The firewall here doesn't block eDonkey2K  
And other such lovely discoveries. Now that Audiogalaxy is effectively dead, I'm looking to other solutions.

I had an interesting "discussion" with a cow-orker earlier today. She apparently had some "issues" with the new bugtracking system, which she refused to tell me directly; she waited until a group meeting to attack me in front of the group, citing her concerns as reasons the bugtracker should be scrapped.

Fortunately, almost all of her concerns reduced to things she could have changed for herself in her user preferences. I have some patience for clueless users, but there are reasons I should NEVER work in customer service. I think I embarrassed her in front of everybody; I know people were still laughing about it when she went for a lunch break. She was the only one with ANY issues, so it's officially "approved" now.

Our move is postponed until August 1st, and we finally secured the rights to stay here until then. I'm told that after the move, I will have my own office; that'll be a nice first. A lot of us are pushing for wireless networking, so I think that will be a high priority at the new place. For now, I'm still pirating off of a nearby wireless lan that is not password-protected. If they are too clueless to slap a password on the network, they are probably too clueless to notice my bandwidth usage.

Wow, I'm feeling snarky today. About the only "good thing" today was the fact that pullthestars was so pleased with MonkeyBagel. It's recommended reading for everybody, and a real pity that his site hasn't been updated since 2001.

oh, it's been updated since then, since he had Stuff about the WTO riots (1999).

MONKEYBAGEL! *snicker*

Hey, off topic, but can I crash at your place after the party? I think steven is staying down south after moving on saturday (You'd have to ask him to be sure though) so you wouldn't have to stop at our place on the way down...
