Online casino design fundamentals
by Holly White
Over the years casino designers have learned a great deal about how their customers think and act, and the design of a casino has become a highly refined art. To a large extent this follows the same ethos as designers use when designing a large supermarket.Read More

Featured Video Clip: Best Kitty Hug
I continue my "weight Deletion" journey - I just ran across this pool photo - I believe it was taken on my birthday last year, which is just 51 weeks ago today. My face was much more full - so I grabbed my phone and did a quick selfie. It's a little grainy but gets the point across (it's sort of dark in my office). Today I put on a pair of size 10 cargo shorts - they are snug but I'M IN THEM!

The Recruiting "Treadmill"
I have been on the hunt for steady employment for a few months now. I get sometimes 20 calls per day and as many emails with job descriptions. This is good, right? Not so much...quantity vs. quality is what I am experiencing...BAD quality (mostly).more...
In the late 1700's, many houses consisted of a large room with only one chair. Commonly, a long wide board folded down from the wall, and was used for dining. The 'head of the household' always sat in the chair while everyone else ate sitting on the floor. Occasionally a guest, who was usually a man, would be invited to sit in this chair during a meal. To sit in the chair meant you were important and in charge. They called the one sitting in the chair the 'chair man.' Today in business, we use the expression or title 'Chairman' or 'Chairman of the Board.'

Baptism by Fire - my new job has me building a website in Drupal from scratch. Drupal is a very powerful content management system - but the learning curve is devastating!
This site is HILARIOUS! Do you text and have your phone autocorrect where it just makes no sense whatsoever? This does have strong language and suggestive 'autocorrects' so it's rated R.
Parody site about Life as an IT person, and sometimes work in general. It's multiingual too.
This website is a large collection of stories and anecdotes about clueless computer users. It's a baffling phenomenon that in today's society an individual, who might in other circumstances be considered smart and wise, can sit down in front of a computer screen and instantly lose every last shred of common sense he ever possessed. Complicate this phenomenon with a case of "computerphobia," and you end up with tech support personnel having phone conversations that are funny in retrospect but seem like perfectly valid motives for wild machine gun shooting sprees at the time. And yet, amidst the vast, surging quantities of stupidity are perfectly excusable technological mishaps -- but that are amusing nonetheless. After all, even the best of us engages in a little brainless folly every once in a while.
