Tea Party Plan To Win

Hey All:
I’m partially uploading this so I can read it, but also because I thought others might like the info.


Internet Racism

Hey everyone:

You know, a lot of folks still believe that the Internet is some sort of utopia. There’s this idea that everything is equal. That no one knows who you are, so no one is hateful, or racist, or anything mean. Well, anyone who’s ever wandered through a comments section, especially on Yahoo, knows this just isn’t so.

On the site Womanist Musings, I saw a video today that puts it into context. Here it is:

The Real Cat Burglar

Wow..What the Heck?

Apparently in February 2011, a local ABC news affiliate covered a story about a cat. This cat, Dusty, goes out at night and steals stuff from his neighbors houses. It doesn’t seem to matter what, as long as he can drag it home. The strangest part to me is..well actually, the whole thing is a bit odd. The neighbors seem really laid back about it. “Oh, we know where to find our stuff..” and Dusty’s humans keep a whole area filled with the things he takes spread out, waiting for them to be reclaimed.

They have a lot of stuff no one has come to get yet. I guess they don’t want to claim the underwear. 🙂

But ABC wasn’t the only group to do a show. Animal Planet dropped by, set up some night vision cameras, and actually caught Dusty on video dragging things down the street. So, for your entertainment and what in the world purposes, I present ABC and Animal Planet telling the tale of Dusty, the real life cat burglar.

Review: Tweet My Jobs

Hey everybody:

So I’m back looking for work, and it’s not going very well. I’ve had a couple of interviews, but nothing’s really panning out. I know the same thing is going on with a lot of people who stop by my blog, so I thought I’d bend your ear to this new resource today.

Tweetmyjobs.com is pretty awesome so far! I got to upload and edit a resume. And before you groan, I have to tell you, TweetMyJobs has the best resume populator I’ve EVER seen! They actually got 90% of my information put in the right spot from the start. That’s never happened before.

They also seem to have really great inroads somehow. I just applied for a job with RiteAid that I never would have seen on Craigslist, but they tweeted it right to me through one of their channels I’m following. Of course, it also never occurred to me to apply for RiteAid. I think that’s probably another function they fulfill: expanding your brain. Sometimes when the hunt starts to get harsh, folks get tunnel vision.

Anyway, I HIGHLY recommend you hit up this site. Here’s a look at my new resume as an example: http://www.tweetmyjobs.com/resume/lincolnr

Understanding BitTorrent

Okay, I know BT has been around forever, but I’m just starting to use it, so I can’t be the only person on the Internet trying to figure it out. Hence this quick post.

Here’s their video giving us the quick overview:


And for a little extra fun, a T-Mobile/AT&T style mock commercial comparing Bit Torrent download capabilities with ITunes.
