The Web2.0 World

Well most people that read blogs or write in a blog should know that they are part of the Web2.0 revolution of this user created content era. I love this kinda thing. Podcasts, Blogs, Easy to Use Technology created by users and small start ups it’s wonderful.

I found a new one today called now this is a service that lets basically claim what is yours on the internet.

So if you are a blogger or a *shudder* a myspace person you should get one of these claim your part of the internet!

Capri Pants

Have I lost my mind to write about girls pants? Not Today! So this has been an issue for a while when my girlfriend at the time would wear these as clothing. Now if you don’t know what Capri Pants are I grabbed the wiki definition. They are a pair of pants that stop mid calf on a womans leg. Now being the male and enjoy the sight of a beautiful woman these pants always set me off.

When it comes to the female form I am totally a leg man. It started back when I was a teenager when I saw Jennifer Love Hewitt in a Nutregena Commercial and she was standing there in a towel and she said keeps you clean from head to toe. Lifted up her leg and it was like boom legs. 1st Celebrity Crush.  But since then shorts and skirts and legs always seem to at least get a few seconds of glance and I try to play it off like I am some loser looking at the floor. But anyways back to the pants.

These pants are like a total tease. If I make a comment about the pants I get hit with “But they are so comfy” I am having trouble finding the comfort in this idea. I like my jeans. The wide leg jeans are always nice. But I am more of a slightly baggy jeans and tucked in black shirt with a dress shirt unbuttoned slightly type of guy with my sleeves rolled up that is comfy for me. Buf I would feel like I would need to keep pulling the legs on my pants down. But I see a woman in these pants and it’s like a leg tease. A sneak preview of a movie that looks good but I know I will never be able to see.

I was going to write this for my 3rd year of Blogging Post. But decided against it and thought I would do it tonight while I lay in bed watching X-Men 2. But anyways that is my gripe about the pants. They are like a bit of tease. Here is a little leg Tristan now you just wasted a look so move along and get back to my iPod.

On a side note this is my first post in Firefox 2.0 on the Mac. I love the built in spell check that Safari has and the bonus of Firefox.

Have a great night. Now I wonder how many of the woman will have my name cross their minds next time they put on a pair of Capri Pants.

Junniper Was Bored And Wanted a Story

A Story Eh?

Okay a story here we lets go back into the past a bit. I was 17 I got my first job. I was working at McDonalds. Since they found me to be a useful asset to the company I was pretty much doing every job in the store. I was best at working in the grill or helping the drive through. I was taking orders in the back one day. I would work my deep voice a bit for all the ladies that would grace the intercom connected to my ear.

So one morning a lady ordered a Sausage Biscuit and she came up to the drive through window and my manager walked up behind me and the woman in the car smiled at me and said “I love your voice. You made my day” My manager Sadie said “Tristan look at you picking up ladies in the drive up Window”

I always like thinking of that story makes me smile. The deep voice pays off. I had another issue like that when I was a cashier. A woman would always come up to me and ask me to check a price or page someone just so she could hear my voice boom through the store. But voice is a powerful thing it speaks to people. My voice hasn’t been so hot recently. Been a little under the weather.

So this was a post for Junniper. Haven’t really talked to you much. I hope all is well. Hope you had a Happy Birthday! We should meet up for a drink sometime.


Taco Del Mar and The Mind of Pipo

I love Taco Del Mar. I was talking to the KGB Mafia Man and I was thinking man Taco Del Mar Sounds Good. Then I said to him on MSN. “I Just want to get into my Car and Drive to Taco Del Mar” Then I thought I had to blog it so if they ever stole it I could go punch some TV commercial guy in the liver and be like take that stealing my saying.

So I have another hour left of work. I am hungry. I want to get on the ferry, get off the ferry, get on the bus, get to my car, drive my car to Taco Del Mar. Then Get

Mondo Burrito – Spinach Tortialla with Guac and Sour Cream, Refried Beans, Chicken, Cheese, Pico De Gallo, and Jabenro Sauce. mmmmmmmm Spicy Death is Good.

