Title: "What is wrong with you people?"
Post by: Gen. Dreedle on June 04, 2010, 08:07:02 AM
OK, I know, you think this is another rant on why I can't stand DIYers.

Hate to disappoint you, but it isn't. (Stay tuned: one is probably not too far behind!) No, it is just about "what is wrong with you people" in general.

A person, that is unknown to everyone here (and will remain so), is the Yearbook adviser/instructor at a local middle school (7th- and 8th-grade, for those of you in Rio Linda.) This was their first year to do that. They were dropped into that position, after the staff was already in place. (The only thing I can think of worse than working with 7th-grade girls is to have to work with 7th-grade girls that you did not get to choose.)

Well, despite all of that, the Yearbook came out very well. The students all seemed to love it. The other teachers and faculty thought it looked good. Everyone had good things to say about it.

Except one parent.

Nope. Seems this miserable cretin was very upset that there were not enough "candid, action shots" of her precious little pookie. Mind you, she was not upset that there weren't enough photos of little pookie: just that they were not "candid action" photos.

Why was that so troubling?

Because there were several other "candid, action shots" of some other little pookie. My, my...............we have nothing better to do than kvetch our little pookie did not get represented as the perfect little jock. No, that honor went to some other spoiled little brat. So, little pookie will go through life, his fragile ego having been crushed, because when folks pull out the 8th-grade Yearbook, you won't find enough "candid, action shots" of him. No, that honor went to someone else. Who, by happenstance, will be propelled into an adulthood of unbridled success. All because he had more "candid, action shots", way back in 8th grade.

Ok..........so to the mother of poor little pookie...........................

What is wrong with you people?

But, that is not the end of the story!

Nope, still there will be more.

Mother of poor little pookie was told that poor little pookie could bring back the Yearbook, and his money would be refunded.

"No, we want to keep the Yearbook."

Oh, so it really isn't that bad. You still want to keep it. Just kvetch, after the fact, that a bunch of 7th- and 8th-grade girls didn't capture the essence of little pookie in action. And the Yearbook adviser wasn't smart enough to know who should have been King Turd of Pooh Mountain, when it came to 8th-grade athletics.

Give me a break. You don't have anything more important to do with your life? Un-friggin' real.

OK, for those of you who may be more perceptive than the average reader, you will realize that next year, poor little pookie will be a Freshman in high school. Do you think the Seniors on the Yearbook staff are going to give a rat's rear end about how many "candid, action shots" there are of poor little pookie, on the Frosh jock pages. Really? Do you think they are really going to worry about that?

Maybe little pookie ought to have Mommy pin a note on his collar, so he can march down to the Yearbook staff, and present them with a warning from Mommy. Don't you think that will go over well? Especially with the Seniors, who won't be around to hear Mommy kvetch, yet again, one more year!

What really is wrong with you people?

Poor little pookie....................destined to a life of mediocrity, all because there were not enough "candid, action shots" of him in all of his little jock glory.

Wonder how he would handle something really serious. Like cancer.

Mommy will tell that nasty cancer to go away!

OK, I thought it was made clear:

Registration is disabled. You have to send an e-mail to the address that is posted.

OK, so far, the only people who have demonstrated they can read have also shown they don't understand.

Yes, hard to believe: the people who have figured out what that address is, and have sent an e-mail to it, are people I would not let join if my life depended on it.

OK, it doesn't, but my sanity does. Why on earth would people who give me crap on other forums want to join here? Mind you, by using "people", this implies that more than one person has done so. (I'm sure they are reading this, and are probably taking solace in knowing they are not the only person who has gotten on my nerves. Already. Thanks. I can not tell you how much I appreciate the thought. Now get lost, and don't bug me again!)

This begs other questions:

How did you find this place?
Why were you looking for it?
What were you looking for?
Why did you think you would find it here?
And just what the hell is your problem, anyway?

What is so fascinating about me and my quirks that it draws people I don't really care for, to search out all the details of my strange existence?

Pookie, indeed.

The resident school teacher in the house teaches 6th grade.  (Imagine the kvetching I listen to...)

She has pointed out to me that in all her years of teaching at about that grade level, not a single college admissions person has ever checked up on the pookies of the world.  Not one.

It makes me think that college admissions people aren't doing a thorough enough job.  What else could it be?

Here is one I don't get, on multiple levels.

I see Google searches for something called:

"powered by SMF"

I have no idea what that is all about. Even less how it finds "us".

But.................

If you add:

seafood watch (no quotation marks), on page 6, at the very bottom, there "we" are!

How desperate are you to look for something powered by SMF (yeah, I know "we" are a Simple Machine Forum), that you would scroll through 6 pages of worthless Google hits, just to see what we are all about? You mean we are so popular, more so than all the other SMF forums?

And seafood? (Yeah, it may have something to do with Blowtorch!), but once again, I ask:

"What is wrong with you people?"

Well, whatever it is, keep it up! Lots of free entertainment, for one and all.

(BTW, something about "anal cavity search" is #3. Ick!)

(OK, I had to check it out.................probably just a run-of-the-mill butt-burglar porno flick.)
Title: OK, I am really starting to worry about some of you people
Post by: Gen. Dreedle on July 04, 2010, 12:48:12 PM
Specifically, some guy who is dangerously close to El Segundo.

