What I've been up to [Jan. 19th, 2005|03:16 pm]

[music |something something Kwanzaa? changing station now]

I've been all over the state the last month or so, but school starts up again next week, so I'm finally starting to pay some attention to that. Then there is the small (nay, minuscule) matter of my bank account, or lack thereof. Accordingly, I applied to a few places today. I also noticed that email is broken at csus. Maybe they'll fix it later.

Oh, and I'd like to take this moment to make fun of our state government for naming a data center after a politician. I mean, sure, you'd expect the Peter Wilson Memorial Sewage Lift Station, but really, the Stephen P. Teale Data Center?! Cursing a good profession, they are.

::dies laughing:: Of COURSE it's okay to name a sewage plant after a politician!

I swear I've seen it on the simpsons. Can't be more specific than that, though.

actually TDC (the Teale Data Center) is getting a new name because it's being merged with one of the other state data centers (Health & Human Services Data Center). the new consolidated data center doesn't have an official name yet.

I wonder if "Ofc Envir Hlth Hazard Assess" is a subset of Health & Human Services. I also wonder why they abbreviate their name.

I drove by the TDC the other day; I was impressed with the perimeter security. Other places don't have eight foot fencing and motorized gates. Rather, they have aposition open for the person who gets to design and implement said fence and gate.

can't say on the first one, cuz i don't have any experience with them.

and i've never actually been to TDC. hell, now that i think of it, i'm not even sure where they're located exactly.

Rancho Cordova, just off of White Rock road, near Zinfandel. Past the BofA building. You can't miss it -- looks like a prison without the watchtowers. I'd mention the exact address but for the current political climate. Besides, if anyone is that interested, information from teale.ca.gov, google, and mapquest will get you the correct answer in about three minutes of work.

see, I never go to Rancho, so that's prolly why i didn't realize it was there.
