feel the burn...

Feel the Burn...
Fitness Jumpsite will calculate calories burned at your specific weight for more than 200 activities. Best part is, you can view 'em all as 1 giant list and compare the activities (other sites make you enter and view the activities one at a time).
Fitness jumpsite

CalorieLab is another cool site for counting how many calories you burn. Choose from a list of diverse categories like occupation (housekeepers burn more calories than traffic cops), indoor exercise machines, and self care (bl ow-drying your hair burns more than showering). Some of those are a little silly (NOT recommending you try styling your hair for 3 hours in place of a workout!), but it's interesting stuff for sure.

The Secret

success and happiness....a secret?
can you have "heaven on earth"
to be happy you simply need to desire something....
what is the secret....the law of attraction...simply envision what you want and it will come to you...
scientific nonsense?
can your happiness be based in science ... or is is possible to "just dont worry be happy"

3 keys aspects:
all involve thoughts.feelings.actions....all of them need to be inline.

"the greater the love you feel and emit, the greater the power you are harnessing"

happiness = living the life your designed to live.

Monte Carlo


Monte Carlo methods are a widely used class of computational algorithms for simulating the behavior of various physical and mathematical systems. They are distinguished from other simulation methods (such as molecular dynamics) by being stochastic, that is nondeterministic in some manner - usually by using random numbers (or more often pseudo-random numbers) - as opposed to deterministic algorithms. Because of the repetition of algorithms and the large number of calculations involved, Monte Carlo is a method suited to calculation using a computer, utilizing many techniques of computer simulation.

the way life should be...

I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first,
start out dead and get it out of the way. Then you wake up in a nursing home, feeling better every day.. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, then, when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day. You work 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You drink alcohol, you party, you're generally promiscuous and you get ready for High School. You go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a baby, then, you spend your last 9 months floating peacefully with luxuries like central heating, spa room service on tap, larger quarters everyday, and finally you finish off as an orgasm.
I rest my case.

Education Quote

“Education can be defined a number of different ways. For me, it is the product of human curiosity. Intellectual thought, as far as I can tell, is nothing but the asking and answering of questions.”

What IT Hate About Users

Dealing with an IT job can seem nice on pay day but there are all the other issues we deal with...

1. Users Lie - Many times I chalk up user misinformation to a lack of technical knowledge, but Users will also tell you straight-out lies. Perhaps they feel guilty about breaking something, but lying about the symptoms of the problem at hand only further prevent the solution.

2. Management Doesn’t Understand - Bosses understand what the IT Department does, sort of. Yet they control the budgets, personnel, and usually make IT related decisions without input. We are then expected to make it work right off the bat no matter what else might need our attention. Part of the trouble with being an IT Pro is that we are like a movie editor; you only notice us when we mess up.

3. Perfection Expectation - IT Pros are expected to know how to fix every model of every device ever manufactured. If it has a screen or plugs into a socket, we are expected not only to know how to use it, but also to troubleshoot and fix it. Immediately. Without a manual. Hey, a copy machine is like a computer right?

4. Every User’s Problem is Our #1 Priority - Many Users will run into the IT Department screaming that their "Internet" is broken and it must be fixed immediately. While we understand the pictures of your Mom’s new dog are insanely important, we might be busy doing something that might rank over your issue, like ensuring that the entire company is receiving email, or fighting off an attack from some Korean kid. IT Pros across the world could work eight days a week and never solve every issue.

5. Some Things Just Won’t Work - We program computers with logical instructions, but as everyone knows, they do not behave logically. Not every device can work with every other device. Standards are not standard, as there are different implementations of every standard ever made. I would love to sync your iPod to your cell phone via a bluetooth connection; it should work right? When we say that it cannot work, take our word for it. We are the professionals after all.

6. Personal Pro - We don’t mind answering a question a User might have about their home computer setup, but they must keep in mind that everyone in the company does the same thing. We try to be kind and helpful, but sometimes we are really busy and tired of the grind. If a local IT Pro starts you off on the right path, GOOGLE for the next steps. We do not have the time to hold everyone’s hand fixing their Mother’s 1986 Packard Bell setup. We understand the concept of "Teach a man to fish…", but Users need to understand that exterior systems are their responsibility.

No more pennies

Rep. Jim Kolbe introduced the COIN Act. (Currency Overhaul for an Industrious Nation)
COIN – force us all to round off all cash transaction to the nearest 5 cents.
Why? Because of the rising cost of zinc (which the penny is made from)
Cost to make a penny is actually 1.4 cents.
