Nov 12th, 2010, 09:45 pm - Another to add to the unemployment list
A few days ago my co-worker was let go from the company. I had been notified by the head cheese a day prior to this and I felt a bit uncomfortable knowing that he would be gone the next day. It was somewhat troubling the day before because the co-worker had been commenting how he had just had his last barbeque over the weekend, and that it would be the last bbq until the next summer. I was told that though this person had been brought on for some very specific projects he had not proven he would be anymore valuable after those projects were over. I can see where the boss was going with this because there were a number of mistakes this person had made that were slowly adding up and causing the company some stress. Though, at the same time a lot of this person's mistakes could have been avoided by the boss not assigning so many tasks. I know you tend to lose track of a few things or not accomplish a duty efficiently if you are concerned about another errand at the same time. This person was a bit advanced in age, so if you think about it, it makes sense that he wouldn't physically be capable of managing so many items at one time. I worked with this person for around 4 months and it appears he only joined up about a month before I did. This man was a pretty cool guy. In his younger days, he developed some very popular video games such as "The Bard's Tale 3" in the late 90s early 90s for Interplay until that studio went under. I don't know what he's going to do now. Who will hire him? What can he do in his advanced age? Not that he's physically impaired, but he does have lots of gray hair. I don't know how he was informed, but at the end of the day when the boss went out he mentioned to me in a pained voice, "well this is good bye" to which I could only pretend to ask "huh what do you mean?"







"He's letting me go...and this is my last day. It's been nice working with you."







And now his desk is empty.

I dared to eat a peach.

And in honor of the Great Commoner, I reverse the order.  The chicken, and then the egg!

May 25th, 2007, 01:36 pm - Azia
Hmmmah. By this time I'm going to assume that almost everyone has heard of the situation surrounding her Standford escapade. So, what remains now will be the flurry of news stories, comments, blog posts, etc. discussing her, discussing Standford, discussing her friends, discussing our high school, and hopefully someone somewhere will take the initiative to look at the socio-economic factors and consequences surrounding this. Now, I'd like to point for those keeping score, that this is the second alumni from Troy that's been in the news this year (Karishma's death, being the first).

All right then. The information out right now, thank you Standford newspaper, is somewhat biased and I believe most of the news stories circulating have used that paper as a source, which of course had a certain taint to it. There isn't sufficient data. I will say this, we all should all refrain from doing the "check her mental stability" and "zomg asian parents" as well as the "lawlz, let's let her into Standford" and "Amy Zhou is oversexed loool!1" cart wagons until we get her story directly from Azia. We have no concrete idea to the motives behind this, and thus we shouldn't have any firm comments based on the speculation flying around. If anyone wants to take a look at the flurry of discussion, I invite you to check out Standford's article http://daily.stanford.edu/article/2007/5/24/imposterCaught and take careful look at the variety of comments. As you can see, lots of people jumping to conclusions, some people from /b/ on 4chan, people from Berkeley of all places, Ivy Leaguers, parents, fellow students, friends, enemies, random anonymous. From a completely observational point of view, there's a lot of great data to be gained from watching how the various parties respond to each other.

I do believe she needs to pay for the unauthorized trespassing charge, since well, no matter what, she did trespass. I can see someone already bothered to mention that Azia will now be marked in history for this and that her life, depending how this situation is handled, will undoubtedly be in the hands of outside forces.

The one thing I can almost guarantee is that this appears to be the product of Asian Parents, and social attitudes concerning the Model Minority.

<sarcasm>And to top it off, I'd to congratulate those of you on Facebook and Wikipedia who were so quick to start spreading her name on the internet.</sarcasm>



EDIT: Actually, the Wiki entry seems to have been deleted.

EDIT:  Also, Stanford seems to have covered up a letter written by a Standford student. Reprinted below along with a blogger's comment:

Dear Ms. Azia Kim . . .

I tip my hat to you. Many of us actual Stanford students read your story in awed delight yesterday, but I for one saw through the carefully orchestrated deceit to the underlying genius of your plan. You are an American heroine for managing to pull a fast one on so many of us who considered ourselves the best and the brightest. Turning lemons into lemonade — or rather, I should say, a free college education — is no easy feat, but you, Ms. Azia Kim are a mastermind, deserving to be ranked up there with Frank Abagnale and D.B. Cooper as one of the greatest con artists of the 20th century.

The only drawbacks to your plan were the potential ramifications for your roommate from Okada — her parents just found out that their daughter was sleeping with her boyfriend so much that she practically wasn’t even in the room they were paying for. Oy. I know my parents would kill me. I can’t even imagine what hers will do to her.

Apr 1st, 2007, 06:07 pm - MG GM (not Type C)
Okay, so I decided to do an Out Of Box kit for once, since I didn't really have time to work on the Wing over Spring Break.  So, I popped open one of the older MG kits I had lying around, the GM.  It's based on the old RX78 1.0 frame, and has the same seam line problems, but I love the BEECRAFT rendition on it (it's not overtly different like the other BEECRAFT redesigns).
