clientsfromhell:

I am a freelance Network/Systems Designer. I was contacted by a statistics lab at a university I attended. They asked if I could make time for an interview.

They wanted to build a moderately sized cluster for the department’s faculty/grad students. We did a phone interview, and man, they talked the talk. They wanted a Beowulf, they had bought a bulk order of 100 systems, and they had all the networking equipment. This sounded excellent, so I flew out about a week later to assemble everything.

We sat down in a conference and everyone seemed to know exactly what they wanted. Before signing the contract I asked to see the purchased equipment.

I’m so glad I did.

Me: Hm. We have a bit of a problem.

Client: Anything you need, we can fix. We have some remaining room in the budget.

Me: Alright, here’s the issue, there are three completely different sets of computers here. We have Sun SPARC systems, Mac PPC systems, and surprisingly new Dell systems. We can only use one of those sets, unless you return the whole lot and we start over.

Client: What?! Why?! You told us this would be easy!

Me: If you can’t return it, that’s fine. We have the dells that we can use, you just wont get all 100 into the cluster. If you want to add more, then as you’re able, you can buy new nodes. I can teach a faculty member or someone from IT to—

Client: Wait, wait. I think I have a solution. So we can’t use the Dells, Suns, and Macs together right?

Me: Yes because the proc—

Client: We can get someone in here to paint Dell on all of them. Problem solved!

silly silly little comic

Ladies, gentlemen, and other gentlepeople: my girlfriend’s ‘silly little comic’

Oh my fucking gods this is perfect

This makes me smile 

dragon came from water not fire
woman rebelled to save other woman
other woman didn’t need saving and could hold her own
dragon wasn’t killed
political scams
interracial lesbian relationship
there is not one thing about this I don’t like. 10/10 fuck yeah

I just realized that she said she’s studying alternative cures for magical stasis. Magical stasis as in sleeping curses. She is researching how to rescue sleeping princesses without needing a bullshit True Love’s kiss because she knows how shitty it is to sit around waiting for some hero to rescue her.

Perfect comic is perfect

This is it. The war on feeble-minded religious human cattle begins today. This war will not be fought with guns, bayonets, and bibles, but with debates, class, and most importantly.. intelligence.

liberal social justice is saying “don’t discriminate against poor people” instead of “why are people poor in the fucking first place”

Marx bros yapping about the structural causes of poverty while refusing to listen to any poor people.

also a problem. i used to go to swp meetings when i was in high school and they would say shit like “i spoke to a worker yesterday..” and i’d be sitting there thinking what?? a real one?? how did you catch it?
