I am full of yummy pork, and have had my ears destroyed by the Destroyers. :lol: BOC was good too (personally I preferred them to Thorogood, but I'm the BOC fan in the family).

Yes, Ribfest has gotten really huge the past few years. They've spread it out over a much larger area, which helps a lot with the crowd density. The downside with the new layout is that it is now a ~2 block walk from the main stage area to the rib vendors. I also really wish they'd get some decent beer at the beer tents, but hey it's a rib festival not a beer festival, so who am I to complain...

Replace the Facebook/blog bit with something about the TR forums and/or LinkedIn, and that's me!

That comic is my life. Apparently the guy that writes it used to be an attorney. I can't imagine what a really funny lawyer might be like, so maybe it's good that he got out of that line of work.

Well today is shaping up to be a pretty f**ked up day. Business restructuring and layoffs announced this AM. I still have a job (for now), but several of my co-workers (and the GM and one of the Directors) are out of here.

Sounds like a "make sure your resume is updated" day...good luck, JBI.

Not a great summer business-wise. We hired one last week and fired a different one this week due to a shift in workload, a friend of mine saw five sent packing in his <25-person local office on Tuesday, and another friend has been dreading a layoff announcement since January which, as of last week, had finally spared him but churned a lot of other business sectors in his company.

One of my newer coworkers is just painfully dumb. Nice enough person, but I swear their IQ is probably room temperature. This is getting exasperating. I hate to see someoen that's really trying to do well get in trouble but she's just frigging dumb and it impacts her work.

What's the point of having so many tennis courts at parks? I don't have anything against the sport, but I've noticed that nearly all suburban parks have multiple tennis courts that sit vacant almost the entire year. It's a very rare occasion that anyone will use even ONE of the courts, but many of these parks have 4, 6, or even more tennis courts with tumbleweeds blowing through them. What's the point? Why do they spend money to build these things and have them sit empty?

Then to top it off, they yell at little kids who happen to ride a bike or a skateboard in them. How dare they abuse the empty tennis courts that nobody uses.

It is a government conspiracy. They've made contact (and formed an alliance) with the alien race responsible for the Roswell incident. The tennis courts are actually landing pads for the alien spaceships.

Just maxed out the RAM (to 4GB) and swapped out the mechanical HDD for an SSD on my creaky old Lenovo laptop. It feels like a new system! I figure I can probably hang on to this latpop for another couple of years now...

....especially since "new" laptops come with dual core, ULV processors running at one-point-something GHz because they're so pointlessly thin that there's no room for a decent battery or cooling system.

I can mock ultralight ultraportables in exactly the same way that I can mock people who have spent $5000 making their bicycle a couple of pounds lighter. I can make the combined total weight of me and bicycle two pounds lighter by dropping the Browns off at the superbowl.

They're cheap and quick to put up, I imagine.

The one by my parents house was like that, and sat empty. Then they took out the tennis courts and put in a skate park. Oh how the residents complained. To the park district's credit, they basically said "no one used the tennis courts, and the skate park gets used like crazy. STFU"

OTOH, the tennis courts in the park by my house get used all the time, there's people waiting. YMMV I guess