Why would anyone Google "Because I hate you guys. I hate you guys so very, very much"?

Yet, one of you did.

And I am proud to announce we are #2 on Google. Higher than Southparkstuff.com!

So, in hopes of moving to Number 1, on yet another pointless Google search:

I hate you guys. I hate you guys, so very, very much. And I will not rest my tired Confederate bones until I am number one on every Google search. Because I hate you guys.

Yours,
Gen. Cartman Lee

Kick me in my ugly stupid fat ass, but I don't understand all this circus and hunt for Blowtorch schematic.

People interested in BT schematic should start reading Borbely's articles The New Frontiers, Part 1 and Part 2 and start bulding things like this http://www.raylectronics.nl/outputstage_en.html (http://www.raylectronics.nl/outputstage_en.html) to understand basics.

Then proceed to this http://www.borbelyaudio.com/pics/305borbely-new.pdf (http://www.borbelyaudio.com/pics/305borbely-new.pdf) to understand about cascoding JFETs.

Quick look on Pavel Macura Audio page http://web.telecom.cz/macura/diyaudio/jfetdist.htm (http://web.telecom.cz/macura/diyaudio/jfetdist.htm) should clear things out.

Another look on Uskok preamplifier http://www.moxtone.com/Uskok.htm (http://www.moxtone.com/Uskok.htm) and after that everything should be crystall clear  ;D

If they are not satisfied, some early John Curl's designs can be found here: http://www.marklev.com/JC2/index.html (http://www.marklev.com/JC2/index.html) and after that they should be able to design Blowtorch by themself, no need to hunt down John Curl for schematics  ;D ;D  ;D

Power supply design left for another time.

DIYers are really lazy. Not only do they want the schematics, they want them all in a nice, tidy package. Too much work to go out and find something that will help them understand how it works, and make their own version.

I summed it up, before. So, here it is, again, in one nice tidy package:

Quote
Some of you not only want the Seafood Platter of the Day, but you want someone to shovel the food into your mouth. What are you going to ask for next: have us chew it for you before we shovel it into your mouth?

Pretty much sums up what I think of audio DIYers, and why I can not stand to deal with them, any further.

No, nothing wrong with you. you have a brain, and are not afraid to use it.

Or calculate how much Miller feedback loads down the input Z of a circuit. You will recall, we got answers that ranged from "not at all" to "that only applies to op-amps". In-friggin'-credible.

There is a new wrinkle, in our "what do people search for" contest. Seems that they are now Googling, the dreaded blowtorch preamp schematics thread by.......................

The forum's topic #. (Which is #17, in case any of you are interested. Which, you really shouldn't be.) But, anyway, that thread seems to be taking on a life of its own.

Which goes to prove me point: who needs SEO, when you have the right meta words. Pick the right one, and you can create a forum, out of thin air.

Even if it is based on a charade.

I would prefer that you leave it attached to my body, thank you very much.

I realize many of you out there wish that I would give myself a lobotomy, with a rusty drill bit. But, it ain't gonna happen! So, just get used to me annoying you, at every opportunity.

I am speechless....................I don't even know where to begin. What it is, why it is, or what good it is....................I will never comprehend. Must be a generational thing, because it looks "retarded, and gay!", to use Cartman-speak.

Haven't looked at the search stats, for quite some time. I think I remember why I stopped.

Check out some of these gems, in last month's batch:

1    4    10.26%    borbely audio
2    3    7.69%    who is joko homo audio

20    1    2.56%    jocko soundbite

Seriously...........someone Googled "jkenny", and some other stuff, and it found us?

Yep.

Page 2.

Well, page 2, if you make it "jkenny", as opposed to just "kenny". Must be a lot of Kenny Rogers fans still out there.

And the sock puppet thing...............

Really? That is Phred's calling card.

So, what happens when you Google that?

A lot of results, over at Greaser's Palace, where I kvetch about sock puppets. You have to go to page 2, before you find any "sock puppet" talk, that has anything to do with The Pub.

And, of course, as usual, it is about Phred.

Pinkmouse,
But you allowed 39 posts by MalichiConstant. This makes your credibility very low and feels like arbitrariness, not to use the word in my avatar, especially as the new member MC was under "moderation".

(Talking about Phred, his quitting, at the same time he had several sock puppets going. Classic Phred! Yeah, took them a long time to catch on that one.)

The Malachi Constant days were kind of fun.

I'm really hoping that this is what that Googler was thinking of:

Let's just say leaving it in public domain is my donation to the community. Community...........that is what they are all about. That is what they say when they pick Mods, who do stuff for the community.

Which almost always means they are involved in some sort of group buy. At least, that is what they did in the past. Too many mods, for us to keep up with. Besides, we had no impact, on who they selected, when we were members there. Safe to say we have zero impact, now.

Maybe it will leave me with a warm fuzzy felling, inside.

No............it is probably nausea.

Gee, we are not only "popular" with the CTC Blowtorch crowd, but Borbely's customers (boy, are they ever going to be disappointed!), guys wanting to see pics of other guys (and not necessarily nice ones), and also Squidbillies fans.

Is this a great country, or what!
