The previously linked to music video was shown to BB. He says, and I quote, "That contains zero percent metal."
"Why do you say that?"
"They're wearing fucking pirate costumes!"
"Dude, don't you like Slipknot?"
He was not amused.
The Zippy fail has been ramping up. Or we've become overly sensitive to it now that the boss has put us on track to be in-tune and let him know all fails. Anyway, yesterday ended in a pow-wow between BB, the boss, and myself, discussing how best to track Zipper's daily flail sheet. Bossman wants to track all incoming calls, all web activity, all desk phone conversations and, essentially, everything. He's looking for the nail in the coffin at this point, and wants as much as he can get before the firing squad.
Problem: Zippy is not, in fact, a complete idiot. The one thing he does consistently is remove himself from the proxy every morning before he begins his daily surfing routine. How do we know this? Not one trace of his IP address shows up in the proxy log over the past two months. Every hit should show in the long-logs, including internal addresses. Yet, not one from his IP. It's not an easy task to accomplish, and requires a certain skillset that, by his performance around the office, we would swear he does not have. Yet, there it is, in virtual black and white as it were.
The boss is not amused by this revelation.
Not MNS is NOT MNS
Some dude that used to work here thinks he's all awesome and shit and we should all fear his stupid ass. He's wrong. Let me point out how he's wrong.
If you are gonna gun fuckers down, the one thing you do NOT want to do is let them know ahead of time. This guy has been essentially writing it on billboards. He threatened some close coworkers to start with, got himself fired, then went out in a blaze of stupidity, ranting and raving about shooting the place up. Now he's come back four times we're aware of in vehicles without license plates and just sat outside, casing the place out, with his window open. Vehicles that we have perfect descriptions of because he sits there literally for hours, just watching the building. Out in the open. Did I mention with his window open so you can see him plain as day?
While the management scrambles to get "official papers" up in here so they can have him arrested for being on premises, I have a better proposed solution.
MNS, we need a removal during one of his "espionage" failure runs. I would say you could try to pick him up and train him, as he does appear to have enthusiasm, but I don't think he has the required brain power to learn actual skills.
