I'm sorry but Fox News and truth do not go together. I can't trust a news source that goes to court over its right to lie and wins =/

Use Your iPhone To Get Out of a Ticket

f0rtytw0 Re:Parking tickets (291 comments)

In Boston property owners can be ticketed for not clearing their part of the sidewalk of snow. The ticket writing system is electronic that includes a digital picture that is time stamped, and a smaller version is printed out on the ticket. I think something similar should be done for parking infractions but then again that makes it more difficult to write bogus tickets.

Here I am still here at the lab. I probably just blend in here now. A new job would be nice, perhaps I'll find one soon. =/

Still working at the same place. I just wrote some stuff in java which was nice after using MFC for so long. I hate MFC. I am really bored right now. I miss Lyssa at the moment too. It has been a while since I wrote anything here. I just got over a sickness, some horrible space virus or something. Did I mention I am currently listening to The Killers and that it is snowing out or at least it was. Welp back to work I guess.

I miss school. I miss the college life. There were always so many interesting things going on and lots of other like minded people.

Sometimes I think I slack off too much at work but then I suddenly get an idea that fixes a problem with some code that I've been writing and everything is good. Currently I'm waiting for one of those moments... well actually I researching the problem. Oh well back to work.

She is so wonderful and thoughtful and just all around great (plus she's hot ;)). She inspires me to work hard and better myself. I hope I'm with her for a long time.

Having someone who you can just talk to is great. Someone beautiful that can also take away all of your insecurities and make you feel all warm and happy inside. =)

relationships are quite the learning experience for me.. i learn a lot about myself and i think i'm getting better at them.
Last week was great. Sure I've been to Arizona tons of times and I've seen lots of stuff but when someone who has never ever been out west before and they come with you its super. It was like I was seeing it all again for the first time and it was great. Cactusses (Cacti) became interesting and new again instead of just blending into the background oooo and the mountains =)
Today was a good day =)

I got a webcam... yay! Man am I ever boring. The sun is now on the network and we need to get the mac to talk. LLMoo hung him/herself yesterday... it was sad.
Obituary:
It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you all of the passing of an
important member of the Lincoln Laboratory community. It seems like only
days ago LLMoo came into our world (well, it actually was only days ago) and
seated her hooves firmly into our hearts. With her natural bovine good
looks and health-conscious message of the dangers of beef consumption she
soon became an irreplacable member of B167C. She endured good times and bad
times; she saw the joy of OSX Retrospect backup victories and the horror of
Sanders facial growth experimentations. She celebrated the good times and
the bad and was always nearby to offer comedic tension or give us the answer
as to what we wanted for lunch.

We all knew things hadn't been the same as of late, but no one could
predicted it would of ended like this. Indeed were all in a state of shock
right now and can only ask of ourselves what we could of done, what we could
of said and what do we really want for lunch. But the truth is that there
are no right answers to these questions but it is the struggle to get to
them that yields the rewards of life.

In closing I feel the best summary could only be given by the deceased; it
is these words that I hope we can all find inner peace and we can all make
this a place which LLMoo would of wanted it to be. Look deep into your
souls and hearts and remember this: "Eat Mor Chikin".

i'm slowly starting to use more and more free software simply because it works and works well. i also like the better sense of security i have when using such software knowing that security holes are fixed as fast as possible. it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. lesson learned too much beer is unhappy at work the next day
