My workplace's intranet has comments and voting on articles allowed. If you clear your cache you can vote again. Voting is between 1-5 and what infuriates me is it seems to round up. So no hope in hell of an article ever being rated below 2 as the submitter or whoever/whatever it is about normally votes 5 on it straight away.

Just re-read my lastest app, and despite almost never touching HCs I feel like a gigantic badass with the shit I've pulled in all these years...

I think I might get attention with this one (whisp me if you're curious :-p)
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

On our intranet, we had some putz attempt to rig a vote by voting 6000 times.. in a company with ~3750 employees.. like we wouldn't notice.. :roll:

I enjoyed turning him over to the security team.. :D

Being a tech geek I am amused at the tech nerd fallout over the Moto X. After being hyped as the first Google Motorolla phone with Google showing others how it should be done it is nothing more than a midrange Android phone with typical carrier subsidized pricing and lockin.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

There was so many rumors flying in from all over the place, especially with some incredibly unrealistic expectations about price ($200 unlocked? Seriously?) that the nerdrage was bound to happen.

It also didn't help that Motorola was insisting that there was some sort of incredible, unleaked, unsuspected feature that would blow everyone away.

Just got an email from Blizzard confirming my latest couple of transfers and saying my chars are finally ready to play.

Why amusement? Cause said transfers got done in July a couple weeks ago.

We've probably talked about this before but nothing amuses me more in this game than people who spend 45 seconds on an app.

"Why do you want to join the guild: To raid" WELL HOLY SHIT LETS SIGN THIS GUY UP SOUNDS LIKE HE ALMOST WANTS IT MORE THAN WE DO.

I don't understand why people think if they're going to spend all of 2 minutes filling out the app that it's going to present themselves as anything other than lazy.

45 seconds? That's a record, actually. While I was GM, I tried to use an application for new recruits, and I swear most of them spent maybe 13 seconds. It was like they copy pasted "for fun/raiding/pvp" into every field then hit submit.

I gave up (and gave up GMship happily too).

Edit: In other news, my roommate was recently promoted. He now is of the same position as me (albeit in a different department). So he is currently doing training and review on auto policies, and every so often will ask me a question or tell me what the module told him. We had a vigorous debate the other day about the definition of a particular vehicle and when it applies. I was all, "I have 5 years experience in this." And in his corner was, "but the module said this!" And in my corner was, "read the policy." Then out of his corner came, "ok, you were right."
