About those TPS reports …

About those TPS reports …

These are the “motivational” posters that I mentioned in my previous post. There is one in every level in every main stairwell. I don’t know what’s more scary: that someone came up with this, or someone approved it. What the fuck does this even mean?? No tags for this post.

Quick update

Quick update

The new job is going really well. I had my first wireframe review with my boss yesterday. I came armed with Visio wireframes and a sheet detailing what I changed and why. I comped three different approaches and gave her a quick run-down on the pros and cons of each. I probably talked a little […]

Bad Omens

Bad Omens

It’s a good thing I don’t believe in omens. Otherwise I wouldn’t have shown up for my first day of work yesterday. Besides the natural sizes (full moon, torrential downpour), there were a few portents that almost kept me in bed. I also missed my alarm. I sat up bolt upright in bed, and had […]

Monsters Menace America game review

In an effort to expand my collection of board games that look really cool but we never actually play, I purchased Monsters Menace America from Tanga.com in December of 2006. It so intrigued my friends that I’ve only played it three times so far. I kept trying to push it on them, but they wanted […]
