Computer won't turn off... Help? [Jan. 30th, 2008|12:14 am]

My windows xp computer won't turn off... I clicked start, turn off computer, then turn off, and nothing happened. Tried it a few times, it's not doing anything. The same thing happened last night and I had to just hold down the power button for a few seconds on the actual computer and manually turn it off. But I know it's bad for the computer to do that, so I don't really want to do it again tonight unless I have to. Does anybody know what's wrong, or what I should do?

Hey guys, could you help me update my resume?

Last semester and this one I've been helping a doctorate candidate look at obsidian blades and categorize them. These blades are from a pretty famous Mayan site called Kaminaljuyu. Mostly it was a monotenous lab work kind of gig, but I figure being familiar with obsidian might look good as an anthropology major. Right now I have the kind of resume that lists skills and attributes, the "OMG aren't I so awesome please hire me" kind, rather than the long list of past jobs kind. How could I incorporate this experience into my resume?

Thanks for any help.

So, the trustees of the Toronto District School Board just approved an Afro-Centric school.

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20080130.wschool0130/BNStory/National/

What's your opinion on this matter? If you don't care about Toronto, how would you feel if your town/city had an afro-centric school? Do you think this is a step forwards or backwards?


I'm not trying to troll, it's just a current issue and it's been heated before, so I'm pretty anxious to see what will happen now that it's been passed.

I need a bit of help. Someone I know wants me to help them find a ringtone for their phone, since they hate the default ones that it came with. He just really wants one, an 'epic' one, or so he says. Verizon didn't have the James Bond one he would have liked, so I'm asking you guys this: What would you consider to be an epic older movie with a great theme song? Television shows work, too.

He turned down The Godfather theme, and Space Odyssey 2001. I figure if I get suggestions from various people, I can run them by him, and maybe he would like something.

Oh, before I forget to add - he really just wants an instrumental piece - no singing.

I last saw it in high school, so that's a decade ago. When you went to the site, an Antonio Banderes-esque guy would endlessly extol the virtues of Zombacom. It wouldn't actually do anything except loop into infinity, was completely useless, and totally awesome.

My boss at my workplace has her favorites.  I know, who doesn't... but she goes way overboard.  Her favorites can do anything - they aren't accountable to get any work done, they take FAR more breaks than they are alotted (we get 2 15-minute breaks a day.  They take 4 or 5 20-minute breaks...if not more)  They are allowed to come and go as they please, without recording it or taking leave.  They usually leave incredibly early or sometimes don't come in at all without reporting it. (Leave reports are public) Everyone knows they do, but they're the only ones who get away with it. They almost flaunt it in front of the rest of us.  The rest of us (We call ourselves "The B Team" as an inside joke) are under constant scrutiny and are reprimanded if we take time off, (We are not allowed to be gone twice in one month)  The "B Team" is REQUIRED to work at least 10 hours of overtime each week or else they loose their yearly raise.  The "A Team" does not have to work overtime. 

Most of us realize how unfair the working environment is, so most have quit.  I gave my notice last week and only have a few days left here.  The boss can't understand why so many people are quitting.  I think she knows that there's a double standard (she should - she's responsible for it) but I don't think she's making the connection that that's why so many of her employees are quitting.  She's freaking out because now that all of her "overtime workers" are leaving, the company will be in a state of chaos. 

My question is, should I tell my boss exactly why I'm quitting?   I've read that it's not a good idea to complain as you walk out the door of a company.  Is it worth it to try to explain it to her, or should I just leave and let her figure it out on her own?

Good morning!

1) Have you ever had an IV? (Intravenous therapy or IV therapy is the giving of liquid substances directly into a vein) (says wikipedia)
2) How did it feel?

I had three liters of fluids pumped in me recently and it really freaked me out. The fluids were so cold that I had the chills for hours and hours. And the arm that the IV was in felt frozen solid. It was sooo weird.

3) What are some little things in your every-day life that give you great satisfaction?

For me, it's seeing the brown tint of the water coming off my hands when I wash them. It feels so good to see all the germs go down the drain. I feel accomplished.

and

4)What's your favorite cereal?

Mine has to be fruity pebbles. I'm going to enjoy a huge bowl of it now.

My BF and I just got a letter from management saying they have been told we have a dog. We are not supposed to have pets, but I have seen and spoken to many who do. One guy told me he got a Rx from his doctor saying he was depressed and needed a pet!

What excuse should I use when I meet with management next week? (serious and ridiculous ones are acceptable - they just might work)

Can you post a picture of your pet(s)?

Does your pet know any tricks?
       I taught my dog to "tag your man" like in Dance 360 and she jumps up and down and hits my hand with her paw.


EDIT: I understand the "why did you get a pet then?" comments, but I live a large complex where people freely smoke pot in the parking lots and MANY people have pets. This complex is half section 8 and half college students. The rules here are obviously very flexible.

I don't mean to sound like a dumbass here, but I have a question about sinus infections.

I've been sick the past few weeks on and off, and low and behold, I went to the doctor's yesterday and found out I have a sinus infection.

