One of my coworkers left a note for maintenance yesterday. It reads "Door lock needs attention" and then the room number. What does that mean? Is the lock lonely and wants someone to talk to? Does it want to be shown some appreciation, perhaps with flowers? Does it want to go to a ball game and have a couple of beers? What?

I'm sorry, is this lock already spoken for.

NobodysHome's Tirade of the Morning
So I've been in tech a long, LOOOOONG time, to the point that I still insist on avoiding special characters in file names (especially the accursed space, infamous for its destruction of code and URLs) and keeping the names as short as possible. (OK, I've outgrown the 8-character limit, but I'm still careful.)

On the other hand, government agencies not being able to handle hyphenated names incenses me. Passwords that can't handle nonalphanumeric characters cause my blood to boil.

So this morning, I was trying to log on to my corporate Single Sign-On (SSO), and I was informed that my password has an invalid character.

Yes, I use nonalphanumeric characters in my password.
Yes, my company seems to have changed its password policy to disallow nonalphanumeric characters in passwords.
Yes, this incenses me.
Yes, this also means that I cannot access the system to change my password, because they just disallowed it.

Looks like I'll be having a fun conversation with IT later this morning...

So does that mean we'll get an afternoon tirade as well.

Which are understandable and incredibly frustrating. :-)

Update: Ah, well, looks like it was just a hiccup in IT. They resolved it, and I can log in again and actually do useful work.

Woo hoo?

(And for the record, my passwords are basically me mashing the keyboard with both hands. Makes for pretty darned secure passwords, though they're impossible to remember. But I figure anyone who goes to the effort to break into my house deserves to find my password book and run amok for however long it takes for me to notice the break-in and lock down all my accounts...)

#0: She is really good with a hoola hoop. Wow.

From the left.

#1: Tie-die fool-hat tambourine guy is funny.

#2: Immediately after he leaves, only sometimes-visible pink-shirt stick girl drops her stick (again). This actually happens several times before this, too.

#3: Sometimes-visible orange swimsuit guy playing sticks with the girl is nice.

#4: Fully clothed lady with sunglasses (yellow shirt, brown pants) is amusing. I'd totally be her.

#5(+): "Secret" dancing character, "unlock" achieved! Behind #4, in the backgound, is someone just standing there, dancing. (There's also someone clapping to our right of that character. Someone walks in front of them right before the end. There's also someone in red shorts and gray shirt noticeably bending over something near there... but I've got nothing for why.)

#6-7: All-black clothes+hat guy... wat. I... I thought that was part of his outfit, before he... pulls it out of his pants. O.o Also, he backs up into toddler momma! Yay, safe toddler!

#8: Photographer guy walks and... squats.

#9: Dancing lady with diaphanous dress-over-other-dress to the right of the guy above. I don't know what that technical term is. Black shirt sandy other dresses.

#10: Belly dancer in red dress (with... green... belly?) who's core body... doesn't move. Her limbs do, and rhythmically, but her torso doesn't seem to at all.

#11: At some point after tie-die/tambourine/fool hat walks off, a guy just kind of... appears from behind the belly dancer. I have no idea. Doesn't look like anything too amuzing, but it's just impressive that I didn't see him at all prior to that moment, considering, he's much taller than those around him.

#12: Lady with tan beach hat and light blue shirt! Rock on!

#13: Tall blonde lady with turquoise belly dancer (with flare pants?) outfit! Often obscured by #12, she's dancing, too!

#14: Sand-white headdress woman with ornate head dress, and and orange flags!

#15: In the background, someone puts their red jacket on and sits down just before the video loop ends (and is still adjusting when it's cut off).

#16: Background guy in blue shirt, yellow-green-tan(?) hat, throws something at the last minute to someone else to our left. Really, he's almost unnoticeable (and nearly indistinguishable) from anyone else until he does so. He is directly above the head of...

#17: ... the pink-dress neck-hoola-hooping girl keeps it going the whole daggum time! She almost looks like a gif randomly stuck in the video! She is good!

#18: Start of the video: woman standing in white, facing the other way. Video pans off her, returns, and now man in white sitting and facing this way! COINCIDENCE?! I. Think. Probably.

#19: Blue dress woman starting to enter the scene just as the video clip turns off!

It looks like there might be somewhere around ~70 people in the background? I could be miscounting by quite a large margin, however, so it could range from ~50~100 - I lost count/track of exact people somewhere around each of the ten-person marks (10/20/30/40/50/60/70), so I had to guesstimate.

I'm mildly disappointed that I couldn't come up with an even 20 explicit "things" to notice. Seems like I should be able to!

