from a dev's perspective, i find google play services versioning to be a really very bad joke.
1. modal dialog box in xcode shows up: "the identity used to sign blah blah blah doesn't work expired check your clock or make a blood money sacrifice blah blah blah."
2. go to developer.apple.com and get only "we'll be back soon."
3. try to look in the build errors side panel in xcode, and there's no record of the error.
in my humble experience, there is no cell phone provider who doesn't have a freaking complete and utter piece of total poo web site. credo, t-mobile, net10, all freaking suck. i wish there were real UX justice in the universe and they'd all die off in favor of somebody with half a clue.

funny how the union rules posted in the break room do not start with, "I will do the best job I can." instead the list is like 7 things long, all of which are about how union members are not allowed to argue with each other. and how they will tell other union members to not criticize another union member in 'public', to save it for internal union meetings. niiiice.

"The system is clearly broken, and the loopholes that keep it going are difficult to understand."

I was less sad when we used to have people shooting up things that I could relate to wanting to shoot up. "Going postal" is a lot less wtf to me than "going college campus", and I'm saying that even having been depressed and having gone through one of those universities where people committed suicide all the time.

It just seems lame that people get bent out of shape over anything other than usability. (I jest! Well, kinda.)

speaking of graphics cards, i'll be here all week! and boy are my arms tired. :-( but seriously folks, i have more graphics cards lying around at home than you can shake a 16 megabyte compact flash reader usb stick at.

i always dream of all the cool things i will do some day with those gpus! i will have a render farm! i will have a 3d modeling class! i will have free time to play 3d games! i'll put 2 of them in one machine (awwwwwwww, yeaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh)! i will write my own cool 3d game and test it on different cards! IN SHORT, I WILL RECOUP MY INVESTMENT. except for how gpus are like one of the fastest depreciating things in a computer. and i never really do anything with them. maybe at best i run glmark2 once and then also play a couple-three sessions of minecraft. a game which can probably almost get by with a sofware renderer hardy har har.

in short: i am a pack rat / a freaking idiot.
