I love Billy.

Billy, I suspect, is the only person that keeps us all from murdering each other.  Seriously, I have never had a crew as whiny, bitchy, and hateful as this one.  The only person nobody hates is Billy.  He's like having fucking Dondi on the crew.  Nobody wants to disappoint him.
OMG, Billy is your Captain Carrot. this makes you the Samuel Vimes of Tucson.

And my doc got me worried about 6.1 A1c  :argh!:

You should be worried if it's above 5.7.

You can now act like a diabetic most of the time, or let it slide and BE a diabetic ALL the time.

Fortunately, since I got that result we've had to eat like diabetics anyways because my wife got the whole gestational diabetes thing.

That's an honest shame, since it seemed like you had found a good place for you, after the disaters what befell you with Jim, et al.

It's still good, work-wise.  I am constantly having to stretch, to learn new things.  I have increased my knowledge of water chemistry and discovered the joys of the SQL/SCADA databases.

The people - with a few exceptions - being a bunch of whiners is just one of the drawbacks caused by God not letting me have nice things without Him pooping on them first.  On the plus side, he's apparently pissing in the chilled water tanks.

Continue those habits.

You'll be amazed what happens - if you already haven't noticed it - to your senses of taste and smell when all the corn syrup is out of your diet.

Somehow, I never viewed myself as a protagonist.   :lulz:

SQL is a beautiful monster, that gets progressively more complex the deeper you look into how it works until eventually you've been looking through index execution plans and you see Azathoth looking back.

SCADA is amazing, when it's not being managed by a single point failure running on some 1970's mainframe that the only person who knew how it runs died in the dot com bubble burst, which has been the only kind I have ran into in industry.

Our two SQL geeks won a staring match with the abyss.  Seriously, they're both wrong, and have no business in our universe.

Our Scada system is Delta.  We're basically running a gigantic operation on air conditioning software.  You might think this would be a dumb idea.  And you'd be right.

Single point failure is the entire situation I inherited.

Fortunately, the new bosses are all about spending money.  I can fix anything, if you give me money and time.

So the vile taste of rootbeer helps with the vile taste of stevia. That does not mean I will buying this shit, but at least now this fucking can of hell juice will stop screaming at me like the BRIDGES.

We don't fix that which isn't broken.

Sad to say, after many years, The Frost Heaves have broken up.  No acrimony, just run its course.

I'll be curating and uploading various albums, demos, remixes, and the like over at http://frostheaves.bandcamp.com.

Current mood: sad, but resigned to it.

Sorry to hear that LMNO.

That wasn’t the only band you were in though, was it?
