So I suppose at some point I'll actually get decent at this.
The work here that I'm part of at Helix is coming along
nicely; it's going to be a nice product. (Intentionally
vague comment ;-) Side note: grip is so damn cool. Making
mp3's has never been easier.
It's 3am again, I get a full night's sleep every other
night, and that's okay, I guess. Nat "Suck" Friedman decided
that it would probably be a good idea if we nuked Quake off
people's computers, but then just went down to not playing
and especially not dragging him into any Quake games. That's
fair enough. He can't seem to resist. :-)
My latest online shopping screwup: I order a camera from
mpsuperstore.com. They have a great price. I ordered on
monday night, took overnight shipping, expected it here
wednesday morning. Wednesday afternoon, no camera. I call
them. They say, "Oh, did you order on Monday?" "Yes." "Our
oder download was corrupted on Monday, we lost all the
orders for that day, we're really sorry. I can connect you
to a sales associate and you can place your order again." I
said OK, since she was being nice and polite. Anyways, I
place the order, and I have it firmly in my mind that I will
get them to ship it overnight, and I will NOT pay for it.
So, I'm talking to the guy, he asks me if I want the 5yr
warranty for like $350, I say no, we keep going, and get to
shipping. I tell him again what happened, and ask him to get
me overnight shipping and waive the shipping charges. He
checks with manager. Manager says no, but they will give me
the warranty for like $280. I tell him I'll take the
warranty if they give it to me for $200. He checks with
manager, manager says yes.
So, the events went kind of like this: I order camera on
monday for delivery on wednesday, just the camera, still
$100 shipping (+insurance). On wednesday I discover order
was lost. I order again. I still pay $100 shipping. Plus I
pay $200 in warranty. I'm still trying to convince myself I
didn't get raped.
Okay, that's it for now.. we'll see if anything else
