and lived there until I was 21, then moved to a big city (Ogden, UT), where I lived until 6-1-2005 at which time I moved to Pocatello, ID. Things didn't work out in Pocatello, so before Thanksgiving I was back in Utah.
Vitals: 6'2", 300lbs (I carry it well, as they say), red hair, eyes that never did pick a color to stick with, they're "officially" "hazel".
Recent bit of wisdom I want to immortalize here (re teachers):
"There are three kinds of teachers:
Those who can (whether or not they choose to).
Those who could but for some personal limitation (but are well-versed in the subject at hand).
And those that can't, and think that they know of which they teach when in actuality they do not.
Sadly, while the third type is the minority, they get the majority of the attention leaving the competent majority with the undeserved reputation of being less than knowledgeable or skilled in the subject matter because they teach it instead of doing it.
And you can quote me on that.
Write on my Whiteboard, it will get posted and e-mailed to me.

No, though that used to be one of my duties it wasn't the entirety of my job. I was also an in-shop technician. At times I was the sole technician for the very small company I worked for - even to the point of being the only one in the office some days! -OgdenTechGuy
Those guys are doing a Hell of a Job in a Climate that might as well be Hell (I lived near there for a while). They deserve all the Thanks and Support we can give them. Damn - Kuwait Desert in the Summer -satanstech

I can void anything and re-ring it. The problem is that he insisted he didn't need to tell me he had a refill. He says we're supposed to know that without being told. There's only other that has done that. He too insists that he doesn't need to say anything. He says it's my job to know it's a refill. He also refused to ever tell us when it's a refill and when it isn't. I'm not playing that game. -clockkingfl

We should be able to do better than that - what's yer setup? -satanstech
Microsoft Bob? Well... I was at a pre-launch of Outlook back in '96, where they mentioned that Clippit was the only surviving remnant of Bob. If you can imagine a wrapper around Windows that was as obsequious, as invasive, and as obnoxious as Clippit, but applied to the entire user interface... that was Microsoft Bob. -chazz
