Follow-up: Con-way 'Reduction in Force'

Brief follow-up:
There was a short article in The Oregonian on the layoffs at Con-way Enterprise Services (Portland campus) this last week. I am still around, but my wife was one of those laid off.
Speculations about these matters are always dangerous, but I will stick my neck out and opine that we have not seen the end of layoffs on the Portland campus. We will see what next year brings.

Con-way closures this weekend

This is a big weekend for Con-way Freight: some forty service centers across the country are closing. <Link to one of the representative articles on the subject.>
The Portland campus of Con-way Enterprise Services (the IT and Admin arm of Con-way) will see job losses next week. Many of my co-workers are understandably anxious, and it has been a major topic of conversation this week.

Portland Werewolf Poem

I used this a couple of months ago during a game of Werewolf at the Lucky Lab when my fellow villagers accused me of being a werewolf. Inexplicably, I was still lynched.

I Am Not A werewolf.

A werewolf? Nay, a mere cobbler I.
Content to make solid boots
For my stolid fellow villagers.

A werewolf? Nay, would that I were.
Not for me the taste of blood in the night.
Or soft flesh torn by my pitiless fangs.
Nor the smell of fear on the night air
As my pitiful shrieking victim haplessly flees.

A Werewolf? I? Nay, yet were I wolf
There would be not a man among you safe
From my hideous lust for blood.
My accusers, you are mere lumpen bags of meat.
Yet I am one of you, I swear.

On some users

The (insert your favorite user here) Factor: a common phenomenon in technical support, in which a user (often petulantly) reports a problem, but claims to be too busy to troubleshoot the issue or to provide any meaningful information. These users enjoy being in the role of Victim: not only are they able to be the victim of computer problems, but they can also claim to suffer from IT harassment (for information) or IT neglect (because tech support cannot resolve the problem… the same problem about which they will give no information.) Common phrases include, “How long will this take? I don’t have time for this!” and terse emails (usually with upper management copied in) that simply say things like, “It still doesn’t work!!!” or “This is still a problem!!?”

Here's a rather charming postal mail story

This Sunday Independent article shows the UK post office at its best, I think:
We may be living in the era of the email, but one young illustrator has proved that the art of correspondence is far from dead. While working for her degree at Glasgow School of Art Harriet Russell decided to find out exactly what lengths the men and women of the Royal Mail were willing to go to to ensure the safe delivery of her missives.
To put them to the test she concealed the addresses of 130 letters to herself in a series of increasingly complex puzzles and ciphers. Among the disguises she employed were dot-to-dot drawings, anagrams and cartoons. The answer, it seems, was very far indeed. Amazingly, only 10 failed to complete their journey back to her.

Excellent postcard practical joke - return of the baboon

The backstory:
When I was back in South Africa about five years ago, my family and I had a close encounter with a baboon. We were having a picnic at Cape Point, parked by the side of the road. I was outside the car, wandering around, while my two sisters and mother were inside, munching their sandwiches. I noticed a big, ugly, hairy baboon loping towards the car and high-tailed it back inside, all the while shouting to my sister to close the front door.

Alas, she was somewhat slow on the uptake and the baboon made it in the car. He climbed over my sister and stationed himself between the two front seats. He growled at me, his ugly face and fangs just about a foot away from mine. He then grabbed our sandwiches, and made away, my mother by that time having opened up the other front door.

Bloody baboons.

So out of the blue last week, I get this postcard from Stratford-Upon-Avon, scanned here.

(I pixellated the first line of my address. The text reads: Long time no see! I left S Africa, found job randomly hitting typewriter keys for this playwright... England is nice except the food. I miss your sandwiches! Love, the babboon." I love the dodgy (baboon-like?) handwriting.

It gave me a heck of a kick to get. I wondered who the heck pulled off this excellent jape until A- admitted to it. Apparently his chum J- was in England on holiday, and A- got him to mail it off.
A fine jape. Damn fine.

Bloody baboons.

July Top 10

July Top 10

My favourite movies, books, lectures, etc. for the month of July, most of which is probably old to the rest of you.

10. Stop Messin' About: A Tribute to Kenneth Williams. BBC Radio.
Excerpts from wonderful old radio shows Round The Horne, Just A Minute, Big and Little, Kenneth Williams Playhouse, and others. Of special note is the reading of Gogol's Diary of a Madman, done with great skill and sensitivity.

Got it via Bittorrent.

