    I see why you've turned to freights for your off hours.
    Otherwise you'd be a gap shopping, green minivan driving hockey dad.

    well if you allow me....

    So I went down to talk to this guy who was tossing out the old comps in the dumpster. He was looking really shifty and he kept looking over his shoulders like he knew he was up to no good. So using my ninja stelth I crept up and taped him on the shoulder. That's when I noticed he was wearing gloves, which struck me as rather odd for such a hot day. Well you should have seen this guy jump. He tried to take a swing at me but I ducked out. He spun around and started running away. I shouted to him that it's only a dumpster and I really didn't care if he wanted to use it, but he was long gone. I took a peak in the dumpster just to see how much crap the guy had left behind but something seemed strange. These computers were like nothing I had ever scene. The casings were this polished gun metal and they almost glowed green from the reflection of the dumpster. I poked at the power switch and the thing turned on! Now this was really wierd. They must run on some internal power supply. Why would a goon like that guy be tossing such cool computers?

    Well I dragged one of them out of the dumpster and waved up to the stiffs in my office window. The looked shocked like they had seem aliens or something. I guess it was a little too much excitment for these 'Will and Grace' watching rejects. So I walked back to the building and that's when the strange stuff stared happening. I had forgot my pass card on my desk but the door opened for me anyways. Then I get to the elevator and the thing went haywire. I had to walk up the fire stairs for six damn flights. When I finally got into the office everyone from the entire floor was gathered around me to ask about what happened. That assmokey Dave was all up in my face saying 'why the hell did you bring that computer up here'. 'Just shut up and clear a spot on my desk.'

    So I plop the box down and hit the power button. A coded login scrren poped up and there was a strange looking picture with a handprint on it. It almost looked like one of those touch screen code things you see in the movies. Well damned if that tool Dave didn't just flap his hand against the screen. These scan lines started going up and down his hands and even though I pulled at his wrist, he couldnt take his hand off the monitor. What the hell was going on? 'Unauthorized Acess Aptempt Reported' flashed on the screen and it finially let Dave the ditchpig have his hand back. The power blacked out and the computer went silent. I tried hitting the power switch but it wouldn't turn back on. 'Oh good one Davey-boy' I said. 'You've gone and broke it'.

    Unbenounced to the both of us,
    somewhere across town, a van load of men all dressed in black,
    and armed like Kabar at a bbq were already loaded into a helicopter
    and headed in our direction.

    someone else take over

    the whole "business casual" rule is driving me dangerously close. Last week I actually said "alright! my real estate agent called and I can get the keys on sunday!"

    sure its just a new apartment, but hearing myself say shit like that scares me.

    this was some old ass shit. 486s that looked like they had been collecting dust for a LONG time. otherwise I definately would have scavenged some shit for myself.


    dave is the IT manager and we were giving him shit about going out and fishing them out so we could upgrade the computers we have in our department.

    nah, our shits pretty up to date. we're doing lots of financial transactions and constantly accessing large databases, so if our shit slows down we lose a fortune. I'm just in a department where nobody knows shit about computers, so anything less than IMMEDIATE response results in "this thing needs more memory!" or "this computer sucks, when are we going to upgrade?!"



    ugh. lunch is over.
