Practical Unix Terrorism

*Gryn* If you haven't seen these t-shirts over at www.theregister.co.uk then you should take a look. Mock titles from "O'Really" based on the O'Reilly guidebooks. Such wonderful titles as "Distributing Clues to Users" and "Windows NT User Obliteration" Makes you long for them just underneath your Despair posters gracing your little gray cubicle.

Things got a little interesting locally. Had a tornado touch down about 5 miles away from where I work in Florisa, just on the other side of the Hurlburt Field main gate. Reportedly folks were injured, but other than that there's little data. And naturally, there's no real decent local news source to check on what's going on. Even the Ocaloosa Emergency Management page has nothing on it. Bleah.

Nothing like Mother Nature reminding you that just because you can do fireworks doesn't mean She can't either. Happy New Year. Whee.

Toto! Come back here with that sheet!

My new year's resolution? I hereby resolve not to make any resolutions. There, that'll work for the whole year. *chuckle* Never could understand why folks bothered with resolutions. I mean, consider the facts:

"I resolve to lose weight." [until the chocolates are opened.]

"I resolve to stop smoking." [only if Phillip Morris burns down.]

"I resolve to stop cheating on my taxes. [if the government stops cheating as well.]

"I resolve to stop cheating on my spouse." [I'll just be blatant about it from now on.]

"I resolve to be more compassionate at work." [if you disagree, you're fired!]

Let's get real, ok? I'm just going to stay the way I am right now. Besides, you can't return me for a refund, that ended when the warranty expired at nine months. *Gryn*

Ok, what would you do if you woke up in the morning as your favorite online/role playing character?

*laugh* I've been thinking about that question for a while now. I think I've reached a conclusion:

I'd probably scare the cats, the neighbors, and my family, and then spend the next few hours staring into a mirror, seeing if this freaky shapeshifting thing *really does* work.

Then I'd probably head online and see if anyone *else* has had this happen, and what the heck we're all gonna do about it!

Heh. Tell me about it. Mind you, I'd likely wake up as some rather amophorous silvery blob in bed, trying to take some kind of shape so that I could interact with the world again. But then the fun might begin...

It's always a fun thing to play with... although writing ideas around such things can be a pain. A lot of times it either devolves into a bunch of cliches or worse, self-gratification. Which is why the few times I have written Tal, it's been somewhat different from the character I play. Never mind the time someone else wrote Tal... (thanks, Misty...)

A shapeshifting drow elf and a shapeshifting wolf/dragon/something...

Egad. *chuckle* We'd take the world by storm.

...or scare everyone to death, one of the two.

Re: Rude Awakenings
Nah, not the world. Maybe a small country...

Besides, think of what'll happen if others join in.
