I’ve made a huge mistake: To be a computer tech or not to be a computer tech.

I've made a huge mistake

I've made a huge mistake

An article in The Age about computer techs and their chosen lifestyle made me realise just what a mistake we’re making.

Long story short: now I run a computer repair business.

Babes, parties, status, wealth – these are just some of the things you’ll be missing out on by becoming a computer tech.

But that’s OK. If you have what it takes to be a computer tech, you will have a genetic predisposition to driving away members of the opposite sex. In fact, members of any sex.

I’m just kidding.

Oh darn, I was just about to enjoy being a techie. But wait he’s just kidding.

How do you know if you have this personality type? If you have more computer magazines than girlie magazines, and if the thought of an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 with 12mb L2 cache running at a clock speed of 2.83GHz and a bus speed of 1333 MHz stirs the kind of feelings usually associated with procreation, you are well on your way to a career in computing.

Uh-oh, this one time, at band-camp LAN camp I was talking about the new Intel i7‘s coming up and oh noooooo! Just remembered I also have far too many developer mags lying around and no Womens Weekly nor Cosmopolitan‘s. Doom is imminent, it was also a kick-ass game made by those clever folks at id Software who just the other day got bought out by Zenimax Media, they’re also working on Doom 4 powered by the RAGE engine did you know? Doh, I’m digging my own grave aren’t I by going on? I better stop, you just go and read the article yourself before I start admitting to something like my crazy adventures in Linux.

But if your a hottie and you see a computer-techno-nottie, just go and give them a hug. They need it, those tradies, they’ve got their stuff together, so do the sparkies. We programmers, gamers who resort to online dating and wierdly obsessed facebook/twitter stalkers need love too. Who knows, we might even get around to fixing that problem with the mouse moving around the screen all by itself one day.

One things for sure, the future is not set, there is no fate but what we make for ourselves.

Nick of Time: Seek Job Ad for Credit SuperHero.

April 29th, 2009 2 comments

Got an email from our old receptionist at Vividas who’s now working at Very Special Kids, a job ad from Seek.com.au.

Advertisment for a Superhero on Seek.com.au

Advertisement for a Superhero on Seek.com.au

It was pulled moments after, but being a guy from the internets, it was saved for future amusement. Looks like its for Dargan Financial (from title) Enjoy!

Turning Japanese: Suntory ad for tea.

There are somethings money can buy, for everything else, there’s Youtube.

I miss Japan.

Thought of the week: Administrators, Developers & Friends.

October 20th, 2008 No comments

Here’s something to keep in mind the next time you see your administrator at work.

Keep your friends close, but your admins closer.

With that, something for the developers of the world.

Yes, we all need to be hugged sometimes but these days developers need it more than anyone else (well aside from Administrators).

Go on, go into that dark room that people barely visit and hug a developer today. You’ll bring a smile to their faces, turn their frowns upside down and who knows they may actually help you the next time your stuck  instead of asking you whether you’ve tried turning it off and on again like those pesky admin types who usually just sit there playing solitaire all day (or so the story goes).

But you know what, on your way up back to your 15th floor desk, why not give the Admins a little shout out and see what they’re doing too. Who knows, maybe next time they’ll make one for the less fortunate Administrators of the world.

Lost In Translation: Benny Lava

September 8th, 2008 No comments

Came across the funniest interpretation of a Southern Indian song by Prabhu Deva Sundaram, I’m not sure what they’re saying but the sub-titles do speak the truth to the non-speaker.

Just a sample of the subtitles

You need a bun to bite Benny Lava…

Have you been high toooday?
I see the nuns are gay!

My brother yelled to me…
I love you inside Ed…

My loony bun is fine Benny Lava!
Minor bun engine made Benny Lava!

I told a highschool girl…
I love you inside me…

Heelarious.
