    The first official Oblivion plugin is out. Horse Armor which for pc users is only $1.99. The official description says:

    Tamriel is a dangerous place. Protect your horse from danger with this beautiful handcrafted armor.

    There are two sets of armor you can buy for 500 gold per horse. Only one set of armor can be used on any given horse. You can not change the horses armor after you pick it. Here are the screen shots showing both armor types Steel and Elven:

    Steel 1 Steel 2
    Elven 1 Elven 2

    For those wondering you get a “Oblivion Product Activation Key” that you have to enter in to get the plugin to install. Two other plugins are advertised on the official plugin site with a release date of coming soon.

    Harness the power of the stars. Rebuild the defiled Orrery and unlock the secrets of this Mages Guild Inner Sanctum.

    Wizard’s Tower
    In the frozen mountains of Cyrodiil stands Frostcrag Spire, a tower of wonders for your magic-oriented character to call home.

    Orrery should be mentioned because it is in the game now. Except it’s a closed door thats locked and goes no where. So it’s sorta like your paying to finish off the game as it was released. Some may scream foul play on this. Personally I don’t care. What’s a dollar ninety nine?

    It looks like someone finally read the fucking TimeClock Plus manual. It’s funny that it took this long. Honestly the dumb fucks are lucky I told everyone and their brother how to cheat the system.

    Time Fixed

    Why they would have set it to use the pc’s time in the first place is beyond me.

    On an impulse I bought an iPod nano. I also purchased Peter Jackson’s King Kong and a pc game called Space Rangers 2 that I will never play thanks to Oblivion. All of these things I surely don’t need.

    The game is worth mentioning for the fact that it is a turn based strategy game that has gameplay elements including text based games, real time strategy games, and even a little dab of rpgs. For the longest time this game which was developed in Russia previously had to be imported to be able to play it here in the states. It’s been compared to Elite a few times and it’s as open ended as my current obsession Oblivion. Usually I would have screen shots of the game, but as I said I haven’t even installed it yet. But I will get to it.

    Here is a screen shot. It’s a bad screen shot. Space Rangers 2 has StarForce.


    And the game is uninstalled. My new pc started acting weird after it’s install. Which I figure is the result of that fucking virus called StarForce. That’s what I get for not checking the list first.

    The movie. Well shit what can I say? It’s King Kong. Only this time with that Peter Jackson touch. Whatever his touch is. It’s really long. Maybe that’s his touch. Whatever it is, I like it. I’m a softy for the woman destroys the innocent beast story.

    The iPod is something new for me. I’ve never owned anything Apple. So it’s interesting to see how simple yet effective the interface is for this thing. Makes me wish I could have bought that one that does video. My only question on the iPod is how do I get my music off the iPod if I hook it up at work? I can put music on it, just not take it off?

    Retarded Pay Days 7:24 pm-

    This bellow was with my pay check:

    April 10, 2006
    To: All Employees
    From: Management

    Effective April 14, 2006 Douche Bag Hospitality will be changing from semi-monthly pay cycles to bi-weekly. The work week will change from Monday thru Sunday to Friday thru Thursday. Paychecks will be distributed 10 days after the pay period ends. Hours worked April 1 – April 13, 2006 will be paid on April 24, 2006. The next pay period will be April 14-27. If the pay day falls on a Saturday, checks will be issued on Friday. If pay day falls on a Sunday, checks will be issued on Monday. Please forward questions to the general manager or to the accounting office.

    Does that make sense to anyone? Honestly. The old system was pay periods began on the 1st of the month ending on the 15th. Then the 16 to the end of the month. We would get payed on the 10th and the 25th. If pay day fell on a Saturday we got payed on Friday. If pay day fell on a Sunday we got payed on that following Monday.

    So it’s clear that management is fucking retarded right? Bi-weekly. Let’s look at that word for a second.