9. Female Jungle (1955)
Lawrence Tierney plays a hard boiled and hard drinking detective, who investigates the murder of an up-and-coming young actress. But did he himself kill the actress while drunk? He can't remember and it is eating at him. Directed by Bruno VeSoto.
I rented this one largely because it also starred Jayne Mansfield, who is one of my favourite blond bombshells of that era. Boy, she was a looker.
Rented from Movie Madness.

8. In Bruges (2008)
Ray: There's a Christmas tree somewhere in London with a bunch of presents underneath it that'll never be opened. And I thought, if I survive all of this, I'd go to that house, apologize to the mother there, and accept whatever punishment she chose for me. Prison...death...didn't matter. Because at least in prison and at least in death, you know, I wouldn't be in fuckin' Bruges. But then, like a flash, it came to me. And I realized, fuck man, maybe that's what hell is: the entire rest of eternity spent in fuckin' Bruges. And I really really hoped I wouldn't die. I really really hoped I wouldn't die.

Saw it at the Laurelhurst Theatre.

7. Mongol (2007)
The sets and costuming were magnificent. What a visual feast this film was! And their interpretation of the Genghis Khan story wasn't bad either.

Saw it at the Hollywood Theatre

6. Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
I'm not much of a book reviewer. And, chances are that everyone has already read Kafka on the Shore so that I am coming into the game. Suffice it to say that admirers of Tim Powers' work will dig this.

5. Revolver (2005)
I always enjoy Guy Ritchie's movies. One of these days I'll even watch those with Madonna in them.
Andre Benjamin and Vincent Pastore take the newly released from prison Jason Statham as an unknowing chela. With London's gangster underworld as the matrix, they gradually lead him into enlightenment. And make a hell of a lot of cash on the way. A rollicking good tale, reminiscent of Shawshank Redemption. Well, they both featured convicts, anyway.

Rented it through Netflix.

4. Portland Werewolf
This month, I played Werewolf (link goes to game rules) for the first time, and a damn good time it was too. I am looking forward to honing my skills in this month's game.
Portland Werewolf meets every month in the back room of the Lucky Labrador brewpub in SE Portland. This month there was around 24 or so people, which I was told was more than usual. It started at around 7 PM, and there was time for three games. I was a villager each time, dagnab it. Here's hoping that I'll draw the werewolf card at least once next time.
I took this photo during the third game, towards the end of the evening. I had already been quite unfairly lynched.
Portland Werewolf July -3

3. No Country For Old Men (2007)
Never have I seen a movie that was so perfectly cast. Tommy Lee Jones as the sheriff, Javier Bardem as Chigurh, Josh Brolin as Moss - all brilliant. And of course the Academy agreed.
I had devoured the book with relish, so avoided seeing the film for a little while so as not to be disappointed with the adaptation. The screen treatment rarely lives up to the original book, after all. But the Coen Brothers were sensitive to the text, even keeping the word for word dialogue in many scenes.
Rented from Movie Madness.

2. Mark Shuttleworth's lecture hosted by Legion of Tech
Shuttleworth is a fellow Capetonian, a home boy made good. Coming into serious money through his sale of Thawte corporation, he has set about doing something worthwhile with it. He is the driving force behind Ubuntu linux, which is more responsible for any other distribution for bringing the goodness of linux to the average desktop user. Apart from that, he is also the first African cosmonaut.
His talk, at the Mission Theatre, was very well attended. He started off with his space experiences, then moved on to speaking about Ubuntu. Shuttleworth is a naturally relaxed and articulate speaker, and his entire talk was extemporaneous. I found it inspiring.
Audio of the talk can be found here.
I took a few photos, but they all came out crappy. So here's one from the Legion of Tech site.

1. Johnny Cash: the Last Great American (2004)
This was a documentary made by BBC TV, and covers Cash's entire career. Worth it for the archival footage alone, this portray of the great man was both penetrating and sympathetic. Complementary without glossing over his weak points and darker side.
I blogged about the video previously here. Highly bloody recommended.

Service recommendation: Postful

"Almost half the adult population in the US is rarely or never online. Globally the numbers are closer to 80%." says Postful. One of these is my folks that are never on line is my Mum. I still write her regular physical letters and postcards, her not really wise in the ways of email.
Postful has proven to be extremely useful to me, and I highly recommend their services. Basically it allows you to compose an email to postful, put the physical address of the recipient in the subject line, and they will print it out and mail it off. The price is quite reasonable, and they send internationally too.

