I’ve been feeling like my current job doesn’t have as much opportunity for advancement as I would have liked. I like my co-workers, and I like what I do, but every once in a while everything around here gets turned upside down, and I never seem to come out any better for it, no matter what effort I put in or what successes I have.
So, I’ve been looking around to see what other opportunities might be available. I’ve got a job interview with a company in Norcross this afternoon, and a technical phone interview with a quite-well-known company on Monday. Wish me luck
Chad Vader (Darth Vader’s under-achieving brother) is the day shift manager at a local grocery store. He uses his Sith powers to help him deal with his employees, and his arch-nemesis, Clint, the night manager.
“Clarissa, I noticed your shift ends at six o’clock tonight. I would like you to meet me at Keno’s pizzaria facility to, um, discuss some plans I have for a more powerful laser checkout system… And for dinner.”

In Star Trek IV, Scotty barters the formula for transparent aluminum to a 20th century business man in exchange for materials to build a holding tank for two whales. Once again, science fiction becomes science fact. (via: Slashdot)
Welcome to the latest incarnation of the Temple of Gunters. This new version of the site is running WordPress. During the conversion, I tracked down and eliminated a ton of comment spam that had accumulated on the old site. The new site will be more resistant to comment spam.
The old site also didn’t support categories, so most articles here are currently “Uncategorized”. Hopefully that will change over time.
The theme I’m using is still in beta testing, so it might have a few kinks here and there, but it seems fairly solid so far. Just let me know if you run into any odd problems.
The next time you reach for a cold one, ask yourself this question: What could be better than beer on a stick? What, I ask you?
You think your kitten is pretty cute, right? But are you willing to put it to the test? Are you ready to let your kitten duke it out in an all-out…
This is what the Internet is all about, right?
Aardman Entertainment, which produced the exceedingly funny Wallace and Gromit films as well as Chicken Run, has hired John Cleese to help write their next film.
“It will be great comedy adventure about a pre-historic culture clash between two tribes, one comparatively evolved tribe, and one un-evolved tribe,” [Aardman co-founder Peter Lord] said.
“Some might consider one tribe might be the English, and some might consider that the other to be the French, the Gauls.
“Let’s just say it’s the start of the Entente Cordial and it explains why the English Channel is there.”
The Wallace and Gromit feature film, Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, is due out this fall. Yay! But there’s not a lot of information available yet. BTW, this seems to be a re-naming from the original title of “The Great Vegetable Plot”.
With the release of Episode III just a few weeks away, Star Wars mania is in full swing.

LUKE: Look at him. He’s heading for that small moon.
HAN: I think I can get him before he gets there… he’s almost in range.
BEN: That’s no moon! It’s a space station.
HAN: It’s too big to be a space station.
LUKE: I have a very bad feeling about this!
