cos everyone's outside paying more attention to the geese??
Sunday, June 8, 2008 by starkers | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk
Has anybody else got this... a page error that suggests drunken coding pigeons? I suppose it's perfectly understandable, really... that they're feeling depressed and lonely, and hit the bottle because the entire Stardock staff has become infatuated with the geese (not to mention the spider-ducks), but still....
Whether it's perfectly understandable or not, however, Brad, being the smart and very sound businessman that he is, should know to keep his liquor under lock and key when it's known there's drunken birds on staff. For a start, pigeons are not known to be very good drinkers and are like dodos when it comes to flight... and those that do make it off the ground, well they ofen end up as aircraft jet engine food. So please, all Stardockers with liquor cabinets (and those with a sneaky flask in the desk drawer), please keep it under lock and key... I mean, you don't wanna be getting visits from PIMPS (Pigeons In Mortal Peril Society), now do ya.
Actually, that's not my biggest gripe! I mean, slow and no-go page loads can be annoying, but having a constant echo in the gallery comments area is downright annoying and embarrassing.... like I can't control tha parrot on me shoulder and stop it from mimicking my every word. Yep, every word I say... now this really needs to be looked at cos I don't need no parrot to make me look like a fool.
***yes, I have cleared all my cookies, thrice or more now... but the damned parrot...er, echo persists (two same-numbered posts every time)***
Oh, and another thing! What's with these target specific ads? More to the point, which Stardock staffer has a friend/relative in Aussie pest control? And is trying to drum 'em up some business? Yeah, I was in Karmagirl's 'spider-duck' thread and I got this ad for an Aussie pest control company... and yep, I was signed in/logged on. So what's that all about? Yeah, I got bitten by a nasty spider once - and we have/had a ginormous spider out in the shed, buy I/we don't need pest control. We have an abundance of fly swatters about the place, and if the creepy crawly requires something more substantial, I have several pairs of size 13 shoes about as well.... so no more pest control ads, OK?
In closing, I have a word of advice for Stardock staffers... look afer your coding pigeons and pay them more attention. And it's not petty jealousy over the geese and spider-ducks, either. They're very sensitive creatures and they will go downhill rapidly when feeling rejected, dejected and real lonesome inside.
