The current documentation system is dysfunctional; the system does not contain major categories that should be included. Therefore, resolving system issues has relied upon institutional knowledge for far too long. Recording the environment, tasks, and procedures for reference provides more efficient time use, staff member cross-operational coverage and complies with some of our ISO-9002 requirements.
The fact that the ###### group currently runs under preposterous conditions is possibly attributable to previous contracts. However, following current perceived convention as comfortable; yet if that activity is erroneous, our responsibility is to correct it.
##### has directed me, to accomplish this task as an important component of the overall infrastructure plan. ####### will not continue to function in this manner, nor can we proceed with an efficient Windows systems migration without a comprehensive documentation set.
Although in the past the functions between ######## and ###### have been interdependent, we will be moving forward in a partitioned province. This creates accountability for both groups, prepares the teams for the new ##### functional environment, and the eventual dissolution of the ####### group's current role. I expect the ###### team is working on a similar documentation set, if so directed.
To accomplish this subsection of the infrastructure plan, we will begin to build a new, cohesive, and comprehensive documentation system. We will tackle issues that may arise during the course of the project. There will be no delays based on suppositional postulations.
Please move forward with the data collect as requested.

This is how we are getting screwed:
SEC. 112. COORDINATION WITH FOREIGN AUTHORITIES AND CENTRAL BANKS.
The Secretary shall coordinate, as appropriate, with foreign financial authorities and central banks to work toward the establishment of similar programs by such authorities and central banks. To the extent that such foreign financial authorities or banks hold troubled assets as a result of extending financing to financial institutions that have failed or defaulted on such financing, such troubled assets qualify for purchase under section 101.
If you own crap debt and you're a foreign bank, no worries the USA Govt. will buy it from you! ARGH

The complete list provided by Biden's Senate office is below:
As of September 23, 2008
Senator Biden/Meetings with World Leaders
This is a partial list of world leaders that Senator Biden has met with at least once over his nearly 36 year career as a United States Senator. As mentioned, this list is not exhaustive.

I think someone's parents should have been talking to their child before things got out of hand. This is why you have to talk to your children. You have to be involved in their lives, despite their angst filled behest. You can't be so self involved to ignore your child. Say, like partying, smoking pot, doing everything & anything to avoid your life... or you are just fucking stupid!

Just think if we didn't do this:
Obama wouldn't be running for president, nor would Tiger Woods be one of the best golfers ever. I think maybe it's time we not worry about people's sex lives.
And my son participates in this. He's more socially responsible than I was at 13. Last year, he told me his mother had yelled at him for not speaking. I wonder if the same thing will happen this year, or maybe she'll ASK him what he's doing.

So, there have been a few news articles lately about BPA in plastic bottles, canned food liners, & other consumer products. I understand that Canada is talking about laws to deny the sale or use of items with BPA, and in true Walmart fashion they're reacting to the press & banning children's products with BPA. This seems about as dumb as arguing about global warming... This will require more study. If you are one of those idiots that thinks the water tastes different because you change bottles... well, you don't have a clue. The levels of BPA that are being seeped are in the 100ug/kg/day levels.
I don't feel compelled to believe the Plastics industries studies, nor do I feel the need to accept only the scientist who've done nothing but research this single issue for 20 years. We will all die in the end.
Worrying about plastics when there are things like war mongers in office?!?!? I'll stick with worrying about whether some idiot in DC is going to start WWIII.

I made the mistake of stopping by the local BMW dealership yesterday to drool a little. I was talking to the guy about the R1200GSA HUM-V, as he put it. We moved on to the topic of LWD;weight, EX terrain, etc. Then this thing came up:
Sounds like a cool bike. odd that they moved to a upright twin. I guess it makes it easier to drop/pickup in the field? It looks more like a Dakar bike, and a lot lighter than the R1200GS. You can put a GF/Wife on it... Leslie? Maria? Annie?

I originally wrote this because I don't want to download every PDF I find online. I've since discovered this, an extension for PDFmenot.com. I like it better than the Zoho Viewer since it can better handle the PDF formating. In case you do use my script, here's an updated version without PDFs.

Excellent Chinglish! This guy does a really good job with the voice over work. Interesting HID ideas with the UMPC.
This post reminded me about the our group @POSTnet.
In the spring of 1997, Winamp was released. It spread through the office like a virus. As a group of tech support reps, we had very little work that required real attention. That meant we had lots of time to talk, never mind our constant IRC usage, we had a great idea for a portable media player for this new music format: MP3s. I think had we been in an area with real VC and a business minded coworker, we could have been a dotcom bust or the ipod... oh well.

I have been behind on some media types. mostly because I spend most of my time job searching... damn contracts. anyway, I've had a chance to start watching Long Way Down. Good so far, but I remembered the Race to Dakar Boorman had done. Watching that as well... doesn't help the motorcycle desires! Someday I'll have a MC again.

"We're putting up with the federal government on so many fronts, and nearly every month they come out with another hare-brained scheme ... to tell us that our life is going to be better if we just buckle under on some other kind of rule or regulation. And we usually just play along for a while. We ignore 'em for as long as we can. We try not to bring it to a head but if it comes to a head we found that it's best to tell 'em to go to Hell and run the state you wanna run your state.
Unfortunately this time around they've really got a hare-brained scheme... almost all those hijackers on 9/11 would have qualified for a Real ID."

I now believe that the "Patriots Dynasty" is not to be considered a dynasty, especially when you cheat!
Apparently, Belichick has been taping opponents since 2000! I guess in the last few years he has figured out how to apply the signals to the films to the game plans effectively. There have been coaches who had all the opponents signals in the past, but were not able to effectively use them during a game. I think Belichick needs to banned from the NFL, ala Pete Rose and MLB. Cheating is just like gambling when it comes to pro sports.

Today is the 1 year anniversary of my smoking cessation. I've not had a cigarette since 235509FEB07. I have had a few cigars, but mostly during the warm months. I haven't had one since early November. That's not the same addiction... it does cost a whole lot more.
A few notes: I have still not become a "born again" smoker, and I won't! I am happy to not have the cravings, & the withdrawal... wow, the withdrawal was BAD. I still can't stand having to smell people especially the women who think they need to keep layering on the fvcking perfume; STOP BITCHES! I can still drink too much, which blows the whole nicotine/ETOH theory out of the water for me. Oh yeah, that thing about food and smoking effecting it... no change. I can still make guacamole better than you. Hell, I make everything better than you! :D

Alton F650 XUV
The F-650-based XUV was built by Alton Manufacturing and carries a GVWR of 25,999 lbs. That makes the 660 ft-lbs of torque generated by its 7.2L Caterpillar engine seem paltry. Besides the big-rig-meets-Excursion bodywork, your nearly $200,000 expenditure for this XUV will get you hardwood floors, custom captains chairs, a 42-speaker sound system, two drop-down 16-inch TVs plus a 42-inch plasma, four computer workstations, plus a train horn.
For $200,000 I'd rather buy 10 Vtec Mini's or anything other than this land tank for homo sapien, vegrandis phallus.
Felt the place needed a new layout & some experimental ads.
I like the 3 column layout better, not sure about the page tabs though. Of course, I'm sure I'll get sick of the ads... who knows, maybe it will earn me a little money.