    1. Happening every two weeks.
    2. Happening twice a week; semiweekly.

    They take something really simple. Every two weeks. And fuck that up with this “if it falls on a Saturday or Sunday” bullshit. Stupid fuckers. Lets do it exactly every two weeks with pay day every other god damn Friday. Jesus you fucking guys are starting to really get to me. It’s bad enough that the fucking dead beat owners can’t stop checks from bouncing. But we have to constantly put up with this inept managerial style.

    Honsestly some please explain to me (hotel managers or otherwise) why this can’t be a simple get payed every other Friday? Post in the comments section if you have any input on this subject. I really would like an explanation.

    Phone Problems 11:12 pm-

    A while ago we had this problem where the phone would ring three times in a row every five minutes. After a number of days it was fixed. Now it is back. The first time it happened I would answer each fucking call like it was a real call. Because I hate getting my spiel cut off. Even if it’s me doing the cutting.

    It’s just one of those ticks of mine. I have to say the whole fucking thing or I’m just not happy. But not this time. Fuck them. Every five minutes I answer and release three time in a row. Answer Release, Answer Release, Answer Release. I’m not even bothering to pick up the phone. If it’s a real person they will call back. If it’s a real person and they don’t call back? Well fuck them.

    This kind of thing will never be fixed. It will only get a temporary fix. The shit will break again. The hotel is to cheap to fix anything the right way. It’s a good thing I just don’t give a shit anymore.

    Drunk People 2:31 am-

    Drunk people. I hate them. The bar called down when I came in and wanted someone (other than themselves) to come down and take care of some passed out drunk. My response was of course your on your own. Actually I told them to call the cops. They said but it’s a guest. Fuck them. Passed out drunk is not a hotel sort of problem. That’s the realm of men in blue.

    Later a hotel employee came up with this supposed drunk passed out guy. Which I had assumed that the employee was taking the guy home? Or something. Well as it turns out that this employee was taking the drunk to another bar. Or again I assume this is what happened. Because this employee later returned with the drunk and was shit faced also. This particular employee I have seen all boozed up before.

    The employee asked me to call a cab. I dialed the number and gave them the phone. When I’m not drunk I can’t stand drunk people. This drunk hotel employee is trying their best to be funny. I hate funny drunk people even more. So I decided to take the humor out of this employee by letting them know that the cab takes forever to get here. The drunk employee doesn’t like this. The drunk employee wants to go home and pass out.

    It’s at this point that this shit faced employee decided to drive home. Except the drunk employee doesn’t want to look like some shit faced drunk and they try to get me to decide for them. The employee doesn’t know me. I’m only responsible for one person. Me. I don’t give a fuck about some drunk asshole. If you want to drive home drunk do it. If you want to wait for the cab great. Your an adult and it’s time to act like it. And of course the drunk employee drove home.

    Now I’m sure that I’m the bad guy here. I should have been the babysitter for this drunk employee of the hotel? I should have forced the employee to give me their keys? Sorry not me. I’m payed 8.75 an hour to do the audit. That is it. No more, no less. I don’t care if I come off the bad guy. I like being know as the asshole. I’ll be damned if I have to start looking after stupid fucking employees that don’t have the common sense to wait for a cab rather than risk getting a DUI or worse.

    The Douche Bag 11:44 pm-

    A great story was told to me that I must pass on. It’s a classic. It’s about the New GM Douche Bag.

    The second shift front desk clerk was going about their business when the sheriff comes out to the front desk. As it happens the New GM Douche Bag was out in the lobby and sees that the sheriff is behind the desk. “What are you still doing here?” the new gm asks the sheriff.

    The sheriff responds “I’m here to help with the check ins.”

    The New GM Douche Bag replies “I don’t see the need for you being here. Go home. The second shift desk clerk is very capable of handling the check ins. Are you trying to impress me?”

    Which at this point in the story I’m laughing my ass off and didn’t hear the end. I wasn’t going to write one word about this New GM Douche Bag. But then I went and forgot to turn on the Idiot Page again after playing with some stuff on the site. The New GM Douche Bag by luck came to the site at the right time and left two comments on past articles. Which is really all I’ll have to say on this subject. I write about the retarded shit that happens at the hotel. I don’t cover this kind of stuff. It’s the best compliment I can give.
