    Not to many. They want to be lied to and continue to live the charades they call a life. Anyone who even alludes to their fallacy by speaking the truth is treated with disdain and contempt.

    Ha, there's a couple running shops downtown that do the same, which means they start running during rush hour in down town Copenhagen.

    Thankfully I live outside the city center and next to a park, the same does my gym.

    This is true, but on the other hand a lot of people who call themselves "honest" are actually tactless assholes with diarrhea of the mouth.

    A pissy followup to this. I didn't need any gear, but I passed sale along to some friends. Since it is one of those stupid members-only sites, you have to sign up to shop there, and they give you a referral bonus if someone signs up and buys something.
    To get the $25 referral bonus, they have to spend at least $25.

    Of course the best climbing harness deals were priced at $24.98 so even though my friend bought one, it doesn't count as a referral :(

    I do prefer to run outside, but there's three reasons why I needed to stay indoors:

    Being outside at dusk in a Florida summer is miserable. I can deal with the heat and humidity, but there is a veritable cloud of bugs that I just don't want to deal with

    My current program involves all-out sprints, and when I do that outside people assume that I've just stolen something

    The topography of Florida is as flat as edina's ass, so I need an inclined machine if I wanted to do hill type stuff

    My boss just called. I have to head back to my office tomorrow (on assignment elsewhere until Thursday) to pack up my personal effects....




































    Because I'm moving offices. :fu: Getting shipped off to a shittier space with only one window. God damnit.

    Whew, for a second there I thought you were going to be the first government worker ever to actually get fired.

    my first government office (state Capitol, sacramento) had a really huge window but I had to share the space with another dude. Second (basement, City Hall, NYC) had a sort of window up high but the office itself was half underground. Third was first floor city hall, huge windows but shared with like 6 other people. Then a tiny CH office once occupied by David Rockefeller, window but lousy and small.

    CIA: window and I was alone. NSC (EEOB), first was a shared cubicle, window but really lousy. Actually moved around a lot in that building. Last office, formerly Ollie North's, had no window.

    I think it is too early to lose faith in Conne's eventual termination yet.

    My work blackberry died yesterday after 5 years of service. My assistant goes to our procurement department and gets me a list of new available blackberries to choose from.

    No Q10, no Z10, and every model on that list is marked on the rimm site as "discontinued"?

    Really??

    Bold 9700 was the best BB ever made. Mine made it through a deployment alive and has been since retired to a drawer.

    I am not loyal to BB at all. I jettisoned it for an iPhone. I knew it had become obsolete when I couldn't open text only webpages on it.

    I think BB as a mobile company may be done. I had to use the q10 for two weeks, as the guinea pig for the firm. It absolutely sucks. It was very unintuitive and cumbersome to get anything done. I do think that BB, as a QNX, company could have a bright future in other areas, if they could innovate. Unfortunately for BB, innovation is not their shtick.

    I happen to love my recent Nokias (currently have 1020) and wished there was a Windows Phone with a keyboard native or as slide out add-on for my boss. One would think that Nokia could capture significant market share in enterprise with just one phone with a physical keyboard.

    On the other hand, the lack of physical keyboards has cut down on significant afterhours emails.....
