I'm just impossible to please // whine bitch moan -- er, work

So, my old office (for those new to this adventure, it was a broom closet prior to my occupancy) had no ventalation, and with a few machines on during the summer it would get rather warm.

My new office, due to being an actual real office (with window that looks upon a lovely scenic cement wall), has ventilation! for some reason I haven't fully comprehended, though, the air conditioning seems to be set to 'artic'. My little mini-fridge doesn't even bother trying to keep up, and it's actually *WARMER* in the fridge than the rest of my office (rather, it was untill I decided to just unplug the fridge and keep the door open).

damn, when the job description listed "subject to extreme changes in temperature" I didn't think it meant "when stepping out the office door". the rest of this building is warmer. Sure, all the offices are colder than the halls, but mine seems to be the coldest of the bunch.

Today, I attack the thermostat. it's so fscking cold in here that I can barely feel my fingers (no shit, I just bit one to test and barely felt it -- left nice marks, though) and typing is difficult.

What is really funny about this is that the AC came on (it wasn't allways this aggro) right as the weather started getting *colder* outside. WTF?!?!

HA!!! hehehe.. // funny news

So, someone on /. linked to an article in Wired where they are talking about yet another vuln. in Diebold electronic voting systems (the systems that are looking to be used in the upcoming US election).

The vuln. being described isn't as big as some others, but what I love most is the general comment a Diebold spoksman gave, stating that "no one would risk manipulating votes in an election because it's against the law and carries a heavy penalty."

HA!!!! that's fucking comedy *gold*.

opinions? // life

so (gotta tab, what, 8 times? sucky!), what I was really meaning to post was a poll, 'cause I know you all love clicking polls!

The field is narrowed to three providers, assuming phone options are equivalent (which I know they are not, but I figured it'd be important to nail down who I was going to give money to first).

Poll #354211 narrowing the field further

Which provider do you think I should use?

Cingular
2(22.2%)
Sprint PCS
0(0.0%)
T-Mobile
4(44.4%)
Other
3(33.3%)

If other, or if you like filling out polls, expound your reasons.

Is there one of these three that you think I should avoid?

Cingular
2(22.2%)
Sprint PCS
4(44.4%)
T-Mobile
1(11.1%)
I'm an assmonkey and even though you're not considering them, I still want to make sure you don't pick .... (see below)
2(22.2%)

If you're an assmonkey, or if you would like to rant about why one of the three is bad, explain further.

Have you seen the poll generator page yet?

Yes
4(44.4%)
No
2(22.2%)
