Oh, I don't think I'm a lot dumber than you think that I thought I once was...

(08:17:08) SomeBritInMass: How's life today.
(08:19:24) EricHowton: Little rough around the edges actually, though it was nice to see Daisy!
(08:21:09) SomeBritInMass: Daisy lives with Tony. Tony likes to drink. Tony drinks a huge amount, especially when you're around. You were at Tonys last night!
(08:26:58) EricHowton: Exactly!
(08:27:23) SomeBritInMass: Sherlock watch out!

I saw a couple of Dallas County Constables on my drive in to work this morning. I think it's coincidence.

Let me tell you, a double-fault final-play elimination hasn't occurred since the Helsinki episode of 1919, and I think we all remember how THAT turned out!

I have finally made the move to replace my longtime Google default homepage to drax0r.org. I tell you, it has everything you need! Even a link to CTRL-ALT-DELETE online!

A coincidence occurs when unexpected parallels can be drawn from two or more events. In the popular sense it is used to describe events (or, more accurately, combinations of two or more events) which are of low probability.

xanga's e-props are gay.

Nobody makes me bleed my own blood. NOBODY.

I'm back on the set, covering all bets.

So we went through this NT domain migration. Everyone's on a new domain now. They kept the WINS servers up for the sole purpose of authenticating users properly when they write to their samba shares. Well, since migration everyone who writes to their shares shows up as 'nobody' and the reverberation has been felt far and wide. The Resource Technical Branch Team Leader stopped by my desk so I could fix this. "Talk to your Windows people." I told him. (I usually tell him this by default, but in this case, it was actually applicable.)
"But it only happens when they try to write to their Sun workstations, so it's your problem." he tells me.
"It worked prior to migration, it doesn't work now. Not my problem."
"Perhaps you forgot to change some samba settings on some boxes?"
"I didn't change any samba settings on any boxes. My boxes simply tell all incoming connections, "Authenticate via WINS."
"So...you're going to fix it?"