He prescribed the Z-pack (Azithromycin). I got it filled immediately. Took the first two pills yesterday and took the third pill this morning (you take two on the first day and then one every day for 4-5 days after).

I'm still running a fever. A very low-grade fever, but a fever nonetheless.

Is this normal? I thought after one days' worth of antibiotics, that would kick out the fever, if nothing else. Now I'm starting to get concerned though.

[fourcorners]
1) You go in for a physical, and your doctor discovers something unusual. You're sent down to get an xray, and the results reveal that you have a third, fully-functional kidney. Considering that the human body can exist on only one kidney, you have options.

Q: Do you keep your extra kidney as backup (to your working set), or do you donate it to the needy, or do you try and sell it on the black market?

2) Pat Robertson is dying and needs a new kidney. He sends word out to his flock, but he has an uber rare type and no one is a match. You go in for a physical and your doctor says, OMG, you're a perfect match for Pat! Now, Robertson hasn't offered any monetary reward for any kidney, but rather, has said that saving his life will earn you a great reward in heaven, and that's reward enough. Plus, you'll be hailed as a hero. He's beloved by many, and his loss will impact many, but only you and you alone can save his life.

Q: Would you give up a kidney to save Pat Robertson, accepting only thanks and national acclaim for your gift? Or would you demand something else? Or would you just let him die?

First off I'm sorry for putting this here, but I need some unbiased opinions!  (Sorry about grammar too, I'm too pissed to care right now)

My recent ex, broke up with me because "he was too busy and wanted to focus on school" and on & on, felt tied down and wanted to flirt with other girls.  You know, "Let's be friends, don't wait for me."  I was a little suspicious and asked if there was someone else, he said no. 

What a fucking cowardice liar.  There is someone else, and he's been with her ever since the day he broke up with me.  His own best friend told me!  What's worse is that it's a girl my ex and I both work with, and she's always been nice to me.  She also has said recently how much she likes me and that I'm a nice girl.  They both told me they want to be my friend...

I want to put them both in their place. 
Should I put them in their place?
 
Should I just let things go because we all work together? 
Even though I said I wouldn't cause drama, should I? 
Or should I just ignore them?
EDIT: What if they apologize?

I'm just pissed because he said he really wanted to be my friend, but he didn't have the balls to be honest.  Which if he was I would've been fine with it and things wouldn't have been this messed up.

Have you ever had a teacher, whether it be college or high school, that you just absolutely could not tolerate?

I think I'm currently taking a class with the worst instructor I've ever had. She never comes to class organized, counts people absent when they are here, and for some reason has difficulty assigning homework. She'll say she's going to assign something, and then change her mind. We'll come to class the next time, and apparently while we were all gone, she changed her mind again and wanted us to do the homework. We use Blackboard. Last weekend, she got online and added more homework, without telling any of us.

At least we get a good laugh at the beginning of class when she mispronounces names. She calls a guy named Jared, JaRod.

I had mine pierced a year ago and it still hasn't healed. My skin still is a little red and puffy and sometimes bleeds or has a gooey discharge. I think it migrated, too, because it's just not very deep in the skin so the barbel moves around a lot, which is probably part of the problem. I think I'm going to have to take it out but I don't want to.

A couple of work related questions:

1. How many vacation days do you get? and do you use them all?
I get 21 vacation days, 10 legal holidays and the week between christmas and new year.
Apparantly I am the only one in this firm who doesn't use them all, I always have days over from the previous year, my coworkers use them all up.
Because of the transfer of last year's days I have 30 normal vacation days.

EDIT: I forgot: whenever a public holiday is on a tuesday or a thursday we usually get monday/friday off as well.

2. What's the most annoying about your workplace?
Two things: apparantly, even after working here for over 3 years people still think I am new and welcome me into the company when they see me.
and the second thing is that I have to talk french for about 80% of the times.

they're really good cookies, and she wants to make a second batch while I'm at class tonight so that she has enough to pass around to her friends.

Pen Pal Gift Exchange Website [Jan. 30th, 2008|06:38 pm]

1) Hey, I once knew of this website that was some sort of gift exchange organizer - where you would sign up for a specific gift exchange that would need to be completed in a specific ammount of time. (i.e., a mix cd for the season) You would randomly be assigned somebody to send a CD to, and then you would get a CD in return from somebody different. There were many variations of this "gift exchange" but anyway, I can't, for the life of me, remember what it's name was... Help? Thanks!

2) I'm writing a paper right now - do you hand write yours out beforehand?

3) What do you think of mysticism?

Spiders Inside Her [Jan. 30th, 2008|06:38 pm]
The Question Club

[fourcorners]
There's an urban legend that states that the average person swallows 8 spiders in their sleep during their lifetime. Think of your own sleep and the variety of 8-legged buggies in your area.

1. Are you more likely to have swallowed something small like this or something a little bigger like this spider?

2. Have you ever woken up to find a funny, possibly a bit fuzzy taste in your mouth? Are there fuzzy spiders where you live?

