On Call Again

The pager went off at 2 am. I am on hold waiting for the engineers of two other companies to figure out the issue while I monitor our servers so I can tell them when it is fixed. It is now 4:25 am.


While I'm waiting, I found this gem:

From: sscherme@adelphia.net (Skid/Jos)
Newsgroups: rec.humor.funny

There have been an average of 160,000 troops in theater (IRAQ) during the
last 22 months, which has a firearm death rate of *60* per *100,000*.

The rate in Washington D.C. is *80.6* per *100,000*.

That means that you are 25% more likely to be shot and killed in our Nation's
Capitol, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation,
than you are in Iraq.

*Conclusion*: We should immediately pull out of Washington, D.C.

And now for the scary part. The cable company I'm on hold for is the same one this fellow's email account is with.


Just for grins I signed up for OKCupid yesterday and answered about 40 of their 37,685 personality questions. This morning email arrived, click on the link to get your matches.

The closest match was japlady. http://okcupid.com/profile?tuid=481535432495443574

We met BayCon before last at farmount's room party. I was very attracted to her, but It took maybe 6 nanoseconds to get the message that the feeling was not mutual.

So much for the OKCupid matching algorithm.
