Any idiot can drive fast in a straight line

Check the timestamp, I'm still at work! Woohoo, going on 14 hours!

Today is one of the most frustrating days of my life. Slashdot has been down ALL day (which I usually check once an hour) and I have been at work for 10 hours now. Mac OS Server X 10.0 needs to die.

After seeing how Fisher-Price-esque Windows XP has become and how it is horribly ripping off Mac OS X, I just had to make this image.

Here are the things I will be learning about in the next few weeks:

Most people say this is what I look like normally.

Possibly offensive acts and what certain religions think, all distilled down into a single table. Now you can see easily why the only religion I have ever followed was Buddhism. (Link found in the comments section of Fark to a story about an offensive ad. The ad shows a Catholic man in the line for communion holding a bowl of onion dip. Sweet. Check out the comments for a scan of the ad.)

Sick of spending most of my days just trying to find something to keep myself busy, I have decided to get some certification. The first one will be A+, which most people think is a joke. I figure I can get this certification with no training. It covers basic hardware skills and DOS/Windows skills. The hardware portion is as basic as "Is this a power supply or a video card?", but gets a bit more difficult with "Is this RAM chip ECC or not?". What they call the Operating Systems Technology is just an overview of DOS/NT/Win9x/Win2K. The OS exam covers basic Windows installation, troubleshooting and networking. If I can't pass these tests, my legacy as a failure will go down in history. If (once) I pass these exams, I will try my hand at something actually difficult. Too bad there isn't a generic sysadmin exam. There are exams for linux sysadmin, Redhat sysadmin, Solaris sysadmin, and AIX sysadmin. If there was a BSD sysadmin cert, I would be all over it.

I really shouldn't make this public already, but I created an online scrapbook. More specifically, this is a scrapbook for my high school class, created in PHP using MySQL. Let's hope this is actually used.
