Pure Donkey Balls...Thoughts on the tracker...big brother is watching you

Okay yeah I'm going to wear my new mantra out but damn yesterday was awful and the rest of the work year isn't looking any better. It all started with the fact that my company layed off the entire network operations staff or our sister center and gave us ALL of the work, but not before laying off a few people here. So in a nutshell they more than doubled our work load and cut our local headcount as well. As of this writing there is nothing on the books in terms of relief anytime soon and frankly my hours, already insane, are going to get worse and worse. Yeah...I'm soooooo outta this place as soon as I can be.

My current thoughts on the tracker may seem a little funny here but you know what? Every since those morons got there own forum and you can delete the forum I don't ever see them post anywhere else!! It's almost a prison the webmaster created to trap them in their own sex filled, immature play room and gave us the option to lock it behind us and not have to see it. In many ways maybe it was his intention after all, but honestly after putting an hour glass on the usual offenders I noticed most of them haven't left that room since it was started. Good riddance!! Maybe it was a good idea after all. Lead them away from the forum with their own sex room and all of a sudden it's problem solved once you get rid of the forum. I still think there is a problem with the discussion threads still showing up in the top threads but hopefully that will get fixed.

Lastly I've installed Site Meter on this damn thing which has some interesting stats in who is viewing my site, where they are located (or at least thier hopoff router is located) and where they came from. Interesting stuff. It gives you a full view of the world and lets you know where everyone was visiting from and so far it's Canada, England and the good old USA...this is pretty interesting stuff. If you don't have it try it out at www.sitemeter.com

Don't you just love the corporate world? Get this..today I was told to "be careful what I say." Uh? My boss proceeded to tell me that I shouldn't tell people that we're about caught up. Since when is getting caught up a bad thing? Oh, I get it....caught up means we don't need as many people that we have so the goal here is to stay far behind to secure your freakin job! And here I thought we were doing good because it is allowing us to have time to go out and look for more $$$ to recoup. We found an extra 4 million dollars in 2005. Didn't we earn our keep yet? Ok...sorry. Didn't mean to overtake your blog! You got me riled up now! Hope you guys get help soon somehow!

(donkeyballs - are we still using the password?) I like your analogy about their own little place that they are stuck in - like the Superman movie where the bad guys were exiled to the two dimentional world. Remember the horrified look on their faces? I am sorry to hear about your work dissatisfaction. I know how hard that can be. I trust something will improve soon. It always does for me in the Spring. Take care!

Good luck with work. I kinda have the same problem. Got the skills but not the opportunity to use them the way I'd like.

ewwwwww! I added site meter and was checking out the referals of some people who came to my site -- at least one (i think 2?) came to me through searches for bubblebutt+girls... which essentially brings up porn! But wtf, they still spent time reading my site. I say again, ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Jeremy? Did those people receive a severance package of any sort? If you can at all strike a deal and volunteer for a layoff, get a package now, you'll be securing your future. Why? Because the next layoff will have less of a package or none. Its the way its done. Good luck with it.

Carol...wasn't that you with Jenna James in Under the Sheets? ;-)

Jeremy, not good about your work situation. GET OUT!

If I was spending Qi on Tracker I would say that I agree with you. They seem to be burning themselves out.

Sorry to hear you are having such a rotten time at work. There is something better out there for you!

So I decided to try out that site meter...Have to keep up with the Havlows :) That thing is some freaky weird chit. It even gives IP addresses. Big Brother truly is watching!!

Hey...one more thing...Can you explain to me why I show up as being from Prince Edward Island??? I've heard it's a beautiful province...but I've never been there. Although it does make me sound a bit more exotic than being from British Columbia.

Signed...the mysterious visitor from Surrey, PEI
