have been having issues with my blackberry bold… it has been my favorite in my 8+ years using blackberrys, but in the past month, i have had 3 replacements.

att even sent a replacement with a cracked screen…

what a pain cause it is on BES and all the apps and restore

maybe time to upgrade to the blackberry bold2 9700 onyx .. and what is with all the numbers and different names… that has been a weird change too

i just want phone to work and my emails…

ok… first.. mcDo has a site called i-am-asian.com which targets .. um.. asians… and now bk is going for that too…

they launched the simpsonizeme.com site in cross promotion with the .. it only took like 20 years for the the movie to come out.. the simpsons movie.

well… they have a avatar/picture generator that takes your picture… and makes you look like a simpsons character…

but i refuse… i am offended… cause it says to ‘be yellow’

come on!!! what about all of us asians that are already yellow… how do you get a sense of escapism and get a caricature done… when the outcome is gonna look just like how we look anyway…. ppfffftt@!

how about an option to.. be black.. or be white for a change… give us a chance to look like you whitey…

maybe give us a free whopper for already being yellow… jerks

get yellow

(pun alert)*

saw a promo for the next season of ‘dancing with the stars’ and they had heather mills on there…

what part of being _married_ to paul mccartney and trying to grab half* makes her a star

what makes a star is the question then….

pro athletes? check
actors? check
singers? checks
gold digger with one leg? not so much.. unless anna nicole smith was the trend setter for arm candy that wants 1/2 billion dollars… famous maybe.. infamous definately.. nasty divorce… but star?  not so much

i have nothing against one legged or those with prosthetics as a friend is a tremendous adopter of 3 korean babies and able to keep up better than this gimp along ever will…

i just can’t wait for her to try doing something like the splits…. wait.. is that cheating? she only has to do 50%. or the tango or something… instead of a rose.. does her partner clench a leg? the sock hop? hip-hop? stomp? deranged hokie-pokie.. you put your left leg in… *

will she make it to the final leg of the show?***

i was on the blue team this weekend and cak was pinch singer… and dan this was the first time that i was on with dan since his return from brazil.. married no less.  i really enjoy singing with dan and cak…

so.. we were on saturday evening… and at nhcc.. we are in the ‘heros’ series and we were talking about letting God be the center. how we clutter it up sometimes…

during the final set… we got through ‘give me jesus’ and during ‘be the centre’ … cak was singing … be my source, be my light... and bam… the lights went out.. the emergency lights came on and illuminated the cross over on the right hand side of the worship center.  the rest of the lights struggled to come on.. and then out again…

one of the spookiest, weirdest moments ever…

well.. we finished the song…  and the next song happened to be ‘when the music fades’ … so dan and kept playing acoustic and we gathered the congregation up at the front of the stage.. we sat down on that platform… and had church old school style… no lights, no electricity, nothing to clutter the time… just letting the voices rise up.

awesome time.

the new daylight savings time change is killing me…. dst 2007 sucks

i have 60+ servers that need to be patched on both the operating system level as well as multiple patches for application levels … all so that we can save some energy or some bogus reason

it would be simple if they were all the same kinds of machines… but i have solaris 8/9, windows 2003/xp, redhat 7/9, centos 3, centos 4, fedora 6, freebsd and also java jdk for all the developers… and some of the old old old machines don’t have support or patches… so having to roll my own.  i think there are patches for ipods and blackberry as well… anything with internal time keeping mechanism

the stupid thing is.. you have to reboot the machines for this change… but that makes me sad… i have machines that i have not had to reboot for over 1.5 years… almost 600 days of uptime… and i have to reboot for a stupid daylight savings thing…i actually have one server that has not been rebooted for over 3 years..