Anyways on the up and up. Car is fixed! I can Stop again

I am feeling much better after my fight with being sick.

I was thinking about how there is a Caps Lock day. And how May 20th is my Birthday. So I was thinking of something we don’t normally celebrate. So then I got to thinking what really bothers me.

Road Signs!

So October 23rd is Declare War on Road Signs Day. Or Go to Jail for destroying Federal Property Day. But anyways that 35MPH sign on Columbia you are going down!

Monday Please End Soon!


RTFM People

So this is something I would have to say to myself. I was speaking with Jennifer#1 on the phone this evening and she mentioned that the comment system was not working. So I was trying to figure out why. It worked with my old webhost and then I got to thinking. No hidden files were copied over to the new webserver. So I went to check out the documentation online for wordpress on what was required to get the comments to work. I guess someone had the same issue that I did so thanks to the help he was offered I was able to get the issue resolved so it’s a simple fix.

If you can comment on a DreamHost Hosted Blog that was migrated to Dreamhost. Here are the steps to fix it.

1. SSH into your address
2. CD to your Domain Name
3. vi .htaccess
4. Paste In

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/stats/(.*)$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/failed_auth.html$
RewriteRule ^.*$ – [L]

# BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php

# END WordPress

5. Esc in Vi
6. Type in :wq
7. Test Your Comment System
8. Bask in the Glory that it is working.

So when it comes to RTFM it stands for. Read the Fucking Manual. People seem to think I know everything about computers. IN all reality I do not know all that much. I just take the time to read the manual. You wouldn’t have to bitch so much about how support for Product “A” sucks if you would just read the manual.

I love when a company has a PDF for the manual that I can just load into Preview type what I am looking for and Spotlight and Preview find what I am looking for and I can get back to working along. I don’t mind the call from a friend. How do I get “A” to work? Spoil Me a Bit get me some Spring Rolls from Chungs and I am yours for the help.

But if I get a phone call from a friend with something like “My Work Blocked MySpace how do I get around it I need to do this in a hurry.” with no casual chat or witty banter and I can call you a fool for using MySpace in the first place well then I am not really going to help you with your issue. You are just trying to use me and I will get off the phone with something like “I don’t know anything about computers. Best of luck to you in your issue” But take some time people. Read the manual or I will poke fun at you because you choose the lazy route and called me.

I am not a big fan of asking for help all the time. So I try to exhaust every other resource possible before doing so. That is how I know what I know and do what I do. So pardon me for not having so much sympathy if you choose not to do the same.

Cheers to the week starting over. Love to those who need it. Hugs to the Rest. Lets hope this week passes by with as little stress as possible. If you downloaded Internet Explorer 7 do yourself a favor uninstall it. Get Firefox your life will be a lot easier and you will be much safer online. Or just get a Mac and life will be perfect.


The Guide to Blogging

I love this. I was going to use it as an Intro to a Podcast. I have put the text up before. But here is the actual file. This was on the old blog so this is basically a repost. But that link is no longer valid and just thought I would bring it back for a good old chuckle for everyone.

Is my Ego really that big? =p

Fixed The Error

Okay now we are on the new webserver. Latest Version of the Database. All the Posts since Friday are here!

Anyways it was an error on my part the default database was reading the first test import. So I had to do a rewrite on some nerdy stuff most people will not care about. But anyways.

Welcome and Read Away.

Some Geek Humor for the Day and Road Rage

I saw this one on a comment and I loved it.

“She is one match co-processor shy of a 486”

I was in stitches for a good minute about that one. People around the office enjoyed and we have a new slang at work.

In other geek humor I found this link via Digg about HTTP Error Messages and Relating them to Women.

header(“HTTP/1.0 402 Payment Required“);
“I’m from Craigslist.”

That was a good one. Having seen some interesting ones from the world of CL. My other favorite one was

header(“HTTP/1.0 306 (Unused)“);
“I’m a virgin.”

