Office Posters

Every office has that go-to guy, the one who has been around before shoes were invented, knows everything, and has millions of stories. Our office has one, he used to be a partner, then kind of retired... but does not know how to not work, Dick Roediger. A few years ago, we found an old photo of him from back in the day when he was a lady killer. Opportunities like this are too hard to pass up, and during slow times at work, I have to do something interesting... so I borrowed his headshot, and a movie poster... and... tada:

Since that time, I have made one for every holiday, or every day I get bored. I have made alot of these. Here are some of the better ones. More to follow.

Halloween this year:

This year's Christmas has a few posters.

Best advice I heard all night

A beautiful, young red-headed friend of mine once told me:
"Never make someone a priority, when they make you their option!"

And, (now) I always say "always listen to hot red-heads."

Spam of the day

Spam is not the normal thing people like... but I was bored, so I read some of it. Spammers are always trying to out trick the anti-spam-bots with new and clever ideas. One of the newer ways is to steal lines, words, and paragraphs from various websites and assmeble them into meaningless dribble, which might make you read it. This makes for interesting combinations... here are a few I found this morning. Note, these are taken directly from the e-mail, no alterations.

com allows site owners to "claim" a word for their very own
If I copywrite that word, can I earn royalties?

This site is selling out words quickly, New Specials Each Week! Perfect for wedding and baby showers, kids' parties, or any occasion.
With Christmas right around the corner, you might be unwrapping your very own word.

Words disintegrate to reveal new letters.
Guess there are use-by dates for all those "words" you bought earlier.

Each month we will send one of our giant Mrs.
They ran out of regular sized Mrs a while ago.

Wind your way through the hive tunnels to find the exit, and smother hapless beekeepers by swarming with the rest of your hive to show the puny humans your queen is boss!
Puny humans... all your queen are belong to us!

And if that scale scares you think about writing a simple program that helps a single student learn something new.

But at its heart - computer science

With the MS version, you have to look in the UNDO files.
Geekdom version of X-files... a straight to Beta-max release.

Mudloggers are expensive.

Harry invisible children
How does one know if an invisible child is harry?


Get reasonable price suffer.
Another great Christmas present idea.

of asking "what's your problem?
