Lies. Chicanery. And just plain unfair! Microsoft’s latest marketing slogan mocks more than encouraged. I endured a three hour + tour of restores, registry cleanings, belligerent threats, cooing, prayers and sage burning (not really) for what turned out to be a video codec problem. One would think with all the bombardment of updates and security patches Microsoft spams they’d update codecs. Their real passions are road blocks, detours and speed bumps. You can never reach your potential unless you’re challenged. Who knew Microsoft was so freakin’ deep? Dealing with Microsoft is like being in a partnership in the fishing industry until you realize you’re the first catch. Window 7 is soon to be rammed down our throats while Vistas can’t seem to get off its teething ring. They need to take the operating system back to formula. And their products are woefully humors. PowerPoint is PowerPointless! For the life of me, I still can’t wrap my brain around Office 2007 having compatibility issues with Office 2003. Spare me the Apple rant. I’ve visited their forums and the venom factor is about the same. I see they’re peddling virus/spyware protection now. Looks like the mighty Apple has been juiced and the tiger been pelted. I thought they were untouchable. The whole computer industry is the best nickle and dime racket to day. Ponzi schemes are so pre 9/11.

Static Movement

the start off..

Static Movement

My annoyance level is cresting at the moment and Muni. Well, it’s Muni.
“Static movement” is what I would call it. I couldn’t stop chucking at the fact we were already in Embarcadero Station and we’re repeatedly tortured with “approaching Embarcadero”. Seeing Bart passenger mocking us going up on the escalator/stairs didn’t help or stop my laughter. What’s the point of having driver if they can’t override the automation for a brief moment to let people off the train. I won’t event start on how you could bullet all the way from Church Street and still have to stop between Montgomery and Embarcadero for Embarcadero. Silly nonsense. Now, my work computer wants to act like its having a retrograde and I’m overhearing a strained conversation. Ouch. Basically, I want to be working my project and everything is an annoyance. Gotta go zen for five hour before nirvana.

Muni…

...you gotta do it.

...you gotta do it.

The sausage tube was semi-entertaining this morning. I discovered this woman chatting to herself as if she was whispering to someone. I couldn’t tell if the woman next to her caught on, but she appeared as vapid as Ms. AT&T. Later, I thought she was cooing the baby aboard, but she was caught up in her moment. She so needed to get over herself. Tick or no tick. I moved in closer. At least this wasn’t like last week:
1/7/09
Weird start of a morning, especially at 5:30 AM. Jumped on a wire piece and experienced “minor” difficulties in my approach for hind legs. They’re not “feeling” right. Fifteen hours later, I bullet off to merciful MUNI. I treated myself to the F-Line. I figured a nice quiet scenic route instead of the sausage tube could help me dream storm my latest project. Two incidents erupted at different times, but oddly in the same location. Our first combatants were ushered off at 10th. I almost teared up at the “take your hands off me” part. Volume goes up louder on player and I shielded my face in the window. Less than 10 minutes, in the same location, the Springerettes are throwin’ down for a late night. This gripping visual was more than enough and I passed on the dialogue as my music played on.
