the suburban girls and they're making noise

as i sit here using iTunes to play The London Suede's "Asbestos" from Head Music i keep thinking, "wow, wow, wow!" it is a pretty good piece of software: sleek, intuitive, and does a limited amount of tasks well.

i think if you look at software as a whole, many apps violate those three key points; software should be sleek, cool, interesting to use and play with. iTunes is all that. it certainly is more interesting and über than MS' media player 9x. beyond looking cool, i have yet to open a help file and yet i can find almost all the tasks that i think i need. tag editor? oh, there it is, right where i would put it. add files to library? yeap, let's put that under File. sync the iPod with my library? easy-smeasy. the entire interface is pretty easy to get used to and to use. lastly, Apple hasn't tried to put the whole damn kitchen sink in iTunes; it does a few tasks really well: download/buy music, sync the iPod, and play songs. sure it burns CDs, sure you can use it to make billions of playlists, etc etc etc. but the core functions are what standout and they work as needed. anyway, i like it. ;-)

the longer we run our business, the more i am confronted with what i used to preach when i worked at HDS: the customer is rarely right and will lie/cheat/steal to get every advantage they can. every day i am amazed with the level of chicanery that our customers try to whip out on us. yesterday a lady called and asked if she could "borrow" our back yard so she could play with her dog for a few hours. seriously. "borrow". yeah, yeah - she lives in a townhouse, has some new adopted/rescued dog and wanted a place to run/play with it. never mind that we, as a business, offer a very similar service called "daycare" where we charge a nominal fee for allowing pets to use our backyard. just crazy. well, today said customer decided to bring her dog in for daycare - she blew that big $10 for 12 hours of daycare (yeah, $.83/hour). she returns in the late afternoon to pick her dog up and she smells like a brewery. seriously. just craziness. anyway, there are hundreds of stories like this. people are just wacky, and pet owners are some of the most psychotic of the bunch. if nothing else, hopefully it helps me learn some patience and restraint; i could use it.

ok, i am off for my nightly Jon Stewart fix. enjoy!

I must tell the payday loan

No aggression and no invasion can alter that simple fact. It is the Government's