9:49pm up 1241 day(s), 5:29, 0 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.01

congress needs to ask the sysadmins before they pass things like this… cause.. reboots can be very stressful… never know if the server will come back up properly..

this daylight savings time thing has cost me 5 days of planning and coordinating reboots during off peak hours… endless meetings about trying to write code that will capture the proper 2nd sunday of march and first sunday of november.. and having to argue that we need to set a code to march 6th or march 7th so that if march 1st was a sunday.. then the next sunday would be march 8th… or just setting absolute dates and then having to remember to change them next year..

time to reboot some more boxes… fingers crossed

this is more cause of my stint in pharmacy … actually… it bugs me in everyday life.. pronunciation of words/names/drugs

we used to make fun of all of the refill requests that were left at university hospital… people not even coming close to the real name of the medication…

there were recently a couple of crime/legal shows i watch(boston legal, law and order:svu and csi:ny) that tackled the use of propranolol — for preventing short term memory from being imprinted… and using it for post traumatic stress disorder… it is actually a beta blocker and generally used for cardiac issues… but i have been on it before for migraines … either way… they both said it different…. and csi: ny had it wrong

it was the classic case of putting the eeem-faa-cess on the wrong see-la-bul

propranolol – should sound like [proh-pran-uh-lawl, -lol] instead… they kept saying [pro-pran-ol-lull] putting emphases on pro- instead of -pran-

made me mad toward the end of the show….

another is a radio plug for tinitis.. and the guy saying [tin-it-tuss] instead of [tin-ite-tis] … it is still ringing in my head

finally.. my wifes name is mimi… classic french name… sounds like [mee-mee] …. but we actually were at mimi’s cafe… and the waitress calls out… [may-may] like some southern drawl type thing all slow… but it wasn’t… it was cause we were asian… and the girl was trying to figure out how the name would sound if you were in the far east or something… we just looked at her sad self … and i guess we just have to blame public education… cause she believes she pronounced it right… she gets a gold star in her outcome based portfolio

my kids are taking swimming classes and as part of that… they had to go get new suits

my fashion princess daughter was up and as they browsed the selection… they happened up on some 2 piece suits that were probably… no definatley not age appropriate

In one of those classic kid moments… my daughter turns to my wife and says ‘i don’t think dad would like these too much’

she ended up getting a nice 1 piece suit

i guess raising a proverbs 23rd type daughter is gonna be harder than it looks… at least she realized that i would be not so pleased with her wearing un-modest swimming suits and just clothes in general… i guess i did a decent job of putting the puritan fear into her head… either that or my scowl when she looks at things like that was a pavlovian bell that went off in her head

i look at all of the girl toys and stuff that flood the minds of these little girls and it is worse than the soft core pr0n of the 80s… bratz dolls and barbies are even more objectifiers of women… and that is the climate that i have to worry about… not the climate change al gore is spewing…

florida congressman ric keller is a dumb freak … in going for a sound bite… he is feeling the crunch of all of the smarties and people that have half a brain that are offended by his body bag comment… and his stupid lawnmower analogy was one of the worst ever

here is the whole rambling bamblin retarded look at me commit political suicide speech… watch it here

mr. speaker, the iraq war is the central issue of our time. we.re spending $2 billion a week, and losing 100 american lives a month. under these conditions, i feel i owe my constituents my best judgment.

interjecting more young american troops into the cross hairs of an iraqi civil war is simply not the right approach. if the president sends these troops anyway, i will support their funding 100% so they have the bullets and equipment they need to defend themselves.

i approach this decision with a great deal of angst and humility. i.m not trying to micromanage this war. i.m just a member of congress, not a 4 star general. but i have listened to what our most well-respected 4 star generals have to say about this matter. and generals abizaid, mccaffrey, and colin powell have all said that sending more troops into baghdad is not the answer.

now, some people will say, if you.re not in favor of surging more american troops into baghdad, what are you for?

i.m for a different kind of surge.

i.m for a surge of iraqi troops to take out al-sadr and his militia, especially since the iraqi security forces outnumber the al-sadr militia by a ratio of 5 to 1. that.s 325,000 versus 60,000.

i.m for a surge in political progress by the iraqi government to finally reach a deal on the sharing of oil revenue.

i.m for a surge of action in implementing the iraq study group recommendations, which were arrived at in a bipartisan, unanimous fashion.

