New job

Started the new job yesterday. It's, as a 90's rapper would say, "wicked awesome". This morning I actually couldn't sleep an hour before I had to get up, so I got up anyways and got there a few minutes early.

I'm not going in to all the details, but they gave me this wicked computer... p4 2.8g mHz 800 FSB w/ 512 MB 400 mHz RAM... wow. I don't even want to compare the p3 450 to this thing... don't even wanna.

3 words... Second Cup coffee.

that is all

Yet another example of the US education system failing.

Looks like it's time for a style change

Just checked out a great blog called Happy Furry Puppy Story Time with Norbizness, mostly political stuff, but interesting and funny. UNfortunately he is using the same style as I am... so now I have to get off my ass and create a new style.

I've been fux0ring around (isn't that special eh? use of 1337 words in a blog.. who woulda thought) with stylesheets and block formatting etc. lately, so maybe I'm smack my way through creating some templates for MT and make it so pretty you may lose control of some body functions.

oh yeah... and there are approx 12.5 hours 'til I'm finished here...

And the numbers are rising for people leaving... just heard someone else found a job, and is going to be escaping. The floodwaters are a risin' on the shores of the river, and the village is in danger, but the mayor is in his tower with painted sunshine on the windows and fields of butterflies and daisies on the walls.

one little comment

And suddenly the hits to my blog jump 500%... (sad when 25 or 22 hits is 500%)

Apparently many many people are suffering from the same homepage stealing as I was. And they're all searching Yahoo/MSN/Excite for "clrschp028" (there... just created more traffic for this page) ahahahaha.

Anyways, in band news we had a gig at Longriders on Friday, and then Saturday took a road trip up to Grande Prairie and played a gig at 5 mile hall. All in all the weekend was fun, even though I accumulated a total of 15 hours of sleep, and had to ride in the back seat of a 11 seat GMC Savana. I don't think my spine will ever be the same.

Oh, and for all you folks finding this blog, looking for ways to get rid of clrschp028, I had to go into Internet Options and change the homepage there (Start > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options), and also remove some registry entries (using Regedit) in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\run\ and I also got rid of O.bat and O. Luckily I did a search for files by date, so they were pretty easy to find. I also quickly updated win2K on, as I think they are most likely using one of the many many security holes in IE.

OH ... an addition... just changed my security settings in IE to prompt running ActiveX... looks like that's what is being used to install the crap onto your machine. AMAZING how often I'm prompted, and when I say no there is no visible effect to the page viewed.

Here's ANOTHER reason to disable ActiveX on your browser

Blasted popunder homepage stealin mothaf#$@ers

I love it when you subscribe to a free email service ( and the fucking popups steal your homepage EVEN THOUGH I have my google toolbar set to block all popups.

OH , and of course the page doesn't show up in my history now, and I didn't record it... bah dumb me. WAIT.. no... I found it... it's a nasty script I believe... I found an ftp script and O.BAT on my machine... pointing to Or if you want to find who is hosting them they are Service Telematique Service Internet de Montreal .

Looks like it downloads 2 files, ClrSchP028.exe and calsdr.exe. Then Executes, one and then the other... probably one to set your homepage and the other to remove the fornicating executables from your hd.

Fuckers... die die die and die.

What they are playing on is ignorant people who think "OH NO! I HAVE A VIRUS! OR SPYWARE! OH MY!" and then go through either the links provided, getting more shit. Or freak out and start running around in circles screaming "LET ME OUT! LET ME OUT! THE INTERNET HAS GOTTEN ME!"

Motherfuckers... if I came face to face with one of these assholes they'd get a first-hand view of tech support rage.

tick... tock.... tick ... tock

6 days and 5.5 hours before I'm done at this place. Apparently nothing matters, they are holding me to my 2 weeks, even though I've been less than enthusiastic working.

Damn cursed morals, if I didn't have them I'd be like... threatening to delete the company intranet, or .... start a loud shouting match with a co-worker... or spreading a virus around the office... then they'd let me go.

la la la

Well I gave my notice today, and everyone here is happy for me. Some begrudgingly so... most likely envious.

I just found out if I would have made them fire me I could have gotten 6 weeks severance... blast! All it would have taken was 1 or 2 days of being late 5 or 10 minutes.
Oh well, I'll suffer out the 2 weeks 'cause I'm such a nice guy (bleh). They'll probably ask me to leave because I'm so annoyingly cheerful.

Yay for me!

Well I received an email this morning from the Company I applied to, and Whoohoo! they selected me! I'm going to give my 2 weeks on Monday, and if ******** decides they want me to leave earilier, all the better.

It's for a little less (about 100 a month) than I asked for, but that's fine, it's still around 3700 more a year than I'm presently getting, PLUS full benefits, etc.

Needless to say I'm ecstatic, and I'm chaffing at the bit to go.

The state of consciousness has been upgraded to "Gah" ....

No call, no email, I sent an email query about it yesterday

no response

The most unfortunate thing is the longer it takes the more doubt I have I will get the position. Even though I seemed like a shoe-in at the time.

Waiting is the worst game

... uhhh..... ahhh...

Well the interview went pretty well... I think... It wasn't very standard... or normal... or formal... It was unusual, I think it still went well...

I think I've won over one of the bosses, but the head of TS, I'm not sure... he seems wary of me.

Who knows tho... they said they'd tell me tomorrow... boy that's a long time.

I had almost forgotten what a good mood was like.

Today I am in one, and it feels good.

I have another interview at 3:30.

I'm excited.

Think of me at 3:30.

Wish me luck.

Busy busy

"And now it's Wednesday again... "

I had an interview on Monday, it went really well (in my mind anyways). The interviewer mentioned he would have to get a hold of the head of Tech Support, to see about possibly another interview. Luckily I'm the only one being interviewed, the position is not being advertised, and I have a friend who works for the company.

Now I'm playing the waiting game again... hopefully they come along soon, because things are uncomfortable at work. I will post about that at a later time.
