Yes, The Site is Fucking Broken [UPDATED]

[UPDATE]

I’ve moved the forums OFF of vBulletin and onto a WordPress-centric platform. I was able to move everything as far as I can tell, BUT you may have to reset your password. Also, to see your images, you may have to edit your profile or some shit. Basically I’ve changed things, but it only affects like 5 of us, so I’m reasonably sure we’ll get over it. Plus look… this shit actually works on  your phone/iPad now. That’s worth it, right?

[Original Post]

But the gallery, the forums and the listen page still work. So now you can just shut your whore mouth and use them.

What happened? The theme used for the site, is old, clunky and somewhat buggy on WP3. Has been since WordPress 3 launched. Sometimes it breaks and a little code update fixes it. Now, it’s likely time to just rebuild things, so until then enjoy this generic theme. Use the menu to get around, that’s what it’s for..

Helpful Products

So back when I made the job-quitting comic book, something someone said got my mind working. A boss a level or two up said something like “…what a great way to soften the blow giving bad news!” When going over how the whole thing went later that day, it occurred to me that there is a real need for more fun ways to deliver really bad news. Immediately, I started thinking of products that could be created to help deliver bad news, and here is what I came up with.

For Medical Professionals

There may be very little that is more difficult than delivering bad news to a patient and their family. Not being emotionally attached, you are telling people that they will soon die, maybe even in a very painful fashion. You may even be telling someone’s family that despite your best efforts, you completely failed and now they don’t have a dad, wife or brand new baby. This doesn’t have to be so stressful for you, and who says bad news can’t be a little fun? Continue Reading

Being Professional Does Not Mean Being Boring

I was given a job offer recently, and although I was really ready to make the move from my current position, I really wanted to say something less typical about my departure. –Or at least say it more creatively.

If you search the whole damn inner net of webbed pipes and shit, you’ll find a crap ton of professional view on how a resignation letter should be written, and they’ll all be 90% the same, and 95% bullshit. You are leaving a job, it’s no fucking secret that something better has indeed come along. Many people are very happy and excited to get the fuck out of the cubicle hole they are in, yet they all include things like “It is with a heavy heart”, “…I’ve learned so much from each and every one of you…”,  “…I appreciate the shared knowledge and professionalism…” or “…I’ll still keep the department photo up every night that I stroke it after the new better, hotter and sexier job…”. In the end, it’s boring, nobody cares and everyone knows which part is total crap. If you want to stay professional just send over “Announcement Purpose: Resigning     Effective Date: [insert date here]”  That’s enough to do what you have to do professionally.

Now in searching the whole damn inner net of webbed pipes and asian walrus porn what you will find is creative solutions to quitting your job. If you don’t mind not only burning the bridges, but also the town and all of the daycares that surround it with cute little cooing babies in them. Why are people creative and professional? Why can’t you have fun, and leave on good terms? I say you can… so I did.
