A Few Bits and Pieces

I've been reading a lot of Stuff White People Like lately. I have to say, pretty amusing. It's very insightful and kinda scary in it's accuracy. some of their posts seem as if they've looked directly into my soul....

At the Korean supermarket the other day, I saw this bag of chips and it's potato chip mascot. Found the image amusing, so I snapped a photo. I don't know if he's waving a finger at me warning of the lack of any nutritional value within the bag, or if he's saying something like, "Oh, you know you want to purchase my intense BBQ flavour." Regardless, with the pageant sash, it's clear he's been crowned, "Mr. Potato Chip World 2008."

The other week, I saw the news and weather report displays on the TTC platforms rebooting for some reason. Text scrolling along the black background, I picked out a few lines and saw that the server is running linux. I don't really have any follow-up to that fact, so moving on.....

My internet switches over in a couple of days from Sympatico to TekSavvy, hopefully no issues will come, but I wouldn't be surprised if there's something. I don't trust Bell to figure out that they should stop billing me.

And lastly, a picture of the floor plan of my new office. My desk in green:


  1. Did the chips have this on them?

  2. That is hilarious. Unfortunately, no they don't.
