Good morning D-land and faithful readers…all 2 of you (hehe).
Work has taken another interesting turn. This whole internet usage thing is really starting to get on my nerves. Today I received (along with the rest of the company) an e-mail detailing yet another control measure to keep us the workers for using the internet. This new measure will require us to navigate through a log in screen EVERY time we open Explorer. Thus allowing big brother (AKA the Network Mgr with the God Complex) to more accurately track our internet usage. Doesn’t management see that by piling on more and more restrictions…treating us more and more like children…punishing the whole for the acts of a few, that morale will go down and frustration and unrest will go up? I just don’t get it.
Take me for example. I check CNN several times a day…takes me 2 min tops to get the headline news…Is Arafat dead? Where are we in the war? Has Bush lost his binky? But since that is not considered work related…I cannot access that site now. I mean really…WTF? The company cannot give me a few minutes a day to check things online…but they can give our smokers (and yeah I got petty and started timing this) a FUCKING hour and a half every day to stand around outside in a non-work related function. This is starting to annoy me something fierce.
Yeah yeah…I know. I chose to work here…and if I don’t like it, I can fuckin leave. Sigh…
In other news…
Halo 2 Rocks…Oh man oh man is this game sweet! New guns…better environments…more vehicles…AND you play one of the covenant as part of the main campaign. Master Sergeant. Now I do have to say that I have gotten lost a few times on the boards. That is frustrating…but not so much that it makes the game suck…AND I am not sure how much I like this dual wield option. I am a Big fan of the grenade and of course when you have 2 guns in you hands you can’t chuck grenades. Ahh but anyhow…I don’t want to tell ya too much about it. It is worth checking out though. If you liked the first one…I am pretty sure that you will like this one as well.
Oh and this just in…Looks like I am Baltimore Bound again soon. Perhaps as early as the end of next week…Sigh…and there is talk that they may need to cut in to the Thanksgiving holiday. Not happy about that…but whatcha gonna do? I’m back to the if you don’t like it leave statement from earlier again. Ugh…
