Pretty much spent my whole day trying to get subversion, ahnk, tortoisesvn and visual studio updated. I also began working on a new dialog to Adding Attachments that are not scanned. I’ve also decided that I need to create a user control that rolls up all the attachment functionality.
Today Nathan got a call from our boss because apparantly he “freaked out” the cleaning crew. About a week ago or so he wrote at the top of our white board which covers a whole wall of our shared office, “Erik is a terrorist supercell”. A few people that came by saw it and chuckled so he took it a little further. This time he wrote “Erik is an Al Qaeda sympathiser and gave material support to Osama Bin Laden in the months immediately preceding the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City”. The boss kindly asked him to refrain from terrorism jokes. Its pretty funny I can just see the lady come into our office to empty the trash can and to throw my styrofoam cup away that I keep writing “PLEASE DONT THROW AWAY” on every night and then noticing the whiteboard and turning pale. I bet she gathered all the cleaning people in the building into our office as they all gasped. I’m just wondering if they really thought that possibly I’m a terrorist or if they just didn’t appreciate the joke and were offended. Pretty sure I’m going to write something in arabic script up there tonight just to freak them out. Wonder if I’ll get in trouble for that? Wouldn’t it be racist to consider that a terrorism joke? Hmm maybe I should leave well enough alone. My luck those people already turned me over to the CIA and I’ll get strip searched everytime I enter an airport for the rest of my life.
