A slide from Captivate. I'm taking a break from building a French version of a simulation for a course. (119 slides, more than half needing to be partially blurred to protect confidential data. Then insert comments and navigation jumps to allow the users to go through it the way they want. Long, boring work, but I get paid for it.)

In response to an email my dad forwarded to me today.
------------------

I'll give it a read this weekend. However the essay is not by who it says, according to snopes.com (a site that verifies rumor sources)

http://www.snopes.com/rumors/soapbox/chong.asp

Origins: The above-quoted essay about the war on terrorism is yet one more example of misattribution through e-mail forwarding. Although USAF Major General Vernon Chong is indeed a real person, the essay was not written by him; it was something he came across and forwarded to an acquaintance via e-mail, thereby attaching his name to it and inadvertently causing other recipients to erroneously assume he was its author.

This essay began circulating back in mid-2004 under the title "THE WORLD SITUATION — A LETTER TO MY SONS," with the following opening:
This was written by a retired attorney, to his sons, May 19, 2004.

Dear Tom, Kevin, Kirby and Ted,

As your father, I believe I owe it to you to share some thoughts on the present world situation. We have over the years discussed a lot of important things, like going to college, jobs and so forth. But this really takes precedence over any of those discussions. I hope this might give you a longer term perspective that fewer and fewer of my generation are left to speak to. To be sure you understand that this is not politically flavored, I will tell you that since Franklin D. Roosevelt, who led us through pre and WWII (1933 - 1945) up to and including our present President, I have without exception, supported our presidents on all matters of international conflict. This would include just naming a few in addition to President Roosevelt - WWII: President Truman - Korean War 1950; President Kennedy Bay of Pigs (1961); President Kennedy - Vietnam (1961); eight presidents (5 Republican & 4 Democrat) during the cold war (1945 - 1991); President Clinton's strikes on Bosnia (1995) and on Iraq (1998). So be sure you read this as completely non-political or otherwise you will miss the point.

Our country is now facing the most serious threat to its existence, as we know it, that we have faced in your lifetime and mine (which includes WWII). The deadly seriousness is greatly compounded by the fact that there are very few of us who think we can possibly lose this war and even fewer who realize what losing really means. First, let's examine a few basics:
Somewhere along the chain of multiple forwardings, someone rewrote the first few paragraphs and mistakenly attributed the entire piece to General Chong. We have not yet been able to ascertain the identity of the original author.

"http://www.gotoclips.com/hot-girl-in-rain.html"

(sans quotes). Apparently this doesn't work in Internet Explorer (being < 512 bytes) but in Firefox it's an error page that says simply "index.php". I am not sure what they were trying to do, but they failed.

Reminds me of how ntl's web-based mail will sometimes give me a blank page saying nothing but "not allowed" when I try to log out. Apparently I'm a prisoner of ntl forever...

code:
       $variable->{ArrayOfEntries} = [
{ width => 100, entry => 'Order ID', },
{ width => 50, entry => 'Total', },
{ width => 100, entry => 'Date', },
{ width => 200, entry => 'Ship to Company', },
{ width => 100, entry => 'Status', },
{ width => 150, entry => 'Last Modified', },

My (fledgling) attempt to clean up some code containing horribly named variables being assigned data that doesn't make any sense to appease html templates that were poorly designed by an idiot.

An order number, I copy and paste order numbers from one data base to another.

I hit a button that imports from the sales database to the OE database and when the order is "Committed" it disapears, so I either have to wright it down or copy it and paste it. Since i only need it for about 2 minutes and wrighting it down would fill up 2 pages a day I do it this way.

There's nothing wrong with me, This is how I'm supposed to be.

resuscitated

I used the word in another post and I can't spell.

BTW, Bibo, and others interested, I read the letter in your link.

The United States of America has been fighting Middle East terrorism ever since President Thomas Jefferson sent Marines to confront the Barbary Coast Pirates (1803-1805). Jace Raven sings a catchy little ditty that includes a mention of that adventure.

Teddy Roosevelt waved his "Big Stick" and sent seven battleships to Morrocco in 1904 after Ion Perdicaris was taken hostage by rifle-toting Berber tribesmen led by Mulai Ahmed er Raisuli.

UBB automatically links, no?

http://testing123.com/ (no UBB tags here)

The latest iCab private beta allegedly (I've not tried it) will open any URL, linked or not, if you cmd-click it. (With standard modifiers applicable)

[Edit: Yep. I only use UBB URL tags when I wish to caption the hyperlink, often good with excessively long links or when I want to put the link in the flow of a sentence.]

(PS my clipboard now contains this post, in case Firefox or the site poos on me as I click Edit Post ;)

Really? I'm finding it more vital for surviving grad school.

One of the reasons I find it so funny is because it's so true.

My clipboard purge...

Nothing, not a motion, not a twinge or a faintly perceptible spasm. An empty sock hanging on a wall was the analogy one of them used. I cringed slightly, because that has happened to me. Who hasn't it happened to? There are just times when nature has its mind on something else. Maybe there's a force that tracks the current population growth in the world: if it's too high it flies around disabling penises until the numbers settle down. It very much fits with the Gaia concept if you cogitate enough about it. The population must have been very high that one night my Poor Brenda (who also has some big… oh pardon me, you don't need to know that) sat and watched my limp fifth appendage wallow. It was the first and so far last time I cried openly. After a shake of the head I rejoined the conversation. Wonder Woman's plan being totally foiled, she decided to have an abortion. She told Mr. X - whom I now feel like calling Mr. Impotent just to make myself feel part of the group - that she had to "go shopping" and off she went. Wonder Woman told the interlocutors that she returned to the house in tears carrying about ten bags of clothing she already owned. Mr. Impotent was concerned, but let her go to bed sobbing. "The total ass!" one of them hissed. I have to admit that wasn't nice, but I've experienced that too with Brenda. Sometimes women just sob for no reason, and no matter what you do they won't let you in on their pain.

Ummm... ahhhh... I apparently need to purge my clipboard more often...
