    Holy crap I want this! I have all the collections they put out in softcover. But only the last four or five were bigger than normal so you could appreciate the Bill Watterson’s art.

    This is a test.

    If your seeing this… Well if your seeing this that means that I’m messing around with my website. I’m thinking about switching from using Coranto to something called WordPress.

    This plugin is very neat: wp_versioning which lets you keep old versions of posts and compare them or revert to the older version. For example here is version 1 of this post and compared to the newest edit.

    Retards At Work 2:47 am-

    The internet is down here at work. It’s down at least on the computers behind the front desk. So my only chance to get on the net sits in the still vacant front desk managers office. Of course I’m going to pop in there every now and then to check email and see how the site make over is going. I still don’t know if I’m keeping this new look and the system that powers it. I’ll decide later on.

    First thing I do is take a look at the condition of the computer. The thing runs like shit. It is obviously full of spy-ware and viruses. I try to download AVG to clean it up. Except I can’t download shit. Some security warning pop up appears every time I try to download a file. So I run the piece of shit McAffe Virus scan. Below is the results:

    Retards at Work

    What good is an anti virus program if it doesn’t get rid of viruses? What good is it I ask? This is software that these idiots here at work have payed for. I expect a product to work if I’m going to buy it. And why use something I have to pay for when I can use something that works even better for free? Not that I really give a shit, it’s not my computer.

    I guess it’s just the idea of how stupid people can be. 7 goddamn viruses and countless number of spy-ware was turned up by the virus scan. How ignorant can people really be when it comes to the internet? I guess I take for granted what knowledge I have about these matters and I expect everyone to know this information.

    I have to let this kind of thing stop surprising me. In fact I would wager every computer in this hotel has viruses and spy-ware. Well every computer except for the one I use. I only really worry about that one I use. I’ll purge some spy-ware now and then when it gets bad. But for the most part the only pc at work I will use is the one at the desk that I have made sure that these fucking heathens here do not contaminate.

    Every time I use another one I feel like washing my hands. I’m developing a phobia maybe regarding all this virus/spy-ware shit. All I know is I hate having to use another pc here at work. In fact this post here I wrote in notepad on the only clean pc in the hotel. I’ve typed it all out and saved it to a floppy disk and only briefly fouled myself to get this posted on my site. I’ll be glad when the net is back up and running here at work. Man what a long night it will be.

    The change over is pretty much done. I have successfully imported all of my news database in from Coranto and now just need to edit out the references to the old system. Plus of course all the pages on the site that were not handled by Coranto that I need to add to this new system. I’ve also for the most part been able to recreate the “old” look of my website after a few false starts. It’s a mockery of WordPress’s beautiful blend of valid xhtml and css that the other themes use.

    Which brings me to some of the new features one can find here now. First of all you can register so you can be able to comment on the posts. Not that you have to really register as of yet thanks to the addition of a plugin called Spam Karma. Which I am testing out at this time. It mat prove to be too eager in it’s duty of fighting spam. But I’m willing to give it a shot. You also may notice a few other changes in my site because of some of the neat features of WordPress such as the calender, theme switcher and the before mentioned comments system to name a few. Give it a shot and test it out for me and let me know if anything you post that is not spam gets eaten up by the spam blocker.

    Not much else to say really. Still no word on what the deal is with the position of the front desk manager. I’m starting to think that I’m no longer interested in the job. The temp gm’s one week to let me know is up and I consider the offer over as of now. They want me it’s going to cost them even more now. I don’t jump through hoops for anyone, especially these unprofessional fucks that run the hotel.

    If I Was In Charge 12:39 am-

    It’s been more than a few weeks now since I was supposed to get told just whether or not I am going to be the front desk manager. This whole thing is now starting to get to me. I’m starting to get pissed offed to be honest with you. I’ve been worrying about just what happens if I do get the job. It’s really starting to get to me.

    So I’ve asked myself countless times since this shit began what would you do if you were in charge? The short answer is that I would fire everyone not doing their job. That’s important to me. I don’t give a shit if you break rules. I love breaking rules. Do your job and break all the rules you want I don’t care. Just as long as the rules you break don’t interfere with others doing their job. Very simple right?

    Then why is it I’ve already fired not one, not two, but possibly three people already in my head? That’s right because they don’t do their job. That also means I’m working more than I would want to be. And this is all just in the beginning. God fucking forbid I actually survive a month or two. The hotel front desk would end up being staffed by three people. And I don’t want to work every day.

    Which is what would happen as the other employees I have left would be doing the audit. Working everyday multiple shifts is what I have to look forward to if I become front desk manager. Which right about now the odds of this happening are pretty fucking slim. I’m very confident in saying that I think I no longer want the job. I’m not certain why exactly this temp gm is taking so long in getting someone in the position. But he can now take all the time in the world. I just hope to see him once more so I can get another chance to laugh in his face.

    Bullshit! 11:52 pm-

    This last week the other lady that does night audit had the weekend off. Back when we had a front desk manager I had said that I would work the weekend. Since everything has changed in-between that time and now I decided I was not going to work that weekend. So when the new schedule was put out I of course call the poor lady that is dealing with the front desk stuff and I leave her an angry voice mail about how I was not going to be working and that if that wasn’t ok she could start working the audit in my place. Or something really close to that.

    The truth be told is that I don’t care if I work weekends now and then. The other Auditor had some business to take care of out of town so I would have worked anyway if they would have tried to tell her she could have her days off. But as it turns out my bluff wasn’t taken as a bluff. They gave me my normal days off and talked the head desk clerk into working. Now he’s just about the only one who knows how to do the audit besides me and the other lady. He was nice enough to agree to work even though he had some things he could have done on the weekend.

    The weekend comes and on Saturday night around 12:30 at night I get a call from the hotel. I didn’t answer the phone because I was asleep. I would have answered it if I was up. As it turns out the head desk clerk didn’t show up at 11:00 to work. Whoever was on till 11:00 called the lady running things at the desk. And once the poor lady running things got to the hotel she started making phone calls. She calls the head desk clerk and she calls me as I had previously stated. As it turns out the head desk clerk simply over slept. Understandable really as the third shift is not his normal shift. He finally got into work around 2 o’clock in the morning.

    Now as it turns out the people in charge at the hotel wrote up the head front desk clerk for being late on Saturday. Which I think is a mistake on their part. He was helping out working a shift he doesn’t do normally. He was doing the hotel a favor and this is how they repay him? Now I have given the guy my advice on what he needs to do from now on. The next time they ask him to fill in on a shift he doesn’t work normally he should tell them to go fuck themselves.

    I hope they realize what they are doing. I will not work unless it’s the days I’m scheduled to work. You see they get what they pay for. All they need to do is look and see the last time I got a raise to understand my unwillingness to work shifts other than what I’m scheduled for. Which is why I say writing him up is a bad idea. He is a nice guy and is willing to fill in. And then theres me who is not willing at all to help out.

    Guild Wars Funs Over 11:59 pm-

    Well my fun with Guild Wars is over with at work. Well unless your idea of fun is watching the “Connecting to ArenaNet” stay at 0% all night. It was only a matter of time before port number 6112 was shut off.

    Funs Over

    All things considering I’m not all that disappointed. It’s not that the game isn’t fun. It just that as of late I have been playing World of Warcraft again. More specifically playing on Icecrown (PvE Server) with the guild Hammer of Light. I forgot how much I missed the Alliance side of things after dirtying myself with the Horde on Stormreaver for so long.
