    SW:KOTOR PC 5:37 am-

    Well I bought the pc version of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (SW:KOTOR for short) and I admit I was nervous when I first ran the game. System Requirements are close to what I have, but I was worried because sometimes I think the required system requirements are a fairy tale that the developers invent to get one to buy a game. I’m happy to say in the thirty or so minutes I played the pc version of KOTOR I had no problems at all. I got all the graphical options on high and my screen resolution is 1024×768. After I play some more I’ll put up some screens shots.

    Perhaps I’ve started off on this whole thing the wrong way? I shouldn’t be so hard on the new front desk manager. This person hasn’t been doing this as long as I have and may not know how things are at the hotel. One has to take in account the fact this new one is just starting out in this business. And make no mistake, anyone who comes into a management gig and has less than five years under their belt is going to have a hard time at this hotel.

    They have no idea of the places history and what the current situation is really like at the hotel. You got to understand I’ve been doing this hotel stuff (one way or another) for over ten years now and my previous comment about earing respect still holds. And I understand that respect runs both ways. I’m just in the position that my respect given is of a greater value than that of a three year “veteran” of the hotel business.

    Look at it this way. I am the only one (apparently) able to train people on how to do the audit. Now the questions to ask yourself is do I get payed to train people? Am I a manager were it would be my responsibility to train people for the audit? So you will have to forgive me if I come off a little gruff. You add this training thing to the list which includes no vacations and a lack of a raise in a long time. The list by the way that keeps me from doing anything other than the audit.

    The issue of being late (really late) to work, on the other hand is still something that pisses me off. That’s not something you will be able to change how I feel about. Your a manager it’s your duty to lead by example. And as a matter of fact I asked the consultant the following question: “you come in at a scheduled time and you leave at a scheduled time right? And you expect to leave at your scheduled time?” His reply was yes to both questions. So I guess I’m right on that one.

    Thanks to Gawain for summing up my last post in an easy to read manner:

    It sounds like you had a healthy dose of “make me a pussy” the other day. A nice hot cup-o-puss. Yeah. I mean, I understand you have to be polite when you insult somebody, but wow. You sucked up and then mentioned they might be late sometimes and could they please stop or you might have to send them a stern letter. But I guess since your hotel people read it, you cant exactly fill an entry with “FUCK YOU FDM” over and over again.

    This is a good time to mention I’m apparently a pussy and gay:

    you are indigo
    #4B0082

    Your dominant hues are blue and magenta. You’re the one who goes to all the parties but doesn’t quite fit in at every one… you know what you want, but are afraid of what the world might think of it. You’re a little different and that’s okay with them, and if you’re smart it’s okay with you too.

    Your saturation level is very high – you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn’t be afraid to lead people, because if you’re doing it, it’ll be done right.

    Your outlook on life can be bright or dark, depending on the situation. You are flexible and see things objectively.

    Starbuck? 8:42 am-

    So the new sexy reworked Battlestar Galactica started yesterday. I’m not sure what to think of it. I’m pretty sure I don’t like it. Why you may ask? One reason and one reason alone. Starbuck is a chick. Look at this chick (picture below), and tell me that this is right?

    Starbuck?

    Starbuck was a guy that was all about pussy. Can we honestly have the same thing with this dyke looking chick? It’s just not right. She looks like Macaulay Culkin for christ sake. I’m glad I work tonight because I’ll miss the second part of this catastrophe.

    Spyware 2! 6:32 pm-

    The last time I was a little surprised by the amount of spyware that was found on one of the work pc’s. This time I just can’t believe how stupid these people that work at the hotel truly are. And I’m sorry this kind of shit can only be the result of stupidity. The last time it was only 65 nasty bits of spyware. This time there were over 262 spyware objects found by Ad-aware.

    Spyware 2!

    The funny thing is that the last time this shit happened I installed Ad-aware on every work computer. The computer that had all the shit on it mysteriously didn’t have Ad-aware any more. I’m still baffled on how this can happen. Without blaming it on stupidity. Can a person be that fucking clueless to accept every piece of spyware that is thrown their way? It’s disgusting and irritates me to no end.

    Just a note to hotel management (and I use that term loosely) this is the last time I maintain a computer other than the one I use. Your on your own from now on.

    Spyware & Viruses 4:18 am-
    Comments Comments (0) Categories Points Permalink Permalink

    So the Spyware problem I wrote about yesterday got me ten whole points. No one can tell what I can get with my points, which just supports my claim that this “points system” is just in place for punishment.

    Now the spyware problem isn’t over. In fact it was a lot worse than I had suspected. The spyware coexisted with viruses. Besides the hundreds of little bits of spyware the computer in question (Node 3) had 12 viruses on it. I managed to clean out the virus’s after a few hours of fucking with it. There was one that was very persistent and wouldn’t die easily. It would spawn other viruses in fact. The virus in question was named TalkStocks.F (also known as Downloader.MSCache) and is a Trojan Horse.

    The spyware problem isn’t solved on Node 3. In fact it is going to be a problem for a long time. The last remnants of spyware on that pc won’t go away. This shit is some stuff from N-Case and Bargain Buddy. You can run good old Ad-aware and it cleans the shit out, until you reboot and then it’s all back. Thankfully the pc I use (Node 1) is crystal clear. And that’s the way it’s going to stay. If I have to lock it down I will.

    It’s funny about the viruses though. These pc’s we have came with McAffe VirusScan. Of course McAffe didn’t detect shit as far as virus’s. It’s funny of course because I downloaded AVG Free Edition and got the virus problem taken care of. Which is a great compliment to this free piece of software, which to me functions better than either McAffe or Norton.

    And personally if it were up to me I would fire whomever it was that caused all of these problems. I don’t care if this is a case of ignorance. This shit is unacceptable. Hundreds of spyware, dozens of viruses all of which a business would not want. God forbid any of our clientele found out how insecure we are at this hotel because of computer incompetent employees.