Incidentally, there are a lot of people with percussion instruments in the background. I count at least thirteen, and they do not all look like they're in rhythm with each other...

"A game."

See? 2 words and not what you asked me not to say! >:D

Back to one-word, though:

"Wyrd."

No?

Okay: "That predestined series of events that, when looked at in chronological order, make up a life lived. Sometimes it masquerades as free will; sometimes it is "free will" constrained by the nature of the person itself, and sometimes it's an unstoppable and obvious current that forces people along a path whether they chose it or not. Sometimes it actually is free will, and is reinterpreted as that which you are able to do, if you follow the course. It's also a game. Suck on that, free will."

There: 87-88 words (not sure, kids kept interrupting all of my counts).

Hope that helps!

There's a thread about how to build an impregnable fortress. My dyslexic mind originally thought it said "how to impregnate a fortress"

Alas, the disappointment when I clicked on it was palpable.

Scooby-Doo 2 still isn't a good movie*, but it's actually a lot better than the first one**, if only because it treats its characters with respect, instead of open hostility.

EDIT:

I mean, it still mocks them relatively unrelentingly - that's part of its attempt at being a "live action cartoon" - but it does so with more grace than the first.

* This is not a surprise.

** This isn't hard. In fact, it would be hard-pressed not to be.

Casserole is made! Before the General gets home from work even!

Nothing says I love you in the Midwest like putting a crust around some meat and vegetables in a pan topped with a pound of cheese.

In case anyone's curious, it's a "Mexican" casserole. A bisquick crust with layers of taco seasoned chuck, black olives, peppers and mushrooms with a top crust of sour cream and a pound of cheese.

You can substitute beans (refried and black beans work best) for the meat but you'll need to add a bit more of the heat. :-)

My cousin gave my mom a similar recipe for a "taco ring". It's pretty darn good.

FWIW, tonight I made baked breaded (breadcrumbs, citrus-ginger-soy spices/seasoning, and grated parm) chicken breasts, and a caesar salad (although parents can't eat salad without tomatoes, so I have maters on the side).

H'mmm... I was going to make curried chicken this weekend, but that (EDIT: "Mexican" casserole) might be a better option. Thankyou, Captain.

In other news, 'The Final Countdown' by 'Europe' is playing.

Goodie goodie

LOL.

Living in California, reading what the Midwest thinks is "Mexican" food is... interesting...
"Put olives in it! Now it's Mexican!"

Ah, the great olive groves of Cordoba, how I miss them...
...don't forget the corn meal! It's not Mexican without corn meal!

(OK, now I'm just being rude, but I remember my parents' "Mexican" dinners. They were better than most of my parents' cooking, but their relationship to anything south of the border was tenuous at best...)
Your dinner sounds extremely tasty, but I don't think I'd be able to order it anywhere around here...

It's true! The Midwest has crazy ideas on what constitutes "Mexican" food. Though in fairness, the seasoning in the meat is just as integral to it's "mexicanity" as the black olives.

And yes, that was one of the biggest culture shocks of moving west. That and having to order extra cheese in order to get an acceptable amount of cheese on your food (pizza even!).

LOL. Oh, yeah. For the whole west coast, cheese = fat = obesity, so it has to be totally avoided. The west coast is all about avoiding moderation and doing everything to its inevitably-idiotic extreme. You have to fight tooth-and-nail just to get a decent amount of cheese on ANYTHING, and you can actually order cheese-free pizzas.

I've never heard a decent answer to the question of, "Why?"

Kind of like vegetarians trying to create artificial meat. I could cook up at least a dozen different delightful vegetarian dishes right now, with just the stuff at my corner store and in my pantry. And not a single one tries to fool the palate into thinking there's some kind of meat in there. They're just darned tasty and stand on their own merits.

Ah, well, I think I'm in Freehold Bike Range, so I've gotta go.

Hit the McDonald's drive-thru tonight because I was in a hurry. Ordered the 20 piece nuggets. Got to work, looked in the bag, and where I expected 2-10 piece boxes, there were 4-6 piece boxes. Each of which had 10 nuggets inside. So, I got 40 nuggets. That's a lot of nuggets.

What if you planted some. A McNugget farm practically pays for itself.

Maybe feed a couple to chickens and set them loose in large urban areas. See if the latent T-Rex genes start firing up again. Or is that too dark.

Hot peppers and tomatoes are planted, still need to sow seeds of corn and peas and plant the extra tomatoes and ambrosia (cantaloupe) melons.

All told I got 6 hot pepper plants, 10 tomato plants, 6 ambrosia melons, 2 seed packets and two bags of garden manure for less than twenty bucks. :-)