3. I'm aware that it's an urban legend, but you can't say that it's unlikely that nobody ever swallowed a spider in the middle of the night. Some spiders are drawn to damp areas. Is your nocturnal arachnoid snacking habit directly linked to the spread of malaria and similar diseases which are spread by insects, which you may have aided involuntarily during the night by sparing the lives of dozens of potentially harmful flies from their spidery nemesii?

4. If you feel that #3 hit close to home and that you shoulder some blame for the many deaths worldwide, do you also feel that subconsciously you loathe humanity and wish to see its ruin?

TQC, what are some excellent romance movies that my boyfriend and I could watch for Valentine's Day? We just realized that we've never watched one together, so I'm trying to come up with some suggestions. I refuse to suggest or watch Titanic.

How lame is it that we watch incredible numbers of movies together, but have yet to watch a romance?

He just suggested "Splash." I've never heard of it. If you've seen it (or hell, even if you haven't) what's your opinion of this movie?

I am in this really nifty english satire class. It satisfies the Gordon rule for 3000 words or whatever, and it's just writing about satire and stuff. I have to write an essay on one example of satire. I am pretty sure I want to do the Prince Charles Scandal with Jon Stewart and Colbert from 2001, but I'm not sure yet.

What would you write it on? (I am just interested and would like some ideas, this isn't homework help)

And for those of you who don't care about satire...How was your day?

I missed a week of class thanks to being sick with the flu, and now one of my professors informed me that none of my absences are excused AND she wont let me make up the test I missed, so I'll probably fail the class. I need this class to graduate, but even if I get As on everything from now on I don't know if I'll be able to get higher than a D. Should I just drop the class and retake it next year, or keep taking it now for a low grade?

This isn't really a homework question, although it sounds like it but I would really appreciate all the suggestions you guys think of.

In my Speech class, I have to introduce my partner, Garnett, to the class by telling them something interesting about him. The thing is, he told me he is 'boring' and that I could make something up.

I just know that he's from Jamaica...and is the oldest of 7 children. And that he enjoys drag racing.

I can't think of anything that sounds believable. Any ideas?

I know this is kind of a big and awkward question, but can anyone explain to me what "kind" of Christians Wesleyans are? Like I know they're Protestants and they have the same origins as Methodism (the teachings of John Wesley) etc, this much I have gleaned from wikipedia, but I guess I'm kind of wondering what they might be like socially, politically, etc? I mean I know you can't generalize hugely, but I guess I'm wondering about how liberal they would be, what sort of beliefs they would tend to have on taking the Bible literally, some political issues, what differentiates them from other denominations, etc.

(I've been asked if I would consider teaching at a Wesleyan school, and it's not like a split-second decision I have to make right now (if they even actually offered me the job) but it just got me wondering.)

Credit recapture [Jan. 30th, 2008|10:30 pm]

[ekidno]
[mood |uncomfortableuncomfortable]

Sorry but i need some advice.

In my highschool there is a program called plato where you can recapture credit. Last semester I failed brit lit, i know i'm a retard, but anyways they let me do the credit recapture. There are two sections that are required, one is called i think, writing in the work place, which has a lot to do with english, and another called life skills in work, where it's not really related to english at all, just mainly how to be a good worker and how to find a job and react in situations, but anyways, I did both of the sections, completed them to 100%.

I have an aquaintence who failed the same class, and she had to do credit recapture, the same one. She only did the writing in the workplace one and not the lifeskills. I am really upset with this because they gave her the credit for only doing half of the work. Now my question is, should i go to my counselor and demand that either A: demand an elective credit, B: say she should have to do the second part, or C: let sleeping dogs lie???


OH yeah we have different teachers that monitor credit recapture

i'm so confused i'm upset that i had to do the bullshit course, and she doesn't, what if they let everyone do that in that class?? if anything just make sure the other teacher is aware??? please help :)

edit: alright alright you've got your point across people, don't tell. Sorry if i'm too much of a Nit picker for ya'll, just trying to determine what the right thing to do was, I didn't mean to be a Bitch, i'm sorry everyone.

vaction sitter [Jan. 30th, 2008|11:46 pm]

[jenna_pie]
I've been babysitting for the same family for almost 3 years now. They have 2 kids, almost 4 and about 9 months. Every summer they take me with them on vacation for about a week to their summer home in the mountains. It's hard work, I cook, clean, help with the dogs, and all kinds of stuff. They've always paid me $60-75 a day for the week, which I always thought was great.

Recently I found out that the general rate for sitters on vacation is anywhere from $100-200 a day, which makes a lot more sense to me.

I have sites with rate calculators and suggested prices, and they are around the $100-$200 range, depending on the site. They can definitely afford it, and I feel like I get worked enough to deserve that amount.

So, TQC, how should I go about asking for more money?

EDIT- They pay $10 per hour for normal babysitting, nights out and such

I have Windows Movie Maker on my lap top and I've been trying to make a video now for weeks.

The song will play, and if I'm lucky only half of the pictures will show. Why the hell does this happen?


On another note...

Based on your current and previous relationships, what would you say is/was something that stayed the same through out your whole relationship?

Something that changed?

What about something that got better?

How far into the relationship did you realize things were nothing like the way they were when you started dating, assuming that things are still good - just not like the beginning?
