I commute to work on a two lane mountain road that has a speed limit of 55 mph. Pretty much the entire road can be safely driven at 50 to 55 mph in most any commuter vehicle. There are plenty of places to pull off and allow faster traffic to pass. There are numerous signs that tell you to pull off and let faster traffic pass.

It never fails, there is always some asshat who is afraid of a nice twisty road and will cruise along at 30 or 35 mph (sometimes less) without pulling off.  I would like a button that allows me to nuke these people :mad: :mad:.

We have soooo many that are always out for something using FMLA or some other way to not show up for work while still saving all of their vacation time and cashing in their sick time at the end of the year.

Winter. This is my 53rd, and I'm all set. Seen it, done it, froze it off. Pretty and all that, but I would now prefer to look at it on my laptop than out my window.
Looking forward to being an ornery, crusty, curmudgeonly old-snowbird.

Really, not much.

Though I'll admit, some days, it takes an effort to remain cheerful . . . on those days, I sing along with Ian Dury and the Blockheads.
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

OH, Fucking Rants you want!!!

Fucking engineering and development. These idiot engineers and developers have absolutely no idea how things work in Production and appear to not care either.

They design a new system but don't check to make sure everything works before pushing out to Production. So we get the systems and low and behold, remote access craps out 50% of the time. And they don't know how to recover. And the solution Engineering *spit* provided isn't the same company as the software provider because some third party bought telecom hardware and software from two vendors and _they_ "support" it. The system uses SD cards as emergency recovery devices. Humorously the recovery program from Intel located on the special SD card doesn't work with the fucking OS on the SD card. So I had to chase down the correct version and copy it to all the SD cards so we could recover if necessary. When we let the "support" company know, they were surprised that the recovery program doesn't work with the supplied SD card OS. And if you kickstart a system with the SD card inserted, the kickstart overwrites the SD card and doesn't go to the hard drive. And in checking the Mirroring of the drives (pull drive to simulate a failure, insert drive to test recovery), I found out there's a special driver that needs to be in the OS or mirroring fails and corrupts the system.

And when Redhat 6 changes the default routing features so inbound traffic _must_ go out the same interface or it's just dropped (Redhat 5 lets inbound traffic go back out any valid interface by default), Engineering comes back with, "you need to make sure we can access all interfaces on a system and not play around with the rules". Fuck you and you're "playing around" moronic comment. It's a Redhat 6 feature. Not something I was doing in my spare time to fuck with Engineering *spit*.

And we get automatic distribution scripts for a tool that we're required to use for speedy deployments (agile *spit*) however the SQA environment doesn't match production so the security we have in place in Production causes the scripts to break throwing the project back a week while we wave our dicks at each other calling the other team names. It'd be nice if the two environments matched configuration wise so such things break at the beginning of the process and not at the end when we're on deadline.

Unfortunately our Lab sysadmin, who manages 1,500 systems from Windows to the Virtualization tool to Unix to Networking and puts in 80 to 90 hours a week because they won't hire a second admin finally collapsed on New Years Day. Two weeks later he's just come out of a coma and they turned the lab environment over to me. Fortunately the powers that be broke up the environment so the Windows servers went to the Windows admins, Virtualization went to the Virtualization team, and networking went to the Networking team. So I'm handling around 500 Unix servers. Silly me, I log in to the first one and there are no fucking named accounts! All the idiot developers and engineers use a single account which has root access so there's no accountability. In the first 7 servers I've assimilated into Production control, I've found two of them so broken that I had to send out a general e-mail to Dev/Engineering to try and identify the owner to clean them up. Both haven't been accessed since September of last year.

I'm seriously psyched to be the lead admin in bringing the lab under our control. But it's going to be a tough change for Dev/Engineering.

That's just top of my head, what I'm annoyed about right now. Don't get me started on the Manager who came to my Project Manager and asked if there were any "smart people in operations" since apparently if you're "smart", you'll move to Engineering *spit* and only the "stupid" people stay in Operations.

Fuck you too, moron.

Let's see...in just plain ol' life in general and not in any particular order...

1. Litterbugs. If it were legal to kill someone for littering, I'd have a body count racked up to rival the Reverend Jim Jones.
2. Inconsiderate smokers. Stop flinging your butts out on the road. And see #1 above while your at it. Keep that shit to yourself/your car/your house.
3. V-Twin riding asswipes with straight pipes...at 5am. Yeah we get it. Your a real badass...
4. Slob hunters....assholes who shoot at birds out of range, hunt from the road and are too lazy to stalk the game or hike into an area. You make the rest of us look bad.
5. Bad customer service. Bike dealership, cable company, fucking dishwasher repair shop...whatever. Don't want my business?? Fuck you, and I'll take my money elsewhere.
     (Take note Lasher Dodge, Elk Grove, CA. Your service department sucks donkey balls. And that's why we're no longer a customer.) 
6. Tailgaters. I'd like to kill them as well.
7. The lack of proper play clock management by Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers....
      FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKKKKKKK....the clock is RUNNING guys. Oh goodie...use ANOTHER timeout because you couldn't get the play to Kap in under 40 fucking seconds.
8. The local intersection of South Land Park Drive, Del Rio Road, and Sutterville Road. The left turn lights NEVER turn green for a bike. Ever.

Now as far as work is concerned....

1. Application developers who submit last minute work requests on Friday for some bullshit updates on Saturday night. And they've known about the updates a month in advance.
2. Application developers who CANNOT COMMUNICATE CLEARLY IN GODDAMN FREAKING BASIC ENGLISH.
3. Anyone who fails to realize that Office has a wonderful invention called the speelcheker...otherwise known as a spellchecker.
4. The software updates that are pushed to our company laptops damn near every week and end up screwing SOMETHING up. Every time.
5. Microsoft Windows.
With enough thrust, a pig flies just fine.

 Actually there isn't much that "pisses me off" anymore, but this would be near the top of the list if I wasn't so used to it. It's SOP for drivers in Malibu especially when they see a large vehicle in front of them.

 Rant for today: people that come up to the flagging operation, and expect to just drive right through. There's a good reason I'm standing out in the road with stop sign dumbass. Just ask the dumbass on the GSXR that blew past the flagman, and ran into the loader in a blind curve at 40 MPH.

 Loader: bent the steps. They are pretty stout.

 Bike: totaled. Wouldn't even roll after we dragged it out from under the loader.

 Rider: broken leg, and numerous minor injuries. Dude works for the local ambulance service, and was riding in jeans/sneakers.

Ever since we bought this fridge back in May, it's pissed me off every time I see it. The "Ice Type" button lets you choose between cube, crush and water. WATER IS NOT A TYPE OF ICE, DAMN IT.

Yes it is. It's melted ice. Ice that has undergone a phase change.

Layoffs.

OK, NOW I'm getting pissed . . . . .


yeah, me too.
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

So, you are saying the fridge freezes the water first, then melts it to make the water? I think not. This is a serious problem, don't make light of it.

Here's my 2 cents worth.

I travel, a lot, like 3-4K per month.

A lot of the major cities in Texas have 3 lane areas where its NO TRUCKS IN LEFT LANE.

Sure it is, if they want to, they just come on over and stay as long as they like.

Rant over, I'm home now and unwinding.

C'mon now... is cutting someone off really grounds for getting shot?

Whiny people.
