sense :: taste // cold tea

Okay, I know I’ve said this before, but it’s seriously time for me to look for a new job.

Among the places I’d absolutely love to work would be Google, whose offices seem to be quite lovely indeed. I don’t even know what location those photos are taken from, but still, it sems like such an amazing place to work. Hard work, I’m sure, but man what I wouldn’t give to be challenged by my actual work as opposed to how much crap I can put up with. Ah well, I’ll be out of school soon; it’s just a matter of time. I know I keep saying that too, but I seriously do think I’ll kick up the search when the time comes.

So today’s been a day of free stuff; I found a site that offers free icons for use on your computer or website (and I’ve been pondering finding a few favicons for my websites, now that so many of them have been redesigned or unveiled), and a couple of sites that offer free music, here(requires bittorrent), and here. Tasty! Don’t take my links as an endorsement though; I just found them and was warned that some of the music stinks, some of it rocks, and there’s something there for everyone of every taste, but you have to sift through it to find out. But hey, free is my favorite flavor, especially when it’s legal.

Speaking of free, I really like this band’s efforts at copy protection. A heartfelt hand-written note? Not the most high-tech, but definitely the best in my opinion. I’m definitely going to consider the words of the bandmembers on a handwritten postit note than I will some blaring legal advisory or that silly FBI Anti Piracy logo.

I don’t know if I mentioned it, but the Girl and I’s new monitors came, after the UPS guy tried to stick an infonotice on our door and not ring the doorbell or knock-luckily I saw him out of the peephole before he did it, otherwise I wouldn’t have had time to snag the infonotice off the door and run in front of his van. Scared the crap out of him, but that’s what he gets for trying to slack off and not give me my stuff.

Anyway.

We got our monitors, and I’m living it up in dual 20-inch monitor heaven, but even my setup can’t compare with this massive array of monitors. The servers behind it don’t hurt either, to tell the truth. It’d be kind of fun to play Quake 3 on that. (like they are in the first couple of images) Even so, I think I’ll head home and enjoy what I have.
