Time for a new entry. I'm not sure whether or not this qualifies as a UROL, but after sweating 10 minutes after going outside to wash the car, I couldn't help but create a new entry.
Sweat Factor is a single measure used instead of temperature or humidity and is the true measure of just how freakin hot it is on any given day.
Sweat Factor = 1000 / # of minutes before you begin to sweat. The lower the amount of time it takes, the higher the sweat factor. For me, today's sweat factor is a whopping 100. Early in the week it was closer to 1!
Obviously, this has ZERO science behind it, but I feel this is a truer measure of what you really want to know at the beginning of each day...is it a multiple shower day. Hmmm....maybe that's another measure to be considered.
Rule #6: Work in an IT field is virtually impossible without a computer.
And even if you have said computer, you better be able to log into it or it is worse than not having a computer in the first place. I'd have to say it's a form of "Techie Torture". You're staring at a perfectly capable PC that is perfectly incapable of helping you get any work done.
What's equally torturous is watching hundreds of e-mails pour into your Blackberry and not being able to reply to any of them because your inbox overflowed it's limits because you can't log into it to delete the incoming barrage of e-mail. Note to self...prior to having your PC reconfigured, clean out your inbox, dummie.
Well, that's my rant for the day. I'm off to sharpen my pencil.