i.m for a surge in gratitude among the iraqi people, 61% of whom think it.s ok to kill american troops. and 79% of iraqis have a .mostly negative. view of the united states.

some argue that we should support president bush.s decision. i like and respect president bush. i want him to succeed. three years ago, i could have voted in favor of this surge. but the situation on the ground is very different than it was three years ago.

three years ago, iraq was not in a civil war. now it is.

three years ago, iraq did not have 325,000 of its own security forces to defend itself. now it does.

three years ago, we did not know whether a surge of additional american troops into baghdad would have a long-lasting impact. now we know the answer. we tried the same thing last summer. the benefits were temporary. the body bags were permanent.

we.re told that we should trust the maliki government. i.ve been down that road before.

i personally visited baghdad last summer and met with the maliki government officials. i was told that by december of 2006, they would have all the security forces they need, and we would be in a position to start bringing home our troops. now they say give us just another year.

the maliki government told our country that their troops would be right there beside us when we surged 15,000 american troops into baghdad last summer. well, the iraqi troops didn.t show up. the benefits of the surge were only temporary.

i voted in favor of authorizing the use of force back in 2002 because i did not want saddam hussein to give weapons of mass destruction to al-qaeda. now saddam hussein is dead, and there are no weapons of mass destruction in iraq.

we have remained in iraq for 4 years because we want a unified and secure iraq so it won.t become a haven for terrorists. unfortunately, it seems that the americans want a unified and secure iraq more than the iraqis do.

let me give you an analogy. imagine that you have a next door neighbor who refuses to mow his lawn, and the weeds are up to his waist. you mow his lawn for him every single week. the neighbor never says thank you, he hates you, and sometimes he takes out a gun and shoots at you.

under these circumstances, would you keep mowing his lawn forever? would you send even more of your family members over to mow his lawn? or, would you say to him, you better start mowing your own lawn or there.s going to be serious consequences for you?

mr. speaker, sending more young american troops into the middle of iraqi civil war violence is not the answer. i will support the troops. funding 100%. but we are not going to solve an iraqi political problem with an american military solution. and that.s my best judgment.

may god bless our troops, and our country.

if i see one more special report.. adjustment in normal programming to anna nicole smith… hey.. here is a news flash… she is still dead. she used and abused meds and alcohol.. and was too selfish to take care of her 5 month old daughter

what a train wreck … too much rubber necking… and all of us are not helping .. dang it

she is not the candle in the wind that marilyn monroe was …she was not princess di … even though she seems to be getting as much or more attention than lady di

maybe it is the $450 million dollars that she may be getting… the case she won in the supreme court… she was a forerunner for probate law… at least for gold diggers… great.

now to find her missing 5 month old daughter.. who would be the sole heir for the $450 million when that is all straightened out… and if they figure out which of the 4 potential fathers is the ral one…

wouldn’t it be awesome if that old dead husband is the real father… using in vitro … that would be a fine denoument to this whole mess… a real heir to the billionaire.. case closed.

can we just get back to talking about iraq …. wait… you think george bush killed anna nicole smith … to take attention away from the war… weird….. give me my tin foil cap.

so… hmm.. ted haggard has come out (uh…) to say that he is completely straight now.. after the few weeks of intensive therapy for getting straight.

message to ted.. don’t

i am not sure if it is choice, birth, environment, combination… but ted loves dudes.. and he should just own up to it.. at least then.. he does nto hurt his family any further

the last boston legal show covered this with ssad (same sex attraction disorder) — sysad .. and a gay judge that spent $40k to get straight but still had relations with men

so what happens the next time ted goes out looking for a male hooker and meth?  everyone gonna jump on the pray for ted bandwagon again?   everyone gonna say… nah.. it was a lapse in judgement.. and he is not gay?

there is also news that he received a settlement package from new life and has to leave colorado .. again.  weird.  why?  if he is cured… then why make him leave the state?  it is not like the story is not going to come back to colorado springs.

it is ssad… um.  sad.