Now I had a good laugh on this matter. So turned out to be a rather funny morning today. I got a Skype Voicemail this morning from a women in China saying how we should get married. She wants to practice her english and get married. Not being a master of my own native tongue and thinking getting married. I decided she was not the woman for me and had a chuckle.

But this being a hump day people are at an all time odd level today. My bus was way early and I saw it driving over the bridge as I pulled up so I had to deal with traffic today.

I really have no idea why people in Seattle are the dumbest drivers on the planet. I was driving down the freeway. 4 lanes going I-5 North. You have the carpoolers in their lane. I should really get a doll or something to go in my passenger seat. But anyways you have the far left lane which is the moron lane. You get these idiots who cannot drive worth a shit afraid of all the other traffic around them. They are usually people going a long distance who want to drive slow and afraid to merge.

The Left Middle Lane is usually the less stupid people who actually know how to drive and are smart enough to stay out of the mama and papa lane. But because of the far left lane people needing to drive slow getting to an exit they should have thought about earlier this lane also slows down and causes me to be in the car yelling “What the FUCK!?”.

The Right Middle lane is usually reserved for those who are stuck there because the Middle Left Lane is full of the people merging from the Idiot Left Lane and the Middle Left Lane tends to get rather full so everyone in the Middle Right Lane managed to get out of the merging lane but to many cars prevent them from getting any further left. You have a brave soul on occasion who tries to get over and the stops and slows everyone else down because the other lane was hardly moving either causing a slowdown because this person wants to feel like they have Big Balls.

Thank you I’m To Fucking Stupid to be Content with Where I am I need to be in the farther left lane so I can fuck everyone else up. Today the brave soul was this brain child in a White Van from Oregon. He couldn’t decide what lane was good enough for him so he stopped traffic from his dealings on the freeway 4 times.

I don’t know much about Oregon drivers. But I have driven to Portland and Portland is like a maze of roads. I am sure they would be the only city with a Dead End One Way Street. Seattle is bad we can’t even make a straight road. But Oregon things don’t make any sense. It’s like the person who designed all the roads made spaghatti one night and decided that would be a perfect road system. Seattle just likes to build stuff so close to the water it floods. We got smarter and built a city on top of that city and charge toursists a great deal of money to go under the city to see some rotted wood. If it gets the economy moving great. But give me a fucking break.

So back to the road. We have the right lane on the freeway. You drive in this lane if you have a lot of time on your hands. Because people in general are afraid to merge. If I am in this lane I leave a good 4 car lengths in front of me. Because this seems to be the convert level for these idiots. I would rather just give it to them so that they can just get on the freeway and not try and pull something and be a hero to the rest of the merging people that they got through. Have some respect and let people merge.

But if you are in this lane people are trying to merge at you from both sides at the same time frequently. Which never is a good thing. Merge is this idea or a theory perhaps in Washington that nobody seems to want anyone to do. People have this pride issue of letting someone cut in line. I could honestly give a fuck we are all there for a mutual goal to get somewhere.
But don’t ever drive a good deal of distance because the right lane will become an exit only lane and you will be forced to exit if you cannot merge which is probably why you are in this lane to begin with. Grow some balls and learn how to fucking drive.

The only decent driving experience you can have in Seattle. Is when you drive in the late evening when everyone is home doing what people do at home. I will talk about parking and all that joy in a future post. Seattle is the only city I know that taxes themselves to build a monorail. Decideds to cancel the project. Tax themseleves again to pay for the advertising of the monorail they decided not to build. Then a private company takes over the monorail project but still tax everyone for the monorail.

I love this town but give me a fucking break. You can’t drink in a strip club or be within 4 or 6 feet of a stripper. That came into pass when we got a female governor. I voted for her because she was a democrat. I would have much rather had a libertarian. I miss Gary Locke he was a cool Asian dude in my book. Not that I could enjoy a stripper when he was in power but at least he was sane.

Happy Hump Day.
