Always remember to clear your download history if you are going to be interviewed about your internet habits…

Hehe..

I was showing a friend how to browse the internet on her PC one time and found that her son had a habit of not clearing his browsing history.  I deleted his history before she got in and looked around for herself, but it could have turned terribly embarassing for him if she’d found it.  I’m such a nice guy.

One of the laboratories I worked at was having some performance reviews, where the people from the head office came in and talked with each person to see what all was going on.  A guy from the entymology lab was being interviewed in his own office.  Right in the middle of his interview the custom-made screensaver on his computer came on.  It was a rather creative screensaver showing a bunch of grasshoppers with the faces of the people from the head office being decapitated by a giant preying mantis that had his own features.

Luckily for him, the interview had already been going downhill by that point, so his screensaver didn’t make any worse impression on the people than what they already had. . .

Wow, heh.  That’s pretty funny.  I wish I could understand what they’re saying.

What was the narrator saying?  Were the words I saw universal in any language or was he browsing beforehand in English and the interviewer unaware of their meaning?

I also wondered if the interviewer knew what the words said in English….obviously the computer user did. 

Accip, a few years ago I also drew some animations of a sort that were .... well ... I wanted to see if I could ACTUALLY draw them and then created a screensaver that I had on my computer at the time.  Just after the man I was dating arrived one evening, so did a couple of friends.  My computer screen was faced away from the living room area while we talked but the husband of my two friends who was standing by my computer suddenly stopped talking, his eyes very obviously on my computer screen and his mouth open.  Someone asked him a question and when he didn’t answer his wife walked over to the computer screen, got mute, then started to laugh. 

The guy I was dating started to move to the screen and I had to jump up VERY quickly to move the mouse to clear it.  I didn’t keep the saver going after that, though I still have it on disk and the animations as well…..I guess I figured I’d worked too many hours drawing them to just erase them.
