The (Sad) End of LulzSec

After LulzSec completed all their shenanigans, they've decided to saunter on back to the anonymous world. Unfortunately for them, aggravated hackers have posted most of their identity to small places around the net. It all seems like even anonymous can't stick together in the simplest of things, evident with all the infighting that's been happening for the past week.

Even though the legal system is getting close to finding and arresting LulzSec, will their legacy continue to be carried on by other small groups?

Passion Amongst Chaos

I'm sure as most of you have seen or heard news about all the riots that happened in Vancouver after the Canucks lost. Well, amidst all the violence, a couple decided to show the world an...unusual...side of riots. Cue the following picture:

The couple say it wasn't planned but the photo seems almost surreal, considering the events around them. The police in riot gear and the rioters in the background really give this picture emotion. Quite frankly, I love it.

Trolls and Lulz

Apparently, for the past ~24 hours, a group known as LulzSec has been DDoS'ing quite a few major servers. As I'm sure, there are tons of people that play Eve Online and some other games...all of which have been put down today by LulzSec's successful efforts.

Today's scores:
Everyone else:0

This is what's wrong with today's youth...

For the past few days I've seen numerous comments and other blogs discussing the latest violence by youth, except this time the aggressors are not boys...the aggressors are girls. The twist: No consequences for those girls. If it had been three boys attacking one girl, this would be national news and those boys would be tried as adults.

See for yourself!

Mondays: My new Fridays?

It started as a typical day today, getting up at 5:30AM to commute around 30 miles to get downtown. I had my coffee in hand and, as always, dreading the upcoming workload that's usual with Mondays. Before I set out for work, I made sure I had my project guidelines in order to direct the development team's schedule for the entire week. Although it felt like a Monday, I knew there was something strange about it, something akin to the anxious feeling of a Friday.

Pulling in to the parking lot, laptop and papers in hand while juggling my last bit of coffee, I noticed a co-worker walking towards me. You see, Dave, has always been the dramatic kind; if there's some small issue within the office you can trust on him to blow it out of proportion. "You can not believe what happened to Ted (our project manager)!", he said, and to which I responded "No, I just got here. What happened?". Apparently Ted had just been fired that morning due to the last project he managed and our entire work week was put on hold until a replacement could be found.

Everyone in the office was overflowing with joy, glad to know that we finally had one week to relax since we never took days off. Even asking Ted for days off caused his entire wrath to befall upon you and everyone around you. Those days were history.

I left early today, after the most relaxing day at work. Tonight I will plan things to do with the girlfriend and hopefully rekindle what my busy work life has smothered. I feel this week is going to be absolutely amazing!

A New Outlook On Life

   I'm sure we've all been there before, in a rut through life, not knowing who we are. Days and nights flow and enlightenment never visits, yet we yearn for it. The truth of the matter is that enlightenment never happens because we are afraid of it and afraid of the repercussions.

   My nightmare is my relationship. My girlfriend and I sit in silence most of the time, not knowing what to say to each other nor knowing what to do with each other. It has been like this for months now. Most would break up, but we're determined to stay together; although I don't see the point in staying together but she does. I'm afraid. Afraid of what I might feel if and when we do break up. Afraid of reaching out to her and her not being there. Ultimately, I'm afraid of myself. Enlightenment has yet to visit me and I'm yearning for it.
