by the way he was a shitty manager. "someone" left my cake out in the rain. Dont leave this guy in charge of making a newspaper old. He will leave your infant child in a hot car to expire and sing dumb songs like "someone left my child in a car, dont know why it got so goddamn oven HOT"

I would like to take this opportunity to apply a name to the event you described.

I kinda think my application of this Proper Noun is a nexxus of art and science.

Art is what we type into these incarnations of BBS. Science is the code developed by teenagers to present it back to a screen for others.

I call the situation of typing in a lengthy heart felt or science based (i dont use hyphens today) post, email, blog, whatever long content, ONLY TO HAVE IT EVAPORATE...

a(n) MacArthur Park.

What is a MacArthur Park? Quite simply, it is the result of typing in a very wordy, yet internally edited by the contributor, work of linguistic art by the same contributor, only to have a technological mistake or bug destroy it. Upon the author's realization that their hour long non-compulsory 500 word composition has vanished as a result of poor client configuration, server side errors, connectivity interruptions, or even substance indulgence, it is most likely that the very same author will abandon further comment, or, in lesser instances, post a generic statement, i.e. "I hate it when that happens." In reduced baseline expression this can be accepted as the author's way of indirectly saying "Fuck it".

My selection of editor nomenclature as MacArthur Park for this phenomenom is most likely a result of being born in the early 1970s.

Years and years of hearing the song and thinking "ITS JUST A FUCKING CAKE..."

A feature of commodore bbs packages like image and cnet and most notably cbase could be configured to dump the 8192 bytes of memory in the message editor space to a raw textfile. This was added as a feature simply because we were hosting boards in the states and the euros were phreaking to get to them and carrier losses were expected on every call.

I vaguely rememeber ABBS amiga being able to do the same. Its amazing how much guard we let down when the analog modem went out with the trash.

I'm pretty sure that Cit-86 and some of the other Sacramento Citadel variants would save your buffer on a carrier loss, eventually - too.

It happens on Facebook too. Pro-tip. If you start noticing you're off on a rant... cut and paste your current buffer into NOTEPAD on your local machine, and finish the thought there, saving locally. That way, if something goes wrong online, you just need to cut and paste.

I had literally consigned myself to the idea, "It will be 2 weeks with not a single log in other than Russian Bots and you. You're paying $15 a month for this, if there isn't at least one new message from someone outside, hit the kill switch," before I logged in. 

You just saved The Santiarium, TheDave. Well done.

I really miss when we had just a bit more traffic - but I don't want to invite strangers here from other social media sites. The wrong type of person is sure to show up. 

I think that is the major problem. All the right kind of people showed up, but they've all dropped off the fucking planet. They don't even do Facebook anymore.

My boss put me in a sales position. Dumb mistake. I'm a much better marketing professional than sales professional. Yes, I can sell. But it wears on me. I'm much better at writing cracking ad copy and identifying the motivation of the audience. Lately I've been having fun writing verions of pitch scripts that target the different motivational hormones. Oxytocin for bonding, serotonin for status, endorphins for excitement and just plain dopamine for pleasure. It's fun to rework a whole landing page to target moms or jocks or grandfathers. The offers I get nowadays are for 90k, but I have to turn them down because we're working through my wife's anxiety issues. I hope I can get her back on talk therapy before the winter blues. It would be nice to have a social life again.

I'm doing dispatch of DME goods to patients. Lots of them speak Spanish, and my first solo call with no safety net was Mandarin... a pissed off old Chinese man. 

I kinda dig working through a translator though - and with Spanish, I listen along carefully and pick more and more of it up. 

Hopefully this gig lasts a while. If I'm good at it, hopefully they decide to make me permanent. 

I do this thing with every job, where I start it going, "this is insane, there is no way I can handle it..." 

Then I start hitting it out of the ballpark, and I become a rock star. 

Then they start getting upset because they get it in their head that even though I already do more than they expected, there is even MORE that I can do, or that I've started holding back on doing all that I was doing originally. 

But... they don't want to give me a fat raise or a promotion or anything like that. They just want me to give them more, while they give me the same as they started. 

Then things go bad.

You really should take it and let Pace know that it's because he changed your job on you without your consent.  He needs to learn that people want to do the job he hired them for, not "whatever I feel like your job is this week".

If Pace fires you before Christmas after he promised he wouldn't, I'm going to burn his entire life to the ground, starting with a call to the IRS about his creative accounting.

Clair will be happier with you having more money and a job that doesn't pull the rug out from under people.