How IT Support teams usually get engaged: an analogy

Bob works in a general fix-it shop. He handles all riding lawnmower repair. One day the owner comes to him and announces that he is also going to be handling any bobcat backhoes that come in for repair.

Bob points out to the owner that he doesn’t really know much about bobcats.

“Sure you do!” the owner retorts. “Bobcats are things you sit in, have four wheels, and are smaller than a Sherman tank. Just like riding mowers. Perfect for you! Besides, I just got this big contract with Grundy corporation to do all their bobcat repair. They’ll be delivering four broken ones in an hour. Can’t back out now!”

“Well, heck, do you have an repair manuals?” asks a downcast Bob.

The owner seems a little confused. “Repair manuals? Huh. I didn’t think you’d need any, talented guy like you. But I think I saw an old one page photocopy called ‘Bobcat starter motor problems.’ That should give you everything that you need!”

A couple of hours later Bob is up to his elbows in bobcat engine oil, quietly weeping.

BBC Johnny Cash bio

  • I watched the BBC documentary Johnny Cash: The Last Great American last night, and recommend it very highly indeed. It is a sympathetic and penetrating study of this great man. Containing large amounts of archival footage, it also features interviews with Rosanne Cash, John Carter Cash, Rick Rubin, Kris Kristofferson, Little Richard, and others.
    I was fortunate enough to see Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash front stage at the 1997 Telluride Bluegrass Festival. It was certainly one of the highlights of my life. (Cash was followed on that ocsassion by Ashley McIsaac, who put on one hell of a show.)

Saturday, June 28, 2008 randomizer

  • I used to enjoy bringing up random web pages through Stumbleupon, but I got a bit tired of all the pictures of sunsets, lists (10 Strange Houses, 15 Stupid Criminals, etc etc) that you had to wade through before getting something more interesting and substantive.
    Now I usually use the randomizer button to get a random site that has been bookmarked. I did a slight tweak to the URL, changing it from to ...min=1, so that I would not be just getting the more popular bookmarks.
    Does anyone know how I could change the URL so that I could use the whole database instead of just the recent bookmarks?

Life Imitating Powers

I just posted the following to the Tim Powers Yahoogroup:
One of the my favourite themes in Last Call was the idea that events in the subtler realms manifest themselves via patterns in the material world. So we have Georges Leon looking for the best times to attack Siegel by looking at patterns in stock market data, Ozzie paying attention to poker hands, the smoke puddling over the middle of the table. And of course the dramatic scene with Arky, Dondi Snayheever, and Ray Joe Pogue at Lake Mead. Great stuff!

These same principles seem to be at work in Princeton's Global Consciousness Project. (At least, that's what I get out of it. I'm not enough of a statistician or scientist to speak with authority.) From the wikipedia page (

"The research examines the output of some 65 networked hardware random number generators located around the world. The remote devices have been dubbed Princeton Eggs, where EGG is short for electrogaiagram, a portmanteau of electroencephalogram and Gaia. The general hypothesis holds that events that have a significant human impact may affect the randomness of the data from these generators in a statistically significant way.

Roger D. Nelson developed the project as an extrapolation of two decades of experiments from the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Lab (PEAR) which repeatedly show that electronic noise-based, truly random number generators (RNG or REG) seem to be intentionally influenced to bring about a less random sequence of data - in other words, that human intention can reduce natural entropy and create greater coherence within a random series of events.

In an extension of the laboratory research called "FieldREG", investigators examined the outputs of REGs in the field, before, during and after highly focused or coherent group events. The group events studied include intense psychotherapy sessions, captivating theater presentations, religious rituals, popular sports competitions, like Football World Cup, and high-interest television broadcasts like the Academy Awards..."

Now that's rather interesting stuff. As I say, I don't have much knowledge in this field, so for all I know it is just mumbo-jumbo. But it's coming out of Princeton, rather than Fred's Garage Academy of Parapsychology, so perhaps it's worth paying attention to.

Court case: android head of Philip K. Dick lost

  • This wonderful legal document, David Hanson and Hanson Robotics vs America West Airlines, is well worth the read. It involves the loss of "an artistically and scientifically valuable robotic head modeled after famous science fiction author Philip K. Dick" on a flight from Texas to San Francisco.
    Throughout this document are wonderful passages that deviate from the usual dry legal speak. My favourite: "Perhaps because he had just woken up, Plaintiff lacked the total recall to remember to retrieve the Head from the overhead bin."
