Back to pounding the internet highway

But right now, I'm at work.

Twitter is being twitterpaited and I can't maintain a connection. Of course, that could be an internal thing as they are jostling things about with out servers in preparation to shut the VBC site down. Who the hell knows.

I'm getting 2 cases an hour done right now. My give a damn is busted.

I'm clearly not alone - half the people here are in tech issues or run time error system disconnect or whatever. Cleaning out desks. playing farm town on Facebook. Holy crap, everyone is playing farm town, WTF? Even my team lead. It's pretty hysterical.

I brought Rodney to work with me. He's pretty popular.

It's weird - there is such a sense of anticipation and excitement here, even though we're all losing our jobs - we've had a chance to get used to the idea, so it's not so scary as it was.

I still have no job to go to, but I've got some severance coming, I can go on UI if I have to. I'll be okay for at least a couple months before I have to worry about rent.

Today we try to work - but tomorrow, we party!

That I find funny, because people here are manic about it. Timing when they harvest things. Booting me off the computer to do it. Get lives!

No shit! It's bizarre! People are crazy about it, trading things and trying to get other people to work for them... dude. I *lived* on a farm. I have no interest in *playing* an online GAME about it.

I know! Kid says to me "I'm learning all sorts of things -- like did you know that rice was grown in water?"

Dude, seriously. Yes, and bananas are herb plants with spiders, rats and snakes hiding in them; dates are horrible to work with and don't eat too many unripe ones; cows are temperamental but will follow you forever; pigs are intelligent and aren't going to fall for the same crap as cows...

CNN was reporting that Twitter got hacked this morning. That might be part of the reason why you couldn't keep a connection to it.
